Sci-Fi and Fantasy Art


I need three series of illustrations. These are fantasy characters in a scifi/futuristic setting. The designs should be inspired by stylized impressions of medieval armoring, using modern and futurist materials and design revisions.

Set 1:

9 character portraits.

Highly stylized and gritty.

Represents a key character and a key character type in the setting; must be detailed and distinctive.

No generic high fantasy poster art or simplistic anime sketches.

High quality book illustration styles are ideal, but more "realistic" western comic art, pop art, and *detailed* anime-like styles are also appropriate.

Set 2:

12 scene illustrations.

Imagery and surreal touches are important.

Should represent a some dark, visceral version of high fantasy.

Complexity is important, as is symbolism; must be able to include several elements in subtle and varying ways.

A wide variety of styles are welcome, fitting the requirements.

Set 3:

I need a set of crests and shields redrawn by hand, in high quality. Stylistic changes and flourishes are welcome, but the basic design must be followed. I have at least 13 of them to be done and probably upwards of 21. I have low quality drafts for most of them and exact instructions for all. An understanding of heraldry is helpful, but not required. These can be "quick" drawings, as long as the necessary structure and details are added. They need to be "nice" but not as involved or high quality as the above 2 sets.

All files must be delivered in high resolution format, preferably TIFF but PNG is acceptable. All art must be delivered in BLACK AND WHITE. You may be asked to provide coloring at a later point, but that would be an additional project.

Please tell me that you understand that you are granting me exclusive publication and licensing rights to any work purchased. You will retain attribution rights and will be credited as the creator of the art. You may include the traditional artist's signature in a discreet fashion. You may also republish the work as part of your portfolio and list the publication and uses on your CV.


Also, do not let the project budget overly influence your decision. Ask what you believe is as fair price for your work.

Please include three science fiction, futurist, surrealist, or fantasy samples of your work. Bids that do not include samples or a specific bid will be ignored. Finalists will be asked for a customized sample of work, which will be paid for ONLY IF ACCEPTED AND USED.

If your samples are Photoshop retouched Poser images, or similar work, you WILL NOT be considered. I have no particular objection to CG work, but the generic looking 3D model art will get your bid placed in the circular file.

If you fail to provide the samples and bid information as outlined above, You WILL NOT be considered. Low resolution, thumbnail, and other poor quality samples are not acceptable. External links are fine for additional samples, but they are NOT a substitute for quality samples delivered in the PMB.

Good luck and happy bidding.
