If you like pallanophs, and didn't get the memo... I do now have a Tumblr for pallanophs and related headworld work, along with various other personal junk that I try to keep off this site. Here: pallanophblargh.tumblr.com/
That said, if you do not
like pallanophs, or me, for that matter, then you should keep well away from said tumblr. If you go there expecting fandom drooling/pokemon/wolves whatever the flavor of the year currently is, you will be sorely disappointed.
Of course, if you are watching me here and expecting any of the above items... well, you'll still be disappointed. It's just not happening, as it's not my cup of tea.
Speaking of dA related things, can anyone explain to me this whole upsurge in these adoptables or whatever they are? They're flooding everything recently, it seems. Much confuse.
On the subject of commissions: Well, they're still basically closed. I cannot keep up with even day to day life as of late, and since my least favorite time of the year is approaching, I must resign myself to finishing what I have on my plate. When and if they do open again, there will be an announcement, and prices will be raised. For estimates, look to the right hand side of my journal page for a box titled "COMMISSION PRICES."
Call me ridiculous if you want, but I am also considering adding a tax to any commission whose subject matter I find tedious. (wolves being the key culprit here; I do not want to become a canine artist, sorry.) These prices will be given to any customer up front, and once a price is agreed to, it will be finalized. This is my way of being able to pick commissioned work I want to complete, and it can deter less serious buyers looking for wolf/etc. art. If someone does however, agree to said tax, I will feel more fairly compensated for drawing something I'm not that interested in drawing. Like any artist, I should be able to establish my own prices and pick what I want to be commissioned for. Wouldn't you do the same?
That said, entirely too many people are still underpricing their work. STOP IT. Do it for your sake and for the sake of everyone else. I know this has been trumpeted about from blog to blog a lot lately, but it can't be said enough. So, those offering commissions, take a moment or two to review your prices. Are they far too low for the amount of time spent? Then raise them, for feck's sake! Nobody should be putting up polished work for less than $15. It's insanity. Commissioners, if you can't afford art, then don't bother asking! Or save up. Don't berate someone into lowering their prices for you.
Well! That felt good. In more positive news, I hope to submit my most recent painting to Spectrum:
It's not entirely likely I'll make it into the book this year, but it's the best I'm going to do for now. No, you don't need to wish me luck, but you can if you'd like.
Back to work!
