I'm a game artist with over 10 years of experience in the gaming industry and I'm working on a new side/indie game project. I'm not ready to show game screenshots yet but the art style is basically a stylized action hack-n-slash side scroller. This project is based largely on its unique visual style and fluid character combat.
The characters within the game are very minimalistic vector-esque silhouettes with a small bit of detail so the animations must be very fluid and action-packed.
I'm looking for someone who can not only create full animation sequences/libraries (walk, run, jump, idle, attack, block, etc etc) for each character but also has an interest in collaborating with me on character designs. For the beta there will be 3 characters that need to be animated - but depending on the success of our playtests there could be dozens.
This is a slow-moving project so there is no rush or deadline whatsoever. I'm looking for someone who has a good eye for animation fundamentals and has experience creating sprite sheets for games.
Please post here or send me notes with links to relevant work for this job. If you have standard compensation pricing for this type of work I'd be happy to hear that as well - but I'm open for negotiations in that department.
