[paid/unpaid] Looking for artists for Tower Defense game!
06-07-2012, 10:05 PM
I was referred here by one of your members with the goal of recruiting some artists for an indie game my brother and I are putting together.
In a few words, the game is a Tower Defense game based off the popular Warcraft 3 mod "Line Tower Wars". It is purely a multiplayer Tower Defense game, with emphasis put on strategy and accessibility (we plan a cross platform release spanning iOS, Andriod, PC, Mac, and Linux).
This game will be for our second title - Our first title was released for iOS May 1st ( the trailer can be seen here). We learned SO much from our first game that we will be addressing in our second game to ensure it's more successful. We also have 2 publishers that have contacted us with interest in publishing our next title - A hopeful prospect.
Our biggest weakness in terms of quality was our graphics - They were decent (praised by most reviewers), but in our minds they don't really compete with the top-tier game producers. My brother and I are both able to create models and textures, proficient at it even, but we are not on the same level as many of the artists I've seen here.
In terms of the artwork we're looking for - There are 8 planned factions/races, all with unique buildings and units. We have planned out the 'idea' of each tower and unit for each faction, however the concept work (we're not very creative) and most significantly the texturing is where we could use some help.
We hope each faction can have its own flavor and building style but still fit into the game as a whole.
Here is a quick list of the planned factions and some example units.
Humans - medieval era warriors and knights. Griffons, Pegasus
Orcs -Orcs and Goblins, Minotaurs, Giants
Forest Realm - Pixies, Dryads, Centaurs, Unicorns. Towers could be various trees.
Undead - Zombies, Skeletons, Banshees, Abomination
Infernal - Imps, Hell Hounds, Demons, Fire Dragon
Lizardmen - small scout lizardmen, bigger warrior lizardmen, various creatures based on dinosaurs like raptors, pterodactyls and triceratops. Towers could be vine covered ancient Aztec-like buildings
Tinkerers - dwarves and gnomes with various steam contraptions like Steam Engines, Gyrocopters, mechanical spiders). Towers could be steam-punk technological ones
Mountain Tribes - Gnolls, Harpies, Trolls, Cyclops
We are an indie company with no financial backing so there's very little in terms of budget - I'm aware that this sort of work is valuable and I would love to be able to afford to hire any artist we want but that's just not possible for us - That said, we do have a bit of money and will entertain quotes.
Anyone interested in contributing is welcomed to post here or contact me directly at email@example.com
The artist that referred us here produced the EXACT style that we were looking for:
