As some of you know, I'm involved with a project on Furcadia called Kauai Island. There's not a lot of artists working on it, as most of the effort is going into making the map (we need items!) and coding the dream.
Even if you do not play Furcadia, we'd love to have you involved. We need patch donations and anybody is allowed to donate! We're looking for pixel artists that can draw crops, decorative animals, marine animals, various fish species, boats, plants, furniture, etc. If you can match the shading/general atmosphere of the dream I will pay you for your contribution.
I did these patches many months ago and they're in the middle of being redone, but here's a general example of the quality of pixel work that's needed. fc07.deviantart.net/fs71/f/201…
Furcadia avatars are around this large and though the animals aren't to scale we'd like to keep them around a size where they're still sprites and the detail is noticeable. You don't have to go crazy with detailed shading like I do, but some nice lineart goes a long way.
Kauai Island is a 'community' dream. It isn't just a 'farming' dream or just a 'building' dream. It's a dream that encompasses the idea of a working, functioning and fun community. Kauai Island runs off of a realistic economy where players can build mini-careers within the dream either with the shops the dream provide or by striking out on their own and starting their own business. In Kauai Island there's lots of different properties to utilize such as farms, islands, cabanas and much more. You'll be able to build your skills in fishing, farming, blacksmithing, cooking, breeding (child friendly) and mining.
Thanks for reading!
