Donate

pawcanada has started a donation pool!
39 / 2,396
I'm keen to extend the membership Toonartist gave me at Christmas, so I've decided to modify this donation pool to see if I can get the points necessary to do so.

If I can improve my art production process I may look at doing simple, basic, cheap points commissions but I will cross that bridge when I feel ready.

You must be logged in to donate.

And so, my duties are done

Journal Entry: Mon Mar 2, 2015, 8:58 AM
On Saturday I got to be best man to one of my best friends. As I mentioned in my speech I as very honoured to play this role, especially as our friendship has, in many ways, been a corner stone and a support I've needed during some of my more difficult and darker times. I had the honour of giving him and his bride the ring, being the first of the two best men (the other being his brother) to give my speech and generally doing everything I could to help rally people into the various rooms, to sign guest books and busting out my terrible, terrible moves on the dance floor.

As I said in a number of my previous journals, I was a little anxious about the entire ordeal, from the fact I was struggling to get a decent stag do/batchelor party off the ground to the fear of giving a speech in front of a large number of people. Thankfully both went off without a hitch; the groom enjoyed the stag do (bar the "lets go out drinking until 2am, then get up at 7 to get shot in the woods for over half a day" aspect of the stag do) and my speech was well received and praised by the groom, mutual friends and people I'd never met before. Sure, it was difficult getting up at 7 and the hand holding the cards with my speech written on were shaking as I was reading it but I wouldn't trade the experience for anything.

Having said that, I do feel now a massive weight has been lifted off my shoulders and I can relax. No more chasing people to try and get them to commit or pay for something, no more worrying about my speech to make sure I cover everything I want to in a good amount of time and no more worrying I'll mess up anything. I feel I can now get back on with the things I want to do in my own life, including art. I'm about the reach the end of a seven day (not counting weekend) holiday, which I mostly used as a way to finish off any remaining vacation time before it gets reset in April and while I had hoped to get on top of art work, things ranging from fatigue from the events, to writing my speech, getting work done on my car, cleaning my apartment for an inspection later this week and traveling alas ate up more of my time than I hoped (especially the journey home yesterday; it took me about six hours to get home due to delays caused by general maintenance work on the rail tracks. Normally the journey is 3.5 hours...). As I said in my previous journal, my intentions are to work on the following:

:bulletorange:Waiting for the Sun, which I'm likely to re-draw from scratch for the third time and have her standing so it fits better with the rest of the body
:bulletorange: A new Snow picture, showing off an updated design that blends elements from PactMaker's take - Commission- pawcanada - with her previous design
:bulletorange: A more challanging piece with Snow leaning on rails as she watches the winter weather (likely the new "Winter" entry for the "Season Girls" concept I have in mind)
:bulletorange: Some kind of pinup/anatomy study, inspired by various pieces akeemsam has done for me
:bulletorange: Various gifts, trades and requests

Hopefully I'll have something for you guys to see soon.
