hi I'm looking do a borg project and am in need of an artist or 2 to do the arty stuff.

what I'm needing is;


sprites for borg queen norn
sprites for borg drone male norn
sprites for borg drone female norn
sprites for borg drone male Grendel
sprites for borg drone female Grendel
sprites for borg drone male ettin
sprites for borg drone female ettin

I don't mind doing all the coding, I just cant do art

thanks

Heya.

This is a project I've been wanting to do for years (or rather, help finish the Borg Norns here: http://www.darkant.karoo.net/borg.html), but I've rather lacked the skills to do them justice.

Years have passed however and I've been learning 3D modelling at university, and I feel I could create some awesome sprites. I've created sprites for SERU, The Creatures Remote Control and a couple of other agents for Papriko in the past, to give you an idea of what I was capable of before this. :)

If you're interested feel free to give me a prod. I've got time over the summer so this would be a great time for me to start!

thanks your help will be greatly appreiceated,

I will be basing it off the v2 borg again, as my last v3 failed due to unforeseen circumstances.

the first parts I would need would be a meta-room background and a ds icon


thanks

So what changes/updates/fixes are you looking at for this V3? Is it literally just adding dedicated sprites and a metaroom (maybe agents too?), or does it go deeper than that?

from testing ive found a few borg bugs. like invalid teleports and not passing correct borg genes over at assimilation.

mainly it will be meta-room and sprite sets, with bug fixes to scripts and genes.
plus I'm scaling the breed amount back while I work on it, in its current state it 4 breeds, which I will scale back to 2.

I will be happy for you to add your own artistic style to the borg art that you do


edit: I can be quite often found in the creatures chat during uk afternoon and evening time

That's handy, I'm UK based too.

I won't be able to start until next week as a warning, but I'll get in touch with you when I have some stuff to show.

Will these Borg Norns be aging or will they stay at one life-stage after assimilation?

the queen is spawned as a baby and then fast ages over a few mins, and i think the drones are locked to the age that they were assimilated at

so would need sprites for different ages, for the queen and drones,

Cool, good to know.

What was the metaroom going to be like in your head? Size, function, that sort of thing? And were there going to be any special agents that required sprites too?

i would like something maybe similar to the metaroom i had on the v3 on darkant.karoo.net.

i was thinking a 800x600 room with 2 floors and room for about 6 alcoves. it just basicly somewhere for the alcoves to go for the borg to recharge.

Is it vital that they're norns? Somehow, borg grendels seem more appropriate. Banshee Borg grendels even more so...

would be cool, but I don't understand the borg genetics, so cant convert them from norn to Grendel.

plus at the moment the project is going nowhere, due to lack of help.

I will continue to work on this and if anyone wants to help great.

If my art computer wasn't so laggy & uncooperative & if I had more free time, I'd offer to help with the sprites. [nsad]

i am actually hoping that once ive got the norn variety sorted I will expand it to have borg grendels and ettins too.

banshee grandel borg sounds cool.
