Unpaid Work / [Request? Unpaid] Editing? Brightening Up?
« on: April 20, 2019, 10:19:20 pm »
Here's what I'm currently working on:


It looks, well, just a little dull. Maybe if someone could do some color edits, swaps, or something? Just to make it pop a little?

That'd be great if you could!

Complete tileset:

I think this is how you post requests?

Unpaid Work / Blocks and Stuff
« on: February 19, 2018, 04:58:25 am »
I'm working on a small Doctor Mario style puzzle game. I'm not happy with the current cc0 stuff that's out there and would like request something a bit less generic. The game also needs some walls and some ui stuff. Like borders and panels. A font would be nice too but not required. I am also looking for:

-Coffee cups of various sizes, platformer/profile style
-An 80s shmup style title with the words 'Locker Raid'
-Cookies, pretzels, trays, serving boats, other paper stuff to go with the coffee cup
-A coffee dispenser and serving window to go with the coffee cups

If you have the time to do any of these that would be appreciated. 16x16 would be preferable.

I am fully aware these are requests and may or may not be looked at. Thanks for looking if you do.

General Discussion / What to offer?
« on: August 24, 2017, 10:23:18 am »
So. I'm looking for pixel art to make a game with. I recently fell into a job and had some spare cash lying around. So I shopped for pixel art assets and bought a couple. THEN I did a double think. This tile set only cost this much for this one time buy? Hey! If I'm making money now I could do x per month and let's crunch some numbers!

So, the problem was was finding the numbers to begin with. I looked at several portfolios and only a few provided numbers. They were mostly within the same range of each other. And I did some math, and, a decent small game budget would be about $100? Really? So I got all hyped and was about to make a job offer here.

BUT then I began to think, well, is that FAIR, though?

If my budget is only $100 a month and I'm getting nice assets out of it, is that fair to the artist? They're getting paid, but is it average pay? Fair pay?

I mean, one of my games grid size is 12x12. While the pixel art set I'm using is fairly decent, it's, plain generic sci-fi. What if I want another building? A new tower? Something else? Okay, let's do math, a 12x12ish tower in today's market is, lemme guess, 15, 17ish? Granted, that's only five or so buildings under $100, but, oh, my game only needs 5 or so. Oh. Whole game done then for under $100 a month? Er? Why do kickstarters want $35000 per pixel game project then? (I know, I know.)

So, I never posted the job offer cause I think my offer is too low and wouldn't be taken seriously. Then another problem. Who do I hire? I thought, maybe I could do a remake this game contest for $100, pay the artist for rights, then hire them to do more art?

I dunno.

What do you guys want to see in a job offer?
What would you have thought about the contest idea?

Any thoughts?

General Discussion / Who to hire for a quick mockup?
« on: June 02, 2013, 02:12:27 pm »
Hey there!

I have a small budget for games related projects and I've been bit by the kickstarter bug. It's just a small collection of robot sketches, but one of my stretch goal ideas is a simple shooter game with them all. You all know I'm terrible at pixel art but if I get enough funds I'd be able to hire one of you. But that's all speculation right now. What I'm after is a mockup of what the game could look like. Granted I have a small budget. But I would like to know if one of you would do one, how long would it take you and how much would one set me back by?

2D & 3D / Mini-Comic (Traditional art: constructive criticism appreciated)
« on: December 04, 2012, 01:36:23 am »
Hey guys!

I did my first mini-comic this year. I've shown it to a few friends and family and have put it on the internet. While I've already gotten some feed back on an issue, I didn't get much on the comic itself. You guys are by far, the most brutally honest critics I know. So, I was wondering what your guy's take on my comic would be. Here's a couple links:

Title:

Sample beginning panels:

Sample middle panels:

2 panels before the end:


The full comic can be viewed here:

So um. What could be improved here?

Thanks in advanced!

EDIT: I have included the link to the full comic through the deviantArt link. The whole comic is 16 pages. Hopefully that explains some story gaps.

General Discussion / Open game art
« on: September 15, 2011, 06:47:02 am »
I found opengameart.org a while back, I thought it was pretty cool. Then I realized that it would be difficult to build an entire game out of some of the sprites. So, I was wondering. Would pixelation artists be interested in doing an opengameart thread? It would at least cut down on some of the requests I think. Just curious.

General Discussion / Need help identifying finding more about a cartoon
« on: August 31, 2011, 08:02:06 pm »
Hey! I need help from some animation gurus! First of all let me post this:

http://twitpic.com/6e4ays

Now, the small square girl at the bottom. Does anyone know what film/animation/cartoon she's from? I had some ideas on how to go about searching but I didn't find anything. Also, the book says 'stylized stiffness' as a style. But I didn't find much on google about that either. Any clues?

Thanks in advance!

General Discussion / Scanner owners I need advice!
« on: July 10, 2011, 05:30:27 am »
Hey there!

So I'm doing some shopping and finally decided to try and look for a scanner to buy. So I've settled on a Hand-Held scanner as the best option for me. I was wanting to know from you guys, is what do you use and what has worked out best for you. I thought it'd be best to ask the experts so what do you guys reccommend?

Thanks in advance!

General Discussion / I want to see your paper stuff
« on: June 09, 2011, 07:47:04 pm »
So, recently, I've been contacted by an artist or two wanting to work with me on a game. The first guy had to drop me because of other projects, but I was okay with that. The second contacted me through newgrounds. Now, naturally I wanted to see a portfolio or something so I looked through his submissions. They weren't bad really. But I wanted to check on something. I asked to see if he could send me something from his sketches, real life stuff. At first he didn't know what I was talking about, but after I made it clear, he said he'd try even though I was feeling that they didn't look good. (even though I assured him that it would look better then mine) That was a week ago. I sent him a pm just now but I don't think I'll get an answer back.

So, my question here, is, why? If I have the good fortune of being contacted by another artist wanting to work with me, I would very much like the best argument that I can make for it without sounding like a total d-*. The reasoning I'm currently going with is one that I've been told before: I want to see if you have the fundamentals down. Is that being too rude or something? What else should I ask look for?  Does it matter if it's paid/unpaid? Shouldn't right?

Edit: Oh hey, I got a pm back!

General Discussion / Kill the Unpaid Jobs Board
« on: February 08, 2011, 04:19:15 am »
Honestly, why is there one even on the site? No one is going to work for free from here. I would say 99.9 percent of the threads have 0 replies and the ones that do are fairly rare. So, because of the unlikelihood of anyone working for free, I think that it should be removed. Unless of course it's a clever way of not cluttering up the paid jobs thread. And a simple fix would be to delete unpaid jobs outright from the thread. Since no one is going to work for free. That's just my reasoning. What do you think?
