I'm so sorry for my disappearance again. Life has been quite really rough. Depression keeps coming back. Internet has been cut off. And my dad is in the hospital right now. I just don't know anymore OTL. I'm really stressed about everything. I have been trying to play games to divert my attention and it did help make me feel better but then later I feel guilty about it so yea idk.

For the people who have been asking about their commission updates, specially the sketch commissions, I know I said they're quick to do but yea I'm taking forever on them right now. I'm really so sorry for the delay guys, I promise to finish them as soon as everything gets fine.
I actually thought of opening a commish again because the hospital bill keeps on increasing but I'm not sure about it. I might just contact a few people.

I'm only currently using a prepaid internet. Once I get a new service I will start uploading pics.
Hope you all guys are okay. And I apologize again for the inactiveness.

Sorry to hear about all this. I was going to note you today about my commission, but now I read this. And I dont know how missed this, I am watching you. But yeah, I suffer from depression too. Big time. So know how it can go. And I know you must be busy, also. So take all the time you need! You're worth it. I hope things turn around for you. I really do. Be well, man!

Don't worry, take care of yourself and what's really important first. Keep the positivism and you'll see everything will be fine.

Don't apologize to your DA watchers and their anime pictures when you're having much more important troubles. I say try to sort out your own problems first, take care of yourself and your father if you can. I'm sure most people who are commission-hungry will be able to stand the wait. Best of luck to you.

Thank you for the update. I'm really sorry to hear about your dad being unwell.

Best wishes from me and the Star Army guys.

One idea for money you could try is to make a collection of some of your best art and use it to make an artbook to sell. There are many other artists on DeviantArt who have done this and we could ask them for advice.

Edit: Also, I sent you a note on Facebook.

Take things one day at a time.  And don't feel guilty about taking some time for yourself (playing games).  You NEED to do that.

It's the oxygen mask in the airplane.  You put YOUR mask on first, THEN put the mask on for your loved ones.  Why?  IF you try to do them first, it's harder, and takes longer.  If you take too long, you might pass out before you succeed, and then you both die.  You take care of yourself first, they might pass out, but will be ok after you hook them up.

So, DO NOT feel guilty about doing little things to make yourself feel better.  It's needed.  And HAS to happen, or you'll crack up and won't be good for anyone.

I don't have a commission in your queue -- but if I did I'd tell you to get to it whenever, I care more about the PERSON that the artist is more than my commission.  And it sounds like you've got a lot going on that needs to be taken care of.

So, take care of yourself, and just keep moving.  it'll get better.

Take as much time as you need. I knew something had to be drastically wrong that you weren't responding. Remember I'm here if you need to talk any time you want. I'll be praying things get better - know they always do.
