First and foremost, I would like to say sorry. Both for what I said in my previous journal and what I'm about to do now.
When I typed the journal that had previously been on my page, the one about me leaving, I was under a lot of stress - even when I posted the calmer, edited version. Having had my art stolen numerous times and still receiving little to no recognition as the artist had been getting on my nerves, however now I realize that my intention to leave the site without much of a word was childish.
I've gone back and rethought my initial idea and I am not going to be leaving this site - I will be continuing to upload art here and taking commissions. I enjoy drawing, and even though I have a lot to improve on, I really hope that drawing more and getting people to offer critiques, that I will get out of just drawing cats and be able to have a more diverse pallet of things to draw.
So, in saying all this, I'm going to be reopening the commissions widget on my page in hopes of actually making money. This is the important part of the journal. In the fall, I leave for university. And my family, while in no means is poor, is not well off either. I don't have a lot of money, despite having a job. I get little to no hours and do not enjoy what I do in the least. So please consider commissioning me, I know this is very child-like and begging, but I would like to be able to pay my way into school without leaning too heavily on my parents in this case, and without getting under too much debt.
I understand that not many people can commission because of not having enough money. But if you could signal boost this journal, I would really appreciate it. The commissions widget takes points and allows me to convert them to money, and it would mean so much to me if people could commission me so I could go to school without having too much of a loan.
I'll try to get my page all sorted out by tomorrow evening at the latest. Thanks for reading if you got this far, and even if you cannot do anything to help, just thanks for looking at my art and supporting me by doing so. I love all my watchers so much.
Thank you all.
