Guidelines 🖌ī¸

The base asset pack is designed by Daniel Diggle. If you wish to use the pack in your designs, please purchase the pack first. Sunflower Land is currently building on top of this asset pack to create an accessible and consistent design for the Open Source contributors to use.

The community has built on top of this pack adding new characters, resources, seasons, items and much more. All in-game NFTs and rare items have been designed by the community through competitions and voting.

When submitting art for an item, it is imperative that you do not copy another artist's work.

Non Paid Work

You acknowledge that any contributions to Sunflower Land does not have any expectations of payment or rewards. You contribute designs freely for the use of the game without commission or royalties.

Art Contractors

We have multiple outstanding arists that have become contractors for Sunflower Land art. Their purpose is to help guide the community, highlight the best submissions and work on designs.

These positions are paid.


- How do I submit the art work?

To help organize what art work the project needs, what is being voted on and what is accepted please upload your image as an attachment to the Github issue or discussion. You will need to include:

- The raw asset;

- minified version (1px units) and an enlarged preview version;

- A screenshot of the asset in the game;

- Your Polygon address (often used for airdropping assets to the winning designer);

Here is a good example that includes the minified, enlarged and screenshot preview:

- How does the art get accepted?

The team is exploring DAO mechanisms and voting rights for people with certain NFTs. Until we have this automated system, artwork is picked by community consensus in Discord and on the Github Discussions.

- Which programs / apps should I use ?

Any pixel art editor shall work just fine. Aseprite is one of the favorites of our artists for creating new designs and working on animations, We also have some popular and free options like Piskel and Pixilart.
