Hello I am Astral Kepeire

Pretty much all the art you get from me is going to be Zelda related, although I like some other things too.

Who cares about my interests, really.

What does it take to be happy anymore? I don't know. Every day feels worse than the previous. I want to draw but I lack the motivation to. I feel like there's no point to it. Back when I was younger on dA, I would post shitty art. Not intentionally, it was just my lack of skill. I got comments from my watchers and friends, which turned into conversations and were... fun. I felt like there was more of a community and there was satisfaction in talking to my friends. Now it's hard to find community anywhere, least of all here, and nothing about sharing my art seems fun anymore. Often I can still drive myself to draw because I love to do so, but it's all so unfulfilling in the end.

My health has been getting worse, My feet ache and the pituitary adenoma has grown and is fucking with all my hormones. My hair falls out, I've gained weight, and I'm constantly alternating between too depressed to get out of bed and too irritated to talk to my family members without snapping. I can't keep up with dishes and I feel like a failure.

On top of that I can't stop worrying about financial issues. It shouldn't be my problem, but it is because when money gets tight, my stepfather takes it out on my mother for not having a "real" job and I can't stand to watch her take all the heat of it. But what can I do? I barely have the energy to take my sister to school on the bus, much less get a job, and art commissions are few and far between.  

if I don't do what's expected of me, if I can't do ANYTHING, I have no real reason to live

I just want to be happy again.

What is society6?
Astralstonekeeper Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2014  Student Digital Artist
It's a website that allows you to sell your art as prints or on various items such as tshirts, pillows, mugs, and iphone cases

They require really high res images though and their base price is insane-- for a $17.68 8x10 print, I only make a $5 profit. 

BUT you can get tote bags and coffee mugs and I figure I might as well TRY to sell some of my art as prints

Hiya astral! I've been a poop at keeping up with people, how are you?! :D
I just saw that one of your deviations was used by someone on, and I wasn't sure if you knew about it.…
It's one of their stories at the bottom with Vaati and the wind waker.

Ye ah so am I |D seeing as it's taken me a good 11 days to get to this???

But uhm, wow. This caught me by surprise. I certainly didn't know about it, and I know the general rule is to be upset when your art is used without permissions but even now I'm still in shock that they did at all?? So I'm still not sure how to react tbh o ,o

BUT other than that I've been okay. stressed out about school-- about to finish up my associate's degree and stressing about what to do AFTER that-- get a bachelor's? (from where?) get a job, or both? (and if both, who will take care of transporting my sister and making dinner???)
