Looking for a comic artist to design a series of illustrations that will be used for an online, animated short film. Titled: “Legacy Anew: A Lonesome Road”, the short film will be uploaded to YouTube in early 2017.
The artist will be given a roughly sketched storyboard and shot breakdown to work from. Concept designs have also been created for some of the main characters, and references will be supplied for supporting characters and environments.
In terms of style, I am looking for one that is semi-realistic. The story deals with science fiction and fantasy elements. A comic book art style is preferred but not essential. The artist should be able to convey emotions and feelings of each character through their expressions and actions.
To give you an idea on how each shot will be animated, it’s best to think of this project as less of a traditional animation, and more of a high quality animatic. I have included an example of what I mean by this in the link below:
There are a total of 35 shots required for the film including characters close up and at a distance, backgrounds, and landscapes. Certain shots have been broken down into separate parts (e.g. Shot 3a & 3b) where necessary, this is to allow additional expression changes or actions in the same composition.
The artist must be experienced in the use of Adobe Photoshop, and must be able to send 16:9, high resolution PSD files of each shot. I would like to have this job completed by December or the first week in January at the latest.
