We are soon to begin development of a MMORPG space-themed game that will be an OPEN-SOURCE GPL project. Graphics and artwork are needed to be developed for this project, on an ongoing basis. We prefer all graphics in .png AND .psd (photoshop)format compatible with all common browsers (I know there is a way around the alpha-transparency .png problem in Mozilla, so that isnt even going to be an issue) Basically I would like to see some artwork that you have done, and develop a unique logo for the game (no text required- we can add text to existing graphics later if needed, or will have you do so.) We would like to see examples of your work and what kind of pricing we might expect at a later date. note that graphics must be ORIGINAL and UNIQUE. for the right graphics, we are willing to pay for them, but ideally we would like to find a graphics designer willing to work with us and become a part of this unique project (hey, you get credits for it, always helps to improve your resume' ,no?) Anyhow, we are looking for graphics that would basically be "cool" and yet "light" enough to load quickly. we will need literally hundreds of unique graphics , anything that you can dream up, themes would be along the lines of StarWars or StarTrek style outerspace graphical themes with starships, fighters, various types of stars, asteroids, planets, suns, black holes, you name it, perhaps even avatars and characters. It's a great opportunity to showcase your creativity and talent. If you will be requiring payment for all graphics, let us know what your pricing structure would be for such work considering that we would possibly be buying a lot of graphics if it came to that .. (we will only purchase as our budget will allow, otherwise we will work with GPL licensed graphics) This bid will be for the game's logo. if you submit examples of your work we will provide feedback to you and work with you to see what we can come up with. best design to suit our vision of this project will win the bid. however, we may consider working with other designers afterwards for our needs.
