Hello artists, I read the rules and am aware that requests for free art are not tolerated, but I'm wondering if I'm allowed to seek artists for paid work?
I'd like to find an artist who can do science fiction with lots of vivid colors and techno-design, as well as be able to design machinery and other parts. There is no deadline, and it would be a very long ongoing relationship.
I'm writing a novel and looking for someone to do very unique illustrations, so I'm quite willing to pay well for each piece I ask for, and am more than willing to wait a long time for each piece to be a true work of art, and willing to pay the same price of several smaller pictures for one very detailed and well designed one.
I'm open to many styles save for cartoony, I'm looking for something well proportioned.
PS: Pic is an example of the kind of style images I'm trying to create, I do now own this image, it is from Galaxy Saga
Standardized Critique Form

I had an idea earlier today and I'm wondering if we could find a way to make this actually work.
There are a lot of fundamentals that come together to make a successful artist, but it's kind of hard to see our own weaknesses. From what I've noticed over the years on /ic/, when someone asks for critique we can usually pick out a few issues based on whatever art they choose to post. The problem with this is that you can't fully show the artist's strengths or weaknesses in just a picture or two. By that I mean, a landscape shot won't expose weak knowledge of anatomy.
So what I'm proposing is a sort of standardized critique, designed by /ic/, to give a solid understanding of someone's skills. Maybe a set of 6-8 required pictures, one of each type (edited into one big one to save space) or something similar.
This would allow us to have a much better understanding of their strengths and weaknesses, give much more accurate critiques, and help out many artists at once. Anyone care to join in?
