I have written a children's book and I am looking for a number of high quality, full-colour illustrations.
The book is aimed at 5-7 year olds and is mainly about a duckling. Other characters include dogs, a cat and a bear. I am looking for cartoon, Disney-style drawings of very cute animals.
I'd like the illustrations to be cute and very colourful - they must be appealing to children.
Smaller details such as facial expressions are essential.
The total number of images required has not been finalised, however there will be approximately 40-50 images required.
Each illustration must be full-colour. Detailed backgrounds are not required.
Once a bid is accepted, I will email the winning bidder a full copy of my story. The areas of text which need an accompanying illustration will be highlighted, and I will add some additional information about how I envisage the illustration to look. Please then provide me with a sketch so that I can comment and ask you to make changes as necessary.
Except for the title character (the duckling), the other characters in the story (the dogs, cat and bear) are based on actual soft toys that I have. I will provide photos of these toys for each picture, for you to base the illustrations on.
The winning bidder will be contacted for additional work in the future, if desired.
I look forward to your bid!
Please provide a sample coloured illustration of a very cute duckling along with your bid. I will base my decision on the qualitiy and 'cuteness' of the samples that I receive. You may like to put a watermark over your illustration in order to protect your work.
Any bid that does not include include a sample as described above will be rejected.
***How to Bid***
You are bidding on the price per illustration, NOT on the whole project. This is because I do not know as yet how many illustrations will be required.
Payment will be made by paypal on an interim basis. Once an illustration has been completed and finalised, I will pay you via paypal. You may choose to do the illustrations in batches or one at a time - either way, I will pay you for the completed illustrations as and when they are provided to me. By submitting your bid you are agreeing to these payment terms.
***One final note***
By bidding on this project, you agree that I own the rights to the illustrations once I have paid you for them.
1) Include your sample illustration of a duckling; and
2) Bid per illustration, NOT for the whole project.
