Looking for an Artist... Full Credits but no pay :(

Hello all,
I am trying to create a maze-like game that is very dark; I am not an artist myself although I can get by for most of the artwork. The main menu though is proving to be extra difficult. I am trying to make a simple creepy cave, but my artwork is obviously "noobish". Thus, I am trying to find an artist to make the picture.

The catch: I don't have a lot of money to put forward for the picture. I am creating this game to make a message, and any revenue goes to charity. I am fully willing to give front-page credit to the artist though, as well as a link back to their site if desired. I realize that your time is valuable... and that I probably can't afford it  :-\ . Still, I figured there's no harm in asking.

Below you can find what I have done so far. While I like the grass, the cave needs serious work to make it better. At least it gives you an idea as to what I am looking for though.

Thanks for your consideration & taking the time to read this :)

Don't look to me but rather to the One who is the reason for what I do. :)

If you need help, send me a PM. Even if I haven't been on in the forums in ages, I still receive those messages via email notifications. You can also reply to any of my forum posts, regardless of the age (especially if I created it), and I will likely reply.

Alright. Thanks for trying.

By the way, I'm not just looking for one-time (although that is fine too). I'm hoping to eventually find an artist to work with long-term if anyone is interested. ;) (I know you all don't really know me well... but I'm actually a Stencyl vet back from 1.1 who has been doing minor works for others just now doing things in my own name.)

OK well here what i got. Hope its what you are looking for. I don't know if you wanted to keep the same blur style or color. If you do i can change the color and put a blur filter on it or something. If you don't want to use it, it cool. But if you do all i ask is for Credits. Sorry my English is not the best.   

Feel free to crop it and whatever.

Thank you both for the pictures :). IRL is crazy busy right now (worked 14 hours yesterday), but I will try to give more detailed feedback soon.

luekhue: Thank you for your rendition. I like your style. I wish that both yours and cucumkid's went well together but the styles are very different. I liked the simplicity of yours but the realism of his.

cucumkid: Thank you for the rendition (and for the adjustment). The bottom almost looks like a river of blood... but I may actually be able to play off of that. ;)
