THE WINNERS HAVE BEEN POSTED Thanks!
We need a Character Designer to populate our new game. To find the best talent, we are holding a small design contest.
For you - better than an unpaid "art test". For us - we hope to find professionals who get our project and can add to our team.
James Bond with a hint of Noir.
1961 is reimagined with 2012 technology and geopolitics. Midcentury bold. Powerful and paranoid.
(Mad Men. OSS 117, a little Bob Kane, more realistic visuals than American Dad, less realistic than Archer)
Balance cartoon and realistic - features should look CHOPPED!
Define character with strong angles, edges and facets.
Human, (no robot, mutant or toy look) with clear attitude.
Skecth must translate well to fully rigged 3D models in game.
One artist might win all three.
The real prize is the Concept Artist gig on our new game.
[ new ] WIN CONDITION:
This is NOT an illustration contest.
It is a design contest for 3D characters.
This means a rough pencil sketch beats a gorgeous rendering, if the pencil artist can better imagine shapes and volumes that make a face (and body) expressive, memorable and unique.
[ new ] DEADLINE:
Pictures received before dawn on Thursday April 19 2012
All non-winning submissions remain your property. We use nothing that we have not paid for.
We reserve the right to base characters on the winning designs. We plan to hire the winning artist(s) to develop these and other game characters.
Design as many of these characters as you like. One artist can win all the prizes. Post entries here. Winner will be announced here.
Our current artist did a great job on Ian. But you might try to up it. Good luck.
Due to a hasty field promotion, Ian has more responsibility than he’s ready for. He’d rather fight than think, but he now has to carefully apply his Ivy League brain and help his agents think clearly as well.
Middle aged female agent with zero hetero sex appeal. Very tough, dogged in her devotion to Ian and to hunting down the bad guys. She ain't Moneypenny. More butch. She is both intellectual and unstoppable.
Secret Agent bait. She can attract, seduce and corrupt Ian (or Cookie, I think).
She is also quite dangerous with a big gun, a stick or just her hands.
Her sweet, vulnerable appearance hides both her seductive powers and her fighting skills.
Real Estate Tycoon/Rising Communist Political Star – A billionaire making unusually large purchases of worthless desert land, and a rising populist rallying desert governments around the promise of a green (red) future. Fat, bald, but an eloquent speaker.
Military Strategist/Ousted Warlord – A ruthless military leader, hated and feared in the desert, currently waging a guerilla war against an opposing government unfriendly to Jigo’s proposal of uniting the desert countries - where he is building a naval fleet and awaiting rising sea levels. Weathered, scarred and blind in one eye.
