so it's been a while since i've been regularly active here and that's mostly due to laziness. but i'm posting now to keep everyone abreast of what's coming up stream/commission-wise. here's what's up.
streams are now thursday to sunday, 3-10pm central. my hubby's shift recently changed and i'm following suit.
i've retired watercolor toons and speedpaints for now. i am moving away from photoshop as a primary artmaking program, and those were the only digital commission types that i still used photoshop to make. i am still working on how i want to translate those types of commissions to clip studio paint, so once i refine how i want the workflow translated in CSP i will offer them again.
i am getting rid of icons and instead offering headshots. what's the difference? icons i formatted to be small and square. i produced them small and at 72 DPI. i am now offering headshots that i think will be more useful for people outside of just 100x100px gifs. they'll be offered for every colored commission style (so instead of just full body or partial, you can get that style as a headshot.) in general they will be bigger, be "circle" friendly, and come in one of two default backgrounds: solid color background like usual OR "floating head" with transparent PNG. as usual, background elements can be added but will be extra.
some prices are changing, MOSTLY the headshots and i am standardizing the extra character discounts i offer. the usual single character styles and sketch pages are not changing. these changes will be coming probably the 17th, when i will have it all finalized. until then, you can grab all available commissions.
still working on bringing back reference sheets. i keep getting asked about them and am still on the fence.
thinking about offering YCH scenes to give me a chance to draw some themes i don't normally get commissioned.
