Just curious when submitting dailies, how important is the writeup that accompanies it? Should I spend hours editing it or simply let the art speak for itself?

Any thoughts from printed artists? How much time/effort do you throw into it?

I know in the writing world, the pitch is near everything but I haven't felt that here... am I shooting my foot by shooting from the hip?

I always thought it was yaw that mattered.




(insert snark disclaimer)

My speech is not parsing. I am speaking in ellipsis.

Sometimes I just put a smiley face in the space for the explanation...

I kind of think the art should speak for itself, so I usually don't put more than a quick line or two in there. I haven't submitted too many dailies (10-ish maybe?), but that's what I do.

Agreed, let the design do most of the talking. It should work with no words whatsoever. The only exception is if you're referencing something that we might not be privy to. In that case feel free to provide the context.
