    The 3rd cartoon is for the election / referendum on Thursday. So i need to complete this competition early by 12 British time Wednesday. If no other suitable entries arrive then are you able to complete formalities by then?

      Richard Head is not a famous character. It is a respectable English name, very proper ..., but there is a slang form which is an insult. Richard Head will appear in a number of cartoons so the cartoon character needs to be recognisable .

      Thanks for appreciating my work voodoo. Maybe because it has "hard" for a second syllable. I certainly wouldn't want to have Dick as my nickname.

    AZapanta I like the cartoons you have produced. The two girls in the armchair general will appear in future cartoons, as will Richard Head. So these characters need to be recognisable over a series. Cameron & Merkel are not clearly recognisable.

    I was expecting hand drawn diagrams similar to the examples provided. I assumed an artist would scan the drawing into a computer. The two entries so far are not like the example cartoons I provided.

    Re the comments on budget increases; Guys, if you really believe there should be a prize increase, then maybe you should trust your own judgement; anyone who enters should be able to produce with pencil and paper a recognisable copy of one of the cartoons i provided in 10 minutes. Outline and face expressions. If you are unable to do this then the skills match is not there. You should know before you enter - trust your judgment.

    I rejected one entry as the two characters that I described in the competition were not present in the drawing.

    +stentor11 All I am saying is the art students put in there time that is why it looked so easy to you...regarding bids and competitions this hosting site disagrees with you, they are not the same thing here.

    +rohitgururani4 , I don't see them born with pencils in hand. Nevertheless, I saw arts students doing that at college and remember how good they were. And to me, bidding for projects or competitions is the same process.

    I hadn't thought about that! Good question. I don't need an exact size so you may choose for the best visual appeal. The cartoons here will stand alone. They dont have to fit in with anything else.

    yes, they were born with pencils in there hand none of them started drawing on the first day of college...and Guess what this ain't a bidding there is another section for that here in freelancer where one will post a project and many will bid.This an open contest and here in chat board we can ask for an increase in prize if we see a contest is undervalued and its totally up to you to oblige our request.

    Hi stentor, can you provide a specific height and width requirement?

    I have spent the last 10-15 years bidding for public contracts in software with the European Union. There every contract can attract over 200 companies competing for the work. That is normal. In the private sector it is more usual for 4 or 5 companies to compete for work via competitive bids. This scale of competition for EU work is routine, and the bids can take a lot of effort. I am looking for this competition to identify not just a single winner, but also a few people who can produce good quality cartoons for shortlist on future competitions. There is always a learning curve for bidders to understand what the client wants and i am happy to provide feedback.

    At college I saw 17 & 18 year old students produce drawings like these during coffee break in student cafe. They liked drawing their fellow students. Maybe they had practised for years before.

    It takes years of practice to reach 10-20 min duration to finish a drawing, and by the way there will be multiple submissions by multiple artists and out of all one will get the prize money on which he/she will pay commission to the hosting site, so prize money should worthy enough for an artist to put his/her 10 or 20 minutes.

    I have seen people do these drawings in 10-20 minutes each. I have a number of competitions to post, and i want to shortlist good people who have the right talent.
