Cyberpunk Illustrator for Storybook Project

Posted 3 months ago


I have a game on Steam. The game has many interactive storybooks inside. It's like a digital comic with mini games and puzzles. Each chapter is a different type of game scene, so each chapter needs a few illustrations, full-scene and with characters.

One of the storybooks is a cyberpunk story. I am looking for an illustrator to work on that. It will be a rather long project. Probably 20 to 30 chapters and sometimes multiple illustrations per chapter. But the illustrations do NOT have to be super high quality. It's mostly just important that you represent the story correctly. The scene, the characters, etc. I think experienced comic artists might be good for this situation.

My budget is wavering because I have multiple people helping me on this. Unfortunately I can not offer full-time. This is better as a side project for someone - but long-term - and I do my best to keep the budget up as long as we keep moving.

Speed is important because there are so many illustrations to do. I don't want to it to take 5 years :)  We can start off a little sketchy and fix it up later. If we could get 2 or 3 illustrations done per week that would be super awesome. Imagine we have 50 illustrations to do... it will take a long time. But we can start with "decent illustrations" and come back to improve detail later.

Summary & Notes:

-- Full scene illustrations with characters
-- Cyberpunk style, mostly like Blade Runner
-- Illustrations must fit the story as written
-- I am an illustrator too, I can provide sketches if needed
-- It's a long-term project but not full-time
-- I hope you're available long enough to complete the project, otherwise I'd have to start from scratch again.
-- Speed and quantity are important.
