Original Characters Fanart Commissions Trade

I love getting fanart and commissions and trades of my characters :heart: They all reside in this folder so I can always find 'em (even though I save 'em all onto my laptop anyways >w<)

Opinions please?

Journal Entry: Wed Oct 15, 2014, 10:42 AM
Things are starting to get rough financially and I've been trying to figure out ways of earning some more money on the side. I'm also trying to save for a house which is starting to prove impossible with our $600 per month rent living in a window-less basement apartment beneath my in-laws home (...yup), our giant payment for my hubby's truck which we're trying to get rid of because the payments are drowning us, our credit card bills piling up, and now medical bills for my hubby's extensive dental work he'll be getting done for the next few months. So here were my ideas:

  • I may start making adoptables. I've been noticing how successful artists have been designing creatures and selling said designs as adoptables (like nekoi, sushi dogs, diplings {my favorite!}, and weavers, for example). It would work better than doing commissions for me cause then I don't have to draw anything I'm uncomfortable with or may be difficult for me, I'll make something easy for me to redraw with lots of customization options so I can make many varieties and keep making more to sell.
  • I've been hesitant about this option but I may do it. Almost like making a kick starter type thing but it's called patreon? You do this thing where you have people donate a certain amount of money each month (though I'd just prefer something with a total/end goal), and depending on the amount that's donated you get specific rewards, for example if someone donates $5 they get a sketch, $20 they get a sketch and drawing, etc.
Now just for clarification, I'm not struggling, I'm making enough to get by and have food on my table, feed my pets, make my bills each month (usually) and treat myself to a few things every now and then, but I'd like to live a little more comfortably and be able to have something left to save at the end of the month and pay off mine and my husband's credit card debt and save towards a small house (I NEED to get out of my dark cave of an apartment, it's making me so depressed). Before I do anything, I still owe the winners of my "500 watchers giveaway" their art, but I was just wondering if anyone thought these might be good ideas for the future. Please also share if you have any other ideas for me to make more side money! I'd really appreciate it.

Artist | Hobbyist | Varied

My name's Brittney, I'm 22 years old, and I live on Long Island, NY. I'm a mixed media artist; I draw, sculpt, paint, animate, and photograph, but drawing and sculpting are my strengths. I have an Associates Degree in Graphic Design as of December 2011, which I recently discovered is completely useless and was a huge waste of time and money. I love Beast Boy, Teen Titans, animals ('specially kitties and ratties), cosplaying, comic/pop culture conventions, and I miss the good old days when 2D animated movies were still coming out in theaters. Talking about religion makes the majority of people uncomfortable but this needs to be said because it's the biggest part of who I am and the focus of my life; I'm one of Jehovah's Witnesses and take not only my spiritual health, but the spiritual health of others very seriously. As a result, I am a volunteer in the door to door ministry and on average, dedicate 70 hours each month to encourage Bible reading and to help people to develop a relationship with our Creator. There's nothing more satisfying to me than that. I've also been married to the weirdest little dude I know since March 8th, 2014 and my life has never felt more right.

It's alright, I'm at the hospital with my great grandma, everyone is certain she's going to pass away. She was on oxygen and they took it off and we thought she'd die within minutes and now she's talking up a storm, she's a real fighter.
