Project Description

We will need 10 characters created for a card game we are working on. The card game is a 1v1 duel game in which players use action cards based on martial arts fundamentals to wage combat against each other. There are 10 character archetypes (currently) ranging from Ninja, Knight, Berserker, Mage, etc. We are looking for character designs that will go on the "Duelist" cards (character card in play) and for use on our website and merchandising materials. We will be running a kickstarter in February in order to raise funds for the production of the game. We are looking for an artist who will be willing to be on board with us as we try to get this game off the ground.

We will probably look for 2-3 characters drawn initially to begin our Kickstarter campaign - and then (assuming we are successful) will use the funds generated to create the additional 8 characters. Our hope is that the character designs will represent the cultural significance of each character archetype, while also being exciting artwork. As a part of the Kickstarter, we may create funding levels in which custom artwork may be created for an individual contributor, in which case we would ask your help to create this as well.

We will need the images as large digital files that we can then use throughout the creation of the game. If the work is created physically (on paper) first, we would love to have these as well to potentially put up as a prize for a contributor level on Kickstarter. All credit will be given for the artwork both on the game itself and in promotional elements. (probably a tagline on the bottom of each individual card crediting the artist, as well as a mention in rulebooks, websites, posters, Shirts, etc)

We are open to negotiating prices for this project. Keep in mind, if we are able to select an artist, we will likely be contacting you for all future expansions of the project. This may include art on other cards (outside of character design).

Please include a link to a portfolio or attach items that you feel are relevant as your portfolio will speak the most.

Thanks so much!
