Just wanted to put this out there… I wasn’t sure where to start but I figured my topic should be themed like the alcoholic’s anonymous motto. You know the one…. “My names Jeff and I’m an alcoholic”. That’s what character design is to me. I love it…. not so much that I drink too much of it but once I get starting with a chorus group of characters and I know who they are I don’t think I know how to stop… That’s my love.

Anyway, I recently signed up to pencil kings to get myself back in the theme of working the traditional medium of pencil on paper. Most things are digital now but I now have a steady regime of hobby work. I have talent and I know how to build believable and immersive characters.

I am also trying to break into the games industry and someone suggest I tried mod teams but then I thought why not go one step further and see if I can join someone’s indie games project. So, here I am. Nothing ventured, nothing gained and all that.

I initially joined team ups and applied to a few projects there…. no response my requests are still pending. Figured id try here next and introduce myself and my skillset. Anyway, please if you have a project and you want some 3D character art or 2D character designs/orthographic’s or if you have a 3D character you want rigged or animated – get in touch!

I think that’s me in a nutshell, anything else your gonna have to imagine (not in a weird way imagine – just nice).
Okay Nice to meet you guys!

Hi David! could you post a link to something 2D, to get a sense of your preferred style? Also, are you interested in game design/writing/marketing? I want to form a two-person team, and want us both to have a hand in most aspects of production.

Apologies, I didn’t realise people were actually replying to me on here… Damn Junk email!
I will attach a few snippets from a pending project. Mostly 2D FYI if you wanna see 3D work go here:

That’s a character I’m working on presently.

Hope that helps!

Thanks, David, impressive work! For my personal project, I’m going at a different style (less outlined, cel style), but looks like you have some interesting projects

Well I do anything really I like a challenge 🙂

How do you feel about rev-share? I’ve got some beginnings at

Revenue share? Well for me its more about the portfolio but…. sure. I checked out your game found it a little tricky to control. What exactly is your project?

I’m thinking we could begin a different project together, actually, if you’re interested. It’s sort of a Gilgamesh sequel adventure game. I have a rough outline of the settings and plot in mind. The main character would be Shamhat. I’m thinking she’d look sort of like this:

If you’d like to discuss further, please shoot an email to GMail address danwnielsen and I’ll provide further details

Hey Dan,

Apologies for the delay in getting back in touch!

Is Gilgamesh an already existing property? I see her picture that’s fine is there any stylisation? Photoreal? Erm could you pm me your exact email address? or are you telling me its your name

Get back to me
