I am posting this project here because I do not have a huge budget and payment is based off of future sales.
This is a royalties based, long-term gig. I am an illustrator but do not have the technical skill, execution or speed to bring certain elements of my work to life. I currently have a book series out Vol 1 and I need to have activity/coloring books that branch off of 8 different girls. What I need is line art characterizing them in various fun, carefree poses/scenes in line art only. The images need to be Line art ONLY, transparent background, 300dpi and will be made into coloring/activity books. For each book sold you will earn a 30% royalty based off of net earnings. Possibly more depending on the success of the books.
I am in a niche market that is centered around clients of African descent so please consider this before applying.
********My preference is for an ANIME ARTIST with a style that closely matches my own or is able to mimic my style.********
For example (click the link below to see my style):Nigerian Daughter
According to her bio I might ask for a scene depicting her in different outfits, taking pictures, because she loves photography or shopping for jewelry at a market, at the beach or blogging on her computer, riding a bicycle, smelling flowers etc. they do NOT need to be full body and can be shown from different perspectives. The line art should be smooth, clean and easy for a child to color, so not too busy.
You will need to sign a confidentiality agreement, copyright release, royalty agreement and I will own all copyrights on work as it relates to my characters.
If you commit to working with me, the terms will be for one girl and at atleast 10 pages of line art for her. Not every page will center around a full scene. Remember, this is an activity book so your art will be incorporated around whatever activity is presented in the book.
I will pay $50.00 paypal for each girl of the 8 girls. You will need to sign a new agreement for the start of each new girl. You will be paid half for the first 5 scenes and half for completion of the last five and as stated before, you will earn royalties on the books as well as credit for the artwork on the front or back cover.
Please be advised that I may require the EDITABLE source file for some of your line art for possible coloring later and use in images for marketing on other items (there would be royalties for that as well) or if we decide to use certain images on the book's cover. I will pay additional for you to do the book cover if you are interested in doing it yourself.
I hope this is clear enough. I am looking forward to working with the artist with the demonstrable skill who is interested in helping me create my vision. I know it isn't huge money but it is a dream of mine and I know it will be successful.
I am really interested in cute, pretty and fun, so if this similar to your style I'd love to work with you!
