Experienced 2D artist/animator available.


My name is Michael Yatskar, and I am an experienced 2D game artist. I have been working with independent clients within the industry for over 8 years. I can provide concept art, animated sprites, backgrounds, and GUI elements for your game. My pricing is very indie-friendly! I offer concept art starting at $5 per piece, and sprites starting at $2.50 per frame. Without further ado, I am including some links to sample art below.

Retro-styled concept art and sprite:

Fighting game concept and sprite: (WIP)

High-res overhead sprite walk/attack cycle tests:

Logo design:

Environmental objects concept art (created for The Repopulation MMO)

Link to a screenshot from The Repopulation (features some of my GUI work)

Thank you for taking the time to look at my work.
Please don't hesitate to contact me at sleepingpaint(at)gmail(dot)com if you have any questions or would like an estimate for your project!

The screenshots from The Repopulation are just stunning. How much of that was created by you?

And the high-res overhead sprite was very well-done.

The Repopulation is made by a team of absolutely amazing guys. My contributions to the game thus far have consisted of a pretty big batch of environmental concept art and a fair bit of GUI stuff (which we're still in the process of reworking.)

Glad you like the sprite! I will probably post a batch of new work within the next few weeks. I've been keeping busy.
