Looking for estimated costs *CLOSED*

on: April 20, 2018, 10:59:25 am
** Unfortunately my partner does not want to fund the artwork and we will try to do it ourselves. Thanks so much and apologies it didn't work out this time. I received several messages and everyone's galleries were really impressive. All the best.

Hello everyone,

I currently have no idea what sort of hours/cost would go into this work, so please understand this is not a formal job offer until I understand how much time and money you would anticipate fair for the work so I can discuss it with my partner. As we will be splitting the cost.

If I still have your attention the game we are making needs roughly 60 sprites including animation frames.
I am no expert at pixelart so this is a bit loose. I'm almost certian further work will be added onto the project to fill any gaps I may have missed or overlooked.

We are making a game where the main character is a man on a raft, trying to survive hunger, exhaustion and fear. So essentially a man worn down to his primitive self trying to navigate down river in a rainforest to survive.
This is my bad interpretation of what he will look like, if you did the work for us you would have some creative license on all the artwork.

This is what I think we will need for the game:
bushes X 10
Trees X 10

Character Animation sprites
this would be the man and the raft as a single sprite
*Estimating 3 frames for each
fishing successful
fishing no fish caught
raft speed increase
raft speed decrease

crocodile swim
crocodile bite X 2
anaconda swim
anaconda impact

Rocks X 5
fallen tree X 2
white water animation (show fast water speed)
backpack on the raft
riverside clearing
riverside camp (a larger clearing)

im guessing 16X16 but open to suggestions.
food X 16 different foods, mainly fruit
plants X 8 (these are medicinal plants)
message in a bottle
hidden item/question mark

The perspective is side on, here is a prototype screenshot:

Again, I'm really sorry this is not a job offer until I speak with my partner but if you are interested and think you can complete the work before July please get in touch and we will be sure to come back to you if we go ahead.

Thanks a lot and carry on making the brilliant art that brought me to this site.

Your project looks really interesting and I'd love to work with you! The price for each asset depends a bit on what size/resolution you want them in and also which artstyle you're looking for. Depending on the answer to those questions the price for one sprite/frame is probably somewhere between 10-25$.

Have a look at my earlier work and get in touch so we can discuss the project in more detail! - Illustration & Concept Art - Game assets, pixel art & Animation

I look forward to hearing from you.
