Monster League Baseball Creatures

Hi folks. I'm releasing a comedy sketch album later this year and want to have an accompanying video for one of the tracks, called "Monster League Baseball." Considering that the track is about 10 minutes long, I can't afford to have this be animated, but I thought it would be a fun homage to have it be in the style of the Ken Burns' documentary series, Baseball. Burns uses old photographs and pans slowly across them while the narrative is being told. I think that would work well for this, and I've gone through the script and determined what I need, which amounts to about 25 illustrations and about 4-5 larger backgrounds (showing different angles of the baseball stadium, etc.). I'll re-use the stadium backgrounds behind the other illustrations, so most of those 25 illustrations will not need backgrounds, just the characters and maybe a side prop here and there.

I've attached a picture of Dracula at bat, which someone did as a reference image for the CD liner notes. I don't need the images you do to match that particular style... whatever your own style is might be great for this... but keep in mind that it is a kids/family audience, so something more cartoonish and silly will probably work best.

I have a pretty strict timeline, as the album is releasing in early November and I want the video to debut in late October during the World Series, so really, it's two months and preferably sooner than that, as I'll need time to edit everything together (though I'll do what I can as you work through the illustrations). But please don't bid on this if you can't get it all done by mid-October.

My budget for this is fixed at $1,250, so for about 30 illustrations total that ends up being about $42 per illustration. Some illustrations will be simpler than others... the stadium backgrounds will probably be the most involved as I'll need a big wide shot of different stadium angles to use for different things, and the more details in there (audience, vendors, banners, etc.), the better. There's a chance I may need a few other incidental images... If so, I can offer $15-25 each for those, depending on the complexity. If you could do this project for *less* than $1,250, then please bid so, but I am happy to pay that full amount and will ultimately choose based on the best style for the project and not whether you underbid the price.

This won't make a lot of sense without hearing the context of the audio track, but for what it's worth, here's the list of the images I'll need. It should give you an idea of the fun variety of characters and situations you'll be working on.

1. Harry and Mel (announcers) in booth

2. Frankenstein at bat

3. Mummy on mound

4. King Kong catching ball, holding lady

5. Darth Vader at bat with light saber

6. Shark at bat

7. Shark eating hot dog vendor

8. Bob interviews Dracula

9. Two-headed dragon on mound

10. Zombie shambling to first base

11. Bigfoot at bat

12. Loch Ness Monster looking out of dugout

13. Captain Hook with baseball stuck on hook

14. Werewolves howling in bleachers

15. Dracula at bat

16. UFOs circling stadium

17. Aliens on field with bullhorn

18. Mr. Hyde giving trophy to aliens

19. Bob interviews alien

20. Stadium video screen/scoreboard

21. Baseball card template

22. Catcher/umpire

23. Audience cheering

24. Audience booing

25-30. Stadium backgrounds (wide, showing fences, showing home plate, showing mound, etc.)

There may be some duplication/redundancy in that list... For example, where it says "Bob interviews Dracula" and "Bob interviews alien," we can use the same image of Bob holding a microphone, and just switch out Dracula and the alien. And "aliens on field with bullhorn" and "Mr. Hyde gives trophy to aliens" can probably be the same shot with Mr. Hyde added in. Also, I may not need the baseball card template, as there are things like that online, although ideally the style would match the other illustrations in the video.

Any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

Please note that this is a project for CARTOON ILLUSTRATIONS, and not for animation or logos and such. If you cannot show me something in your portfolio that is comparable to the attached picture, or in the style of what I'm looking for, then please do not bid. Also, if you are able to do a quick sketch of one of the pictures on my list (or your version of Dracula at bat) as a demo of what you could do for this project, that would be greatly appreciated.

The Dracula image got cut from my last update for some reason... Anyway, here it is again.
