Hands off! by JamesLedgerConcepts Hands off! by JamesLedgerConcepts
All painted in Photoshop from scratch. No plan, except that I need to start designing creatures (this is my first attempt ever) and human characters, so I came up with this. Quite pleased. This image is a personal project, so doesn't belong to anyone else, i.e. a client. The full license for this image would cost $40 ($65).

This image took about 2 days to complete, due to the fact that there is no awkward perspective or detailed background.
To create an image like this from scratch would cost 150 to 200 ($200 to $300).

Have you had time for any reading lately?
Looks like you're keeping quite busy with
the digital painting.

Loads of painting, but hardly any work. I did have a good stretch but this is a bad stretch...for the time being.

Read a book called "a street cat named bob" which is not my usual taste but was ok.

About to start another called 'bleeding hearts' by Ian Ranking.

How about you?

I like Ian Rankin, from what I recall.
Not my normal reading either:D
I haven't had time to read a book in so long
I may forget how:D
I'm having that same bad stretch. The art industry really sucks sometimes.
We are closing our store at the end of Sept.
After 3 years of trying to get it going, we give up.
Kind of a waste of time, but we tried.
Maybe I'll have time to read a book after this. :laughing:

Reading it now - it's pretty good.
It does really suck at times, really badly. I seem to have gained a bit of interest again lately, but it's a case of having to reduce my fees which I just can't do.
Sorry to hear about your shop - it's such a nightmare. Sometimes no matter how hard we try, it just doesn't work out. I don't think it matters how hard people work, at the end of the day it is just luck whether something works out, especially as the world is becoming so over populated and so competitive.

Glad you're enjoying the book:)
One thing that we have been told about prices,
and I think this applies to hourly rates, commission
rates and project prices as well, don't under-sell yourself.
People get what they pay for, and most people will realize(eventually)
that paying less isn't always a bargain.
Not if they have to have it re-done by someone else in the end.
Charge what you are worth. It will pay off in the end.
I know. I'm one to talk ;) Difference being that what you do is applicable
to many different things, where as what I do is considered a luxury
or non-essential thing.
I need to find something that can be considered an essential :lol:

Yes - I agree with that. No more underselling, it just aint worth it unless there is something else like major publicity etc. My genre of art is very limited as local artists I know encourage learning to do more mainstream commercial illustrations etc. Yes - somehow you definitely need something that is in demand, which is still difficult with the fact that there are so many people already competing out there...

Very interesting and it runs both ways, is the creature telling the human to take his hands off his victum, or is it the more obvious one. Very good peice. i love the doubleness of it :)
