Marina's deviantART Journal

:megaphone: NOTICE: Please EMAIL ME at zroing[at]gmail[dot]com if you have a question about your commission and need an immediate reply. I only check notes and comments on art sites (such as deviantART and FA) on Sundays and Mondays. Thanks! :thanks:

Yes, that title is kinda for real... Sorry guys... Please read on. ^^;

There’s more details to it that actually makes the facts of this journal title a little less absolute. But I wanted something that would really GRAB your attention because basically, that is what is happening, and I didn't want my watchers taken by surprise.

Firstly, please realize that this is a very happy event for me! I’ve asked my boss for a raise today and he gave it to me. I’ve been working very hard on his stuff and doing commissions on top of it pretty much left no time for my personal art and projects. My life is comfortable, but as far as feeling fulfilled, I’ve been pretty unhappy. You’ve seen my outbursts recently because of it. I've been heavily interacting with a side of the furry fandom that I grew fond of but feel I don't fit in at all. And because all I do is babyfur commissions I never engage with the rest of it. I needed to change this. And I just REALLY miss drawing my own characters and stories more than anything else.

So this is the new situation:

:bulletred: All current commissions in the queue will be completed in the usual timely manner… of course!
:bulletblue: I intend to take commissions throughout this year still, and on special occasions when extra funds are needed (Christmas, Mother’s Day, to get a special treat for my pets, or fun a little home project… or just having an emergency where my own savings aren’t enough.) Chances to commission me WILL come up BUT THEY WILL BE RARE.
:bulletgreen: I will still be super active in the community! Likely even more so. You’ll just see me post TONS of my personal art now. ^__^
:bulletpink: Once I’ve rested a bit, and have had a good long break drawing my own characters, gifts and raffles can start again. Having to take commissions made it so I had to stop this for the most part, which made me quite sad.

At least for a while, being able to rest from three years of commissions will be a priority. Please don’t guilt me into taking your commission… I hate saying no, but I really need a break right now. T////T

In the coming months (after the holidays) in a way, you’ll finally be getting to know me. My own art, my characters. Fan art of things I like. Maybe do some telegram stickers for myself. More ref sheets for my characters. More trades, more collabs. I’ll be commissioning other artists!

I’ve waited a long time to be able to make this change in my life. I hope you can be happy for me. And once again remember that I am still taking commissions for the end of this year. I am looking forward to sharing my own work with you all, and still doing the occasional commission, gift art or raffle in 2016.

TO REITERATE: Still taking commissions for the rest of 2015. No more in 2016 (well, rarely.)

Thank you everyone for your support the last few years! You are all awesome!! ;u;

No thanks, and this is kind of spammy.

Spammy? Is that bad?
