Hi all. I'm a newbie on here, and looking for something interesting to do.

I'm an illustrator & Designer looking for a cool project to do in my spare time.

I can illustrate and design in a wide range of styles - I work in London for a great agency by day and by night I draw stuff and send it to people - sometimes they write back.

I recently did an artwork for Geek & Sundry's Tabletop starring Wil Wheaton. He liked it and it now appears on the show - it was also on the awesome Tabletop Day Live event show.

http://www.waynedorrington.blogspot.co.uk/2013/01/is-wil-whe...

So if you have something you think I can help with, let me know. I'm not looking for fees or anything - maybe just a copy of any game I help with?

Never designed game artwork before, but I know my way around the sharp end of a mouse.

Hope to hear from you soon game designers!

Wayne

All designs I have are in prototype phases. Would you be willing to do something for a game that may not ever see the light of day or rethemed to no longer use any art? I could use a good drawing for my [thing=107669][/thing] village board, found in the pictures if the game's page.

Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colours. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving. Pratchett

Hi Scott! Looking like a great boardgame so far! Nice work. I think though I'd rather find a project where I could help with an overall style from the ground up - but hey many thanks for contacting

Hi Wayne,

I don't know if you have any interest in American football, but End Zone could desperately use someone with some artistic vision and talent. In my post I describe the game as hunchback-ugly, which I think is accurate. No worries either way!

I'm working on a mafia-themed card game that your style would be perfect for.

End Zone looks interesting. Gonna print it out and give it a whirl. Would be curious to see the theming of it as a futuristic version of football or something to set it apart from all the other football games out there. I just started playing (and really loving) 1st and Goal, and End Zone seems to have a few similarities (unintentional, I'm sure) in how it approaches gameplay. Blood Bowl has the fantasy theming pretty much locked up.

Hi!

Yeah it does need some creative love - but the game sounds cool. I guess it needs some kind of style direction. How about an apocalyptic future style? Maybe with some hint of mutant or zombies?

Message me and we'll talk more

I'm working on a free print and play game right now, a revamping of a paragraph-driven game I designed last summer (the original is here Bionic). The new version uses a custom deck of cards (instead of dice) to resolve everything and my current prototype is bare of graphics and design.

The cards themselves well need some design attention (both symbols, and icons, graphics and layout) and the layout of the paragraph book will also need a graphical eye turned to it (although that's a later stage, as much writing needs to be done first!)

The game is set is a future-punky universe with megacorps, flying cars, space travel and importantly augmentations (think Deus Ex). I intend to keep expanding it and adding more adventures and tales, and the core is being designed to be a modular "conflict resolution" system (so I can use it to make more Board-Driven instead of story-book driven games).

Anyway, if you have any interest in checking it out I can send you my current in-progress draft of the prologue (which is going to be a learn to play adventure) and the prototype cards.

Wow! I love some of your previous work - I had noticed the TableTop image a few days ago in one of Wil's videos. It is glorious.

Are you really sure you're willing to open Pandora's Box by offering free (or almost free) artwork? Expect to be inundated.

Hi Craig!

Hey thanks - glad you liked the Tabletop illustration.

Yeah I'm cool with all this - it's something I want to do. I love gaming and have wanted to help people make them for ages. I have a good job as it is, but wanted something to do in my spare time to help the community.

I'm already oversubscribed! But I'm still listening to ideas and hope to help as many people as I can - it may just take time to get to them.

That if people like what I do of course! May turn out I'm good at humorous illustrations but not illustrating games!

Thanks again

Wayne

Hi Wayne,

Glads to hear it. You should definitely be applauded for such a magnanimous gesture, especially coming from someone with your obvious talents, I'm astounded you can spare the time.

I wish you the best of luck and I look forward to seeing more of your wonderful work appearing on many boardgames (despite my overwhelming jealously at your talent).

Hi Wayne, Are you still looking for projects? Because I'm looking for art. I'm working on a push your luck dice game that will be

* relatively quick to play (20-30 minutes)
* suitable for kids (I've got 4 sons < 10 yrs old)
* have a fantasy theme (dragons, magic)
* have the ability to level and customize your character

And I'm on the lookout for an artist to work with on the project, for things like a logo, images of enemies and magic weapons, as well as dice icons. I don't have any art yet at this point, so I'm trying to come up with a theme. Would this be up your alley?

Would it be possible to get added to the end of that list? I realize you've got a ways to go with those already on there, but I'd love to discuss another with you when you have some time.

Cheers!
