I think Vardengard is my conscience (... I think I spelled that right...). He's always kicking me back to reality.

Anyway, I was just commissioned to do caricatures for a hockey team! YAY!!!! First commission! I can't wait to get paid! Er... I mean... drawing, yeah, I can't wait to start drawing...

lol, just kidding you. This one seems like an interesting project, I just hope I can meet her expectations :)


<EDIT>

I almost forgot, here's a shoutout to everyone on DA who's helped me get this far in my art!

Aaawww....your comic is so cute! And I agree. You're tablet skills are becoming pretty awesome (you're probably the reason I finally broke donw and got me one).

And look! I'm on the list! :glomp::glomp::glomp: If I had a list, you'd definately be on there! :)
Lastly, a commission! Awesome! I wish I would get one. :( I recently got a request, but I told her I would prefer a commission. But I guess, I'll let it slide since it was her birthday. I'm hoping to get some someday. *gazes into the distance*

Aw, thanks :cuddle:

I have an idea for starting commissions, but I think off holding off on telling you about it until I get it posted. It's a little complicated.

Ah! I want to reap your secrets master! :XD:

You'll see, you'll see. It's a bit of an experiment.

ur doing a what for a hockey team :confused:
oooo jessie jess jess you always kicked ass at drawing :B
BTW what school are you going to anyways?
ftepainting's avatar
A commission. Basically, instead of giving trophies to the kids, a booster mom is commissioning me to draw a picture of the team members and the coaches.

meh, I aws alright, but now I'm happy with my progress. And I still need to get better.

Right now I'm not going to school. I've applied but I haven't been accepted anywhere yet.

so i take it u work then?
thats a cool reward! how much is she paying u
it sounds like fun!
ftepainting's avatar
Um... yeah ^^; I've been working at Borders for almost eight months now.
Anyway, I'm being paid about $15 per picture for the commission
sayoko's avatar
thats cool
was borders ur first job?
is it hard?
can u get me a job <~ REALLY REALLY I MEAN REALLY NEEDS ONE
ftepainting's avatar
Um, no. My first job was as a cashier at Shoppers. Then I worked at PetSmart as a Pet Specialist (which just basically means I take care and sell the animals). And I once got commissioned to paint McDonalds' characters in a window for a grand opening. I also worked as a secretary for a house painting company. Those jobs were all while I was in school. I started working at Borders last June after graduation. And last winter I worked as a research assistant for a military magazine.

o D : i cant get a job :failure: loli think people have a bad image of me :/
did u ever do the pictures for mc d's?
if so do u have a pic : D!!!
ftepainting's avatar
What do you mean by "do the pictures"? I just painted their characters in the window. It's the McDonalds on Dale Blvd just right off of Gideon Drive (the street you come to as you go past Gar-field.)

It's really not that great at all.
