self-care is commissioning other artists to draw your OC when you don't have time to draw them yourself
i haven't drawn rubiel in a while, i missed my pouting son
y'all i passed my exam at art school! now i'm free
time to draw lots of ocs
one fan cover and two pages for school (that i abandoned to focus on more recent school assignments) and a quick seluna sketch to wind down
i've never been this productive in my life. pressure sure does wonders
boy i can't wait to be free
i have finals in about 20 days and!! i'm dying of anxiety!!!
joke is that i'm extremely productive under pressure and i managed to ink two pages in a day but at what cost
me on tumblr: hey i'm opening chibi commissions bc i need the money but don't have time for complex art because i'm in the middle of finals and-
one of my followers: YES HELLO LET ME COMMISSION YOU FOR SOME COMPLEX ART THAT WILL SUCK AWAY ALL YOUR TIME
hey masto when will we have a toot-editing feature so i don't have to delete and rewrite my toots every time i spot a typo
people don't understand that just because they can't hold digital art in their hands, it's no good reason to devalue an artist's work. they forget that digital art holds in itself hours of work, years of experience and self-improvement, years of sacrifices to get where we are. they forget that we artists live with our work and if we drew complex illustrations for 5 euros, we might as well let ourselves starve to death.
if i had a cent for every time i hear people complain that artists ask too much for digital commissions, i wouldn't need to take commissions anymore.
