I want to address something and get it out into the air.
I get it, my art isn't anything super special. People don't have much money nowadays and certainly won't spend it on art when they can buy better things, and certainly not my art. I'm not mad, I just understand it.
Thinking about it the last couple days arguing about money and all that with my mate and thinking on my negligible income from the 2 or 3 commissions i get every couple months I realize it's not a feasible pursuit and trying to attract them is a fruitless waste of effort.
So, I'm going to stop worrying about it and stop trying to get people to spend on my work when it's taking away from my enjoying doing it and the time i have to do it. I'm going to do art for me now, and if something comes along that's great but I can't keep stressing over trying to make money with it. It's just not worth it.
Trades I'll try to do. Requests will be sparse, and even if I say yes i might not get to it as I'm sure many have found out.
Commissions? Well that's going to be something different from now on. I don't know right now and with all the schoolwork I've got to do today it's not anything I plan on re-working any time soon.
More writing and 3D hopefully coming soon. I'm getting better with both and getting to the point where I like working with it instead of avoiding it cos I have to do it for school.
I hope people can be okay with all this.
Also on a side note, I like talking to people so if you want someone to talk to too, drop me a note for my IMs.
Wish everyone the best, or just the best of luck. Whichever you need more.
