I pondered a while back what is it in drawn toony characters that resonates so strongly with me, and people in general.
I thought that maybe it's that, by and large, they look happy. Perhaps we like to reflect on these traits in fictional characters to tap into that care-freeness, even if it might be elusive to us in IRL?
I can also characters, and by carefully shaping its expression, I can make other people feel for the character as well. It's a play on our insticts.
I found about Dropbox Paper by accident and thought it was perfect for keeping public docs about commission related stuffs.
Lo and behold, none of the images are visible through the public link.
I kinda don't want to use Google Docs for this to allow some level of privacy for possible clients but I'm running out of options here.
One unfortunate fact about commissioning me is that, well, quality varies. Some days drawing just is a struggle. Sometimes the references are hard to follow and I become blind to other stuff like composition. Working outside my comfort zone strains other aspects of the drawing. But I still need the compensation for my time. I hope people understand.
I want an addon to my browser that loads pages under a black curtain that fades out when it's done loading.
Browsing in the dark, using dark themes, opening new site -> screen fills with #FFFFFF ready to assault your senses.
I wonder, if push comes to shove, how much bank I could realistically make with the fandom. I've been financially doing alright, but some nights I wonder if things go wrong, could I find support here until things might even out.
Maybe people might find value in supporting me making comics or more animations. Dunno how that'd work out tho, w/o big angry Pyapal roasting my hide, not to mention taxes.
So I think Oculus Quest is a wonderful device, especially if they deliver on their promise of hand tracking.
Shitty thing about it is that it's a pretty closed ecosystem. I can make development builds on it, but I cannot share stuff outside their marketplace.
They said that the thing will at some point allow connecting to an external computer, so maybe then? Maybe not.
