Our organisation is a startup mobile apps games design company. We are looking to create our first game. This is a project which will build the image of our company with the style of the first character of the first game. Our target audience is anyone that can hold a phone :)
What's your vision?
Our first mobile phone app game character is going to be a puffin. A puffin is a sea bird. The character draw here is to be used in the game. Here's a good picture of a puffin but google has plenty more. http://www.avianphotos.org/Chris-Fagyal-Galleries/Birds/Seabirds/i-hg6HQnz/1/L/AtlanticPuffin1-L.jpg We're open to style ideas but we had the concept of a 'new age retro look' which some how incorporated a strong aspect of retro 80's, 90's video game graphics with some kind of new 21st century styling, so rather than a bunch of blocks it really kicked ass visually :). In terms of the puffin style I'd like him to encapsulate the look of a real puffin too. They're quite plump and clumsy and cute and I'd like this to come across a little bit. This project will open the door for a lot more artwork on the rest of the game. The game is a birds eye view so we will need the following: 1) Looking from above at puffin in fight 2) Side on view of puffin. 3) In flight with head turned to side **** More important than the views is the style. If you nail the style then I'll let you know and then you can do the views. **** if it takes the whole project length to get the style/look right then so be it.
Have a look at some of these links. I have to be honest, I really struggled to find anything which might be exactly what i'm looking for but this is an example of something which was essentially a really very simple graphic/sprite but with an awesome look to it. The finishing is what makes it I think. http://cdn.akamai.steamstatic.com/steam/apps/219190/header.jpg?t=1412927315 http://vigilantgamers.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/Ultratron-03.jpg http://www.puppygames.net/images/ultratron/UT-orbiters-2.jpg

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their character or mascot.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
phillash79 collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
