So, something that really bugs me is when someone comes to me and requests something, then makes no effort to say anything once the image is complete and I have notified them (by dA note). I just spent 8+ hours of my own free time, for free, creating something for someone else and I don't get any acknowledgement! That really ticks me off!
I am not expecting the requester to swoon over it or anything, but a simple "thank you" is what polite people do when others make time in their lives to honor your non-paid requests. I don't have a whole heap of time for artsy stuff - I have a toddler who thinks Momma's tablet is the coolest think to rub he
So... as I may have mentioned, I am in the middle of uploading all my old art (circa 2000-2003 stuff). I am going through this folder on my computer alphabetically and I am only at "h"... I mean, I am *already* at "h". *sigh* This feels like it is taking freaking forever!!!! :crying:
If I have anyone still actively watching my gallery and they're wondering why there is suddenly an influx of art that seems below my normal level, I will explain:
I am uploading a lot of legacy art. I am fearful that if I do not, I might lose it, and so-far dA has been the most consistent place to house my work (I keep coming back and it keeps staying up).
This is also giving me a much-needed break from the WoW monkey, so that is good, too. And also, my daughter is allowing me to do this so I need to take it while I can.
I don't know if there is any way to prevent this oldy-goldy work from showing up in my recent uploads... it would be nic
So, since I have the opportunity to do so today, I am testing out journal skins. :D
I loathe server maintenance days on World of Warcraft. But I suppose they can be a good thing, too. I have been wanting to go through all my old art papers and scan stuff, but it keeps getting overlooked and forgotten. It is mainly because it is just easier to play WoW. A friend once recommended I get that monkey off my back (in reference to WoW)... and I did for a little while. But it's a nice co-op game that my husband and I can play together and it gives me the opportunity to do a lot of things that would sound incredibly pathetic once said out loud or typ
Yesterday, I realized, with quite a stab of pain, that I have not created any artwork for AT LEAST a year!! And my DA page has been neglected for two years! *sigh* Granted, there have been many things in my life to take up my attentions - I've been married, become a Marine wife, relocated, and have had a baby in all of this time - but, honestly, I just can't bring myself to blame any of this... I just let my passion fall to the wayside, and I don't really know why.
I miss it. But, I don't know when I will be able to reintegrate it into my life...
