Academic year is passing by on full blazing speed again and truth be told, I've only barely managed. My first week of university was marked by long days and boring introduction speeches, with six (!) hours of lectures on the worst day. Yeah, it wasn't great. Though we had loads of awesome and very science-y practica too, which mad eup for the long periods of sitting and listening.
Stuff has settled now, sort of. I'm back to a normal, not too hectic ritme. I think in a short while I'll be able to get back to making decent amounts of art again and also too finally getting through all the messages that have been piling up last week while I was desperately trying to keep my mind by my lectures. O well, at least I got loads of doodle practice.
I've also finally managed to get my drivers licence! Oh and was I overjoyed! I got it at the sixth try, so it's not exactly an achievement to be proud of, but still I couldn't be happier ^^ Last weekend I drove the car on my own for the first time. I went to my grandparents, and to the forest with my dog. It was awesome, but also very weird, to sit in a car alone (or with a dog). I felt rather adulty ^^
Either way, that's not what this journal is about. I wanted to ask you all some questions, since I can't do polls and such. Not intensely interesting ones, mind you, but I'd really appreciate it if you took a minute to answer them. That is, if my brabbeling about life hasn't made you run of yet... We'll see. The important stuff
First things first. I was thinking about opening for commissions. Not just drawings, but rather animated icons, like the one I made for Ealaain ->
, Arinantwolf ->
or my own
. I don't seen icons like these around very regularily so I figured there might be plenty of people out there who would like them. I'm not sure at what level of complexity I'll offer or for what price (probably expensive though, for animating is very time consuming and I still want to be able to make art of my own) but I'd just like to know, if I were to offer animated icon commissions, would you be interested?
Another little question I'd like to ask is about my gallery, or more specifically, gallery folders. I wondered if you guys find them confusing. I was thinking about changing them, but wasn't entirely sure what to put where and such, so; Do you find my gallery folders confusing? And if you do, what do you think I could do to make my gallery more orderly?
Yeah all right, that question was pretty short and rubbish, it would have made a good poll, but it looks awkward in a journal. O well.
Last but not least: Is there anything You'd like to ask Me?
An eye for an eye, I guess. I've asked questions, so I'll give you all some answers too. Whether it's about me or about art or some weird sciency thing you've always wanted to know, please speak up and don't be shy ^^
Lastly I want to give a little thanks to :iconwh1pp1ng-b0y: who made a lovely piece of art for me in another exchange at
Thank you so much for this wonderful gift my friend ^^
Well that was it for now, folks. Have a nice weekend!
