Concerning the prints question: I've dabbled with several online print on demand resources. I started with Cafepress.com but now I'm enjoying the variety that Society6.com allows. Here's a pic of a gift set I created for one of my daughters on her birthday. I took the original art and printed to canvas,a mug...even a pillow case! She loved it!
Congrats, Dean - any paid gig to practice our art is awesome!
Tonight I'll DJ'ng the Argentine tango portion of this Roaring 20s event - stop by if you're in the area! :-)
I did my first commercial render this weekend!
The client wanted something different for their introduction video, so I suggested a 3D character holding their logo, rather than a plain logo on screen with text. The bullet points that they wanted to mention come up in the space below the logo that the girl is holding (all purple areas in the picture are transparent, with blurred moving video behind).
The client loved it, and I'm pumped because I'm actually getting paid, even though I just started doing this 3D building a couple of months ago!
Kent, did you create the HungryChallenge? It looks really interesting. Are you from a liturgical church?
Tomas, where are you located? I wanna use your printer. :-)
Rachel, I am on the search for a local printer that I can work with.
Patti, Safe travels as you head to Oregon. It should be beautiful this time of year. Just off hand I don't know anyone from this group in that area, but perhaps someone will pop up. Blessings on this 13 week adventure!
Chris, you may need to charge more for your commissions. You should cover all of your supplies + get at least $10 an hour. I always charge more for commissions than a normal painting because commissions take longer and are more stressful! I'd say you should add a minimum of $50 -$100 per commission.
Anyone have more thoughts on this?
Nathan and Rachel, I'm making my own prints for now. I had one of my paintings scanned on a million dollar scanner, so I could make quality prints. However, I've found that some of my photos of my art create prints that look really great. I'm making prints myself from the suggestion of a very successful artist who sells tons of prints. With some experimentation I've found that I can 'touch up' my prints with a little acrylic paint and bring back the vivid color that's missing. I think this might be my strategy for awhile . . . at least until I figure out another way, or find a better paper.
