I'm currently doing an indie game project in my spare time. I'm looking to commission someone for some short term sprite work on a per sprite sheet basis.

A little about the project: Currently code-named "Earth 3002", it is a Zelda 2 - like adventure game. The character goes on a journey to save her family, acquiring tools along the way to help thwart enemies and solve puzzles. It's development has been sporadic, on and off for the past year depending on when I have time. I'm hoping to get a significant chunk more of it done during the holidays. I've already started on doing some of the sprite work, so the art style is kinda set. I'm looking for someone who can match my art style and do walking animations for the below characters:
Sprite characters at their actual resolution


Job and Pay
The above top 3 characters need walking animations (the pink haired character is just for reference). I'm looking for 4-5 frames for their walk, and 1 more frame to complement their idle pose. I will paypal you $20 per character and will also display your name in the credits when the game is finally released.

The characters are pretty low-res, so hopefully it shouldn't take long. The low-resolution presents its own challenge in how to communicate a walk cycle effectively and make it look natural. So if you're confident and interested, email me first at: jacktran122@gmail.com

If our work together goes well, there are other areas that I could use help with (child NPCs, boss, enemy designs), and you will be the first person I contact.

Order is closed currently, as I'm now in talks with a few people. Thanks for looking!

Bump!

Hi everyone. The game has made progress and I'm looking to finish it soon. As such I'm also looking to improve some existing art assets. I am working with some other artists right now, but could use some more help since their bandwidth is full. These are the things I'm looking for:

NPCs
Need more varied NPC sprites. Sprites for kids, young adults, elderly, npcs in different occupations, tailor, blacksmith, etc.

TILESETs
Need to improve a few tilesets as well. Caves, Trees, Bricks, and more.

MAIN CHARACTER
The main character does a lot of things like running, jumping, rolling, hitting, throwing a spear, holding things, etc. I also want to redesign the main character, and want to go back and forth with the artist over the design discussion, so communication is a big must for this one.

So yeah, if you're interested in a few or all of these categories, let me know by sending me an email (jacktran122@gmail.com) along with a link to some of your sprite samples. And then we can get into specifics and payment.

Here is some media from the game so you can decide if you're interested.

I'm going to close applications at 3:00 PST (in one hour), in case some people are still mid-application. I have received some emails and am closely looking through them now. I will let you all know of my decision shortly. Thanks everyone.
