  1. Dabbling in Procreate now as well. Got a commission to do a gecko with a galaxy as its body. Procreate literally has a “nebula” brush. It’s just pure cheating. I played with some brushes and knocked this out in 20 minutes without bothering much. But it accidentally turned out probably good enough to use to some extent. Ridiculous short cuts. I’ve had a fair bit of work now. Definitely getting more confident with different briefs. I’ve created some guy his business cards. Accidentally stumbled on the fact I’d need to print them out CMKY and not RGB. And he
  2. Nice to know I’m not nuts. @Uncle MikeI watched it when I was stoned out of my face to prevent my spine hurting, and the psychedelic sequences still managed to raise my heart rate. It’ll be good.
  3. It’s literally Face Off. But you only get to know that when you realise you don’t think “oh, it’s so clever how an actor can pretend to be two different people”. The film is able to force you to think that Travolta’s character’s past and pain and personality are coming out of Cage’s mouth. It’s nuts.
  4. It’s a Scorsese?? Lol, ofc it’s good then. And he’s even in it. I had no idea that’s what he looked and sounded like lol.
  5. Guess I should have added mine here instead of making a massive pointless stoned thread. Bringing out the Dead Cage. John Goodman. Ving Rhames. More famous people. Not what you’ll expect. 4/5
  6. Seriously, I am going through a phase of Nicholas Cage movies I’ve never seen bursting out of the woodwork. Which has coincided with needing to watch Nicolas Cage movies. And I’d never heard of this one before and when I saw John Goodman was in it and it had the word dead in it, just wacked it on, thinking it was going to be a pretty limp scripted typical Nicholas Cage movie. But it’s so not! He’s playing that part where you are pretty sure you’re seeing the actor just be a believable version of themselves. And I’m getting big Lebowski vibes off of it. Some great “dream sequ
  7. Damn. Hate losing these legends. But at 91 he deserved the rest. I knew him first from The Sound of Music. Watching it as a kid and I always fought back tears at the end. He was just perfect in it.
  8. Trying out Art Set 4 now. Ffffffuuuuuuu...... this was practically effortless.
  9. Okay. Maybe i’ll give commissions a go. Seems stupid not to make money from something I’m doing of it will also help my “brand”. I’m not just a gecko breeder. I’m also making products and building a website that can be used by the community. And right now there’s a crested gecko morph selling for more than $21,000 per animal. So it’s a community that has money, and being “someone” in it would be really something. It’d mean a lot to me. I’ve had someone ask me to do a logo for their business. If I can get attention by taking on work like that then it’s more people who might use t
  10. Also tempted to try something like this website. https://www.redbubble.com/shop/posters?ref=home-primary-pathways Anyone done this before?
  11. Just wanted to say that this is really where I struggle. Because I would never pay for anything remotely creative, as I’d always be like “I can make something like that”. Even stuff like furniture; I’ve upcycled loads of stuff. Made the plainest of things unique. And I create “household mess solutions” out of broken bits or second hand things and hate paying for something from a shop. Even a few quid. I nearly always buy second hand cos I hate the value lost when you buy new. Whenever I look at anything I like, my first thought is “how can I do that cheaper?” So paying top dollar
  12. Thanks all. Some really good advice. @JoeKyes, I am finding I’m getting better at this particular style and bashing certain parts of it out much easier. Some, I just haven’t conjured up the method to get it down yet. I need to look at some work by other people as see how they tackle my problem areas I think. Maybe even approach them and ask them. A lot of other gecko breeders do art. There’s a crossover. My worry is I’ll give the price based on hours, and people will be like, “I’d rather you spend about 5 hours on it and it wasn’t as perfect”. Which will be impossible for m
  13. I’ve got many people asking me now. It seems stupid to not take them. But I have no idea how to price, because I’m drawing in an autistic hyper focused state for myself; sometimes through the night (14 hours straight last night). Which is fine when it’s up to me, but obviously not ideal when I’m feeling under pressure. Do you just charge for the time spent? Because I made loads of mistakes on my last one that I had to go back and redo, and am still trying to formulate a foolproof style I can bash out. I’ve heard to charge £10 per hour. But this was 17 hours of work.
  14. The iPad version doesn’t. I used to use it on P.C. That’s why I switched to Fresco. Still no magic wand tool though sadly.
  15. Thanks, I’ll take a look! For now, I just blended the hand and tidied up the rest. Hell, it’s a different style lol.
