Hello, i am interested in the job offered. will like to introduce myself , i am a professional digital artist , I am currently working as fulltime freelance digital artist here as i have just lost my job. i hope i can earn some little amount from here till i get a new job. please support me by commission me. thank you.
I am holding a promotion of 3 artwork and you will get a free one on any of the catalog.
The following is the example of work i have done latest.
This is the Video Reviews of my latest commissioner.
Portfolios are to determine who to select, not free sketches. If you don't like what you see in a portfolio, don't hire an artist. If you do, then you invest in getting what you want out of that artist.
Imagine if we had to do a free sketch for every client - we'd lose thousands of dollars' worth of time doing that when they could simply look at what we've already done.
Aside from the fact that your 50$ price is low for something you're potentially going to make money off of and the typical price for a book cover is 250$+, asking for a free sketch on top of that price is pretty nuts. :/
Do you ask a hooker for a free "test run" before you hire her for sex? Or do you pick her based on how she looks?
Nobodyīs upset. But itīs true that for a person that gets the job, there can be from 10 to 100 who donīt. What makes from 10 to 100 useless works, a big loss of time. I donīt see the point of making a sketch if you arenīt considering me, nor even know my work. That really sounds like a contest. You filled the position... well both the artist and you were lucky, but this is not how it uses to be.
I had a few like this too I would rather work with the one who hires me based on my skill and I can do the work and show results, I have been noticing more and more of them are asking for free spec work, the last guy and I ask gave him a contract to sign and instead he altered it, to make it look like he signed it while my signature was gone and then asked for the work in progress with out a down payment, even though I ever gave him an invoice I mentioned he must respect the agreement and sign his copy to return to me which he failed to do.
It's because they keep coming back with new accounts each time. You can see how he argues which shows he's not new to deviantart at all. lol What I mean imagine joining the website still all fresh and new and start fighting people because they're trying to point out certain things how the website works. Any sane person would think about it which means this guy ain't new.
That is why artists have portfolios. You look at it, and go "does this person fit what I'm looking for?" and then you either hire or not hire the person. Then you should sign a contract, which is legally binding for BOTH parties. If you don't want to make a contract you can discuss things among eachother and iterate the sketch until you have something that works for you. You or your artist can also go separate ways and no harm is done. You can set up a thread again. Money wise either half to start and half upon completion or something like that.
It's a gig, you're a client and neither party are scary inhuman beasts.
