Art Commission Guidelines + Tutorial Books
« on: March 31, 2008, 07:16:40 am »
Something that I found long ago on LJ and thought all the artists here would find very useful. ;)

Artist and Buyer Guides - How Not to Get Burned.
http://community.livejournal.com/artists_beware/140869.html

The Business of Being an Artist.
http://community.livejournal.com/artists_beware/169535.html
http://books.google.com/books?id=KIJxDc7MmZUC&pg=PA54&lpg=PA54&dq=sample+art+licensing+contract&source=web&ots=6jdZtmJ0N2&sig=fMXmMl81SP3OD4A1KHSF7URN3JU#PPP1,M1
While the book mostly talks about non-furry artwork and trying to sell art and get recognised, It looks like a lot of stuff mentioned in the Contents might benefit furry artists as well. Might be worth taking a look into at your next trip to the bookstore. ;)

Thanks for posting this! I read the whole LJ entry and it was very helpful. When I get time, I'm going to write up a terms of service.

Artwork Tutorial Books

From time to time, people ask "How do you draw this" and "How do you draw that" topics. I thought I'd take some time out and share some titles of books I've had in my possesion that might help fellow furs out with their artwork. ;) Check your nearest bookstore, library, or Amazon.com for them.

Wasn't this posted somewhere around here before? Either way, good information!

I recommend it for stickiness :)

The 'Freaks!' book is only good for eye candy. It's one of those that jumps from skeleton to DETAILED DRAWING.

I'd suggest investing in  anatomy books and how to draw HUMAN books before jumping into adding animal bits and pieces to them.
