Drawin' old webcomic characters playin' some zero G dodgeball.
I think your darks are too dark. My wife did not even see the boys until I pointed him out.
Fair enough! You're almost certainly right. There's always next time since I think I'm doooooooone with this one for a little while
@EliaMurrayArt Thank you so much for doing that! I'm gonna try making some of my own pretty soon now
Here is the link to the video!
Thanks everyone for tuning in. This was the final showcase for a little while (things are gettin' busy again I think for everyone) but if I fire them up again I'll be sure to post around the forums
Out of curiosity, what have you heard about Lemonade? I'm assembling a list of agencies to contact. Should I leave Lemonade off?
Nothing specific. Some hearsay and scuttlebutt. It's one of the reasons I was curious if anyone had any scuttlebutt on Advocate. Scuttlebutt can sometimes hint at the truth. I think I just like saying scuttlebutt. Sounds dirty but it's not. I think I need more sleep.
Anyhoo, nothing bad in particular. Just random bits here and there.
they won't give big important contracts to new untested artists. But also if a job isn't terribly important or well-paid, they will often send it to new artists first. Why bother their top earners with small jobs, right?
It might seem a little dirty or discouraging, but it really makes sense from their point of view and it's not as hard or long as one might think to work your way up your agency and earn trust. Just give your 200% on every job they send you, be really professional and do your very best art even on projects that aren't that well-paid, and you will swiftly earn your agency's trust and work your way up the ladder.
Absolutely agree. The best way to be seen as indispensable is to become indispensable. Professionalism goes a looooong way.
There will be what the agency thinks of as their top tier artists - all incoming work is filtered through these artists first and if there is anything leftover someone else is given a shot at it.
At your first job, you always start with the dirty tasks no one else wants. It's kinda the way things are. Almost no one starts anywhere but the bottom
Maybe she didn't update her portfolio often enough, maybe she didn't participate in any showcases, maybe she had a bad work ethic/attitude or kept missing deadlines so clients didn't want to work with her, who knows. Or maybe through no fault of her own, Advocate just wasn't doing a good job of finding her work. We can't know...
There's always two sides to the story Thank, Ness. Not a lot of info good or bad out there, so we'll see. I'm waiting to hear back from some of their artists (I'll email some more today).
Thanks for the info!
I've been firing out emails looking for agencies, and I'm starting to look at some of the larger ones.
I've heard bad things about lemonade, but does anyone have any gossip about Advocate Art? They have a fair number of clients, but they also have a lot of agents. The ratio of clients to agents seems like a good number.
I've reached out to a bunch of their artists and a few other people but I'd love to crowd source an opinion.
There's three minor poor reviews on 'glass door' but they smacked of self importance if you get what I mean.
So any scuttlebutt on advocate art?
This week we have @EliaMurrayArt showing us her process. If I remember correctly, Elia was one of the winners of April's critique arena!
@EliaMurrayArt will you be showing us some of how you made those awesome models and environments?
If you're interested in attending the showcase, feel free to shoot me a PM for a zoom link or join the facebook group. https://www.facebook.com/groups/226573271732680
This will probably be the final showcase for a little while. Life after quarantine is beginning to get busy again
Hi guys! The informal showcases continue! This time @jdubz will be showcasing process and sharing a few other interesting bits about communication as an artist!
Feel free to send me a PM for a link to the facebook group or a link to the meeting. Saturday, 1:00 PM PST
