I've been on this website almost a decade and I've really enjoyed my time here. Time, I think, that is going to become shorter and shorter in the future. The good news is, I've gotten into my top choice grad school! The bad news is, I have to hit the books and live there basically!!
Art has always been the best kind of escape for me, and I've consistently done my best work when I draw for myself. However it doesn't hurt to have people to share it with, which is why you guys are so awesome. I honestly can't believe people follow for the random things I throw up on here, but I'm so happy anyone likes it.
Let's be clear, I'm going to finish the Copernicus Series if it takes me a century (and it might) and nobody even reads it anymore, but because of the anticipated academic rigor of the next 4 years, I'm going to be posting more and more slowly. But I'll still be here! Lurking, probably.
As thanks for all you guys actually watching and liking what I do, I wanted to do a thing. I meant to do it when I hit 100k page views actually but look, I'm always late to the party.
I'm going to be choosing one person and offering a free commission for them. Strings attached--portraits only, no landscapes (for real you don't want a landscape from me), any single character they want (to be safe let's say PG 13 please >_>).
TLDR: I love you guys, thanks for liking my art, want a chance at a free commission? Comment on this post.
If you're interested, please leave a comment below telling me what you think I should paint more of (or what you WOULDN'T like to see more of, like fifty 3/4 portraits is enough am I right), how you think I could improve my skills, etc etc!! If you don't care, then just tell me what your favorite animal is and why
This post is going to close 6/25, at which point I'll put you all into a random generator type thing and pick a winner. I'll contact that winner via deviantart message so keep an eye out! I wish I could offer more paintings, but as always, time is limited.
Thanks for 8 (oh my god) years of artsy fun!
