Are you an artist currently seeking commissions? Post a link to your portfolio with a general idea of your pricing structure! Be sure to subscribe to the sub and check daily for new requests.

What are the rules?
We don't have many, and most of them are common sense!

If you have any issues, please message our Moderators!

Rule 1. Commissioning art

If you are commissioning a piece, please include [Hiring] at the start of your post. You MUST provide a budget IN USD for how much you would be willing to pay for your artwork. If you’re not sure of the specific number, give a rough estimate of your budget.

Please be as specific as possible with your listing and provide as much useful information as possible about the specs of the project, including size, purpose, media, and deadline.

  • When you have found your artist, please comment on your post - ' Position Filled ' to announce that you are no longer looking. This will also lock your thread.

Rule 2. Payment and Pricing

We discourage any budgets or prices that are under $30 per piece. After July 30th, 2022, prices under $30 will no longer be allowed.

  • If you are purchasing a piece that requires commercial rights, the minimum is $100 USD - With that, we will also require that if you are looking for (Work For Hire) WFH / Full rights transfer of a commercial piece, the price should reflect that. On average, the cost of a full rights transfer is 200-300% of the creation cost. Our recommended industry entry level standard is $500 per piece to take over full ownership of the image. Anyone asking for full rights below that rate will be removed.

Please use a payment processor that has buyer and seller protection with the ability to include terms and conditions, a contract, and escrow or refund options. PayPal Business / "Goods and services" options are the most common. There is NO reason to use a 'friends and family' money transfer with a stranger online. It's typical for the client to cover any payment fees or for the artist to include them in their pricing.

Contracts are STRONGLY recommended for additional protection of both artist and client. Every single time without question you should have a contract, no matter what.

If you have concerns with a transaction, report it to the moderators for investigation.

  • All “bitcoin” currencies are banned and will only be allowing ‘fiat money’ or stable currency from now on. No gift cards, stocks, weird e-check scams, or fortnight points and so on. Artists should be able to pay all of their bills with the money they earn off the /r/HungryArtists subreddit. ALL NFT PROJECTS ARE INCLUDED - If you are purchasing the digital publishing rights or NFT rights of a piece of artwork , that is a different discussion that both parties should agree to and be paid for. Payment in NFTs, percentages, or coins does not count as payment under rule 2

Rule 3. SPEC work

Free work is not allowed.

Do NOT ask for artists to create any amount of work before agreeing to payment and hiring the artist. Every artist hired must receive payment or the project will be considered as speculative work

Competitions are not allowed. No 5-minute sketch samples. No unpaid 'tests'. No investment opportunities. No "I'll pay you when this gets funded".

  • Please report anyone seen asking for, offering, or making free artwork in an attempt to get the job.

Rule 4. Artist Portfolios

Artists, please include [For Hire] at the start of your post. Try to include price and image examples. Be clear on your ability to ship and shipping costs if applicable.

  • Your portfolio must not require login/account creation. Any kind of store page are not allowed on this subreddit. Post on /r/artstore instead.

  • Artists, while commenting, please do not attempt to undercut each other in the community. The client picked their budget for a reason and with an expectation of a quality that matches that budget or higher. We are a marketplace where price is flexible but going lower is never the answer.

Rule 5. Spam
You will be warned and subsequently banned if caught doing these spam offences frequently:

  • Posting portfolios with no correlation to clients request, eg, the client asked for an oil painting and your portfolio is 100% logo design.

  • Posting the same copy-pasted response to client requests. Personalise and acknowledge you actually read the request.

  • Linking to sites that require an account.

If you see spam or have concerns with a transaction report it to the mods for investigation.

Rule 6. Posting Limits
Do not make more than one post per week . This ONLY applies to artists' FOR HIRE posts.

Deletion of posts is discouraged for recordkeeping purposes. If there is a need, the mods can lock a post upon request.

Rule 7. Supportive and professional conduct
Be supportive and professional. If someone is doing something wrong or needs some help, politely let them know, in PM if necessary. Comments negatively criticising art portfolios openly will be banned.

No matter the user, please don't create a hostile environment by insulting or cursing. We expect everyone to be professional and use common courtesy. Use the report button and let us handle issues. Continual hostile activity will result in a ban from the sub.

Rule 8. Art Theft
Art theft will be tolerated under NO circumstances. Do not steal other's work or IP to copy or profit from. The client has a responsibility to make sure their reference images are legal to use for their commission. Artist Credit must be given where it is due, but is not seen as a valid form of payment.

As always, rules are up to moderator discretion, so if someone is being an ass, they may see consequences even if they're just toeing the line.

If you do not see your post

Please note that if you have a relatively new account or very low comment karma(<25), your posts will be caught in the spam filter- IF you have OVER 25 Karma and are still having issues please message the moderators to have your post reviewed. No posts under 25 karma will be approved. This is a preventive spam measure for people who have no interest in participating in our community.

Posts containing shortened URLs (such as bitly, tinyurl, and so on) will be automatically removed.

[HIRING] Abstract-ish art of a black hole for a short story ($75 price limit)

Put a description of the commission here. Please put as much possible detail about the commission for the best result. Format, Size, purpose, media, and deadline are all useful to the artists. You must put an estimate of your budget in USD using the $ sign. If you have a link, paste it in this box.

Hello! I need art of a black hole for my Graded Unit in my creative writing college course. The story features two main 'visual' things: a tree, and a black hole. I'd like the piece to show a dead, ruined tree in front of a petal. Ideally, I'd like a small colour pallet? If that makes sense? Like, mostly black, with brigher colours to highlight it? Big, bright accretion disk around the black hole. Doesnt have to be super detailed, id rather it look simple (but still good, obviously). Its a weird comparison, but sort of like the cover art for Whatever It Takes by Imagine Dragons? I know thats a weird comparison, but that, and with tree.

Tree in from of very big black hole on a dying world. Dying world does need much detail. Small lake in the backgroud.

My price limit is $75, but if youre really, really good (like perfect) i could go above that maybe. I'd need it done by the 18th of May this year.

Thank you, and sorry if my description was a bit weird/confusing.
