I find traditional art more fun than digital art, so though I do a lot of digital art, I consider myself more of a traditional artist. :dummy:

Though they don't appear often in my work, I really enjoy drawing fish and chains, and some other odd objects.

I'm also a cosplayer, though I'm fairly new to it and still trying to work out make-up and all the more complicated things. But I would love to find some new cosplay friends, so I wouldn't mind messages if you have a question/comment on cosplay or something is simply on your mind!

Feel free to ask any questions ^^

Commissions?

Journal Entry: Tue Apr 21, 2015, 4:34 PM
I guess these have been on my mind lately since I feel like I've seen a lot of posts and journals around such as "Need extra money for ___, opening commissions" and some of my friends talk about raising money with their art commissions:

Is there a special trick to getting commissions (for real money, not on other websites for fake currency) or something?
I advertise a bunch by putting a link to my information in every submission, but I get them very rarely online (i.e. once every 3-6 months MAYBE). even on websites that are supposedly good for commissions.

I already comment on and favorite others' work, and submit to groups all the time. Perhaps it's because I don't post as often as other people do so I don't get as many followers? Or my style isn't just something people are looking for? Or maybe it has to do with being online and not in real life, since I've done better in my experimental Artist Alley ventures?
