Contest Brief

I need someone to hand draw and color pictures for a childrens book. I would prefer color pencil with pen and ink.
I need an illustrator for a childrens book about a transgender child. This book is part of a series of books that I will need the same person illustrating all books. I need hand drawn illustrations, I would like the pictures to be drawn and then colored with color pencils. This book will need 46 Illustrations.
I will need the same illustrator for this and at least 2 more stories. I will most likely have 5 or six books with these characters. Please color the illustration.

In these stories I would like Emma to be around 7 or 8 years old and Jack/Jackie to be around 5 or 6 years old.

This story is the most important project of my life so far. The $310 is for half the finished book. I will add the rest of the money when we are close to half way finished. There will be at least 2 more projects with these characters And I will need the same person to illustrate the other 2 books. I will pay around the same amount for the other.
For the contest I would like you to illustrate this verse,

One day he came out of the room
Wearing his sisters old dress.
He was twirling and spinning,
His hair such a mess.

    Hi! Is it ok if I submit rough sketches of the boy first, before I proceed with the coloring?

    I would like to know ... why is it important for you to be illustrated in a traditional way and not in digital?

    hello, I draw best with my digital tablet but I can do the hand drawn effect. i guess my question is do you require the actual hand drawings or can I still take part in the contest and provide you the photos in any file-type you require. Regards

      I want the illustrations to look hand drawn, if you can do that on digital tablet then ok.
