Hey NG, been a while. An independent game dev here. My mates and I have released the first episode of Echoes, "Operation Stranglehold" last summer:

few screenshots from the gallery:
In the past we also made Portal: The Flash Version (mentioned in the NYT, cnet and more) a while back, and in the modding and horror game dev community we've recently released Nightmare House 2 (won 2nd place as mod of the year).
Working on the next installment in the Echoes series, we have two new open positions for artists. These positions are working by Axel Hammarback's guidance, who is the lead artist in Echoes, managing the style and animations. He took care of all(!) graphics in Echoes Operation Stranglehold, but this time he's loaded with university work and that's where you can come in and assist with these two aspects:
Job #1, Level artist - Draw the levels according to sketches. A level in Echoes can go from 1500px to 8000px. Level of detail and imagination are both very important here.
Job #2, Concept artist - Draw stills of the Echoes universe according to a certain description for ingame/commercial use. Once again imagination and thinking further into details in characters displayed in the stills are important.
You don't need any Flash or animation skills to apply, just plain art
This is not volunteer work. In return, we can offer you a spot in our team, a reasonable payment, the chance to work with the huge project that this is, and get some awesome experience and exposure.
If you have any questions / if you're interested, please contact me ido [at] wecreatestuff [[dotdotdot] com . I might miss it if you PM.
For those applying, we'll then contact you again soon with instructions requesting a small piece of art work to see how the communications between us work, and whether your style fits Echoes. Deadline for applying is around two weeks from now, end of Feb 2011
Thank you so much!
