Being more successful as game artist

Are you a game artist looking for jobs on the internet ?
Here are some points that will you make more successful in the long term:
  • Start your first contact mail with a salutation (yes, really).
  • Use your real name and not the cool artist pseudonym.
  • Have your own homepage that works without Flash. DropBoxis not an alternative.
  • Read the given specifications and requirements - getting hired without working samples that remotely match the requirements is very unlikely.
  • Know the basics about writing invoices and VAT.
  • Only suggest or agree to deadlines you can meet and if you can't meet a deadline, absolutely let the client know, never let a deadline pass silently.
  • Assess your level realistically between beginner, intermediate and expert.
  • Be professional.
