I am developing a game that includes decorating your room with many purchasable items/decor/furniture/room types similar to Nightclub city/Farmville/Club Penguin Igloos. I want the art style to be similar Farmville, but not sure of what the art style is called. Also was wondering if it would be necessary to hire an art director if I wanted to keep releasing new items regularly after the games release or if it would be better to pay for a freelance artist to regularly design the items for me. Thanks
that's pre-rendered art. that's made in 3D and rendered into 2D.and the artist did nice touchups in photoshop so you can tell he did a good job. freelance or an inhouse artist? do get an artist. from experience working on different projects communicating with a freelance artist is difficult and he will dog you on prices because he workers per/something. an artist will work on your rates because you pay him monthly and you will have better communication.there is no need for an art lead, but do get someone to make you concepts, a freelancer will do. your inquire will be "2d/3d game artist to make isometric art"
>>584520much appreciated! Have you had any experience finding a freelancer online? like websites similar to Fiverr? And by concepts do you mean like free hand sketch mockups? or a rendered digital mockup? (my terms are very amateur sorry)
>>584529i am a freelancer (or at least was)if you have any movable characters (animated) make sure your guy knows animation.if its just click & point game, there is no need for that.you could hire a freelancer to do it all, but in that case its best you hire an art studio which specializes in making game assets. usually called "art outsource studio">And by concepts do you mean like free hand sketch mockups?yes, but not just sketches. but actual digital paintings.
>>584518>a game that includes decorating your room with many purchasable items/decor/furniture/room types similar to Nightclub city/Farmville/Club Penguinyou rapscallion!
>>584576just wait till you see how rapscallinous these in-app purchases are
>>584539the whole game is just the user's personalized room. and as for animation I'm thinking just a few spinny things or a shark tank wall with one big simple shark. An outsourced art studio will do just a few mockups for me? and would I tell them I need "2d isometric art like farmville"? lol
