If you are an illustrator and were invited to help create illustrations for our IG page: Psych2Go_tips, where we further promote our video content in the form of illustrations, or comics, here are the FAQ’s:
- Should I based the illustrations on existing videos or future videos?
A: They should be based on the more recent videos that way people can stay up to date with our most updated and recent content. Let’s keep things fresh for our community.
2. Do I choose the video to illustrate my comic/graphic on or does a staff member assign me?
A: You get to choose, but please avoid ones that have already been completed or is being worked on by someone else. To find out if someone else is working on the same illustration topic, you can review the IG page to see what’s posted recently. If you don’t see your topic posted, it means the topic is available.
3) If I am basing my art on your videos, am I required to copy the art style the animator used or can I apply my own?
You can apply your own! But keep the theme or style consistent with the other posts or styles please. If you are unsure, you can always submit one first and we will take a look.
4) Is there a. certain style/color pallette that I should follow?
A: Relating to question 3, you are free to try your own pallette, but do check these past ones for reference:
6) When do you need them by?
Animation generally takes 2 weeks to complete. Since it’s just a static illustration, we hope that you can finish 1 every two days. Do you think you can do it?
What helped previous illustrator save time was they just screen shot or take parts of the videos and add it to the illustration by copy and paste.
7) How frequently do I have to submit artwork?
If we can aim for 3-4 posts a week, that would be a big accomplishment. Since we do publish 7-10 videos a week, you should have more than enough videos to choose from. Unless, we hire too many illustrators … and you don’t get a project.
8) When can I start?
You can start right away and submit your first post. The dimensions for IG posts are. “For instance, an ideal aspect ration for square photos is 1:1, and for vertical photos — 4:5. ”

9) How do I get paid?
Every two weeks, you will submit into our google form to collect your payment based on what’s agreed with your manager. Paid are through Paypal. You should be able to create one if you’re over 18. But if not, you can always use your parent’s paypal and let them collect your money.

- How soon will I receive a terms and conditions document to review?
