This is a test project to find the best Illustrator for a very large job. Test job (this job) will include a sketch of one illustration and final black and white rendering of 1/4 of that sketch to check for final quality and delivery output.
You must love character design and be able to render emotional details and consistent characters. If you can't draw the difference between surprise and shock do not apply. Each final rendering is more graphic novel scene than comic book panel.
This job is an audition for the first two books in a series of juvenile fantasy fiction. Ages 7-12. Full page, high resolution pen & ink drawings or vector. Page size: 11 1/2 x 18 1/2 inches. Illustrating the major scene for each of the ninety-one chapters. Emphasizing emotion and action. Includes character design, locations and related environments. Full job: 91 black and white illustrations. See attached style sheet for example looks.
This will be a big job. You must have the ability to visualize from the written story, design and sketch drafts, be positive when integrating client feedback and work in a disciplined manner to finish 2+ illustrations per week until entire job is completed. Books are written, can start immediately.
