I've been hard at work as the new semester started on January 9th. Next week I'll be starting weekly volunteering at the Pride Center and Womens Center on campus, and I've got a few class projects on my to do list. Art posts will be slim, but that's one of the things I want to talk about!
About my art:
I post lots of sketches and such on my new Instagram
My username is lounginglemming, and I also sometimes post selfies, silly videos, and other photos.I will be moving away from fan art
, as it's a bit of a trap and something I've become a slave to for views and favorites. My world lights up when I see a new comment or fave, and then deflates immediately when I see it's on an old piece of fanart (especially if it's something I didn't put as much work into as some of my original stuff). I also really need to start building a portfolio, so original art is a priority. SO, if you only follow me for fanart, please feel free to unwatch me, thanks!Dragons
. Well, I love dragons dearly, and I'll probably still do dragon art. However, don't expect any updates for Ballad of the Lost
anytime soon. Or art of my main characters anytime soon either. I'm too stuck in a niche, and there's so many other things I'm missing out on. This kind of connects to the whole fanart thing, I want to be more than a one-trick pony.Commissions will be returning
in April at the earliest, and July at the latest. I'm hoping to have a proper commission sheet made up by then and the prices adjusted accordingly.
In my Concept Art and Storyboarding course, we are given homework of daily drawing with a weekly theme
. I hope to start posting those, but with all 7 of each theme posted together as one image. My profs feedback might also be visible, IDK if I'm going to go through the effort of cropping that out or whatever.
I am really hoping to work on more designs for my Redbubble and Society6 stores
, because I'm really really broke. I don't really have time for a job, and additionally I've been applying still but no one in this city will hire someone as a retail worker if they've got 2 and a half years of industrial experience, APPARENTLY >_> Most of the job listings here insist you have at least three years of retail experience, which makes me wonder how anyone fresh out of high school is supposed to get a job? Oh well.
TL;DR: Expect mostly original work from here on out, and I am broke.
