Hello again my name is Ken Sweckard and I started this blog to help others and as well to find more freelance art jobs. I have also started a freelance artists group and page on Facebook which at this point many artists have joined and have participated. You can first off find the group on Facebook under the search of Freelance artists or the page freelance artists groups or just follow the links here that I provide for you.
these are the freelance art groups and pages with many artists that do freelance in many different areas from film to video games and animation and vfx to web design and digital graphics. Besides this there are many other ways to find freelance art jobs and getting info on finding freelance artists. To start there are freelance art job sites that can help you find freelance artists, painters, freelance designers and more. But there are many things to consider when hiring freelance artists and designers as well there are freelance websites where you can browse artists portfolios and get and idea of the specific style the artists specialize in. As well if you are a free lance artist looking to get noticed a portfolio of your best works will give you a solid representation so clients looking at your work knows what they can expect from you if they decide to retain or commission you for a freelance art job.
You can find so many different styles of artists and designers and as well for the artist find so many different freelance art websites at this point in the online revolution that sometimes it is not east to know where to start. First off you need to decide what kind of artist you are looking for or what kind of freelance art job you are looking for. From there first Google can be your friend in finding what you are looking for, but at times there are so many freelance type of listings that finding something that is relevant may not be as easy as it seems. So to start I am going to give you a little boost here, and that being said, realize this may not be the only places that you should look. As well some freelance websites may have more freelancers from your country or less, it all depends on where you are from and the freelance art or artist business that you are looking for. For Americans just as and example you will probably find the higher paying jobs on more U.S. based artists freelance sites, while other countries may find more freelance artist based sites from a European based freelance art community site. So that being said I will list a few of the best freelance based directories that I know of, as well they all may charge a fee but they do have intro based memberships that are free you just get less options for signing up, displaying your portfolio etc … Ohh and one last thing before I list these, on of the main reasons for using a freelance art directory is that there are a few options that make sure you will get paid, be sure to follow these rules with milestones etc… because if you do not you actually may be breaking the freelance sites rules and as well if you are not careful you could end up not getting paid for your work.
