First off, two pics of Blast Off and Onslaught. TAAO is killing me with these two. I'm so sad to see this series end. I hope something continues along this line some how.

I've been playing with paints recently. I love using these. There is something really relaxing about painting.

Just keep swimming )

Currently I'm working on a painting of Soundwave. I've been up and down emotionally these past few days, so he's going a bit slower than I would like. But! He is also bigger than the mini bots. The minibots are on 4x6 canvases, Soundwave is on 8x10.


I'm having ideas for other series portraits. Along with Soundwave I want to do Rumble, Frenzy, Ravage, Lazarbeak, and Ratbat, only they would be on the 4x6.
B thinks I should do something similar with Blaster and his cassettes.

Then, there is the idea to do 4x6 of individual combiner mechs and then an 8x10 of the combiner itself. This one sounds a bit grandiose to me. I've not done a combiner before and I would want to do too much detail -_-'

B also has a lot more confidence in me than I do. He's gotten me thinking about doing commissions. I've shared some comments I've gotten on my paintings and he thinks people would buy my work. I'm tempted to throw it out there, but I just don't have confidence that I would be able to produce what someone asks for. I'd be to worried about what exactly they would want. There is also the fact that everyone is opening commissions right now. Why get one of my paintings when one could buy something better from another artist?

I also have no idea what to charge. I'm not really out on materials, those are fairly cheap (at least for me). Shipping could get tricky. I did go to a couple of comic shops that were selling similar sized paintings. I think the 4x6 were $25, and I kind of felt that my skill was a bit higher than that artists. But, $25 seems too high to me. I was thinking $10, and B said I was aiming too low. I don't know how much they were doing 8x10s.

Any thoughts on any of the above? Suggested prices you would buy for? Would you request a commision if I put one up?

I almost managed to draw something every day this week,somehow missed Wednesday, and most are finished. AKA I may or may not color them. B introduced me to a site that has a somewhat active drawing request thread. It's given me some fun projects this weekend. B is super happy that I'm drawing more and having fun with it. Only bad part is that it has caused me to seriously fall off my MarchofRobots since I'm not drawing robots. Whoops. I'm sure I'll get back to them. B has given me silly request ideas, and the draw thread has given me some fun ideas of my own. B is also really happy because he thinks I do female bodies well. He hopes some of this will make me brave and get more adventurous in my work. ;)

I'm on night shift this upcoming week so it will remain to be seen if I can manage to function enough to continue some type of a drawing streak.

What kinds of communities and groups are out there for tf fans? I see people often talking about discussing things with people and I don't know where they do this. Am I missing out on groups and communities out there or do I just need to approach others and try to get conversations started?

Finally after 2 years I'm updating this. I actually have several scenes written for this story, many more in my mind, but I don't know how to get it all mushed together.

So This came across my Tumblr dash and I'm really happy it did.
http://sammy-phoenix.tumblr.com/post/157423649573/princesawangfei-so-to-those-that-might-not-get

Lots of great poses, great palettes, and a RNG when ya just don't know what to do or don't have any requests.

Here's a Drift I did using 4D and palette 20 )

I didn't get any drawing done today. I did get some ideas down for my UM/TC fic from long ago, during some rare down time at work today.

I had to work over two hours. )

I'm trying to get more active in communities. I've fallen in and out due to life and have lost lots of connections I felt I had. It's so hard to just talk to people again after not for a long while. These types of interactions make me extremely anxious. But I'm really going to try now that life has some what settled down.

I'm really trying not to be hard on myself and my art drawings. I follow several artists and sometimes seems by a lot of their work really brings me down and discourages me. They are in a relationship place I had planned to be able in by now when I was younger. I use to be really good at anime/cartoon style works. But I'm so out of practice and I just can't seem to get myself motivated to improve and get to where I once was.

I wanted to be an animator. Now I look at movie companies and video game companies and think ... I could have worked on that. But I didn't pursue that like of work. Instead, I listened to my mother and went into the science field. You know because it pays good money. Ha! What a joke that was. Barely being paid above minimum wage, working 60+ hours a week. Only to move from job to job because money always dried up since everything was grant based. At least now I have a somewhat science job that pays well with regular hours and time and a half over time. It's still not where I wanted to be.

I'm mad at myself for letting my love of drawing and talent I had slip away. Now I just compare my drawings to all the other drawings on the wide net and want ta just stop again. I want to draw for myself, because I enjoy it and like what I make. But stupid technology. I like something I did for stupid fun and have to share it. I get little response back and it just discourages me for some reason. It's like I want so many other people to really like my work, and the couple of compliments I get just doesn't give me the boost I hope for. I want to get over that need of being popular or liked or whatever. I don't even know that many people on line. I'm not sure what I expect.

Anyways, I finally managed to get myself to start on my Soundwave/Cosmos Christmas piece. I'm not liking it now because of the reason be in the above rant. I'm hoping tomorrow I'll be back to normal and like what I've done.
