Contest Brief

The contest winner will get $50. For runners up who make a good cartoon I may pay $10 or more so that I have a variety of options. The only guarantee is the contest winner will get $50. The cartoon must be acceptable to me.

The theme of your illustration is a grasshopper having fun. It should be a cute grasshopper cartoon having fun in a very specific way.

See the attached image both in jpg and eps file formats for the model to use. I have rights to use this image. Please do not use the attached image for any purpose other than this contest. If I don't purchase your uniquely created cartoon, then you may use your own work as you wish. Please do not merely take this image and add costumes and props. The grasshopper may look the same as this one but must be in a new unique pose and be illustrated by you. It's safer to keep the art style the same as the attached image.

The focus is on the grasshopper character and not the environment the grasshopper is having fun in. Use your judgment for costume, props, background color or minimal scenery.

The image borders should be square, not portrait or landscape.

Some ideas for a cute grasshopper having fun include: a grasshopper having fun playing outside and interacting with nature or other creatures. One idea is a grasshopper jumping through a rainbow.

It may also be a grasshopper cartoon doing human activities: A fat grasshopper smiling while eating pizza, one eating an ice cream cone, an MMA grasshopper, baseball player grasshopper, football player grasshopper, basketball player grasshopper, volleyball, rapper grasshopper, rock n roller grasshopper, surfer grasshopper, skateboarder grasshopper, a hipster grasshopper, a hippy grasshopper, etc..

It can be even more creative, like a grasshopper traveling through space on a rocket, a grasshopper standing on Mars.etc...

Or think of your own idea of a grasshopper having fun. If you see an entry made before you, try to avoid depicting the same fun activity, unless it's poor quality and you know you can do much better. If I purchase your work I'll ask for png, jpg, ai and eps files. Thanks in advance.

UPDATE: After seeing the first batch of entries I need to reiterate some things. Please read every instruction before posting an entry.

I want to give a reminder that the image should have a square boundary, not be portrait or landscape layout. There should be one grasshopper in the image and the character should be zoomed in on, but not zoomed in too much. There should be enough border that I can see the entire character from a preview image without cutting part of it off.

The grasshopper must be cute and must be having fun.

I am looking for an image that focuses on a single grasshopper character having fun.

Don't provide too much detail on a real life grasshopper insect. The idea is to think of it like a cute grasshopper cartoon person and not an insect. That is what I see in the model I provided.

You can try to submit a different style and color and try to convince me, and so far some have and have made it even better, but it's safer to stick to the model I provided.

But please don't copy and paste the same image. Make it your own illustration.

SECOND UPDATE:
I'm starting to notice entries have been downloaded from the internet and posted as if it's original. Please don't do that. I'm only accepting original work. It's ok to get ideas but you must put your own work into your entry.

    First I'm looking for entries that are listed for $10 and I have given 4 stars to. I'll be selecting entries to buy over the next few days. If $10 is too low for you I'll chat with you on Monday to see if we can negotiate a price.

    As I said in my job description I may offer $10 to entries that do not win. I expect I will want to buy many of these entries, so keep them listed even if you do not win. Thanks for all the interest and good work on this project.

    one way to make sure the grasshopper isn't too big is to look at the preview in the list of entries. If you can see the entire grasshopper then it's good. If part of the grasshopper is cut off then you need to change the borders somehow or shrink the grasshopper. Try to make the image square if possible.

      yes, instructions for file formats are if I buy it from you. As long as I can see it, the file format of contest entry doesn't matter
