Just Another Point 'n' Click Adventure Part 2 - Background Artist
I need a background artist to do 21 rooms for part 2 of Just Another Point 'n' Click Adventure. In the previous Adventure my brother and I did all the artwork ourselves, but now it's just me and i don't have the time to create such a large amount of artwork while still creating kick-ass content and doing all the programming. If you haven't played the first part of JAPNCA and are interested please download it from the games section of agsforums.
The art of the first part is a pseudo-Monkey-Island style (though not as detailed and cool), and i would like to stay consistent with that style. I like to focus on small detail, and as a result i usually take between 1-2 weeks per background, though hopefully a more talented individual can produce quicker results. All artwork will be done in 320x200 res with 256 colours in total. There will be a fixed pallette of 80 colours for multi-screen characters and inventory items, and the rest are available for room colours.
Interested background artists can contact me by email (email@example.com
) or post in this thread (don't PM me, i usually don't see them), with a sample of a background with the following description:
Room Number: 16
Name: Appearance Test
Description: A false room set up in the studio, one of the three tests for the treasure hunters to undertake. This false room is set up in the middle of the other two tests, and is directly opposite the entrance to the studio. The room is made up of two false side walls and one back, leaving the front open. The judge of the test is a male hand model. In the north west corner of the false room is a lifesize cardboard cutout of the male model. In the centre of the north false wall sits a dressing table with lights around a mirror, like you would see in a stars dressing room, or belong to a make up artist. To the right of the dressing table sits a rack of clothes, and in the north east corner sits a screen to change behind. In front of the dressing table sits a round colourful fluffy rug. Hanging on a wall to the left of the dressing table is a framed picture of the male model. Studio lights and other equipment can be seen off the top of the screen. a security camera is visible somewhere near the roof.
More description of the room is available, such as adjacent rooms, pixel dimensions, background anims, walkable areas, walk behinds, and specific feature descriptions, but i have omitted these from this post to try and save space and not overload people.
Artists can expect similarly detailed descriptions for all artwork
I am generally not as formal as this in writing, but wanted any people interested to understand that i'm serious about finishing this game, and am not looking for artists that will quit after several backgrounds or characters as i want to keep the style consistent.
Currently i have a character artist, and possibly a sound coordinator, (would prefer original music though). The game has been designed from start to finish with only dialoges remaining. All programming will be done by myself as before.
