Gotta vent, and perhaps get some advice on how to deal with this issue (or if anyone wants to share some stories that they want to vent out).
How do people here deal with having to tell others--"outsiders"--why they should take your advice on something? In other words, how to defend your stance? I'm (currently) the sole 3D artist at a small consulting company (that , in majority, has nothing to do with art or animation or anything of the like), so, I'm constantly having to explain things to people with limited to no experience with animation (especially 3D animation). I'm sure everyone here, especially the freelancers, deal with this sort of stuff all the time. I'm sure people have dealt with someone asking for a change, and you tell them that it will take time to do, and they ask why it will take so much time, etc. etc. Got any tips on not necessarily dealing with those people, because we will always have to, but on dealing with yourself so you don't implode?
