Guess what’s the worst way to assign a task? I have experience on this, so I’ll share this with you.
The discussion goes something along this way:
Juuso: “The 3d character model needs to be bulky. Bit like Hulk would be.”
Artist: “Oh, like that big”
Juuso: “Well, not that huge guy, but you know… muscular shoulders. Head low.”
Juuso: “You know. Like a pro Wrestler type of character. But like Hulk. And needs to look cool. But not too cool. And he also needs to wear a dagger and rusty armor and so on…”
Artist: “I’ll do what you want master! I’ll get right into it”
Well, I’m not that bad at giving tasks actually (I’m pretty good at explaining things I believe), but same way, I never hear artist saying that last line either…
Ending a task assignment into a “and so on” is like expecting the other person to be a mind reader – I know that won’t work.
