Fuck my life. Just as things were starting to look better and I thought I could finally set up the tablet and afterwards get to practice/start with the commissions, reality has found a way to screw me over yet again. My laptop is dying, and even though it runs more smoothly now after taking it apart completely and having a look at it, I'm not giving it much time anymore. I don't even know if I can use Photoshop and stuff properly on it, or a variety of other programs combined, without it overheating/crashing. It has gotten slower, and the operating system isn't in best shape anymore either, it seems. This thing is five years old and in permanent use, sure, but still -.-'
So, I do expect delays and fuckups in moments where I need them the least, so I can't promise to get to those commissions or post new pictures soon. I will keep trying, although carefully, since I can't afford a new laptop right now, and my husband's PC also needs new components desperately.
Man, I'm so pissed.
UPDATE: Of course, things are taking longer (as always, unfortunately) and I haven't gotten to setting up and testing my new tablet, not to mention the programs I wanna try out. But despite a busy weekend incoming, I will at least try my best to fit this into my schedule, so I can work on the commissions soon. It might be though that I'm faster with the traditional commissions, since I don't have to set up anything for that
I'll keep you posted about any news.
EDIT: Good news! The new tablet has arrived! Hopefully, today or tomorrow, I can plug it into my PC and start practicing a bit on the side...and after that, it's only a matter of time until I will contact my commission candidates one by one to talk to them about the details and formalities (and if I feel like I can do the job or not). I will regularly keep you posted in this journal about the commission progress, once we have confirmed the transactions and stuff. Said progress will be shown in percent after the according icon/name, as always. So, things are moving forward after all XD
Ah, here we are again, after I already had given up hope that anyone will commission me after the initial small wave at all. Anyway, whoever considers to commission me now, will be put on the waiting list, so I can notify you once I have my new tablet and practiced a little with it. Due to my schedule, this might take a while - please understand.
Here are the current candidates:
And in case anyone else is interested, you will find my commission sheet here:
The terms of service are in the description, if you click on the sheet.
That's all for now. Seminon out^^
