We are looking for promotional 2D/3D art for our game, to convey the gameplay and characters within.
Here's some more information on the game: http://www.pixel-issue.net/tag/hide-shriek/
Here's a video playlist: https://youtu.be/RC5pCIAsX04?list=P…94Nf17aKKY
The artwork needs to be cartoony, fun, exciting, and showing the spies/thieves stealth perspective, and the guards/janitors weapons, tools and defense perspective.
We have characters modeled for our game but they could be improved, if you have better ideas on how they should look like:
- The thief should look serious, with a black mask over his eyes. sneaking, crouched, holding stolen items..
- the spy should be suave, with a suit on, possibly abseiling in, or hanging from a drainpipe.
- the guard should have upper body muscles and tough guy look, walkie talkie, holding a gun.
- the mechanic should be scruffy, but with a toolbelt around his waist, holding a wrench, possibly near an airvent.
We also want to highlight the destructive nature of the game - perhaps books on fire being blown off a bookshelf, a safe with dynamite on it, smashed plates on the floor, furniture strewn around.
The environment could either be inside the mansion, or in the garden - we are open to designers' input.
Our game gives players the ability to climb drainpipes, ivy, ladders, walk along ledges, sneak into the mansion through windows, chimneys or trapdoors, and explore the environment to set traps, complete objectives such as steal jewels, paintings, statues and eliminate other players!
There are some details, videos, gifs and screenshots over at: http://www.pixel-issue.net/tag/hide-shriek/
