Elysian Shadows: Now Hiring

Postby Falco Girgis on Fri Apr 13, 2012 11:11 am

As you have all now seen, the Elysian Shadows project is back and is going strong. As a team of mostly programmers, Elysian Shadows has been bottlenecked and crippled by a lack of art assets since the beginning of the project. We have long needed to recruit more artists, but we have decided to hold of.

We wanted to get the Toolkit to a stable, workable point that would provide an artist with anything that he/she needs to begin creating assets for Elysian Shadows... After Adventures in Game Development Chapter 20, that time is now, and that software is ESTkv1.5.2.

We are looking for skilled pixel artists who can match our existing style and also help contribute to the artistic direction of the project. We are an extremely easygoing team, and we spend most of our time collaborating over in our evil, secret "Private Development Forum" on these very boards.

You will be given the opportunity to help design Elysian Shadows, help beta test all of our software, and help contribute to any other place that you see fit (storyline, level design, lua, etc). You will also be given the opportunity to appear in our Youtube series "The Adventures in Game Development" if you want... Or you can choose a more passive role of creating art and staying out of the spotlight... as I said, we are extremely easygoing, and your role in the team (other than a primary focus on pixel art) depends on how far you want to take it. :mrgreen:

If you are interested, please PM me a "resume" of sorts. Explain to me who you are, why you want to be on the Elysian Shadows team, what your prior experience is, how you found out about us, what your vision for our project would be, etc. The more previous work that you can show us, the better. You will also be asked to demonstrate your pixeling abilities. We will need you to pixel some stuff to be used in already existing tilesets, to prove that you are able to match the existing style.

Good luck, and we are genuinely looking forward to working with you! :)

I am very excited that our tool suite has finally reached a point where it can realistically accommodate real artists creating real game content. I hope to see some very enthusiastic and talented artists who are interested in shaping the world and vast environments of Elysian Shadows. We look forward to working with you!

Dear god, they actually ported ES to a piece of celery!

While your interest is appreciated, we've no lack of programming talent on the team. Even still, no part of the project is written in C#.

By all means dude, if you are dedicated to the project and have some skill don't hesitate to whip some things up or show off what you may already have. Art has always been a thorn in this project's side.

OF COURSE WE WANT TO SEE YOUR ART!

There is no way in god's name that we would ever let anybody on the team as a pixel artist without seeing your pixel art!

Agreed, what team would want someone who says they can produce 'art' but never mount to showing off any of their work?
