Job Description and About the Project
You will be part of a team of other experienced artists working to create the environments for a Blender game currently in development, called “Bucky O’ Hare”. A few of you may recognize the name from an old cartoon series or comic book.
Currently the game will only be a multiplayer death match style (Campaign may be included later). There will be no pay or profit of any kind, as the game will be using the Blender GE, and will most likely be open source, and also copy-write issues. We hope to prove that we can create something that is fun to play, worth paying for, and also looks reasonable. We also want to bring some attention to the Blender game engine, and prove it to be a powerful tool.
Hopefully we can create a good game, gain some attention, and then start making games for profit. But don’t let the money blind you, as this is about the art. Just think of money as extra incentive to work more. Who knows, we may just pull a Valve (http://www.valvesoftware.com/) and turn into a professional game studio.
I am currently the lead and only environment artist on the team, and a few additional hands would be nice. Just to speed up production, and to have an overall higher quality of work. I’m actualy trying to build a team of 5 to 8 including myself.

-Lightmap scenes and objects. (Not necessarily required)
-Create simple collision geometry for environments. (Not necessarily required)
