I'm a programmer and an artist who is working on an RPG for eventual release on Steam and XBL. The project is too much work for me to do on my own, so I'm looking for a pixel artist who kicks ass to help me get the art done.

So I'm looking for a pixel artist who can take concepts like the above, plus other reference shots and background information, and create rich and gorgeous pixel art.
I know what pixel art costs, and I'll pay competitive rates based on experience and portfolio--I'm looking to be impressed!
