Celestiapets is hiring volunteer artists!

    Celestiapets, a pet site set in space that is currently in development, is looking for volunteer artists!

    Specifically we need:
    • Pet artist - To create 200x200 pets and recolour them to a number of colours and several non-colour colours such as android and fire.
    • Graphic artist - To create a variety of graphics including avatars, buttons, banners, etc.
    • Landscape artist - To create (usually) 500x250 landscapes.

    Things you should know:
    • The site is well into development, with all the basics coded and more. That doesn't mean it is close to release, as there are some quite complex elements that require a lot of writing and coding. We're also obviously lacking in art. It will be many months before the site even hits staff-beta, nevermind launch.
    • This is a volunteer position. Unfortunately we just don't have the funds to pay for much at the moment, but if we ever are in a better financial position then it may become paid. No promises, no guarentees - so assume it's volunteer forever.
    • Once you have produced a decent amount of work (nothing excessive - one pet with recolours, a few landscapes, a dozen graphics) you will be eligible for access to the staff beta (once it is up), a lifetime gold account with Celestiapets when it opens, and a permanent listing on the site's staff listing (under retired staff if you leave). These will only be withdrawn if you are fired under exceptional circumstances.
    • Out of necessity you will find out a lot of information about Celestiapets before it becomes public. You will be required to keep this information confidential.
    • Art and graphics produced for Celestiapets will become the property of Celestiapets and you will need to provide the PSDs. You will be allowed to use it as examples of your own work, but not until it has been made public unless you have permission from the owners.

    To apply, please email chris@celestiapets.com
    Please include some brief information about yourself, an idea of how much time you will be able devote to Celestiapets and also links to some examples of your work. In addition, using the item art in this post as an example of the site's style:
    • Pet artist - Please supply an example pet 200x200 that you have created for Celestiapets.
    • Graphic artist - Please create a 60x60 avatar based upon http://www.celestiapets.com/images/items/ore_sorzal.png with the word 'Mining' on it.
    • Landscape artist - Please create a 500x250 landscape of a grassy field with a lake, a tree and a fruit bush. As this is a bigger task than the other two, I will accept one that is only part-coloured.
    I promise that if you are unsuccessful I will not use the sample work that you provide as part of your application.

    Any questions feel free to ask them here or by email :)

    Good luck!
