I'm looking for a artist (more down the line depending on how things go) to do some images for a web based sim game that I'm in the process of designing. I'm after someone who is willing to work closely with me via discussion/quick concepts and throwing general suggestions/ideas at me as I'm looking for someone who'll be willing to a few pieces a month over an extended length of time.
Style wise I'm really leaning towards a more painterly feel, rather than the harsh rendering a lot of digital art gets. I'm not interested in comic/graphic/cell shaded art at all. I'm after detail but not hyper realism.
Currently looking for someone who's good with character/creatures though further down the track will be looking for environment and items artist/s. The direction this will be leaning towards is fantasy with a steam-punk feel.
This is a self funded project, so funds are limited. Payment with be USD via PayPal. The price range I'm looking at is between $20-$40 per race (will be three) and $15-$30 for their pets (three breeds for starters, but will always be added to)
Obviously more detailed information will be provided to the artist chosen. If you think you have the skills required and this sounds like a project you'd like to take on, please email me your portfolio/examples -With ARTIST or application in the subject- at firstname.lastname@example.org
