Tools: Photoshop

I've have had this doodle knocking round the hard drive since digital-time began and have now finally admitted to myself that it wasn't going anywhere, despite liking the feel of it. Somehow couldn't find inspiration to develop a bigger peice for it to occupy. All the same, he looks happy enough.

Stephen smacks it to ya one more time!

Do not give your work away for free, friends. Repeat: DO NOT GIVE YOUR WORK AWAY FOR FREE!

I would write my own post on this, but for now here's the great illustrator Stephen Silver giving you what you need to hear. He directs it towards art students - and that's understandable because they're often new to the commercial world - but we all need the reminder because we can all be tempted to let our standards slip. I know I previously linked another of Stephen's videos where he gives similar advice - but it bears repeating because so many of us are intent on learning the hard way. Heed that man!

(Just saying - slightly earthy language, if you're easily offended by such stuff.)
