Well, we're finally into the new year and I've got two topics to bring up today that I have been getting asked about a lot =)
First off, a fursona, lots furs keep asking me what my fursona is. At this point I actually don't have one u.u and I was debating on if I should change this or not. My problem is that I would most associate myself as a wolf, as that is what my spirit totem is and it's actually pretty meaningful to me.
-- For those wondering years back I was going through a rough time in life, lots of complicated stuff was happening, but most of all I hated my family and everything to do with them, and just wanted to get away from them. Then a wolf started showing up in every dream and nightmare I was having, it was like time would stop (in the dream) I thought this creature was what was giving me bad dreams, but another friend of mind suggested in all seriousness that it may be a spirit totem wanting to show me a message that I needed to understand. That wolf represented the importance of family. Indeed at the time I was having a lot of issues with my family, and if a 'spirit messenger' was indeed telling me that I needed to treasure them and see them as important instead of loathing and despising them, then perhaps it was best for me to mend my relationships with them, so I did, and they shortly became the most important thing in the world to me, and my reasons so hating them so much just seemed so small been though they were huge in the past. It wasn't long after that I was diagnosed with a chronic illness that would leave me crippled and in my families care. Who knows what would have happened to me if I had still hated my family and refused to talk to or let them come near me--
So yeah, wolf plays an important part in my life, the problem is I draw SO MANY of them in the Raven Wolf comic >< that I don't know if I want to create another one. Thing is I don't know what else I would be. Should I try to come up with something else as to keep from the redundancy of drawing even more wolves, and if I do what would that be? Or should I keep true with wolf? Or should I just stick to having no fursona at all? I've been going over it for a while now but have yet to make a decision.
Next topic I get asked a lot about is commissions, this is another thing I get asked a lot about. I was thinking I may start some up. My mom is heavily is debt and having trouble making ends meet, and I would like to help her out, so I may be throwing in some commission slots for when I have the time. Unfortunately I don't have a lot of extra time with all the projects that I'm currently working on, and it may mean that my comic pages will be released slower (though I will try my best to prevent that)
If I did they would be non-pornographic, as well as sex sells I don't think I could draw it (You'd think I was 8 years old or something with the way I avoid drawing that), nudity would be find as long as it's not sexually suggestive. What do you guys think? Should I start working on commissions?
