Win! Design A Priest Comic Book Cover For Prizes

Posted by April 28, 2011 Comment

Priest 3D is in cinemas May 6th, but you can win tickets to see it early, as well as lots of other good prizes, by submitting your own Priest cover design to Bleeding Cool.

In the film, Paul Bettany stars as an exiled warrior priest, thrown out by his Church, who currently rule the dystopian universe he lives in. Living in obscurity, he is forced to break his vows when a group of savage vampires kidnap his niece. Here’s the trailer, and there’s more to check out on the film’s official Facebook page.

So, how do you win? And what do you win? Read the following:

We’re offering budding cover artists the chance to paint or draw an ‘official’ Priest comic cover to celebrate the launch of new kick-ass Sony Pictures movie based on the Korean ‘Man-wha’ comic book series by Min-Woo.

You might want to stick roughly to the style of the previous comics but possibly incorporate characters and looks from the movie too. The winning entry will be judged by a comic-book legend and sent to the director of the film and ultimately sent to the creator of Priest himself for their enjoyment too. Glory!

The winner will also receive a Sony bloggie™ touch Mobile HD snap camera, a fun official Priest robe-style Snuggie (see right) and tickets to see a preview of the film on London 4th May (no travel included).

Because the screening is on the 4th, we’re making midnight on the 2nd our deadline for this.

Here are some tips on how to appeal to the judges:

  • Make sure your cover is related to Priest. Check out the comics, watch the trailer, look at some images from the film.
  • Consider mixing the style of the original comics with some of the imagery and characters from the movie adaptation.
  • Have your own style, the Priest comics had a variety of cover styles, black and white, colour, drawn, painted.
  • Avoid too much photoshop, because we’re looking for a classic “comic book cover” feel, not “movie poster”

When you have your entry ready, send it through to me by e-mail. Good luck.
