For HIRE: Character Sprite Artist for Vampire Visual Novel (VN) semi-realistic or anime style accept

JBShields Featured By Owner Edited Jan 19, 2016

Hello Everyone!

I am seeking an artist that can create characters for a VN that I plan to self-publish. Art may be anime style or semi-realistic. I’m open-minded to this.

Blurb about the project:
"Entering into a vampire society dedicated to the arts, Mark discovers frightening clues that his mentor committed a taboo, that he is being watched by a murderous renegade, and that he may have risked his soul. Determined to regain his humanity, Mark searches for the truth about vampires."

What I'm seeking in an artist:

1)  Someone who is skilled at creating male characters (I only have three female characters in the whole story), characters of different nationalities, characters that have different features in their looks, characters of different ages. This project is NOT eroge and is rated 15+.

2) Someone who meets deadlines, flexible, is professional, someone who communicates (I get nervous if I don’t get weekly updates). References preferred.

3) A contract must be given. If you have a standard contract, I'm open to it. Otherwise, I have a contract I use for musicians, etc. I’m seeking the rights for the art/character concept produced by you for this project. 

What I'll do:

1) Your work will be credited in my VN if it is released. 

2) I will answer any questions you need so we can have good communication.

2) And of course, this is a paid job.


I need your best quote! As a writer, my budget is limited. Please give me your best offer: whether it is one flat rate OR a quote with an addition that if I purchase X amount of characters, I can get X discount.

Please give quotes, links to art samples and (preferred) references to: judithbshields at hotmail dot com .  Please label in subject as “Twice Reborn VN Character Art Query”. Please also indicate where you saw this call in your body of email.

Quotes I’m looking for:

“Expressions include body language as well as facial expressions”. I expect all character sprites to be from upper thigh up.

Want photoshop layers and flattened jpeg files for at least 1920x1080p work.

Character “Sprites”:

Line Art Characters (must be cleaned, not a sketch): 5 expressions (including body language), how much for extra outfits

Colored Characters: 5 expressions, how much for extra outfits. I prefer digital coloring.


CG Art Quotes for “Highlighted/Special Scenes”: 1 character or 2 characters; half body or full body.

BACKGROUNDS: I will later put in a call for Backgrounds, however, if you’re reading this and are interested, please send me a quote and I’ll put it aside for later (4-5 months from now). Please label those in the subject line as “Twice Reborn VN Background Query”.

Application submissions will be closed by early next week (week of January 25, 2016)!!!!

I'm open to the schedule. As long as the art is finished by the end of March, I'm okay. However, I expect 50% of the art finished by the end of February. 

If this works out, I will hire for future projects. 

Thank you very much for your time!

****Update:  I forgot to add:   I also need quotes for single character sprite with ONE emotion as well. Line art quote and colored quote.  ***
***Update #2:  Only quotes in USD please***  Thank you!

Okay, I wanted to clarify some confusion:

"Sprites: what kind are you talking about?"

Not the pixel kind. I'm looking for 2D art to use for a Visual Novel.
tksnim Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2016   Digital Artist
Hello I am interested on your project let me know if you like my art through email.
Minimum price starts with
Waist up  60~
Full body 80~
If character design is simple, I can give you some discount, but I charge more depend on complexity.
Additional facial expression color will be $10~. 
Usually waist up takes about 1~2 weeks, and full body takes about 2~4 weeks.

Here is some samples and you can see more at my DA page and Stash.
