Finding Freelance work: pricing and self doubt!Why don't I get enough freelance work? Are my prices too high? I see these types of questions on Deviant Art a lot. Whether you are just starting out or you have been freelancing for a while, there is a good chance that you can improve your workload and income by applying a little bit of self confidence and assertiveness.Finding Freelance work: pricing and self doubt! by FriendlyHand
1) Don't wait for work to find you. Go find work. Read job ads. Find jobs that suit your skills. Also adapt your skills to match the jobs you find... That's very important. If you can provide a style or service that other artists can't match, that gives you an advantage. Make a list of freelancing sites and other sites with job advertisements. You can find some of them here: http://friendlyhand.deviantart.com/journal/#/d52v4i3 Keep track of which sites provide the BEST job leads for you and visit them regularly. Be prompt when applying for jobs. Some clients will take days to pick an artist but other clients will choose from the first few applicants.
I'm Sunset, but you can call me Sunny! I'm 19 years old and I really like Kagerou Project, Love Live!, Pokémon and various RPG maker/freeware RPG games!
I like to draw, watch anime, read manga, play video games and sleep.
I'm a self-taught hobbyist.
I'm not very active here, I mostly lurk on here, I'm a lot more active on Tumblr.
Don't be afraid of messaging me, I love to talk!

Clip Studio Paint Pro, GIMP
Feel free to ask me about my brush settings, but please keep in mind I change them frequently. Maybe too often OTL
