I’m looking to hire an artist, admittedly on a fairly light (but not pointlessly so) budget. The work would include the following:
Clean, simple headers for each section of the gamebook. Prologue, Chapters 1 through 5, Epilogue. Black and white.
Headers for the character sheets, which there are four of in this gamebook. They’d include Character Details, Character Statistics, Inventory, and Spells. Black and white.
The cover art, which is of a crumbling stone monument in a grassy clearing, a pale moon lingering behind in the night’s sky. Upon the monument are engravings worn away by the elements and the passage of time. Although it isn’t clear why until the end of the story, the reason for the monument’s existence is central to the story, as is the pale moon. Could be black and white, could be color.
Would appreciate an opportunity to talk with you and see if you’re a fit for the project? The coder I’m working with is figuring out the project very quickly with me, despite all of the crunch of creating a gamebook, so I feel I’m ready to put a financial commitment to this personally important goal. Of course, volunteer work is also accepted if that’s your thing!
Please message me directly if interested. Sample work is appreciated, just to see if your professional style grooves with the project. Quotes for your work if you’re providing by commission are also gratefully accepted. Thanks!
PS: Ultimately, think more D&D swords and sorcery style art, rather than modern realism or manga/anime.
