Bipedal Dog

Bipedal Dog is an independent game company from the Cool Zone. We call it "BDog" for short, which just happened naturally. We make video games like Blast Rush. And probably some more later.

General overview of the role

Bipedal Dog is looking for an illustrator to provide a few pieces of sci-fi/space-themed art for our next shoot-em-up project.

This includes a handful of art pieces: a keyart piece to be used in marketing and within the game, and at least two similar pieces to be used within the game, such as menus or wallpaper. Both will depict scenes of intense action, akin to shoot-em-ups of the 1980s or '90s.

This is not a continuous concept art or character design position, though experience in those spaces is naturally welcome.

Responsibilities

Subject: Sci-fi mechanical (robot/spaceship/mecha)
Style: ideally, painterly or airbrushed
Deliverable: layered Photoshop files for making adjustments to elements/characters as needed

Requirements

Affection for the shoot-em-up genre
General knowledge of & affinity for classic console/arcade game artwork
