My name is Joshua Gerrish. I'm a software engineer who recently started a mobile application development company, Empty Box LLC. We're currently working on developing our first game, Pixel Powers, which is a game featuring heroes, monsters and powers.
We need four characters, two heroes and two monsters / villains, along with two powers for each character. Each character will be a 100x100 raster color image, or even better, a vector image. The powers will be either 38x38 or 50x50.
Although the characters are heroes and monsters, they do not necessarily need to be traditional comic-style superheros. I welcome quirky and fun characters and parodies of the genre. The style should be cartoon-style and non-realistic. You are welcome to suggest characters yourself, or we can provide character ideas.
Please include a link to your portfolio or some sample artwork in your reply.
