Dear Ms. Letterman,
I admit to being excited seeing there was a position available with your company for a VFX Artist. After reading this letter and reviewing my resume you will see why I am the best applicant for the position. I have hands-on experience in a range of arts that include traditional drawing animation programming and the latest in computer graphics.
I have spent the last five years using these tools to design visually striking designs that sends a positive and intended message. I have worked at Kiwi Corporation and Kimmel Graphics Productions. The assignments I have worked on have each become passion projects. There is something about designing and creating characters and environments that thrills me beyond description. I tackle storyboards and modeling. I have done quite a bit of work in composition weaving special effects into video. I am also adept at taking existing video and adjusting placement color and lighting. Self-motivated and enthusiastic I go after the best ways to produce visual effects that are as realistic fantastical or cartoonish as the project requires. I think I could do wonders with your company as a VFX artist.
Please call me so that we can arrange an interview. I welcome the opportunity to further discuss my VFX Artist background and how it could benefit your team.

Dear Ms. Duncan,
I wish to apply for the position of Artist as advertised. I have the necessary skills and qualifications for this post, as well as the necessary experience. I therefore believe that what I have to offer to Oasis Arts will be of great benefit to the organization.

I also have considerable experience as an artist doing a wide variety of different projects for various clients. My art work covers drawing and painting as well as sculpture. However, I prefer to specialize in painting.
I have always believed that any artist should have as much knowledge as possible about every type of artistic expression, and to this end I have made it my business to further my personal education in as many directions as I can, gaining hands-on experience whenever I can.
I believe that my artistic talents are of a fully mature nature and can greatly enhance the aims and direction of Oasis Arts. I am a good communicator and I believe in establishing a close connection with those who have the vision that requires expression.
