A few friends and I have been spending some time on creating a pen and paper roleplaying game that so far is called Return of Xarlos (not so much because we think it sounds ossim, but because it can be shortened to RoX ). The gaming system itself is mostly done, as is the basic equipment. What our team lacks, however, is a skilled artists to give some (non-eye-cancer-inducing) visuals to what our words created, and that's why I'm here.
Most of the items in my gallery will be sketches I did for RoX and potential illustrators to work from. If you're willing to turn my crappy sketches (don't debate it, they were never intended to impress) into something more watchable, feel free to drop me a line.
I will also occasionally send out inquiries to you gals and guys if you're willing to do the artistry.
Please be advised that, since this is a hobby-project of ours and most of us are students, payment would be a more non-monetary matter ("Sure, linking to your gallery is the least I can do for your awesome work." or some such) in the foreseeable future.
Although we do intend to at some point find a publisher for the game, this is yet some time away, and even then your profits are probably not going to be huge, as the pen and paper market is, although flourishing, not exactly the New York Stock Exchange. If we receive money for the game, however, rest assured that a fair amount of that will go to whoever submitted usable artwork.
Stilewise, we are looking more towards semi-realistic styles (think WH40k, Shadowrun D&D or basically any pen and paper RPG illustrations) as opposed to manga or comic styles. Colours would be nice but are not required, especially considering that RoX is intended to be printed and coloured images are probably gonna cost a fortune at that
Browsing through my favourites would probably give you an idea of what we're aiming for, but don't feel bound to that. If your submission deviates (heh) from the suggested styles, we might still like it.
A little update:
As you can see from my Deviations, I'm not much of a visual artist. As mentioned above, these are not meant to impress anyone, just to give potential illustrators (and myself) an idea of what I'm looking for.
