Now that things have settled, and the former mate is apparently no longer here (I know, how cowardly of me... but trust me... the last thing I need is more drama). Basically, what was going on, is that after I created her character, she wanted me to draw her again.... and again... and again... and so on. Now, I'm sure everyone here knows full well I have no issues with gift art... but like every artist here, it's not something you ASK for, it's something you find out about one day that I'm doing, and for my ex... that wasn't good enough. On top of that, when I was drawing my most recent images, she became jealous that I was drawing a female character (that wasn't hers), even though the characters in question belonged to guys. I am not making this up. And on top of that, she was worried that I would be working with a model and suddenly fall for said model... uhm... right... I don't even think Evil Kinevil could make THAT leap.
Seriously, show of hands from my watchers that do modeling... how many of you are married? Also, of those that aren't, how many go to a shoot WITHOUT a third party present? Yeah, that's what I thought....
Ok, now, what about the people taking the pictures? Yeah, if your spouse wasn't ok with it, I'm sure they'd be vocal about it by now.
Art as a whole is a professional realm, and artists like myself are well versed in the unofficial rules and regs of the trade, and we don't 'get things on' because a model of the other gender is naked in front of us. Now, I've considered myself lucky over the last couple years were a couple women have decided to model for an image, and have complete trust in me... I have zero intentions of breaking that trust. It's something that takes YEARS to build, and only seconds to destroy, and that's not me.
On a more cheery note, my laptop did infact sell, and although I only got 150 for it (+25 in shipping), it's a start towards my ultimate goal of getting out of Arkansas (preferably forever). I have some Warhammer 40k models I'm planning to sell (Imperial Guardsman and Space Marines), as well as some old electronics that I don't use (and sadly... that's likely to include my 360 since I've gone full PC gamer...). So, if anyone's interested, leave a comment, or drop a note and we'll talk turkey. With any luck, I'll find a place soon, and will be able to leave and find a decent job. Cross your fingers everyone, I'm certainly crossing mine.
