Do not bump threads - post some new content instead.
Firstly, just write a brief description; think about the descriptions on the inside of book jackets. It doesn't have to reveal your whole plot, but it should provide enough of a hook to get somebody interested. You also need to be upfront with what you mean by 'large project'. Do you mean 5 sprites or 10? More than 10? How many CGs and BGs? What kind of quality work are you expecting?
Secondly, as I stated before, this is your first post here. This tells us that you're uninterested in LSF as a community and more interested at the resources we can provide. That's perfectly alright for you to think that way, but its less likely to get you what you want. Also, had you been posting around, or at least lurking (and I can't tell whether you were or not), then you would understand that artists here (at least to the caliber that you appear to 'require') are either working on their own projects, or working on projects that they are being paid for. Any artist that would do this for free is either looking for practice (not what you want), or is being extremely generous (I guess that's what you want, but that still doesn't mean they're 'up to par'.)
What's more, still considering this is your first post, we don't know what you're like. Are you one of those newbies that aims for the sky and realizes they've taken on too much, or are you a seasoned vet? Are you likely to put your game on hiatus for whatever has captured your imagination most recently? Basically are you reliable?
Other than those things... You can either use some free, pre-made resources found on the wiki, or go on DeviantArt (or another art gallery site) to commission someone. Regardless of your decision I wish you good luck on your project and I hope you get what you need. (:

I do agree that providing information about the game would help greatly with recruitment efforts though. Even with an incredible recruitment poster, it's almost impossible to find an artist experienced with visual novels since the field is quite small. Also, you need to demonstrate your skills to make prospective artists feel like their abilities will not go to waste, and making a good recruitment advertisement is a pretty good way to begin to demonstrate that.
Uh... they're not criticising the original poster, they're pointing out that having only a single post means they'll be looked upon with some suspicion. They're not wrong, so why does it matter how many posts they have themselves?Samu-kun wrote:Not to sound like I actually care about other people's post counts, but isn't it kind of ironic that a person with 9 posts criticizes somebody else with 1 post for not having enough posts? ^_^;;
If 'lolwtfalicia' had been asking something of the community herself, then yes - it would be ironic. As it is, it's just a meaningless coincidence.
