hiring 2D/3D artists for upcoming FPS

2 posts in this topic

hey there!
I am a new game programmer and small time game artist, and i have almost finished coding for my new next generation FPS game.
I am seeking some 2D and 3D artists who want to work on an indie FPS, creating models and textures, even levels if you're keen.

My vision is to raise the bar on independent games, to show that you don't need big companies to create good looking and fun games.
It doesn't matter if you have a little or a lot of experience I would like to hire you. The assets needed include: Backgrounds, terrain, vegetation,
buildings, characters and their respective textures. There is no time span or release date as quality work should not be rushed.

on release of the first iteration of the game, I will pitch the game to steam and a variety of other online services alongside our own homepage.

Payment will be through your favoured online choice such as B-pay or paypal. Your payment will be from commisions of sales, most likely, this will be a hefty outcome due to the popularity of indie games in the market. if you choose to come work as an artist for my game you will not only just get paid, but you can use your creations in your own portfolio and also use me as a referee for your cv if you wish.

if you are interested, just message my profile some of your details, or just post them on this thread:

Preferred Specialization (e.g. I only like modelling terrian, or i'm great at character modelling)
past experience(if any):

thanks for reading through that(whew!) and I hope you message me if you're interested, I promise to make this experience fun and rewarding.
