Listening to ---> Maria Mena - It Took Me By SurpriseMah Life---
I haven't been very active these past few days... maybe weeks. It's because I have a lot going on right now. A lot that cuts into my routine. I like my routine. Anything out of my routine bothers me. A few of you might know that I have Drivers Ed going on right now. That's the big thing. It's not usually in my routine. I've tried, but he makes the lessons random. Might be Monday one week but then the next week it'll be Friday. Sure, my work hours aren't exactly the same either. HOWEVER, I know exactly what I'm doing, how I do it, and the worst thing that happens is that I get a bad customer. No big deal. While with these drivers lessons I have no idea what to expect. Okay, I have an idea but it's not like it's the same every time like work is. I hate to admit it but I have bad anxiety. Really bad. I get anxiety attacks, or better known as panic attacks. When I have them I can't breathe, I stammer something aweful, I need to be left alone and sit in a corner for a couple of minutes. Drivers ed is stressing me out to the point where I am starting to have them more and more. Why? It's out of my routine. And I know there is a test at the end of it for my G2. So, my stress level is through the roof right now and will be for the next few weeks up to a month till I can get this damn test over with. Please forgive me if my trades are late. Please forgive me if I can't do your requests when you ask or new trades. I just can't right now. I can't have even more stress added onto what I already have right now. By the way, I've probably made it sound like my anxiety is souly from the drivers ed, but that's not true. There's a lot going on right now. Getting ready for college is another big one. So, if you've been wondering what's going on, that's pretty much it. That's why I haven't really submitted much in the last couple of weeks. I haven't even really been responding to my RP's as of late. I'm sorry guys. I just need to get by this bit before I get comfortable again. I just want my routine back. :I Commissions;
I think I might start to take commissions, mainly because I've been asked so much as of lately. However, this does NOT mean that they are open. I'll announce when I am through a submition of a journal update and/or deviantations. And at that only a few spots would have to be opened and it would be a first come first serve thing. :I Though I don't think people want commissions from me so bad that the moment I open anything up that they'd be taken right away. So, no worries.
Pricing--- Shoot. I dunno. I do have a paypal account, but I don't think that's fair for those who don't have any money to spare or an account themselves. So points would be the only thing I'd consider accepting from anyone. I don't have a set price on anything... sooo it would be left up to discussion between I and the person wanting one.
In short... I have no damn idea what to do about commissions right now. :/ I'm on the fence about it and well, I don't want to price my shit too high for what it's worth. I'll have to think more about it. I'll sleep on it.
I love trades! Hell, I'd except them anytime if I wasn't so busy sometimes! It's really all about that. Timing. Ask me, I might just say yes. But the odd time I'd have to say no because of prior promises. If you see that I have a list all written up in my journal of people waiting for commissions/trades/requests to be done then it'll most likely be a no. But if you see there are only a few or none then I will most likely say yes! However, that doesn't mean it'll be done right away. Could take me that afternoon of being asked, or it'll be a few weeks. I can't say for sure, but just ask! I'm not this horrible person who will straight up shoot yah down.
One more thing about Trades. I DON'T CARE IF YOU'RE A GOOD ARTIST OR NOT! Any art style. Any skill level. HOWEVER, if we do a trade I want it to be YOUR ART!!! Not a lineart you coloured. Not a wolf/cat maker made to look like one of my characters. I want YOUR art. Not someone else's. Please understand this because I don't think an ART TRADE is a legit one unless it's your work. I don't care if you draw stick figures. If we have an art trade it better be an ART TRADE.
These are always fun to do. And it's just another thing you need to ask me about. Don't be afraid to send me a note or a comment asking if I could do one for you. But, like the trades, if I'm busy I'll most likely have to say no. I hate saying no, but I can't overload myself with work like that. ALSO, if its a request don't expect anything big. Like a group picture of 5+ wolves with a background and shit. No. That is not going to happen unless I am in the best damn mood ever. Maybe for an art trade, but a request needs to be something small like 2 wolves or less without a background or shading done. Just a flat character image. So PLEASE don't ask for a mural. It won't happen...
So, yah guys! That's about it! I will probably be doing more Adoptables in the future and trying to do different animals down the road other then just wolves. I know I draw a lot of wolves but I can do other stuff, too! Maybe not as well... but I can! I try anyways. I need to practice more, but hey, I'm getting there. ;3
