>>part of the team, instead, rather than freelancing
Would that mean employed? Then you should charge the amount that you need to make a living each month.
Your freelance rates, too, should be...
If I got a penny for every time someone promises great royalties if the project takes off, I'd be Scrooge McDuck's greatest rival by now.
This. I have low blood pressure and cold is the normal condition for my hands and feet. But if I wear warm socks and altogether dress warm enough, it works well enough.
And tea! I drink hot tea all...
I'm going to submit it to two (national, in Germany) competitions first. All entries must be unpublished comics, so I can't show anything yet.
But I WILL publish it later eventually. Either...
I currently have "the comic", and it's finished. For the last 6 months I worked on this personal project of mine, almost fulltime. Obsession helped a lot with that.
And yes, I'm somewhat...
My experience is only with freelancing, I haven't worked inhouse. So I can't compare. But does it matter?
Most fulltime concept artists actually work in-house, as employees. That's the most cost-efficient way for the company: by hiring the artists, the company gets all the rights to the concept artwork,...
Why don't you try?
If they say no, there's your answer.
In general, most clients want to see exactly the style of work they've been using,
I'm working as an illustrator and in my opinion you should be aware of the difference between graphic design and illustration, as you may want to focus on just one of these, especially if...
Yes, I relate with the going-bonkers from loneliness. There was a time when I had to stay on my own in a new, big, town, and it drove me crazy to have no one around.
For the same reason I work in...
Of course, art is not created in a vacuum. You need to balance the art-making with an actual life of your own. Most professional artists don't actually draw 12 hours nonstop.
My partner is a...
And... what if one were to say that your art could use a little more polishing of the fundamentals?! Some of it could really benefit from a critique session here on CA. That's what I would consider...
Never did - I'm from Europe and grew up with Franco-Belgian and Duck comics ;D
But arenhaus' interpretation is epic!
If I understand correctly the issue is:
you did work for a comic and the payment was to depend on if and how the comic sells in the end?
The contract should clearly stipulate the terms of that:...
If it consoles you in any way: During my studies at Angel Academy of Art in 2008, I was the very last one in my class to understand comparative measuring. But eventually I understood it.
I find it easier to build my scenarios or models in SketchUp and use that as reference :)
Why would you think anything is ruined, or that it is too late? It is never too late to take care of your health, looks and social skills.
As for me, making art is a lifelong goal and as a...
As arenhaus said, with a
license there isn't all that much you can do with the commissioned art. So I wouldn't see it as a ripoff.
you've gotten some solid suggestions on how to practise drawing. If you read around some more in this forum, you'll find even more.
At this point I feel that more...
Sounds like what you need is a grant, which are often given to working artists/professionals.
Have you already browsed the scholarship subforum? There's some great info....
Sounds fine. Just draw ;) Don't overthink it. Draw!
And as for:
- you have answered your own question already:
These might also be interesting:
You could start by changing your nickname, and using a different signature.
No kidding. I mean, we all feel like epitomes of failure at times, but learning to draw is a long hard road on which you...
