Closed
This is an announcement that I officially CLOSED for commissions for the year.

If you have already contacted me regarding a badge or icon prior to this announcement you have one week from today to pay me. All other inquiries or offers will kindly be declined as I only have 2 more commissions to finish and they're large paintings and I want to finish them.

Trades will resume as normal of course. I'm not taking on /any/ new trades until I finish the ones I already have on my plate. If you have not received my half of a trade that is what I'm going to be working on so I can clear all debts to the furry fandom and do some art for myself for once. It's been years since I painted anything I came up with on my own that wasn't for a project or a commission or something, I figure I owe myself that.

Occasionally I will offer up commission slots but those will be through auctions. Badge and icon slots may be offered on occasion off auction but they will be few and far between.

Do you think I should make up a mailing list alerting folks to when I will be offering icon slots so its not like I spring it on you on LJ or should I continue things as they are? I'm not really sure how to do that but I bet it's easy.

Any tips would be more than helpful.

Sorry if this inconveniences anyone in any way.

What?

But.. but... I was going to commission you for a 12-legged 12-breasted vixentaur with rainbow stripes and wings and tentacle arms. :<
All my hopes and dreams, down the drain!

Good for you. I look forward to seeing your new projects and artstuffs. :)

Re: What?

VOLUPTUOUS!

Good lord I'm glad Ive never had to draw anything like that. But hopefully now I can finally draw some more bear-taurs :3

Have fun with the personal art, can't wait to see it if you decide to share it online. :D

no worries, I certainly will :) I hope this helps my art output honestly. There's just /so much guilt/ associated with drawing for myself these days because I have stuff for other people I need to do.

I don't do commissions but I know what you mean about the guilt.. I have art assignments to do, and I feel like I'm wasting time when I just draw stuff I wanna do rather than stuff I have to do. :s

I think I must have missed you openning, next time perhaps :)

I had some badge slots that were open forever and no one nabbed them so I'm absorbing them back into the cosmos.

And I was pretty much always easily bribed if someone had something particular they wanted from me, but now, not at all. I really wanna draw for myself ;3

Ah, I don't really tend to go after badges that much. I like simple sketches with the odd colour one. Although digital art may be easier, it's nice to have a hard copy of something too.

Oh man I can totally relate. I just did the same thing. (The 'OMG NO! DON'T!!.... STOP GIVING ME MONEY FOR ARTS!' thing)

I must say though... I can't wait to see when you're let off the leash and the art your brain creates for yourself. (If you decide to share it with the internets) That was always my favorite art of yours. :D


EDIT: Punctuation and grammar. X_X

Its hard to stop! It really is. Especially when you're like "I'm closed" and someone's like "but i wanted to buy this expensive thing from you!" I'm such a pushover in that regard. But I gotta put my foot down

My art has gotten really lackluster lately and I just kinda trudge along. I don't want it to be that way. I need a break. I overwhelmed myself last time. It will be really nice to have a clean slate.

Hey, feel free to put my trade asside for a while if you want to refresh yourself. I'd rather you worked on it if you were inspired rather than having to and I'm in no rush anyhow :)

Working for yourself is the most important thing, doncha know?
thornwolf From: thornwolf Date: February 29th, 2008 11:06 pm (UTC) (Link)
dont worry. I don't do stuff when it's going to come out rushed :) It's not fair to folks. this is why I take so long to do stuff nowadays unfortunately :P

I have an idea for yours though so at least I'm halfway there XD

Awesome. Just don't stress over it, is all I meant :)

Lol totally off subject, at first I read "injuries" instead of "inquiries".

Everyone needs a break, do it to it! (:

The mailing list sounds like a fine idea to me.
