Looking for information regarding Freelancers
Hi, I've been on the site for a year now. I've applied for so many freelance projects however so many of them either get cancelled or go dark. By go dark, I assume its because someone else has been selected for the project. Fair enough, there are some fantastic modellers on the site. Was just wondering roughly what percentage of freelance projects on the site actually end up being completed vs get cancelled. For people who specialise in the Freelance 3d projects section, what are your methods for ensuring/increasing your chances of being picked for the job. I specialise in vehicle modelling in Blender, so what could I do to help my chances of being selected for a job. Since I am also very experienced in Unity, how can I show this to a potential employer on a 3d project (since CGTrader is generally only for 3d models and not game dev).
Is CGTrader the prime place for finding 3d modelling freelance work?
I agree with you. The market here is really difficult to stand out in. There are some incredible people on this platform. I have been struggling with the same issues.
I find you're better sticking with low-poly PBR models, which yours are. I do think Constantine was a little rough as the cars I saw were fine for a lot of indie game-devs, which is your bread and butter. Making something all singing and dancing isn't worth the effort unless you're getting paid top dollar. I make a living out of modelling (and writing about it), you must remember that most models that are bought here are used in basic games for basic users that don't have the latest graphics cards and 10 billion gigs of memory. Low-poly, PBR modellers pay attention to poly-count, not detail. Don't be fooled by those fantastic models (and they are fantastic) that have a heavy price tag but only sell once per year. Selling 3 or 4 a day on one site is a better business than a one-hit-wonder.
in order to get a job, you need to make better cars than you do . you have weak models .
turn on your brain ! I'm from Russia, I write through a translator . I didn't write anything offensive ! online translator gives similar words in meaning . here is a set of words that convey the meaning that I wrote in the first Comment - "you need to learn ""the model is not the best ""few skills "" does not attract attention "
