Me and Sidarta we have been to a shady bar, one of these places that work almost 24/7, with horrible service, a barmaid permanently pissed off and some whorish looking ladies on the bar, whose only accomplishment in life is to smoke where it is forbidden.
But this bar has the most amazing and cinematic light conditions. The interior was just ready to be filmed right there on the spot.
How to avoid having "final.psd", "final final.psd", "final final ver2.psd"?
Simply name them by the date created for the project to take "project_14_06_19.psd" look. Such a simple thing, but this is a revelation for many.
Charging by the hour punishes me for being good and efficient.
- I want to pay you by the hour. How many hours did it take you to design this?
- My entire life. If I am 32 now, then let's calculate and multiply. 32 by 365 by 24 is 280 320 hours.
Most business people value time. So if they can get their logo done in 5 minutes rather than wait for 4 months, they better do it. If I do a logo for you in 5 minutes, should you pay me less? You should pay me more because I have just saved you a lot of time.
Maybe you want to save some money, but in the end, you get what you pay for.
Ask "what is your printing budget? Where all does the logo go? What happens if it goes wrong?"
Clients go for the least risky options.
Know their yearly revenue and the estimates of what will be the revenue rise after you have done your fantastic illustrative and graphic design job for them. You can also consult on what area to concentrate.
This video is dedicated to a location that can be seen in the game that was released earlier in 2018, Kingdom Come: Deliverance. Me and my friend, a certified guide in Czechia, went to the monastery, that has appeared as one of the locations in the game to compare art and reality and make a short movie about similarities. Enjoy! :)
I have made a video on one of the best discoveries of these days. At least for me :D
In this video, I would like to say a few words about a handy little piece of software, that is a must have for any artist working with sets of reference pictures.
