surprise, dad. while you were witnessing the pennsylvania state lottery i tried on all your work gloves and they looked very handsome on me

I’m looking to commission someone for a portrait of 2 people (maybe full body or just busts - not totally sure yet) as a birthday gift for my girlfriend, hopefully before June 30th.

Please PM me if interested. I was thinking maybe something watercolor based, but I’m not totally married to the idea and would love to see a portfolio of digital pieces, if that’s anyone’s forte.

Abstract electronic music composer available for weird stuff - I do not compose your typical "boom boom" music (even though I often do for clients, I prefer not to, it's boooooooooring). I've got a nice, full resumé, and so many tracks online that I can't count 'em anymore.

Here's where to start -

For a much broader experience:

Here's how to contact me:

I work well below the Hollywood pricing, I'm fast, friendly, and courteous.

In my spare time, I also animate my own weird stuff: , create video games, and in my past life, I was a graphic designer for 17 years.

Looking for an artist to sketch a tattoo design. Gypsy girl style, in profile, limited color, heavy black line. I want it to fit in with others like that.

I’m looking to get Sherlock Holmes tattooed in that style on my forearm. Classic Sherlock, not Benedict Cumberbatch or Robert Downey jr.

If you’re interested, PM me and I can provide photos of my current tattoo and discuss price.

I'm looking to commission a book cover.

One man and two women on the cover. Sword and sorcery style except the guy will be in modern clothes. Examples of the type of cover, level of quality and titillation I'm looking for are below. Willing to accept something lower quality than the example images, but that's what I'm hoping to get. I don't need any lettering. Would appreciate a quote for a simpler scene like the first image and a more complex one like the second image would be appreciated.

Feel free to PM or email me at brassgenie AT gmail.

I'm looking to commission a fairly basic illustration, basically something like the sun-wearing-sunglasses emote wearing a tutu, which ideally would be conflatable with an accretion disk, for print (accordingly, white background) maybe 2" square so 600-800px. The problem is I need it for something this weekend and didn't come up with this idea until right now.
I'm hoping this can be done for about $50, which I hope represents the actual level of effort necessary rather than being a laughable/insulting lowball. If it is, I apologize, let me know and I'll pull the request. I understand spec work is disallowed and don't expect you to do anything before I agree to pay you specifically.

UPDATE: This has been done! I don't know if you want shouted out in here but thanks very much.

These pipes are cleeeean!!!

I designed a logo for my Sci-Fi improv group earlier this year that we all love but I'm poo poo at styling so it looks kinda bland. It was designed for 3d printing which is why it's super flat but I haven't managed to make it look better without going into full tacky cartoon which is not what I want.

I'm looking for someone to take this logo and polish it up, specifically looking for a polished steel vibe (i.e Star trek badge) that will look well on printed media and screens. I'm hoping this can be done for around 50€ since the logo design is done but am happy to discuss the payment once we've discussed the request, if you're interested shoot me a PM or email ( ashex at chipnick dot com) with a link to your portfolio.

Hopefully this is allowed and I absolutely agree to pay you.

Background: My grandfather served in World War II in the USMC. This year would've been his 100th birthday, and I'd like to have this photo included as part of a birthday present for my mom. I contacted the National Archives and got his military awards, so I'm having a shadowbox made for her.

I'm looking for someone who can create an architectural rendering with lighting and textures of a small apartment. I have architectural plans and will soon produce a Revit or Rhino model which can serve as the basis of the rendering. I essentially need the texturing, the lighting, and whatever flare you can toss in to make it look appealing as an image in a construction work proposal proposing finishes etc. Price is negotiable, would probably need to get done in the next 10-14 days.

Hello, Creature! Do You Despise Goat Hating Fascists? So Do We! Join Us at Paradise Lost!

Hi people!
So, i'm looking to start up a kickstarter for a game supplement i've written for the Fate Core system. Currently, i'm hoping for the kickstarter itself to start up in January.
I have an editor and graphical layout person, but i need an illustrator to do a cover and some illustrations for me. I'm looking at around 5 illustrations at the moment, perhaps more if things go very well.

The game is about heroic monster hunters in a broken world of wild magic, overgrown ruins and giant monsters, who protect their fragile communities by hunting the giant monsters, and turning the bodies into help for their communities and powerful equipment for themselves. Therefore, i'll need illustrations of characters, huge monsters, and possibly broken magical ruins.
The pay will be at whatever your usual rates are, of course.

If any of that sounds interesting to you, you can contact me on discord at magnusth#1555 as well as at my gmail, Magnusth1(at)gmail(dot)com.

I’d like a design that I can put on a headset cap on a bike. Rough idea is a horizontal cow in an orange spacesuit with the old timey clear glass helmet, curved to fit around the top of the circle. In order to fit the curve I think the belly would need to be taken up.

Similar to this:

It would need to follow this template (the top one, not the bar end caps).
That means that the cap would likely need to be orange and the design fairly simple.

Throw me a PM if you’re interested with a quote.

Hi, I have some ideas about a board game I would like to make but I need help with the art direction. Currently my "board" is basically a handwritten spreadsheet. I am not hoping to commission final artwork or anything to use commercially, but I want to make my prototype look a little better by upgrading from spreadsheet to world map.

I would be able to pay for a few hours work, depending on your rates. The final product I want is a high res board image that I can have printed in large format.

Fluffy cat sensory experience

My wife needs a 5-second animation based on her existing logo for her personal business. It's a yoga/wellness thing and she posts instructional/informative videos up on youtube and the animation would be the opener. Would also include music for those 5 seconds. It's not cliched yoga stuff, rather more in line with physical therapy and not involving handstands while downdogging or whatever the gently caress.

I am also terrible at paraphrasing her so it's probably best if you actually talked person to person.

Some intro video examples or whatever you think is appropriate would be helpful. Yell at me if I did a poo poo job of inquiring. I won't be upset

If you're interested please PM me!

Hello! I am interested in commissioning an illustrator for some isometric video game environments concept art/design sketches.

Similar video games with the style I am referring to: Persona 2, Pillars of Eternity, Divinity II, Trials of the Sky.

Design Sketches: Basically drawing rooms/environments/exteriors from an top-down isometric (or similar, I understand Pillars of Eternity/Divinity aren't quite isometric but semi perspective, so a mix or either/or would be fine) perspective, if it's an interior scene then the exteriors can just be solid black, etc. And the environments should have simple sketched content like furnishings, knick-knacks, clothing, food, items and such. Maybe people/pets for scale.

Concept Art: Rough coloured illustrations that are a useful reference for aesthetic feel, lighting, atmosphere, mood, and can be any camera perspective. If you're confident in an anime/manga style for characters then rough/sketched background characters with flat colours would be good to add character (heh) to the scene.

Design Sketches are more what I'd use to blueprint, mockup, or organize my actual levels.
The Concept Art is something to help me determine materials to use, and lighting for setting mood and atmosphere and imagine scripted scenes.

I have PM's, if you don't have pm's uh... Well respond and we'll cross that bridge.

I am a graphic designer and web developer in the Seattle, WA area available for work. For the last six years I was as an active duty U.S. Navy Sailor, where my job duties included graphic design and video storytelling. During this time I established and served as creative director for three weekly print publications, branded an 11 ship carrier strike group, ran a community outreach program that hosted visitors such as Vice President Joseph Biden, created dozens of video products for social media release and served as final release authority for Most of this was accomplished while operating at sea on a naval vessel with almost no internet access, and a load of Sailor duties such as fighting fires and ensuring the ship's seaworthiness. I've also done plenty of freelance work for youtubers, twitch streamers, small businesses and products. I'll brand anything. If you're a two star admiral, or a plumber, or a twitch streamer trying to rake in all those sweet, sweet amazon prime subs, I can make your poo poo look good.

A month ago I became a free man, and I'm trying to get a business off the ground. Not having 14 full hours of work to accomplish every day is killing me. Please for the love of God, hire me to brand your poo poo.

Looking for someone to help create a team logo - we have a rough mockup of the idea, but need it all professional-like. Would involve creating a simplified mascot from some reference photos, a bit of retro font work, and need to result in a vector output. Aiming to keep it around $50 (lemme know if I'm way off) but I'm flexible and more than happy to lay out all details/answer any questions before any work is done.

Paying illustration gig:

Howdy fellow goons! My partners and I are looking for a map artist (cartographer?) to illustrate some game maps for our game Destination Danger which just finished a successful run on Kickstarter. We already have some of the maps done but we hit some stretch goals to have additional maps created.

These maps are going to be on cards that measure 4.75x3.5 inches so they don't have to be very detailed. I will link some examples for reference. We want to work through a 3-step approval process: 1-initial lineart/layout, 2-color pass, 3-final rendering. We are also going to be playtesting these maps so we will need to be a bit of time between the stages for us to work out any gameplay kinks in the design. The maps are based off of the scenarios that our game designer has developed so you would be getting feedback from him as well. We have two scenarios that need maps but each scenario will have two versions of the same map for a total of 4 maps required. We are looking to get these done within the next 30-45 days. We need the artist to be quick to respond to our communications throughout the process.

Please email any interest or questions to my gmail address: trevanwhiting with the subject line "Map Artist: Artist Name Here"

Edit: Also the names of the two scenarios are:

Rumble in the Jungle - Think of the setting of the movie "Congo"
Christmas on Easter Island - Giant stone heads!

One of my roommates and myself are looking to comission a drawing (inked and colored) of a specific thing we encounted at a state fair haunted house:

A “spooky” haunted house setting. A werewolf (possibly some kind of teen wolf, but not THE teen wolf) with his right arm on a railing, a phone in his right hand, looking at his hand. His left hand lazily “swiping” the other direction. His attention is fully on the phone. He is saying “rawr” while he does this. We are on a budget, but will pay whatever your rates are if they fall in our price range for sure. I would like to see samples of previous work before we get serious about doing the piece. Please DM me if drawing this dumb rear end lazy werewolf in a lovely haunted house at a fairgrounds sounds like your thing!

Hi everyone! Hopefully i'm doing this right, but I need some really quick photoshop work done.

I have a graphic designer friend who I pay to do small things for me. I have an app I'm launching, and she beautifully did the store screenshots. The problem is that I sent her screenshots from my phone that show my screen recording software. To be even stupider, I didn't notice it until after she finished all the work. I don't want to bother her with getting her to remove it because I was really stupid and should have looked at the images for 5 seconds when she asked me to look it over before she made them.

I've cropped the problem area here to show you what is going on.

That grey area needs to be turned into that blue gradient background on 6 different images. All I have is the .jpgs she sent me. Is $50 ok for someone to fix that in 6 images? Please PM or post here. Thanks!

EDIT: Someone contacted me, will update thread if they fall through.

EDIT 2: Order filled. Thank you very much to Phylodox.

Hello Goons, I have an idea for an Adult Swim style cartoon and I am looking for someone to create either a storyboard or a series of images that outline the main scenes of a sample episode. I'm estimating about 10 “slides”. I have a pilot episode written up so I can give you a pretty good idea of what I am looking for. I just would like to pay a talented artist to bring the idea to life for a pitch. The show has human characters and I guess should look pretty realistic*, but there are supernatural/ horror/ magical/ fable etc. elements to it. Please message me if you're interested!

*I don't mean photorealism or anything like that, just that the settings are mostly going to be normal sized people in regular places, and not cartoon characters. More like Metalocalypse than Super Jail.

Ive wanted a particular image for a long time and Ill describe it here.

I want a picture in a 1950's 60's-ish catalogue/JR Bob Dobs style of a car trapped in the sky with a confused/angry driver behind the wheel

They are flying over a home for the period, its on a hill with a tree to the left.

Its like a guy in his 1950's car has been screwed up in vortex and is now trapped circling the globe, just lower than clouds tho, getting cranky

It could do with some discussion, Im ok for cash.
