EDIT: I am only taking requests for WoW OC's sorry everyone else but if I'm going to put a tonne of work into something, I want to really enjoy it.
So! At last I've finished the last of the work I had to do on fiverr and closed my gig. I feel as though a massive weight has been lifted from my shoulders. Don't get me wrong, fiverr is great and you can really earn good bucks from it, especially when your level and rep goes up but it's really demanding because of just how much work you do get. My friend in real life is also an artist and she didn't believe me when I told her how much work I was getting until she looked at my stats page. So she opened a fiverr account too and she's since gotten so much work as well it's not funny. It's so easy to burn out, as we have both discovered! Anyway, I think my work as a whole has improved massively from the demand but I'm just stoked to have more time to work on my own projects again. See, I wanted to spend this year on my fanworks (haha stories and pictures) but I haven't achieved half as much as I wanted to. Hopefully that will change now that I have some free time again.
What I really, really want to do is some fanart of John Snow from Game of Thrones, who I think is just perfect with his expressive eyebrows and wincing mouth, man I love him! And also one of Tirion, who I just love with his sad little eyes and noble, courageous personality. And one of Daenarys too, specifically of her and her dragons burning every Lanister to ash, apart from Jaime, who I just want to have his other hand bitten off and then sent off with Brianne to live happily every after - and really, Brianne is just the most awesome character I've seen in a long time ... oh oh oh and I want to do one of Aria and The Hound!!! Oh man, I love the hound. I was so sad when...when... (spoiler!) Anyway, I just love the dynamic between them, it's just gorgeous! Aria is second only to Brianne! Oh and I want to do one of Jodfrey when he died slowly and painfully, what a beautiful moment that was! hahah anyway, needless to say, I'm a serious Game of Thrones fan!
And speaking of things I'm a fan of, don't get me started on Angelina Jolie and Maleficent! I. Just. Love. Her.
Haha, anyway, moving on...
I still like doing work for other people and bringing their vision to life. I think it also expands my skill especially if I'm not being rushed, because then I can look up new or different ways to do things, try different techniques, and make happy accidents and etc etc. So I'm thinking of taking requests when time permits but it will be on a strictly no pressure, no stress absolutely non-commercial basis. Art and writing are hobbies for me, things I do to de-stress and unwind. I have absolutely zero desire to go pro with either of them lol! I'm way too time poor, as it turns out.
My favourite things to work on are people's WoW OCs, because they have put so much thought into them that it ends up being a really rich, meaningful illustration to them, and me I suppose...if that makes any sense...and besides, I just love working on the WoW races (yes, even those bastard blood elves!) ... (and especially the worgen and the undead!) So I am only going to do wow oc's.
I'm not taking on anything at the moment but if you want me to do a request for you at 'some stage', feel free to note me to see if it's something I'm willing to take on at some point. I'm ridiculously friendly, apparently, so don't be shy.
Just to re-iterate, non-commercial requests only please, strictly for your own personal, non-commercial use. and I only do fanart of books/movies that have really enjoyed or which have really moved me...and WoW...I always have time for Wow lol.
...There, so much for this being a quick note, baha! Oh well, it's not like anyone reads journal entries anyway, but if you have read this far, cheers! lol.
