    Virtual Pets

    Welcome to the Virtual Pet list forum!
    We're a virtual pets and sim games community and the largest forum in our industry. Game owners can use our forum to their advatange by promoting/advertising their games to our users and receive feedback/reviews from those members that try their games out. We support developers of all kinds from RPG developers, sim game developers to virtual pet site developers. We want to see more games in our industry come across more success and that's why we try our best to release as many guides/articles regarding online gaming development as we can.
    We're unlike other forums in our industry because we try our best to be there for our users no matter what and give them advice whenever they ask for it. Running an online game isn't an easy task, but with our many resources that we've built since 2011, you'll learn a lot from our online community. Please don't ever be afraid to ask a question on the forums because if you never ask, then you'll never receive an answer to your question and you can only improve by asking other users for help/advice.
    We have a lot of virtual pet sites' owners and sim game owners that are very frequent visitors on our online community. Along with artists, writers and programmers that come here looking for work and games to work for. Our members who are artists sell art in our art marketplace and programmers are allowed to sell their scripts in the programming marketplace. We also allow game owners to sell their game in our general marketplace
    In early 2011, we decided to make a comeback to the internet because in 2010, we had a minor setback and we had to re-launch without any content, but with a lot of time, patience, hardwork and effort, we've managed to rebuild the Virtual pet list community into something better than it was before. We actually registered our domain name on November 4th, 2004, but we were only a directory then and all we had was a basic comments system for users to post things on their favorite games..
    So, what are you waiting for, why don't you join today? If you have any problems figuring out our security code, then here's a hint, it has millions upon users and has been around since 1997.
    Our list of virtual pet sites and directory of sim games have a lot of different games listed, so we're pretty sure that you may find some games that suits your needs as a player of sim games or virtual pet sites.
    If you're still curious about a certain game that you'd like to play, then please check out some of our game reviews that were written by some of our great contributors and our interviews with respective virtual pet site owners, sim game owners, artists, writers and programmers that have worked in this industry.

    Boo! Artists Needed!

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]


    BooPets is looking for artists! We are looking for talented individuals to join our team and complete a variety of artwork. There are both temporary and permanent positions available, so whether you some things to do over the next few weeks or are looking to join the team long-term, we are open to you!

    Right now we need several item artists and human avatar artists. Compensation is $2.50/item and $1-$2.50 per avatar clothing/accessory/feature. Recolors are $.25-$.50/recolor depending on complexity. We are only looking to fill these two positions at this time but more may be available in the future. Artists who jump on the team will need to follow the style guide and are expected to accept corrections and critiques from the lead artist. If you are new to doing petsite art, this is a great opportunity for you to learn.

    If you are interested please PM me (or e-mail to dreatherobot@gmail.com) the following form:

    Preferred name:
    Example: (This needs to be an example of the following clothing item drawn in your best attempt at BooPets style. Because previous artists have not been able to match style after saying they are able to, this is now a requirement. You will not be fully judged on your example but it will provide me with a general idea of your capabilities.)
    Tell me about it: (Please list how many items, clothing pieces/accessories, mouths, hairstyles, etc you would be able to complete, by when, as well as your preference. Do you prefer drawing hair? Eyes? Shirts? Food? Toys? Shoes? Trophies? Be specific and detailed. What would you like to do for this project? Generally just let me know how long you stick around and how much you want to get done.)
    Can you provide PSD files?
    Anything else: (Anything else you feel is relevant. Alternative contact information, etc.)



    Thanks!

    I'll be reviewing applications for as long as they are coming in, so don't worry if you can't get one in right away. I will try to respond to everyone as soon as I receive their messages.

    A lot. Enough to keep you busy if you so choose. Several hours' worth, enough to give somebody looking for a lot of work... well... enough to give them a lot. Haha.

    Hope that's specific enough. xD

    @Drea
    What size lines would you say your final product has?
    I only work in a 2x the final size canvas, otherwise I feel like I'm wasting my time with details. xD

    Re: BooPets: Looking For Fast Item + HA Artists! [Paid/Short-Term]

    Sorry, I should have mentioned this.

    Final outline size for items is 1px (excluding the "stroke" step at the end,) so you'd work with a 2px brush. I would prefer that 4x size is used (working quickly and fluidly without stressing the details is one of the reasons for such a large size) but if your work is outstanding I suppose exceptions could be made. As for the avatar clothing, the brush outline width is around 7px working size, I believe, and around 2px finished, but I might be mistaken. I just ask that avatar artists try and match the outlines' thickness to the avatar's outline thickness.

    Does that answer your question? C:

    @Drea
    That does answer my question!
    I don't work in excessively large files. I find that it wastes a lot of my time. There is a lot of space I'd have to cover when drawing that is pointless if the file is a third the size.
    I might hit you up with some examples this evening if I get the time <3

    Re: BooPets: Looking For Fast Item + HA Artists! [Paid/Short-Term]

    I suppose to each his or her own! The large file size is mainly so that you can be fast and fluid without having to waste time being "perfect."

    I'll look forward to it if you do! : )

    I... I actually want to help. It's for Boopets for crying out loud! However, I'm going to have problems with payment. I don't have Paypal or any means of getting money online because my dad won't get me one until I graduate - no matter how many times I tell him about the pros about getting me one. >A>

    Re: BooPets: Looking For Fast Item + HA Artists! [Paid/Short-Term]

    Well I'm sure Paul would be able to work something out, or you could work for site credit, or some other accommodation could be made. I can't /guarantee it/ but there's the possibility of working for, say, a walmart gift card or an amazon gift card or something. I'm not sure. If you're interested I could definitely bring it up to @PaulSonny, if he doesn't read this by then. He'd be the one to talk to but I could bring it up either way.

    @Drea
    I'm really sorry, I misread your first post and the prices. I appreciate your time, so I wanted to let you know I can't afford to apply at those prices.
    But good luck C:

    Re: BooPets: Looking For Fast Item + HA Artists! [Paid/Short-Term]

    XD It's quite alright. If you need to negotiate you can send me a PM with something that you can work for and I can let you know from there if it's doable.

    If that's too much trouble I understand. : )

    Also I just realized I didn't even see this post. @_@ Liz you are free to try an example in the style, as everyone else is, and if you do I will be looking forward to it.

    I second what Drea has said; i'm pretty sure we can work something out. Catch me or Drea on BooPets and we'll work it out.
