So to all those that requested something from me, please don't worry about me having forgotten because I haven't, I've just slightly lost my motivation to draw anything, however, I will never the less have them finished and posted if that's what you want. I've only got 3 left to draw and then I can start colouring in.
The point that I really wanted to make though through this journal is that I'm going to be revoking requests. So in the halfterms coming up I will no longer be taking any requests. I have several reasons why I'll be doing so:
1st because half the people that ask me for requests I hardly know and they don't benefit my page in the slightest. Sure I can enjoy drawing what these people ask (sometimes) but it can get a bit annoying when they aren't even friends or watching me
2nd I hardly have any time to actually draw things that I want to draw. For example, I had so many great ideas that I've been meaning to work on but have been side tracked because of people that wanted a request because it's FREE
3rd it uses quite a few of my resources like paper and the promarkers that I use to colour, and it's costing me a lot of black pens as well to outline the pencil.
So I've proposed a solution. If you want to "request" me you are now going to have to commission me. It doesn't have to be real money (despite my mum wanting that to happen) it can just be points on DA or doing art trades with me. I will only take requests from people that I consider my friends on DA.
I know it seems harsh but doing these requests puts me under a lot of stress and now that I've got an Xbox 1 in the house I'm probably gonna spend less time on DA than usual.
To conclude, people that have requested me recently, you have nothing to worry from this journal, but future people do.
