artastrophe's Profile Picture

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:

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~!!
Yeahhhh way overdue for an update on here! :blushes: Like I don't stress enough over wording and stuff anyway, whew. First of all, I would like to thank all my new watchers whose optimism was fortunately not unwarranted in that I actually will be posting some art on here, after all! ;D I know it's been awhile.

And in regards to that, I've been kind of getting an ass-kicking from a variety of issues this last year which I could (debatably) handle with something like aplomb were they not all lumped together at once. DeviantArt sort of became this extra obligation to me in that I am just incredibly overwhelmed with all these immediate real-life demands, so anything additional from here just isn't something I'm equipped to handle right now... this is my excuse for being so horrible with replies, since my default setting isn't exactly impressive with them, in the first place. ^^; It is embarrassing how much stress/anxiety this causes me. >_>

So, agh, sorry, not trying to info-dump or garner sympathy or anything; I just felt like I owed an explanation for my absence and silence these last months... my carpal tunnel-y issues are improving, at least, so I can at least do better about the first and will probably be updating more consistently from here, and I will certainly try to work on the latter, though I am not sure what my efforts will end up looking like on that front. At any rate, to everyone I've left hanging with notes and things, you have my apologies (if not my actual reply hahaha aldkfjad;lkfj) and perhaps it helps to know that is one more thing I'm wracked with guilt about?? >_<;

DeviantArt has been such a great community to be a part of, and I think I have met all of my closest friends on here actually hehe (:hug:!!) and I just want to let all you cool people know that I really appreciate you and your support, even if I'm bad about acknowledging it... it's all really pretty amazing, and I don't stop to think about that enough... almost have 1,000 watchers!! I mean, wow. :faint: :heart: So, eep, mushy stuff--but really--thank you all. :thanks:

Hello again. Huge fan here. Where can I find your 210x330 sized portraits of Abazigal, Ellesime, Gorion, Gromnir, Illisara, Mellisan, Solar, Sendai please? In the zip file, the portraits are only 38x60 pixels.

Hey, I was wondering, do you have a Tumblr?
You should totally make a Sajantha ask blog *v*
artastrophe Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
d'aw that is so cute that you think so, thanks! :meow: I have a tumblr but I honestly don't know how to use it (ad;lkfjaldkfj I can't handle any more social media-ing QQ) but that does seem like it would be a fun idea...
although I've always thought it would be quite a hoot to make an *Edwin* snark account on Twitter (or tumblr) or something, hahaa. ;)

Oh god yes, make an Edwin rp/ ask account that would be AMAZING.
But yeah, you don't need to get social at all on tumblr if you don't want.
Many artists just post their art and that is ;)

Edwin RP would be hella fun, for sure. I have a feeling I would be super into it for like a week or two then just get busy or distracted and it would be one more obligation to make me feel like crap and guilt over not updating siiiigh which is why I haven't ever done it... >_> maybe if I could get a group of people working on it or something so it wasn't all up to me?? ^^;

and I think it's so cool that you can do those awesome sketches to illustrate stuff with your tumblr/ask accounts--I think that's the whole point, right?--and I just effing hate sketching (probably because I have to do it for work all the time?? D: )... I always wished I could just loosen up and do fun quick little things but then I want to add color and make it all perfect (my line art is quite messy xD) and suddenly it's taking me hours, bah. ;P

 But, yes, if I could get over those two obstacles that would be so damn perfect; it really is a good idea--I wish I was up for it, and I do appreciate the suggestion!! :hug:
