Job Call: Character Artist

For Leap of Faith Visual Novel Development Project

[PAID] 2D CHARACTER ARTIST for an Otome visual novel time travel story set in Upstate New York, present day and Revolutionary War era. Our main character designs are complete. We're looking for someone to develop 5-6 secondary characters in a complementary style.


Designs need to be half-body, and are single costume, single pose. Designs may include multiple expressions, depending on artist rates. Reference images, especially for historical clothing, will be provided.


We prefer receiving layered Photoshop or Illustrator files for finished work.


This project is funded by a university creative projects grant, so the artist will be paid via the SUNY Oneonta college grants office. To be eligible for payment, the artist must have a U.S. EIN number or U.S. Social Security number to submit with department paperwork. Drawings must be completed, and digital files submitted to game developer, by March 1, 2021 (last day to process an invoice for grant payment.)

If the artist and developer work well together, the artist will be considered for additional illustrations.

Leap of Faith Game Synopsis


Faith is a do-good college student with a crusader's heart. She loves her hometown, a small village in upstate New York, and is working hard to preserve a special old house on the outskirts of town. One evening, Faith’s preservation efforts and a burst of magic mysteriously collide, and she is pulled back in time to the American Revolutionary War. Working in the past, Faith teams up with the original occupants of her favorite house to help save their home and their village from British invasion. Together they play a pivotal role in the Burning of the Valleys military campaign, and help lead the American Patriots to victory.

Leap of Faith is an Otome visual novel video game with five romance routes.
