The Monochrome Workshop is looking to work with 2D artists to help in creating art assets for our project the Monochrome RPG). The Workshop welcomes those interested that have a few hours (or more than a few) each week to contribute to a project!
Theme: 20s/30s Cartoon
The RPG is an adventure that follows the traveling comedian Otto as he attempts to rescue his hometown of Vaudeville from strange creatures that have been appearing, the notorious terrorists the Bleak Barons, and their leader Baron LeStache.
Otto is a bit of a loner, living on the edge of Vaudeville. He’s struggling to find his way in the world. He’s cute, he’s funny, but he just can’t seem to find the right job or the right friends.
Most of the creatures in Vaudeville appear to be having so much fun… but he just doesn’t see the world the same way. His sense of humor is a bit… odd. And the friends he does have are a bit… off. On top of all that, strange bugs and creatures have been appearing lately around his house…. Well, they are making him worried…
What You’d Do

In this position, you’d work with a team of other artists to create black and white 2D art assets for the RPG. While working with the Workshop you’ll be able to:
About the Team
The Monochrome Workshop is a new art cooperative of about 20 members funded by an Investor(s) and partnered with a development team. As a cooperative, the Workshop wants to see its members grow and flourish through professional experience. This translates into our payment model which is a rev share model dependent upon how many assets each artist creates. Thus as you create assets that are implemented into the game you get a share of the revenue from the sales of the game. Other benefits of the Workshop include
The Investor has hired a development team to work on the programming aspect of the game and to help with marketing.

What’s Been Done
The team began the development of the Monochrome RPG in February of 2019. In June the team finished the Demo version of the RPG (the latest version is available on Itch) and took it to a game convention where the response impressed our investor enough to fund the next round of development. In the upcoming development sprint, we’ll be expanding upon the Demo and strengthening its weaker elements working towards a Kickstarter or more formal round of funding.
The team is filled with a mixture of student and professional artists all helping with art for the RPG. Meetings are held once a week (with the occasional off week to allow for development time). The Workshop is using a new platform to help with task management and uses Slack for team communication.
How’s Development Going
Currently, development is paused as we’ve been creating a website and task management system for the team. With both of those almost complete we plan to start active development in October and from there continue until the team and investor(s) feel that it’s ready for a crowdfunding campaign or other forms of funding (most likely early 2020).
