Title: Kyle McArthur - Professional Pixel Artist / Animator, Game Designer, Writer
Post by: RollToNotDie on July 12, 2017, 06:29:01 pm
Hello! My name is Kyle McArthur, and I am a professional pixel artist, game designer, and writer seeking paid work. I know this forum is about game art, but I figured I would mention my other skills as well in case you are looking for that triple threat developer to add to your team. If you are indeed someone looking to hire for any of those skill sets, then congratulations, you're in the right place! I'm seeking part time, full time, commission, or contract work (big or small). Sorry, I am not interested in solely rev-share projects at this time.

Some quick facts: I have 5 years experience as a pixel artist / animator, 6 years as a game designer, and 11 years experience as a writer. I've had 5 of my theatrical plays put on stage, I've worked on several of both professional and hobby games, and I absolutely love what I do.

Resume & Portfolio
Rates

My standard rate for short term freelance work is $35/hr USD + any transfer fees if applicable.  This is not set in stone and can vary.  I also offer flat rates, but Iíll need a full breakdown of the work you want done before I can give an estimate.  I can work with most budgets, so in your first message, please let me know your ballpark budget for the project and we can discuss.

Contact

You can contact me through any of the methods below, and I will get back to you ASAP.

Here are some quick art samples, you can see my entire portfolio with the link above.

Hello, I liked very much your pixel art. I have a project for an RPG and I also liked the part of "writer" so you can help me finishing the lore. Would you like to work with me?

These are some WIP tiles, but I really like how they are coming along, so I think they're worth sharing.
