*** UPDATED CONTEST DETAILS *** .
*** UPDATED PRIZE*** Guaranteed prize is for 4 characters only. With a view to purchasing the last one via 1 to 1 invoicing for a further $100 after the winner is declared.
*** UPDATED SUBMISSION TIMEFRAME ***
Can you present at least one finished character, and either - sketches or partials (upper torso) for at least two others, or two finished drawings in order to be evaluated for final selection.
If you make the finals, can you complete a total of 3 characters by competition end.
If you win, can you ensure you have capacity to finish the remaining 2 with 5 days of competition end as I have programming scheduled soon after and you're characters will have to start work in their new office.
I hope this provides a timeframe to allow you to submit work to your desired level. There are some very talented folks entering and watching but I understand it was a lot of work in a short time under the old timeline.
Cheers and thanks - adam
Preferred format would be vector or layered photoshop. For target realism see attached examples -
An indicative backdrop that the characters will inhabit is also attached, try to balance your drawing style with the background
size not more than 1000 px height
Can you draw them in full body standing and face them towards the viewer as if in conversation. The game is POV 1st person and the characters should look directly at the user.
With regards to appearance you have a free reign but make ithem appealing and relatable to a worldwide audience.
Try to capture the suggested personalities below, but if you have an inspiration don’t be afraid to go off brief. Sometimes the best art comes that way.
You can make them attractive but nothing that’s going to cause a rating over PG13+ .
As always, have some fun or its just work. I hope you find this an interesting and enjoying project.
Will consider extension if a leading design requests it. Otherwise lets go!
CHARACTER TYPES -
Age: between 17 & 24
Personality: Eager to do good work but with a sharp sense of humour.
Age: between 30 & 39
Personality; a new age director whose ‘I don’t care look’ is measured down to the last nuance. Like all great young directors he has a thing for caps or other headwear and possibly sunglasses.
Personality: a dry humour and like all moneymen a well tailored suit. He would not look out of place on Wall Street. He knows you need him more that he needs you.
Personality; with wisdom beyond her years, she is always aware of appearance and always maintains the highest professional dress and facade. Hair up and perfectly manicured.
Personality; The next big thing on TV. With her attractive looks and perfected monotone news reading style it’s only a matter of time before you leaves the entertainment desk to anchor the 6 o’clock news which is what she really wants. Fill her up with ambition and make sure she knows she’s got people’s attention.
