man, i literally only post a journal once a month at best. i have nothing to say! is there anything you guys want to hear me say??
anyway, some thoughts:
actually important though -- as i have recently found out, the note system has been really buggy for me
and some notes might not have gotten through. it also takes a really long time for them to load, for some reason. i'm fairly sure this is only a temporary thing and could be linked to the fact that my uni internet isn't that great and has been especially bad recently, but for now, if you need me to see something, please leave a comment here or in my profile.
two watchers until 1000! i'm thinking of doing some sort of free-commission giveaway, but i'm not sure how it'd really work! probably something along the lines of "comment in this journal if you're interested!" and i'd put all the usernames in a randomiser. hmm... would you guys be interested in that kind of thing?
speaking of commissions, i'll probably have a new type available soon (for $10 or less)!! stay tuned!!
my tutor gave me an epiphany in studio class today... she was talking about perfectionism in creative people and i thought "surely that isn't me!" as i tend to cut corners or settle for something as long as it looks good, right? i am literally the laziest person
BUT THEN SHE PROCEEDED TO LIST EVERY TRAIT THAT I HAVE
SHE DESCRIBED ME EXACTLY
"perfectionists often struggle with deadlines because they're too afraid to put the marks down on paper if they're not immediately good enough" (<-- exactly why i procrastinate ladies & gents)
"they often take all the work onto themselves to make sure it turns out perfect and end up staying up late/exhausting themselves"
"they usually have high expectations not only of themselves, but for other people"
"perfectionists not only derive no satisfaction from a less-than-perfect performance, they even experience a sense of humiliating defeat"
I'M SO??? AUGHh MAN
so yeah that's me if anyone was interested
strangely enough, the time where i am at my most productive (like literally churning out 1-2 full illustrations a day) is two or three weeks before i'm due to start selling at conventions. maybe i'm just extremely motivated by money lol
okay bed time
