Well, I've gotten a lot set up in the past few days. All of this was put on the back burner while I tried to push to get into an art school. Now that I've turned in my updated portfolio, I have time to sit back and answer my requests for services.
I've spread my roots, so to speak. I've got profiles on: LinkedIn, Skype and Mumble. By spread my roots, I mean planted seeds. I'm working on building relationships and getting references so my transition from school into the industry will be smoother.
At the moment, I'm working with a studio called Abyssal Studio. You could probably find them here on GameDev. Now this is where my question comes in. Although I'm working with Abyssal Studio, I'm trying to get some side freelance work done. Do you think what I've done up to this point and my choice to freelance while in a studio good ideas?
