This is something I normally do not do on deviantArt, of which I reserve for Fur Affinity. Generally, the Journals on dA are reserved for anecdotes on the artistic community, mostly that of deviantArt. My apologies that this time around any extent of observation or sinister wit are lacking. For those wanting an actual Journal, the plan will likely be something along the lines of completing one of the to-dos from my "12 Days of Tiny Journals" within the next two weeks. Of the extent of experimentation, it is mostly to see really what sort of commission culture really is on dA by being outright blunt... Would anyone on dA be willing to commission me here? The majority of the commissions I do are for people from Fur Affinity, or individuals who have simultaneous deviantArt and Fur Affinity accounts. Given the nature of Fur Affinity this means that on deviantArt, there are a lot of images I can't/won't post, and a lot of the ones that are tend to be provocative or somewhat distasteful (I have received complaints ranging from "Why do I edit some?" to "Why I don't post everything I draw" to "I wish people would ask you (me) for nicer things). I would like to show more variety than just furries and smut and would be delighted to offer my skills to those in a community I believe have a greater appreciation of artistic skill over just money shots.
For anyone interested (or remotely curious) you can view my commission guide below (all the links are safe). And my apologies once again for not creating a productive journal:
