    This might come off as a bit of an odd question... but where does one typically look when picking an artist for commissioned artwork? I'm looking to have one (or a series) of paid art pieces commissioned for an upcoming ship model sale. I've run into my fair share of character artists... but not so much for mecha (art pieces will involve cartoonized/drawn Sabre's). Anyone got any good classified like places for artists open to commissions?

    Here is a sneak peak:

    Isnt there existing art you can use?

    My first guess would be artstation.com

    I use Fiverr for everything like that. Had some good results.. here's what I've had commissioned before by Fiverr sellers, quality can be excellent for the price. You can also use DeviantArt but the problem there is they go nuts and attack you if your budget is too small. If you have a big budget, DeviantArt, if you have a realistic budget, Fiverr.

    Hmmmm.
    If you wanted character art, i know a couple people who could help you out. As far as ships go, though, i can ask around, but it probably won't help much. Fiverr is definitely a solid bet, though. Varying quality, sure, but not exactly hard on the wallet, either.

    have you tried out reddit yet? there are a ton of artists out there who are looking for work. My brother in law does alot of digital anime art if you're interested i could talk to him about it and i will say he is no amatuer.(Really wish he would do it as a profession but he claims he doesnt want to make his hobby into his profession)

    He's japanese so i don't think he knows what DeviantArt is. He's still getting setup on his new computer as he just bought a new pen pad the other day.(Needed more sensitivity) He hasnt sat down and done any extremely serious things yet on computer but i really do look forward to when he does(I think he spends maybe 1-3 hours on each of these and each are completely hand drawn). I keep telling him he should think about going professional but he says this is my hobby so he doesnt want to do it as a carrier. He just wants to do it for fun. Most of his stuff comes up from his mind occationally he will use something from the internet like the screenshot i asked him to quickly slap together for you guys.
