Art Business Bootcamp 1: Getting You Found
This is pretty much the exact advice I give to people.
Also: to find different art directors and publishers and studios if you don’t already have some in mind, look at the client lists of artists who are working in the field you want to work in. :)
Extra tip: if you speak any languages besides English, your pool of possible commissioners just got bigger. Research the market in countries other than US if you’re able to (you can probably contact these people in English anyway, but researching their contact details might prove difficult).
(I don’t usually post this stuff on this blog, but this seemed like a good time to make an exception)
For future reference
I like how tumblr just told me I’m a pro in the bedroom.
Sketchdump for the day. :O
Self Portrait and a random male character that is yet to be clothed.
"Boredom is your ‘fuller life’ calling you, and you fear hearing the call."
I dunno y’all. This week was creatively frustrating. Didn’t really like the composition. Tried doing the colors with watercolor and it did not turn out well. Looked like a kindergartner’s first time with the stuff. Je ne sais pas quoi faire. :|
So I submitted my painting to EatSleepDraw and look at all those hearts! I feel a little better about my art now and more motivated as well.
Art jam stuff. I think I’m beating this theme like a dead horse. Must draw other characters for a change! Looks like he’s dancing. Should’ve found a different reference pic. :O
Concept, hopefully to be painted. Maybe.
Feel like I’ve peaked artistically. My style hasn’t evolved as far as I had hoped once graduating from school. Can’t see any more substantial growth. It’s all downhill from here.
Ha, being a librarian sounds rather pleasant right now. Might try it out later down the road.
Digital coloured version. Gonna watercolour it tomorrow and see which I like better. :O
