Seeking Sprite Artist for Long-Term Project [CLOSED]

#1 Post by pyopyon » Thu Mar 16, 2017 12:44 am

THE STORY.

Nova never thought she would return to Stonewater after her grandmother passed away three years ago-- but when she inherits the home she spent her summers in as a child, Nova finds herself returning to the small beach town.

Mysteries abound when she discovers a mysterious chest in the house containing five intricately carved frosted glass spheres and a letter from her grandmother telling her to break open her happiness.

​She didn't understand at first...

But everything changed when she fell into the ocean, surrounded by shards of frosted glass.
Not to give too much away but... the titular ocean pearls are heirlooms from Nova's grandmother and a catalyst for ending up in an accidental arranged marriage with one of five love interests, who are rulers of the ocean kingdoms. They are mermen, but without tails. I'm going the webbed, vaguely scaley humanoid route.

WHAT I REQUIRE.


I would like one sprite or line artist.

They need to have experience drawing/coloring ethnically diverse people, hair textures and styles (including braids, locs, 3c to 4c curls and twists) and body types. They also need to be comfortable with drawing scaley people (aka mermen, but no tails.) I'm just putting it out there in advance.

I don't want anything wild like this [x] but something more subtle, like shoulder scales, and maybe gills would be required.

They need to have some way to communicate regularly (Skype, Discord, Google Hangouts, Email, whatever) since those are main avenues of communication.

ABOUT THE COMMISSION.


This game is commercial.

I would like to release a demo as well as two routes in May. In order to do that I will need six characters, waist up, single pose, 4-10 expressions each and one character bust (for the main character), one pose, 10 expressions. If I need additional expressions, we can renegotiate for another rate.

There is a total character count of 15 for the whole VN and I would like to work with the same person. Artists with non-negotiable prices more than $40USD/sprite need not apply. Regardless of your quality of work, I cannot afford you. :(

Nova & Co. are adults/older than high school age, so I'd like them to look like it-- cartoon and semi-realism are preferred, and I am much less inclined towards purely anime style or super realism.

Please PM me here on LSF, post in this thread or email me at misse.chouette [gmail].

If you are interested in working with me, please include the following information in your message:
Subject: Ocean Pearls
  • Ethnically diverse samples of your work
  • Delivery time for sprites
  • Your rates and a total price quote
  • Any questions you have for me
NOTE: I am also open to having just clean line art commissioned. If you would like to be considered JUST for that, include price information for line art in your email/pm/post.

@LoiLoi -- Your portfolio is great! I especially thing the painterly style girl in your commissions post is adorable, however it's not quite what I'm seeking at the moment. Thank you!

@Lislette -- Thank you for your message! I have responded.

I have received your email! Thank you and I'll be responding shortly. If I can ask, can you remove my full email so the spambots don't get it?

Edited the first post to be even more clear as to what's required of the artist. (^: I hope that it's more detailed/helpful!

Hello, I'm really interested in your project. I'm comfortable and have experience in drawing different ethnicity, fantasy creatures like mermaids and different hairstyle. I have a small portfolio to show you how much I'm capable of adapting and drawing different styles, and if you're interested I'd be happy to give you a free commission to let you see if you'd like to hire my services.

Here's a dropbox link to my portfolio:

Thank you for considering me and have a great day!
