So I've been able to put a sizable dent in my commission back log, which I am very happy about. If you are still waiting on a commission I promise it's in the final stages (or should be) but please feel free to message me again, and check up. I'd hate to think I'd left anyone out, or forgotten anyone.
There are a few note worthy changes that are going to be happening in regards to my work in the future. The first is that I'm going to be getting away from doing inks and line work. I'll mostly be doing pencil and colors, as is evident in my latest work. I feel that ink and hard lines seem to give my art a more severe and aggressive look, which is not my intention most of the time. I will still be posting a few ink'd pics that I have in my backlog, but I'm going to be getting away from it in the future.
The other thing that I'm going to be making a conscience effort to stop doing is fan art, or more specifically art of established characters. (i.e. cartoon characters or characters from books, TV or movies) Mainly because people seem to take it far too personally when I feature them in my work. I often get very aggressive angry messages in defense of certain characters, mostly along the lines of "you ruined my childhood" kind of stuff. Although I agree that an artist should not be dictated to or intimidated into changing their work, It's honestly not worth all the hassle. Mostly tho, I've been wanting to focus more on my own characters and personalized creative work anyway, and this is as good an excuse as any to do that.
In regards to my personal work, I've not made much progress. I've been trying to focus more on getting my commission work done. I'm now facing the daunting task of coloring 35 pages, which is a Herculean task at the best of times. Now that money is becoming more of an issue again, I'm not sure when I'll have the time to get it all done. We'll see how things turn out I guess.
That's about all for now. As always, thank you all so much for enjoying the work that I create and for those of you who comment and send me positive and supportive messages. You are all lovely people and you deserve only good things!
