Three Characters Concept Art

Contest Brief

Hello again, good artists, I'm once again looking for talented illustrators to help me design three characters, with each one being vastly different from the last. This will be a contest, so those who have delved into the anime/fantasy realm before and have drawn anthropomorphic creatures and humans regularly, I'm really hoping to catch your attention. I don't want any backgrounds with the pics, just line art with basic coloring. You can also put them in any pose you want, but you CANNOT put them all in the same pose. Please have them vary, preferably in accordance with the personalities I give them. Also, if you could have their names printed in whatever way on the pic, it would be appreciated.

Like before, I encourage artists to add tasteful nuances at their own discretion and style, while still keeping the overall character concepts in mind. Artists looking to flex their creative fingers with minimal employer input will most likely enjoy this contest. Good communication and understanding are of the utmost importance to me, so please reach out to me with any questions regarding the project you might have.

I have character bios finalized and they will be available for you to peruse. Please keep in mind the characteristics, color and other key attributes when drawing!

    Once the contest ends, I will announce the winner on Thursday 7/19 at 6 PM Central Standard Time. That should give me enough time to deliberate and muse over the top entries. Thank you all for participating and I implore you all to be on the lookout for my next contest starting next week on Monday! :D

    I've set this contest in my sights for a while, but I'm very, very apprehensive. I feel like you've already chosen a winner in those 5-stars. I would not go 100% full swing without the certainty of getting paid any amount. At the same time, I've read your character concepts. They're brilliant and elaborate, and I'd really love to flex my creative muscles and bring those characters to life! I'm still undecided about this. Your input/reply could help me make this decision :)

    I have a portfolio to give you an idea of what my style is:

      I'm sorry that I'm replying so late. But yes, there are plenty of great entries, 5 stars, that I'm considering, though I've yet to decide a winner. I will be hosting another contest next week if you would be interested in checking out that one. :)

      I tell you what. If your interpretation of Hansuke manages to enthrall me, I will pay for that one drawing separate at a third of the price, so Hansuke (my only human character) would be worth $67. If that interests you.

    Hi, are you looking for digital painting only? How about hand drawing with high resolution scanning?

      Hand drawn is preferred, but I will accept whichever works for you best and suits your own individual style.

    Hi! Are you searching for an anime style, like you put in the references or every artist can do their own style? As a visual representation, are those references important?

    • 2 months ago

      • 2 months ago

      Artists may portray the characters in their own style. The reference is just for how a nimbat should generally look.
