Excellent experience, . . . . I went into searching for an illustrator to do what we want, and from past experience, not really thinking I would get exactly what I wanted but close enough, . . . but Cykique's work was exactly what I wanted.

How Gamious started their illustration or graphics journey
Who are you known as?
What industry do you think your business is most related to?
Games & Recreational
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
We make games and publish them. Most of our games are being produced with the Game Train. This is a crowd sourced game development platform, which was succesfully introduced by Gamious. It's only logical that the new Game Train illustration comes from a crowd sourced platform as well!
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
Our website (http://www.gamious.com) is getting a visual overhaul. Most things will stay as they are (the big logo, the Flash game and character, the white blocks below, the black and white background), but with a fresher look. The 'classic wallpaper look' behind the logo will go away, and we also need a new Game Train. This is where you come in!
If we knew exactly what we wanted, we wouldn't be here. A few things that we do know are:
- It must be a train!
- It must not look like our old train, we want a new graphical style.
- It would be nice if the Gamious character is still driving the train, but his visual style may not match. So we're open to something different.
- It must have wagons (functional use here: http://www.gamious.com/gametrain-projects.php)
- The star of the Gamious logo must be somewhere on the train
So please surprise us with a train that has a fresher look. We're not big fans of gaming cliches, so joystick or controller references are not very welcome.
