We are seeking an illustrator to complete a series of 55 full-color drawings of weapons from different time periods and geographic locations - from the Stone Age through the Modern Era. A sample of weapons from the list would be:
- An atlatl
- A dirk
- A pike
- A katana and wakizashi
- A longbow
- An arquebus
- A cannon
- A PS90 machine pistol
- A minie rifle
- A sling shot
- A Turko-Mongolian sabre
- A yumi
The drawings should be at a high resolution and suitable for printing.
The chosen illustrator will need to not only be a skilled artist and be able to render accurate models, but be a competent researcher able to discover pictures of the chosen weapons for reference material.
We are attaching samples of drawings of weapons that we appreciate for their execution and personality. Your style will not have to emulate any of the three in particular, but the work you produce should meet or exceed them in terms of quality.
Please include a link to your portfolio. Please demonstrate high-quality illustrations in your portfolio.
Skill with digital painting is a bonus. A portfolio that demonstrates experience producing similar work -or- concept art for media (movies, video games, tabletop gaming, etc.) is a bonus.
Please have excellent English skills, preferably fluent. Thank you.
