You guys know I've been in a rough patch since like...november.
It's...it's still kinda rough for me but I'm trying to stay positive.
I mean...I know I'm fortunate, though, because my "rough patch" is probably nothing compared to someone else's,
but for someone who's extremely empathetic and worries way too much, it's...it's still rough.
There's just been a lot going on, a lot of change in a short amount of time.
And I don't mean to be so um...secretive? About it? I just don't like broadcasting all of my problems for everyone to see.
But, if you genuinely want to know about what's going on, feel free to message me privately, I'm more than happy to fill you in.
But anyway, I'm here to move forward.
My summer goal is to earn more money from my art.
It's my only source of income, and due to previously-mentioned rough patch, I'd like to avoid asking my parents for money if I can.
First things first,
I set up a ko-fi.
I'm thinking that this will help me year-round, especially when I can't open commissions during the semester.
All 1st time donors will get a colored bust sketch
an uncolored half-body sketch.
Like I said, one sketch per person, please.
At least for now.
I'm going to be adding some Overwatch-related art to my Redbubble store soon. Mercy/Dva/Sombra are the ones I have planned for now. (Mercy is even sketched out :'D )
Totally open to recommendations though!
I'm going to try to step out of my bubble & comfort zone by offering fanart on RB.
I might add some pokemon content too.
I think I'm going to work on these first before tackling my owed art - just so I can get back into the swing of things.
I want my owed art to be up to my own standards, and right now I just don't have any ideas that really stand out to me. You guys deserve my best, and I just want to make sure I can give that to you.
I'll be trying to push out more YCHs and maybe some adopts on FA.
They'll probably be FA exclusive, simply since the interest in them seems to be there and not here.
I kinda feel like I don't have any good ideas for them, so if anyone has any recommendations, I'm all ears.
But regardless, I'm going to try and make some YCHs anyway, and try to quit limiting myself to "is this a good theme"
I might make some surveys so you guys can help me decide on some YCH/redbubble things!
Of course, I'll still be keeping up with personal art, since y'know that's...that's what I do. Lmao.
I want to stream more, and hopefully since it's summer, I'll be able to. I also want to start streaming my games
too (uh...skyrim, sims, maybe overwatch?) - I don't want to do this without a mic, and all I need is a little adapter thing to use the headphone mic I already have.
I don't think I'll be able to have a set stream schedule, but I'd love to be able to stream at least something
once a week.
I want to be more active and engaged. This semester, I sort of got swept off of that trail, but I'm going to try to get back on it now that I don't have to worry about school.
Anyway, any and all support
is really appreciated!
Thanks guys, here's to hoping I'm able to get back on my feet soon
