Hello everybody!
Let me introduce myself. I am a self-taught freelance artist with a wide range of styles.
My digital art focuses on the publishing and game industry and I can create any 2D image for your project, either computer game or board game.
With over 12 years of experience, I deliver honest, quality work at reasonable prices.

My services include illustration, concept art, character creation, 2D game art, etc.

Please check out my portfolio at www(dot)rallisart(dot)com.
Thank you for your time!

Sincerely,
Chris Rallis

PS. Since I'm a new member, I'll upload some image samples when I'm allowed to.

Wonderful work in your portfolio. I suggest to everyone interested in art to have a look:

I have no idea how you can get that exact a feel for lighting. I'm struggling a lot with that. I guess, the difference is you can really paint :)
Good luck getting more work! I spent the fewest time looking at the commercial work and the greater part looking at everything else. Games seem like a perfect playfield for your skills.

Hey SinKing,
Thank you for your kind comment!
Still trying to figure out how to break into the industry though.
By the way, in case anyone needs to contact me, my email is: info@rallisart.com

I keep hearing the game industry is not so much interested in 2D-only artists. Unless you are Craig Mullins or one of those established professionals, you're unlikely to get a job based on 2D skills alone. Learn a 3D application, so you can protoype your work and showcase it. 3D is really a hell of an annoyance for a couple of years, as you keep figuring out what's broken this time. However, I start realizing how much of a help it will be to me in the future.

The other way would be to look for games that are expressively 2D - which is the minority these days. A company near me makes games like Deponia. Old school adventure games with a lot of drawn (actually everything is drawn) content.

Im sure you find a job as Concept Artist, 2D only. But small teams often have people doing many things at once, bigger teams rather have specialists and you sure could apply as Concept Artist.

Do you think you could make our game team a logo?
