A while ago, Marissa Meyer (author of the Lunar Chronicals) made a new contest for us all to conpete in to win an ARC of Cress. That's right, she's making us mork for it. Again. Here is what we have to do; Design the Lunar insignia. So here's mine:
I know what you want to say Come on, just throw it out there; I'm a horrible artist, it might not seem like it, but it looked better in my head.
What is the meaning behind this...'Drawing'? Well here it this;
We all know who the Lunars are, right? But if you didn't know, then get out of your house, drive to a bookstore, buy yourself a copy of Cinder and Scarlet, and read them till dawn. Then you come bakc to this blog, and read.
Anyway...This is the Lunar insignia, which supposedly means a Lunar designed it. As in, a Lunar who love his/her Planet. To design this insignia, I had to think like a Lunar. So I did; The Lunars believe they are the greatest, the sun is plain garbage, and that all should bow down to them. So in my design, I put 9 dots/stars surounding the moon; Those represent the other planets
which are very insignificant to a Lunar's eyes. The planets are connected, that represent the solar system, in which Luna is; the largest, in the middle, and (with a crown) royal.
That is why I designed my Lunar insignia this way. It is also drawn this way because I'm not a very good artist, so I left out very detailed details and made it simple. This idea's inspiration also came from the circle of fifths, which is a music thing: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Circle_of_fifths
I look forward to seeing the designs of others. If you want to win an ARC of Cress, then design your own Lunar insignia. But hurry, the contest end on; Midnight of Sunday-November 3rd, 2013.
