A very large number of game developers come to Lostgarden looking for game art. (Apparently I'm on the first page of results if you search for 'free game art')
Of those folks that show up, some are happy to find my collections of free art. A whole slew of other write me asking if I can make art for them. Unfortunately I haven't done contract art for decades and now pretty much exclusively focus on game design. My artist days happened about three careers ago. :-) But still I hate the idea of not being able to connect talented teams with amazing artists.
This post is an experiment. If you are a talented artist looking to do freelance game art, add the following information in a comment below:
- Your name
- A link to a gallery of your work
- A note on if you are wiling to work for revenue share or you prefer upfront payment only.
- Some means of contacting you. For example bob [at] gameart.com
The goal is to build up a living directory of talented game artists. If you've worked with an artist on a game and you know they are open for work, do them a favor and post their portfolio here using the format above. Post a link to this page on any forum or list where game artists hang out.
All the best,
PS: I'm actively looking for an illustrator for a project, so if you post a link there's a good chance at least I'll be checking out your portfolio. :-) (The current gig involves dozens of adorable panda illustrations.) And there seem to be an unending stream of new projects that need art rolling into Spry Fox all the time.
