Art, commissions, and life!

Wow! Things just will not calm down for me! I've been working away on quite a few things recently!

I've had a bit of a hard time with my art classes because of the teachers but my anthropology class is going okay. I'm frustrated with the classes but I think I'm going to talk about those separately from this post as this is just a quick update!

So things are going well relatively for me but I'm trying to better myself. I'm working on a lot of art and trying to get into my college still.

I recently took on commissions and I've been posting them to Ko-fi and deviant art mostly. I should branch out and try more websites but here is the information for those who read my blog!
If you would like a drawing from me feel free to ask on any site you find me or email me

A girl in orange and a griffon!

I've done more art! If you have a deviant art and want to see them on there I've added links to them directly in the captions!

The first is a girl in three colors, well mostly! I did this drawing for a class and had a great time with it! The goal was to use the analogous colors and I chose yellow, orange, and a red-orange. I also used a mixture of each at half opacity to get skin tones and other small details. I really loved how she came out but I may update her at some point.

The next piece is another sketch for a friend on twitter of his griffon character Chiswick! I really liked how this came out too but I think I'd redo the wings on a second go of it. (Chiswick's twitter is in the description on Deviant art if you want to see more of him!)

If you would like your own artwork from me I do take commissions and as of this posting they are open! I draw a fair amount of different things and would love to draw for you!
My prices are on weasyl or deviant art!

In odd places.

My friends are all in odd places, whether it is in the physical, mental, or emotional sense. For instance my friends from high school who I still am in contact with tell me about all of the craziness of their lives and while I like being an ear for them to complain to I really wish I could help them more. I'm very broke and that's not a secret nor will I pretend that it's not true. This means I can't help them in any financial situations. In my attempts to make any sort of a living I give a great deal of my time to work, school, and my family with the occasional side art commissions when I think I have time to do them. This means I don't have a lot of time to give them physically and this is compounded by the fact they don't all live in close proximity. Mentally and emotionally I'm not very stable and that means I am only helpful to them in these ways when I'm capable of it and that isn't always.

I try to be a good friend to those who stay with me and be a good girlfriend to Tae. I'm sure my friends would say I'm a good friend and Tae seems to think I'm a good girlfriend but I, myself, struggle with not doing enough for these amazing people in my life. My friends and family are really fantastic, supportive, and loving. I don't know where I would be without them and I hope they know how much I love them.
