We came down to the decision, that the character should be a unique monk. But not a monk that you would identify to any religion. We want a universal monk.
Please also note, that we dont want some kind of fat monk, as people could think he is catholic. He should have an aura of inner peace, calmness, happiness. That means no over-the-top smiling but kind of a always happy smile. He should have an likeable and trustful effect on people.
The designer should provide us viarity of 5 simple expressions. If somebody creates all 10 for us, the chance to win is, of course, higher.
1. Neutral, without any situation, frontside.
2. Meditating position
3. Both hands up (will be used to act like the monk would hold photos)
4. The monk points to left or right with his finger (not middle-finger) ;-)
5. The monk enjoys the smoke of an incense stick
6. The monk holds a microphone in his hand (like he interviews someone)
7. The monk looks like he would deliver a parcel to somebody (holding it)
8. Laying and relaxing
9. Walking on a way
10. The monk hugs somebody (ordinary man)
IMPORTANT NOTE: Please start with the neutral monk. We dont want you to waste your time unnecessary (in case the neutral monk isnt our taste).
ALSO NOTE: The winning designer will most likely get further jobs from us.
PS: In the end, we need a vector file for each of the expressions.
