So far, all of the sprites in this game have been designed by myself.  Some of them I put a good amount of thought into, and some are really just' temps' I never got around to taking out.  Personally, I think the sprites I have made are pretty good (I'm not really a spriter), but I have realized they may not be of the quality this game deserves.  A wise GMC member reminded me that in this industry, our 'books' really are judged by the cover, and I want PlanetScape's cover to look as amazing as the gameplay.  I've also realized that it is not possible to get the level of quality I want for this game from my hand alone, especially in time to fit in to update 0.1.6.

So I've come to you, great community of designers and spriters, to help make this project grow even greater, and get the chance to carve your name in it's foundations, forever! 

 I will be posting the sprites I need in a list below.   You may work on just one of them, or you may work on all of them.

 It's all up to you how much work you want to put in.  

HOW TO CREATE:

Below you will find the request list. Each request will have a description attached of what I am looking for, as well as the dimensions needed.  You are allowed to deviate from the description slightly if you truly believe it will enhance the sprite or the overall game, but the dimensions of the sprite in the request are final and are a requirement.  Submissions that do not meet the dimensions will be asked to resize before being considered.  Some requests will be for completely new sprites, but most will be for better versions of sprites already in the game, for these requests it is recommended you download the original work to compare to.  

HOW TO SUBMIT:

You may submit your work by filling out the form below, you'll need to upload your pictures to an image host, and then paste the links here.. You may submit more than one piece of work at  time (and are encouraged to), but you must put the name of each request above each piece work.  But please only post if you have a submission.  If you have questions you can PM me.

POINTS AND TITLES:

Each request has a point value next to it, and if your submission for that request is selected and used in PlanetScape, you will be awarded those points. Bonus points will also be awarded for completing a set, such as doing all the boss sprites for 1 boss.  Accumulating points will award you a title credit.  A larger amount of points will gain you a greater title.  The list of titles, as well as current standings, are below:

Submit your work to PlanetScape

 All artists be aware that by submitting your work to this request topic you are giving me ownership of that submission, to use or modify for use in PlanetScape, as we see fit.  Your name will be credited in PlanetScape, under your awarded title, starting with the next update after the submission was entered, and your name will always be credited, so long as your work remains in the game. 

One of my goals is to create a PlanetScape Kickstarter Project, if this project is successfully funded,  portion of the funds over the goal will go to the artists, at a rate of 10 cents per point awarded.  But no payment is guaranteed.
