I'm looking for an Illustrator for a children's book. The book is one that my family and I are creating. It's something that's been on my 'bucket list', but now it's actually happening!! The book is Called Plants vs Giants. My children have come up with the story line etc. I'm looking for someone who can create images that reflect my children's imagination. The manuscript will be given to the person chosen for the job, As this is a small project, funds will be limited however I'm also aware that quality does reflect price.

Hello! I would like for someone to draw a picture of my character for my roleplaying game. The character is for the table top roleplaying game "dungeons and dragons" and the character is a male Human Bard. Specifics for the character: The character comes from a circus backround. I want the clothes to be colorful and cheerful but also traveller friendly (not over the top). I want him to have a hat with a feather in. I want him to have a staff with some colorful cloth in each end (with purpose of using it in some act in the circus). I want him to carry a Lute (on his back or something). I want him to have travelling gear with him in some sort of bag. The general feel of the picture should be a feeling of excitement of travelling and discovering the world. I want him to stand on a dusty road looking ahead ready to leave on an adventure. I would like a close relationship between me as a customer and you as the creator. It would be nice to have as much input on the drawing as possible. I have attached a picture just to get a general idea of what I want.

I'm in the early prototype stage of designing a new tabletop game and am looking to decide on a theme before I go further with it. The plan is to offer three or more different styles, and post them online to see which theme and style the public prefer. You will be credited in the body of the post. The themes I'm thinking of initially are Feudal Japan, Classic Fantasy, and Military. Feel free to add your own ideas too, why not militaristic pandas?! I'm looking for the following pieces: - One Infantry unit in each style - One Artillery/Range unit in each style - One Tank/Cavalry unit in each style - One Forest Tile for each style (square) - One Mountain Tile for each style (square) - One Plains Tile for each style (square) I'm not looking for anything especially polished at this stage, concept sketches would be fine. This could potentially lead on to you creating the final artwork for the game, including box art, game manual etc. Please provide links to a portfolio/examples of your work I have also added below some links to art styles I like http://static.giantbomb.com/uploads/original/20/205557/2728265-okamihd_hero_vf1.jpg http://www.thatvideogameblog.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/09/armello.jpg

For an unofficial Comic & Toy Convention I need artwork. The theme will be cartoons and movies of the 80's like: He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, Knight Rider, Transformers, Spider-man etc. Preferably I would like someone who has affinity with these 80's cartoon, comic & film characters. A portfolio is very welcome. For the first task I need a collage with different characters and some loose items drawn and colored. The budget is not high but the artist / illustrator will be credited on the website and the work will be ongoing until September. This means that we will keep hiring the artist / illustrator during this period for new work. Note that the delivered work will become ours to use for any purpose. Skype contact to discuss ideas and exchange drafts and proper English communication is mandatory.

Character Concept Art & Design We require concept art to help guide the Visual Direction for an Exciting, African, Science Fiction, Action Adventure Animated Show currently in development called Concord. There is also a rough teaser trailer for the show but it should not be assumed that the designs in the trailer are necessarily the way the characters will look so feel free to explore your own interpretation of the characters. Here is the link to the rough teaser trailer: https://youtu.be/-AT8hIqoqak The designs should be distinctive and appealing to an audience of boys ages 6 to 12. The show should be like an animated comic. The characters’ faces should be attractive and easy to read. We like the design sensibility of iconic 1980s shows like He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, M.A.S.K., Thundercats, Silverhawks and Saber Rider and also contemporary shows like Ultimate Spiderman, Star Wars the Clone Wars, Ben-10, Fantastic Four World’s Greatest Heroes, The Avengers Earth's Mightiest Heroes and Justice League.

Hello - We would like to make two new illustrations based on our existing logo. #1 - Cartoony: This would be a more cartoon style, hand drawn version of our turtle. The turtle would need to be in a standing position, holding and looking thru a magnifying glass. The turtle can be younger, as opposed to the older grown turtle in our logo. Should also appear to be hand colored, not perfect. (Please see the attached shirt sample for an idea of the style) #2 - Sketch: This illustration would be a simple black and white, hand drawn outline of our turtle. We would like a version with heart-shaped glasses, and one without. (Please see the attached shirt sample for an idea of the style) I need final files in illustrator format. Thank you!
