So I was talking to my friend
yesterday and we were talking about a lot of stuff and then we were talking about our art and she told me that she doesn't like it being her job and life now and just wants to leave it as her hobby. I in fact feel the same. Since I started doing commissions, it felt great at first, but the way I am keeping up with commissions right now, along with all the other stuff I have to deal with: Exams, personal art projects, conventions etc. Also I realized that I don't get many commissions to do or sometimes don't even have time to do them. Also I barely even get to do my own art and pretty much doing art for everyone else has taken away my inspiration and will to draw for myself. I want to go back to the old days where I drew mostly for myself and created wonderful things.
So on that breaking point, I am quitting doing commissions. I'll find a different way to get money and might try now saving up too, so that at least I'll have some spare money on my savings. The only exception for commissions will be at conventions only. Otherwise I will be no longer doing commissions from now on. I have to finish the remaining commissions that I have to do now, but after that no commissions, trades and requests. Gift art will be done only for my closest friends, family members and even that only when I am in the mood for doing it.
