Hello everyone! ♥ How are you today? Well I hope!
I’m posting this journal, just as a heads up to any future commissioners, current commissioners, and what not. Why the heads up? Well, let me get to that.
As you guys should know from my really excited entry a couple months back, as of September, I am going to be a full time university student. What does that mean? It means that I am going to be quitting my retail job and focusing on my school work, whilst doing commissions on the side to stay afloat, and make my student debt a little less shitty.
That said, it’s going to be tough. I am going to be living the bare minimum for two years. But I know I can do it.
Before I got a job at my current workplace, I was a full time freelancer, barely making enough to scrape by. Now, quite obviously, that means I’m going to be in trouble, with 80-89% of my time going to school work, which is arguably going to be the most important thing. So, here is where I get to my point.
After I finish with my current queue of commissions, my prices are going to be raised. It may be by $5, or it may be by $10. But either way, they are going up. My time is going to be more valuable, and I’m going to have to make it worth my while to put the effort into it, and also so I can afford to eat, and have a roof over my head, without putting the entire burden on my very supportive boyfriend, (because lets face it, he isn’t exactly raking in the dosh either.)
It’s going to be really tight. For the most part, I’ll be vanishing from the face of the earth, only to be hovering over a paper, sketching. I will always keep in contact with my clients, though, so worry not!
So, that’s that on that topic. Now for the other information.
As of August 1st I will no longer be offering Sketches and Lineart as regular commission offers. When you commission me, I want to give you the best, completely finished pieces, that I can give. Flat colored images will still be offered, and I will have my special sketch/colored sketch commission streams. But these streams will be the only time to get these commissions.
I hope you all understand, and respect my decisions to make these choices, and I hope you wonderful people will support me as I make my way to my dream. I look forward to working with you, and speaking with you, and getting all of your feedback!
If you have any questions or concerns for me, please feel free to leave a comment!
Thank you so much, Everyone.
