I'm looking to hire a freelancer to help with 3d modeling. I've thought up a few qualifiers so far:
- Is their topology okay for animation?
- Have they demonstrated the technical capabilities necessary for my project? (Have they baked normals, AO maps, etc.)
- Have they shown an ability to execute from conceptual drawings?
Are there any massively important things I should watch out for that I haven't included?
Any red flags I should be aware of, like making sure the work isn't plagiarized?
I'm specifically talking about reviewing portfolio content, before interviewing them. I'm looking for things I can say yes or no to, or that I might want to question them on further in an interview.
