I'm going on vacation! Yup, I'll be leaving June 3rd with my WHOLE family and we'll be shacking it up in Ocean City MD for a week. While I'm away on vacation I will be fully relaxing and not working on any commission work. If we are subjected to poor weather or if the mood strikes me I may work on some of the smaller ones/sketch work but other than that I want to really just relax and just focus on me and my family.
I'll be returning on June 10th and will get back to work then.

So I'll see ya'll when I get back!

Below I have copied a journal I posted to my FA in order to help explain my current standing on commission work and the queue that I have as of right now. along with some other information. If any of you want a more detailed read I have written up a better one for clients on my Docs.

This was mainly made up due to a client talking to someone else rather coming to me in person, it hurt me yes but at the same time really opened my eyes to see how long I had been taking on a few of my commissions.
As of late I've been losing track of time and if I'm disinterested in something I've been putting it off verses talking to the client and explaining to them the situation.
I want to work on this and get better, and this has helped me a lot.

Hey everyone wanted to make this journal as a way to update and explain my current commissions queue. I will always be the first to admit when I have fallen behind/lost interest in specific pieces that are own my list.

As of right now this is my current queue >> ON TRELLO

I took on Overwatch themed commissions back last year around June. It's coming up onto a year and I still have 3 on my list. I feel bad for how long I have taken on these pieces and have already updated each piece from a chibi commissions to a full figure piece to compensate the clients.
I've been slowly working on them between new work but I plan to crack down and work hard on them and try to get them done before I leave for Ocean City on the 3rd.
I hate 2 out of 3 sketched and refined all I need to do is ink and color and one I still need to sketch out.

Like I said I will be the first to admit when I have made a mistake and I did not know how detail and stressful these pieces were going to be for me at the time I took them one. I ended up getting through a good chunk of them and got 100% burnt out on them and just couldn't put myself up to working on the last 3 right away so I kept putting them off.
In the future if I am to ever take on another Overwatch piece I will have to charge more, and have to make sure I also account for extra time for work on it due to detail.

I owe sketches for a few people and will be working on all of those this week.
Once sketches are sent out the pieces will be finished in order of queue.

I am leaving for vacation on June 3rd and will not return till June 10th. During that time I WILL NOT BE WORKING ON COMMISSIONS as I will be with my family and do not want to get distracted from out time together.

I will be doing my best to get through as much work as I can before I leave. After Sunday of this week I will not be working my day job at all. With that being said I will be keeping to a hard scheduled and forcing myself to stay on track and get work done.
I also plan on streaming a lot next week in order to help keep me focused on the work I have on hand. By streaming it'll keep me from going onto Tumblr, Facebook, and any other distracting website.
I will not post links to the stream here on FA however but I will post them to my Twitter -- @RottingRootsArt

Once I get back from vacation I will be cracking down and getting through my queue. I have it set up in the order it'll be worked on within my reason. I may skip around here and there due to my mood but I will always keep you updated on your piece and where it stands.
If a piece require more focus/mental compression such as animation or super fine detail I may need to step away from it for a bit and work on something a bit more simpler in order to keep my focus and not burn out on a piece.

Alright I think that's about it for right now.
If anyone has any questions feel free to contact me.
If anyone who has been waiting forever on a piece and would like a refund please contact me I will be more than happy to talk to you and work something out.
I am 100% willing to work with all my clients and make them happy when I know I have been completely slow or am in the wrong with something.
