Contest Brief

I need someone who can draw and animate (gif) 2D characters. The characters need to be drawn modular. So I can replace helmet A by helmet B of a character. I need the anmiations: Idle and Attack. The perspective should be like this but the characters should look from left to right side:
https://www.reddit.com/r/SummonersGreed/comments/eikzfs/finally_got_the_100k_evolve_gems_for_teddy/

Attached you can find 3 characters with 4 armor parts (helmet, armor, pants, shoes) and 1 weapon (gun, staff, axe). I need you to draw and animate one of the characters in a resolution of at least 400x400. As I wrote, Every part needs to be one single GIF so I can replace armor parts or weapons. We will draw several weapons and armor sets for each character.

I need you to draw as similar as possible to the current characters but with a new art style. They are from 90s, I need you to draw it in 2021 style.

The art style should look like "battle legion":

On the screenshot attached there are different races.

Important: for this contest, I need you to send me 6 gif files: draw any of the 3 character's armor parts (4 GIF), the weapon (1 GIF) and the character itself (1 GIF). If I overlap all the 6 GIFs, then I should see the whole character. It's a guaranteed price of $50 here but for the whole project I'll pay $1500 (30 armor sets, 30 weapons, 3 chars, 30 monsters - all GIF animated and modular - monsters not modular).

EDIT: uploaded a high resolution version of human char and also the info: You won't draw anything from your imagination, there will be a template (for 30 armor sets, 30 weapons, 3 chars and 30 monsters) which should be matched as good as possible.

EDIT2: I have uploaded a png file which shows the perspective to draw (as I wrote above they need to look horizontally (to right).

    Please, hear me out, Contest Holder. I would really like an explanation. I apperciate the fact that you gave me extra time to work on my entry and I spent the whole weekend working on it. So I would at least like to know what you did not like about the animation I did. I also understand that you may have your reasons for selecting the winner you chose, but I would also really appreciate some feedback on the link to the animation I sent, so that I would be able to do better next time and not waste my efforts. I hope you understand. Thank you.

      I modified it because you wanted him in 2021 artstyle. But I will make changes to make him look more like the reference image you provided

      Looks not bad but the animation looks pixely on the edges of the char (inner sides of the legs e.g.). Do you know why?

      It could be because of the size and GIFs are sometimes notorious in terms of quality. I was also working on the attack animation but left it incomplete since this style does not match your requirements. You can add the character in the game engine you are using and test it there and tweaks can be made later if needed. Here is the action animation, but incomplete https://drive.google.com/file/d/1SN6mpru0uzo-exJcCOIzhtTZzwMIicze/view?usp=sharing

    I want to work on this project, but I am confused with the instructions. The style you asked for was like the game Battle Legion but the entry #3 is not even close to what you are asking for. The battle legion characters are designed with shading and brush strokes and this one is just plane vector which tbh does still look like a 2d character from 90s.

      Hi Santosh,
      You are absoluteley right. I give feedback to everything but the ultimate aim is to get the new art style from 2021

    Hey CH,

    This seems like a very interesting project! I'd be happy to give it a shot.
    Are these three characters major characters in your game, or are they more of a common unit? Also, do you have a certain framerate in mind or are we free to work on that on our own?

    Thanks!

      Thank you for your comment. They are major. About the frame rate: it should be more or less fluent but the performance on mobile devices is also important, so it shouldn't have too much fps. We would need to test with the very first animation and then use that. I am currently testing and will know more in a few days. Maybe I can even tell it very accurate very soon.

    Hi, can you attach a high-quality image of sample characters? Also, do we have to design the other 30 monsters, weapons, and armors from our imagination or you have some data on them?

      Hi Milind,
      Thank you for your comment. I have uploaded high quality image of one character. Please let me know if this is good enough. And yes, there will be templates for each armor / weapon / monster. I need you to create the same look like the template (as similar as better but with new art style).
