I promised I would post some additional information about the game and the project!
The premise of the game (and this should be kept in mind if/when you create sprites) is that humans are expanding into space and colonizing remote planets. Scientists are working tirelessly to create animals and plantlife that are better suited for the new alien environments. This means that we are looking for alien/strange/unique looking creatures that are based on existing earth animals.
(We are not looking for plant based creatures like some of the ones you might find in Poke'mon. No walking sunflowers or palm trees. All of our creatures are animal based in accordance with the premise of the game.)
We do not have the man power to create all of the creatures we would like and so we were hoping to round up some talented and motivated sprite designers here. Serious interest only, please.
The specifications for the sprites are listed below.
>> Restricted to 100x100 pixels
>>Must have access to either Paint.Net or Photoshop
(We will be requiring either .pdn or .psd files sent to us once the sprite is selected) Paint.Net is a great free program for pixel art like we are looking for. It can be downloaded here: ( http://www.getpaint.net/download.html#download
>>Sprites MUST be your own ORIGINAL work. We DO NOT want recycled/spliced together pokemon sprites.
WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO MAKE ALTERATIONS TO ANY SUBMITTED SPRITES SO THAT THEY BETTER FIT OUR PURPOSES. YOU WILL STILL RECEIVE CREDIT.
>>We are looking for two stages of each creature (Baby and Adult)
>> If your sprite is chosen we may ask for a back view as well (the dimensions for this will be provided at a later time, at this point we want to focus on the front views.
>>Make the adult forms as epic as you would like.
>>THESE ARE THE ELEMENTAL TYPES YOU SHOULD BE DESIGNING FOR:
*** if you have any questions concerning what these mean then please le us know.

OverWorld Sprite Encyclopedia:
I know making a sprite is tough work and all the details and such that go into it and that that takes alot of time. I was thinking though that since our creatures are all going to be visible in the overworld that we are going to need to make overworld sprites for all of them! This is something that I was just going to do but I figured some of you might actually be able to find time to make some of these tiny little guys.
We would need 3 views: FRONT - BACK - SIDE
Overworld Sprite Sizes:
***These are not the final versions of these sprites all have yet to go through Quality Control. Sprites that may not be added yet have yet to reach the QC stage.
