"Eisai", a slice-of-life, college-based VN, is looking for artists

Hello everyone! I'm Leonhart231, posting on behalf of Shotglass Studios for our game called "Eisai".

Story/genre
Eisai is a visual novel about first impressions, how they are often what they first seemed, and how strangers in new places can surprise you. The main character, running from a dysfunctional family, hopes to get a fresh start in college after being accepted to a prestigious honor society program called “Eisai”. But the studious young introvert quickly learns that “fresh starts” require embracing that which you’re not used to and leaving your comfort zone. It’s a comedy, a drama, a romance…a slice of life!

You can see the current state of the game (a bit over 1/2 complete right now) by downloading the demo here on GitLab. This includes a prologue which is in a bit of a rough state in terms of art, but act 1 is significantly more complete.

Who is on the team
Wolvenfire86 is the creative lead and main writer for the project. I, Leonhart231, am the programmer.

What we're looking for
We are looking for artists able to work for free on backgrounds and/or character sprites.

For backgrounds, we're looking for about a dozen new ones plus about half a dozen edits (color changes for night for example) to existing ones. You can see the current ones here.

For character sprites, we're looking for a few for one new character, and possibly a couple edits of existing sprites (to add more expressions, etc.). You can see the current ones here.

If you are interested, please get in touch and send/link some examples of your work. Thank you very much for your time, and I look forward to hearing from you!

Updates
2019-02-19: We have filled the sprite artist position, but are still looking for a background artist.
2020-01-23: Updated the current status of the game and links and re-opened the sprite artist position.

Hello, I sent you examples of my sprites in private message.
Does your project have a particular deadline?

Hello everyone! I'm bumping the thread since I've updated the current status and what is still needed in the OP.
