NEXT SKETCH JAM ON TUESDAY AUGUST 26TH @ 6 PM CENTRAL TIME!

For those of you who don’t know, my regular commissions are open! I’m also doing another Sketch Jam this coming Tuesday (which I can hopefully get more people scheduled for than last time lol) for those with smaller budgets!

If you’re interested in snagging a slot for my Livestream Sketch Jam, check this page out!

If you’d like a regular commission, click here for quick info + prices!

I’m having a really rough spot right now trying to keep us from delving any more into our savings for moving out while my husband looks for jobs, and after a terrible mishap at the grocery store today I charged over $100 to the bank account I had put back for moving out.

I’m working through my current commission queue, and while I still have not forgotten about those with commission credit, I need to go ahead and get some new work in before we completely go broke and I have a panic attack lol. Please, please if you can’t afford to commission me, reblog this obnoxious (albeit tiny) post, or let some friends know!

THANKS EVERYONE! :)

After some deliberation I added a seventh rule to my list regarding referencing poses from other artists’ drawings. I’ve had it happen quite a few times lately, and while I’m sure my clients meant no harm or didn’t understand the frustration at having to work from a drawing for a pose ref, it made me incredibly uncomfortable in a few instances and it’s happened one too many times lately so I’m adding a new rule to my list.

(Also, please don’t apologize if you did send me drawings for pose refs lol - you didn’t know and I didn’t mention it so it’s not your fault at all)

If you absolutely cannot find a photo ref for your pose idea, that’s okay! I won’t be angry, I won’t be upset! Send it to me anyway, and I’ll draft up my own ref using my 3d model program from DAZ Studio.

All I’m saying is do not expect me to copy another artists’ drawing for a pose line-for-line because that’s when I will get upset. I’m not here to copycat other artist’s poses, even if you are paying me money. That’s just tacky and absurd to expect of an artist in the first place.

rynnay replied to your post:Life News
Honestly I think getting a part time job would take a LOT of stress off you D: it would be more dependable than freelance and freelance would act as a nice padding whenever you get it… I hope things start to look up for you soon!
Yeahh that’s what Robert was saying too. I told him I think I’ll apply to just that job since I know I could handle it and I’d have a friend that works there lol, and if I get it then great if not we’ll try and workout the freelance thing. vuv

Well I figured I’ve put this off long enough so it’s time to update you guys on the home situation. My mother drove us out to Pensacola last week (I believe?) to look at some properties and rentals we’d spent days narrowing down to. Turns out the entire city is essentially a terrible dump aside from a very small slice across the bay lol. I was a bit disappointed, but I’m glad we made the day trip out there to make sure we were making a good decision.

Hey guys, I know this is an odd thing to ask - but do any of my art friends/mutuals/followers have any resources or links I could look at to help me learn how to stylize my artwork more? I’m hoping to eventually gravitate towards a simpler, more children’s book style of illustration so I can market my skills better towards that type of client. I need to start picking up project jobs and commercial work, but I know my artwork needs some work.

Any helpful sites/tutorials/resources would be great, or if you just have some of your own advice to give me some tips on steps I could take to work on it! I’ve been making baby steps of my own (simplifying my painting style down to more simple shading, focus on color scheme, no texturing, etc.) but I’m a little lost on how to best approach more children-friendly art styles I guess.

IDK, if you have any ideas/suggestions/links email them my way at dustedpages@gmail.com or just shoot me an ask/fanmail/reblog lol I don’t care! I’m going to spend the afternoon looking up some of my own hopefully while I work on fixing my portfolio. x_x;

Some ballpark examples of what I mean by “more storybook stylized” is examples like this and this. (artist plugs! c8)
