Pictures and PaintingsIt's been a while since I've updated here in any capacity other than posting paintings or drawings. I have to say this about Deviantart, there's a lot of images on it. And a lot of them that float through my inbox, I have no idea now who they're from or why I'm watching the submitter. So I'll be culling my watchlist soon. You won't be offended, I reason, because I likely haven't commented on your work in about two years or so.Pictures and Paintings by seneschal
I've updated my website at LydiRaeBlack.com
with a different structure and new paintings. I've been learning how to do a website by simply using whatever I can to make it work, so if you find an error, please let me know.
Works in Progress at Four Days A Week
If you're interested in seeing any of the paintings I'm working on, please click on this picture to go to my blog. I try to update it as often as I make any progress, which is sometimes really often, and other times can sit for weeks.
Here's a current project
SAY NO TO FREE ARTEvery day, there are more and more posts on here seeking "artists" for everything from auto graphics to comic books to corporate logo designs. More people are finding themselves in need of some form of illustrative service.SAY NO TO FREE ART by PamzyLove
But what they're NOT doing, unfortunately, is realizing how rare someone with these particular talents can be.
To those who are "seeking artists", let me ask you; How many people do you know, personally, with the talent and skill to perform the services you need? A dozen? Five? One? none?
More than likely, you don't know any. Otherwise, you wouldn't be posting on here to find them.
And this is not really a surprise.
In this country, there are almost twice as many neurosurgeons as there are professional illustrators. There are eleven times as many certified mechanics. There are SEVENTY times as many people in the IT field.
So, given that they are less rare, and therefore less in demand, would it make sense to ask your mechanic to work on your car for free? Woul
