Reclusion

Reclusion

How many artists/creators on here still lurk, but for all your desire to return to posting your artwork actively like the old days you just can't overcome that wall of social burnout that comes with being a freelancer on the internet? I post pretty actively on facebook Battletech groups these days because of my heavy involvement in that franchise, and I manage my patreon page fairly well, but after that and also interacting with my freelancer team and clients I just don't have enough social energy left to keep this page up like I used to. I really want to focus on DA again but it's a real struggle. I've got a mountain of artwork I could post, but it's so much work, and then I know those posts will generate all your replies that I'll feel bad ignoring haha. I am still here though, just here quietly.

Freelance Commission Artists Feature!

Freelance Commission Artists Feature!

Haven't done one of these in a long time but I keep being reminded that I should, considering I'm not available for commission personally. I'm going to put together a list of freelancers on DA that are looking to be commissioned. If you want to be considered for this feature, send me a private note asking me to check out your work. I want to see: -Art skills that demonstrate you'll be able to deliver consistent results. -A commissions journal or deviation sheet that shows your rates and terms. (critical) -Understand I wont accept everyone, and most of my fans are scifi focused so scifi art will get more bites. -I'll pick some of my favorites

Support me on Patreon!

Support me on Patreon!

Here we go again, my patreon is back for a third time haha. This time around I'm launching with a new angle, one that I've considered in the past, but just received a huge content incentive boost to. My patreon page is now cleared to feature Battletech content, including previously and upcoming secret project stuff for subscribers to get a sneak peek at. If you're a Battletech fan and want to see more of how things come together on the art side, and especially if you want some hints at what we're working on for future stuff, this is the place to be and I hope you'll throw in your support of my work. The better funding goes this time around,

Thanks much for the Llama, and many thanks to you for bringing us all this absolutely epic Battletech art. Obviously done on a level that only a hardcore fan could deliver.

Hey Anthony, listen, i just watched this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Px46aTSuX2g If you have a Patreon too, you might want to check this out. Potentially you might have to find a new payment service.
