Hopefully I can put this into words...

Journal Entry: Fri Aug 10, 2018, 10:10 PM


Hey guys,
I just wanted to try and put into words the way I'm feeling about my art right now.

First off, it has nothing to do with the quality of my art.  I love my art.  It's my projects that I hate and keep failing at.

To make a long story short, what happened is that I was selling a limited edition print this summer and got over 540+ people fav/like/reblog it across multiple websites, hence I thought that I would sell around 20 (a small portion compared to the amount of interest people showed).  Well, I ended up selling 8 and lost money on the whole thing.  


My frustration and feeling of worthlessness comes from the fact that in the past I've held fundraisers that raised hundreds of dollars, even though I wasn't offering anything more than a thank-you.  But now that I actually want to offer something in return for people's monetary support - let alone my art - I end up losing money.


Here's the thing though - I'm not mad that people aren't giving me money.  It's not that at all, and I don't want anyone to think that I don't like you because you won't give me money or whatever.  It's entirely on me and my perception of this whole situation.  It's just a horrible feeling getting more money from people via begging and not through hard work.  I don't know - it's hard to explain.  But it's incredibly invalidating.  And again - it has nothing to do with any of you.


The reason I'm considering cancelling my monster girl art book (which I was saving the reveal for as a surprise, but oh well) is because I was planning on doing a big, fun Kickstarter for it.  I was going to have different tiers, versions of the book, special gifts, guest artists, etc.  I wasn't even going to ask for a lot of money, but with how this whole situation with the print went down it makes me wonder why even bother?  My guinea pig blog has over a THOUSAND more followers than I do here on DeviantArt, so why the fuck would a big book project like this succeed when I couldn't even sell a simple print to literally 1% of my fan base?  LESS THAN 1%.

And this isn't the first time it's happened.  I once sold my work at an anime convention and ended in the hole hundreds of dollars.  I once had an art gallery at my college that my own teachers didn't attend.  Do you guys even know that I have art books published?  I have 2, with more on the way.  I've sold ONE copy in 4 years.  The ONLY successful art project I've ever done was Slarch this year.  But one successful art project in my decades of doing art is obviously going to be a blow to my self-esteem (or ego, if you want to say that).

I hope this all makes some kind of sense.  I hope I don't come off as begging for money - I have a stable job that pays for everything and honestly don't need my art to generate money.  It's just the feelings this situation has given me that is messing with me.

I own a lot of OCs that I draw once, then never again. Are there any you'd like to see more of?

:bulletpink: I'm a 28 year-old who loves to draw girls, girls, and more girls. I have a few animal characters (above is Onix, my albino peacock serval), but am still practicing with animal anatomy. I love fantasy/monster girls the most, especially slimes~
:bulletblack: I have my BA in Art Studio and my BA in Art Education, and a Single Subject Teaching Credential in Art, and am a high school art teacher. While my degrees are in traditional art (painting and drawing), I enjoy digital the most. I also do ceramics, printmaking, sculpture, and photography.
:bulletpink: I draw mainly original art, only doing fanart when I'm really inspired, it's for an art trade or a commission. I enjoy character design the most.
:bulletblack: I learn by referencing, so if any of my old works resemble something you've seen before, that's why. I mostly reference the amazing SenshiStock and faestock, though today I draw my poses from scratch or create them using the DesignDoll program.
:bulletpink: I am a self-taught digital artist who started out using a mouse for coloring. I now use a Wacom Intuos Pro to color with Photoshop CS5. My older lineart is completely done with a traditional pen, so that is why the lines are thick and sometimes sloppy. Now I am working with digital lineart. :heart:

I forgot to post all of the art I've been doing during my student streams, so get ready for a bunch of art :XD:
Finally getting around to replying/commenting.  I have about 400 deviations to go through and fav/comment, as well as a few journals.  Some of them are kinda old, but I'll still try to comment 
Feeling like a total failure when it comes to my art.  Thinking about canceling my Monster Girl book I've been working on for over 2 years and have done over 150+ drawings for.  Just wondering what the fucking point is.
My love and support go out to all of those participating in March For Our Lives.  My students should never have to go to school in fear of being killed, and neither should I.  In the only 2 years I have been teaching I have been in 3 code reds.  Enough is enough. #neveragain
