The art of Thornwolf
Illustrator wanted
I have a nuts and bolts catalog to do and the illustrator I had originally hired to do realistic vectorized images for the project had to cancel.

His original quote was $300 per image for a possible total of 18 images give or take one or two. The project is due on the 26th of January, so this is a crunch.

Style preferred: Vectors preferred, Realistic, with forced perspective, Grayscale
What to expect: compositions of nuts and bolts and like items artfully piled against each other (3 or 4 items per one illustration)

Kinda like this but with a "plane" to set them on

I'd do them myself but I have to design said catalog and I can't do two things at once.

If anyone's interested or knows of any resources I might be able to find an illustrator who meets my needs for around that price range.

Feel free to forward to whomever. Thanks!

Was that done from supplied photos of the individual nuts/bolts, etc? If you can give me an idea of exactly what would be supplied to the artist, it'd be helpful.

Reference photos, taken by me, thumbnails from me for compositions (which can be discussed with illustrator for maximum "interest"...I'm bad with perspective but I want these boring images to look..interesting). That embedded photo was just a sample to show that I'm looking for objects interacting with each other in a 3D light, overlapping, as opposed to flat technical drawings. It is not from my illustrator I just nabbed it off the web just to give a rough example.

I could do it if you like! :) I just finished with Disney for the year and won't start with them again until late January.

Ooh didn't know you were working for Disney, how cool!!

Do you know vectors?

Thanks! :) I've been working with them since September or so, only freelance since I'm in Sweden and all, and I'll only do it until May or so this year. Then I go out on my internship and have to stop working outside. *chuckles*

I do know it, I had classes in illustrator. :) Personally? It's a bit too stale for my painterly taste, but I do know it!

Which means, I would still like to work in illustrator. ;) Sounds like I wouldn't like the job, but I would! :P

Ah okay! I get it. I'm still considering and shopping around, but I hope to have a decision by the end of the weekend. I'll post on my journal for an update. May I keep you in mind for future projects if need be depending on your availability?

Sure! Just drop me an e-mail and see if I'm available. :)

If you're interested in this sort of work in the future, contact Mbala - he does uber graphic design/vectory stuff. He has his masters in mathematics/computer graphics and did his PhD work in non-photorealistic rendering. :)

Or if you ever need spot illustration/organic stuff I love that sort of design, but I dont do complex vectoring. ^.^

Organic stuff, I gotcha ;D When it came to having to find a technical illustrator to draw nuts and bolts? I'm up a creek without a paddle. But yeah does he have samples of his stuff for future projects?

can make hires raster raytrace images. But not vectors. High enough res, you can scale to whatever you like easily.

I need some creative work done to it though, more than just tracing, forced perspective is hard to photograph without the right lenses so I'd need a human to do that part, and I'm not it XD Thanks for the suggestion!

Hello! I replied to the illustrator community post.
I would love to help out!
thornwolf From: thornwolf Date: December 28th, 2008 05:48 pm (UTC) (Link)
I emailed you back :)

Whoa that's big money. I'd be really tempted to do this myself in 3D with a render filter to apply an illustrative style then vectorize the rasters.
