I was cleaning out some old files when I found a game I worked on about 3 years ago, called Elementa (working title, as it...never really had an official name yet). I had great plans for it, but I'm one of those people who likes the game to look good during development, so when I reached the point where I'd need graphics for my creatures and found none...the project died. I'd like to continue work on it, though!
I considered posting in Team Requests, but then found out that forum has been locked since March (it's been a while since I've been here). So instead, I'm posting some graphics requests here, with the additional information that anyone who helps may PM me if they'd like to continue working on Elementa.
Here's a screenshot of it now, using basically all temporary graphics except the billboard. I had no artist. But the style is basically Pokemon-esque.
What I need are some 32x32 (or 64x64 if you can) sprites for the monsters. They should be original creatures (be creative!) that follow these guidelines:
What: Elemental-based creatures/animals
Size: 32x32 or 64x64
View: Either front or back view
Types: Air/wind, Water, Fire, Earth, Electricity, Pestilence (plagues, disease, insect swarms, etc.), and Psyche (psychic creatures)
For more background information on these creatures, I made this chart. The left side shows the resources you collect to summon them, and the top are the creature types--the middle are the attacks and, importantly, some creature descriptions for those combinations.
Any information not given above is 100% up to you, with full creative license. If you do wish to continue working with Elementa, I'll be up front and say there's about a 60% chance it won't reach completion, and a 95% chance you (and I) won't be paid for it. If you'd just like to make a few elemental graphics and be done, that's fine, too
I look forward to seeing your creative creature creations :D
