School ends Friday and as does the ~old Jade~
I WILL BE ~FREE~
and you know what else should be ~free~?
MY ARTWORK, THAT'S RIGHT
I'm going to be practicing on larger images from here on out. I'm talking 1200 px by 1200 px and larger.
Why, you ask?
I NEED TO PRACTICE ON DETAIL YOU GUYS. Larger images will help that.
Also, I REALLY NEED to start taking commissions. I know I've mentioned that more times than I'd like, and I know my watchers aren't made of $$$, but if you want to help a brotha out (via points or money through paypal, i do not mind) just give a shout yo. The price is up to you, but after a long time passes, I will have the prices myself.
The reason larger images relate to commissions is that people are willing to pay more for larger images. I need to get accustomed to that so I can sell really good pieces in real life as well as the Internet.
Along with this, this means that I have to make more general pieces of art. More awesome pics of scenery, more "general" things, like monsters and characters that are not part of my stories. This does not mean fanart. A few pieces of fan art may come out in a while (especially if I plan to sell things at a convention or something) but I am not a fanarty person. You see Pokemon every once in a while and I used to upload a lot of MSPA related things. Please don't expect me to increase that amount because it's not gonna happen. I'm speaking ORIGINALITY here. Gotta pump that up!
More info: I'm going to open up a shop assisted by my dad in the summer. It's gonna be selling all kinds of really cute/cool/awesome stuff in the form of pins, necklaces, rings, patches, lanyards, keychains, shirts, prints, and more as time goes on. There is a really good chance I'm going to partner up with a really close friend of mine as well, who is well known for her freakin legit fursuits, oil paintings, and ALL THE WOLVES. Her style is considerably more serious than mine and may apply more to the realistic masses, but it's EQUALLY AWESOME IF NOT MORE. She'll most likely help with 3D things (we might sell things like animal ears, tails, and plushies) and take commissions as well. Sadly, she doesn't have a dA but I promise she's awesome.
But Jade, I don't want to see you advertise a bunch of stuff in your deviations!!
I'm not going to, and I'm not one of those people. I most likely will in journals (with images) if enough people are interested, but if no one is, my business will move elsewhere. I'll be taking commissions on Solia Online as well in the form of their own currency as well as Paypal, and I KNOW for a fact that I will get more commissions there. I'm not leaving dA at all, though. I never would! This is a place to share my art and it's what I'll continue doing until the apocalypse happens and the Internet is only used by emotionless robots.
I'm ready to make art my life and live off of it. I need to make that start before I live on my complete own, and have my store as a (hopefully) busy enough job that I don't need to work at a fast food restaurant or something while I'm in college (which will be next fall).
Thanks for reading and for helping make my dream a reality! You guys are awesome no matter what, and the support you give me will last me forever. Thanks for all you do and I'll be creating new art because of you <3
