Description and Usage:
I would like to higher four to five artists to do approximately 8-10 illustrations each for a Table Top RPG. I need approximately forty high quality colored, and/or black and white illustrations/concept art (A/A+ material, and maybe A++ material depending on the cost) to be printed in a 9 x 11 book format. The theme is Steampunk/Fantasy. I want mature artwork that parents wouldn’t have a problem with, but creatively appealing to everyone. I need the illustrations to be completed relatively quickly.
Such illustrations include:
-Approx. 3 (or more) landscapes
-Steampunk style machines/inventions
-Various creature and character designs
Because this is a game that has a very specific lore and setting I will cover all the important details of the game with respect to the illustrations with the hired artists.
I would like to budget approximately no more than $4,000 on artwork (between all the artists). I would prefer to pay a flat fee per illustration, and I would like full rights to the artwork.
Please don’t be shy in offering your rates. My main goal is to receive quality artwork. I’m happy to negotiate a price based on how much work you are willing to do per illustration (i.e. number of thumbnails, drafts, the size of the illustration, etc.).
I also plan on displaying this game at Comic Con for 2011, and I am more than happy to give credit to my artists where it’s due.
I would prefer to have all the illustrations done within approximately 2 months from the time I hire each individual artist (that is 8-10 illustrations), which is approximately one illustration completed each week, but the sooner the better otherwise the book might not be ready for Comic Con.
Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to submit your portfolios. I’m only one person, so if I get a lot of submissions I might not be able to respond to every single one. My sincerest apologizes if I cannot get back to you.
