Challenging Illustrators - Is it possible?

Dear all,

If I understand properly, I am a buyer here.

I have a stupid question:
I have a boardgame project and currently I am looking for the illustrator (pixel-Art needed)
The project will be kickstarted within a year. (I am working for this now.)

To find the “chosen one”, an before to deal with him for the project.
I want to “challenge” the illustrator to proceed to 2 or 3 sample to see if it’s suitable for me.
Is it something possible?
Is it something “normal” or bad?
Are there some rules for this?
As you can see I am a noob for this. 🙂

For the future, when the “chosen one” will be find here or there, I will ask for some images (depending of my wallet and the price). It will not be the full project first.
But when it will be founded (Or before), she/he will have all illustrations. 🙂

Thanks a lot for your help.

It depends. I generally don’t do free samples - work is work and it must be paid.

With that said, if there’s a really large project, I may do a sample if it’s a quick thing. Now, if the budget is small, it makes no sense to do any samples at all.

Example:

Project A is to make 100 images, budget is $10k. Sure, I’ll do 1 or 2 images for free (watermarked) to try to get it.
Project B is to make 10 images, budget is $50. No way I’m going to be spending my time doing any free samples for that.

Thanks for the feedback. 🙂
If I chanllenge and get 50 sample at 10$ each it will blow up my wallet. 😃

I guess I will go through all the pixel art Gigs to find the “look” that I want to have a pay for 1 image “to see”.

Again thanks for the feedback.
I really do not want to do things wrong. 🙂

Isn’t pixel art graphics going to be a bit blocky for a board game?
