I appreciated your comment.

I'm an amateur photographer.. dare I call myself a "photographer." I'm nowhere near professional... it miffs me that people think that they can take artists' work for granted... like asking for work to be done for free because they don't want to pony up to pay, or (in my line of art) stealing photos/photo proofs.

I can imagine as a photographer that'd be difficult. Because I know it probably happens all the time. There have been some amazing photos posted here on hf or places like flickr that i'd love to draw. I've learned to just email or message the photographer for permission to draw it-rissa's done it quite a bit for me. That way you're covered all around.

Amen! I, too, and an amateur photographer as well as a model horse paintwork artist. I run into the same issues all the time!

The thing is though, I don't want to pay someone to find out they paint like crap. Which is why if you paint it/draw it/make it and I LIKE it, I will pay you.

That's why you ask for examples and - frankly - you pay for top quality. We have some amazing artists on this board. Designing something as important as a tattoo should be worth more than $15 to you.
Just a thought.

Yep. You know what they say, "you get what you pay for".

However, there are some nice budding artists here that might do some work for you for $15. But, what can you offer in return? Some of them want to develop their portfolios or get new clients, so if you had a way of broadcasting the work that you choose, so that the artist benefits from future client development?

If it was easy, you'd do it yourself, right?

People spend 50$ on a lesson that lasts an hour, and maybe you get something out of it to add to your riding growth. But the same $50 would buy you a painting or drawing of some quality here, that you could have forever.

Rereading my post, I see I was a bit snippy, and I do apologize. Was really having an off day yesterday (my water heater sprung a leak and the whole basement is wet).
