Hello everyone. I'm Diegoale2000, and once again, I am Seeking a background artist for a small Indie RPG.
NOTE: Our previous Background artist, is still currently working with us, however, he will be starting an internship soon, and that will slow the both of us, which could be a potential problem. we're still on great terms and I'll make sure to ask him for references if you require any.ok, After those notes. here's some information regarding the project:DISCLAIMER: The following is not a high paying job, I am working on this RPG by myself, and I WISH i could pay more. so do not post stuff regarding payment that will only hinder this thread.
ABOUT THE PROJECT:
- Dreams is a 2d RPG that is made to feel like a storybook, with Painted Backgrounds, Chapters (Called "Books"), Anime Cutscenes, etc.
-Characters made by an Art studio fill the world, unique Clothing system makes the NPCs have different clothing, hairstyles, Hair color, etc. so you don't see a town full of people that look like each other. but instead, unique people with their own styles, attitude, etc.
-Voice Actors make the Cutscenes and battles come to life!
-Team of 7 Musicians compose the Music for the game.
-Original Theme song, created and sung for the game.
-Unique, complex battle system that allows customization of your character's battling styles and movements. Any character can wield ANY weapon and try to master it.
-Unique Potion creation allows you to make any kind of Mixture! from Potions, to Poisons, to even bombs!
-Strategic movement system allows you to move in battle, changing the amount of damage you deal / receive
ABOUT THE JOB
I Am currently seeking an artist to create the backgrounds for Dreams: Essences of Life, there are around 150 - 200 Backgrounds, (they compose the maps of the game)
I'm seeking a watercolor/hand painted style for the game, and a bit of speed painted style, without losing TOO much detail.
The maps need to have layers, because some things WILL need to be in the foreground, etc... but I can make sure to explain it clearly if any of you are interested.
Now, I try to make things easy on my artists, and the style of the game is kinda drafty, painted style, so no extreme detail is required, only enough so people KNOW where their characters are walking around. but you may use a style that fits you and makes things fast and easy for you.
The Deadline for all of them is December 2007. (around 7 months)
The Payment method used is divided into 2 Steps:
1) Up front Payment on a per map basis. you'll be paid $5 - $10 per map. as soon as its finished. you may choose to receive each payment as soon as you deliver the map, or altogether at the end of the month.
2) Post-release Payment, You will also receive the total amount of money spent on the maps while the game was developed AGAIN after the Game is released. This will most likely be monthly payment of a specific amount.
we do 250 small maps for 5 dollars each, in the end you receive 1250 Dollars.
well, after the game is released, you will receive AN EXTRA 1250 dollars.
in the end it'll be a total of $2500.
You WILL have a contract that assures payment and the extra Payment(with the condition that your art IS used in the game -aka you don't randomly quit-)

Hi, after reading your post I sat down and tried to see how fast I could knock out a job like that and whether I could make it economically feasable. I think I could make it work if you have lots of maps for me to draw.
This is about a half hour's work. I can, of course, work a lot tighter if needed.

If you are still looking for artists, I am interested. I have experience in watercolor and think that this project would be a lot of fun. I charge $15 per hour, but I am sure we could negotiate a price. My gallery: www.violet-lotus.deviantart.com.
