And lasses, can't forget those as well! I have yet to post a journal entry in such a long time...So I suppose now would be a good time to start. I've been lazy and should probably update every week anyways. What's today...Wednesday? I guess that's a good day to post; hump day posting powers activated. I digress, back to a more... professional me; please sit back, relax, and enjoy your read.
So lately I've been considering exactly what I want to do with the works I make. This has gotten me into a sort of rote. I've become popular in a sense where people watch me for the pony stuff. At the same time, however, it's discouraging to be watched by so many people and get so little favorites, yet alone comments. I'd very much like more attention for the several hours (or even days) I put into works.
No more gloom in this section, just know it'd very much be appreciated.
To change the mood of things, I've gotten a streaming account on picarto.tv and am hoping to be able to stream on certain days. Comment which days you'd think you'd be able to make it, including times. There'll be stream exclusive goodies for those who attend (gift art, discounted commissions, ych's, auctions, and PWYW). I'd like to have you around to just...generally get to know me.
It is with heavy heart that I must cancel my commissions I already have unless you don't mind waiting several months. I've hit an emotional snag and think it's time to focus on what I want to draw for a while. Commissions will be closed until further notice, however... I did promise this to two people that I was offering PWYW commissions. That said, you two will be on a special list whenever my commissions are open, so you may still pay what you'd like (I owe you that much)
I'm sure you haven't noticed unless you contact me personally, but I have been gone for several days. A close friend of mine decided he'd like to vacation and tour stuff here in Oregon, so happily, Matthew and I were his guides on this expedition. Oregon is a gorgeous place, and I'm sure he has had tons of fun here! However, I've been feeling a bit glum, which leads to the conclusion of me cancelling my commissions for now and, I quote:
"...it's discouraging to be watched by so many people and get so little favorites, yet alone comments. I'd very much like more attention for the several hours (or even days) I put into works."
I'll feel better when I've had some time to think and recover, right now I have to deal with my own personal issues. I don't wish for anyone to worry - this'll be good for me to think of what I really want to do and get crackin' on it.
I Suppose That's It For Now
Sorry for a rather disheartening journal, but as my watchers, you deserve to know what's up, and as an artist being followed by said watchers, I cannot allow myself to leave you guys in the dark. Anyways, thank you for reading and I hope you have a good one. Be sure to comment if you'd like!
Also, go wish this gal AprilTheFool on dA a good ol' happy birthday (October 22nd if you can today)
