What Progress?

Thoughts

I'm tired! It's been a very busy week. I've gotten some major projects done and others haven't gone so well.


What I'm Creating

I just finished up 8 images for my black and white portfolio. I will be adding more to this, but I feel like 8 images is a minimum for any portfolio. You can see what I've done here: http://daniduck.com/b%26w I plan to do some grayscale images as well, but I have to start somewhere!

In other news I've already sent my portfolio out to one company digitally. Before I did this I went back over my portfolio. I saw a lot of images that had to be re-edited for one reason or another. Some of them were too blurry/pixelated, others had white around the edges, and a couple had pencil lines (from drawing the border around the illustration). I think I caught everything this time! Glad I got all those little things fixed. This all delayed me from sending out my work, but I want to put my best foot forward!

Schedule

I'm not sure that this schedule is really based on any real dates anymore. 😂 Actually I'm not too far off right now. I will likely be able to have my post cards done by April 1st and possibly I'll be sending out submission packages by the 9ths, but I feel like I won't be able to finish any color spreads this week. The black and white work I've been doing has taken up a TON of my time. Mainly because I did them digitally and I haven't done that in a while. I also am figuring out a new program. I will be faster with future digital work because I learned a lot this week. 

April 1st  - Have postcard finished and sent out for printing
April 8th - 2-3 color spreads finished or almost finished Delayed
April 9th - Send out 5-10  Submission Packages

Back to it. I'll see you again in a week with another update!
