I'm still not sure where to go with this.
I get notes and asks and questions about commissions relativly often and i find i have to keep turning them down.
Having abit of a hard time!
Currently, as of right now. I might be having an artblock.
After finishing the Mocha picture which i... honestly just adore. I dunno ijust love it, i feel that picture should have been another giant leap forward for me. But instead i got demoralised, which lead to laziness which lead too... well nothing. I'm still lazy.
Being in such a state i already don't feel comfortable doing commissions.
The other problem i'm having with them is that... i don't think i want to do them the same way.
I already said before that i'm no longer going to flip from a sketch commission to a full 4 page comic to a 10 part sequence sorta thing anymore. If i wanna do only single colors then i wil.
That was a nightmare the first time, second time i took forever once again.
Commissions often bring me down. I'm often feeling restricted by them in the sense of "i should be doing a commish but i wanna do something else" sorta thing... like homework. Hof's a genuine Bart Simpson.
However, i do still like doing em. I like hearing an idea, getting excited to draw it and then do it. But this means i'm gonna have to start picking favorites if ya know what i mean.
When it comes to commissions, it's difficult for me to say "I dont like your idea. Change it or i'm going to take another commissioner"
They're commissions! It's impossible for me to do that.
But that is the state i'm in. And thats's what's been holdingme back.
Becuase of this i'm not sure if i start working with a list like i used too. Or to just... accept anyones notes, hear an idea and then SELECT 5-10 myself.
Or maybe just do one every once in awhile. Just one. I dunno!
It's tough for me.
I'll figure it out but first, gonna get outta this down.
