We are looking for an illustrator to work with on an ongoing basis to develop illustrated characters to be used in animation and in marketing materials. We would like the characters to be drawn in a hand drawn line art style to complement the rest of our look and feel (please see attached packaging for reference as well as additional style references). The product is a travel good and the characters will be a male and female travellers which will be posed using the product and travelling around the world. The characters should not look too child-like in style and should have a distinct personality. The characters should also not look too 'anime' in style.
The characters can be in 1 colour or possibly 2 (black and blue).
We are interested in initially developing a male and female character and will then commission further poses and scenes containing these characters. We will require the final characters to be delivered as vector artwork.
Please quote on development of an initial male and female character including some options for different styles.
Please provide examples of previous character work you have done and any similar hand drawn style illustration you may have done.
