This year, I’m making it my business to step up the portfolio game and try to get more commissions/freelance work. I still love drawing more than making jewelry, hence, wanting to get more drawing jobs.
Last year, I kinda beat myself up over doing “pretty, detailed, predictable stuff”, I second guessed myself a lot and held myself back for no reason at all. I like doing pretty, detailed, predictable stuff and even if it’s predictable, I should still do it. I’m pretty sure the only person who’s judging me is me anyway.
I’m in the process of inking this and it’ll be colored with watercolor. I want to do more digital work, as my traditional stuff doesn’t scan very well but I can’t help it. I still love traditional media even though it looks awful on a computer screen ;__;
