Imagine a team of (mostly) doujin illustrators, each with different preferences and styles. I keep everyone together and the team humming to the tune of making the world prettier and more awesome. One artwork at a time. Find the rest of the team here: www.facebook.com/cds.sg
So this UK lifestyle magazine for women tweeted that they are looking for illustrators to do some sexy art. Hey, they look legit and we get paid to draw sexy. Not a bad deal. Email sent.
Three days later, we got a reply asking if we will do it for free.
After some googling and looking at past examples of their illustration, I’m guessing that MAYBE those illustrators did work for free. That might explain how those artworks didn’t match the standard of their usual works on their website.
That said, this is an online lifestyle magazine that once received 350,000 pounds worth of funding. That is way more that what we charged for the Inori Aizawa project.
They jolly well can afford our rates.
