Well, I've been doing a variety of things on the Internet, school-wise and art promotion-wise. Opened an Etsy store, trying to promote a Facebook business page, opened commissions, am taking an Animation class, Intro to Graphic Design class, working more with traditional materials such as gouache and acrylics...sometimes it's all so overwhelming to where it stifles my own personal wants for art. Especially because my 2D art instructor insists on asymmetrical balance and abstract art--both of which I've never cared too much for in my own art, and is also confusing to me at times. That kind of thing hinders me, so while it's an enriching class, I wish I could get more out of it and figure out why abstract and asymmetrical art is making me feel so frustrated that I don't even want to touch my sketchbook sometimes.
Well, enough of the depressing things~ As I said, commissions are open: ikitsumidaminito.tumblr.com/po…
and it's because I have stupid responsibilities, A.K.A. car insurance, gas, and tuition. Also art supplies because being an art student is expensive when you're expected to buy Holbein-brand gouache (which ran me $35 for 12 mL tubes of CMYBW). And also I need to invest in a laptop so I can actually work on digital art during my 4-hour break at school. That's so much time I could be working on art because unfortunately Macs can't run SAI, my choice program--and most of my classes are in the Mac lab. =3=
I'm debating on whether to upgrade to premium here on devart, but I'm not so sure with all of the monetary situations I have going right now. I'll figure something out.
