I have the following art requirements, but as always am willing to listen to the winning freelancer's suggestions on the details:

Requirements Summary

• png format.

• Transparent background.

• 2D.

• Top down view from directly above.

• Sprites to be north facing (no rotation required).

• Frames must be in a single row, not column.

• Each frame must occupy the exact same amount of pixels and have equal spacing.

• Walking sprite sheets must cover a full walk cycle with enough frames to keep it looking smooth and natural when looped. The same goes for the death sequence.

• At least 128x128(unless otherwise stated) pixels per frame (should be scalable down to 32x32 without losing too much detail).

Menu Background Image

• Exactly 1920x1080

• Open to suggestions on this one, but thinking concept art type (pencil sketch) type image(s) of something game related i.e. a spider.

• example:


• Exactly 584x700

• A few dead spiders strewn around the place.

• Our hero with one foot resting on a spider.

• Gun firing.

• Wild look in the hero's eyes.

• Full colour.

• Game title.


• Min 128x128

• Needs to be scalable down to 64x64 and still look good.

• Open to suggestions on this one.


• 128x128.

• Single image to replace the blue bullet in the game.

Spider Lair/Nest

• Min 256x256

• I would like to place a few spider lairs/nests around the level for the spiders to emerge from.

• I am not concerned about the art of them emerging, as I will just draw them under the nest or lair, so it looks like they are exiting from it.

• Maybe make it animated so that it shudders or moves very slightly.
