I have written a children's book and am looking for an artist. I want to use an 8bit pixel art style. The book is set in the jungle and features lots of jungle animals. I work in television (in Australia), and through my work, have direct access to several publishers. IF the book is picked up, you WILL be paid. I have done a layout for all the pages, but I want an artist who will take those ideas and make them their own. If you are interested, please show me your best 8bit giraffe.

Thanks,

Dave

Here is a giraffe watching TV:


I lack the knowledge of a lot of technical terminology, but i hope this is complying with your wishes
The giraffe itself is made up of 8 colours, however the surrounding area contains many more. It is on a 64x64 canvas as well.
If this is against your wishes, i can easily isolate the giraffe and reduce the colour palette.

I look forward to your response.

llamacyst, thanks for the reply and the awesome giraffe. I think I lack more of the terminology than you. What I meant by 8bit was something a lot more simple than your giraffe. Something more akin to the look of Mario on the NES, or something from the c64.

Thanks again for your giraffe, I loved it.
Dave
