Art only, text will be handled, so a bit of space will need to be left at the top to fit in a title.
Looking for a 300 dpi, A4, basic colour (shade and highlight) at around ~$200, but this is negotiable. Digital delivery required and payment via Paypal upon delivery, with the artist retaining rights to resale or re-use the art.
The cover is for an introductory comic, to explain RPGs as a concept to new players, parents, friends or children. Perhaps to become part of a series, depending on reception.
As such I’d like the cover to evoke the basic wish-fulfilment quality and appeal of games. Perhaps fantasy archetypes bracketing a d20, perhaps a player, looming about their character like a god while their character faces some peril. Those are my two main ideas, but I’m open to pitches.
An artist has had to pull out of illustrating the next Tales of Gor adventure/supplement, due to being overwhelmed by other commitments (and due to me being a soft touch as an employer!)
As such I am looking for an artist to pick up the slack so I can get the next book out.
You don’t need to know Gor, though it would be helpful. I need someone willing/able to handle mild adult content (nudity) and with an appreciation of the ‘swords-and-sandals’, ‘planetary romance’ and ‘science fantasy’ aesthetic. Your style doesn’t have to match, but an appreciation or enthusiasm of the medium will carry well.
The job is for four, B&W (pref line art) A5-A6 scale illustrations at 300-600 dpi. Offered payment is $200 USD, with a bonus if you can supply the work within a 7 day schedule. This is negotiable within reason.
Please get in touch ASAP, as this is on a first come (and suitable), first served basis!
This is a Chronicle City project, not a Postmortem Studios project. I just have the contacts and exposure here and the CC website isn’t quite ready yet.
When I made my previous open art call I got too many responses, to the point where it was impossible to respond to everyone. I realise that may have put a few noses out of joint and I apologise. If the response to this call is anything like as strong as the previous one I’m going to have the same problem. So I apologise in advance for not necessarily replying to people who aren’t successful in applying!
Colour cover (ensemble ‘cast’) digest format 300 dpi+
Up to 16 small, interior B&W (line art) illustrations (1/4 page, B&W).
Budget: $600-$700 USD (Some wiggle room). If you would charge more, give us your quote and blow us away
This is for a light, fun, indie-style role-playing game but the project may be suitable for people who wouldn’t normally work in this niche.
A familiarity with comic/cartoon/children’s/young adult illustration style would be helpful.
Please send examples or include a link to your portfolio.
The setting is modern day, Pacific Northwest American. ‘Modern day’ could refer to anything from the 1980s to today.
Character illustration is the most important aspect of the job. Fun characters with a sense of movement and expression are important.
Even if you’re not interested, please pass it on.
This could be a good learning experience for a talented art student are someone looking to gain experience or break into illustration. Even if you’re not interested, please pass it on across social media, groups, email lists, forums etc.
