We've already commissioned art for the first of the nine Las Vegas artists we need for the Asteroid Arena! card art & NFTs. His name is Jay O’Leary, aka "Toofie". He’s a fabulous Las Vegas tattoo artist and our artist for The Gloops alien faction. The first Asteroid Arena! NFT drop debuted on 2-22-22 featuring Toofie’s art. If you’re selected, you can expect the same fanfare! See The GLOOP NFT Founders Packs on Nefty Blocks.
Alien Faction Art Styles:
Here are the other alien factions in the game that we need card art for, and their respective art styles. Decide which you’d like to apply for:
The Hippies – Psychedelic
The Hive Queen – Sci-fi horror
The Sky Pirates – Fantasy (or pin-up style)
The Mechabrain (“Rogue AI) – Technopunk (or mechanical)
The Big Game Hunters – Anime
The Interstellar Deity – Classical/fantasy horror
The Dastardly Duo – Classic American cartoons (2D)
The Event Cards (that illustrate the space weather in the game) – Landscape (or graffiti style) environmental artist
Note: If your art style is different from the above, choose the closest to your style.
Musicians: We need battle music to accompany the various alien factions, as well as the space weather events. We're open to any style of music.
