Hello loves! I've got a lot going on right now, so I'm gonna fill you guys in
(those that are interested)
As you know, I am currently working on commissions. As of next week, I'll be a contracted 3D artist for a business that does custom 3D printing. In addition, I'll also be doing other freelance work including: models for a game thats on steam, as well as concept design for a game Kickstarter.
It's terrifying, but also exciting.
Ive only been out of school for about a month, but Ive been battling a whole lot of anxiety about this new life I'm stepping into. I was hoping to get into a studio right off the bat, but I didnt, so panic set in, really hard. My #1 response from studio applications have been "you have great work, but we need someone with more experience." V_V Oh,.... the infamous problem. (ITS REAL)
But, I've been blessed to have chatted with some experienced artists in my goal field, and they have all been very encouraging with some great advice,... its a universal problem, an initiation phase most people go through, and that's comforting.
Full-time Freelance was not my ideal, but it's got to be what I need for now. Im excited to expand my portfolio and resume so I can get in with a big studio like I really want!
That being said, I still have a running list of commission work. I think with the next few months I'll be easing out of taking commissions so I can really focus on building dynamite work that can help me reach my goals of getting into the industry.
I'm also going to work on prints for Momocon! Im currently in the top area of the waitlist, so I'm going to prepare in good chance that I get in.
WOW this is stressful!
SO much to do... but, here it is c:
I dont know what the future holds for me, I DO know that I want to make a career for myself, doing what I love.
