All right, so I’ve been asked for advice on pricing and the business of freelancing, and rather than try to somehow telepathically communicate links via Tumblr’s message system that doesn’t allow links, I thought I might as well put together a post of resources for figuring out the practical side of being an artist. Because this is stuff everyone needs to know anyway, right?

First off, a super-useful book for freelancers is “The Graphic Artists Guild Handbook: Pricing & Ethical Guidelines”. The prices may be skewed to the USA, but they give a good ballpark idea of approximately what’s expected in the market. So it’s a good starting point for figuring out your own prices and not ending up with something completely whacked out. The book also has tons of sample forms and information on best practices, which can be even more useful than the prices.

HANDY WEBSITES

Here’s some sites that often have good articles on the business of art and the finer points of freelancing:

artpact.com
theartorder.com
muddycolors.blogspot.com

FORUMS
Potentially useful forums (mostly concept art oriented, but they sometimes cover more general things too.)

CGTalk (AKA the forums on cgsociety.org)
polycount.com
penciljack.com
ConceptArt.org

* Yes I know ConceptArt.org has had a lot of political and technical turmoil lately, but the archives have a wealth of useful material. What I usually do is use Google to search the CA archives: type the topic you want + “ConceptArt.org” + optionally the section you think the topic is in (the “Art Discussion” section used to have a lot of stuff on the practical side of art.)

CGHub used to be another one, but it’s officially dead, alas. There’s a new one called "DrawCrowd", but right now it looks like it’s mostly for art sharing/eye candy and not so much for discussion/info.

OTHER RESOURCES
If you’ve got the money to spend, this is supposed to be pretty good:
theartoffreelancing.com

And it looks like there will be a useful video or two posted here (coming soon, but I have my eye on it:)
artconnectionacademy.com

And a spot of all-around good advice, with cartoons!

I’m sure I’m missing a lot more resources, if I think of more I’ll add them!

Let us not forget one of the most important things about the Universal Monsters era: The Creature From The Black Lagoon was created by a woman, Milicent Patrick.

Nearly unheard of at the time, ms Patrick is responsible for creating one of the single most recognizable characters, not only in Universal history but in all of film history. She was an incredible talent and she should be honored as such.

I had the VHS with the episodes featuring these villains and I used to watch it over and over when I was a tiny Tofu Jr
I’m pretty sure they had a huge influence on how I design characters
