It's really relevant to me right now, because suddenly people have been asking me about my canvases and cut outs... like people I know. I think it's because I posted this picture on my facebook. (which I hardly ever do because I'm like invisible with my friends and family when it comes to my art.)
How it looks in my room BTW: [link]
And what the guy says in the video is true. People expect you to do free work because "Hell, it will only take you a few minutes."
Well no it doesn't. For one thing, I take my sweet ass time because I worry that if it looks bad, I'll see how limited my abilities really are. AND THEN MY FAMILY WILL CRITICIZE ME SAYING "SHE QUIT BEING A NURSE FOR THIS? PSSSHHHH" (I have some issues with family's judge-y eyes.) So yes, I think the emotional stress I would have to be put through is worth something right?
I worked on my drawing abilities for years now (that sounds so weird of me to say since I'm young and have only taken an Art 1 class in high school xD), and it should rewarded....
I swear I'll stop with the rant now.
Ok ok I've calmed down now. Not all of my family is like that. One is offering to pay me for a portrait. yay!
For my final thoughts, I want to thank all of you who support me, and commission me, comment me, and WELL HELL JUST FOR BEING HERE WITH ME.
I know I'm a sap, but I really do appreciate it you guys.
