First off, sorry for being inactive! >_<
After my last art submission on Christmas I had to leave everything behind. Everything as in my home and my life there. In other words, I'm now away from my home country. It's difficult to live 'kinda by myself' now (I'm not really living alone but with my brother, but since I barely see him it feels like living alone ;_; ), and much worse when it's in another country of different levels. It's been 4 months already, but it feels like it's been more.
I'm now a college student, and following graphic design as a career.. but I'm not quite satisfied with my choice. I'm uncertain about this. Do graphic designers even earn enough income?
I'm aware I may sound like a money-beggar or someone who wants to be pitied.. but eh.. how can I say this? I'm running short of money. e_e Ever since I arrived here, my brother moved away from my aunt's for the first time so we wouldn't bother her anymore. The first two months ran smoothly, but now we're having problems. My brother works and attends college while I just go to the latter because it's my first year, but something isn't right in me. I would like to help him in some way.. apart from saving money by only eating dinner and avoiding making friends (friends = going out)..
I'd like to work, but the problem with my character/personality is that I'm way too shy and insecure of myself, and I can't interact with strangers at all. Heck, I can't even meet their eyes. I don't have any confidence.
That's where I thought, "would it be possible to earn even just a small amount of money through the internet? with my drawings?
" I hope so.
Guys, I know my art isn't that special nor eye-catching, but would any of you be interested to commission me? My only hope relies here and only here. Would $5 per chibi be too much? Cause that'd help me a lot. I still don't own my personal computer, since well, got no money. I'm using my brother's laptop right now, and I have permission to use it as long as I can get something out of it (homework, or in this case: some income). To be quite honest, I'm really scared and worried. I'd never imagined I would fall be this broke..
I miss home, but that's because I didn't have to worry about food, expenses, rent, college, etc.
I just wish I could run away from reality..
