So this may be another shout out of me looking for someone to commission.
I am looking to add an illustration to a future business card that I'd like to create. I'm not looking for someone to create a business card for me, just the illustration.
So with that out of the way, here's a description of what I'm looking for.
A sea otter floating on her back holding a dSLR camera. The camera doesn't need to have a brand name, just a pretty basic looking camera, with a camera strap that is around the otter's neck.
The sea otter doesn't have any super distinguishing characteristics (since it's not an OC). But as for fur color, I'd like it to be about middle aged/standard fur color otter color, so not chocolaty brown like a juvenile
and not super silver like a very old otter
, instead more like the following
. Basically, a dark brown body with a lighter brown head/chest area.
Also it has to be a SEA otter. In my experience, not a lot of people know the difference between a river otter and a sea otter. River otters are long and sleek, longer tail, paws are all about the same size, usually swim belly down, and well, live mostly in rivers or estuaries. Sea otters meanwhile are pretty bulky compared to other otters, have a shorter tail, hind paws are more like flippers, and are usually seen floating on their back.
I think I'd prefer digital illustration, but I'll still give a look at any traditional artists too!
As for pricing, I really don't know how much something like this would cost. I'm really new when it comes to the commissioning world, and I don't want to devalue the artist's work just as much as I don't want to be ripped off by paying too much because I have no idea how to price things. So I will place my trust in the artist that their pricing reflects what they believe their art is worth.
My price range is 0-$50.
I think that about covers everything.
So if you are an artist that has an opening in their commission slots and this sounds like something you'd like to take on, leave some links to your info in the comments below.
Or if you know any artists, likewise, leave their info/links to their profile in the comments!
