After successfully getting into a decent art school, I have been learning new coloring techniques. Granted, I have only started this process, but I intend to use them to clear my list of backordered commissions. Even if it kills me. Seriously, I have had one commissioner waiting for over three years waiting for me to get enough confidence to do justice to his idea. I know I should have done something for him a long time ago, but lack of confidence has held me back.
I am going to get to everyone's images as soon as I can. I also want to give the images the attention they deserve. I will do my best to not only get them out, but to make them look good. If my commissioners are happy with what I've done (and the first is very happy, so I hope the trend will continue with the remaining seven), I'll open myself up to timely commissions once I've cleared my schedule. If anyone is interested, that is.
I may also take up on his offer to participate in SketchFemme.com's ongoing theme contests. I don't think I'll do well there, but it'd be nice to be there with some of the greats. Maybe I'll even get a vote! There is also the stories I have been writing and will illustrate, but those are still a ways off. Character design continues, and I should post some here sometime once the designs are finalized.
So please continue to be patient, everyone. Sketches, Inks, and Color images are on the way.
