Art Timelapse Videos!

Here's just a few of my art time-lapse videos. Be sure to follow me on Youtube for more! www.youtube.com/tsitra360








If you've ever been to a pony convention I attended, you will find some large prints I sell for $20.  They are 11x17 matte prints made to last.  But thats not the reason for its price.  Lets break that Jackson down and see where it goes.

$4 Income Taxes
$1.80 Sales Tax
$10 Expenses
$3 Savings
$1.20 Profit

There you go, thats a pretty rough estimate on what happens to that 20 you spend on my prints. There's a lot more happening in the bg of course.  Expenses is everything from travel, lodging, food, and miscellaneous overhead expenses.  If I don't watch it, that portion is easy to bloat and harder to break even.

I don't think about the finances while at conventions. Just like a con-goer, I focus on meeting people and having fun when I can. Its not fun worrying if I break even or if I gain a profit.

Hope you enjoyed this small behind the scenes look at what typically goes behind a vendor's pricing model.  Its just for fun, and I'm not trying to encourage anyone to spend money when they can't, or actually don't want anything.  I appreciate everyone's visit to my table, and especially when you buy a print because you want it.

Cya at future cons! (I should make a post to which ones I go too)

Have you thought about making a tutorial on sketching? I still haven't been able to get some angles right and you're clearly the best MLP artist out there...
Can you think about it?

I'm actually very messy with sketching, I think a better tutorial would be on how to start on the coloring.  Either way I like to start some actual tutorials on youtube.  I should plan it and create an outline, so its useful and not so long.

I'm pretty sure I watched both of the tutorials you already have. I found the outlining one useful, but the hair one I think it was, wasn't my style.
I'd honestly like any tutorial from you. Anything that'd help me I'd like.
