Background artist needed for College VN (Closed)

#1 Post by JackZiolkowski » Sat May 12, 2018 4:50 am

Ayo all, my name is Jack Ziolkowski, director of Productions Productions Productions and writer/director of Undeclared: Higher Education; an upcoming visual novel about college life in the american Midwest. We are in need of a background artist Undeclared's suite of backgrounds. Some info for you:

The Game: A story about Owen Takeda's freshman year of college and all the romance, self discovery, and student loan debt he collects along the way. Meet and date three beautiful girls and do your best not to screw everything up too badly. Experience meaningful choices, meet strange characters, make bad jokes, and do everything you can to figure out what in the hell you're doing with your life. The college experience, wrapped up in a humorous and thought provoking visual novel. Check out out Kickstarter page for the full scoop. ... sual-novel

The Work: We need someone to bring Swanson State University to life via background art. The exact number is open to change, but we would be looking for around 60 of them (as well as seasonal variations and the like.) Seems like a lot, and it is, however; we have a large number of photos taken from various Midwestern university campuses you will be using as reference, and you'll be taking said pictures and turning them into backgrounds (you won't be required to create a background from nothing but your imagination.)

The Pay: We have money from the Kickstarter set aside for this very purpose. Exact rates are negotiable, looking for something between the 3-4k range to be paid on a per background basis. Schedule is flexible. Naturally you will be credited.

If you are interested, please send us some of your work and let us know about your past experience. If you have little official experience don't worry, we are more interested in the future then the past. Also make sure to let us know your availability for the next few months, and how much time you can spare to work with our project. You can post your stuff in this thread or send us an email at Also forgive any flagrant spelling mistakes, it's 4:47am at time of writing and I am a simple (tired) mortal man. Thanks for your time friends, looking forward to hearing from you!

Hey, I'm interested!

I've had some experience drawing BGs in my personal art and for others' projects relying heavily on references.
I'm also interested in drawing more BGs to make myself more comfortable with it and be faster!
Here is my portfolio:
