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~!!
Sooo I have (obviously?) been busy hermit-ing quite a bit, lately (it takes an awful lot of work, you see), and I just wanted to say that AWW YOU GUYS I am overwhelmed with these strange feelings, getting all these happy birthday wishes--it touched my cold, withered heart, and reminded me that I am a member of the human race, and not merely some detached appendage to it. :XD: <3 So, uh, thank you. :hug:

and, also (because omg I have been intimidated by all the new watchers I am amassing*): I want to say that I am hugely flattered. I feel like I probably come across as a huge snob or something, sometimes (WHY, NO, I DON'T OVERTHINK EVERYTHING CONSTANTLY ONLY MOSTLY), but the truth is, I just get really overwhelmed rather easily, and then run away and hide from everything/everyone. So I am entirely sporadic with how much energy I have for replying to comments or whatever, although I do read them and actually appreciate them, believe it or not!! ^^; :heart:

*you guys know that I just started this account as a way to funnel my fangirlishness into something *cough* productive, right?? I hope no one is expecting anything, like, mature or something from me. :blushes: I am perfectly content remaining anonymous on here and avoiding all the LIKE ME ON FACEBOOK AND FOLLOW ME ON TWITTER /TUMBLR / STALK ME EVERYWHERE because holy crap I hate all that stuff and please don't; we can all just quietly appreciate each other unless you want to have rambling conversations about fictional characters or psychology or something. :meow:

But uhhh I totally became obsessed with Pinterest; if you want to follow me on that (and monitor how much time I spend there when I should be doing other things), you are certainly welcome to. ^___^ And, if you're not on Pinterest, STAY THE HELL AWAY FROM IT UNLESS YOU HAVE NOTHING BETTER TO DO AND DON'T MIND BEING CONSTANTLY DISTRACTED BY IT

In conclusion: 1) I love you, 2) Thank you, 3) I'm an INTP anti-social moron.
Oh, yeah, and I will try to actually post some artwork soon; I haven't been doing so much of it lately, haa...
so many WIPs laying around, though
  • Mood: Thanks
  • Listening to: on an 80s nostalgia trip
  • Drinking: yes, how else would I have courage enough to talk?

Hello. Could I kindly request portrait for male PC Jester? Please :) Only ones I find worthy at the moment are versions of Cicero, and I'd prefer original work, not existing character.
