Hello and welcome back again this week to our Freelance artist blog, where you can find some of the worlds best great freelance artists for hire. So are you looking for a freelance artist to do 3d design or concept work ? Maybe you are in need of a freelance animation artist or a 3d freelance digital sculptor for a freelance concept job in which you need a character designed for video game or for a toy idea concept ? No matter what you can find and artist capable of that via the resources that we provide you can start by visiting Artist Wanted. But for this weeks article about Freelance custom jewelry design I bring you this because many of the artists here use Zbrush and a few other 3d sculpting programs that make a freelance artistic design of jewelry via 3d printing a simple and and easy task. Freelance digital print artists are pioneers into a new field that is becoming increasingly cheaper and more affordable for the average every day person. When hiring a freelance digital sculptor for the purpose of making a custom piece of jewelry you will be paying that person for his time that is used in making the piece or pieces of jewelry. Firsat off you need to establish the artists rates and as well what your are paying them for , in example is it a personal freelance job or is it for commercial use. Will the freelance artist be making the item for you to use for just you … or personal use, or is it a concept or prototype design to be used for you to sell copies of to the general public. This decision is very important as the artist retains rights of the 3d model and how it is used. This point of commercial is very important because if the artist makes you and original and then throws away the mold so to speak then you have a one of a kind work of art that no one else on the planet possesses except you and the freelance digital 3d sculptor. To start you will need to choose and artist that has the skills to make the product and as well then is able to get it printed in the material that you need it created in. Digital printing is a process that allows the 3d model to be created in gold, silver, platinum and many other alloys and synthetic materials each one having a different price which is decided by the size of the item, and whether it is hollow or solid etc … As well the printing charge is and often always will be separate from the price that the freelance artist charges to design the jewelry or miniature item. The freelance artist is going to base the cost on the time it takes to detail the model, whether it needs to be painted or colored and the size of the item. The size of the item will make a difference because the smaller the 3d model of the jewelry will matter in how much detail you will be able to get in it. Also the item may need to be adjusted by a actual jeweler if it is a ring for example to get the sizing perfectly correct to your finger etc … or maybe you will need a setting added to it or a ring for a pendant added so you will be able to put it on a chain . Currently I have two artists that I can list here that will allow you to get started getting bids on freelance digital printing artists and they are both quite capable of creating your piece of jewelry from a concept sketch or even a photograph of something that you want done. Form is one of the most important parts of creating custom jewelry via digital sculpting and printing. On the other hand if you just are having a miniature printed then you may be able to get a little more detail then a piece of jewelry. I cannot fit all the info that needs to be included right here in this one post though I will continue to write articles about this under a digital printing and freelance digital sculptor category here on this blog.
