I hope you've all been enjoying the new year. ^_^
I wanted to get a journal out to address my current state when it comes to requests for commissions. Just to let everybody on the same page.
I've been getting a few commissioners who are excited to work with me as of late and so that's prompted me to make this e-mail.
First off. I just wanted to say it's super humbling to get that sort of attention. I'm so happy that people enjoy my work enough to want to get some done for themselves. I'm nothing but thankful and happy when I see someone is curious to get a commission off me.
Unfortunately I don't take commissions unless it's stated in a journal that I'm taking on "X" number at the time.
Yes, sometimes and rarely one slips under that process. Usually a good friend, a long-time commissioner or someone who presented an idea I just couldn't say no to drawing at the time.
And please, if you want to continue to share ideas than please feel free to do so!
This all said, please don't ask on a weekly basis If I'm available. There's currently 4 things in my life that's taking up a lot of my time:
1: Full time job. 45 hours a week full time.
2: I'm currently job searching as well.
3: My own art interests. Those adorable adult CMCs won't draw themselves you know!
4: Leisure time. Namely video games.
So to repeat. Feel free to present ideas to me by notes and I'll be happy to give price quotes. But that's not an accepted contract to that on that commission at that point in time.
