I have no experience as freelance artist. I am 19 and want to start as freelance career. Could someone please explain the process of becoming a freelance artist and how to get paid to me?freelance artist
Hello there. I suspect you are a spam bot but any free bumps for my thread is good in my books.
For one thing, if you want to go into a freelance career, I suggest you start saving and planning for your future. Ideally, what you do must be able to feed yourself and pay your bills. So start calculating how much you need to earn per month in order to live a decent, bourgeoisie life and then work backwards. That way, you will know how much you should be charging your clients. If you are afraid of charging high because of lack of confidence in your skills, then go and grind more before coming back. If the client cannot afford you, that should be their loss. Not yours. Not all leads will result in something. I've gotten a fair share of leads going cold here but the one lead that I got, I really like.
Always have a contract that states clearly the roles between you and your client. And never start work before been paid. I personally prefer to have at least 50% upfront pay first but that's just me. I think most clients are more comfortable with 20 to 30%.
I hope this advice will be useful for you, maybe-a-spam-bot and to anyone else who is reading this thread. If you are not a spambot, why not join my Facebook page
. We like to fill it with news of our upcoming activities and pretty pictures!
On another note, the team is currently working with za Chief in making his Visual Novel, 'Dreams of the Skies' pretty. He has posted samples of our artworks on this thread
and on his blog
We are rather slow on it, I'm so sorry, but we will get it done soon and I hope everyone will like it. I for one, hope that I can one day read it on my nifty android tablet *hint hint* That should also show you guys that we don't just draw cute girls. We draw bishis too.
This is just a question but Komicer can your group do backgrounds?
And yes. We do background too. I don't have any background work that I can show but yes, we can.
