I’m Here [WIP]

I haven’t drawn my OCs in forever and wanted to vent some feelings so this happened today. Also it’s really weird because this is definitely a vent but I’m also 100% okay and really happy? Not sure how that works. ๐Ÿค”

I also want to say that I allowed myself to draw this today because I got so much more Patreon support than I expected in my first week. I have not hit $100 yet, but still. You all make a massive difference –thank you.

My Soft, Safe, Happy Little Place [WIP] ๐Ÿš—๐ŸŒˆ

I won’t be able to work on personal art for a while but I got the basics of this idea down so I can complete it in a few weeksโ€ฆ

Worth noting is that when that I’m not asleep I’m either a) kicking the hell of the seat in front of me, or b) artfully dodging blows sent in my direction as retaliation for the kicking. ๐Ÿ˜ˆ These generally miss as I’m both small and very good at dodging.

Some Kind Of Friday

Iโ€™m not sure if today was good or bad. I guess part of the day was pretty good. I got a lot of commission progress done โ€”this is the current piece, but everything that is due this month is fully inked or half colored already:

I also did a lot of chores, and gamed a bit here and thereโ€ฆ

โ€ฆand I put together a new outfit that I was pretty happy with:

But today was also a bit lonely for me, especially in the evening. ๐Ÿ˜ž Christopher was home later than usual for a Friday. And I just kept running into little issues during the day that soured my mood. It was too humid to do my full walk. I was spacing out and had a bag of steamed rice explode in the microwave. Taking a break after working for hours, I couldnโ€™t get my Switch to play on the TV, and when I played handheld I kept dying with the same boss. ๐Ÿ˜ซ

But reallyโ€ฆ thatโ€™s all a bunch of nonsense. In reality, Iโ€™m worried about more serious things. Iโ€™m worried about someone I love, and about things I can do nothing to help or improve, as it is out of my hands. I can only offer support, with the knowledge in the back of my mind that, having been in a painfully similar mental place, there is no support I can give that can make a tangible difference. At least not beyond what I have done already. Only time can help.

Wellโ€ฆ I suppose I can also work as hard as possible, because money helps indirectly. I can also not be a nuisance, a bit harder for someone like me, but Iโ€™m trying. ๐Ÿ˜”

Really donโ€™t know what to expect from the weekend. Itโ€™s early, but Iโ€™m gonna try to get some sleep and see what it brings. It might be a good one. You never know!
