Turn on the app If you feel unsafe hold your finger on the screen. Once arrived to a safe location, enter your code. If your finger leaves the screen without entering the code law enforcement is notified and your location is tracked through your phone.

reblogging bc this seems really useful

This is very important!!!

here’s a bit of what I’ve been working on for the past couple of weeks- a redesign of Moulin Rouge!

I wanted to base it on the ottoman harem, more to come soon :)

*Man, ukiyo-e prints with a Western art-perspective look downright hallucinogenic

All right, so I’ve been asked for advice on pricing and the business of freelancing, and rather than try to somehow telepathically communicate links via Tumblr’s message system that doesn’t allow links, I thought I might as well put together a post of resources for figuring out the practical side of being an artist. Because this is stuff everyone needs to know anyway, right?

First off, a super-useful book for freelancers is “The Graphic Artists Guild Handbook: Pricing & Ethical Guidelines”. The prices may be skewed to the USA, but they give a good ballpark idea of approximately what’s expected in the market. So it’s a good starting point for figuring out your own prices and not ending up with something completely whacked out. The book also has tons of sample forms and information on best practices, which can be even more useful than the prices.

HANDY WEBSITES

Here’s some sites that often have good articles on the business of art and the finer points of freelancing:

artpact.com
theartorder.com
muddycolors.blogspot.com

FORUMS
Potentially useful forums (mostly concept art oriented, but they sometimes cover more general things too.)

CGTalk (AKA the forums on cgsociety.org)
polycount.com
penciljack.com
ConceptArt.org

* Yes I know ConceptArt.org has had a lot of political and technical turmoil lately, but the archives have a wealth of useful material. What I usually do is use Google to search the CA archives: type the topic you want + “ConceptArt.org” + optionally the section you think the topic is in (the “Art Discussion” section used to have a lot of stuff on the practical side of art.)

CGHub used to be another one, but it’s officially dead, alas. There’s a new one called "DrawCrowd", but right now it looks like it’s mostly for art sharing/eye candy and not so much for discussion/info.

OTHER RESOURCES
If you’ve got the money to spend, this is supposed to be pretty good:
theartoffreelancing.com

And it looks like there will be a useful video or two posted here (coming soon, but I have my eye on it:)
artconnectionacademy.com

And a spot of all-around good advice, with cartoons!

I’m sure I’m missing a lot more resources, if I think of more I’ll add them!

So the wonderful queengwenevere came to my rescue with a novella-length note full of supremely useful advice, and also threw this collection of helpful links in for good measure. Reblogging in case anyone else out there is in the process of trying to convince prospective employers that they really, truly are an honest-to-god Professional despite the fact that their shoes are held together with duct tape and their last major project consisted of designing a concert flyer for their housemates’ funk band in return for three bottles of Miller High Life and an understanding that aforementioned funk-band-having housemates will cease to filch the artist’s fancy organic tea.

Also, you folks should really check out queengwenevere’s fantastic webcomic when you get a chance. Stunning art, wonderfully eccentric characters, fabulous hairdos, giant robotic bats — it’s got the lot.
