  1. We are looking for a remote animator for our mobile game design team. This is a paid position in a professional and established work environment. Our design team has produced animations for some of the world's leading brands for over a decade. We are looking for an expert in Spine animation software. This position will begin with a few hours per week, but the right candidate will move to full time very quickly if not immediately. We need you available and online in our team backend between 9AM and 4PM EST (US) timezone. The position requires strong experience in mobile game art such as animation and typical 2d art workflow as you will be working with an design and development team coordinators with each project. Strong experience in Spine is mandatory, so speed and familiarity with the software is essential. This is a faced paced environment. The right candidate will be comfortable in this environment. The right candidate will have the potential to remain with us as a career, as many already have. Ideally we are looking for an animator who is comfortable creating animations for humanoid, non-humanoid, and VFX style animations. Our animations needs will vary from project to project on a daily basis. Our design team will prepare static assets and animation requests, and they will be handed to you for fast turnaround animations. Generally you will be working on several different projects concurrently, so being able to shift at a moment's notice from one project to another is essential. This is a high volume, fast paced position. Being able to envision the animation we are producing for a game is also essential. While our design team will provide you with a basic understanding of the animation such as "enemyHitFire: played when the enemy combatant is hit with a fire effect ranged spell", we expect the animator to be able to envision what they also can add to the animation to bring it to life. Creativity and added touches are a strong motivation factor for hire. Finally, because we often find ourselves creating full mini-games from concept sketches and discussions, we are in constant contact with the artist to explain the project when it begins and perform revision work. You must be able to understand English and communicate quickly without difficulty. Below are some of the things we will be wondering about (NOTE, we have training available for some areas such as 2D animation prep): 1.) How comfortable are you with Spine? 2.) How familiar are you with Photoshop techniques and environment? Can you adjust sprite delivery quickly to fit animation needs? 3.) Are you comfortable and experienced with game art, sprite sheets, and overall production flow? 4.) Are you imaginative or prefer working with very strict references and detailed animation descriptions? 5.) Can you animate without the use of IK and Mesh in your animations? If you are interested in the position, please email "careers" at "grimpanda.com" with your hourly salary requirements, portfolio links or examples of work, and best method of chat (Skype etc). Candidates who meet our requirements will be contacted via chat (text only, no worries about Covid hair!) to further discuss the position. These positions will be filled very quickly! Thank you and we look forward to hearing from you!
  2. We are looking for a remote artist for our mobile game design team. This is a paid position in a professional and established work environment. Our design team has produced art for some of the world's leading brands for over a decade. Art styles range from concept/painted styles to 'pop' vector. This position will start with a few hours per week, but the proper candidate should be ready to move to full time if they are meeting requirements. We need you available and online in our team backend between 9AM and 4PM EST (US) timezone. The position requires strong experience in mobile game art such as animation and typical 2d art workflow as you will be working with animation and development team coordinators with each project. Strong experience in Photoshop CC+ is mandatory, so speed and familiarity with the software is essential. This is a faced paced environment. The right candidate will be comfortable in this environment. The right candidate will have the potential to remain with us as a career, as many already have. Ideally we are looking for an artist who can switch between vector and realistic art styles, but a strong candidate in only one area will be considered. Experience in 3D applications and rendering workflow a plus! Sometimes we may need to render pre-created 3D models into 2D sprites for animating in software. We are looking for an artist who is passionate about creating art and have their own ideas in parallel to the direction our staff will provide. For example, if we show you a mockup of a project, we would like your mind to instantly jump to ideas that you would like to see in that environment, and be a part of the creative process alongside us. We do not want someone who will only follow a sprite list, and contribute nothing else. We are looking for a creative team member. The correct candidate must be able to produce very high quality art for our clients, and quickly. The work you will be involved with are very fast turnaround mini-games, meaning from concept sketches to finished product is usually performed in only a few days. That means we need rapid designs that are approved quickly, and iterative updates while the development team begin to include them in the project. While the games are small, the work is very fast paced, but our online team environments make communication and sharing very easy. Finally, because we often find ourselves creating full mini-games from concept sketches and discussions, we are in constant contact with the artist to explain the project when it begins and perform revision work. You must be able to understand English and communicate quickly without difficulty. Below are some of the things we will be wondering about (NOTE, we have training available for some areas such as 2D animation prep): 1.) How comfortable are you with understanding 2D animation? (Prepping game sprites to be animated, piece exports etc.) 2.) How familiar are you with Photoshop techniques and environment? 3.) Are you comfortable and experienced with game art, sprite sheets, and overall production flow? 4.) Are you imaginative or do you only work off of sprite lists? (For example: We need a little house and yard drawn. Do you suggest/add a little tree with a rope and tire swing? Or we get exactly what we ask for on the list, no less/no more? 5.) How comfortable are you with both vector and realistic, traditional style art? (both is a bonus, but not required! We will consider an expert in either!) If you are interested in the position, please email "careers" at "grimpanda.com" with your hourly salary requirements, portfolio links or examples of work, and best method of chat (Skype etc). Candidates who meet our requirements will be contacted via chat (text only, no worries about Covid hair!) to further discuss the position. These positions will be filled very quickly!

  3. Hi, I'm hoping you can share some ideas with me! I'm making web based games with Pixi.js and I'm having a bit of a hard time working with the graphics design team (this is not a developers vs designers issue!). I'm trying to find the best workflow that might help us both do our jobs faster, but I can't seem to find the right tool for it! The designers sketch and build the app in Photoshop, and I work in Typescript with Pixi. So... what we've tried so far was: they sketch up in PS and then generate all assets with TexturePacker, leaving me with a json file which I can easily import into my game. The downside of this is that I have to position every asset and create every container manually (or rather using a config file, but still that's kinda manual work). Our second attempt was that they sketch up in PS, then export that to Adobe Animate, and using the PixiAnimate plugin, they then create the files for me to use. This has improved our workflow, because I don't need to position anything nor create the containers, but there are still some flaws as they are not able to test interactive elements (they can't see how a button actually reacts unless I implement it), and I would love to not depend on Animate which seems fairly deprecated nowadays, and on an external plugin which is out of our control. Plus, designers (at least ours) do not think as programmers, and they don't make variable names easy for us. PixiAnimate creates objects using the instance name they put on Animate, but they don't follow any guidelines. If they have four items of the same group, they call them "item_1", "item2", "this_is_the_third_item", and "last_one". If there's a tool that can validate this prior to exporting (setting some kind of rules, like prefixes for elements), that would be awesome. So yeah, I'm asking for a magical tool. I know it doesn't exists, and I know some adjustments are necessary on both sides, but I'd love to hear from you guys, how do you work with your graphics team, what do they use and how do they deliver the assets to you! Thanks!
  4. there is one Online photo editor www.toolpic.com , which i one of the best photo editor on place which you can represent as photoshop online. The amazing part is that it is similar to pixlr and have all paid feature of pixlr in it's free version. You can create GIF also and also have some ready made effect which we can directly apply on the pics. I am author of this toolpic editor which we have launch and i am trying to get some response from the developer and designers community. What i want is if you can check this editor, and let us know if you would replace this editor instead of your current editor. Your thoughts on it will make us improve this editor.
  5. Hello everyone, I love to make games, but unfortunately i don't know how to make graphics for my games. This is the main reason of incomplete games. Is there anyone knows how to solve this? I am not looking for making "the best" graphics, but i just want to achieve moderate quality. Do you think can i learn some basic concept of computer graphics? Or must i outsource graphics design completely?

  7. I have started work on Photoshop script that exports layer data to a JSON file that can be imported at runtime by Phaser to recreate the design using images from a sprite sheet. This is still work in progress as I will be cleaning this up and adding more features such as bitmap text support and animated spritesheets. Add separation from the design from the game code. No more manually placing images. Make changes in Photoshop and see them right away in the running game. Does anyone else have a similar tool or process for updating and placing their images in Phaser? I used to use Flash and a FSFL script, but this new setup skips the Flash import process. The pipeline I use is as follows: 1. Photoshop using Generator and PhotoshopPhaserExport.jsx 2. TexturePacker auto creates a spritesheet from the Generator created images using a smart folder (Watch your atlases sizes in real time!) 3. Phaser imports the single spritesheet and the data JSON file for all the states as one file and creates each state when it is loaded 4. I didn't add it to my demo, but I use live.js to auto refresh the game when any changes are made 5. I use VirtualHostX to test locally across multiple devices at once, combined with live.js, they all refresh automatically when the game is updated Photoshop PSD Notes: Use Aa single Photoshop PSD for the whole game with a folder for each state, the name of the folder should match the state name in the code Any images that need to be exported as an image is a smart object with the extension .png , with Generator turned on in Photoshop, all those images will export in real time! Create additional instances of the smart objects can have a unique index as the extension instead of png so they share the same source image, for example blueBox.png, can have more instances named blueBox.1, blueBox.2 ect. The attached zip has a quick demo project, psd, and the Photoshop script that exports the JSON data. This concept is based on some of steps from this post bellow and is still very much work in progress. http://www.html5gamedevs.com/forum/14-phaser/?do=add projectNameZip.zip

  11. Hey guys, Hopefully my last lame thread topic (getting over the noob stage...), but I was wondering what everyone's attitudes and methods are to game sprites or the characters, backgrounds, objects etc. What program do you use to create your sprites and why? I'm in two minds at the moment. I'm thinking either photoshop or Illustrator, but leaning more towards Illustrator so I can create scalable graphics cause just because you think a sprite would look good at a certain size, then you code it and demo it and eek.... Too big or too small. With the vector graphics of Illustrator, I can resize the images perfectly to any size I want and still keep a great quality. Plus with layers, I can make a base and then add different layers for different stages of movement. Or is that all wrong? Thanks in advance!
  12. I created a Photoshop CC plugin that allows you to export the layers and groups in your PSD file to specific locations, as well as send a WebSocket message to your client code of the changed files. With the extra bit of client JavaScript code I provide this allows for updating of textures in your Pixi.js or three.js (other frameworks would be easy to add) in real time. Check out some videos showing it off here: http://renaun.com/blog/2013/09/live-texture-updater-plugin-for-photoshop-cc/
