I am looking for a concept artist to concept/design a mascot/character for a video game prototype based on a provided description. This may require multiple (aproximately 2-3 variations) 'thumbnail' or draft drawings to be created while refining the character. Once the character concept draft has been finalized and approved, I would like a model sheet (orthographic depiction) created. The model sheet should contain an orthographic front, side, and back view of the character.
I would prefer a semi-cartoon style for the concept, similar to concept styles from creaturebox.com. Since the concept is being modeled in 3D at a later time, skill with form/shape is a must. Concept can not contain vague or abstract 2D design elements that can not exsist in 3D models. Must be able to see solid form/shapes for modeling.
The character itself is a mix of a common animal, and a common fantasy animal. I can provide a detailed description via PM or email, including some picture reference for inspiration/example. I must warn you, the concept will be 'cute' and 'snarky' in nature. Please have experience with putting emotion into characters.
If the job is done very well, there are several more characters to design, and several scene stills needed for dialog portraits and loading screens. Must sign NDA if bidder is chosen for multiple concepts. All concepts must be turned over as buyers property. No royalties from game sale, unless it nets millions of course. Fully credited in game.
IMPORTANT: Please provide work examples. If you do not provide examples of previous work, you will not be considered.
