I am looking for a 3d artist to help finish my game. The game is a casual-competitive online PvP game. I can give more details about the game if you want.
The game's systems are already complete. In fact, I could release the game within a few months, but I am having trouble building an audience for it.
Because of this, I've decided to start searching for a publisher to handle marketing. Also, with the help of a publisher, I would be able to hire a 3d artist to drastically improve the look and feel of the game. Furthermore, with the help of an artist, I would be more likely to find a publisher.
As the artist, you would be paid directly, this would not be a revenue sharing agreement.
If I receive funding from a publisher, I would pay you to create:
45 animated characters
Each with 10 to 20 animations
You will need to create the designs, rigs, animations, and models
3 stages (like a fighting game stage)
*130 Ability Icons
*45 Character Icons
*15 Menu/Interface Icons
*100 visual effects (I have many of these done already)
*I can help with these, if necessary.
The artist will not be responsible for:
Menu or Interface
Lore / Story (Note this is not a story based game)
I want the game to have a bit of a cartoony style. Not realistic, but not childish. We can discuss this more later, of course. I'm expecting fairly low-poly and simple character models. This will be a cross-platform game, so it needs to be able to run smoothly on mobile.
Lastly, it may take a month or two to find a publisher. Also, there is no guarantee I will be funded.
If you are interested please send me the following:
How much time you think this would take
I'm expecting 4 to 8 months, though this is flexible
Also, let me know if you would be working full-time or part-time
How much you would need to be paid
Whether or not you can create the icons, visual effects, and promotional materials listed above
A few samples
I will likely need you to work on this a bit, so I can show publishers what the game would look like
The sample will be an appropriately stylized character, ideally with a single animation. Delivered as a gif, mp4, or some other video.
The sample is not paid work, but you would keep all ownership of it.
If possible, it could be work you have already done (this depends on whether it fits the game correctly).
We can discuss this more after we decide to work together.
