Hello there.  :)

My name is David, I am 19, and have been developing small games for almost 7 years now, and I'm looking to make a sale worthy title now.

I am looking for an artist or two for a multi-player platform game I am making at the moment. I will not go too much into the game-play here, but I will say that the engine is already in development in C# (XNA Framework), and has functional connectivity at the moment and syncing players movement. It is not incredibly far along, but I would like to get this out of the way before I go too far, and once the game is more impressive, I hope to create a kick-starter for it, but for now I will dedicate my own money towards it! I am somewhat of a perfectionist so bare with me.

Each character will have these animations: Standing, Walking Forward/Backwards, Jumping, Double Jump, Falling, 2 Basic Attacks, 1 Air Attack, 3 Abilities, and a Taunt, for a total of 14 Animations. Some, like Falling, Double Jump, etc. will be very easy, while some others like the abilities may or may not be difficult depending on the character. Some characters will require 3-4 less animations because they will have an 360 degree angle arm if they have a gun or ranged weapon of the sort. Only 4 (original) characters have been planned and designed so far.

Here are some examples of various art styles I am looking for (for Characters/Mapping):

I will give you the option to either be payed a set value (closing in around $60-100 per character + detail value, $10 payments per a few special effects, and over $100 for an in-game map) or to take a small upfront value in addition to a permanent cut of the game's final income. You are helping me so I will give you as much flexibility as I can! I will of course prefer taking a cut of the final income because it shows you are dedicated, but is not by any means necessary.

I myself will take care of the engine, as well as menu graphics. My only requirements are:
1. The job gets done at a relatively fast and consistent rate. (I would appreciate if you work extra hard at first so I can implement the core animations etc.)
2. I would prefer if you accepted PayPal, but I guess I could like, mail it to you or something. I don't know how else!  ::)
3. Please be contactable on SKYPE often. I have tried using other IM systems but they do not go over well.
4. Be friendly! Also please be ready to work with somebody who way ask you your opinion a lot on the game or ask for tweaks here and there. Of course, I would much prefer to hire somebody friendly who I can be friends with rather than simply somebody who I buy graphics from.
5. Please put as much effort and detail into your work as possible, as I will pay a multiplicative value based on quality as an addition to a base value.

I do not mind if you are younger than I am of course, but please do not be immature!

If you are available, please either post here, or PM me. I have never used this site before so I may not see your PM at first!

I do not want to turn anybody down, but I may have to. I apologize sincerely if I do, please do not take this as a sign that your work is not good enough, I am looking for a particular style!

Anyhow, thank you friends!

For that price most people will do ONE animation, not ALL.

Sorry, when I said animations like that I simply meant the style I would hope to be similar to any of those 4, not particularly the quality.
As for the price, I see that I was about 10 times off  :P, so I should have prepared in advance for that.  I will be willing to pay that amount per character if some of the necessary animations for the first 2/3 characters are done at a lower price so I can get a kickstarter going. If not it is alright. Thank you for the responses everybody.

If you are interested in my help I'd at least like to discuss a bit more about how this game is going to work as well as rates.
