The job: We are seeking a 2D character artist to help us design and paint the characters for our game. There are a total of 13 characters, but we will do one first to make sure this relationship will work out. The right person needs to be able to prep each character for animation by giving us separate body parts and facings.
Deadlines will be one completed character every 6 weeks. Faster would be better. That includes a concept/line art approval stage, then the full painting and animation in CrazyTalk Animator.
The Style: We are looking for a painted style, modern Horror, and somewhat realistic. We’re more interested in realism around the face than in the body, and it’s okay if they look painted. Just nothing too cartoony. We will provide concept art for the characters, samples, and a description of each.
To Apply: Please submit a link to your portfolio and call out any of your work that you feel represents that you can do the job. You can email your application to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please indicate your skill level with CT Animator.
Payment: For the first doll, we will pay you US$300 if we decide not to use it. If we decide to use it and continue our relationship, then we will pay US$500 upon completion of each doll. If we use it, we will give you credit in the game credits, and you will be allowed to use the characters in your portfolio.
Contract: Our characters are very important to us, and so we will expect you to commit to the schedule and to completing all 13 characters. We will ask you to sign a contract to that effect once we approve the first character. If all works out, this could become an even longer gig and you could do future characters and costume changes for us as well.
