Announcing a Commission Hiatus

by
I've began to look at myself and my art from a different angle and I'm truly beginning to believe there's more for me in the way of what I need to do for myself.

I think I've spent far too long these past 3-4 years wasting my time, not doing what I should be doing and how I should be applying myself.

I've seen artists younger than me and less experienced than me pushing themselves harder and finding it in themselves to improve faster and surpass me in instants. I'm learning that I've been failing myself in terms of what I expect from myself. I can do better than this.

I'm stopping commissions for the moment. All of the current commissions and/or paid colour orders will be completed as I work through my skill-building, but I have decided to no longer accept new commissions at this time.

I am sorry to anybody who was really hoping for one in the near future, and that you will have to wait longer.

Any and all inquiries about when I open again will be ignored as I have no idea how long this is going to take.

I will continue to work on art that I feel I should be doing for myself and my progression as an artist. Thank you everybody for your support this far, and I hope you'll all continue to help take me farther in the future.

Just.. everything.

I've spent almost zero time outside of my commissions doing what I want to and drawing anything else.

No practice

No study

No skill-building.

The fact that I haven't done as much as I could have feels really bad.

Oh good, I thought you thought you weren't a good artist, even though your an excellent one. I hope we'll get to see the fruits of this practice once your haitus is over, and that the haitus won't be too long.

I guess i was looking for maybe somthing more specific? I like your style. Not to say i dont think there are area that you could work on. Of course, that is somthing that you have to decide for yourself. Is it your style that doesnt please you?

All of the above

I don't have any specifics. I just want to make that step from a mid-low-tier artist to somebody whose art is phenomenal.

I want to go from "good" to "excellent".

There's so much that needs to be done. So many things that I look at and say "I can't do that yet" that I need to rectify.

ah i understand.
im ALMOST at that stage myself, but i think my biggest concern right now is speed.
Im currently satisfied with my anatomy and style, but i want to be able to pump it out faster.
