I am a 3D modeler and some what of a animation artist, mostly I do CGI work and some freelance on the side.
I want to help out Indie developers more as I find that I enjoy that kind of work, how ever looking around I found that requests for 3D artist to work on games is low compared to other kind of 3D work.
a1.) So I was wondering HOW do indie developers look for artist to help them?
a2.) Has any one here ever recruited a artist and if you did how?
a3.) Do you prefer working with a single artist full time or do you switch, hiring a new artist for each job?
a4.) Would you prefer to buy your assets from a store, instead of work with a artist?
a5.) How much do you budget for art?
I know this is market research, however I believe it can help artist and other asset designers to work better with developers.
I have some freelance experience so if you have questions you can ask.
