- Working an image
- Bulk pricing is bullshit
- The industry
In a fit of hopelessness after having the baby, I nearly decided to do just that. I chickened out and instead I just switched usernames on DA, abandoned updating my website and have switched to a DA portfolio site. Immediately got a DD and some great work through it so it turned out for the better. Felt like I'd be an ass to delete all of my messages and couldn't decide how to choose what people to thank so I began posting thanks to everyone who faved or devwatched me. It's quickly become some sort of obsessive compulsive problem. Finally under a thousand messages. Apparently thanking someone a week later for a fave they've forgotten cause them to visit your page and fave and devwatch a lot more. Good trick to remember for the future. I feel a bit like Sisyphus though.

Anyways, despite current plans I've fallen back into doing NDA work. Not the sort of stuff that's going to make prints but it actually does fill a hole in my portfolio (there I go with my fxcking excuses again). Doing environments does really help you to understand the importance of focal points and how to create them so I can't say I'm not learning. Working on environments reminds me of how much I do not know. I've done all sorts of prep for a full sized oil painting so hopefully I'll have that on here in a couple of weeks.
