Studies and sketchess

This is a study I started and then couple old sketches that I wanted to upload but so many things to take care of. Also yesterday was my birthday which ended up pretty randomly. Well not that random but it started with me being at home and then ended up in a birthday cake and dinner even though we had to drop someone off xD. So yea I wasn't expecting cause my family had some plans and my man had some other plan and I have no clue how different plans randomly came together. I got some purple flowers and bllllllllllllue e roses! I looooooooooove purples and blues <3 faaaaaaaves and another gift too. here are my flowies and gift from la famalia!!

freelance stuff and contracts you should sign while taking freelance

This is one of the freelance I worked on now im allowed to show it. Its for Cryptozoic entertainment. I have done couple other work for them but they aren't out yet. Hopefully I can upload them soon. So since we are here showing our freelance stuff, I wanted to mention about contract work. This isn't something recent but from 2013. It is the time, when I was partly looking for freelance. I came across this company called sky soul. The guy I talked to his name was Justin and he seemed pretty nice. They gave me a contract for 5 pieces which means I get paid after completing all 5 pieces (please don't ever sign contract like these). Firstly, it was pretty low paid and their demands for that rate were pretty high. Even though the example he showed me weren't that good. There was a lot of fixing they asked for which is fine I guess, comes with the work turf. After completing the first piece I started with the 2nd and completed that one too. During this time I was also working at Kabam and I told this guy that I am. After he received the file for 2nd psd he just stopped contacting me for the third one. He never got back to me. I sent him like more than 10 emails or so I believe on his email, on the website info email and to some of his colleagues email. So I started looking for some artist who have worked for them. I contacted them to contact this guy on my behalf and tell him to get back to me. So two of the kind artist gladly did. He told them because I responded late one the 2nd piece ( which I already talked to him about and he okayed it) he doesn't want to work with me anymore. The artist told them whatever the reason was you should be professional and talk to her rather than ignoring the thing. He denied he got any emails from me and even though the artist told him he still didn't get back to me. I then decided it was futile to pursue this and that I should let this go. I talked to one of the artist who told me that they made them copy legend of cryptids stuff and change very minor things. So basically they were just making bad copies of the legend of cryptids cards. boooooooooooooooooooooooo The moral of the story always ask for separate contract per piece unless you really trust the client you are working for. Anyways here the piece, hope you enjoy.

Sketches and what not

Just been busy with work but occasionally sketching in between to take a break every once in a while. I have been thinking about uploading for so long but i always get lazy in doing that. There a lot more which i need to take photos of and upload, but for now this will do. Just been trying improve while tackling work and different sort of subject matter which I haven't done before. Things been seeming a little better because I'm trying to take point of view of different artist friends. Seeing and taking their approach open up a lot of different dimensions which I didn't even think of. xD Forgive my dirty sketches because i draw in whatever is around me not only just a sketchbook xD.
