NOTE: I AM NOT ASKING FOR ANYONE TO DO WORK FOR FREE; YOU WILL BE COMPENSATED MONETARILY FOR THE WORK THAT YOU DO! Hello everyone, I am in urgent need of a graphic designer to complete the graphics for a game that I am making (on this site). Unfortunately, I cannot pay very well, as I myself am only making a very small amount of money on this project (approximately $120). The game is due in approximately two weeks, so I really need all of the graphics done in a week if possible. There are a substantial amount of graphics that will need to be created; some of them are already done, but many more will need to be created; I am going to need cutscenes, backgrounds, and characters drawn. It is acceptable to draw things on paper in just pencil and then scan them into the computer and send them to me; I am looking for the best quality work that is possible, but I have a copy of Photoshop and can color the graphics myself. I need someone who is able to be in touch as frequently as possible; this is an urgent project that is probably going to require several hours a day of attention for the next week. Someone who is a passionate and talented artist would be ideal. The best thing I can offer in exchange for your services is a glowing recommendation and a high rating (provided the work is done well and quickly); I will be extremely grateful to anyone who is able to complete this project for me in a timely manner with an excellent quality of work. I can also write a reference letter for someone who is looking for work elsewhere if that is desired. Also, while I cannot make promises in this regard, I plan to be active in game development on this site for some time to come; if I come across a more lucrative project and I can pay better, I may be able to hire the artist who works on this project for a higher amount of money in the future. Thank you very much everyone...I look forward to hearing your bids. --Philip P.S. Please d/l attachment.

Thank you very much for your interest in the game; unfortunately, not all of you were able to get back to me with samples and a final answer on whether or not you could complete everything within the given time period. That is okay though. I appreciate your willingness to consider working on my project.
I am accepting a bid now, and unforutantely I do not have time to get back to all of you personally. Best of luck to all of you on your future endeavors, and thanks once again.
