Recruiting Permanent Background Artists! EDIT: OPEN AGAIN

2008-10-14 20:13:41 by DarkOtaku

EDIT: I need as many background artists as I can get. I'm going to distribute the workload to optimize production time of each episode. PM me if you're interested.

You must be dedicated, reliable, and skilled in photoshop (or other transparency compatible imaging software, i.e. gimp). Also, you must be able to work on a deadline, as well as on a long term basis (several months to up to 2 years).


Heads up! I am currently in the pre-production phase of my next big project. It will be an animated comic (ala, Broken Saints), based on the book "Doom: Knee Deep in the Dead" which in turn is based on the videogame. It will be mostly action based, and done in a much grittier, more kinetic style than other animated comics out there.

The Gates were there on Phobos when mankind first arrived. Inert, unyielding, impossibly alien constructs, for twenty years they sat lifeless, mute testaments to their long-vanished creators, their secrets hidden. Then one day, they sprang to life...
Meet Corporal Flynn Taggart, United States Marine Corps; serial number 888-23-9912. He's the best warrior the twenty-first century has to offer, which is a damn good thing. Because Flynn Taggart is all that's standing between the hell that just dropped in on Mars and an unsuspecting planet Earth...

Am I the Only one that wants to do this *Sign me up*

(Updated ) DarkOtaku responds:

EDIT: It appears the position for background artist has been filled.

If you would still like to apply for special effects artist, you are more than welcome.

upload an animation of some explosions/smoke-trails and stuff.


Please, feel free to PM me any example artwork you think would apply!

To whoever is applying...

We'd be collaborating very closely on the project. I'd basically do rough sketches of the backgrounds (some would be semi-detailed, some would be just planes), but I'd be able to provide you with any screenshots, reference photos, or any other artwork you'd need to help you move along. Also, we would most likely send the flash file back and forth, and I'd be able to provide you with any *ahem* software you might be in need of.

As this will be a newgrounds series (and obviously non-profit), I can't offer you anything that would pay any bills, but I would still like to have some sort of project by project plan in place. somewhere around $10-20 per project, I have no idea what my budget will look like as of yet. That part's negotiable.

cool, there arent enough DOOM flashes.
BTW loved your atwork in the ff7 flash, pretty classy stuff.

DarkOtaku responds:

Maybe, but none of them are continuing series based on the novel by Daffyd Ab Hugh.
