I'm writing popular science books
What's your vision?
I am looking for a series of seven illustrations for my upcoming ebook "the new biography of the solar system" (working title). The book explains the evolution and current status of our solar system including all the 8 planets. The images should have a similar, recognizable style. I am looking for the following illustrations - please look at my links to see some examples (please don't copy them). You have all artistic freedom as long as the science behind it is still right (like the sun should not be larger than on Earth when it is seen from Jupiter). Feel free to ask. Mercury Perspective: From the surface. Features: Sun 2,5 times larger than from Earth. Rocky world. Thin atmosphere means black sky. http://www.scientificamerican.com/a http://www.zeit.de/wissen/2011-03/p http://www.posterlounge.de/die-sonn Venus Perspective: from the surface Features: Many volcanoes, thick atmosphere, lava streams, rocky world, many clouds http://www.raumfahrer.net/news/astr…2856.shtml http://lichtecho.blogspot.de/2010/0…venus.html http://www.netzeitung.de/spezial/we…27770.html http://www.posterlounge.de/landscha…30923.html Mars Perspective: On the slopes of Valle Marineris Features: Valle Marineris - think Grand Canyon, but much larger. 6500 meters deep, other side is 7000 kilometers away. http://www.scientificamerican.com/a…=8-wonders http://wallpapers-diq.com/de/11__Th…_Mars.html http://de.123rf.com/photo_1755580_r…-sehr.html Jupiter Perspective: inside the atmosphere, looking at the Red Spot Features: Red Spot, seen from inside the atmosphere.

To be eligible as the winner you'll have to provide at least five of the seven images. For the remaining two I will pay another $80 each. Usually, as you can see from my other competitions, if I see more high quality content, I do select more than one winner or buy more designs than the winning design. Final result should be 2048x1536 pixels.

Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
Matthias Matting collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
