So I've never turned down a commission before, and I just had this one, a bit complex, a lot more than I could chew for my own skill level(This would've been my biggest commission). I realized my art wasn't good enough to achieve what I wanted. I went on CA for feedback and the responses were blunt as usual, a specific one was more or less asking me, why take commissions if you can't deliver? I had been avoiding doing any art on the side. Considering this was much overdue, I went back and redid the image multiple times on photoshop and by hand, realized I knew nothing about anatomy or color theory.

I gave her money back and I feel much better now. Now I owe one more small thing to burn56 for being very very patient, who had commissioned me in order to help my cat, Jack when he was sick.

When I finish that, no more commissions. not for a long time, I have too many personal things I want to do, and owing art really prevents me from being able to do that. I have stuff from 2012 I still wanna finish. It's already 2 1/2 months into the year and I don't want to spend my entire year with a weight on my shoulders. I shouldn't be taking commissions for experimentation or as a way to learn how to do things, which I believe should be practiced at my own time and on my own work. I need to stop being so stubborn and stop making excuses with my art. CA certainly still intimidates me and I still wanna learn. Unfortunately, the truth kinda hurt for me but I feel much better now.

So I really have been meaning to comment on your last few uploads but my phone sucks and decides that I do not need to see your art and automatically deletes your art. Its looking amazing by the way, the improvement is vast in all areas. I miss you and I promise to give my phone a good smack down for its insubordination

I really am trying, and I share a computer with my fiancé and until we update the anti virus I don't want to risk a crash because she would be screwed for school. I also am looking at getting deployed again so we don't know but sketches I'll def be able to get up here. As for fb I don't know I can check
