    A Couple Demos

    Most of you won't be interested, but I posted a couple step by step demonstrations in the "Tips and Tricks" section.

    One is about painting Christmas windows.

    The other is about painting signs or logos onto a rough stucco surface.

    Have a look.

    It's not concept art, but they are both ways of using your talent to make money and they are both kind of fun to do. So while you're waiting for Lucas Arts to get back to you give this a try. It's better than factory work.

    So do I, just as a recap, you start out with latex house paint for the primer and finish with sign paint? Do you sketch your stuff small and grid it or do you somehow trace it on your surface? Or you just make it up as you go?

    egerie, Well I don't know if you want to do anything too rash, but maybe you could try a couple and if it goes well then maybe you could quit the other job.

    Qitsune I just design on the fly. Sometimes I have no idea about the size or shape of the window until I get there so it would be hard to plan too much ahead of time.
    All the non flourescent colors are just housepaint. I often go to Home Depot and check the "Ooops Rack" where they sell off their mistakes for $5.00 a gallon. They are often nice bright colors just not quite what the customer ordered.
    The flourescent colors are "Day Glow" brand tempera paints From "Product Sign Supplies" in San Jose California. It's expensive. $50.00 to $75.00 per gallon. I always mix alittle acrylic medium into it to make it waterproof.
    You can get smaller bottles of flourescent paint at an art supply store for a lot less money initially, but if you work out the price per gallon it's a lot more expensive. Still I'd try that at first just to see if it's something you want to do before investing a lot of money.
    Have fun.
