I'm currently seeking concept artists who would value a chance to simultaneously expand their portfolios while working collaboratively to develop the aesthetic of a unique game universe.

Valuable Skills
Various forms of conceptual art will be needed to realise this game world: depictions of characters, weapons and other artefacts, vehicles, flora, fauna and landscape. If you feel you can bring one or more of the following skills to the team, please get in touch:
- An ability to work iteratively and to respond to feed-back is critical, but it is equally important that you bring your own artistic vision to bear.
- An understanding of the asset creation work-flow is useful, but not essential.
- Feel free to work in any medium you choose, whether traditional or digital, and in any style - though the ability to work in a style that is complementary to the fundamentals of the game world and to that of other artists on the team is important.
- Also useful, but not vital, is the ability to work in colour. The creation of colour studies to establish setting- and scene-specific colour palettes may be required.

Previous Collaborations
I have personally worked with several concept artists on previous projects, and my approach has always been to welcome creative input while giving detailed feed-back on work as it develops. I don't see concept artists as slave drones, but as partners in developing the game world.

Project Details

The game will feature an innovative combat system as part of a story of exploration and adventure. Further details concerning the characters and setting will be made available to applicants. Although the game centres on a single-player experience, varied multiplayer modes are also planned.

The game design is complete, and I am in the process of writing a full script, as well as of developing the aesthetic of the universe. Because the game world is fairly fleshed out in narrative and content terms, concept artists will have plenty of raw material to work with during this collaboration.

I cannot make any promises that the project, in its current form, will become financially viable - I am looking for people who would value a chance to expand their portfolios and gain experience in a collaborative, friendly atmosphere which is, at the same time, always striving towards higher creative standards. If you are interested, please contact me with a Personal Message or through email, and include, if possible, a sample of your work that you feel is representative of your style and abilities.
