I'd like to come back to DA as my portfolio and main artistic page. It would be nice to become core again so... let's try if I can reach this goal. A 3-month core subscription t begin with :aww:

These awesome people also have a donation poll. If you can, give them some love! ;)

Well, seems that I've dome something and I'm pretty sure it has to lead me somewhere. 

I practically had to leave my job as an English and French teacher at the school I was working. It's alright, everything is fine and the principal was kind and nothing bad happened. It was all because I was about to be called from a certain company to begin working as a graphic designer... but it's been some time and my heart is telling me that this is it. Thanks to my boss, I'm still doing some French classes on mondays, which is very nice, but the rest of the week I'm looking for a chance to get where I'm going.

So, that leads me to the reason why I write this journal:  now that I am "free", I'm thinking hard. My life has always been a bunch of doubts. Where to go? What to do? What branch of the artistic-job world shoud I choose...? But what I really wanted was always there: creating. 

I've seen lots of people from DA, most of them friends or people I admire, that have begun their campaign on Patreon and are now earning more than I earned when I was working. And they have reached a wonderful goal that I wish with all my heart. How did they get there? Some of them began posting comic pages for free just as I did... and others didn't, just threw the campaign and voilà! 100 patrons supporting the cause! Man, that's amazing! Specially because some supporters even pledge with hihg ammounts, such as 50$. I'm not compalining, on the contrary, I'm super happy for them! And I want to get there too and feel that I'm doing the right thing.

So, if there's anybody there who is making a living from Patreon, can you give me some advice about it? Any ideas or telling me story of how did you reached your dream? I need something inspiring right now. Just help me find the way!

And another question for supporters! Would you consider supporting me on Patreon if I began posting the Will this ever end...? comic series again? I would work on both comics, illustrations and even goodies. I know somebody who make mugs, badges and stuff. When do I start? I'm opened to anything you can tell me to light my darkness up. ;) Even if you're not a Patron, please, say something if you want. 

Thanks for being there! :D

Hey there! I have a question, when do you think you'll get back to doing Rayman and Raygirl again? (I won't rush you.) =/
Raygirl13 Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2015  Professional Digital Artist
Hi! Well, it depends on my inspiration and the amount of work I have in my hands ;) However, I have a small something I began working on with Raygirl and Rayman. I haven't finished it yet but I'll try to. :aww: It's just that I have too many things to do lately and even a simple sketch takes its time. 

I'll try to upload it soon. :D

Very happy late birthday! I've been busy these few days but now I made it, bhew! :squee: Sun Party Sunny-side up 
Raygirl13 Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2015  Professional Digital Artist
D'aaaaw! Thank you my dear! :D Don't worry about it. I'm happy you remembered :aww: :hug: Thank you very much! :D Hope to see you more around here too.

I was gonna draw you a pic of cutie Esther because you encouraged me to draw again and because of birthday, I was happy with this until Sai done screwed up and I accidentally merged the hair on the layer under and now I can't get rid of the hair anymore... so I got frustrated and don't want to continue this for a little while now but I want to show the face I was working so hard on XD Maybe someday I'll finish it.
Raygirl13 Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2015  Professional Digital Artist
Oh WOW!!!!! :wow: But that's adorable!!!! Oh my gosh! Look at those marvelous eyes! I adore them!!!! :D 
Don't worry about the hair, think that when you paint on paper, you don't use layers like in Photoshop and you can mix colors and stuff ;) I've had this problems a lot of times before. With Photoshop, I used to select colors instead of layers in the past (because I didn't know how to use them, silly me XD ) 
If you do, please tell me! I haven't tried to do more realistic pictures like yours and I REALLY think it's gorgeous! I promise, just looking at those eyes, the nose and the mouth, I'm astonished! The full picture will be so beautiful if you finish it someday! :love: :heart:

Just keep up your great work and don't rush yourself. :aww: You know inspiration comes when it wants, so you can't always choose it, but you can find it easily if you enjoy what you're doing ;) 

Again, thank you veeeeeeery much for showing me the picture honey! I totally adore what you've done until now!!! :glomp: :glomp: :glomp: I have you on my watchlist, so I'll be keeping an eye on your channel ;) :blowkiss: Have a very nice day and keep the spirit! :#1:
