Wow, it was time I got rid of that 2011 entry. Gosh, I went back to my old ones, and the 2010 me is SO embarrassing. I can't believe so much time has passed. 

I feel kinda depressed about my art. First, because I've never been commissioned. I've also recently entered college (not even in art - yet) and have a lot of struggles practicing regularly. The massive assignments and the stress that comes with it are already eating up most of my time, creativity, and motivation, along with procrastination. And the last time I tried painting digitally, I was strongly disappointed. I guess the fact that I'm generally alone in this big city away from my loved ones doesn't help.

I'm aware the only way I can get out of this is by practicing non-stop, referencing a lot, and working on my weaknesses. But I'd be sooooooo extatic if someone were to commission me, like that would be so motivating and beneficial to my art!

Does any of you who read me and actually are commissionned have advice about how to get started? Like princing, advertising, networking, I don't know?

Hey, you're much welcome! Just wanted to tell you how I LOVE your tutorials and gallery and your many experiments  and your insightful advices, and you're SUCH and inspiration! So thank YOU :D

And yes, I finally got him, he's second-hand so he already had a name (Yugi) and a few unfortunate issues to boot (he was three years old and had two owners before me, and while I don't know what happened when he was with them, what I got is a parrot with biting/screaming habits, minimal socialisation and a (curious) preference for men and dislike for women, which, in our case, was a real problem). But since then he has much improved and is coming back the right way :D Thanks a lot for asking! :aww: 
Do you have any birds, or pets? :D

Oh poor baby! It's hard to work with second hand birds, they come with a lot of baggage! considering how long you've had him sounds like you're doing good! I don't personally own any birds, but I'm the primary bird keeper at our local zoo. Most of the parrots are ancient and were once peoples pets. There is a wide range behavioral problems. But we did just 5 green cheeks and a jenday, all just silly little babies that I can't help but adore. The jenday in particular I just love to pieces.

Teehee :D 

Yes, and thanks! It's been hard as he was my first bird, but now he's a happy little chirping fella, even though  his old fears/habits still come back at times! 

Oh wow, what a great, rewarding job that must be. That's always been my dream job besides making art for a living. I understand how much of a challenge it must be taking care of those (sometimes heavily) scarred sweeties. But I can imagine how all they're asking for is a little compassion and understanding, and how full of love they must be when you give it to them! 

Please, could you tell me more about your little occupants? They sound very endearing! And I'd love to hear about what you do as a bird keeper!
