Hello everyone/everypony, how are you all doing? Well, things have been pretty busy for me. With college to attend, getting a learners permit, and my mom getting on my back about getting an income. As I stated before: Busy. So with that, I might have a solution with the income but I might not get started with it until maybe this summer if I can.
So here is what I am thinking (if anyone has any helpful suggestions, please comment them below and I will look into them.): I am going to be looking at the EQD tutorial codex
and study the basics on how to draw ponies correctly (along side with my college studies). I will try to post a sketch about every week or so and ask for some constructive criticism on how to improve. Hopefully around beginning of summer or mid-summer, I could start myself off by doing about $5 commissions for sketches. (sounds like a good price to me, but how much do people usually pay for sketches?) After that, I'm not really to sure yet, but maybe I can start looking more through the tutorial codex and learn how to color my little pony's (pun intended) do backgrounds, so on and so forth.
Hopefully, by the end of the year, I will discover what my drawing style will be, doing full commissions and get a type of income for myself. (Wow, now I am grateful that people actually pay for art to be done for them.) That's what I plan so far for my future, but as you know "plan's change." So depending on what goes on in my life, there might not be sketches some weeks, might postpone the commissions until a later date, college project that has to be done, ect. Wish me luck on my future and college and see you when ever I get to posting that sketch.
