I think I should stop doing commissioned clothing for two reasons:
1. Sometimes I'm very fast but there are a few right now that are dragging on a long time. In part that is because the texture previewer is not working right but also, to be honest, because at least one just hasn't sparked my interest. I'm not being fair to those people.
2. I spend 10 or 20 hours on an outfit that might have many parts including objects, then I sell it just once to the person who commissioned it. All my work is hand drawn, and a file might have 30 layers or more. I put everything on separate layers so I can change things as needed. I go pixel by pixel on the edges. Commissions are never what I would do if left to my own devices, in fact people usually want versions of things they've seen before. My own things are made up by me, and I can sell each one many times. It's interesting to do some random jobs, like the Asian Dancer outfit, however, most of them are not as interesting. My own things are always interesting to do.
I do think that anyone who gets a custom outfit from me is lucky that I am so stupid :-D
