This contest is for a screenshot for the iTunes App Store to promote my fantasy role playing mobile game called "Archlord". The screenshot is for potential buyers so the graphics should be really powerful and indicate high production value with fun and excitement. The theme is high-fantasy much in the tradition of the Lord of the Rings Trilogy. The graphics should be similar and have the same look and feel as what you would find in high-end comic books from DC, Marvel or Dark Horse.
Here is a complete description of the game: http://wiki.wesnoth.org/GettingStarted
Note: The game will be marketed under the name "Archlord" _not_ Wesnoth.
Please review the description of the game and the four (4) App Store screenshot examples provided before you submit your graphics.
There are many types of characters to work with including human knights, elves, orcs, dragons, dwarves, and even zombies. Please use your imagination and make the graphics look really professional. Some suggestions for possible characters to depict are angry knights slashing with broadswords, sexy elf women with long bows, stout dwarves with battle axes or scary, ugly orcs. Dragons can also make interesting graphics, especially fire breathing ones. You can also go to Google Images and type in "Wesnoth Characters" for ideas. I'm a man, so sexy elf girls are never a bad thing. =)
The iTunes App Store allows for a total of five (5) screenshots. I didn't want a contest for all screenshots so as not to waste your valuable time. The winner of the contest will be allowed to provide the additional four (4) screenshots at a lower price since they will require less work. The other four (4) will use actual screenshots from the game and have a single character announcing a key feature or attribute of the game for the potential buyer. The first screenshot is the most important from a marketing standpoint.

72 dpi, RGB, flattened, no transparency
