Does anyone actually read these? I draw for me. Most my work ends up in the trash about a minute after finishing...if I ever finish it. I draw bc it relaxes me. I almost never take commissions...I don't want to draw for you. I'm not going to draw ur next tattoo. I don't want to draw ur dead mother's face. Art is my comfort. The moment I do it for anyone but me is the moment its not mine...now I'm locked in...it becomes an obligation. The worst is when they hand u a picture & say "I want that exactly!" that's when I give them their original picture back 2 days later & say "here...this is exactly what u wanted."
Thank you everyone. unfortunately, i can't afford all the fancy schmancy computer programs that would take my art to the next level...and believe me, i would love nothing more but to have a chance to go to school, hone my skills and use that stuff. but as (almost) all of u artists know, sometimes ther's no money to b had unless u have an "in" or some kind of "x factor". Me? I'm just poor. All my money goes to paying rent and bills, occasionally some video games, child support and gifts for my gf and daughter. I can barley afford new pencils and art tablets...let alone stuff to color with. So, i gotta do what i can with what i got...some time
L8ly I've gotten back into reading. The book series I'm reading is called "the sword of truth" by terry goodkind. The book I'm reading is 2nd in the series called "stone of tears". The 1st book is called "wizard's 1st rule".
These are some of the most amazing books iv read...mayb evn bttr than the Night Angel Trilogy (which, if u r a fan of fantasy, u shld check out both. Read the night angel 1st as it is shorter in being a trilogy. The sword of truth is a very long series).
Some of my art is inspired by both these boox. Check'm out!
