Jerzy’s begun a new comics project, and it’s been a while since we’ve had an art demo on the LIA Cast, so this week join Jerzy and Rob for a demonstration and discussion on designing sound elements in your comics using Clip Studio Paint.
Talking about client relations and project management on the Lean Into Art Cast!
We've talked before on the about using freelance gigs as an opportunity to experiment and learn new styles or skills. Recently, Rob took on a freelance job where he only allowed himself 4 hours to complete the project. As we've said before, limitations breed creativity, and Rob discovered some pretty interesting things about the creative process (and himself) in meeting his tight deadline while satisfying his client.
We all know that part of shipping a thing is putting our heads down and doing the work. This can often be a slog. The work seems to happen slowly, and while everyone else is sailing through their projects (or celebrating their completion), you’re still there, turning that crank.
Join Rob and Jerzy for a discussion on how they face periods where they have to keep their heads down and do the work.
When you think of art style, what comes to mind? Is it the kinds of lines you use? The color palette? The compositions? Should the style be the creative restriction of a project, or should the project dictate the style? And if the old saying is true: “your style is what you do wrong,” is there any point in striving to find a style?
Join us for a discussion on how we’ve thought about art style throughout our careers and how the constraints of bandwidth, resources, and projects have affected them.
