I'm over my illness (initially) and I'm drawing today, working on long overdue gifts. I'll upload a sketch dump of the WIP's just as a head's up, in a few days probably.

Keep in mind, I'm trying to do three or four right now so I'm gonna be very very busy. :XD:

OK. I see now. Read it. Hm. This is news. Are you SURE? Because honestly I don't mind. True, I haven't started it yet, I just got caught up. But I mean...it's no trouble. I'm going to be focusing really hard the next month and finish everything on my To Do List. And I mean EVERYTHING.

Yeah but here's the thing, Asante. (you can hide my comment if you don't want this public but) I see people really...Idk...take advantage of you I guess? They SEE how busy you are, or maybe they don't see, Idk. And they just, don't take that into consideration. You're extremely sweet and so when you ask people like ''Hey your birthday's coming up, what would you like?'' even though you have more than enough on your plate....

What I'm trying to say is, I feel really bad. I kept changing my request, I'm sure this stressed you out enough and I think you got sick because you were stressed and ovewhelmed. You're not an art machine.
And so, I hated seeing you suffering, so PLEASE do not worry about it, your friendship is the best gift I've ever had, and besides, you';ve been doing Godfather art on your own and I loved those so much so just don't worry about it, kat? :)
Besides November is coming up soon again and that's the thing. The minute you're done with gifts you gotta do more and...

I know you're stressed because you have a lot of friends and you wanna show you love them but you never do anything for yourself. Half your gallery's full of gifts now and you never get a chance to work on originals, which I know you want to.
I just think you should do one big gift for everyone and take a year vacation just ONCE. They're not gonna mind, I'm sure. Give yourself a break, they appreciate everything you've done for them I'm sure. They'll understand if you need a break. :hug:

Hm. OK, I do get stressed and overwhelmed sometimes, but not because I feel tied down. I LOVE doing stuff for people, it makes me happy when they're happy. You guys, like, aren't burdens. :XD:
I get stressed because I hate my art and my style, and I want to improve so much. Sometimes I feel I could do so much better (I look at my old shit and I'm like ''You call THAT a GIFT?''). And sometimes my heart is not it.

Otherwise, when I'm having GOOD art days, like today, I can turn on some music and chug through it, and it turns out OK. Not amazing, but OK. And if my client is satisfied, that's all that matters. :)

Besides, even if I did decide to take a year off I wouldn't know what to draw for EVERYONE. People like art of their original characters and stuff, I wouldn't be able to satisfy everyone with one single gift. And drawing a huge picture of everyone's OC's is too much work for me, that can take a year in itself and would contradict the point of a ''vacation'', yes? XXDD

So anyways, I'm not stressed because I'm doing stuff for people, it's just my internal struggle with myself, and with my art.

Anyways, are you 100% POSITIVE? If I can't make up for last Nov, I can still draw Fredo or Fredo/Deanna for THIS November. I have a REALLY good idea for them, I found a free ebook on Google Books and one of the scenes in the book I just loved and it gave me an idea. So anyways, I promise I'll get around to it, hopefully by the end of August. I'm almost done with the two gifts I'm working on now and then I'll be finishing the others soon. Seriously, I'm almost done, I know I keep saying that, but I'm serious this time. :P I'm gonna upload my progresses, I'm not joking, I am literally almost through the list~!
