COMMISSION JOURNAL! (OPEN!)
Since my 5$ Sketch Offer went over so well, I decided to open a commission journal until I can get a proper commission sheet done. Let's see where the age-old system of supply and demand will take me... I'll no doubt have to adjust my prices, but I want to see how well this does.

COMMISSIONS ARE OPEN!
===

MY PAYPAL: sandberg.sebastian@telia.com


My rules and terms:
- It doesn't hurt to ask me if I'll draw something, I'll just say no if I'm uncomfortable with it.
- Yes, I will draw NSFW stuff, but I won't post it here unless it fits within DA Guidelines.
- No copyrighted characters like Sonic the Hedgehog, Spider-Man... In other words, you have to request either a random character that I make up on the spot (like an unnamed ninja bunny cook), your own OCs, or ask for permission from the owner of the character rights. If it's a surprise gift for someone, then I'll make exceptions, but that still rules out officially licensed characters such as Sonic

The uphill battle for online content creators
Hello everyone.  Recently I had a good amount of stuff on my mind in relation to online art communities.  After freelancing for over 6 months I feel like I have more to contribute to the conversation but this is more of a serious topic which I would certainly like to hear what you all have to say, but let's dive into it.
It's no surprise that online art communities are different from how they were even five years ago.  As more social media outlets have become more prominent and sites such as youtube and twitch have gained significantly more traffic, the way that art sites and communities operate have changed.  Many of these larger sites have modified algorithms and policies that make it incredibly hard for new artists to thrive.  Youtube has become increasingly difficult to have traffic on more creatively oriented videos with demonitization plaguing many content creators and are instead promoting people with already high traffic for better advertising revenue.

What Helped Me Improve My Art
This is some information I wish I would have known just starting out. Hope it helps other people as well. 

1.) you are going to need to draw nude models. Get over your modesty and draw the human body. I suggest this site  https://line-of-action.com/practice-tools/figure-drawing/ Or get this paid generator to use your own resources. https://cubebrush.co/marketplace?q=gesture%20drawing&product_id=d9q6yq

3D models are fine, but they don't help you learn how gravity and weight affect the body. So keep this in mind when using them.
Do gesture drawings at least once a week using as few brush strokes as possible to show the energy in the model. The more you do this the fester and the more fluid your art will start to look
Also, do life drawings by painting the nude models after intensifying the lighting so you can see how light forms to the body. 
2.) Research the golden rat

Critique my artwork!

Mature Critique Stamp by Toxic-Decay Mature Critique Stamp by Toxic-Decay Mature Critique Stamp by Toxic-Decay

Despite having a 2:1 in Computer Animation, i want to become a concept artist-if there's something that looks wrong, please tell me how to improve said piece(s).

I'm so tired of comments like:

"This is such an awesome picture."

"The pose is well done"

And anything similar to that.......

I'd rather have comments like this:

"This is a good picture; though i've notice [insert something wrong with picture and tips on how to adjust it /not to make the same mistake again via tutorial link] But on the whole, not too shabby"

^^^^^^^^^^^^
That is a critique, the only time i may ask for no critique is if i'm venting about something personal.

I can't improve if all you give me are ass-kissing comments.

Stuff to do....

Not long to go, just got to get through this week and next....then i'll be off for the summer for 6-7 weeks...

And boy do i need it.

I'm going to try and work on a overdue birthday gift for :iconmeckelfoxstudio: and one upcoming gift for :iconspeedslide:
I'll try and write up a journal this weekend..its been so busy for the past month or so and I've been recovering from a panic attack i endured from a trip i went on yesterday (still pretty shaken up by it).
My apologies for not submitting much art and updates lately...

I've just been so busy at work; that i barely even have the energy to log onto Skype/Discord etc and converse with others.

I will try and make an effort...
