Journal
10 Commission Tips!+Are You a College Student??
I thought I'd post a journal offering some helpful tips and resources to people! FIRST OFF: Are you a college student??? Do you REALLY HATE paying stupidly high prices for books, especially used ones? WELL THEN USE THIS SITE INSTEAD to buy or rent your books, I used it through 4 years of college and it saved me hundreds of dollars. And they're just straight up a nice company--every time they mailed me my books, they included stuff like laundry soaps and energy drinks, free of charge. xD

--------------------------------------
Onto the second thing...Do you want to open your own commissions? Don't know where to start? Or maybe you're new to it and haven't quite gotten the hang of it? Well here's some tips for you born of my 8+ years of doing commissions on this site, and several people have come to me asking for some help.
1) DON'T TAKE COMMISSIONS IF YOU DON'T HAVE THE TIME OR MOTIVATION. I cannot stress this enough. If you WANT to do commissions but aren't

Hayley Williams of Paramore

This is a painting I finished earlier this week of Hayley Williams of Paramore. She is one of my all time favorite singers. I borrowed the image from Jack Edinger for reference but changed up many of the details. It’s doubtful I’ll sell this one because of the fact that the original image belongs to Jack (who is amazing at what he does).


Specs:

  • Canson Montval Watercolor paper, 9x12
  • Pigma Micron Pens in .01
  • Royal and Langnickel Watercolor
  • Prang Watercolor
  • Niji Pearlescent Watercolors
  • Royal and Langnickel Gouache
  • Staedtler Watercolor Pencils
  • Roughly 50 hours at completion

Hey guys, 
I'm not sure who is still here, but, I'm starting over. I'm going to pull down a lot of my work and start from scratch. I think it's time to get this platform in line with my other social media. I'm not sure how well this is going to go, but I need to do something to get myself back to where I was and hopefully further myself and my work. I'll probably be posting more often too, hopefully anyway. I do have a lot to post as far as doodles and what not. If any of you are still here and watching me thanks for sticking around, I appreciate it. 

I know that I posted that I was going to pursue psych as a main career but I also want to do art and don't see why the two can't exist together for the same goal. So this time around I hope that I can put up better art.

I'll keep everyone posted on what all happens, thanks again for sticking by me.

I’m a psych student that has had a forever love in art. I make art as often as I can and would love it implement it into my studies. I work mostly in traditional media. I’m very much into illustration and life drawing. Most of my work can be found on tumblr, Facebook, society 6, etc.
