Pelican Cartoon Character in Illustrative vector style.

  • Status: Pending
  • Prize: $100
  • Entries Received: 80

Contest Brief

We currently need an update to our cartoon character mascot. Originally created 30 years ago, it needs to be redesigned and updated.

The mascot is a pelican. A tropical bird from the Pacific Coast of Mexico.

We need at least 8 different poses (body positions). Depending on price, we may do up to 25 poses. This contest is only for 1 position. We understand the 1st pose will cost more since the character needs to be redesigned, a lot of work will go into getting the details right (eyes, personality, body/head ratio, etc.). We included as many details as possible to prevent redesigning. Please expect there to be modifications.

Once we like the character, you will be paid for this first illustration. Then, we will hire you to immediately create 8 additional poses of the same character. We can do it on a per/pose basis. With the understanding that each additional pose will cost about $20USD each

If we continue to like your work ethic, we will do a total of 20 poses of the same character.

There is a possibility we will create a second character. A flamingo. Still undecided. If we decide to create the flamingo, it will be a matching style as the pelican (They are friends)

------------------------------------
Image format
------------------------------------
The cartoon vector needs to have a transparent background as it will be used on various marketing materials such as website and brochures.

The cartoon vector can have supporting background items such as waves in the water, or a palm tree, but these background items cannot overpower the image, or look as if they are inside the "square" images border.

Must be a scaleable vector in a commercial format such as Photoshop or Illustrator, and must also provide a transparent .png in high resolution (about 2500x2500 pixels).


------------------------------------
Character Samples
------------------------------------
- I am attaching samples of quality that I am looking for.

- I am also attaching samples of UNACCEPTABLE designs. It needs to look professionally done.

- I am also attaching the current mascot and many of his poses so you know what I am referring to.

- Before you begin, I will email you a zip file with many more samples of what we want and don't want. I will also include many more variations of each pose we are looking for.

------------------------------------
Character Personality
------------------------------------
The pelican mascot must:

1. Must show great emotion and personality (Very happy, very excited, very motivated). It must have facial expressions with life in its eyes, but not over exaggerated.
2. Must not show aggression
3. Must have unique poses doing various activities (swimming, tennis, basketball, yoga, zumba, etc)
4. Must be Uniform. Each pose must be proportional to each other. Can't look as if they are 2 completely separate mascots. The integrity of the design must be uniform across each illustration.
5. Lot of emphasis in facial expressions, body language and eyes. Since the character does not have a voice.

------------------------------------
Character Poses
------------------------------------
There are 21 poses below. #10 is for 3 distinct poses.

1. Welcome
2. Relaxing in Pool (swimming)
3. Zumba (dancing)
4. Yoga
5. Tennis
6. Gym (holding light weights)
7. Drink in hand, sitting down, relaxing
8. Holding a vertical pole

      Thanks, I'm working on it, I haven't started to vectorize it yet, but I'd like to upload a sample of a similar work I did of a magpie mascot. The style isn't quite like the one you want, but still I'd like you to check it out. I already have an idea of what you'd like.

    Hi! Can you, please, attach the samples mentioned in the brief. Also, i think it would be helpful to attach the current mascot, so we can base the new one on it, thanks in advance! Regards!
