If you can technically call it "work." It's basically me doing what I seem to be doing on a daily basis: drawing stuff. I got two commissions and other things I am working on.
Among the other things is my comic work for both Lady Malmsteen and Rioichi Cooper.
Suffice to say; I have a lot of work to do. So this is why most of the time I am a bit apprehensive to fulfilling requests. Which is why if someone asks me to draw something I just am not to doing; I will not respond. And you know what....I don't feel bad about it. Why? Because I am not obligated to ask things from other people (unless I pay them....) nor do I demand people look at my work. I just let people naturally look at it. So if some people out there think I owe them just because they comment and like my work; think again.
On occasion if someone gives me a request that's authentically interesting to me or simple enough I will fulfill....when I feel like it.
I got priors people. And I already am doing a lot as it is. Don't pile on more stuff please. XD
So with that said; why do I even bother doing work on my own here? Well there's something telling me to keep going and letting me know that someday it might lead to my calling. As I continue to live in security and don't really have a lot to worry about; time is the one thing I wish I had more of. There's only so much you can do to juggle between your work, your job and not becoming an isolated shut in.
So while I continue drawing on a weekly basis, it's just part of what's working up to what I may be able to do one day. After all; I was educated to draw everyday. And it seems to be working out as I continue to make bigger strides; and hopefully even more so.
Anyways, my pic of last week I did is this one:
It reflects how all I would really like is one more Sly game with a solid conclusion. And this scene alone is what many MANY fans want to see.
Sadly though when Sanzaru announced they would not be making more Sly games; people flipped. And then they started attacking Sanzaru blaming them for Sly 4's short comings. (Which IMO were few in between.) Seriously guys; one character turns bad and you throw a fit? I didn't much care for it either; but it didn't ruin the overall experience for me. Sly 4 is still my second favorite in the series. And yet there's Sly "fans" out there who totally hate it and blame Sanzaru; who are big Sly fans themselves.
Just goes to show you, be it TUFF Puppy or Sly Cooper, there's immaturity in the fandoms wherever I go. Yet I love the characters enough to keep going.
Luckily I got people in real life I can talk to about this. It's best to unload frustrations with people close to you off-screen sometimes.
