Project Description

Long Term Project - over 1 year of work -

I want you to provide me a bid per picture - more details below.

Each month there will be approximately 45 images / puzzles / with about 20 of those needing animation to create for the first year,
approx. 25 images a month thereafter ....

I am looking for someone affordable, reliable, flexible and with experience in Photoshop.

This is for a a school, and if you know schools, they all seem to have tight budgets.

We have a local artist who has offered to do the all the required work for $13 a picture without animation
and $20 a picture with animation. I obviously will not go above that.

I am putting this up here at freelancer to see if we can get it cheaper than that.

++++++++IMPORTANT +++++++++IMPORTANT++++
If you bid on this project, tell me what you want per picture.
$ X per picture and puzzles only
$ X per picture picture,puzzle and animation.

Freelancer requirements:
1. Create (draw) picture of topic - example this months topic is Sea Creatures.. so I need dolphin, turtle, whale , etc etc.
2. Make puzzles with that picture. ( details below)
3. With some pictures, create some animations using png files. ( not flash, actually more like a gif animation but using png files) ( more details below)

PUZZLE Details:
Freelancer will create (draw) picture of desired object or animal and sometimes people.
Freelancer will take that picture and make 2 different styles of puzzles. (square and jigsaw ) and will make with multiple piece settings for the game.
Each picture will have 5 puzzle sizes ( piece sizes) for the player to choose from.
For example.. picture puzzles made for small kids need fewer pieces and puzzles made for larger kids need more.
The smaller kids puzzles also need a shaded pic with the piece outlines ( if they need a hint.)

If the picture requires animation:

ANIMATION details:
I will use the sea creature topic here as an example. ( Other topics will likely have less animation required)
All the creatures need to give the Illusion that they are swimming or walking left and right
that they can turn around natural looking ( no flat images as they turn around)
give the impression that they are caught by a fishing line with hook in mouth. ( wiggle around )
the eyes should blink
mouths need to open and close and smile and look scared.
if turtle
turtle need to be able to hide its head
lobsters and crabs need to be able to open and close its claws

The Sea Creatures needed:
Jelly Fish
Sting Ray:

I need a
small boat and in the boat a fisherman fishing.
and some above/below water backgrounds, waves in water

The boat and fisherman need to be able to turnaround naturally as described above
and it needs to look like its fishing and when it catches something, to pole raises up and the fisherman leaning back and forth pulling in the fish.
