So I'm tired, and I'm probably an idiot for writing this, but I need to get it off my chest and a status update wouldn't be enough for it.
I know I have this thing where I promise to get back to working on requests and points commissions, and then do something that isn't that. And it just occured to me that some of you might not like how long it takes for me to put out art, or that I might be scamming you out of points. I know this might be a completely unfounded fear, but I just want to go ahead and apologize to anyone who ever thought anything along those lines, and I want to reassure people that this is not the case.
My problem is that, aside from sudden illness or Nintendo consoles, I have the attention span of a gnat. I tend to exhaust quickly when working on pics for a long time, or suddenly get ideas for pics or stories that I really wanna do, just because it's different from what I'm working on, and I often end up doing multiple pics at one time. Combine this with my overestimating my own abilities in producing work at a reasonable rate, and you have a situation where I've taken on too much at once, and then end up making other things as well. Needless to say, I'm not a guy who' very good at managing his workload This isn't an excuse for my behaviour or delays in commissions/requests, it's just me explaining why so much of the stuff I've put out so far has been nothing to do with what's on the itinerary. I want to reassure everyone that I have no intention of scamming or anything like that. The fact that I've put out the vast majority of commissions probably says that anyway, but I never had any malicious intent in doing what I do, and I'm sorry if I ever came off that way. I made this page because I wanted to share dumb art of coils, smooches and hypnosis for peeps to enjoy, and I'd get nothing out of turning this into a points laundering scheme.
With that said, I'm going to have to say two things:
- If, for whatever reason, you feel that you cannot trust me to complete a commission in a reasonable time frame, you are more than welcome to request a refund, either via notes or commenting on this journal here. I will do everything in my power to return the points that you paid me for your commission, and I will change my Itineary to reflect this. I won't hold it against you if you honestly feel like I'm not providing the kind of service you want, because honestly? I can't imagine having to wait as long as some of you have for me to put your commissions out.
- In the future, I am going to have to severely limit how many requests and commissions I take on at a time. Not only do I end up taking on too much, I also find that I end up neglecting commissions to do my own original art, or vice versa. Perhaps I'll limit it to three commissions, one being a mini-comic, and two requests? Also, if I feel that I can't do a commission to the best of my ability, I should really just sack up and say so instead of blithely accepting out of a desire to not seem rude.
I want to thank all of you for your infinite patience and understanding, and also for sticking by me throughout this nonsense. It's people like you that make me feel good about making the pictures I do - nothing feels better than having strangers on the internet validate your weird scribblings!
Also, after this journal goes out, I am going to focus almost entirely on the commissions and requests, with two exceptions:
- A 300 Watcher Milestone mini-comic that is also a remake of one of my most popular pictures.
- A contest entry for .
Thanks for reading, and have a nice day.
Also, Breath of the Wild is a good game. Go play it.
