This is kind of an old ask, sorry, and I think you’ve already made a commissions post, but here are some tips anyway! I’ve been a pretty bad commissioner in the past and let some things drag on way longer than they should, but I’ve grown a lot and these are the things that have helped me be more responsible and professional!!!
I think that’s it for now! I do not naturally possess the temperament and work ethic to be good at freelancing, so every one of these lessons has been learned the hard way, by bumbling through and making mistakes and gradually learning how NOT to annoy my clients and turn a simple portrait commission into an absolutely traumatic experience. So hopefully I can save some other developing artists from going through the same trauma!
I’m from southwest Missouri!!!
For all my friends who aren’t in the city tonight, or just can’t attend for other reasons, SVA will be streaming the Dusty Award Ceremony tonight starting at 6:30 PM Eastern time!!!
This is not a screening of the actual films, just our chance to be super fancy and honor some of the really amazing work that came out of the film & animation department this year. See you there!
not for a while I’m afraid!!! I’m still having a guy do the sound (I actually really need to e-mail him about it, after I run all the other errands and do all the other stuff I need to do today, SCREAMS) and there are a couple other things I want to fix, if I can get to a computer with the right software, and after that I still want to be careful, because I want to try sending it to some festivals and a lot of them won’t accept submissions that have already been posted publicly online!
patience, my child!!! UoU
