Colorful cartoonish graphics needed

Avg Bid (USD)
Project Budget (USD)
$250 - $750

Project Description:
I need someone to draw the graphics for my mobile game. The game is for kids in age from 5 to 10 and the overall theme is ZOO (animals, surroundings and so on). I would like the graphics to be simple and colorful. I imagine that the style should be something like the attached image, just a bit more professional and with a lot more variations in the surroundings. The workload will be around 15 animals, 6 houses with 6 characters, surroundings (ground, trees, bushes and so on) and few other elements. The game will be interactive, so most of the graphics should be draw “disassembled” (see attached image for a sample of this). By having the graphics this way I will be able to animate it and reuse it in different situations in the game. I need the graphics in a common vector file format (.psd or .ai).

- Good Photoshop experience with a cartoonish drawing style.
- Only vector graphics (.psd or .ai format).
- Bitmap/raster images will not be accepted.
- Layers, styling must be clearly labeled and separated to show work.
- Files should be delivered in a well structured directory with a intuitive naming convention.
- Good English writing skills
- Willing to make minor adjustments or rework if necessary
