Hey I wanted to see what everyone is doing?

I went from crazy busy to slow and sleepy this year.

Thinking about new projects and art. 

Anyone have ideas what I should paint?
Been thinking about doing a new art book.
Trying to figure out theme or concept.

Obviously anything fan art related is out of the question. 
I'd really like to do a realistic fine art book, but not summer if those are popular....thoughts?
Does anyone know good job sites for artists?

There are good jobs here on Deviant art, Indeed, Upwork 

Freelancer seems to be iffy.

Any help?
Commissions are Half OFF if you order and pay today 
I thought about the story of Peter Dinklage for awhile now. He left his day job at 29 and pursued his passion no matter the cost. I'll be 30 in a few weeks and I hate my day job, it kills me mentally and physically. I know most other jobs would do the same. I want to take that leap of faith, but risk so high. 

Any full time artists have advice?

My current goal is to leave my normal job by the end of 2017 and work as a full time artist. So im trying to expand on my art.

Im currently working regularly on a comic as well as Im making one of my own which is going to be a one shot.

Im also concepting a movie and tv idea. Concepting a children's book idea. 

As well as a few bigger projects.

But I need help. I want to expand on my style and subject matter, so I need ideas. What do you want to see from me thats new? Style? Concept? Genre?

Hey I just wanted to let everyone know I will be on patreons

Trying it out

I said it. I want to open up about this. I was recent diagnosed with it. I hid it for awhile, but Im embracing it now.
Several months ago I my heart and head got broken when My best friend ended our friendship. I loved her more than
most of my family and she was very important in my life, but having mental illness I put stress on her, I have depression
and anxiety, and since moving in with her, I developed PSTD, based on my previous home experience. I was messed up but
I've always had a big heart and so much passion. But there came a point where I became too much for her, and I didnt get
the help I needed, and our friendship ended. It destroyed me badly, because she did so much for me mentally, She changed my life,
and when this happened my life changed again. I got very sick, I stopped eating, stopped drawing and couldnt sleep. I made
four attempts, and had a small addiction issue. I was destroyed, and in the process of destroying myself I started experiencing
very bad hallicinations and delusions. It was losing her, and hurting myself I got help, and I did so many doctor visits of all
kinds, and after everything was put together I was diagnosed with Schizophrenia. I still suffer many aspects of the disease along with
my previous problems, and developing new issues like memory loss. Its sucks. And Im on alot of medicine, and im seeing all the doctors
I need to see. But Its still awful. I lost my best friend. I lost a few other friends of mine. Im losing my appartment in 2 months,
But Im doing so much better, Im fighting harder than ever before. Im trying to really put all the art out there that I can because I do
face homelessness. Its so scary and I just want to make art.
I just want to update my followers who read this. 
I'm probably going to end my activity on Deviant within 3 months. That's when my lease is up and I'll probably be living on the road. So digital drawings  will be almost impossible to do. I've just dug myself into a hole with medical happenings. I will be finishing up commissions, and hopefully putting a few new pieces up before I have to leave. But it has been amazing on here. So many great artists and friends. If something happens I'll let you know, but I lost hope awhile ago and I'm clinging onto facts, and fact is I'm sick and I can't afford an apartment along with my other bills. Living in a car long enough I can save up and come back to a stable living environment. I do want personally thank as many followers as I can. This is just a path on my journey
This guy is trying to pay artists to make child porn

Beware, report do what you have to
Basically all my money went to house bills and lots of medical bills. Getting myself help, I have cleared my bank account, and Christmas will be awful if I dont raise some money.

Im doing $5 TOON YOURSELF commissions.

Special Christmas Commission by HeroforPain

$5 per head, and it can be anyone, Multiple orders are awesome.

I can have pieces done within an hour of payment.
I need help getting a list of conventions lined up. I figure everyone knows of a few good ones. 

I'm based in Ohio and I'm looking to stay in the surrounding area (states) Please let me know good conventions to do...Comic Video Game Movie Anime Horror ....
Thanks

I was reported again. <da:thumb id="559232941"/>
 
He post that, my painting and the original reference I used. and then he reported me. Again.

What the hell am I supposed to do????

He will keep reporting my art and DA staff wont help me out. All because he was called out for being a tracer and not admitting stealing my work. I should have reported him but I didnt, my mistake for not being a low life.

can someone explain to this lunatic the difference from using a reference and tracing. and get this Looney some medicine. I tried to reason with the guy but he is an unstable art thief and all he does is trace.
