    Our young, dynamic and creative team is very close to our gamers and community and work very hard in order to satisfy the player's needs and desires.

    Exercise care in wording guys, there is an admin post around here that calls for insta-bans if people posting jobs here are verbalised in this manner. Exercise professionalism. If you do not agree with the terms laid out by a prospective client, simply do not apply.

    If there is something the client has said or done that would prevent you from chasing a contract then surely it can be expressed in a professional manner. For instance, given the possible long term nature/ repeat nature of the contract on offer, i myself would be willing to do a test piece. However, the client document appears to call for three test pieces, which as a time investment for the chance to do a single piece and only possibly multiple additional pieces, falls outside the range of risk for reward that i am willing to pursue.

    I think the insta-ban would be better applied to those touting for spec work. Nobody should be at the risk of being ripped off on these job boards.

    What you think is out of line with what this says, and it comes straight from Jason Manley, aka the top.

    http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=15736

    If you are lucky this whole thread will go un-noticed by a mod. I would argue that the ability of half the people who have posted on this thread to continue posting on this board, is at the discretion of the topic maker deciding to report the behaviour or not.

    I'm not going to keep going on about it here. I cannot force basic professionalism or politeness, but having told you of the forum policy on the chance you were unaware of it, my conscience is clean.

    Professionalism goes both ways, and spec work needs getting rid of.

    evamonkeyn2 is absolutely right. My policy is: if you don't like it don't apply for it or say anything.

    There are mods and admins in this forum to judge this kind of thing.

    I never see any mods putting a stop to this kind of 'job' offer. For every experienced artist who steers clear there will be ten inexperienced ones who are eager and fall for it. If this job forum is a seen as a place to chance for free art, then that should be the worry. Not people replying to it.

    Hi everybody,

    We apologize if your misunderstood our intentions with this test.
    In France, It is common to ask illustrators for a test in order to verify their potential, reactivity and respect towards the deadline. This enable us to also observe their strengths and weaknesses and at a later date, give appropriate professional feedback if this person has been selected for the actual vacancy.

    Recruiting Illustrators has always been this way in Europe, people hardly ever refuse to do a test.

    However, we did not fully realize that it might be different in the States. Just a matter of cultural difference.
    If you disagree with the test, you are in your right to decline the application.

    Apologies for this misunderstanding and best of luck to all the candidates.

    PS: Please avoid any debate on this post, you can send a private message to discuss.

    Watermarking an image isnt stopping spec work, the illustrator is still putting the hours in for a test. Portfolios are here for a reason, if I can draw the line work for a complex character or structure and paint it well with a high knowledge of light physics and color, it should be assumed that I can do similar work based on that...

    One test - OK if thats how its done in France, but Three? Its a little much my friend.
