Looking for one or two experienced 2D animators. These will be contract positions and unfortunately well below "big game company" pay rates. But it's more lucrative, and much more fun, than your average fast food or warehouse store job. You will get to work with our outstanding art director, Terry Robinson, and our other talented character artists. Here is Terry's job description:

The main thing we need is a 2D animator who can animate existing concept sketches. 3D experience is good but the look we are going for is traditional 2D similar to Disney's more realistic style. The ability to draw great monster and human concept sketches is a big plus, although we have most of our concepts done. What we really need is someone who can refine those and animate them in 2D primarily walking animation in our unique low-camera isometric view and combat animation.
We need samples of their work that can be shown through animated gifs or a demo reel.
If you are interested and well-qualified, please send an email with your resume (CV) and a link to your animation samples to "jobs (at) hero-u (dot) net". Lori and I will scan them and forward the best candidates to Terry for evaluation.

Ripped Sprites: No
Ripped Animation: No
Ripped Music: Yes (If you want to.)

Awarded to the Winner:
- Choice of how the next competition is setup on MAY 1st

So get started everyone, you only have 4 months!!!

General Discussion / Hey everyone! I'm new... but not really.

Hey everyone! Glad to see some familiar handles. I use to frequent the old Pixelation forum way back. I kind of lost touch after "Dice" started a similar spinoff. So in the meantime I put my brain to some use and figured out how to setup my own server and host my own site: 2D Gamers: The Serious Side of 2D Game Design. I've even setup my own phpBB forum, (which isn't as nice as this one, but it works for me.)

If you decide to visit, let me know what you think. Thanks!
