Loqheart is looking for some great pixel/flash artists to help us bring our iPhone game to life. Our game is currently in development and will launch in a few months. It is a word game that has "Street-Fighter"-like gameplay, so we are looking for artists that can create interesting 2-D characters/sprites. The characters will be ordinary people (auto-mechanic, a grocery clerk, a grandma, a mailman, etc.) but when they fight, they will be just as dramatic and over-the-top as any street-fighter character. (Similar to "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World")
We're looking for artists with excellent design sense, who can create charming and humorous characters, pay attention to details, and have a finely-tuned eye towards beautiful and dramatic animations. (Flash animation experience is a bonus)
We also need someone to create the Title Art and short storyboards that come before each mission. We will provide you the description and story, but we need you to illustrate them and bring them to life. Experience creating comics and paneled stories is a definite plus. Ideally we'd like one artist to do both, but if animation is your main thing, or just concept art/storyboards are, that's okay too. We can split up the work to meet your abilities/interest.
For reference, we have paid previous artists $25-$50/hour depending on the quality. Prices and rates are definitely negotiable. We are a new company, but we are financially stable and have a record of payment.
If you're interested in helping us build a great game or want to find out more, please contact David at this email: email@example.com
Please provide samples of 2-D sprites and characters you've created and ideally any character animations in a 2-D battle context. Also any concept art showing your character design would be helpful. If you don't have any to show, we'd like you to provide a test sample to gauge your animation ability.
For instance, try creating a 15fps (240 x 320) idle animation of a regular 30-year old in a fighting stance flipping her hair back. (like her:http://img27.imageshack.us/i/redheadgirlp.jpg]image link)
Or create one of a 60-year old woman walking with her cane/walker. (like her: http://images.businessweek.com/ss/05...wls_moving.jpg)
Look forward to seeing the submissions,
Designer / Creative Director
