It's been a long time, but I've finally completed the four commissions I did for a charity early this year. This also marks the first time I've ever done a commission, too, so it was an experience for me.
It was about... maybe February (?) that an internet/Twitter bro aksmth said his dog Andyroo, had cancer. Several other internet bros started a kickstarter-like charity to raise money for him, so I decided to jump in, and volunteer to draw for anyone who donated $5 or more.
Now, I'm not the most out-going artist out there, so I did get quite discouraged when no one took me up on my offer, even though it was only a few hours since then. After another artist friend snapped me out of it, I did feel a bit better, and in a day or so, I started getting PMs. I was not only grateful that I could help out, but also because my art was enticing enough for someone to think, "Hey, I'd like to get something from him." Since I never did this before, I was pretty anxious about getting these done, not really knowing how long it takes someone who normally does commissions.
I was also anxious about getting my own personal art done, and I always felt that I never had enough time to do everything I wanted, and that I was working too slow, so that was not a pleasant experience. Now that I finished my commissions, I'm... "free" I guess (?) to work on my own personal art, so yay for that.
In short, I'm happy I got to help, and Andyroo is doing well, to the point where the tumor is close to being able to be removed, I believe, and that I kind of got my name out there, sorta. And that pressure I felt means I will NEVER DO THIS AGAIN. Or, at least, not for a little while.
As for my own art, I want to introduce more of my characters to my page, although I'm having trouble thinking of poses for them. There's just a lot I want to do, and I wish I never had to sleep so I can just work all the time.
Thanks to everyone who donated to the charity, and the four gentlemen who decided to give me a shot at drawing for money. I'll... I don't know, I'll see if I can introduce my next character soon; I don't want to rush it, which would completely ruin the point of my gallery clean-out.
Join me on Twitter to watch me complain about shit.
