Ok so I would of wrote this last night but I was in pain… despite excitement- I have to go to doctor tomorrow but…kasdjfjsdf here goes—-
SO I would just like to say, that I am now suuuper excited for con things, because I have a long time friend from XI (since like I think 2006?) who works for a printing company and is willing to work with me on getting small/medium/large poster prints for anime cons at a good deal! MAYBEAVOCALOIDFANARTBOOKTOO?HHMMM. It’s so cool! He told me about all the stuff he see’s in there and he even does cover’s for manga like One Piece! He’s told me before but last night we got into a huge conversation about it! He showed me some stuff he’s gotten from work that are original and I guess they were extra prints, he said they always get anime/manga stuff, even lol some softcore hentai and stuff! He told me about the sizes for things from small to large, the large posters are perfect and I can have them laminated too! Also he mentioned sponsoring my con table, we’ll have to talk more about it but he’s super supportive and likes helping me a lot… which means the ENTIRE world to me… It almost brings tears to my eyes, that he’s so caring and take’s such good care of me and offers so much for me… even though sometimes he can be a complete troll…
So excited! I can’t wait to finish current commissions! I still want to take sketch ones while I work on my anime con stuff though, so no worries for those who were interested in my sketch deals! ^^ I’ll still need to make some grocery funds for my trip since I’ll be staying a whole month with Matthew.
Lately I been looking at a lot of artists who sell either ecchi/hentai through PDF files on sites/paypal, like “8 images for $8 dollars” or 10/10 deals ect. using their original characters and such, so once I get done with commissions I think I will start doing this along with anime con stuff, I think I will start off with a 5 images for $5 it will be original characters, maybe even some sora? My first collection will be probably random girls I’ve created, then I will start going with themes like Cat girl collections, witch/monster girls- maids? ect! Things I enjoy drawing aside from FFXI… and game related things, personal things. I -MIGHT- consider CONSIDER doing a FFXI pin up/ecchi collection and ask guest artists to help and they get part of the money that is made off the collection. IT ALL DEPENDS! Like I said first on my list is finishing commissions, then starting up on con stuff, and then as I go along ^^ I’ll work on maybe a few images!
But it’s a cool idea!
and also I want to leave it here so I don’t forget…
@Petit: Yes it does! :D Maybe since it sounds fun to you I can ask you to be a guest artist some day!
@Chocopies: I’m glad it sounds good! I won’t be focusing on XI really, but maybe later down the road!
So I’m posting this for my commissioners mainly, I try to keep them up to date really with what’s going on with my life, if not directly, to them here or through a journal post where I know they will see. Lately I’ve been kinda down on my art so it’s been hard, I been putting in a few applications here and there because commissions just aren’t steady money it’s bursts when I need boosts for trips, or help with funds for gifts and stuff, and I work it off. Which is REALLY nice that I even have some income, when I know a few people who don’t even have that or a job. So I am very thankful. I think in order to help me keep a steady pace with job applications cause honestly even if I get a call back and nothing comes from it, it just depresses me even more (NOW I know you cannot let it get you down cause it’s the process) but it happens cause I’ve been looking for a job for so long… (almost close to signing up with this temp agency my brother got a job within a week from, but you have to pay them til they find something, which I cannot afford now) but anyways, the whole point of this post is, that I want to make a schedule, and I will only be working on commissions those days, and I will have my days off- but I want my commissioners to know I’m just not working on their stuff doing nothing, just because I don’t have a job doesn’t mean I’m not trying to find one, because right now, a job is my main focus, because I need to start saving for my move. Despite me having a sort of job offering over there now, I want to have a good amount of money before I even think of packing.
