It has now been a few months that we have been working with Pixune Studios and the quality they deliver is truly impressive. From the start, they have been understanding our vision and providing 3D animations that were above our expectations. We are already engaging ourselves in a long term partnership.

Design quality and animation work were very good for character briefs and every feedback was taken into consideration. As a result, high quality design was received within a defined time frame, and Pixune was very responsive in terms of delivering our needs. They have taken everything into consideration to reflect our needs and delivered a successful project In a defined timeframe. They are very customer-oriented and try to help your activities as much as possible. Instead of taking money and running, they are like teammates for us.

I hired Pixune to develop a sample runner game in Unity. The process was very smooth due to their experience, and their suggestions were always helpful. It was a bit over budget, but the results were excellent. The sample game had no bugs and nice graphics. The project was finished 3 weeks before the deadline. I hired two freelancers on Upwork before Pixune for a similar project and not only they were months late over the deadline, but the results were also very bad. So, I have to say I'm quite pleased with hiring Pixune.

There's an old saying that when it comes to hiring people you can look for "good," you can look for "reliable," or you can look for "affordable"... but you won't be able to find somebody who is all three. In Pixune's case, I feel they come the closest of anybody I've dealt with over the past years of our company's existence. I've been really happy with Pixune. I originally hired them in the Fall of 2022 for game development and was happy enough with them that I continue to hire them for other projects, even ones that fall outside of the original reason I contacted them. Besides game development, I've had them do web design work for our site. They're very flexible, accommodating, and extremely reliable.

The quality of the art received was really impressive after the team came up with ideas and improvements all the time for the characters. Being timely and attentive to details is great but their passion and involvement in our project were amazing! We will surely collaborate again. The team is very passionate and we were amazed when we got the final result which was better than the reference we provided, a reference that we really liked. I can say that we loved their work and that they are able to take an idea and bring it to life thanks to the passion they are working with and the perfect communication they are providing until the best result is reached.

The Pixune team is full of kind, excellent, considerate, empathetic, talented, and highly cooperative people. The quality of the work that was received was outstanding, however it did take multiple iterations to reach that level. Some instructions were missed, but were fixed - it just lengthened the process and the schedule.

Awesome work. Great communication. Was really happy with Pixune and how great this project came out. Hit every deadline, and even when we needed to change directions a bit, he was able to still hit the deadline. We will certainly be working with Pixune again.

This guy did really good work, he really did amazing art and even after the artist finished he wasn't happy with it so he did it all over again from scratch. I really recommend him and will surely come back again. (this is already the second time)

This was a great experience overall. He took time to actually understand what was needed to deliver the project that I was asking for. Modelers tend to rush because they think they know what the client want, but Pixune went over to clarify the specifics. It required a little more time than we agreed on. However, the end results was worth an extra few days. Trust's worth waiting a few more days, than to have something you don't like at the end. I highly recommend to anybody reading this review. And I look forward working with Pixune again. Thank You!

Pixune got the project right from the start. We had a somewhat unique art style that needed consideration to be both cartoony and low poly. They were great at interpreting the brief and adding their own style and ideas which really helped. Throughout the rest of the concepts and 3D models & animation steps, nothing was a problem, they asked good questions and were happy to jump on a video call for updates at any time. We will be using them in the future!

Why Our 2D Art Outsourcing Services?

With a collaborative approach that values client input at every stage, we ensure our 2D art encapsulate your unique vision while exceeding the loftiest of expectations.

We are perfectionists by nature and can’t even deliver a bad game design even if asked to! An ugly art annoys our brains more than you 😀
Several times, a client was happy with a piece of art, but we were not, so we designed it again from scratch at our own expense.

You will be constantly updated to share your comments, apply any changes to the 2D art, and ensure we are on the right track. An exclusive account manager will be allotted to your project, who will manage our proper communication and respond to messages quickly. They are always available, on-call, and ready to jump on a meeting with you, even on weekends.

We welcome changes and criticism, and we are as flexible as possible when it comes to implementing revisions. However, as professionals, we will express our opinions and provide our advice. Ultimately, the decision-making lies with you.

2D art design is not only an art but also a science. Our skilled artists know and follow the required principles, including human anatomy, shape language, color theory, etc., in creating art.

Our talented artists are gamers by nature and know the ins and outs of the game industry by heart and gaming experience. Our common sense here comes into play and helps us have easier and more effective communication.

You may have experienced situations where delegating a project has resulted in both time and cost wastage, with a failed outcome. That’s not the case here. We will take full responsibility to ensure that the desired outcome is achieved once and for all.

With more than 50 successful game art projects, our track record speaks for itself. The satisfaction of the high number of our customers speaks volumes about the quality of our work. We experienced many ups and downs, which is why we know the recipe for success in game art projects.

How Much Does 2D Art Cost?

2D art services prices can be found anywhere from $1000 (€950) for a simple 2D game to $10K (€9,5K) for complex ones. The cost of 2D art can vary greatly depending on a number of factors such as game art style, number and complexity of assets (characters, environments, props, animations, visual effects, UI, etc.), technical specifications, and time.

You can contact us right now to receive a price estimation of your 2D art today.

Designing a 2D art can take from 1 to 3 months, depending on the art style, number of visual assets (characters, environments, visual effects, props, etc.), technical matters, and your budget.

You can contact us right now to get a time estimation for your 2D art project today.

Our 2D art creative process involves identifying your unique needs to have a deep understanding of your project, sketching, creating more detailed sketches, selecting the best color key and color composition, and developing detailed concept art to guide the style. Then, we apply more detail to characters, environments, and game assets, rig them for animation, and bring them to life frame-by-frame through expert animation.

There are 4 logical reasons for you to consider outsourcing 2D art:

  • Saving Money and Time: 2D art creation requires experienced artists across many roles like concept artists, modelers, animators, art directors, art leads, technical artists, etc., and hiring them in-house has challenges. 2D art companies house all the expertise necessary to bring 2D visions to life efficiently, speedily, and cost-effectively.
  • Creativity: Have you ever considered that you can outsource creativity, too? Apple partnered with Hovey-Kelley for creative ideas when inventing the mouse. AAA art studios thrive on imagination and creativity.
  • Quality: Practice makes perfect. 2D art outsourcing companies produce countless game’s art, constantly honing skills and staying current on gaming industry trends and tools. Their experience enables high-quality 2D art services delivery without wasted time or budget.
  • Scalability: Expanding a 2D art creation scale requires growing your skilled art team. That’s challenging in-house but not for a 2D art outsourcing partner with access to more game artists and game designers. A 2D art outsourcing studio maintains larger talent pools and connections to scale up readily.

Here are 3 key managing tips for rushed projects:

  • Build in a buffer time (plan for 5 weeks if your target timeline is 6 weeks) for contingencies, iterations, and reviews. Buffer time acts as a protection against any errors or issues related to the project force majeure. This way, circumstances that might not go as planned are taken into account. 
  • Build in a buffer budget due to the need for additional resources, overtime hours working, revisions, and changes. While some changes might seem minor, they can accumulate, leading to significant increases in both costs and time.
  • Consider reevaluating some aspects and changing your project scope and overview by reducing the complexity and number of assets.

There are 4 criteria for picking the best 2D art outsourcing studio for your projects:

  • Portfolio: A 2D outsourcing company’s expertise is showcased via its 2D art impressive portfolio, and nothing tells better what they are capable of than its past works.
  • Reviews: Read their reviews online and see what their past clients think of them. The most honest on-hand thing you can find in any 2D art studio is its online reviews.
  • Communication: First impressions matter – especially when it comes to communication. If they’re slow to respond or just plain rude from the get-go, imagine how it’ll be once they have your money! Trust your gut and work with people who make you feel good.
  • Time and Budget Compatibility: After all, you might find the best 2D outsourcing studio in the world, but your time schedule and/or money budget do not meet their demands. Find a 2D art studio that meets all the previous characteristics as well as your budget and schedule.

To create awesome 2D art, 6 critical points should be taken into account:

  1. Unique Art Style: A unique 2D art visual style is a powerful tool to be memorable and increase immersion and differentiation.
  2. Color Palette: Choosing the best color palette can make 2D art visually appealing, set the mood, improve clarity, and differentiate it from competitors.
  3. Memorable Characters: Think about your favorite high-quality games; the first thing that comes to mind is their characters, so good art must have unforgettable characters.
  4. Environment Design: After character art, the environment is too important. Memorable and immersive environments of the games can make a lasting impression on the mind.
  5. Visual clarity: Visual clarity, visual appeal, and attention to detail can improve engaging gameplay, aesthetics, realism, and differentiation.
  6. Animation: The excessive and smooth use of animation makes the 2D art more engaging and understandable. Compared to before, now everything (UI, background, and props) is being animated and shaken up.

5 key elements are most crucial when it comes to creating a memorable 3D animation: 

  • Story: Above all else, a compelling narrative is essential. The backbone of successful 3D animation films is the story they are based on. Without a solid narrative, you can’t achieve a strong outcome.
  • Direction: The director’s creative vision ties all aspects together into a cohesive artistic statement. Their guidance on performance, pacing, cinematography, camera movement, and the overall tone is vital in elevating the story.
  • Animation Quality: The animators’ skills are crucial in breathing life into characters and objects. Nuanced movement, acting, lip-syncing, and an understanding of weight and physics increase the audience’s believability.
  • Sound: Voice acting, music, and sound effects work in tandem with the visuals, fully immersing the audience and enhancing the emotional impact.
  • VFX: Seamless integration of visual effects, from particle simulations to compositing with live-action footage, adds an extra layer of magic and spectacle. Imagine Superman’s landing without any impact. 

We create art for various game genres, from RPGs, RTS, and virtual reality to action, simulation, and casual game games.

We also use different software, including Adobe After Effects, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, and Procreate.

Here are 4 key tips for better managing your 2D game art project budget and timeline:

  1. Set Clear Goals and Scope: Establish well-defined goals for the 2D game’s art style, level of detail, and overall visual quality from the outset. Clearly define the scope of work, including the number of characters, environments, props, and other assets required.
  2. Prioritize and Phase Development: Prioritize the most critical art assets for the 2D game’s core experience, and phase the development of less essential assets. This approach allows you to focus resources on the most important elements first and ensures that the 2D game’s minimum viable product is achievable within the allocated budget and timeline.
  3. Optimize Asset Creation Workflow: Streamline the asset creation process by implementing techniques such as modular design, asset reuse, and procedural generation. Modular assets can be recombined and reused across multiple environments, reducing the need for creating unique assets from scratch. Procedural generation can automate the creation of certain assets, like terrain or vegetation, saving time and resources.
  4. Leverage Existing Resources: Explore the use of pre-made assets, stock models, or third-party asset libraries to supplement your in-house art production. While ensuring consistent art style and quality, this approach can help reduce the workload and associated costs.

We provide 2D game art services in the USA, UK, Canada, the Middle East, etc. We understand the importance of seamless collaboration across borders and time zones. Most of our clients are from the USA and here is how we ensure efficient collaboration despite time zones and languages:

  • A dedicated account manager will be assigned to your project, available during flexible hours, including weekends, to facilitate seamless communication and act as an interpreter if needed.
  • All our key team members, including the project manager and those you’ll communicate with, are proficient in English for efficient collaboration.

Here are 10 key strategies to help you benefit the most from a 2D game art partnership:

  1. Clear Vision and Goals: Establish a shared understanding of the game’s artistic vision, style guides, and overall goals from the outset. Clearly define the scope, deliverables, and expectations for each collaborator.
  2. Open Communication: Maintain open lines of communication among all parties involved, including artists, designers, developers, and project managers. Regular check-ins, feedback loops, and conflict resolution processes are essential.
  3. Respect for Roles and Expertise: Recognize and respect the unique skills and expertise that each collaborator brings to the project. Foster an environment of trust and mutual respect, where everyone’s contributions are valued.
  4. Consistent Art Direction: Appoint a lead artist or art director who can provide clear guidelines, oversee the artistic integrity, and ensure visual consistency across all assets and collaborators.
  5. Efficient Workflows and Pipelines: Implement streamlined workflows, file management systems, and production pipelines to facilitate seamless collaboration, asset sharing, and version control.
  6. Flexibility and Adaptability: Be prepared to adapt and make adjustments as the project progresses. Embrace feedback, iterate on ideas, and be open to compromises that serve the greater good of the game.
  7. Time and Resource Management: Establish realistic timelines and allocate resources effectively, considering the workload, skill sets, and availability of each collaborator.
  8. Documentation and Knowledge Sharing: Maintain comprehensive documentation, style guides, and reference materials to ensure consistency and facilitate onboarding for new collaborators.
  9. Collaboration Tools: Leverage appropriate tools and platforms for team communication, asset sharing, task management, and real-time collaboration, such as project management software, version control systems, and cloud storage solutions.
  10. Trust and Respect for Intellectual Property: Clearly define intellectual property rights, ownership, and usage guidelines from the outset to avoid conflicts and misunderstandings.

Here are 5 ways a customer can extract more value from a 2D game art project:

  • Modular Asset Design: Adopt a modular approach to asset creation, where components like meshes, textures, and materials can be easily combined and reused across multiple assets or environments. This approach not only saves time and resources but also promotes visual consistency and allows for greater flexibility in creating variations.
  • Procedural Generation: Explore the use of procedural generation techniques for certain types of assets, such as landscapes, vegetation, or architectural elements. This can automate the creation of complex and varied assets, reducing manual effort while still maintaining artistic control over the overall aesthetic.
  • Level-of-Detail (LOD) Systems: Implement LOD systems that automatically adjust the level of detail of assets based on their distance from the camera or importance in the scene. This optimization technique can significantly improve performance while maintaining visual quality where it matters most.
  • Asset Repurposing and Kitbashing: Explore ways to repurpose or “kitbash” existing assets by combining, modifying, or recoloring them to create new variations. This approach can yield a greater variety of assets while leveraging the work already done, saving time and resources.
  • Asset Monetization: Explore opportunities to monetize your 2D game art assets by offering them for sale on digital marketplaces or asset stores. This can generate additional revenue streams and extend the value of your art assets beyond the initial project.

Here’s what you can expect from our 2D game art studio:

  • Regular Updates: We’ll provide you with regular updates on the progress of your 2D game art for your feedback.
  • Revision Process: We understand revisions are often part of the creative process. Our 2D game art studio offers a structured revision process to ensure your feedback is incorporated effectively.
