First off: I'd like to give a special message to all of my commissioners.
I am sincerely apologetic to all of you who had to wait so very long for me to fulfill your requests. There is truly no excuse for what I did, or failed to do, other than simple procrastination, something I should have been honing a long time ago. I also should have utilized those short bursts of artistic drive to get my work done much sooner. None of you should have had to wait as long as you did, and for that, I am deeply sorry.
However... I wanted to thank every one of you for commissioning me at all. Your generous donations were not just extra spending money for me. They got me through a difficult time in my life, when my previous place of employment was only giving me one or two days of work a week, and I was barely able to get by. I had just enough money from commissions to keep myself fed and put fuel in my car, until I was able to land a new job at Best Buy, which I still hold today. Had it not been for you guys, I don't think I would have been able to even afford food for myself. Now that each commission has been completed, I not only feel accomplished, but incredibly thankful to each one of you for your assistance in my time of need. I appreciate you all for helping me out when I needed it the most, and you have my gratitude.
Now then... 2015. How's it treating everyone? So far, it's been a pretty ho-hum year for me. Now that the holidays are over, Best Buy's pretty much a ghost town. It's hard to make even a small budget over there, but I'm glad we don't work on commission, otherwise I might be in trouble. I'm paid hourly, so no matter what kind of work I do, I still get paid just for being there! Although, making enough money to bonus would be nice... So I'd really like to get some more business back in there soon!!
Art-wise, I admittedly don't have a whole lot of direction on where I should go next. With the commissions, I had a list of things that needed to be done, but now I don't know what I should do! I do know that one major goal I hope to accomplish this year is to make some solid profile images for each of my characters, not only to use for character reference, but also because nobody knows everything that I know about my own characters! There's so much for them to tell, so much to share, and I've gotta get it out there.
But next up in line, I think I'd like to do another fetish-y pic... But what should I draw? Should I do some fan art for any ladies I've been meaning to see tickled for a while? And if it is fan art, should they come from video games I've been into, or from an animated series instead? Or perhaps I should draw a piece featuring my own original characters having some fun of their own? I haven't the foggiest! No guarantees, but what would you guys like to see? One of these days I'll get another dA subscription and maybe put a poll together for everyone to cast their votes, but for now, suggestions only!
