    Animator + Graphic Designer + Illustrator

    United States - Last active: 6 days ago - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 7

    I have spent the past several years honing my skills as a freelance graphic designer, illustrator and animator. Through this process I have developed my work ethic as well as my skill set. Having the opportunity to work with a plethora of companies has taught me how to adhere to strict and timely deadlines, as well as adapt my personal artistic style, and mode of communication to fit the needs of diverse clients. I have created promotional products, animations, packaging, brand concepts, and illustrations just to name a few tasks. I have received consistent positive feedback, and in return I receive back-to-back projects and work on many assignments at any given time. I feel extremely comfortable brainstorming with clients to grasp their complete vision, as well as juggling the projects that I am required to complete. I have the ability to take a clients vision and turn it into a tangible, useable product, or design. This ability and the positive feedback I receive make my job rewarding on a daily basis.

    digital artist with 8 years' experience

    Ukraine - Last active: 10 days ago - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 64

    Over the last 8 years I have joggled both creative photo editing and digital painting. Initially I am an experienced traditional artist and it helps me much to create high quality work digitally. I am very attentive to detail and strong at realistic painting. I will never take the job if I feel I am not able to cope with the given task. In short: I am an easy to work with, take direction well and flexible in terms of payment. Experience: - book illustrations - book cover art/design - banners - portrait painting - children's books - posters for horror movies and books (I like dark stuff!!) - photo editing (fashion, product retouch, creative photo manipulation etc etc.) Strong points: - fully texturised photorealistic painting (I can paint from zero) -I preserve the full range of colours and shades so that the artwork is fully editable after it's done. I.e. b/w conversion will never reveal overlighting and black holes. - I fight against fuzzyness and overblurring - I have a good eye for colour and composition - light-hearted personality - I respond quickly, politely and respectfully,always warn my clients about my personal issues. - I ask MANY questions so that the artwork's done perfectly and suiting my client. Please contact me if you feel I am worth working with. Respectfully to all my would-be clients, Polina.
