2018/05/28 – Closed! Thanks to those who applied!

I’m recruiting a food artist for Café Memoria Deux!

Some overview of the project

This visual novel is a slice-of-life comedy set in a restaurant environment with five lovely waitresses. 🙂

As a general overview of progress, the script is mostly done and edited. Character art is still in the works, with 5/9 sprites done. GUI is still being worked on, and several BG artworks done.

What I need

  • 30 pieces of food artworks
  • Note that it may seem like a lot, but they do not have to be super detailed; see below
  • Minimum 800×520 resolution, 20:13 aspect ratio (note that game is 1280×720), PNG format w/ transparent background
  • Motivation, reliability, and proactivity – very important! While updates twice or more per week are nice, I’d like to be kept updated at least once a week. I can be very flexible with schedules, as long as the communication is there

Type and style of food art

  • Make them look delicious! They do not have to be super detailed – in fact the food style as seen in various anime is sufficient. Detailed backgrounds are not necessary; need to be placed against a transparent BG in PNG format.
  • The types of food you will be drawing are breakfast items (like cereals), lunch items (like pizza), dinner items (like crab legs), and drinks (like a glass of orange juice or a bottled drink).

Budget

Varying price from $10 per food item for a total of $300 (10×30), to maybe $15 per food item for a total of $450 (15×30). Payment in batches of 5 or 6. Negotiable.

Interested?

Send me an email here with samples of your work. Note: don’t send samples via attachment, but rather link(s) to your portfolio of some kind, like your DeviantArt, Pixiv, site, or similar. Speaking of which, if hired, I’d appreciate it if progress and completed works are sent via a link (dropbox, google drive, etc…), not email attachment.

Of course let me know of any questions and/or concerns.

I’ll be keeping this open for at least a week (May 21-28), and will contact you if you’re chosen. Thanks and I look forward to hearing from you!

Now that I’ve hired a new artist for CMD, it’s time to hire a script editor! It’s been nearly a year since I’ve started working on this project, outlining and scripting the story. And now here it is, ready to be looked over and edited!

What I’m looking for

  • Some experience in:
    • Creative writing, amateur or professional
    • Writing for other VNs

Compensation is around $500-$600, depending on word count of final product, at 1 cent per word. Willing to pay on a weekly basis, at least 6000 words a week ($60), via paypal. Open to reasonable extensions, and negotiable.

Recruitment Process

During the recruitment process I will be selecting a few people to edit a test sample of the script. From there I will decide who gets to edit the script.

If interested please inquire via email, with samples of previous works. Note: please when sending samples don’t copy / paste it in your message, but send as link or attachment. Of course let me know here if you have any questions and concerns. Thanks for looking and I hope to hear from you!

2016/07/09 – Closed! I’ve chosen my artist. Thanks to those who applied!

This is a bit of an emergency post, as I had to let go of my artist a few days ago. It’s unfortunate, as I’d like to keep Ezri, who worked on CM1. But issues popped up and she will be unable to work on CMD. Therefore I’m recruiting a new artist!

Some overview of the project

  • 2015/10/26
  • 2016/02/23 – yeah I know that post is for the critique, but parts of it still apply here

What I need

  • 9 full-body sprites, 6 female, 3 male (see below for characters)
  • Each character has one pose, with varying amounts of expressions and outfits
  • Anime style, looking for something like Love Live! / Idolm@ster style and proportions (see below)
  • Sprites need to be as large as possible to allow room for resizing
  • Finished sprites should be a PSD and layered to allow mix and matching of outfits and expressions
  • Motivation!

Characters / Female

Do check previous posts to get an idea on how they look like.

  • Anna – 4 outfits, 13 expressions
  • Mikaela – 4 outfits, 10 exp.
  • Tristina – 5 outfits, 10 exp.
  • Aurelia – 4 outfits, 13 exp.
  • Julia – 5 outfits, 11 exp.
  • Elena – 3 outfits, 6 exp.

Characters / Males

  • Ryne – 3 outfits, 8 exp.
  • Jacob – 3 outfits, 9 exp.
  • Alden – 2 outfits, 6 exp.

Art Style / Proportions

I’m looking for something of a mix between Love Live! and Idolm@ster or similar. For the eyes especially would like it to be in the style of the former.

Budget

Around $650-$800. Would like to pay $30 for base pose per character and comes with 1 outfit and 1 expression free, with additional outfits +$5, and additional expressions +$2. Prefer to pay as sprites get completed, via paypal. Negotiable as long as it’s within budget. While I don’t need event CGs as of now, there will likely be opportunities to do them as the project progresses.

Interested? Send me an email here with samples of your work. Of course let me know here with any questions and / or concerns.

I will be keeping this open for at least a week (until July 8 9), and will contact you if you are chosen. Thanks and I look forward to hearing from you!
