Need Artist for Visual Novel

#1 Post by Lucy1212 » Sat Sep 13, 2014 7:50 pm

Note: I'm looking for a partner more than an employee. This is a non-profit project, so I can't offer you any money. If this isn't what you're looking for, turn away now.

I tried drawing my own, but they're not exactly great. This is what I need redrawn. (I want them to look the same, just better quality.)

Image
Demetri, the main character of the game. He's a demon. Literally. He likes to corrupt humans and is constantly bored.
I need: Him with a neutral expression
Him in his demonic form with a smile (horns, tail, no shirt, you know)
Him in his demonic form with a frown
Him blushing
Him frowning
Him smiling
Him looking sinister (you know, all >:) and stuff)
Him angry
Him confused

Image
Alex, one of two girls you can pursue. She's a loner with a foul mouth. She likes to read.
I need: Her with a neutral expression
Her with a slight frown
Her with a big frown
Her blushing
Her smiling
Her angry

Image
Lola, the other girl you can pursue. She seems like an air-headed popular girl, but she has a secret sadistic side. She likes ordering others around.
I need: Her with a neutral expression
Her smiling
Her frowning
Her blushing
Her looking sinister
Her angry

Image
Harry, Demetri's partner in crime. He's full of sarcasm. He likes peace and quiet.. Too bad he never gets it.
I need: The bat, and that's all

Those are the images I need redrawn by a (hopefully) better artist. As far as CGs aree concerned, I haven't actually gotten to them yet, as I haven't finished the game yet. But at over an hour each day, it shouldn't take more than a month to complete. I hope. Anyway, concerning the CGs, I'll message you at a later time what to draw. You will get your name in the credits (if you want).

If you're interested, please give a sample of the artwork. If you want more information about what the story is about, please ask. And I think that's all.

As far as giving something in return, I'm not completely sure what to offer. I don't have any money to offer, (I'm 16 and and have no real job) but I have very good writing skills. So if it has something to do with editing or writing script, I could help. If you have any request that doesn't involve money I'll try my best to fulfill it.

Script from part 1 of the story (There will be 3 parts, the beginning, Lola's path, and Alex's path):

You may want to put more information about whether this is paid/not paid. If it isn't paid then it seems like quite a lot of work you're asking people to do.

6 expressions for each (bar the bat who has none and Demetri who has nine) seems like a lot for just putting their name in the credits (which would be expected anyway). Maybe you could offer something in return, eg. I'll help proofread a script for you.

Thanks for the advice, though money is out of the question so I'm not quite sure what I'd offer..

Well maybe you could offer ideabouncing? Or script writing? Anything really. It's just otherwise people might feel like they're getting a bad deal.
