I received a press release titled “Design the cover for Grimm Fairy Tales contest!” I thought, ok, good for aspiring artists. Then I read on. Turns on that what they’re looking for is really cheesecake pictures.
Getting in the Halloween spirit Zenescope Entertainment is holding a contest asking YOU to play dress up. If you have ever had an idea for a comic book cover and what it should look like now is your time to show us what you’ve got.
As you may or may not know, we have sold out of our first printing of Grimm Fairy Tales #1, 2, & 3 and we’ve decided to do a LIMITED re-print run of each book.
Dressing up as Red Riding Hood or the Big Bad Wolf for Halloween this year? Can you pull off a hot Cinderella or do you and your partner make a good Hansel and Gretel?
We want YOU to come up with the cover concept by dressing up in costume, posing exactly how you would like to see the cover drawn, snapping a photo, and emailing it to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will choose 3 finalists for each cover and YOU the fans will decide the winners by voting in the forum section at www.zenescope.com.
Here’s the original versions of those three covers. They all feature busty women in very skimpy versions of fairy tale character costumes. The emphasis seems to be less on design and more on how the pictures look, especially with the phrase “show us what you’ve got”.
