I've started doing panels at conventions that talk about how to start out as a furry artist, and how to improve, AND customer/artist relations. Feel free to give 'em a look over, they're for the community! c:
If you have any critique about the information I've got in there, please don't be afraid to email me or comment here about it! I used the best of what I've gotten through my experiences and this community so educate me!
The articles and accompanying worksheet are linked here in my journal : http://www.furaffinity.net/journal/2531715/
