InterAct Story Theatre
What do you do?
We're an educational theatre company based in Maryland. We have a show starting called "Voytto Tech: a scifi fable on bullying." We need a character illustration of three gossipy teenage girls standing together. The characters are students at an imaginary futuristic school called "Voytto Technical Institute" on a planet called Voytto Prime. The girls are wealthy, attractive, and snobbish but not necessarily mean.
How many pages of illustration do you need?
We're looking for one character illustration of three gossipy teenage girls standing in a clump together.
Does your illustration need to be a particular size?
The illustration will be blown up to fullsize (like a cardboard cutout), so it must scale to that size. The three characters should be standing together in a group. It should be scalable to roughly 38" wide by 65" tall (or roughly 97 centimeters wide by 167.6 tall)
What is your industry?
Describe the target audience for your illustration
Target audience is elementary schools (children and adults), grades Kindergarten through 6th grade (so kids roughly ages 5-11).
What 3 things would you like to communicate to your audience through your illustration?
Style and Concept
What lillustration styles do you like?
We've been leaning towards an anime-style illustration. We are inspired by anime colors and styles for our show. We're open to other styles, so if you've got an idea, please show it to us!
What colors do you want to see in your illustration?
We'd like really bright colors, so they are eye catching for the kids.
Hair: The girls can have any color hair except GREEN. Fun colors appreciated!
Skintone: the girls can be any race or ethnicity. If they can be diverse, that's great.
Clothing: The girls' clothing should be futuristic and fashion forward, whatever you think that means for a high school in the future on another planet. They have a loose "uniform": Black/grey/navy blue pleated short skirt, leggings, any color tops/layers. They can be wearing the same style skirt/leggings/shoes with different tops and jackets. As long as the skirt and leggings are black, navy blue, or gray, you can use any colors you want for the rest of their looks.
What colors do you NOT want to see in your illustration?
No dark, gloomy colors.
The jackets on the girls must NOT be lime green or fuschia. Those colors are already being used.
What adjectives should best describe your illustration?
colorful, , easy for kids to see
To describe the three girls: pretty, popular, snobbish, looking down on others, silent.
Where will you use the illustration (print, website, etc.)?
We will use this online, and will blow up a fullsize cutout or banner for the play.
Do you have additional info or links you'd like to share?
In this scifi play about bullying, these girls are the clique that follows the most popular girl in school around. Think movies and shows like "Clueless", "Mean Girls" "Gossip Girls", but set in the future on another planet.
