Looking for Additional Artists


I'm looking to expand my roster of artists for Otherverse Games. My interests are primarily military sci-fi and superheros, with an emphasis on projects for my Otherverse America, Psi-Watch and Galaxy Command settings, though there would be occasional fantasy projects.

All styles are welcome, from photo realism to anime-esque simplicity. My final project requirements would be a 300 DPI image in TIF, JPG or PNG format. I usually commission single figure interior pieces with either no background or a minimal background, to be used as 1/2 or 1/4 page illos, though covers will occasionally be more complex (like Alex Garcia's kickass cover to the revised Otherverse America setting). I tend to re-use art work as much as I can get away with, too. Artists are welcome to resell images not specifically tied to the Otherverse America setting as stock art. For instance, if you create a generic space alien for Galaxy Command, use it in other projects, though if you illustrate an Otherverse American clinic defender wearing a bright orange vest saying "CLINIC ESCORT" that's mine, and is such a specific image I doubt it would be very useful as stock art anyhow.

Most often, I pay for images via PayPal, drawn on US Funds, half upon acceptance of the contract, and half upon completion. I can set up other payment methods, depending on where you are in the world: money orders or Western Union money transfers are fine, and I've used both methods to pay artists in the past. If you're worried about not getting paid, I'll provide contact info for some of the artists I worked with in the past, to verify how I do things financially. I don't start commissioning art for a project until I've got the money to pay for it.

If you're interested, drop me an e-mail with "NEW ARTIST" in the subject line at

Please include a link to online portfolio, blog or Deviant Art account, as well as information on your rates and average turn-around time. I'll send a 'style guide' for the Otherverse America setting to anybody who asks, so you can see what the world looks and feels like, and if everything is acceptable to both parties, get you started on some projects.

Blessed Be,
