Where di the summer go? I swear I just blinked and now school is starting in a week, can you believe it? I lose track of time so easily, it's scary o.O I hope you all have been enjoying your summer
To come right down to the point, I've been thinking about how inactive I've been on Deviantart the past couple of years, and I think it's time I made some changes; I've decided to stop taking requests. After a long run of taking people's requests I've come to feel pretty guilty about how I've delivered. More often than not I won't get to someone's request until months later, and that's really unfair to you guys. Sure I've justified it by saying I've been in school, or I've been dealing with a lot of personal stuff, but most of the time I'm honestly just making excuses. People who make artwork for other people as a living don't let life stand in the way of their work, they just do it, and I don't think I'm in a place where I can reliably take requests. I don't know if I ever was to be honest. I do enjoy making artwork for other people, but I haven't learned to properly account for the people I'm making things for. So...I'm sorry guys but as of now I am officially not taking any more requests
If you're still waiting for me to finish one of your requests don't worry, I'm in the process of wrapping everything I have left up. I'm hoping to get it all out by next week (probably with the exception of the never-ending list of Disney princes and princesses from the person who doesn't seem to exist). After I post this Journal I'm going to go ahead and upload what requests I have completed. I imagine that I will open up requests again sometime in the future, possibly even commissions, so don't lose hope if you've been wanting me to make something for you! Not that I think anyone is, just throwing that out there
So yeah, long story short I'm just not in a responsible place personally to justify taking on requests from you guys. I'm kind of in this confusing stage right now where my University really wants me to decide what my life path will be and I'm being forced to face those hard life questions about who you are and stuff. Those are the sort of questions I've always run away from at light speed, but it seems like it's finally beginning to catch up with me. I honestly don't even know how often I'll be posting art anymore, I'm kinda lost right now. But if things work out I should still at the very least post a sketch or two every once in awhile. Probably being overly bleak here and nothing will change, but oh well, I'm disappointed with myself :/
Anyway, thank you all for your support. All of the Watches and Favorites and Comments and Notes and everything are wonderful and I really appreciate them. Hopefully I can give back more to you all in the future.
