Here I am, a month after. I was able to finish lesson 5 and spend my credits yesterday before they would expire today. I think I'll try to keep on and start the 250 cylinders challenge.

From what I've seen of your work you have a lot to offer; you have much room to grow and so do I.

I consider this as a great compliment. Thank you.

Would you (yes YOU) at least consider making a contribution to the collab at some point?

I would like to make a digital contribution if you want, since right now I'm more into digital art than I am with traditional. I don't recommend you to send anything this way, it would be such a pain for both of us, but I am grateful for the offer anyway.

Way to go, Rhyldur.

I would like to make a digital contribution

Thank you for accepting my invitation. Yes, you can contribute digitally; but please wait till the current artist is finished and I update the online record; the current artist may also pass the book to another artist before I get it back. I'll reach out to you when the book is available for you to contribute. Here is the book introduction. Would you be willing to provide any public contact info for the record if other artists want to get in touch?

Hi Nathan! I hope you are doing good. I took a look at your webpage and I'm glad you are also doing some letter artwork and logos. They look really nice.

As for the book, do not worry, I shall await my turn. No hurry at all.

I read the introduction and everything looks fine to me.

Would you be willing to provide any public contact info for the record if other artists want to get in touch?

I'm a very introvert person so I'm not comfortable with sharing public contact info. BUT, recently I've been thinking of creating and anonymous Instagram account just for sharing some of my art without being worry that anybody around my surroundings knows it's me. When I come up with a good name (which is a difficult matter for me rn haha) I'll create it and reach out to you.

Hi Rhyldur, I am doing well. Just recovered from some sickness and feeling pretty good now. Thanks for the compliments. I've started freelancing on Upwork and have found it important to create specific portfolios for the kinds of work I want to do; so I focused more on letters for a bit as I do enjoy that.

The book is ready for you :) You can begin creating your contribution whenever you're ready. When you're finished you can either send the final art to my email or upload it somewhere for me to download (e.g. Imgur). Please make your art with a ratio of 8:11 (landscape) as those are the dimensions of the book. Get creative and have fun.

Sorry for any confusion. What I meant by "public contact info" is anything you feel comfortable sharing publicly. It need not contain any personally identifiable info. If you go through with the anon account, I'd be interested to see more of your work there; though, I don't personally have an Instagram account, so I'd be limited to seeing only your most recent posts. Might I recommend an ArtStation account or something of the like which would not limit what non-users can see (Instagram limits scrolling and clicking posts)?

If you know another artist who would like to contribute, go ahead and invite them to follow your lead.

The recommendation below is an advertisement. Most of the links here are part of Amazon's affiliate program (unless otherwise stated), which helps support this website. It's also more than that - it's a hand-picked recommendation of something I've used myself. If you're interested, here is a full list.
PureRef

PureRef

This is another one of those things that aren't sold through Amazon, so I don't get a commission on it - but it's just too good to leave out. PureRef is a fantastic piece of software that is both Windows and Mac compatible. It's used for collecting reference and compiling them into a moodboard. You can move them around freely, have them automatically arranged, zoom in/out and even scale/flip/rotate images as you please. If needed, you can also add little text notes.

When starting on a project, I'll often open it up and start dragging reference images off the internet onto the board. When I'm done, I'll save out a '.pur' file, which embeds all the images. They can get pretty big, but are way more convenient than hauling around folders full of separate images.

Did I mention you can get it for free? The developer allows you to pay whatever amount you want for it. They recommend $5, but they'll allow you to take it for nothing. Really though, with software this versatile and polished, you really should throw them a few bucks if you pick it up. It's more than worth it.
