Looking for artist team/studio for sci-fi/space opera themed game

TranceTrippin Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2012
I'm looking for a versatile artist team/studio for an independent game I'm working on. I've worked with a variety of DA artist in the past but I'm looking for a team so that maintaining a consistent look and feel over the lifetime of the project isn't an issue.

The tentative name for the project is 'Starship Commander Z'. You are the commander of a small starship trapped in the Andromeda Galaxy after a freak accident when testing a new warp drive. It is inspired by the Sci Fi television show "Farscape" ([link]). So I am aiming for a strategy game but with characters that have personality and depth.

I'm in the process of building the game engine and I'd like to start the process of securing a team and replacing stub art with quality art in areas where the concept has been nailed down.

The list below is not comprehensive but is a sampling of the types of art that would be needed.

Characters (hero/villain/supporting)
Main Story characters

2D ships exterior and interior
2D space backgrounds
2D character art (sprites)
2D animations character movement/combat
2D animations ship firing, travel
2D art and animations for explosions/weapons firing

Character 'dolls' ( your typical RPG style screen where you can equip items)
Character portraits (used during dialogue and to show health and status)
Item and Weapon portraits (used in item description)
Item and Weapon sprites
Galactic Map (overall map of the galaxy)
System Map ( map of the individual system being traveled through)

UI - dialogue boxes (diplomacy/trade/decision)
UI - skill tree
UI - character training ( select skills to train )
UI - Main menu
UI - Settings Screen
UI - equip character
UI - equip ship

The full details are in the design document that would be provided.

Anyone interested can note me or reply with pricing/rate information and sample or link to relevant samples. Pixel art isn't required. Think iOS :)
