When you make the second entry and the debits and credits balance, and you blow them to hell.

I'm trying to find artists for a couple of different projects, one is a cover of a novel. I've looked at fiverr and online cover farms, though I'd prefer a goon artist even if it costs a bit more.

Basically the first one is a sword and sorcery book, and I'd like a picture of a woman in a swampish kind of background and a snake peeking around one of the corners. However, the woman is in real armor (i.e. not boob armor), with her hair cut short to hide that she's a woman, so while I'd like it to be a callback to Robert Howard and pulpy covers like Robert Howard and Fritz Leiber, it can't have that motif of "vulnerable white woman being threatened".
I'd need a very tight turn around on this piece, or at least a draft very quickly. If that goes well I'll write more stories starring her so there'll be more covers.

The other project is more of an ongoing thing, I'm looking for a series of perspective drawings on things drawn to accompany short travel log pieces on my website. This travel log takes place in a secondary fictional world, so some of them will be fantastic flora and fauna, and others may be extremely prosaic or just pictures of a normalish medieval village or something like that.

If you're interested in either or both projects please pm me or email me so we can talk about timelines and pay.

Hey all - I am looking for a graphic designer with some modest illustration skills to help me out with overflow work and some project development. Primarily this will be doing layout and design work on stuff like Whitepapers, Executive Reports, Case Studies etc. The 'illustration' competency is really in respect to infographic type content, not specifically illustrations.

This is corporate work so requires per project estimates, we pay 50% deposits and have pretty good budgets withing reason. I would need to see a few samples of work and we need source files so you'd have to be ok with that. If this sounds interesting to you PM me or email me at razorfield (at) and I can provide more specifics.

One of my bffs is getting married in a few months, and I'm looking to get him a not-very-serious gift to go along with a separate, relatively serious gift. What I would like is an original ink drawing of his cat in the style of Tom of Finland, combining something like this:

with this:

The artwork doesn't have to be huge, but it is important that the quality be high and that it be made to last (acid-free paper or whatever...I'm ignorant as hell about this stuff, sorry). I really want something that looks like someone just discovered a long-lost Tom of Finland original that just happens to have a cat's head.

Please PM me to discuss.

I'm looking for a Maya freelancer to convert an nParticle animation into a GLTF/GLB. May lead to a few more equally simple animations in future, all currently rendered with Arnold to 4K videos. Animation is basically a group of falling basketballs,

I've tried exporting but stuck with either a bug in Maya 2020 export that breaks GLTF Exporter, or using Instancer python tools that ignore rotation.

Please PM for anything further, include comp options, or email smccoy at

edit: I found a 2011 script to create instances as geometry that actually works, just remaining is fixing the textures outside of Maya. I only tested with Babylon.js sandbox and the output was ugly, but that is hopefully related to timing on their pre-release.

update: a colleague tried several online freelance hires and the big issue appears to be the PBR textures. I perused some 3d asset shops and found some interesting potential hires due to high quality PBR GLTF assets on show:

Hiya folks

I've been looking for a graphic designer who works with typography for a logo. I am an aspiring (and pretty terrible right now) musician but also I have a day job so I'm not broke. I put together a rough idea of what I'm looking for but I'm no designer, so I'd like to hire someone to help me with that.

Thanks so much!

Hey, anyone have the equipment and knowhow to make some good product shots? I made a board game, but all I had was a SLR camera and some living room lights - the shots I took came out OKish, but I really want someone with a professional lightbox setup and the knowhow to do some proper pictures. I want to get pics of the outer box and contents with good lighting and the backgrounds masked away. Shoot me a PM with examples of some of the work you've done and what kind of rate you're looking for. (Or email if you don't have PMs)

I don't need anything super fancy, just the standard pictures you'd expect; front of box, rear of box, maybe a couple other standard outer views like a 3/4 angle shot of the front, and a couple pictures of the contents - I want at least one image of a squareish layout of the internals, but beyond that you can decide what layouts to use of the internals since you have the experience and artistic knack.

You can get an idea of the product and just a quick square layout with the shots I took at

My father-in-law is a retired professor and old-school socialist who is finally publishing his book about the dysfunctions of the American education system. I am handling the logistics for publishing and we need an artist to produce 10+ original single-panel political cartoon-style illustrations to accompany different sections of the book. We are preferably seeking someone who has the time/capability of completing this project as a whole, rather than parceling it out to multiple artists. The book delves deeply into American politics and has a streak of biting humor throughout. We are more concerned with hiring an artist who is a good fit for his writing rather than looking for a particular art style.

If you are interested please send a samples of previous work to knightofsloth at gmail dot com. Specifically, we are interested in seeing caricatures of political figures, comics/cartoons of a political nature, or anything you think might bring a smile to the face of a bitter old socialist. Funding has already been set aside for this project and we are eager to move forward as soon as possible.

I'm looking for a pixel artist for some characters and animations.

Current page:

The pixel art I require should be in the popular Time Fantasy style: I have a color palette as well if needed.

I have already commissioned the creator of that style for many different assets, and I just need someone to do some additional work.
I will go into more detail of what kind of sprites I need when I'm contacted. I can provide examples of sprite sheets I have already received as well.

Here's a short video of what the battles look like: (will have original BGM/SFX later)

Compensation: I will pay a flat rate, commission-style, for each sprite sheet, mainly because I only work on this every now and then so I'll probably only hit you up once a month or so for a few sprite sheets.

Hello Art Goons!

I've got a somewhat large project I'm working on and wanted to post here to get some feedback and find some talent.

I've been interested in children's books since, well, forever. I have probably 10 manuscripts I've been working on for years but have always been afraid to push forward. A couple years ago, my mother-in-law bought this book for our daughter:

She loves it! I sort of got inspired to write short stories about leftist and revolutionary heroes. I've pounded out 20 of them so far and would like to try to get to 50. The first problem is with art. The rebel girl books are so great because the artwork is different for each story and the style is usually well matched with the background and time period for each character.

I really want to get this book published more than anything, and I'm not looking to maximize earnings or anything like that. I think I'd like to make two or three sample stories, complete with art, put it up on kickstarter and see if I can get enough interest to fund the rest of the artwork.

So I have a question about pricing. I want to make a full color 6"x9" hardcover book in a similar style to the aforementioned series. I was thinking about $100 per drawing (not contest style, but based on an artist's portfolio) and a 1% royalty on gross profits. That would leave 50% total for art and 50% for writing. Is this a reasonable plan? How shall I go about finding artists for the first few demo pages?

Thanks in advance for the input, sweet goons

Dick will make you slap somebody!

I don't know if this is the place for it, or if this is even a realistic ask, but I was hoping to hire a copywriter for some small work here and there. I am a website/software developer, and need someone to write text for the websites I build. For the current work I have, I don't really care about SEO or any of that kind of stuff. I basically have mock ups with nonsense text that show how many words I want for each section and your job is to replace the nonsense words with relevent copywritten text. For example: you know how websites will have a row of icons with 1 word next to them with a paragraph underneath them? You'll come up with that one word and paragraph of text. When I've researched relevant job postings, people most charge per word but if you'd like to charge a flat rate we can do that as well. If you can write simple ads for mobile app ads that'd be cool too. Just text that goes over banners and stuff like that. We can discuss what you are comfortable doing in greater detail in PMs.

Please PM me or post in thread with any questions, thanks!

My girlfriend works as a mental health counselor and has asked me to draw something for her but it is definitely beyond the scope of my artistic skills. She would like a picture of people sitting around a dining room table. There's a horse standing on the table. The people are ignoring the horse. I'm sure this is a metaphor for her patients ignoring the elephant in the room wrt to issues, but I didn't press for details about the context in the groups she runs.

This doesn't need to be fancy since I was going to whip something simple up in Procreate on my iPad and text her the png export anyway. I'm 100% willing to pay a fair price for this drawing. I don't really expect anything more complicated than a day's work. Hit me up via PM or email: poemdexter at gmail. Thanks in advance for the save goons!

Is this an appropriate place to look for fantasy D&D party commissions? I'd like something to commemorate the last year of a long-running campaign where we've all been forced to play remotely.

What I'm looking for is portraits/busts of four characters plus a GM as if they're sitting on a Zoom call. Everyone is distracted by something like a cat, baby, food, etc. The Zoom framing is key to the piece, so in addition to the characters themselves I want some sort of videoconferencing UI, whether it's ripped off from a specific application or something original I don't care. Maybe some individual background details behind the characters if you want, but I don't have specific things in mind for that.

I can provide written descriptions of all the characters as well as previously commissioned art as a reference. I'm willing to pay appropriately for all these extra flourishes on top of a standard party portrait.

Contact me via PM or reply with your own preferred method. Thanks!

Terms (initial design, revisions, etc) will be mutually agreed to and a contract signed before any work is done.

My parentís beloved doggo passed away recently, and Iíve been considering getting a piece done to commemorate his passing. Iím not really sure where else on the forums to ask, but figured this was a good place to start. I know there are a billion resources on Etsy and Reddit for this kind of thing, but Iíd rather give a fellow goon cash before I go there.

For reference, hereís the good doggo in question. His name is Zero.

PM me with links to your work, where else I should ask, or links to someone you think would do this good doggo honorably.
