Cheap game graphics for a limited time!!!

debugdesigndebugdesign Member Posts: 886
Hi Everyone,

I have found myself in a pickle and my cash flow has stopped. I could go into a long story of an evil client who owed thousands but I won't as its also partly my fault for working on games when I should have been doing work for clients.

Anyway, due to this problem I need paid work quick and so for a limited time I am offering my services for 'whatever you can afford'. Basically, if you send over you list of 2D graphics you need for your game and how much you can afford I will let you know if I can do it.

I have thrown together a quick portfolio of some work at
(I wanted to check if this was a viable option first).

You can see I have a cartoon-esque style so if you need graphics please let me know.

All payments will need to go through paypal and paid on delivery.

What I need:
- a short brief
- graphic list (and any sizes you are working to)
- Cost you are willing to pay

I know this is crazy but I enjoy doing graphics and I need to get some cash in quick so if you can help me, hopefully I can help you.

    Great looking work...

    Will definitely consider you for work, currently in promotion mode. But when I start planning my next game I will see how my spare funds are doing.

    Good luck...

    Hi Guys I have been working with Ian on a few projects and he is the real deal. I have asked him to do the art for my new game Angry Phone and to rebrand AppChogie with a new logo and website. Ian has provided me fast with the art to my brief and his work is outstanding 1st class.

    I had the fortunate pleasure of meeting some of you last week and if one thing was clear to me after was the presentation of the game, as you know I am a Soldier not an artist like some of you but I still want the best looking games/apps that I can and for me debug designs is my avenue to achieve this.

    Like most of us Ian is a family man trying to earn a little spends and I can relate to that and I applause the bravery for such an honest post.

    If you would like to see some of the work he has done for me please visit my current website and I will post it there, however give me an hour. The new AppChogie logo is on it now.

    If you need fast artwork to a professional standard at "mate rates" as such drop Ian a line please.

    Hey everyone. Just wanted to backup Appchogie's statement from above. I saw this post, contacted Ian with a brief of a new game i had in mind and he delivered results beyond my initial expectations. Ian was very professional and delivered my artwork in a very fast time. I urge anyone looking for an artist to get in contact with him. Thanks again Ian

    Emailng debug now....for some designs and a price...
  • butterbeanbutterbean Member Posts: 4,315
    Ian I sent you an email! :)
  • rdcuberdcube Member Posts: 361
    Ian, I sent you an email as well.

    I was thinking more about 'props' for games (backgrounds, plants, etc).

    Perhaps have a something similar to 'istock' with ur artwork and users can buy and pay thru paypal.

    and then if somebody needs something very unique, u can work a deal with the developer (commission, percent on sales, etc).

    just a thought.

    Thanks beefy and chogie, I am really enjoying working with you, you have some awesome concepts...

    Thanks for the recent emails which I will get sorted this weekend.

    Thankyou SO much to everyone in this community; everyone is amazingly supportive!!!

    @RDCube - I am a web designer by trade so creating a site was a thought I had previously so let me know what kind of objects / packs you think you need and I wil get cracking... I have a few alreadly but any generic things you need let me know.
    - object / item (tree, chest, power up, key etc)
    - perspective ( top down, side view, isometric etc)
    - style (icon, cartoon, realistic, retro etc)
    - size (iPod, ipad etc)
    - comments ( target Market, game back story, inspiration)

    from there I can create anything you need

    @RdCube - My email bounced back to you... did you get it...

    and weirdly there is another forum post with the same title... a bit odd?
  • butterbeanbutterbean Member Posts: 4,315
    Let me tell you, Ian delivers oustanding work, and for a very good price. His graphics are out of this world, and the speed of getting graphics back to you is amazing!!

    Thanks Ian for your wonderful work and I'll definitely keep you in mind for future projects!
  • debugdesigndebugdesign Member Posts: 886
    thanks butterbean, I'm really enjoying it!

    Ian has provided me with better prices than I wouldve ever expected, making my upcoming game a great graphical experience for everyone! Thanks Ian! To everyone out there skeptical about this, dont be. Ian's speed in getting me the animations I needed was amazing and I recommend him to anyone wanting great graphics for their game!

    Thanks Ian, you will be hearing from me again soon!
  • butterbeanbutterbean Member Posts: 4,315
    Yes, once again, he has done outstanding work, and very reasonably priced! Very good quality, what you'd expect to see in cream of the crop apps

    Thanks Ian!

    sent you a mail, Ian :)

    Dr. Sam Beckett never returned home...

    I can't believe how fast Ian turned stuff around. Within a day I had stuff I could work with, and on the second day, more arrived!

    He's very versatile, very fast, very good and very reasonable. To be honest, he's restored my faith in artists! :D

    If you need graphics fast, definitely ask this guy. Make sure you've written a good brief though - artists don't work so well in the dark I've heard ;)

    Seriously - thank you Ian - the work you're producing for me has me sitting here at work, itching to get home!


    QS :D

    As you can see, I sent Ian an email three days ago.

    Three days later, he's done! :D

    That's an AMAZING turnaround for the amount of graphics I asked for...

    Here's a taster of 'Project K':


    I said: I need a couple of Islands please!

    Ian said: Here, have the island from LOST


    Thanks Ian, to you and your team!

    QS :D

    His turnaround time is unbelievable! And such amazing work!
  • rdcuberdcube Member Posts: 361
    I want to give Ian a big kuddos on this as well.
    I did something a bit different though. I asked for a lot but couldn't afford much, therefore, I drew a small 'doodle' on a piece of paper, scanned it and send it to him to bring it to life.

    He did an amazing job and a day turn around for my main character.

    Now is up to me to design all around his great design...or save some money so he can get all the pieces together...he's well worth it.

    Thanks again Ian for working with low (cheap) budget indies ;^)
  • SparkyidrSparkyidr Member Posts: 2,033
    yeah. Just got to add to the rest of the praise giving posts.
    We got some graphics. Amazing turnaround time. Graphics look great. awesome.
  • debugdesigndebugdesign Member Posts: 886
    Thanks everyone, it's great to know that if one of us is in trouble the community helps out.

    I am feeling more confident about my debt thanks to you guys...

    Let me know if there is anything I can do to help.
  • RattleheadRattlehead Member Posts: 485
    I just received, what I would consider, a sizeable volume of art assets back from Ian this morning and I am extremely glad that I chose to follow everyones advice on this thread. Within hours of sending Ian my design spec and samples of my 'developer artwork' I had a quote and Ian on the job. In under three days everything was completed and completed at a level well above what my puny developer brain could have ever dreamed.

    Throughout the process Ian clearly communicated the final price and even provided samples so I could request changes if necessary (before he got too far down the road and the changes were drastic). This is one of the biggest selling points when working with an external contractor and an area I have been bit before. But not with Ian; everything was upfront and dealt with in a reasonable amount of time - and we don't even live on the same continent!

    Honestly, now that I have my art assets it will be up to me to make sure my logic does his quality work justice (fingers crossed). I will have no problem going to Ian in the future for art and I hope people jump on the opportunity to exploit his abilities too.

    You won't regret it.

    Thanks again Ian.

    Tell me about it! I've contacted him everyday now asking for "extras" for some other games, and he always does impeccable work!! :) Very addictive indeed!

    As a designer myself i've been watching this thread with great interest. And i'm glad to say, i'm now offering my own services at 10% less than whatever debugdesign is charging!

    I'm joking of course. No no get back off the floor, dry your eyes, there's more...

    I just wanted to say how bloody great this is. debugdesign has done such excellent work, and earned such great feedback, even i have been tempted to commission something (And that's tough to say for a designer). It's threads like this that put a big fat smile on my face.
