Thankfully, one got it right. I am very pleased. Interesting to note, she is fairly new here and I hope she gets a ton more work. I’ll rate her high and get another package to rate her again…that is how right she got things.
Backing up…I came to find graphics for a shirt I want to market. I put out a call for artists and explained what I was seeking. I included a rough drawing. I then paid for several sellers to send me their version of my drawing. I had been specific that this would be 1 color and should translate. I asked for a drawing of a specific animal in a specific situation.
Without getting in to every detail, and using a general reference… if you ask for an Apple in a Bowl, and get an Orange in a Cup, or on a Stove top… the seller is waisting your time and money!!
That is a problem. I will stick to the seller who’s first pass was exactly what I described and had in my rough drawing.
How badly some sellers got this, surprised me. I was more than a bit befuddled to get “oranges in cups and on stove tops” while seeking that ‘apple in a bowl’.
Can you report someone for providing what are obviously ignored instructions? One seller went so far as to take the notes on my drawing…and add them as words, all over the front of the shirts design. Literally…all my notes were in graphic text, on the shirt design draft. WTF? (the notes were around the page with arrows pointing towards the drawing, in certain areas. To give notes and suggestions of things they might add to the art).
What do we do? Badly rate all the sellers who wasted our time and money? Ask for a refund? Ask Fivver to look harder at some of the ‘sellers’? You tell me. This was my first time as a buyer (after a friend raved about use of the site). I was polite to the people who got it all wrong…but now I want to know…do I down rate them?
I was hoping to have choices and instead, I got a lot of crap and only 1 solid job complete.
