Various Artwork Opportunities for iOS Sci-Fi Card Game

DevianceAB Featured By Owner Nov 8, 2012
Greetings, talented artists!

Deviance AB is a brand new Swedish-based game development studio. The programming for our first product is nearly complete, and we are looking to purchase art assets for the final product to replace current placeholders. The product is a science fiction themed iOS card game. Freelance artists and studios alike are welcome to apply.

Available Commissions

1. Card illustrations
2. Title logo
3. Buttons and icons
4. Fonts

There will be roughly 25-35 illustrations needed for the cards. These will include subjects such as spaceships, humans, space and internal environments, and assorted props. The theme is sci-fi, but will lean toward realism (think Battlestar Galactica) more so than fantasy (think Farscape).

Style-wise our first inclination is a “speed paint” or “concept art” look, emphasizing atmosphere and feel rather than going heavy on the details. Several examples in no particular order:

Example 1
Example 2
Example 3
Example 4
Example 5
Example 6
Example 7
Example 8
Example 9

We are very open to seeing your own unique style, however we would like you to be capable of completing each illustration in roughly 2 to 6 hours depending on the detail required for the individual illustration as well as your personal abilities and rates. Payment will vary depending on talent so we ask that you please send us your price.

If interested in card illustrations, it would be favorable if you are capable of doing all aforementioned illustrations to keep the style as consistent as possible. If you are only comfortable doing a certain type of illustration (such as “only spaceships”) please let us know. If you are interested in several commission groups (such as “logo and fonts”) please mention this also.

Because a large number of illustrations are needed, we may commission 2-3 illustrations from you before signing a contract for the entirety of them. Alternatively, if you would be willing to put together a few sample illustrations for our consideration without payment, please mention this in your application as it would certainly help.

Brief Terms

- Prior to beginning work, prospective artists would need to be willing to sign a “work-for-hire” agreement that would assign the exclusive copyright and ownership of art produced in the agreed upon commission(s) to Deviance AB.
- This is commissioned freelance work. Prospective artists would be recognized as an independent contractor or employee of their respective studio, and would not become an employee of Deviance AB.
- We aim to make payment once we have proof that the work is complete, for example by sending watermarked samples. At this point you would be paid prior to delivering all final artwork.
- We aim to set a termination date by mid-December, however the sooner the better of course.


If any of these commissions pique your interest, we would be delighted if you email “” and include the following:

1. Name
2. Location (country)
3. Status (sole-proprietorship or incorporated)
4. Commissions you are interested in
5. Portfolio links (ideally with pertinent examples)
6. Price quote
7. Time estimation
8. Additional questions or thoughts

Please note that applications for logo, buttons/icons, and fonts, may take until late November to process as we would like to nail down the art style of illustrations before finalizing these components. Illustration applications should receive a response within a week or so as they need to be started on shortly. We will respond to all applications in time, so please be patient; if we have not yet responded it means we are still considering your application.

Thank you very much for your time and consideration. We look forward to hearing from you!
