  1. Howdy again. It's been 8-9 months since my departure from this site, and as I need some work done again, I wanted to share with you a little something that came up during my recent venture on this site. I'm currently trying to get some animation work done for my channel for a fun little gimmick that I want to add. Since my previous artists of choice primarily focus on emotes and logos, they were unfortunately not up to the task. So I decided to look for new artists via a service request to get the job done. Which resulted in me getting like 30 offers from random people that I had no experience with. Everyone had their neat little ideas, and half of them did not even read the requirements, but that's beside the point. Now, I try to be as descriptive as I can in my requests (quite often the 2500 limit is not enough), and occasionally an artist's vision/language barrier/whatever gets in the way. But... sometimes you just find that little golden star among all the rubble. And then, when it clicks and you see your vision personified in front of you on-screen... it's like a little magical moment. This is sorta what happened to me yesterday after I requested some rough sketches from some of the artists that made me an offer. I asked both parties to please make a very rough sketch of what they thought I wanted my character to look like, with a focus on cartoonish, based on my descriptions and drawings. Like, 5 minutes of work, so that I could get an idea of what the artist's style was and whether it matched my personal idea. What I got was more than what I expected and asked for, but it pretty much hits the nail on the head on why it's of utter importance to offer or request (free) a sketch. Because, while the first artist assured me they could get the work done quickly and I looked at their work and their style was good, the sketch they showed me was not remotely what I had in mind. Though I think that maybe my drawings might have added to that, but that's why I try to be very descriptive in the actual request and always provide references. To help you understand, let me show you some pictures to go along with this story. First, let me quote parts of my description and show you my drawings I made prior to all that. These are the drawings I made. Didn't spend too much time on them as it would be pointless because I'm no artist. I just wanted to have some ideas on paper. And here's an excerpt of the request, describing the character: This is the helmet for reference, and Disney's "Marvin the Martian" for comparison. This will be important later. (What I'm about to say should by no means be taken as me trying to insult or diminish their work, but I tend to speak freely. It's splendid work regardless.) The first artist apparently ignored my descriptions both in the request and messages prior to the sketch and simply used my drawings and pictures as references. While it is a nice drawing, it's by no means what I requested. I did not ask for shoes and the body was too bulky, and it all looked kinda... off. It just didn't click with me at all. BUT... it highlights the fact why sketches are vital. I did the same thing with all the artists I hired for my emotes/logos. They were always happy to provide a free sample. However, this case was seemingly a matter of an artist getting in the way of themselves in the form of going strictly off a client's references, too afraid to do their own thing. Which I understand plays an important role in business, but you can always make 2 sketches if need be; 1 strictly based on client's ideas, and 1 based on your own interpretation. However, I hope I'm not too much to blame here as I did tell them to draw the character in their own style and in a way what they thought I wanted it to look like. Lovely work, but quite far off the mark of what I was going for. Now, let's get to the creamy part of this story and my "magical moment". I later got another offer by an artist that had me intrigued after visiting their profile and checking out their work. A little bummed out from before, I was starting to doubt whether I put too little money on the table (I offered $100 or more, depending on work and quality) and didn't exactly have much hope in getting what I wanted. But I messaged them anyway and asked for a free sample. They were kind enough to offer such, but since it was late at night, I told them I'd check out the sketch in the morning and wished them goodnight. And when I woke up, I booted up my PC and decided to go check my Fiverr inbox. I was not prepared for what I got. That right then, that was my little magical moment. When you just click with someone... Here's that absolute beauty of a sketch: That right there is an artist who understands me. Who seemingly knew exactly what I was going for. This... this is way beyond what I expected I would get. Reminder that this is a mere sketch, a very good one, no doubt, but that's not even the finished product. Now, just imagine the magic this artist will be able to produce on-screen with a finished cartoon version. Absolute madness! Not only do the proportions match, but they actually did include the leather wristbands (more like armguard, but I actually like it better!) and the speedo. A few adjustments will be made along the way, but all in all... it's just bloody gorgeous! I'm still so in awe that I felt the urge to share this with you, and I hope you can appreciate the art for what it is. I will definitely proceed with this artist and they will get a tip from me after it's all done. I hope my little experience was at least somewhat entertaining to read, and maybe, if you are an artist yourself, it gave you a good perspective from a client's side of things and why you should always offer a free sample sketch. It's probably common knowledge, but still. I wanted this post to emphasize on such. Thanks for reading and take care.
  2. My gig is book cover designs. I am a graphic design minor in college and have been designing book covers for free on the writing platform Wattpad. I would say I am a beginner but I have been trained in Adobe tools for 2 years now in school. What is a reasonable amount to charge for a book cover? Since I am new to Fiverr and actually selling my covers, I listed the basic at $5. I had an order place within 20 minutes of it being active. I'm very timely, and feel that my designs are typically pretty well done. I wanted to get some reviews before bumping my pricing, but was unsure if it would matter. Is $20 too much?
  3. Hi! My name is Alyssa and my gig is designing book covers. Is it common o have many different gigs or focusing on 1? I already completed an order placed a few hours ago, which was place only 20 minutes after I activated my gig. SO, I'm super optimistic of my future here on Fiverr. Other things about me: I'm a cyber security major and a graphics design minor graduating in December I have been learning Adobe for 2 years now and practicing cover designs for 4 years for free on Wattpad (an online writing platform). I also dabble in writing my own stories. Looking forwards to being here 😊
  4. it's been a great fit working on Fiverr for about a year now. I'm from Nigeria and a lot of customers avoid my GIGs even though my work samples are very good, because of the country I come from. Once they see my country on my profile they just skip without clicking to watch my GIg video and this is bad because I'm professional at what I do. And never intend on scamming anyone because animation is what is for a living and I'm a hard worker. I love being an Animator. #Disney

  6. Good evening! I hope you had good holidays! 😊 Today I write because I wanted to know your opinion on the changes to my gig. I have arranged: the name of the images, the image (highlighting my offer in a square with a short text), the keywords and the category from illustration to design pattern which is perhaps most relevant to the mosaics I create. What do you think? I leave you the link here: I will create digital mosaic graphics A big thank you for your time! πŸ™
