Hello to anyone who still watches me after a 4-year hiatus!
I wish I could spend as much time as I used to on this site but unfortunately, life is busy.
I just wanted to put out some feelers to see if anyone might be interested in some pet portraits! I currently do watercolor portraits (size 9x12", but could do other sizes if there was enough interest!).
Unfortunately, there wouldn't be a quick turn around as I am still a vet student.
I would love to hear your opinions on prices as well!
Apart from that, I hope you're all doing well and please feel free to say hello! I'd love to catch up with you all :)
So I joined DA in April of 2013 (: Like so many others, I began art on Howrse. There I began pixels and eventually manipulations. There, I also joined my first group: Forgotten Memory Designs. Founded by the amazing Belleo (https://www.deviantart.com/belleo) , a wonderful pixel artist. That group led me to DA where I really began to grow as an artist and then I don't know, things happened. I don't really recall the order but yes. DA helped me get from this:
(sad cause it's not even my first)
And then on May 16th 2015 I was honoured to receive a Daily Deviation on this piece:
Which is amazing in itself because it's an art trade with the crazy perfect
*I unfortunately do not have enough time to thank you all individually for the faves, comments and watches so I will thank you here!
So thank you :heart:
What have I done to deserve this? Idk but I do have to say, thank you so so so so so so much PolarisAstrum (https://www.deviantart.com/polarisastrum) ,for suggesting, and Emerald-Depths (https://www.deviantart.com/emerald-depths) for featuring me :')
I can't even fathom this, I mean wow ;o
I really don't
So yeah, I have to thank all of you actually, friends, watchers, role models, you've all been extremely influential and I appreciate everything so much and yeah.
Love you all :heart:
the amount I procrastinate makes me proud and want to beat my own head it
lets list some scenarios;
1. never studied, history test in 2 day, watched the lion king 1 and 1/2, alpha and omega, hercules, aladdin, mulan, pochahontas, mulan 2, pochahontas 2, the little mermaid and the little mermaid 2
2. history project due tomorrow; made this poll, went on DA forever, watched ruffian, and then a bunch of other horse racing clips (i.e., secretariat, man o' war, northern dancer, zenyatta, etc), watched 2 hours worth of art tutorials
not even gunna mention bio procrastination
anyways, the point of this poll? HOW DO I STOP PROCRASTINATING
While I do not think a minimum wage price could be applied for those of who spend 50+ hours on a manip, I do think many equine manipulators are not realizing their worth.
In Canada, I believe 9.50/hr is minimum wage, I would never dare charging that much but I have raised my prices to a $20 base.
However, so many great artists are offering commissions for literally pennies, others may not be quite as severe but 800 points for a good quality manip that you spend 10 hours on is crazy. Thats less than 1$ an hour!
While art is my hobby, it does take up a lot of time I could be spending on hanging out with friends or even sleeping
So please keep in mind that with tax, 100 points is equal to $1.
Soo.. ONE POINT EQUALS ONE CENT (essentially)
So yeah, maybe not all of need to increase our prices but I do know quite a few of you who could increase your prices. Yeah, you, I see you. RAISE YO PRICEES GURL <3
