Illustrate 20 Side Scrolling 2D Backgrounds for Game

We are looking for an artist to assist us in creating tiled backgrounds which replicate our current art style. We are looking for someone to assist our in creating backgrounds for the randomly generated portions of the game.

Essentially each background will be broken up into 3 categories ( base / tier 1 variant / tier 2 variant). Each game zone will feature roughly 7 background types, due to this we would be in need of 21 total backgrounds per zone ( 7 base / 7 tier 1 variant / 7 tier 2 variant). Our artist would be creating 1 base background for you to work from ( requiring you to create the 20 remaining backgrounds).

For each zone our artist would be creating one finished base background for you to use as a style reference and to begin borrowing from ( areas like grass for instance are expected to be re-used, just not extra large pieces). He would provide any brushes needed for the style as well as a wireframe for each of the base set of images. Wireframes would be provided for the tier 1 / tier 2 backgrounds if / when requested.

To give a bit of a description of the 3 background categories they are differentiated as follows:

Base Background images are roughly 80% unique art with the remainder sampled from other backgrounds

Tier 1 Variant Backgrounds are roughly 40% unique art with the remainder sampled from other backgrounds

Tier 2 Variant Backgrounds are roughly 10% unique art with the remainder sampled from other backgrounds

So in essence the more backgrounds created for each zone the less amount of unique art needs to be created ( highly speeding up the creation process).

Attached below you will find an example of a base background you would receive to work from, a photoshop brush set you would be provided and a wireframe. If you are interested in bidding on this project we request that you create a test background for us based on the BG_Test photoshop file attached.
