I am looking for an artist fluent in science fiction themes to create artwork for a science fiction trading card game in development. This initial project will involve 3 illustration images that will be inserted in standard card templates. For the right artist, there will be 5-10 more images created for a Kickstarter launch project, which ultimately leads to 400 total card images being designed if successful, which will require many artists to be hired for production of the game. The artwork should be realistic in nature, but also welcomed are stylized treatments that work well with science fiction like oil painted styles, etc. could be included. Examples of prototype cards are attached with example artwork included as inspirational style that I am looking for in my artwork.
The artwork for these cards would be larger, but actual produced artwork on the cards will be 3"w by 1.25 h. So they need to be realistic, but super detailed or overly complex images won't translate well in the final work. The 3 images will be of: 1) a mega-sized futuristic tank (see screenshot 8), 2) a squad of sci-fi armored soldiers (see screenshot 11 or think Stormtroopers) and 3) a large space fighter carrier with space fighters (see screenshot 13). Again, I am hiring to produce the artwork for the card insert, not the template itself.
Finally, the price for this project is set around the concept of realistically funding artwork for the Kickstarter project, so I am looking for artists willing to be contracted for lower prices than typical artists in the card production industry, like for Magic the Gathering. So if you get work at this level, you're probably not the artist for this game; it just won't work with 400 images being commissioned. So newer artists looking to get in the ground level of this game, and a legitimate love of science fiction should contact me.
