Art's party


This was from a party that I worked at; I drew all the heads from life at the party, then superimposed them on Hirshfeld bodies in photoshop as per my client's request and filled in any blanks with my own bodies and/ or background where needed. This took much longer than anticipated, and probably would've worked better if I was allowed to draw my own bodies, but it was an interesting experiment anyway.
We had a discrepency with the price of the extra work, but I think we resolved it in a reasonable fashion. My client felt free to criticize my work to get leway for the comprimised price and prided himself on the fact that he was a businessman. I'm not often fond of businessmen.

It stinks when business gets in the way, but the end result is gorgeous. It really appears like the extra effort was worth it. Nice Job!

Thanks, Rob. Yeah, we had a deal where he was going to pay me per hour for the extra work which I assumed wouldn't be more than a couple of hours, but turned into much more than that. After it was finished, I started to tell him how much time I spent on it, and how I wasn't going to charge him that amount, but he didn't let me finish my sentence and got defensive and argumentative over the assumed price. It all worked out anyway, but people should learn to listen first, nonetheless.

Dude, regardless of all the bureaucratic crap you went through, it came out awesome! I like it very much. And it does look a little Hirshfeld-esque. Nice work!

Thanks, Jesse. Most of those bodies are Hirshfeld bodies.
