Making this partly because I need to get that ridiculously long tag journal, and partly because I needed a quick update.
SO I've been a little bit absent the last...three or four days? This is mostly because 1. I had to work on a bulk of personal commissions that really wore me out (deadlines man) and 2. because the Internet has been funky and there's been a little bit of an outage. Tomorrow everything should be back to normal though.
I also took a little bit of a break because I just really needed a couple of days of rest, since I really burnt myself by drawing pretty much nonstop for almost two weeks. I know I haven't posted that much (again I had an agreement with the commissioner not to post them for a while) but I pretty much worked myself into exhaustion. Which it was awesome, but at the same time when you don't feel hunger pains like me and you don't sleep, it's not really the best.
But other than that, these last couple of days have been peaceful. I was a little bit ill today, but I'm excited to get some commissions/trades done, and I've added onto my program to improve my productivity (baby steps, but I'm getting there!) Pretty soon I'm hoping to get to the point where I've cut out most/all activities that don't benefit me, and I'm hoping to promote myself enough to be able to make a little bit more money. So that would be awesome.
Also I've been marathoning Naruto again, and I gotta be honest. I know a lot of people think it's silly and don't like it, and yeah it can be pretty cheesy, but watching it again I've realized it's a pretty cool show. Dee is watching it for the first time with me (though she's seen a little bit of it) and she's totally into it, too. I'm not even out of the Chuunin exam arc, and it's just been a real blast.
I'm going to turn 22 on the 17th this month, and it's really weird to think about. I'm not sure what we're going to be doing yet, last year we went to Vegas but I'm not sure what we have planned. I think I just want to go out to dinner and get some cool Pokemon merch or something instead of doing the whole vacation thing, I don't know yet.
Anyway, I miss you guys a ton. Can't wait until I can start browsing through art and talking to people again! Artwork
So yeah, now that those private commissions are out of the way, I'm going to be wrapping up the few speed paintings I have left and then I'm going to start alternating between owed artwork and personal projects. I might take a few more speed paintings, I'm not sure yet. I just really want to draw Pokemon stuff lately too, so I'll probably pick that up sometime this month.
ALSO I nearly forgot to mention...I am working on the free sample artwork I talked about before. I have a few of them finished, I just ran into some unexpected problems that caused me to need to crank out a lot of commissions at once, so that prevented me from doing that. I am working on them, and in fact I still have slots remaining! But yeah, I appreciate you guys being so patient with me as far as art has been concerned these last few days, I just needed a little bit of rest.
