As an animation student I can agree that This is EXTREMELY useful. Thank you kindly mewfeuille for submitting the link. Here is a preview of the reference videos that this website has to offer.
This website tracks frame numbers in the corner of their videos, which gives you a idea of how quickly each movement takes place (by comareing numbers) or knowing exactly what frame in the video a specific pose takes place in.
Okay I understand artists charging more than mass producers for items. But your prices are a little high. Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.
I’ve said this a hundred times. Other artists have said this. People who aren’t even artists but care about others being able to support themselves from their work have said this. This is my job where I make my full time living. My prices are the way they are for a reason. And even if it weren’t my full time job I am performing a specialized skill producing luxury goods that takes time, money, and years to perfect. I deserve to be compensated for that work even if the money doesn’t go to basic survival necessities.
My products may be out of your price range, which is okay. That just means you aren’t my target market. But that doesn’t mean they are overpriced. And that doesn’t make it okay to walk around telling others what they should charge. There are a hundred resources on why artists price the way they do out there, please read the following and take some time to educate yourself:
- Another blog post from Mill Girl who writes further on what goes into pricing, arts and crafts as a luxury item, what you support when you purchase handmade, and who/what you harm when you devalue handmade.
- Here’s an article on pricing as a freelancer and industry standards. For the record I consider myself under the category “Someone with a few years of experience and a good portfolio: $50 - $85+/hr.” I can promise I am charging nowhere near $50 an hour, and close to $25 since I supplement my income with “passive income” from pattern sales.
And that is just a few of the resources out there available. I sincerely hope you will read them and stop spreading negative attitudes on pricing.
shoutout to all the girls + women who have thick, dark, and abundant body hair and have to spend time and energy shaving every single day if they don’t want to be harassed by loved ones + strangers alike
shoutout to all the girls + women who decided its not worth their time, even if they only skip sometimes, and endure criticism, harassment, and stigma as the price for their own freedom of time + comfort
my cat Mitey is missing! we’re going to put up signs in the area and check local shelters, but i wanted to try the internet as well.
she’s a small black/white/orange tortoiseshell/calico, no collar, friendly but skittish, distinctive triangular spot on her nose like a jack-o-lantern. she was lost near the corner of 20th and mission street. she has a funny meow that sounds like she’s gargling.
if you’ve seen her, please get in touch with me through my submit box!
it genuinely baffles me that men don’t want women in positions of power because “they’re slaves to their hormones/emotions” and yet one of the first lines of defence when it comes to rape cases tends to be “it’s hardly his fault look at what she was wearing how could we expect him to control himself”
Gee, it’s almost as if misogyny isn’t based in logic.
