Illustrations for a children's book

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

Project Description:
I am looking for around 8 illustrations (give or take, but price can be negotiated if more illustrations needed), including a cover design, for a children's story about a little boy and girl and their imagination. Some images should be fastastical looking (e.g. space, stars, ships), while others will be more earthly images (e.g. a mother cleaning).

I will send over rough sketches of what I envision, but I need someone to put it into actual illustrations.

I also need someone to help flesh out the look and feel of the little boy and girl, as they are a crucial part of the story and I need them to be vibrant, beautiful and expressive.

The first 2 attachments are examples of the look and feel of the illustrations - looking for a fantasy-ish, dreamy look.
The last 2 attachments are examples of the kids ... I particularly like the look of the little girl in the last attachment.

Thank you
