Email: Inkdogstudios.founder@gmail.com Discord: Aminirus #1824 September, as of this post, has limited slots to hire me. If you hire me for September, you are guaranteed to receive your work within that month, unless otherwise stated or the project is long term and broken into pieces. I already have 2 out of 6 slots full for September so make sure to ask and get a slot today before you have to wait another month!
  2. @Bingo Yup, you can sell things on Artstation. It's under "Marketplace". Most of the stuff there seems to be for 3D related games, but I have seen people selling their Digital drawing knowledge as tutorials and personal help sessions too. I most do game related artwork. These days it's been a lot of items of all kinds, from fantasy to plants to odd things. I do usually also get a few personal commissions of people's characters. When I do have downtime on my jobs, I either work on Wild Howlz, my comic project, and then usually make up a few YCHs to sell. I post frequently to things like twitter and instagram with WIPs and commission opportunities. The point is, is that I'm always doing something to keep my pace. I know what sells the most versus what sells the least but has a higher price, so I know what to focus on each month in order to get the income I need and then some. These days, it's been improving. The more work I do, the more I get to show off to others and thus I tend to get work requests from others. The main thing you can't be afraid is actually showing that work off and telling everyone what you are capable of and where you've worked at before. You not only promote yourself that way, but you also please your client by saying something like, "Look at this awesome work I do for ______ game! Be sure to check it out and hire me today to get your own cool items!" Keep in mind that it is always okay to say that you're looking for work and you need work. Sometimes, if you don't say it, no one knows and thus no one will do anything. You also have to keep reminding people. Sometimes those silent fans of yours are building up their savings and can forget if you don't remind them.
  3. Given from someone who has worked in the art industry for years now during and even after college, art is not always a steady source, but it is not impossible to work solely in art. The main issue that comes with artists is knowing how to reach out their niche and market themselves above others. It's not easy to do and is not something that is taught. When we enter real life then with real bills to pay and real responsibilities, many of us, without this taught skill, fall short about how to get jobs in their desired field and thus have to fall back on things like part-time jobs. A lot said here seems to be a tit or tat on whether art is a good career or not and if the reason you aren't getting enough art related is work is due to lack of school or effort. Many seem to forget that it is not an easy field and we are not taught how to market ourselves towards the clients we'd like to receive. The other issue that tends to be neglected is time management. As an artist working from home, if you don't know how to manage your time then you're not going to make the goals you desire. I've had on and off part-time jobs during my career and I still usually take on some holiday work to build up some extra income, but the rest of the time, I do actually depend on my artwork to get me by. It has not been easy going way of life, but I took the time to try hard and stay focused. I understand my own personal limits and though hard, learn to say no to other jobs to prevent piling up work. It's not easy to keep yourself motivated and functioning all the time. I know there was a time a few months back when I suddenly had no work for almost 3 months, despite me putting things out there and showing off what I had to offer. Due to that, I took the time to reevaluate myself and a few things and find a method to help myself market my work better by understanding the audience I'm trying to target. Everything and anything is a market, but knowing how to do and target it to your benefit takes time and skill, but in the long run helps you in every way. For example, I knew I needed to get a bit more well known if I wanted to expand my viewing audience so I could have more eyes see the work I do and more chances to get hired for work. I joined Artstation.com for this reason as they Challenges, usually about every other month or so, and many people, including those looking to hire, check these out. It really puts your skills to the test sometimes and you can get some real good work out of it if you put forth the effort and time. Plus, on Artstation real people also post freelance jobs and you can also sell your own content on there as well. So if you have a batch of items, you can sell the batch of items there to potential buyers, I've seen people sell tutorials and help sessions. I'm sure there are other options out there, but I'm still learning things myself but mainly, I just advise to not give up. When you're not doing a part time job, keep practicing your artwork and your craft. Look around for different marketable areas, like FB groups that may be in your desired drawing field and so on. Today's world is a lot about social media and that tends to land me the most work. I keep posting things and show what I have to offer and I usually get a wide range of interested audiences.
  4. @Shinobu I'm not exactly asked to draw birds very often, but I assure you I don't have an issue drawing them at all. These are all the examples I could find from this year, and the others would be from prior years. Hope these help anyways since I'm not sure exactly what you're looking for as an example.
  5. Either or would be good @dracula . I don't have an exact replica of your desired style, so I know not everything in the examples I provided would be perfect. The lines are definitely one thing that is different, but mainly wanted to show that I understand that the background and its pieces are drawn in rather than just straight up colored and painted. I'm not moving from DA, just limiting my time there heavily. It's no longer as ... reliable... as it used to be and I can't continue to use their endlessly breaking system, if you know what I mean. It's good in its own way, but no longer is as functional for my purposes as I'd like it to be.
  6. Well, since the lines are already available and it's just greyscale, I could do it for half the cost I normally charge, which thus make all 90 items total around $180 and I can definitely get 60 of those to you by October, if not all of them. I don't currently have any work scheduled for September so you'd be the top priority then. Let me know if that is good with you and we can discuss things further if you'd like. Thank you for you interest @Deloryan!!
  7. Edited material and provided examples of most recent artwork and styles for the work I can do for you! NOTE: August 2018 is quite busy!! If you'd like to order something now, please keep in mind it may take me till September to get to it. Thank you!
  8. I'd be interested in the job for you if you'd like and I can definitely meet your deadline! The cost for it in the style you desire would be around $85 usd Here are some examples of what I've done in a similar style to what you're looking for. I haven't done exactly that style, but I think the styles I have provided, if merged together, will suite what you're looking for:
  9. To me there's not much of a difference in terms of definition, but there could be potential differences in the choice of words and how they sound. Pet Site to me is pretty generic and I probably wouldn't expect much from it other than the basic aspects of a pet based game. When I read Pet World, that intrigues me a bit more as it sounds like they could potentially have lots of other options that go beyond just breeding and collection, and could maybe have more in depth and exciting material. Not everyone would think this way, but it's what comes to my mind when I read the two. I'd be more inclined to check out a game that said Pet World or Virtual World rather than one that just says Pet Site
  10. Wonderful idea and looks like it'll be quite fun to play! Keep up the amazing work
  11. @Martyn For Wild Howlz, do you mind adding on the Discord link as well please: https://discord.gg/h2aEzTh
  12. I've been working on a couple different things recently. The first is a full illustration for a client of a banner like image with their critter working in a forge and the second is a set of items for a different client for their game. Lots of work, but so far thinking it's turning out quite well thus far :3
  13. I'd actually be interested in the job and would love to do artwork. Not sure how much of my artwork you've seen, but if you need to see more examples do let me know and I'll gather them for you right away. You can PM me here or also contact me at the email below. I think my style would be pretty fitting and I'm good at just about anything, from critters (fantasy, cartoony to near realistic), as well as assets and environments. Thank you! inkdogstudios.founder@gmail.com
