- I go through ALL my mail.
Ahhhhh my goooossshhh...I can't believe it's nearing the end of April ALREADY!
I was so hoping I would get more of what I wanted to get done before my birthday...
Unfortunately my restaurant job has been keeping me on my toes...
especially recently...long hours such as over 8 hours...
And on my days off from that job, I'm either babysitting or doing my other job for our family shop.
And if I got time, and I'm not eating or sleeping, I'll do what I can with my drawings.
Some may wonder how I'm able to do quite a few at once, well I'm either staying up REALLY late or I'm really pushing my limited time before work.
When my motivation spikes up, it's hard to not do anything else...believe me, when I'm up to it, it's not really that hard to get what I want to do done
. It's all about motivation for me.
I know I've said this over and over...I understand waiting sucks...But at least there two things to consider. 1. You don't need to pay for it. Your patience is more than enough payment. 2. At least I am improving on my drawing during the times I get to draw. So the drawing you receive will look better than it would have during the original time you requested. And I am still trying to improve. Here are a couple examples :
Like I said, I was really hoping to get down on it last month. But after thinking it over and over - I finally came to a salutation. For those who have requested more than one drawing from me, I will work on them one at a time.
And what I mean by that is, the person who is requesting will explain/describe what they'd like in the first drawing. And I will start from there. When the sketch is done I will show the person and see how they like it. Then if approved I will continue on to lining it, then if approved then I will finish coloring it. Then we repeat onto the next one.
It just seems more organized, plus doing it that way - the person has a lot of time to change any details or the whole request before I start since we will work on it one at a time.
And before anyone asks...I have over -
and yes, these includes messages from last year...and possibly may have lost a couple messages with custom art info due to the fact I wasn't online on my other accounts (not dA) for so long...I started responding in December and off and on in between then and now and I really do enjoy talking to others, especially my friends...and I really do miss them...
Just that the times I get the chance, it's just before work...
Believe me, if I wanted to - I would take a break from my restaurant job. But you so, I'm not in for it for the money. My boss is having a hard time finding good, hard-working employees. So I plan to stay and continue to work until we get more helpful workers.
We had two new workers who didn't even last a month...we have a couple new ones and they're looking promising but then we may be losing another worker just because they went to get into a different line of work. Which I don't blame them but when it's right before Summer starts - that's killing us... I get home tired and achin' to the bone from being on my feet all day...
Which is why more often now I just crash and sleep when I get home.
And why I want to respond to all (well most) of my messages, is because I want to let all of you who messaged me such meaningful, kind, beautiful messages that I truly appreciate each and every one of them. Because you take the time, a piece of your life to send me an inspiration to keeping drawing. And also a reminder that even when I think my art isn't the greatest, there is someone out there who sees something special about it.
And thank you all who wished me a happy birthday. It means a lot to me
It was an interesting birthday, I will be honest. A load of sudden accidents happened throughout the day causing the power to go and stay out throughout the day until the next. But I am just thankful that it didn't involve any of my love ones and that we were all safe. I only pray that the ones who were involved will be alright...
So this is the last update until I get through my messages which I am starting to get to right now. It will definitely take some time but it is something I need to do.
No about of thank yous nor words could express how grateful I am for all your patience, support, and understanding. CardinalSynFan Drake6401 Anthony-Demon AilwynRaydom sinako777 7marichan7 GaidenTheWolf Elicario Blu-the-Tiger
