There are many job descriptions, artist wanted ads and job agency placement methods but when it all comes down to it the main part is artist wanted. I have heard the whole spiel about designers are not artists and artists are not designers but it really comes down to the same that both artists and graphic designers both are part of art. You in both involved in the color choices etc … but what comes down to the main issue is that as and artist your style is comparable to what is needed by the consumer in the fashions that are needed in the final outcome. A company that just lists artists needed is not going to necessarily get the right kind of freelance artist they need if they do not say much more then just artists wanted. Do the want a freelance 3d graphic artist, a 3d graphic illustrator style of and artist, or maybe a more commercial designer style of artist a hit and miss term of artist wanted or freelance artist wanted can mean a lot of problems in the long run. A big misconception is that artists all have understandings of many different medias. I do understand both traditional painting such as acrylic on canvas or oil on canvas as well watercolor. But on the other hand some of the older oil painters, masters of acrylic etc may not be very well versed in Photoshop, corel painter, zbrush, maya, after effects etc … We as and art culture currently are at a transition point from the traditional to the digital age. The programmers and app makers are trying to make our programs intuitive but there is so many options jammed in to our gui and other pallets and sub pallet’s you can study techniques for literally years on end right now just mastering, polishing and honing your craft and expertise …. in all honesty the world of art is bloody brilliant and the outcomes potentially without exaggeration limitless and boundless to the point where anything and everything is possible with the aid of simulations and high end physics all pre-calculated and waiting for multiple outcomes due to options from multiple gravities to multiple AI or artificial intelligence used in the stimuli of the simulations. When does this become art and where is it and artist needed would be that this kind of information would be used in art ? Well in Video games, in Hollywood, in Science experiments using the art programs that we use when creating our art. My point here is that some of the programs and the simulations that they can run are in fact using science and math … also the architecture and design functions from the 3d to the cad programs are well integrated at this point.
So Artists Wanted, artist needed or wanted artist for hire is not the most effective way to hire artists and freelance designers. First off you need to come up with the skill sets of the artists or freelance art directors that you want to hire. Again this is also important with art directors for freelance projects that you are working on, because a traditional artist may not have enough understanding of the programs available the time and use principles and the best ways to delegate all of the aspects of the art jobs. It used to be that a matte painter may paint a large canvas for a background and at this point it would be a combination of very little if any painting on a canvas other then a concept sketch the rest would be done all on a digital 3d set or atleast on a digital canvas inside of a compositing application or software such as Adobe photoshop, Mari by the foundry, after effects, a Maya 3d scene etc …. as well it could even be a interactive canvas such as unity engine 3.5 or unreal development engine … it could even be sim in the second life virtual world it really mainly depends on what is needed and what you would like to do and the parameters of the project. Just remember artist wanted or freelance artist wanted is really not enough information to find the right person for the job. You want to tell us more information such as these examples 1. you are looking to have a small video clip animation of a specific creature that has not been created yet – then at the least you need a modeler or freelance digital sculptor and a freelance animator that will rig your model or sculpt. So freelance digital modeler or sculpting artist and a freelance rigging and animation artist. 2. you want some 3d buildings for a video game made from drawings that you have then you want a freelance environment artist and maybe even a freelance texture artist. 3 you want a water simulation for a commercial then you want a freelance freelance vfx artist that maybe specializes in particles each one of these specializes in different types of programs. #4 you want a Marquette of a super hero miniature for a launch of a video game well again you need someone that specializes digital sculpting or freelance digital modeler. I could continue here but I think you can understand what I am talking about.
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.
So here we are back to where can I find a freelance digital sculptor for the purpose of designing custom jewelry in Gold, Silver, platinum or even bronze … so I can give you links to two artists that I know of that are both great digital sculptors and love the work and creativity.
