Digital Study

I worked for almost 10 hours today and just got around to doing this. I had it in my mind all day and it took a lot of discipline not to just quit working and play with this. Discipline is something that comes up quite a bit as a freelance artist. There can be so many distractions at home but I have learned to stay focused. I keep fairly regular business hours, making myself available to my clients when they are working is important to me. It seems to keep my clients happy. Sometimes working on weekends is necessary to help a project along or to help the client out in a pinch. Recently a person who works at Starbucks asked me what I do for a living. I told her I work at home as a freelance artist. She is a photographer and said she could never work at home and stay focused. I replied that a mortgage and having a family can keep you very focused. It certainly works for me.

The piece above was done in Photoshop. I am working on a character design to yesterdays sketch.
