Between a hectic Christmas season, an injured and very cranky mother, and simply kept busy doing Illustration and Art commissions on my primary art account, I've simply been horrid at logging in.
Alas, it also seems a dear friend of mine passed away a few days ago on the 27th of January, so I've spent the past week in a dumbfounded state, and am still recovering from the loss.
But truly I have simply lacked the motivation to work on 3D models because of the prolonged hours of work they typically require.
And thus I have not accepted any model commissions, nor have I worked on any personal models.
3D Modelling commissions are sporadic in that I do them when I'm hit with the motivation to do them.
But why is this? That's unfair isn't it?:
It is because it takes well over 15-20 hours to create a 3D model (not including revision after revision after revision I am often requested to make) they are not something I take lightly or simply accept 'on a whim'. I want to know I will be fully capable of finishing a 3D model commission within a decent time-frame. But since my life has been so uncertain and up in the air, I've not felt like I am on steady enough ground to make models when other people's money is involved. Feeling as though I cannot deliver a commission in a timely manner stresses me out to no end, it simply drives me crazy!
They are not something I can complete as quickly as drawing, which is why illustration commissions on my other art account have been my main focus lately, and thus I have not accepted any although quite a number of people have expressed great interest in my work.
Thank you so much for thinking my models are worth your time, I really do enjoy making them, but only when I am comfortable in knowing tha I truly have the time and motivation to do them decently and not do a poor job it it merely to get it done.
I apologize that I have been rather inactive. Truly I'm not terribly into the MMD community, I merely enjoy creating models to practice the skill and doing something for others in the process. Its a hobby for me really.
So anyone who watches me should have noticed that my activity sort of comes in waves. BUT, I do check messages every now and again so if you need me you can always send a note! :3
as it stands now, I currently am not accepting commissions
but WHEN I AM. I. ALWAYS. POST A JOURNAL!
That's somewhat of a long-winded rant, but it's best you know my honest opinion on how I think when I accept or turn down commissions so that you can decide if I am worth your time or not.
Otherwise, currently I have no models that I am working on and thus it will still remain rather quiet over here.
////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// I've had a TON of people asking about my splatoon inkling models
And quite frankly, I'm not sure how to feel.
Some people have approached me quite politely, which is nice!
But others simply seem to DEMAND
that I distribute them, which I find is putting a very bad taste in my mouth.
It seems many people seem to have a sense of entitlement when it comes to the content we (Any 3D modeling artists or people that create things for use in MMD) make simply MUST be available to ALL.
These somewhat rude and entitled sounding people pressuring me to release them quite frankly make me feel inclined to do just the opposite.
They are incomplete models, with a handful of things I would like to fix before I even considered giving them to my personal friends, let alone people on the internet.
Fixing the issues will be done when I have the time and motivation to do so. Pestering and nagging will not hasten the process, although I do appreciate your interest in them.
If I decide to distribute them for download, I will upload an image of them with a download link that you WILL SEE IN MY DOWNLOADS FOLDER.
If they are not there? Then obviously they cannot be downloaded, you silly people!
I'll still answer questions about them. But if youre asking for a download link, I'm afraid I don't have one for you yet.
