Hello there. I am looking for someone to make me a background
for one of my upcoming projects. I'm looking for someone talented, who has some good artistic experience.
I need a Japanese village scene with mountains at the back, a waterway, some tree's, old japanese buildings and temple, something similar to this http://img06.deviantart.net/7ccb/i/2013/106/2/2/japan_village_by_b_zuleta-d4vzl9x.jpg
; I would also like the art to be done digitally.
I am very sorry but unfortunately I have no way of paying:unhappy:, so if you could possibly do it for free it would be very appreciated.
But I assure that I'll give you credit for your work and even owe you one.
If your interested post a comment or please contact: [email protected]

I have an idea. I am sure that it would make me money. But I lack the effort to get it done so if you could send me money, I will get rich with out working for it. I thank you all ahead of time.

Oh come on, you guys could've been at least a little more civilized about it.
Its not that I dont want to pay, but I literally cant pay. Paypal isnt available in my country (Ghana)
and I really dont know what else to do, just dont make fun of me like that, please!!

I thought we were very civil. Do you have any idea how many newbies have come on here and asked for free work with their first post? I don't know what other way to make fun of it.

Well whatever, I'll just look somewhere else. But if I were to pay you what would be your lowest bid?

hiring a professional digital artist prices will range from £8 (41.06 Cedi) to £60 (307.97 Cedi) an hr.
depending on what your going to be using it for dictates how much detail you'll require, the more detail the more it will cost you whats it for?
(I'd charge £120hr - 615.94 Cedi )

heard that before. you might find hobbyist who deliver decent quality quite cheap. you want something so you have to give something. in your post you gave absolutely nothing. just the general i have a project and i want stuff message. you went into detail about what you want but not what you could manage to trade for it or even what the project is about. not a single thing. what would you do when you were an artist and read such a message. would you be interested in giving your time to a random stranger from the internet for nothing but chat messages?

what is it you do? are you a programmer? how old are you? what have you done before? maybe its smart to give such information. anyway i doubt you will get what you want over here so w/e. go to facebook and join level up group and try to find some guy there or just go to shutterstock or some picture seller. real cheap pictures available there.

also dont give me the civilized thing. no one insulted you but you did insult every artist over here. i know you have a disadvantage since people from ghana dont earn alot of dollars per month so it should be mandatory for you to find another way to show your gratitude like offering your skills in exchange.

best of luck and /cheers 2 u

I am an animator of 16 years of age. I've been animating for 2 years now so im not the best but I'd call myself a mid intermediate. I needed the background for a collaboration I'm doing on a website called hyunsdojo.com.
I'm really sorry for offending all you guys, I'm just really desperate. I colud offer my skills as an animator/flash game programmer and I also have some experience HTML and Javascript programming.

I dont have anything else I can really offer, but if any of you are interested I'm willing to do any task or skill in exchage. Again, so sorry I'll check other sites and forums to see what I can find. :plain:

this post is a much better approach. would love to see some of your animations. have you tried deviantart.com? personally i could be persuaded to do stuff if you could offer mobile programming but i believe youd need to know java not js for it... if you absolutely find nothing and my skill level is good enough for your project - feel free to pm me.

Thank you, I've learned some Java ME for mobile earlier this year, but if you need my help I can continue and assist you in whatever program you need.

The problem with this industry is no one respects the work that is involved. As artists we expect to be paid for our time, skill, and materials. Never ask for free work. You will not get a good response. The better approach is to offer your own skills in trade with an equal value of work in return. Even then you have the responsibility of due diligence to find others in your network that are willing to work with you. i.e. art school classmates, other independent artists in your niche. Artists already have to protect themselves from clients. Let´s have a more respect for each other.
