    Nothing major! I'm making a C# game as coursework and the game will be based off the game Space Invaders so I'm looking for people that can make the following images:
    • A "doomed outer space" background - as if the space is already invaded. This will be my game's BG.
    • A character ship - slightly gleaming with light a la the "chosen one to beat the Invaders". Make this ship a bit wide as well so it is more vulnerable to attacks.
    • Enemy ship 1 - dark-ish looking ship
    • Enemy ship 2 - same design as 1 but slightly bigger (these ships will appear as player progresses in game)
    • Enemy ship 3 - "champion ship" - make it tinier than ship 1 but not too tiny. This will serve as the "hardest ship to hit" and this ship should look like it's a "pain in the ass to hit"
    • Character weapon shot - a thin white strip of line that represents the character's shooting
    • Enemy weapon shot - color should be a thicker strip of bright red line that will represent all enemy's shots
    I would hugely appreciate whoever would do all of this for me. I need it for my games and I want to use as much "user-created content" as I can (I'm using my own voice for sound effects) Also, please make sure that the images are not too big nor too small - just like the size of what the ships/enemies look like in Space Invaders or any other game.

    Also, it has to be a PNG/GIF file and transparent.

    Thanks a bunch!!!

    Question:
    Does it have to be the sprite itself or just some art?
    I'm not saying I'm making them, but *maybe* I'll try to if I have the time.

    Just designs but with good quality as I'm using it for a game. I prefer it being made on a transparent background.

    And yes if you have the time, please do make it [​IMG]

    Okay... what resolution do they need to have? Amount of color restrictions, and so on? I might take a crac k at it...

    Edit: saw it in your post, however, I've never played a Space Invaders game...

    The space background will need to be 640 x 480 since that's the lowest res that I want to be supported. For the rest, think of them as objects in a simple flash game. I guess you can take a square the size of an earphone or a dime/50p coin and use that as the "base size" for all of them - but make the player's ship a tad wider.

    First enemy ship - normal size
    Second enemy ship - slightly bigger with same design as first
    Third enemy - maybe 1/4 size of player's ship and make it as "gruesome" as possible - considering the size, I wouldn't mind it to have too much design.

    For the shots, make the enemies' one quite thick and long and for the player's one, make it thin and short.

    Thank you really [​IMG] Not to sound noobish but the term is actually "spaceship sprites". I will give you credit for everything.

    Just a simple background of the space "invaded and impossible to be recovered" would be nice. If you are gonna put other stuff such as abandoned ships, please make it a bit faded.

    Oh and it's OK about the ship sprites. I found some. Do you know how to put pictures on a transparent background so when I put it in my game, the picture only moves, not a square.

    Haha the background is mint! I'm actually going after purple for the doomed theme. Thanks a bunch.
