Revolutionizing Game Development: The Power of Art Outsourcing

In the dynamic world of game development, striking a balance between creativity and cost is paramount. One innovative solution that has emerged as a game-changer is art outsourcing—a strategy that can significantly streamline budgets and operational logistics.

Cost-Effective Creativity

Art outsourcing stands out as a potent tool to reduce expenses without compromising on quality. By turning to specialized studios for art production, game developers can transform fixed costs into variable ones. The benefits are twofold: not only do developers save on the costs associated with maintaining a large in-house art team, but they also circumvent the hefty expenses tied to talent acquisition and training.

Streamlining Development through Art Outsourcing

The concept of a lean team is not just a trend; it's a strategic approach to development. Art outsourcing leverages the expertise of seasoned artists from around the globe, ensuring that your project has access to top-tier talent without the full-time price tag. This method offers flexibility and scalability to studios of all sizes, allowing them to adjust to project demands in real-time without the burden of hiring or layoffs.

Sharing your Workflow with the Studio

It is imperative that when hiring a third party outsourcing studio, that you share with their producers and art directors everything they need to know in order for them to be able to create the designs with as little input from you as possible. After all, you don't want to outsource to earn time yet have to spend several hours a day rejecting and giving basic feedback do deliverables. Ideally, this workflow will be executed perfectly by both teams in order to avoid unnecessary reworks.

Be Sure to Receive Constant Financial Reports

It can be a horrible experience to receive random huge invoices. Make sure that the charging system is correctly agreed upon before starting the actual work. Ask for a near realtime or at least weekly updated report regarding how much is being charged.

Always Rember to Use a Well Written Contract

A good team will always remember to have a solid contract in place, this can avoid headaches later on as well as making sure that both sides know the rules very clearly. The contract should clearly state the rates, payment system, available hours, cancelation conditions, automatic renovation time frame, NDA and more.

A Testament to Success: Dungeon Defenders Saga

Our journey with 'Dungeon Defenders 2' and 'Dungeon Defenders Awakened' stands as a testament to the efficacy of art outsourcing. As an experienced art outsourcing studio, we crafted concept art and 3D models for characters, skins, pets, and towers, seamlessly integrating with the games’ aesthetic developed in Unreal Engine 3 and 4. Our contributions were not only cost-effective but also pivotal in bringing the vibrant worlds of these games to life.
