//Job Posting
2D / UI Artist - Could be one person, could be three. We're looking for experienced 2D artists capable of producing a variety of different types of 2D art, and regularly. You need to be able to produce textures, class icons, concept art, graphics for promotional material and all that fun stuff. We could use assistance in the future with redesigning: several in-game world textures, the HUD, the main website, and the user interfaces in game. Whatever you see yourself delighted to be doing, we can find a task to fit that feeling.

Experience with the Source Engine and VGUI is an asset, but not required. Extensive experience with Photoshop or Gimp is required.

//Examples of What You Can Choose To Do!
Foremost, we are in need of a UI Artist to make our game look better than ever. We are looking for high quality updates to our menus, HUDs, and other 2D assets.
Accessibility is king in our next updates as we expect thousands of players to play our game around its time of release. We want to implement hint system overlays, tutorials messages, etc. You may be asked to work with the existing art direction and see out it's full potential, or offer new concepts for a completely different art direction of your choice that would fit the aesthetic of the game.
A UI Artist would need to be a team player with fellow developers like our coders, team leads, and build upon teamwork with creative alternatives, new perspectives, and critical thinking.

Ultimately, you would be able to do work that excites you! Creating awesome content that looks great in your portfolio and in the game!

//Come Aboard Matey!
Our team works on the game in our free time as a project for our portfolios and for the love of the game. We work in a way that fits our schedules. We are very understanding of each others priorities - be it school, work, or other projects. Our development timeline only requires sprinting the closer we get to release, so you would be able to work at your own pace whenever you set time for it!

We'd love to have an experienced 2D/ UI Artist on-board as a PVKII team matey, helping us with anything, and working in a way that fits your schedule. We're an easy group of people to get along with and have fun doing what we do.

Your work would be seen and appreciated by thousands in our upcoming updates, and one is right around the corner...
