Progress? I reff’d the shit out of those hands, you don’t even know.
Maybe a second Halloween pic? I dunno. Phe, who’s not a full vampire, but she’s good at pretending she is anyhow.
SHOES. GHOSTS. HORRIBLE TYPOGRAPHY.
(also workin’ hard at work)
Iiiinks. :V I’m waffling on giving her shoes or not. On one hand, she could have cute witchy boots/heels, on the other hand, I’m awful at shoes/heels.
Roughs for a cute witchy Poe Halloween pic. Man, it feels so good to be drawing again.
I’ve been working on this for the last couple hours, a birthday (now slightly belated) gift for my fiance, keeperofdreams. It’s his fursona, Tony, who’s a spotted hyena/tasmanian devil hybrid.
I’m really happy with this, actually, cause it’s so rare that I draw a good male body and I actually succeeded really well this time!

Trying to draw an Ally with, you know, my actual body shape is surprisingly difficult! I’m pudgy, but not overweight. In the right clothes, I look relatively thin. I just have a bit of a belly, for the most part. I usually default to drawing Ally a normal thin size because it’s easiest.
After some thought and taking a look at my current personal life situation, I’m going to be refunding the commissions I currently owe. I simply cannot balance doing paid artwork on top of catching up on school from my mother’s heart attack and working two jobs. I can barely keep my head above water with just that stuff alone, I don’t need to have overdue commissions hanging in the back of my mind reminding me that there’s yet something else I have to do, as well.
As far as I can recall, the only two commissions I have in my queue currently are:
I’ll be refunding these fully as soon as I can. I apologize for the inconvenience.
That being said, I’m probably not going to be taking commissions for awhile. I’m pretty unhappy with how I’ve been letting my art stagnate and how I’ve been telling myself I should be posting more for more exposure so I can get more commissions that, in turn, I generally don’t like doing anyhow. I should be drawing for myself or for friends or to improve my artwork in general.
Whenever I do take commissions again, it’ll probably be for small things or styles I really like doing. Full digital commission pieces take a lot out of me and I don’t feel I do them as much justice as I should.
And, like I said, balancing work, school, family, and a social life is hard enough on its own without a quasi third job thrown in there that I’m not even getting paid minimum wage for.
I want to draw because it makes me happy, not to pay the bills.
