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

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.

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.
