Making a journal to excuse an incredibly unprofessional way of handling a private commission is a really bad way to respond to something and shows no will to improve something.
Preston still hasn’t learned the basic measurements for the human body where the entire body is roughly 7 1/2 heads tall give or take on the age/ gender of the character.
Even in cartoons the character have to be made so that they don’t look like fucking freaks with their limbs and body out of proportion.
Carl or what ever the fuck his name is ( I don’t care at this point ) stands at a magical 4 1/2 heads tall in most panels, now I would be forgiving of this if Carl was designed to be very short, BUT HE’S IS MADE TO LOOK TALLER THAT THE REST OF THE CHARACTERS IN THIS FUCKING COMIC SERIES.
I doesn’t help that Preston make the arms to fucking short either, arms when you are standing upright your finger tips should reach middle of your thighs not at the hip.
And of course, I will always get “but how will this help new artists?
” Well, I’m a firm believer of making mistakes being a good way to learn and, even better, observing other’s mistakes and learning from them to save yourself some trouble.
When you’re catering to someone who has invested money into you, it is important to do the best to satisfy them, And this isn’t a very easy thing for most people, you might deal with someone who can be an ass to you or doesn’t communicate well with you.
Of course, you have the right to deny working for some people, but when you do work for them, showing competence and commitment will reward the both of you.
Fortunately, artists-beware is where these issues are discussed about along with warnings about both customers and caterers and can really save yourself from getting into huge trouble.
