If I get the right book sponser arranged, this will be used in a game programming book published by Microsoft Press. But should still get printed anyway, the creators name will be listed in the references or on the acompanying CD.
I need 2D graphics for a video game. PNG format, smooth fading on the edges ( I don't like pixelation )
Orientation: Think warcraft 2. Magic only, no warriors, will use wands, staffs, etc... Warcraft 2 was a little cartoony though. I would like slightly more realistic, but does not need to be picture perfect. Semi-photo realistic
The game will have a 45 degree angle view of the playing field looking down at them, and the houses will carry about a 5 to 15 degree angle to the right. (so we can slightly see the left side of the buildings.)
List of graphics:
4 tilable backgrounds(4 versions of each) + transitions
2 characters with walking standing and striking - biggest part
about 30 newly created PNG graphics (specified in details)
Complete rights to reuse/redistribute and control over all licensing rights. It is "Work for Hire", I will attempt to provide original credit back where it was originally created, however, this will be going into a collective and I may loose original creation information.
A statement Guranteeing responsibility and warranty that these are your's to give to me with the full transfer of rights. If any legal actions are taken against me because these are not yours to give, you will accept full responsibility for this graphical work you are providing.
Details on the graphics
32x32 pixel backgrounds,
I need 4 random grasses,
4 random dirt,
4 random waters and
4 random snows.
Each tile type, (grass is a type) must be cleanly tilable together.
32x32 Transfers between tile types. Take a tile for each of the background types, and select use the PNG's alpha channel to cut out the parts not used. Make sure these tiles line up well.
I need 2 character types,
Wizard looking, with a staff, and some monk type with a book.
both will have 3-6 frame walking in the 8 directions, standing while facing the 8 directions, and 2-4 frame attacks (wizard uses staff, which could light up a little and monk holds book and waves the other hand. Size Estimates between 10x15 and 20x30 pixels. 2 images, each position of the character shows up on the image.
I need 3 Buildings. One like a round castle spire, figuring 32x50, flexible on size, doorway at bottom, and dark stair opening at top. Another will be a Shrine type statue. I'm flexible here, but no nudity, no violent looks. This needs to be abstract, sizes 25x25 to 50x50. Perhaps gold or silver. and finally a rectangular tavern, stone wall finish, with an indistinguishable sign over the entrance. about 64x64.
some simple stationary objects. 2 types of small bushes, 8x8 to 16x16, 3 types of green trees, 16x32 to 32x64, try to make these fairly realistic looking, and I want to see through random pieces, as well as smooth un pixilated fading at the edges. 2 rocks, 4x8 and 8x8
PNG, no Specific platform
