Artists: STOP and READ!
People need to stop completing projects for clients under market prices (i.e., minimum wage). This drags the entire art market down and damages your future as an artist, damages other artists' livelihoods, and negatively affects the art industry as a whole (e.g., client perspective of the value of an artist's time/skill).
Artists need to be professional, and they need to treat their work as something that consumes resources (time, equipment/supply cost, etc.). I am surprised by how many people believe an artist will do work for free, or for the "idea" of success...that someone can bait an artist and their hard-earned and practiced skills by saying "you will be paid when I get paid...if the project is successful." There are also people out there who think an artist's work is theirs to use any way they want once they receive the commissioned art, without ever discussing it with the artist - or worse - without the artist taking the client aside and explaining copyright and licensin

Biyomon Tri
I had it in my head for a while how this one would play out.  I just knew that I wanted to use Biyomon's main attack (Spiral Twister) somehow without overpowering the whole picture with it.  I loved drawing Phoenixmon in the all of that grand glowing glory.  I tried my hand at painting feathers; it was different I must say.

When I was toddler age, I loved coloring books like any other toddler. I colored them to the best of my abilities until I got bored with them or ran of the pages to color. There are only so many pages with Pluto (Disney) or the Power Rangers in the same positions, right? As a result of that boredom, I'd trace over pages that I previously colored. I don't remember why exactly, maybe to get a sense of what each looked like or just to have more "pages" to color.

Anyway, as I got older, that tracing turned to drawing. I had gotten enough visual information from some of the cartoon characters that I traced that I could now draw them on my own. If not on my own, then I'd always search online for reference images (pissing my parents off with the amount of ink it took to print some of them out). The shows I watched, the comics I read, if I loved the character, I most likely tried my hand at drawing them (always had a borderline obsession with Sonic characters).

Fast forward to high school, I decided to finally take traditional art classes. I touched on a variety of things during that time: drawing, sketching, painting, list goes on. I went into college taking similar courses, getting a degree in Digital Art in the process. By then, I didn't really draw so much in my free time. Life can throw a lot of distractions your way when you grow up. When I got out of college, I freaked out about jobs and life just like any other twentysomething straight of college with a degree and NO experience.

I got the idea that I was going to start a portfolio page, learning Photoshop, Illustrator and any other relevant program along the way. Little did I know that I delve back into drawing cartoon/comic characters like I did before. This time, all of those art classes that I took before had benefitted me in ways that I really didn't expect. So here I am right now, not exactly a professional but doing what I love whenever I can and despite life's occasional curveballs. Time will only tell where this may or may not lead......

Thx for the fav on several of my Sonic Anny Series Freedom Fighters. They are each an exciting challenge to undertake as I move towards the major characters of the series.

I appreciate the showing of support.
