This is the Video Reviews of my latest commissioner.
We believe we have found the ideal illustrator for our project. Thank you, everyone, for your responses. I love my job when it allows me to spend quite some time looking at so much creative material! Thank you so much for your interest!
hey there! Im very interested and I think my style fits perfectly with what you want. I am very professional and can get your illustrations done in a timely fashion. Heres a link to my comic book art page on facebook, its got some of my more recent pieces. www.facebook.com/groups/384665178265991/photos/
Wow, I am totally in awe of your art, each of you is so good in their own way. Thank you for your replies, just studying various galleries and working on a shortlist, you´ll hear from me today. I intend to get the whole project done as quickly as possible!
Thank you also for your words of warning, friendlyhand and lucasoftheart - I have no intention of not paying anything or of letting anyone do tests or the whole project for free OR claiming their work as mine (everyone knows I can´t draw). I don´t know where in my post you thought you could read those particular pieces of information and why you felt you had to publicly share something you´ve made up as far as my job offer is concerned. No doubt every freelancer has had his or her share of past bad experience, I concede. I know I´ve had my share! I expect to be able to judge from an artist´s portfolio whether he or she can do the job, and if I think he or she can do it, then I´ll book them.
Sorry about the e-mail mess-up. As is apparent, whoever wanted to get in touch with me managed to do so. firstname.lastname@example.org is the correct one. And anyone who thinks I´m not legit because I just signed on - feel free to browse my website or google my name. I´m a writer, journalist and musician. I just can´t paint or draw.
ElkeGalvin, You will attract a more skilled and professional group of artists if you offer payment for your test image.
also you provided two different email addresses: email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org
Free test images are sometimes a warning that the client will disappear as soon as the free art is delivered. Free test images are sometimes an indication that the "client" is passing off your work as their own work to a third person. Paid test images are an indication that the client is serious about the project and willing to pay.
Artists should use caution when dealing with a client who has a brand new account. If a client just joined, then they need to be a little bit flexible and willing to establish some credibility in another way, for example a down payment before work begins.
email@example.com is correct. Thank you. Where you got the info about the free test images I am supposedly expecting is beyond me. This is a job offer, and you are scaring people off based on - what? Your bad past experiences? An e-mail typo? My being new here? Of course I am brand new, as I´ve signed on in order to find an artist for my project. I never said anything about not paying for a test image, but I´d rather discuss the details of the project with the artists to whom the information will be relevant.
I hate it when people think that such a thing is necessary when we have portfolios that show our skills. But I hate it even more whenever they don't come right out and say it. I spent a good week going back and forth with someone over the details of a promising looking job and right before they wanted to hire me they decided to ask for a test. It sucks because I would never have bothered to contact them if I had known that and I wasted all of that time negotiating work I had to turn down in the end. Thanks for the heads up on this one.
Yeah, I hear you. I used to do sample submissions when asked, but more recently I stopped doing them unless I get paid for the time it takes to do the sample. Seriously, what is the point of a portfolio if you then have to do work that you might not get paid for? The best potential employers are the ones who are willing to pay for samples. I once did a sample for a graphic novel and the employers paid me $100 to do it. Black and white. I didn't get the job, but I wasn't at all irritated because I KNEW that they respected my time and efforts as an illustrator.
Exactly. I don't mind doing such work, so long as it's in the context it would be should I be hired. Paid. Those that are willing to pay for your time are really the best people to work for, and are worth the effort, even if the deal doesn't end up working out. That is how the professional world works.
I sent you an email from my firstname.lastname@example.org address. Please browse my portfolio at dave-holland-art.com and let me know how to earn your business. I am a professional freelance artist and I would like to add you to my list of happy customers. Kind regards,
