OKAY EDIT TIME...

Looks like FF sucks for uploading stuff for some reason... at least for me.

ANYWAY, you will see more uploads now that that crap is figured out.
Had a mega crazy week, but I do intend on replying to things and getting other things in order.
In the meantime, these guys escaped destruction and no one wanted anything at my show (haha surprise surprise) so they are up for grabs here.

Here is a link to the bird/bunny/bear dolls and their prices: www.furaffinity.net/view/87675…

ALSO, if anyone is interested in Quinton (another survivor), I am taking offers, but I am going to have a REALLY hard time parting with him so don't be offended if I don't accept the offer. I'm actually very much tempted to keep him but I also need to pay back my more than generous mom, so depending, I might loose my grip on my baby:

Oh, and just so yo guys know, that is Tibetan lambs wool I used for the hair (because I know some people disagree with that kind of thing so fair warning.)

If anyone is interested in large, wacky collages I can see about taking good digital pics of what I made for the show. Also, originals in my gallery are almost always up for sale, so just inquire via note. I know that a lot of people's budgets are restricted by important life things, so I tend to mark my prices down and am totally fine with payment plans and working things out with people.

Also, everything but the drawings are still up for grabs: www.furaffinity.net/view/86014…
The art show opening went fine. Didn't sell anything as usual (lol my stuff is too weird I guess) but maybe someone might buy something over the course of the month that it's up. The show was fun though! Met and mingled with some pretty nice people. I really like the atmosphere of an art show and getting to chat with a variety of people all coming for their own reasons. Gets me really excited and junk.

Been having a lot of mixed feelings about being an "artist" (I'm sure you guys know what I mean). This show will probably adjust my attitude one way or another, but not permanently. This road is twisty and turny with ups and downs galore. If I don't sell anything I'll probably lug my shit back home and put in storage with a feeling of defeat, and even though I'm capable of putting things in perspective and I'm rather resilient, I'll probably hang my head low for a little while. It's tough hearing that my stuff is merely "unique" and isn't worth buying/hanging up for the average person (perspective activate: People are pretty poor around here, so...). But I take the comment as a euphemism and wonder if my art passion is just an art addiction and if I'm true to myself to a fault. With all these negative thoughts I still manage to press onward somehow. But I can't tell if it's hope or obsession that pushes me. Maybe a bit of both XD

Now that I'm not immersed in the insanity of preparing for a show, I'll be back on track with commissions owed. After that... I don't know what. I was thinking about opening one slot at a time only when I get things done because I desperately need to save money, but I also need to focus on getting school over with lol

That's all for now. Comments and thoughts are welcome.
Well, I really don't know what else to say except that it is really touching that people have followed me over here, and you all get a big fat thank you <3 Might take me a bit to watch some of you back and communicate though, as I'm still organizing for the show in August and trying not to let the internet distract me, but I will slowly become more active over the weeks!  My moving over to DA as my primary art gallery is already refreshing and helping me focus on who I am as an artist and all the projects I have going on.

For those who are wondering, I just felt really stressed on the site I moved from because I am not primarily that kind of artist :C I love doing anthropomorphic and fantasy based art from time to time, but I feel like it was causing me to lose site of some things, as well as keeping me online way too much. I'm backing off from the internet in general! I'm not exactly quitting anything (I feel like that was the misunderstanding D: ) But that's part of the story! Other things are more private, but simply put, I'm stressed for myriad reasons, a little bonkers, and I don't like to take crap! I'm trying to balance out lots of things and I'm moving forward as an artist who focuses on promoting original works. I will rarely take commissions anymore just so I can do exactly what I want to do (even though I am absolutely grateful for all the wonderful commissioners I've had!) I feel better already! AND THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE SUPPORT! I know DA can be a bit dead sometimes and not everyone prefers it, so it really does mean a lot that some of you have followed me over here!
THANK YOU AGAIN AND AGAIN. You will see some stuff uploaded here soonish!
Hi guys!

I am need of some HONEST (brutally so, even) opinions here.
I am going to be part of an art show in August, and I'm fretting something fierce because I have found that most people do not find my original art appealing/wall worthy.
I need to find out what it is that I can make, without compromising too much, that would be highly sellable and at least somewhat enjoyable to do.
I would be very grateful for any suggestions.
I also NEED critiques of current work and reasons why my finished pieces might not be selling (aside from shitastic economy, I KNOW THIS ALREADY). I am trying to do AS WELL AS I CAN in this economy!
I can't take commissions right now, so no suggestions geared toward this. I get plenty commissions atm that fall within my comfort zone and time constraints, thank heavens.
Thank you for any well thought out input, guys!
Updated my page!:

~Cleaned up some things and, though I'm not expert word smith, I daresay my page contains better crafted paragraphs and a truer glimpse of the cellular mass and its supposed emergent properties that is me.

~Also, I updated my commission status. Closed for now. Check back in a month though if any of you are at all interested.
I really want to do more ballpoint pen works in the future, which I'll have available in tiny to (very?) large form, so something for every budget and fancy.

~I'm also FINALLY uploading things again.
I've been shamefully neglectful of my deviant art account but I'm going to take some steps to change that.
I do normally upload commissions on my other art community location, and you won't see most of those here because... well, I'm trying to keep this a little more "me", though I'm proud of, and appreciative of the commissions/commissioners over yonder.
But I'll reserve this for personal work and larger projects. Uploading will be still be slow but not so sparse!

~I'm also trying to use my premium membership to it's fullest. I don't want it to go to waste, so any suggestions or your own experience with it will be uber helpful! ALSO: how do I make my journal fancy?

~Finally, I will do my darndest to not ignore you guys from now on. I assure you it's been HIGHLY unintentional. I totally have way too much stuff going on, as I bite off more than I can chew, so to speak, and I've been doing the same thing on the two other art sites I "frequent". So trust me, it's not you guys :C It's me being a scattered, insane, overwhelmed nincompoop.

~~~I REALLY appreciate the attention in the form of comments and faves, and I will start acknowledging them as the precious time you took to care that they are. So an all encompassing thank you goes out to all of you!~~~

Woke up to find that my account has been upgraded to a premium membership by an anonymous member, so to that I say THANK YOU ANONYMOUS PERSON! <3 Gosh, that was super nice to include me :O What  nifty b-day present :D

SO, I want to make the most of it. Any suggestions, guys?
Sorry I've been so inactive. I'm going to upload things pretty soon and put up some commission info somehow. I don't know how to add additional pics to my ID. I want to put my commission pricing image up but yeah, I fail.

I have to go to work so tata for now.
Yup, so I'm here!

Recommend some groups/clubs or what have you if you want!

I'm actually a tad excited since it's been pretty positive so far. That's mostly just 'cause FA people followed me though, haha! Thanks guys! And thanks to any non-FA guys, too :P
