freelance stuff and contracts you should sign while taking freelance

This is one of the freelance I worked on now im allowed to show it. Its for Cryptozoic entertainment. I have done couple other work for them but they aren't out yet. Hopefully I can upload them soon. So since we are here showing our freelance stuff, I wanted to mention about contract work. This isn't something recent but from 2013. It is the time, when I was partly looking for freelance. I came across this company called sky soul. The guy I talked to his name was Justin and he seemed pretty nice. They gave me a contract for 5 pieces which means I get paid after completing all 5 pieces (please don't ever sign contract like these). Firstly, it was pretty low paid and their demands for that rate were pretty high. Even though the example he showed me weren't that good. There was a lot of fixing they asked for which is fine I guess, comes with the work turf. After completing the first piece I started with the 2nd and completed that one too. During this time I was also working at Kabam and I told this guy that I am. After he received the file for 2nd psd he just stopped contacting me for the third one. He never got back to me. I sent him like more than 10 emails or so I believe on his email, on the website info email and to some of his colleagues email. So I started looking for some artist who have worked for them. I contacted them to contact this guy on my behalf and tell him to get back to me. So two of the kind artist gladly did. He told them because I responded late one the 2nd piece ( which I already talked to him about and he okayed it) he doesn't want to work with me anymore. The artist told them whatever the reason was you should be professional and talk to her rather than ignoring the thing. He denied he got any emails from me and even though the artist told him he still didn't get back to me. I then decided it was futile to pursue this and that I should let this go. I talked to one of the artist who told me that they made them copy legend of cryptids stuff and change very minor things. So basically they were just making bad copies of the legend of cryptids cards. boooooooooooooooooooooooo The moral of the story always ask for separate contract per piece unless you really trust the client you are working for. Anyways here the piece, hope you enjoy.


  1. you should just email them rihannas song bitch better have my money and they will understand everything. no but seriously you should always try to get half of the payment before starting any work and the rest after completion.

    1. lol hahahahaha, Um sometimes you cant claim because thats not ALOT of companies policies especially while doing freelance. The contract works for most part. All companies pay up after the work it was just this was an unusual experience, and I learned not to sign contract with multiple works in it and payment after. Just wanted to put it out there for for other people. :)
      thanks though.

  2. Beautiful artwork but that client was just NASTY! I hope his unprofessional ways of handling things gets him kicked out of the industry fast. Good luck on future freelance work!
