I’ve been working on some more character concepts for secret project Dogwatchers, but I’m not sure that I’m going to post them all. Although things are moving a little quicker than I thought so I might have to start asking some others for stuff soon. (We’re definitely starting to have enough material so that we would be able to).
So if you’re interested in doing some concepting, shoot me some samples of your stuff. Shoot an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org (dogwatchers and dog.watchers was taken >.> ). Even if I know you and your stuff, I’d like you to do this anyway. ITS PROTOCOL, WOT WOT. (It also makes ya look professional and unlazy) A resume wouldn’t hurt either.
Unfortunately, be aware this won’t be a paying thing yet. I don’t want to scare anyone off, but always be cautious when someone tells you this because there’s always the possibility things will fall through. But as this isn’t a paying thing yet, and because… well… I’m an artist as well, I won’t be treating anyone like it is a paying thing…. yet. BUT. If things go as planned, and we do get funding, and we do start bringing in money for it, you will get paid (and I’ll start treating it more as a paying thing… then). Promise. Pinky promise. Cross my heart and hope to die.
OKAY now that that unpleasant business is taken care of, WHAT ARE WE LOOKING FOR?
Mostly environmental designs. There is a possibility of creature and character design.
The ability to adapt to a more stylistic… style. You don’t need to be able to copy mine directly (in fact, DON’T copy my style).
A strong sense of color. (I’m a color snob, so this is really important to me) You need to be able to work with vibrant colors in spotted blacks. (If you need examples, take a look at screenshots of Okami or Black Velvetopia from Psychonauts. … both games are serious eyecandy, btw, so if you haven’t played either, you’re really missing out.) Here’s a couple of examples for those too lazy to grab them:
(Optional) We haven’t decided exactly how we’re going to be translating this stuff yet (We’re still in the very early stages) but samples of pixel art, 3-D modeling, and animation (traditional or 3-D) wouldn’t hurt. Please be aware that it’s more likely we’re going to go the pixel/traditional route, but we might try and do a marriage of the two.
AND FINALLY. … if you happen to know any programming or know someone with programming skills that may be interested, let me know as well. I already know some programmers I’m eyeing for this, but knowing of more wouldn’t hurt in the least. I also have some questions I need to ask from someone with programming knowledge so that I know how to better approach this.
ONCE AGAIN. Shoot me an e-mail at email@example.com. Send any comments and questions there as well. I want to keep all STUFF regarding this project, there.
