JehrBear: Public announcement,
I'm so sick of ppl saying shit like
"Hang in there"
"Things will get better"
You dont know that..
Keep your generic, patronizing bs for someone who is stupid enough to believe that shit.
JehrBear: Damn it Wireclub,
you have a Exlusive deal with YouTube or something? What do you have against Gif links. 🙄
2020, get yo shit together.
Wake in a sweat again ~
Another day's been laid to waste~
In my disgrace ~
Stuck in my head again~
Feels like I'll never leave this place~
There's no escape~
I'm my own worst enemy~
I've given up~
I'm sick of feeling~
Is there nothing you can say?
Take this all away~
Tell me what the fuck is wrong, with me!

JehrBear: Just sold my 40 gallon aquarium.
Had it for almost a decade. Feels so empty without it in the room.
Kinda feel like I sold a piece of myself today.
JehrBear: Lol gawd ppl suck..
Did and art commission for a "friend" online.. took a garbage reference picture and made it dynamic with great contrast. Took me about 3 hours to draw out. I show it to her and and she says she loves it. But one line she wanted changed. Of course the only line in the design with color. Which means I had to trace the whole thing out and reshade it, for one line.. which is fine I want them to be happy with it and the change meant something personal to them. So I finish and send her the picture through messenger. She sees it and never replied or paid me for it. Just takes it... so I get completely screwed for all my time I put into it. Few weeks later shes bragging about how she has spent over $4000 on a stupid app game.
Like, are you kidding me?
Nothing I could do... I sent it, granted to show her and see if she was happy with it. Expecting to be paid. And they just steal it... pos ppl man. Fuck.

JehrBear: I agree I should charge more. But I'm desperate and the $20 as little as it is helps. Since I can barely get ppl to pay the small amount.. I cant see upping the price until I'm a certified tattoo artist. Then I'll be making good money and wont care if ppl arent willing to pay for my art designs.
ricktb: Sorry to hear that, ask a few more times for $ and be assertive. But in the end not much you can do if she doesnt give a crap. Next time you can embed a watermark so at least your names on it, then remove watermark after payment.
guacamoleisdope: Whenever art is being made to be sold make the appropriate changes so your emotional expectation is money and business even if this means not endorsing the final product 100% this is why an artist fights for final say in a situation where that is always prefered then you get niched and resent that which inspired motivated supported you . Moral of the story is people who work won't understand artists need to charge what a piece is worth the second part of being a legit artist is being an amazing sales person . She took a part of your soul guilt her into making that right if you can't I will guilt her and do collections for you ps maybe just send low quality jpegs from now on until payment is in hand
