**More compensation offered for creation of further illustrations if we can work together moving forward**
I am looking for the design of a saucy, cute, female character, Little Miss Bitch. Her image will accompany different witty and snarky quotes (10 in total to start) that will be imprinted onto canvas bags, t-shirts and other merchandise.
I'd like her to be along the style of the images attached. I had placed an ad for an illustrator who started with two designs and then completely disappeared. (I would like to work with someone and would, potentially going forward, offer more compensation for additional drawings, but I want to be sure my next artist won't disappear first.)
What I like from the initial drawings:
She is cute, relatable, appeals to young and old, cartoony but a little bit sexy.
I want as close to this image as I'm able without infringing on the original artist's work. I don't want her too stylized, looking like a run-of-the-mill graphic design you'd find online. I like how this image is obviously hand-made and rough. It appeals to the eye because it's unique, different from high-glossy pics all over the internet.
What I don't like:
She is frowning in these images when she should be smirking or smiling more often. She is more of a wink-and-a-smile kiind of girl, a little bit naughty.
Little Miss Bitch, in these images, is desgined around the quotes (edited out for the time being) and I prefer the words to be worked into the image, ultimately.
