A huge thank you is due to everyone who took part in this project. Your energy and imagination inspired Neil, and now, can inspire the world.

Fuck you. Pay me. -- A masterpost for artists.
As an artist, you probably will be approached by various people over time. Some may be looking for commissions, others will most likely be looking for free art.
Here are some handy resources concerning the "free art"-people. First of all, there's this handy flowchart called "Should I Work For Free?.
If they say they'll pay you with:
-Eventual cut of the profit when profits are made
-No pay, since artists "shouldn't be sell-outs, but draw for fun"
Then run for the hills and get away as fast as you can.
Because if it's for a game, a comic or another for-profit project, the most normal response should be "Fuck you. Pay me." (worded politer, though that goes without saying).
Spec-work? -- Fuck you. Pay me.
"We don't have the budget for 20 sprite-sheets, but we'll sell this game and your name will be in the credits!" -- Fuck you. Pay me.
"We need 10 sprites / full paintings by tomorrow,

So apparently I update this journal once a year. -_-

ANYWAY. I just realized I’ve been sort of basically absent from DA for… a month? Two months?? There was a lot of real life stuff going on, and it got awfully distracting for a while and I just kind of… forgot to check in. ^^; 

So yes, stuff has been happening! Some annoying stuff! But mostly good stuff! Among the annoying things was of course my old computer going kablooie… Two months later and I’m still hunting up old files, reinstalling and reconfiguring applications, trying to rebuild my old bookmarks, and fun stuff like that. So, yay. 

Among the good things has been a flurry of animation jobs, (fun, but they tend to have very short deadlines, so it’s kind of stressful and I keep having to drop all my side projects to meet animation deadlines.) Also among the good-but-stressful things is the fact that I snagged a table for IlluXCon this year! THIS IS MY FIRST CON. I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT I’M DOING. AND OH MY GOD YOU SHOULD SEE THE LEVEL OF ARTISTS AT THIS THING WHAT HAVE I GOTTEN MYSELF INTO. PANIC COMMENCES NOW. So yeah, a lot of my free time should really go into preparing for this thing, because I am nowhere near ready and have no clue.

Meanwhile I’ve been desperately trying to build up a  buffer for the Wayward Queen webcomic, because it’s getting harder and harder to keep up with timely updates - I need a buffer for sanity’s sake! So far it’s, um, not going so well (I’m still basically zero pages ahead of myself)… But I’ll build up a buffer or bust, dammit!

I… guess I should reply to things. I can’t believe how long I’ve ignored my message center. This is so embarrassing. ^^;

Just FYI, I seem to be somewhat more active on Tumblr these days, if you’re into Tumbling (I’m QueenGwenevere on Tumblr.) It’s just so much easier to slap stuff up on Tumblr than on DA (I swear DA just keeps making things more complicated, so I always put off posting.) Though I should really post some of that stuff here, too.

  • Listening to: Florence and the Machine
  • Reading: Trashy gothic fluff from the 19th century
  • Eating: Clementines
  • Drinking: Tea. When is it not tea time?

Happy birthday! May your birthday be a day for you to pig out, bum out or just chillax! :D
QueenGwenevere Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2014
Really stupidly late thanks! ^^; Haha, I actually ended up working - I've been whacked with crazy last-minute deadlines this month (hence why I've been so bad about replies.)

Totally plan to make up for it later, though. I already have a post-Birthday dinner planned with a friend who's been missing holidays too.

Happy Dandy, Merry, Cheery, Birthday~!
QueenGwenevere Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2014
Really hopelessly ridiculously late thanks! ^^; A not-so-dandy deadline took over my life for a couple of weeks there... But at least there was pie! Pie is good.
Cid-Alderlaine Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2014  Student General Artist
Pie's always a luxury to enjoy :3
