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?

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. ;)
TariToons Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
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:
