'. . . I don't how I got this way: I'll never be alright! So, I'm breaking the habit... I'm breaking the habit - tonight! I'LL PAINT IT ON THE WALLS... 'CAUSE I'M THE ONE AT FAULT!. . .'
When I first heard this song long ago by Linkin Park; I was once again moved by their dynamic lyrics and infusing rhythm that I've always enjoyed from this band. Then I saw the music video and my mind was blown away. It was so raw and different from the few I'd seen before, and launched me into being an all out Linkin Park fan. The art was fantastic, raw, different. It grabbed me in a way I thought impossible.
However, I've never felt the above line to be more true in my life than it is now.
I've recently discovered a lot of things about my life are stale - my art included.
Looking over everything I've done; which I still enjoy and love and will still do... I've discovered what I have not done.
I need to branch out; try new styles; new projects, new ideas. I need to learn new things. I need to grow beyond what I know now. And to do this, I need challenges, discipline and help. This is where you can step in, if you chose, and help me move beyond what I know, into the unknown. How you ask? Simple.
I'm going to start dabbling into some other mediums; marker, watercolor, colored pencil.
If things go well, I'll offer this medium style in my commissions. This means you'd be getting a digital and physical copy of your piece.
For right now, I shall be doing:
- pencil sketches
- digital inks
- digital color
Lists of things I shall:
- Mature Art
- Animals: Fantasy and Realistic
- Discrimatory pieces (art made to slander against race, sexuality, political standing)
Will Try, but I have little/lost experience in:
- Mechannical Heavy subjects (IE, Mechs, Cars)
- Still Life pieces
- Political pieces
- Religious pieces
I've become very enamored with the idea of making a fursuit for myself and a friend, so I am giving it a go. Should my efforts yield results I can be proud of, I shall share with everyone my experience and decide if I find the idea appealing enough to be lucrative.
Right now, I am going to accept just points as payments towards my goal of trying out Premium DA for a month, as well as some points on the side for things I myself would like to commission from others. However, if you feel generous enough to feel I am deserving of the actual good ol dollar, you can note me and we can discuss things further. Any extra cash I have right now, little it may be, I need to use towards getting back my Photoshop program, or getting Sai in order to get back to producing the better quality art that I use to: hopefully even better than before. So if you choose to do the latter - that is where your funds are going. Towards Art supply - be whatever they may.
Price updates soon; as well as a little more content to this post and hopefully my overall gallery and enrichment of talent.
