We are looking for a talented graphics artist who can create an animated character which will be used to explain various parts of our website to our visitors and our users. Ideally we would like the character to look like the kiwi bird in New Zealand or similar to the drawing attached but we prefer an animated cartoon rather than an animated person.
The animated character will have movements in its hands and legs and also some lip movement and eye expression which is not required to follow words. The movements it will make are quite simple in that it can shake hands and legs in 2-3 steps and move its lips. All of these actions will be driven from a background XML file and an audio file which will be inside the flash application.
If I have not explained what is required clearly enough, please ask me for more details. Please provide some examples of your previous work and estimated time frame to have the work completed. Preference will be given to a freelancer who is able to deliver the work in the time promised. There will be more work for the successful freelancer, dependent upon the execution of this project.
