I need a series of cartoon characters created for a website I'm building. In the site members will be promoted to different levels which will have a corresponding cartoon character associated with it. Here are the 7 characters I'll need:
1. Dog Catcher
2. City Hall Intern
3. City Clerk
4. District Court Judge
5. City Council Member
6. Deputy Mayor
I'll actually need a male and female character created for each level. I'd like it to have the style look similar to the Farmville characters (see attached) but am open to other suggestions too. I'd like the members on my site to be able to choose from several different clothing themes for their character as well (high class, cowboy, nerd). The characters can be the same for all three clothing styles with just different attire. The final project will include 42 different characters (2 genders of 7 levels with 3 clothing styles each). I'd suggest starting with the male, high class attire, mayor character to see if you are on the right track in terms of the style I'm looking for in your design. For this one I'm envisioning an older man, wearing a top hat and monocle and dressed in a suit.
FYI: I'm on a fairly tight budget for this project. I'll consider bids under $400, but would prefer something under $300. Ideally I'd like to have the 7 characters, with 2 genders and 3 sets of of attire (42). If you'd rather bid for 2 sets of attire (28 characters) or 1 set of attire (14 characters) I'll consider those bids as well. At a bare minimum I need the 7 characters with 2 genders in the "high class" attire.
*****Update 1/7/13: Thank you all for your bids. At this point I've decided to hold off on this project. This is a project I still want to get done at some point, but I've realized that what I'm really wanting is going to be much more involved than what I originally posted. After some helpful comments I see that what I'd like will require many more characters created which will entail a significantly bigger budget and time committment. So, for now I'm going to end this project, but please keep your eyes out for it to be reposted later on a bigger scale at some point in the future.
