[Pixel Artist Wanted] for old-school RPG

Project: An old school turn-based party RPG very much in the tradition of Wizardry/Ultima/SpidwebSoftware games -- though with vastly improved game mechanics and interface. The target platforms are iPad, Mac, and Windows.

Background: As a full-time indie developer I've spent the last year working 24/7 developing the engine from scratch and creating art as I went along. Originally I had planned to do all of the art myself, however I've reached the point where it become apparent that the game would be better served if I could focus more of my time designing and coding.

The Graphics: I need an artist who can conform to the look and feel of the game as it has already been established - fortunately though, this should not be too difficult as the art is fairly simplistic. Environments consist of floor tiles (64x32 isometric diamond shaped) and walls. Objects in the world (e.g., beds, containers, trees) can be any dimension. Items are 48x48 but, if equipable by the player, have another one or two frames. Characters and monsters are all 96x96 though they usually only take up only a small portion of that space. Characters are not animated and have two frames, one idle and one for attacking. Most of the work will consist of the aforementioned environments, characters, objects, and items. I would estimate that at least 50% of the games total graphics assets are already complete.

What I'm looking for: This is a serious project and I'm looking for a serious artist. Quality is important, but speed is more important as lots of assets will be needed.

Pay: I am flexible and will work with you to come up with a scheme that works for the both of us; wether that's partial profit sharing, part up front, per individual asset, on delivery or some combination of the above.

If you have any questions please feel free to send me an email and I will be more than happy to tell you more about the project or answer any of your questions.

This project is developing into something very special and I look forward to working with a very talented artist.

This project looks great!

Email me and I can show you some art that would match your game and maybe we can work out a deal!
