I'm fairly new here, but I've been checking out some of the amazing fan artwork on this and some of the other sites, and I have to say I am very impressed.
I run a website specializing in Streaming Live-Auctions of Action Figures and Toys, and now that we've had our first few successful online Auction Events, I'm looking to spruce up the place a bit with some new Artwork. That's where you folks come in!
Seeing as how my skills are pretty much limited to some mediocre PhotoShop abilities, I'm asking anyone out there who would like to do some art commissions for us to get in touch with me. Since the stuff our consigners bring us is pretty eclectic, ranging from Vintage to 'Con Exclusives to International Stuff to Custom Pieces, we would love for the overall look and feel of the site to reflect that variety as well, so nearly all styles are welcome.
What we are mainly looking for is themes that blend together the idea of Action Figures and Live Auctions in whatever unique ways you can come up with. You can check out our website
to get an idea of what we are looking for (and just how bad my Photoshop skills are
), get a feel for what we're trying to do, and maybe come up with some ideas of your own.
Right now, we are need some new Bidder Paddle Artwork, Artwork for our Advertising (including Banner Advertising) and Mailing Pieces as well as our Catalogs, and various images for the Website, so digital media is fine and works great for us. If you have physical media, like inks or oils, that's great too. We can also sell the originals for you at one of our Live-Auction Events, so it's also great exposure for you and your art.
If any of you out there are interested, please contact us either here or at TheBigToyAuction.com with your commission rates, a link to some of your previous work, and any ideas of what you would like to create for us, and we will be glad to go from there.
We look forward to hearing from you!
