Man, it’s getting to be a hassle to find art time nowadays! This started out as an example; draw a scene as an exercise. I had no idea what would come from it!
After posting it into several groups that I’m a member of, someone contacted me and wanted to know my “page rate” . Durr?
I asked others about this innocently expecting a simple answer. Because I never learn. Because I believe in humans.
Because I’m dumb.
Next thing I know, I’m being blasted with hate mail! “You didn’t invent #killbill”, “that’s intellectual property”, “you’re a hack”….it went on and on.
Ugh. “Okay so BECAUSE someone liked my practice page, they asked me to draw THEIR ORIGINAL COMIC. Also, learn reading comprehension, assholes”, I replied.
So, I finally got some decent advice and discovered that the person asking had two other artists who hadn’t been paid for work rendered. I gave up.
I’ll draw what I want.
