(Paid) $4 per tile or $25/hr

on: April 09, 2013, 06:30:16 pm


I'm looking for a "go to" artist or two for a project of mine. There is no set schedule and I'm fairly reasonable when it comes to deadlines.

I generally work as follows: a 'sample' is provided of the task by the artist, such as a single frame, or a mockup.  When we're content with the design of the piece, the artist is free to complete it, and after they've sent a .jpg as proof, payment will be sent. After a relationship has developed, I'll usually send straight after the sample.

The price for the task is agreed on beforehand. I'm a negotiable guy and will try to provide the best that I can within my self-funded indie budget.

In need of a range of assets - versatile artists are more than welcome:

- sprites
- tilesets
- character clothing
- interface work
- possibly digital art


If interested, write an e-mail to doohl-savien@outlook.com with samples provided. Alternatively, feel free to PM me. You can find the general pricing of assets below, but of course, this is always up for discussion. =)


---

Usually, the artist will decide frame count and sizing to what they think will be best - however, we'll settle on the general workload / assets beforehand and come to a price we both believe is reasonable.

Images, at the end of the post, are of the project and the art style that will need to be matched.

Please provide a general quote for the commissions you're interested in along with the content you'll be drawing for said tasks. =)

All related assets to the requested commissions will be sent before the piece is began.

Tiles

Village Tilesets

- Desert

There are no tiles drawn for this besides the actual desert tileset (which could probably do with some expansion).

Something similar to this might work: http://oi40.tinypic.com/5aqh79.jpg

- pathway with edges $10
- palm tree $15
- customizable buildings (similar to the screenshot provided). should be able to use the tileset for walls. $50
- two banners (one small and one large) $10
- marketplace $50
- 32x32 objects $10
- stairs $5


- Snow

An igloo and a house have been drawn, along with the base snow tiles as well as a variety of snow covered trees. The igloo will most likely be placed outside of the actual village, so there's not much to work with right now.

- pathway with edges $10
- variety of buildings $100
- two banners (one small and one large) $10
- stairs $5
- variety of 32x32 objects (snowmen, f.ex) $25

"Dark" $150

A not-so-cherry place with a spooky theme to it. It looks like a slum and it's full of equally slummy NPCs.

- customizable buildings + some standalone ones $150
- dark grass (using the existing tiles; recolor with minor tweaks) $5
- dark wall (recolor / tweaks) $10
- pathway w/ edges $10
- stairs $5


Sprites

All should have a fantasy twist about them - whether it's their size, colouring, or general design.

Each sprite will require a movement animation (north, east, south - 4 frames), an attack animation (3 frames), and a short death loop.

Not too sure on pricing. Guestimates.

- bat $25
- snake $25
- fox $50
- skeleton $60


Effects

Will send the related effect art for these attacks.

- Circular blue energy shield. (32x32)
$5
- A shockwave of blue energy in a single direction.
$10
- Short loop effect of a golden energy ring that constricts around the target (32x32).
$10
- Golden meteor shaped 'energy blast'. ~48x48
$15


- A 'vine whip' attack. http://t0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcTL6Ggk8fYT3u1UCHe9emNMBPurH2QG7vk5QLSwPWFZJ9Yu7HBn
$15
- Area of effect: thorns/vines that cover a 5x5 tiled area. Can recycle tiles if possible. Should be animated.
$15
- A seed that sprouts into into vines which ensnare the target.
$20
- Wooden 'spear' projectile.
$5
- Wooden pillar that sprouts up from the ground.
$20

- A 3x3 purple mist of 'poison'. Short loop. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JKq_QepFgXY
$15
- A smaller poison cloud loop.
$10

- A slick of lava, similar to the firewave projectile in size. $20
- A 'magma punch' for the character's attack animation. $10
- 32x32 lava sludges that fade away. $15


Character Gear

Character Sprite. A lot of the frames are recycled: http://oi47.tinypic.com/2sbq2co.jpg

A general quote for a full body outfit (head, upper body, lower body) would be appreciated.

Weapons. 32x32, max. of 48x48, 3 unique frames. $6 per weapon design.


Interface

Still finalizing the designs for this but I have about $200 to work with, perhaps.

Should help paint a clearer picture of what needs to be drawn. Excuse any vagueness-- all tasks will be discussed via e-mail or IM beforehand.

Updated the original post with specific pricing on some of the pieces I need drawn. If it looks off, or seems unreasonable, then I am willing to adjust.

(Paid) $4 per tile or $25/hr

Another bump. Thanks for all of the applications so far. I've found someone to take care of the smaller sprites and another person is tackling character gear.

However, I'm still in need of the following and I'm willing to stretch my budget if the right artist comes along... once again, if anything looks off, the pricing and scale can be negotiated:

villages:
- snow village $300
- desert village $300
- "evil/spooky" village $300

interior for:

- desert home $50
- more generic interior props $100

dungeons:

- volcano $200
- cavern $200
- haunted castle $200

boss sprites:

- lava golem $200
- giant spider or something cool for the tavern $200
- ghastly/demonic spirit $200

spell effects:
- $500


If interested in any of the above, send an e-mail to doohl-savien@outlook.com.
