A huge thank you for all who participated in my 'recent' request box! It was my first(& maybe the last...?) time doing this!
The intention was to have a feel of how is it like to do requests, seeing as so many artists did it and I must say... It was and had been a fun ride, working & trying out different art themes given, esp dress drawing which I'm still trying to get a hand of it
At the same time, it's a little draining?- mostly cos of my colouring materials which r not cheap plus my own personality...
I have a personality that dislikes being tied down; likes to be free to do what I like! As such, I hate having a fixed theme which already opposes the idea of requests... Yet I also dislike rejecting just cos of reasons like "I dislike it" or "I don't feel like it"; such reasons r just excuses and not real reasons... And so, this brings a conflict when accepting the requests- I know I can do it
but it's not what I want to do
It ends up with me, pushing myself to work on the requests cos I made a promise; it would be bad to not fulfil it but in the process of working, I wasn't inspired & couldn't give my best even if I wan to... That feeling is kinda miserable; doing for the sake of doing it and not really enjoying it...
Of course, I wouldn't say I didn't have fun cos I gained a lot from those new exposures and so, I like to thank the requesters for giving such opportunities!
However, weighing on my own personal feel & gain, I would say doing requests aren't cut out for me... Those artists who could and even do commissions, I salute you
After all that said, it's not confirmed this will be my last request box; just maybe I will set the rules stricter that works for both me and my requesters in future request boxes~
All request works of this round can be found on this master post
or in my gallery under the folder REQUESTS
Oh yeah before I forgot, this is to requesters: if you want the the numbering and [request by...] written on top of the request work to be removed, pls let me know; I can do that for you!(Just mentioning; not sure if ppl mind or nt...)
***Sorry for the rant and if this post offends/hurts anyone in any way that u r gonna rant on me cos of how I am, I can only say I was just voicing out my true feelings... And if you don't, thank you for your understanding and support!
