Hi! Are you still looking for lead illustrators? If so, I would like to apply if this position or other department still available. :)

Of course we are still looking for more Lead Illustrators. For example, St. Barts and New Scotland Yard are still lacking one, among other locations.
We're looking forward to your audition pictures!

Should I submit my sample works through DA for the Character and the Object Designs?

Also, should I consistently be active as a if ever I would like to apply as one of the Lead Illustrators?

Hi!

I don't know why I didn't see your comment when I checked our DA yesterday.

We have a nice application form, which you should fill out: www.improbable-studios.com/app…

The audition pieces can be sent either via e-mail to us, or any other way you like. Basically a link is enough, too.

And no, we won't expect you to work 24/7 for the project :)
However, Lead Illustrators are expected to take care of quite a few art assets, objects for puzzle art as well as portraits.
On the other hand, you can work at your own pace as long as we know about it. So, maybe you can work quick for a short time and create complete art before you have to take a break for a month or two due to exams? Or you can provide drafts and rough versions rather fast, but will take a while longer for the final art? 

I hope those infos were helpful, if not - just ask :)

Hehe, it's alright. :)

I'm at my 3rd year in college and I'm at my Production stage of doing my short film animation thesis. That's why I was asking if ever I apply as a Lead Illustrator, I'd have to consistently be active. :)
I really want to help with this project because one, I'm a big Sherlock Holmes fan (Yay!) and two, working with you guys will be an honor cuz you guys are making Sherlock Holmes game~ (/ ^o^)/
I understand the responsibilities of a Lead Illustrator if ever I apply as one of your Lead Illustrators. :)

Oh no, this is very much of a help. Hopefully, I'll be able to send my application form this week or next week. Thank you so much for the response. ^o^

Wow. The animation looks gorgeous and this is very cool. I'm glad that game is still in production. I'd love to be of help, but I'm shitty at digital art so there's no hope there. Best luck to your team! U hope to play this one day!

Trust me, you'll have a better game without me. Unless you need Estonian-English translators. XD

Haha, no right now, since we don't start a new translator team with just 1 person.

But there is always the possibility to help out as staff assistant.
