I've been doing a lot of looking back at my older works. Not the Negative Zone atrocities, but the things like my Zack and Cloud picture, and my Magma Colosseum picture, and the Lagiacrus and Ludroth picture. I was really good a couple years ago. What happened? Well, school happened, and depression hit me in the face with an aluminum baseball bat. It's been a pain relearning how to draw and color again. It's disheartening to know that I HAVE the amazing ability somewhere deep down, but I'm not reaching it anymore. I'm not inspired enough to draw the things I used to draw.

But then I look at the really bad ones, like the Negative Zone atrocities, and wonder if redoing them would make them any better, would it make me like them more, would I gain confidence and practice if I tried them again.

So I'm asking you, my beloved watchers and friends: is there a specific piece you want to see redone? A comic, or a picture I did when I was younger? Is there a certain colosseum you want to see Marth and his Pokemon in? Do you just want to see more fanart in general, especially with the new Smash coming out?

This is to hopefully inspire me and get me drawing again (when I have the time) and have more practice for the commissions that expect such high quality work. I feel I haven't been putting the very best effort into them, even though I tried my hardest, because I'm so rusty on detail-work and shading. I want to get better. I want to draw things like I used to draw--the stuff with the intense detail I STILL can't believe I did.

Anyway, commissions are still open! Sorry for begging the past couple of days; I've just been really panicked about being able to eat at all.
EDIT: I forgot I had to return some fabric so I am officially out of the hole now that the return has been processed! I would still appreciate commissions but now I'm not as panicked as I was about not having money to eat.

Okay so I guess my last journal didn't come across very clearly or something. I am very much in the hole and needing commissions to eat lunch next week. I hope I didn't offend my furry watchers with the comment from the last journal; I was just simply pointing out that, as a non-furry, I have trouble drawing them and prefer not to draw them when at all possible. But even as a non-furry, I must be doing something right since that's what everyone wants from me. I wasn't saying furries are bad. I just prefer not to draw them because they're hard and I only like challenges in very small doses.

ANYWAY four slots available. Please help a starving Kirby who's trying to survive college!

1. Shawn on Facebook - 1 commission paid, in progress

2. Kauthar-Sharbini - 1 commission paid, subject pending

Okay so I'm in the hole thanks to an extremely pricey homework investment that took all of my paycheck. I have $30 on my credit card for lunch this and next week, which will not last. Now, I'm moving $35 over to my account from my Paypal, so it should get me pretty close to being out of the hole, but I'd like two or three commissions to afford food.

Commissions will get done slightly quicker (not counting on the mountains of homework I am likely to receive) if it's something I have interest in, such as Pokemon or Prince of Tennis, but that's not to say you can't have your lesbian elephants making out if that's what you want. Now granted I'm not the best person to ask about drawing elephants making out, but I kind of need food so whatever I have to draw. I'm such an art whore. Just for the record, I really hate drawing furries because that's not my forte. And yet, that's all people seem to ask me for. I must be doing something right?

ANYWAY, I'll open four more slots.

Having doubts about my future goals again. I desperately need to go to more anime cons to start my cosplay photography career, but with the money I'm making and paying for two credit cards and student loans, there's no bloody way I'll be able to go anytime soon. I don't know how I'm going to raise enough money to go to multiple cons a year. It doesn't help that I'm still not driving, so I'm even further limited. I'm even considering giving up the rights to one of my photos, in hopes that Coke-a-Cola will pay me a decent amount of money for it. How do people live off minimum wage? I couldn't even afford to pay the bills when I was living with my brother in an apartment! I might be able to land a job as a photographer's assistant, but until then, I don't know what I'm going to do and it scares me. I really don't know what else I'd want to do with my life.

I don't know, I need encouragement. *huddles up in a corner*
