Just wanted to know, how did u get started doing commissioned art? I would like to try but I'm very nervous that I won't get any responses
hi! sorry for not getting back to you earlier!
when i started, i didn’t think about the responses, my only fear was the whole process of paypal and stuff. when you begin, though, don’t start when you’re in dire need of money (i.e. bills, gas, medical issues, etc.). you’re only gonna get discouraged and disappointed, especially if you don’t have a massive following as of yet. i opened commissions to conquer my fear of socializing, and mostly because i wanted to improve and get better by drawing other characters in different situations.
what i did, i just opened the commissions and left it open. didn’t pay attention if i didn’t get any hits or not. sometimes, on fanart, i would put in links to my commission info/other platforms and watched my art spread. i continued doing my thing, like making fanart (which helps!), personal art, etc., and when i got my first ding, i was very happy! eventually, some followed, and i got enough! if you like, you can offer promos (i.e. buy 2 bust shots, get one free), offer discounts, but take care not to underprice yourself just to attract people. your art is always worth your effort.
if you feel you’re ready, go ahead and open them! don’t let the lack of responses discourage you from drawing. just keep creating, and eventually you’ll get lucky and hit your first milestone! it takes time, but patience and perseverance are the best things you’ll need. good luck friend! 8)
Because she has a white saviour complex that the show masquerades as ferocity and she’s a colonizer but the show just calls it being a conquerer. I have serious issues that the brown people she “frees” calls her mother and that season 3 ended with her essentially crowd-surfing on them.
It bothers me that she continues to call herself Khaleesi when she doesn’t abide by any of their rules. In season 1 it was fine because she immersed herself in the culture, considered them her people, learned what the customs were and took them on as her own but now she’s just collecting titles and doesn’t really do anything to earn them, she simply has dragons.
Then there’s the fact that I don’t find her particularly fierce or intelligent or cunning or strong or a good ruler. I just think she has dragons and she can’t be set on fire. And she isn’t a particularly good mother to her dragons anyway, Tyrion deserves those dragons way more than she does. I just don’t get the hype around her, she’s bland and she’s entitled and she’s self-righteous when she has no reason to be and the show’s love affair with her is irksome. Give someone else the damn dragons.
my favorite thing about harry potter is how attractive the whole potter family is like its understood that harry is one of the hotter boys at school and ginny is fine as hell and teddy who’s an honorary potter can make himself prettier than all of them combined and we all know james and lily were the it couple and i bet james 2, albus, and lily 2 were drop dead gorgeous athletes who were super smart and famous just like their parents like wow they probably have their own fan club and its me i am trash i am their fan club i love the potters
Eat a good breakfast. Drink lots of water. Take a few deep breaths. Bring in whatever supplies is required of you. And freaking conquer those tests. Remember, the ONLY way for you to actually fail this test, is to leave it blank. Even if you don’t know the answer, if you write something down, you will get points. You guys are freaking smart. Really freaking smart. YOU. CAN. DO. THIS. Now get off of tumblr and hit the sack!
