Recruiting: Card Artist

Grynn’s Fairy Tales is looking for a Card Artist to work on Wizardry Cards for PurebloodMuggle. Working on other projects in the future may be possible as well.

This is, at this time, a volunteer position.

In order to regularly provide a new set of Wizardry Cards for the members to collect, PurebloodMuggle is in need of an artist to create the images for the cards. The artist will be working together with Rhynn to create the final cards.

To apply for this position, please send an email to info@grynnsfairytales.com with your reason for applying, why you think you’d be a good fit, and examples of your work (a link to an online portfolio is fine). If you are already a member of PurebloodMuggle, please also include the username you’re signed up as.

Requirements

Preferably, you can work in the existing style of the card images. This is a relatively simple style with big, simplified shapes. However, if it allows you to work better/quicker, bringing in your own style can be discussed. We will require examples of your work, including at least one in the present style if this does not match your usual style.

You need to be able to deliver a new set regularly. We hope to release a new set each month, but depending on set size and artist time limitations, we may make this once every two months instead.

All art made will become property of Grynn’s Fairy Tales and PurebloodMuggle, so you need to be comfortable with this. A contract will be signed with more details before you start work.

What we offer

We offer a position as site staff on PurebloodMuggle. As part of the staff, you get access to a private forum where all the site development happens, and you’ll be able to give your input on all of it. You will have an active part in shaping the site if you so wish.

We may be able to offer payment in the future, depending on how much the site earns. This is no guarantee, but it is something we really would like to be able to do.

You will receive a free Rare Card Pack for each set you create. You will also get a free Premium membership for as long as you are part of PurebloodMuggle staff.

After your work has been released on-site, you will be able to add the work to your portfolio, naturally.

    Drawing the Line: the Sprite Outlines

    You know about the basics, checked out the first steps, and prepared a sketch to work from. In other words, you’re ready to start putting down your first actual pixels! We’re going to get started with the sprite outlines. First we’re going to have a look at the basics of pixel lines, and then we’ll apply what we’ve learned to the sketch we prepared in the previous lesson! Straight lines Let’s revisit the definition of pixel art for a moment: an artwork in which every single pixel was placed with an express purpose in mind. Knowing that, it follows that making … Continue reading
