We're looking for the base boy and girl fairy avatar that can be customised with various features and accessories so that each boy or girl who joins has a unique looking fairy friend to accompany them through The Fairy Kingdom.
We'd like a male and female fairy design that is suitable to be built up in layers so that additional hair, wings, nose, eyes, clothes and accessories can be created to increase the possible unique combinations. We'd like to see a representation of the base Male and Female Fairy and a fully formed fairy of both sexes.
The Fairy would be used in a variety of situations within the website, possibly in different poses with very basic animation, such as wings fluttering, hair rippling or eyes blinking. So the design has to be simple enough to not have to create an unmanageable number of components to achieve this. However this exercise is for us to identify the look of our fairies.
We don't want the designs to be sexual, think child friendly and appealing.
We will at a later stage be developing pet animals to be collected, so again the design would have to fit in with the ability to create pets (normal and fantasy) in the same graphical style.
Think elegance, refinement, and beauty, over cartoon like characters, but complexity in the artwork is obviously a compromise considering what we're trying to achieve.
We'd expect to auto generate the combinations of hair, eyes, wings to go with the base torso, and probably have a pallet of colours that could be applied to each type of item, i.e skin, top clothes, bottom clothes, shoes, hair etc. with this in mind any items should not have more than a couple of colours making them up, for example to illustrate shade or depth etc.
