Hey everyone. It's been a very long time since my last journal--almost a year. These have been some very difficult few months for me and my family. Only now have I really begun to pull myself together and reflect on who I am and how I've treated others.
To all the wonderful people who won my Christmas contest, who commissioned me, or who had requests/trades planned from me, I give you my sincerest apologies for disappearing without a trace. I wish I could say that I'm going to make good on those promised artworks, but I can't. I've matured a lot and I realize now that taking on that many commissions and requests is just not something I can handle in the long run.
Unfortunately I'm rather confused about all the tasks I had to do and cannot remember the status of each item. Please, if you paid me in points or cash for a commission you did not receive, send me a note if you would like a refund. If you feel charitable and would like to consider those as donations, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
To the three people who won my contest--if you feel as though you must have compensation for my letting you down (which is entirely understandable and I will not be angry) let me know if you would like a 1 month subscription.
If there is anyone else to whom I owe something, again, please send me a note and I'll do my best to rectify the situation.
Henceforth, this account will not be used for new artwork, but just for reference. I will be making a dedicated account for Dream of Stars eventually, and when I do so, I'll post a notice here. I wish to focus more on my future, which includes plans for my own portfolio site. Unfortunately, moe artwork doesn't have a place in my long-term professional goals, aside from visual novels, so this account would not see much use regardless.
Lastly, if you send a note and I don't respond in for a long time, try emailing me at killerteddies[AT]gmail[DOT]com.
I hope you can understand. When I first started taking commissions, it was like a dream! People were willing to pay for my art, and I got overzealous and just took on too much. It was a nice escape from the shit that was college. But I've learned my lesson. I have my own schedule and new priorities now, but I do think fondly of all the kind people I met through this account! Do not hesitate to email me if you wish to stay in contact!
Goodbye for now~
