artastrophe's Profile Picture
artastrophe

Artist | Professional | Digital Art
United States
freelance illustrator... I mostly do sketches/concept drawings/storyboards for retail... if I'm not working, I'm writing, and if I'm not writing, I'm painting. Or, occasionally, sleeping. A love for fantasy and RPGs has led me to almost exclusively painting character art/portraits for fun *cough* "practice." :roll:

COMMISSIONS
I really appreciate all the support, but I don't know when I will open for commissions again, and I just don't have the time to do requests, either... sorry, but thank you for your understanding! ^^
If I don't send you a reply, it's because I've run out of ways to say this politely and/or I'm just a horrible jerk for which any social interaction costs a great deal of thought/effort~!!

Hey you! Where have you been; there is a horrible chasm in the world where your fanfictions and art used to be highlights!

You are missed! Horribly, horribly missed!

Also, the delightful Shasera made these delightful cards for me and for Aegis of Candlekeep and I wanted to share one with you because a certain Red Wizard inevitably reminds me of you. Happy Valentines Day!

Awwwwwwww aw that is so awfully sweet of you; you really have no idea how much that means to me. Which I am sure sounds really cheesy, but seriously. :blushes: :heart: I've actually been struggling with depression a lot most of this last year... which isn't exactly conducive to being productive haha... (though I have been working a good deal on my fic at least, even if I haven't shown any of it to anyone yet! it's kind of intimidating now xD). anyway aww I really appreciate that a lot more than I can articulate; it is really lovely to hear, so thank you. :hug:

(And oooh those cards are so awesome + clever + well-done! what a great collaboration. :D)

You're not alone! Depression/anxiety are my personal monsters, too!

I'm glad hearing from me lifted your spirits :) You shouldn't be intimidated by your fic! You also need to not worry about it being 'perfect' or about whether your update schedule is 'reliable.' Let your fans love you regardless; we want to, we aim to, and you deserve it ;)

Can't wait to see what you come up with next!

(Teehee, I'm glad you liked the cards, I was amazed but how fast Shasera put them together and how delightful they were XD. Most people are still horrified when they find out I've put Edwin and Imoen 'together' but to me it made perfect sense to team up bigoted-arrogant-mutterer with happy-go-lucky-monkey-girl and then pull out the popcorn... XD)

Also you not updating is making me more depressed. So Ha! Now you have to do it! MUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHH!

Your version of Edwin helped me figure out how to do my own ;)

Though obviously all authors' characterizations of him are quite different, and the tales we're telling are different too; your writing really helped me get at least a foothold into how to do his character in a fairly grim/competant Lawful Evil (and not bumbling/comic) way and how to create plausible character growth from that standpoint without ruining the character. Mine is a lot more blustery and self-sabotaging of course, but I'd like to think the utterly unromantic Sajantha/Edwin thing was an important reference XD

Since I think all fanfiction writers draw off one another for experience and ideas, I just wanted to let you know that someone took a lot from your fiction and really enjoyed it XD And wants to see more!
