Category B

Here you can see projects I have worked as a Lead artist. Lead artist means the one who creates the initial artistic
direction for a team of artists to follow, supervising them and also being responsible for the final appearance for the
art as a whole to look consistent and according to the client`s tastes. This process is essential when a large project
needs to be done in very short time, so more than one people is involved.

Hello, Spyros worked for us Y8.com during eight month.
It was a pleasure to work with him, his style and creativity were pushing up our project!
Here are some samples of the kind of work Spyros did for us

Hi All,

Spyros worked with me on a still unannounced project after he submitted his resumé to this job request https://pixelation.org/index.php?topic=20005.msg172747 (https://pixelation.org/index.php?topic=20005.msg172747). He did some great animations on pixelart made by wolfenoctis.  He is really skilled at creating unique and interesting animations and was a pleasure to work with.

I hired Spyros through my add here: http://pixeljoint.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=25421

Spyros did good work for me. He was very good at listening to feedback, good at giving advice, and is a nice guy.
His art is very solid. I really liked the work he did, and thank him for some free revisions he threw in, when we just couldn't get that one sprite right.
Great stuff.

Spyros created several very nice characters for the game Lethal Running (http://www.lethalrunning.com) with detailed animations for walking, running, dodging, dying, melee fighting and just dropping dead.
We got so far the Hero himself, the trunk faced Rogue, the Evil Clown, the Villain, the Knight, the hump backed Mutant, the cute little Rat and his ugly brother, a big fat disgusting Giant Rat.
A great enrichment for the game :)

Spyros completed several animations for a character in our game, Moiety: Rise of an Archon. The Patreon for that game's development can be found here:

We ended up using the attack animations he completed, which were very well done, and he will revise his work if it is not to your liking. I appreciated his help.

"This individual is a thorough worker and likes to get good quality work done in the fastest time. Sure he may cost a little extra here and there but he is a talented artist. I recommend anyone to hire him who favors nice pixelated art as his art work itself proves he is a stellar artist with many years of experience.
He is very calm in answering questions and will listen to every need a client wants without ever arguing.
Even giving so much as a rough sketch could set him on a track to get your desired product with ease.

I recommend him to anyone seeking a pixel artist, believe me, I REALLY recommend him to anyone who is seeking a pixel artist.

Good job Spyros, keep up the good work!

I've been working with Spyros for over three years now and it's been an absolute pleasure.

The showcase in this thread speaks for itself, but I can vouch his work as
amazing, consistent, and of course, consistently amazing!

His rates are fair and affordable. I'm a habitual commissioner, so I know a good price when I see it.
I have a humble budget, and yet Spyros has provided me commissions of utmost quality and limitless quantity.
He's talented and dependable. Nothing beats a reliable relationship, and we're still going strong!
Spyros has been an invaluable asset, and I make it a point to reserve his sprites for my best games.

Recommendation: High!

Here is a sample from the early days.

Since then, Spyros has made a world of characters and creatures from this style!

It was a little over a year ago when I first stumbled upon Spyros, here on Pixelation, while searching for a pixel artist for my currently ongoing project ( he contacted me through my ad that I had posted here https://pixelation.org/index.php?topic=22779.msg186553#msg186553 ). Since then I have been working, and continue to work, with Spyros on numerous projects for my game.

Together we have worked on sprites, animations, and environmental tiles and he has consistently delivered quality work at affordable rates. He is thorough in his work and can create art that has regularly exceeded my own imagination while having very little initial information to work with. My favorite aspect of working with Spyros is that he is very patient and will continuously strive to improve his work based on my feedback while providing valuable advice to someone who isn't particularly versed in his art.

I can proudly recommend Spyros to anyone who's looking for an artist and I look forward to working with him for the rest of my project.

Spyros contacted me through my post (https://pixelation.org/index.php?action=profile;area=showposts;u=70832). His artwork helped put life into my game. He always responded back quickly to emails and had great ideas. I'm very pleased with the final product.

I'm a solo indie programmer and I wanted an artist to help me with the initial look for my game. I posted a job offer on http://pixeljoint.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=26606 (http://pixeljoint.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=26606) where I interviewed a few potential artists. Spyros stood out from the rest with his impressive portfolio and the quality of our initial exchange of emails. He knew how to ask clear, precise questions to help move the art in the direction I wanted.

I also made a video about the whole experience. (https://youtu.be/LI-ek5w_ABM)

He went on to create absolutely amazing art, quickly and for a very reasonable price even accepting to do a few revisions without any complaint !

I requested a rather extensive request for getting the foundation of all the art together for the project I am working on.  We worked together to get a great look for the game at a reasonable price.

Did a great job with a project of mine a few months back. Made easy adjustments and was very versatile. A lot of sprites have trouble with the style but he was great! Would recommend to anyone!
