My first real attempt at acrylics...
and i don't want to seem like an asshole... but isn't the flag backwards? I'm pretty sure the stars go at the front of the uniform (on both sleeves), so it looks like the flag is flapping in the breeze when he runs.... (just something i picked up on Mail Call)
I'd buy it.
Wow, very nice!!
I used a photograph from a book of military uniforms as a reference, so I assume the flag is correct . I did this painting for a toy company I interviewed with. The job was doing package design for their line of military action figures. I didn't take it because they lowballed me on salary -- but at least now I know I can paint
okay (see, it was just me being an ass). It looks amazing!
Did you counter offer on salary?
They initially offered $10/hour plus benefits, saying they normally start people at $8/hour . I told them that was unacceptable for someone with a BFA and talent -- cocky, I know, but their offer was ridiculous. I asked for $14/hour, they countered with $11/hour -- I said no thanks.
It would have been an amazing job, but I just couldn't settle for that salary. I realize Iowa isn't exactly a hot-bed of culture and industry, but it's not a third world country. It's ridiculous that I make more money doing T-shirt designs. This is the parent company Alpha International
Artists get paid shit, especially just starting out. Your best bet is to get a "real" job and freelance.
That's exactly what I'm doing
Me as well, wanna see my paintings? I will PM you my site if you do.
