Draw simple, cartoon-like characters and scenes for a whiteboard animation.

Contest Brief

We are planning a whiteboard animation that explains our technical service (solar industry). There will be three different characters that will interact in the animation. I imagine simple, cartoon-like characters (maybe even stickmen-like) that show different facial expressions and gesturing during the animation. The templates that come with standard whiteboard animation tools are too non-emotional, too stiff, so I'd like to have a cartoonist to design our three people in the scenes.

Clarification: It's three different characters
- the boss of an solar engineering company (might be an engineer)
- a land owner who wants to have a large solar park built (might be a farmer or a business man)
- and me.

    Hi there,
    I've added a sample video (samplevideo.mp4) with characters of Yoan M. to make more visible what it is about.

    Hi there,
    I've added the storyboard for the first of seven or eight scenes. This should make it more clear what it's about, and how much time will be needed. This is an average scene, so it should allow you to see what I need as well as to calculate how much time it would take.

    Pls note that the drawings only show the contents (while the spoken words are on the left). If there are better compositions of the elements, feel free to do it. Hey, you're the experts for that.

    As for the compensation: The 100 Euros are a down payment. If it takes longer to finish the seven or eight scenes, the rest will be paid with a regular fee/hour.

      Hi Ely Saud G.,
      for this project it's more about the characters themselves than about blinking. Pls show me how yours would look like.

    Hello, is the contest just for the character concept or for all animation?

      junior0593,
      thank you for this question.
      The contest is to find the right partner that will do the graphics work for the animation (and for more animations that will follow). We're writing the story board right now, and it's the first project of that kind for me. So these 100 EUR are meant to be the down payment. If it takes more time to do the necessary artwork, I'll compensate for that. Does that sound fair to you?

    That's the first time that I've posted a job on Freelancer.com, so I'm still learning. Don't know if it is common to give public feedback here, so pardon me if it is not.

    For now (17 designs have been submitted so far), I like the designs #16 and 17 most. #16 (Juliano K.) shows cartoon-like, detailed characters in different positions and with a lot of personality. #17 (Yoan) is more stickmen-like, but drawn in a rather fresh, cheeky way. #13 (Supri A., lower line) is also ok, but a little bit too well-behaved.

    Hope that helps to better understand what I'm looking for.
