Offering free pictures and getting only one taker (thanks, [ profile] chickvw! Expect something shiny soon. ) is kind of a hit to the ego. -.- I always end up with this feeling that I suck so bad I can't even give doodles away.

(This is slightly exacerbated by the fact that someone has apparently decided that a "name-your-price icon" wasn't worth paying *anything* for. Possibly they just forgot to send a trade. Possibly they're not paying because I took too long to make it. Possibly they're a giant douche. It's definitely not about a lack of funds because the medium of exchange was virtual-freaking-pets on a site that hands them out like candy.)

Anyway. I suppose the lack of freebie-volunteers may actually be because I posted on a site where nobody was reading the offer...

If anyone's on FA and wants to throw a character or two into the pool for potential random doodles/experiments, go here.

You don't suck! Your art is lovely.

The last time I offered free pictures, someone known on the board for being an artist replied asking for one and one charming person replied to the thread saying they wished that person was offering free pictures instead. Sometimes people have no manners :P

Aw, thank you. :) Reminds me that I still have an octopus sketch around here that I should finish up for you.

And as for the person who said they'd rather have free pictures from someone else- Yikes, what a jerk! (Oh, do you have a DeviantArt or other gallery? I've always adored your art style but I don't think I've seen anything from you in ages!)

Thank you.. it's beyond shiny! I don't know why people don't hop on your art.. it might sound bad for all the commissions I've gotten but the badge you made me is definitely the First to get clipped on when I go to meets!

I feel a bit better since I went to Teenycom and got some bites there; I suppose part of it was just that I don't have a whole lot of FA watchers. :)

Glad you're getting some use out of the badge!
