All this free time has been extremely inspiring, and I want to make the best use of it while I'm feeling healthy and ready to work. I've been piling up on projects for myself, starting several so I never run out of things I can be working on.
In the meantime, my finances are missing the steady flow of income I was accustomed to for the past few years. To help offset some of the financial strain, I've begun working on commissioned drawings. At the moment I've opened up 4 slots for work, and I am excited to see how the process of working for strangers feels.
The best part is that I'm basically getting paid to practice drawing and try my hand at working with real materials again. It feels good to use pencil and colored pencil and all this drawing time is bound to help keep me in shape when it comes time to work digitally.
This week I drew a Baby Moana in watercolor and colored pencil and a colored pencil portrait of Gadget Hackwrench from Rescue Rangers.
I have a few commissions lined up so I will be working on fulfilling them in the coming days and weeks.
I also started on a Wonder Woman poster and Game of Thrones portraits.
I haven't had this much fun making stuff in ages.
