At a point in time when mankind has developed a technology that allows him to travel through the galaxy in the blink of an eye, and inhabits hundreds of new solar systems, he still asks the burning question that has plagued him since he first looked up at the stars and wondered, “Is there other intelligent life out there?” A new discovery will turn man’s theories about God and the universe on its head, while an interstellar war between two vast alien empires threatens to upset the balance of the entire galaxy.
Hello, my name is Gordon Gavin. I and a small group of others are working on the conception of a completely original sci-fi universe with the hopes of converting our efforts into a game format. We are beginning by testing our ideas in game modding.
Some background info on the project:
“FTL” is a Battlefield 2 total conversion modification that pits the player in an epic war across the galaxy as one of four space faring species battling throughout the dark abyss of space as well as on extraordinary alien worlds. "FTL” began as an idea for a total conversion mod for Battlefield 1942. Since then, it has grown and become its own entity, spawning its own text RPG, various fiction, and several minor species. This universe revolves around the conflicts between 4 main species: the Raath, the Nemesis, the Tachor, and humans.
I am looking for artists who can assist our team in creating character designs, environments, vehicles and weapons. Each species has a team leader that is the guiding force behind the visual aesthetic, but we are always willing to assimilate new ideas into the project.
In addition, we are also looking for web artists who can help us build our website. If you have skills in this area and would like to contribute please read on.

or to post on our forums: Space Combat Forum
Any artist who wishes to apply must submit a portfolio of relevant work.
Our team is very supportive of each other and we are looking for other individuals who can be as committed to the success of this project as we are. Unfortunately, this is not a paying position as we are all poor college students or young professionals like you! This is an excellent opportunity for artists who seek to expand their portfolio in relation to concept art as well as an opportunity for learning and sharing knowledge.
I look forward to reviewing your portfolios!
Thank you for your time.
