Need Pixel artist for project video game !

on: November 21, 2016, 09:02:34 pm
Hi everyone,

I am in need of a new pixel artist who can draw characters (humanoids and monsters), in 4 ways (facing up, down, left and right), animated in 3 frames. It is for my video game project ďA Lost DreamerĒ.

Here are a cuple of characters already created :

Mapping and video (WIP) :

A lost dreamer is a project conceived under rpgmaker, a software dedicated to developing independant video games. This project is a French one which will be translated in English eventually.

I am working on this project with a little team comprised of

* A graphic designer

* A composer

* And myself who does pretty much everything else.

This project will never be sold and will be available freely to all ,on PC, via project-hosting platforms. We are all amateurs ( except my composer which is like a god to us) and everyone of us has some other main job. Weíre all working on this project on our free time. This project is akin to those vintage rpgs on consoles like PS1 and SNES. It is a hybrid of Secret of mana, Grandia and Final Fantasy.

A website is available where you can browse between different screenshots of the game. Itíll give you a little taste of what there is and whatís to come :

Here are some of the songs from the composer :

Evidently, I donít really have a budget available to pay the artist but as with the old artist I had (which quitted for school reasons), I can shed about 30 euros(Paypal transaction) for 4 characters (movements included). That is the maximum budget I have.

I'm with the above, animated movement sprites for four seperate characters would be four times that unless you want absolute garbage quality. You might want to try saving up some.
PSA: use imgur also go suggest on my quest, cmon
