I have written a children's book geared toward mainly 7-8 year old girls. It is a fairy tale book. I need an illustrator who is capable of doing original Fantasy Children's Book illustrations. I have 16 pages of artwork for my story. The artwork consists of realistic drawings of princess, prince, castles, horses, ballroom crowd scenes, ladies in waiting, guardsmen.
I need an illustrator who is good with backgrounds and facial expressions to convey the mood of the characters. I already have rough layouts of what I want the drawing compositions to be so the illustrator does not have to come up with their own ideas however I am open to input from the artist's point of view.
