Thought I'd share some of my current work frustration with you all.... I have a client who gave me a brief with lots of detail and specific scene descriptions of what they want me to draw, and they're complaining that a lot of those elements aren't clear enough in the roughs I produced for them.
With that in mind, this is literally the size of the artwork spaces, to print.
Ughhh I feel your frustration. I used to work for a big newspaper doing mostly ads and sometimes people wanted a novel printed on a postage stamp sized ad space. And then they complained why did I make it so crowded..
I feel like I'm really getting good at what I do now. Not only is my latest track probably the best-sounding thing I've produced, but a client didn't want any revisions done to the last mixing job I did. It was a nice little confidence booster.

You're both too kind.
Update time.. this is just a mock-up with what I have so far but it should give an idea of the final image.... I probably won't go with the 'Hannibal' text but will keep the quote as that swuare looks a bit empty without. Obviously I still have lots of the chapel at the top to finish....
I'm also tempted to add reflections of other characters in the glass (this is Hannibal Lecter [as portrayed by Mads Mikkelsen] in his prison cell, if you can't tell) though it depends if it over-crowds the image or not.
Also, if anyone's interested in how the process, this is the "rough" version of the image I created beforehand!

chesh: Hey rye, under the "Dreadlock FAQ" >>> "The Basics" there is information on washing on the bottom. In my experience so far it has been best to wash my dreads when they get itchy and use a dry shampoo to help with the oils that are produced naturally.

SketchyMagpie: Hey. It differs on hair type but generally speaking, you can lose up to between 25-50% of the length. Most people will be around the 25%-35% mark, ish.

FriendlyGoblin: Hey guys, I'm thinking of getting dreadlocks and I was wondering how much they'd shrink. I have medium-thick hair that is decently damaged and is 20" thick from scalp to tip. I'm also white. I'm thinking of getting them so they're life sized ruler

littl3birdy: Hey nessdeyali , bumps and loops are part of the process. Combing out the dreads and restarting will just lead to the same result. Check out some of the timelines here and you will see lots of bumps.

50locks: Is there an app for this? Its really hard to use on my phone lol

sketchymagpie: Hey V. It does occasionally, but the problem is that a lot of people use Tapatalk to access the site on their phones and you can't see this chat box on that, so of the small number of active users here currently, even less of them know this exists ha.
