Devlogs & Projects / Re: Kickstarter thread!
« on: July 25, 2019, 08:26:13 am »
Hi everyone my name is John, head of Sword Garden Studios. We have been working in our game, The Tower - The Order of XII, for the past year and now we finally are close to completion. But in order to finish the game we would like to push it with a bit of help from the community. This is why we recently launched the game on Kickstarter where you can also find a demo to try it out.



We currently sit at 16% and we are not asking for much in our initial goal so we are hoping to get the main goal funded before the end of the campaign. You can take a look to the kickstarter in this link:

We have been working with multiple artist found in this very website so please take a look to their twitter accounts if you wish to also work with them.

Thank you for your time and attention. If you wish to ask us anything or know more about us, please follow us on Twitter at @SGS_StudioPR

Hi everyone, my name is John and I speak in name of Sword Garden Studios. We are a small team working on our first game and we need some assist with some puzzles.

We currently need 28 levels or puzzles and after some cosideration we have decided to get someone to work with us.

The design process is quite simple we start with a grid and having in mind the mechanics we draw the path that the player goes thourgh. is  2D game so things are easy in that regard. We will provide more information about the mechanics, how the game works and size of the grid as soon as we have someone ready to accept.

We only require the design on paper (a jpg/png will also do of course), $13/h is our limit but we are ina bit of a hurry so we also offer a plus of $25 if all puzzles are completed in 5h or less.

Here are some examples of what is required:

Job offers / [PAID] Looking for artist scene story and logo (closed)
« on: August 29, 2018, 08:42:51 am »
Hi everyone, my name is John C. Pedraza

I represent a recent formed team, Sword Garden Studios, located in Spain.

We are looking for an artist with the skill and the approach to the things we are looking for.

The first thing is 12 static scenes to tell our story (storyboard will be delivered for each scene and Discord will fill the gaps), the style is quite simple and doesn't require too much detail.



As you can see from this image from the Final Fantasy Bit Em Up Game we are going for detail in the background but we want to  not give detail to characters using shadows to keep the level of detail at minimum. We work with a pretty limited budget but we are willing to go up $30 per scene with a size of 256x144px.



The second thing we are looking for is to make 2 logos (128x128px maximum both of them). 1 for the title of our game and another for our studio. The studio logo we have right now is just a concept and it will change quite a bit. I will give more details in private to  the person that we finally choose to work with us.

We require pixel artist so even if you have experience in static scenes or logo design but you dont have any pixel art, please thank you for your interest but we will not be taking you into account when deciding with who are we going to work.

We ask for portfolios to be send at: swordgardenstudios@gmail.com

Job offers / Re: [PAID] Looking for Artist for Pixel art improvement/remake
« on: February 12, 2018, 03:47:16 pm »
I'd like to apply! I don't have a proper portfolio, but I have a PixelJoint gallery. Since there's nothing in there resembling this sort of RPG, I decided to do a partial remake of your swamp tiles as a test:

I think it ended up a bit more organic than gen 3 Pokemon, but if this style works for you, I'd love to continue.
This took about an hour. If I'm allowed to copy+paste and recolour parts of it, then this should take about 5-6 hours total. If it all has to be unique, then about 9 hours. These estimates might be skewed upwards a bit, as I think the cliffs and forests are probably the hardest tiles to do, and the rest might be easier and faster.
i sent you a PM.

I have a couple of questions about this job:
1. The base tileset has a lot of repeat and mirrored tiles. Are you looking for these to remain repeat or mirrored, or will your artist need to turn them into unique tiles? This impacts the time the job would take.
2. What sort of style and feel are you looking for? "Better" is very vague. Are you looking for something that retains this general look but gets rid of the banding? Do you want something more like DW? More realistic? Cartoonier? Happier? More sombre? There are a lot of directions an artist could take this, and if you're clear about what you want from the start, that can save the artist a lot of rework (and therefore save you money).

Hi, to your question of "better" I change the project to explain it with our vision of what we would like. To you first question, we used repetion because we don't know pixel art but we would like unique versions.

Note: This position is already taken, please don't send anymore applications. Thank you and good luck to everyone.

Hi everyone, my name is John C. Pedraza

I represent a recent formed team, Sword Garden Studios, located in Spain that is looking to create our first game, a rpg strongly inspired by the Dragon Warriors of the NES. The project code is simply known as DW-Project for now.


Task description and profile

We currently have a base for the tiles we are going to use to create the worldmap and what we are looking for is an artist that can work over that base and make it look better within the limitations, color palette and tile size(16x16px). Here is the image of that tileset:


The tiles have been made within Aseprite so we can give png or the original project format.


Here is our reference for the improve version:

We want something close to the pokemon right in the middle of the image.




Payment

In regards of payment, we are willing to pay 15$/h or 13/h (our curency). The payment will be done through paypal once the project is finished and delivered. The setup for the paypal request will be done within paypal with the option "pay for product/service", all we need is the email of the paypal account that we are sending the money.


Contact

Please send your portfolio and an estimate in hours that could take you complete this task.

For more question please you can talk to me by pm or at this email: swordgardenstudios@gmail.com


We are also offering a 200/month position for pixel artist to work not only in our current project but in our prototypes for other projects and future projects in general, of course this amount could increase depending of our budget for each project. Also paid through paypal
