Description

We are working with an insurance agency that wants to introduce a animal mascot. We thought we'd discovered our star in a series of 170 royalty-free Amazon Tree frogs done by a French digital artist, but, unfortunately, he didn't audition well with our legal team, who thought he looked too much like a very well-known actor from a certain very well-known auto insurance company.

So, we're now issuing a cattle call for an illustrator to make us an similar, 3D amazon tree frog to compliment our client's new web site and to be the face of their social media campaigns. We're partial to tropical creatures, because of our client's desire to explore bi-lingual marketing to Hispanic audiences; however, we're open to considering other tropical critters as well.

SPECS

- Full Color
- 3 dimensional, avatar like design (See Attached Examples)
- Hi-Res JPG or EPS
- 5 Poses (Similar, but not identical, to the attached files)

      Greetings Toddtnilson

      I have uploaded 4 additional poses of my "bird executive", after you approved the character with my first pose.

      Thanks and regards

      I'm going to be reviewing all the designs tomorrow with my team but we may be opening it up for just a few more days to make sure we're receiving all the ideas we can get. That being said, though, we ended up with some *really* nice entries here, some of which will definitely be in the finalist round. Stay tuned and we promise not to keep you waiting long!

      One pose is enough for the first round, all. Thanks for clarifying. I'd rather see that you guys are moving the right direction first than have you do all five. These latest designs are getting closer to the mark. @Big_fam, I see that these are original. @remroute looking forward to seeing some! @Igneo I can see the potential in the parrot idea. Appreciate everybody's efforts... we're making headway!

      Hi Toddtnilson

      I re-read your brief and realised you are open to other tropical critters. Will try to make some other tropical character as time permits. :o)

      I dont know work with 3d, but I know artists that make it and really, to model it, to make textute, to set lights, all give a lot of work. If the characther is very well did too, of course.

      By the way, I will live here a draw that I make of a parrot sometime ago. Is totaly tropical animal, but it is in a germanic scene. lol

      If you enjoy it, so try make other tropical animals for this contest.

      Greetings!

      Greetings

      I just submitted one character in one pose. I was wondering if before the first deadline must we submit all 5 poses or is one pose enough.

      I have this clarification because I have illustrated my character from scratch without using a 3D Character software and hence will be illustrating the rest of the 4 Amazon tree frog pose. And thought I'll clarify first before I do the rest.

      Thanks and regards

      Have to agree with Igneo: 330$ for 5 poses with a good texturized 3D model seems to be unrealistic
