I've been getting a few requests, so I thought I'd preemptively disappoint everyone here. I am sorry, but I am NOT doing requests or commissions right now. I might in the future. If you want to know why, it's mostly because of my mental health. I spent 5 total years in college art classes being told to draw what other people wanted instead of what I wanted. That (and other reasons) pretty much killed my desire to draw at all for years. So now I just want to focus on my own creations. If I can overcome my aversion to drawing other people's ideas I may open up commissions, but for now the answer will be "no" if you ask. I apologize for disappointing you.

DeviantArt sure has changed since I've been gone. Guess I've changed too. I've come to accept my inadequacies as an artist. I've come to accept there will always be people better than me, people who are younger, yet with more experience and knowledge who have more success than me. Just the thought of it used to frustrate me to the point of paralysis. How could I even think to draw anymore when somebody else could have done better in less time? I've been in a slump for about 7 years, but those kinds of thoughts have plagued me since before then. I was constantly comparing myself to others, when I should have been comparing myself to my past self. Had I improved? Had I learned anything? Had I honed my skills any? But I need to be careful not to compare myself to my future self yet. I can't look at a piece and get angry that it's not as good as I could make it if I was better. The getting better will come later. What I've found that helps me at the moment is to look at my work and ask

About the worst possible thing for me is to come to this site, look at other people's art, become depressed, and be miserable for the rest of the day. I don't ever feel inspired, or filled with awe or appreciation. All it does it get me jealous that I'm not that good, and I know it's my own fault, so... I just can't do it anymore. I removed my favorites from my page so I don't have to look at them. But that doesn't even help, because if I even go on one of my deviations to reply to comments or look at my work and try to convince myself that I'm an alright artist, I'm still assaulted with better illustrations. On the right side of the page, th

I like your sense of humour very much, Snaz-dono; you're a talented artist, too. Don't let those negative thoughts stop you from writing and drawing great comics, because they have a lot of value, and are enjoyed.

Could I possibly ask something from you
