So, as prolific or working artists, we all want to save time right?
Well, there is one thing we can do to ease off the burden of work.
It’s called batching. And we do this in our daily life too.
Laundry to Cooking, it’s way of doing a bunch of things in one go and make the rest of the day or week easier.
Like, for artist they can do it like this.
Creating a Series of work to be scanned and processed once a week. Or answering client’s calls once a day or few days only. As you see the effect of well, doing the whole process for small mundane tasks are well, a waste of time really. It’s the concept of rounding up those small mundane seemingly unimportant granted tasks that makes thing more effective and efficient.
For example. If one have a bunch of rough sketches, they simply scan them all in one go and have it all done.
Maybe there is a production of comics going on. Do the steps on all pages phase by phase.
Pencils for day 1-3, Inking for Day 4-7, and colors for Day 8-10. And that is how batching can make process and production of things better.
Batching is all about the ease of either.
either way, if an artist batches their work in series or processing a bunch of small works for scanning. It’s the most effective and efficient way to free up time.
Like, let’s be honest, we all have better things to do right??
As Tim Ferris puts it.
