If you are in need of concept art and illustration for you book, game, presentation, Kickstarter, website, etc. but you are on a tight budget, licensing images may be the best option for you. Currently, AK-ART has over 100 fully owned high-resolution artworks (up to over 8000 px in dimensions!) available on both, non-exclusive and exclusive basis. If you are interested, request a detailed .pdf with previews, dimensions and prices of all the images.
If you are interested in working for AK-ART, first you need to be part of AK-ART's database. If you are a concept artist or matte painter, please provide link to your current portfolio and/or demo reel and your CV. Once approved, you will be added to artist's database and should a need for an artist that matches your style arise, you will be automatically notified.
Excellent portfolio, showcasing variety of topics as well as strong understanding of anatomy, perspective, form and colors (for matte painters: ability to create stylized and photo-realistic environments)
Strong self-organizational and time management skills
Proficient knowledge of industry standard 2D software (Photoshop, Painter or similar). Knowledge of 3D software (like ZBrush, Modo, Vue, SketchUp, etc.) is a BIG plus.
Ability to drive a concept from loose sketches to the final presentation
Good communication skills in English, both written and verbal
3+ years of professional experience and at least one AAA game, big advertising campaign and/or feature film in the credits
