[hiring] Realistic Graphic novel character concepts

I'm the writer / creator of Glider Ink ( https://glider.ink/ ), the first open source graphic novel about modern hackerspaces and real hackers.
I'm looking for someone to illustrate three characters from a description for $50 each, all to be put under Creative Commons BY-SA license.
More about the project: https://glider.ink/the-project/
Characters and sample art I've got so far: https://glider.ink/characters
Project wiki: https://wiki.glider.ink/
Overall project moodboard: https://pl.pinterest.com/alxd7156/glider-ink-moodboard/
Art style moodboard: https://pl.pinterest.com/alxd7156/glider-ink-comic-inspirations/
Please submit your portfolio and the amount of work you're willing to do for $50: can it be a sketch, lineart, flat color, something more? I will need concepts of Amanda, Cynic and Robert. If we really like each other there is a possibility of illustrating the whole comic :)
I can pay with PayPal, Bitcoin and anything that's not an international money transfer. I suggest payment after the initial (approved) sketch so I know that you've read and understood the description.
