It hurts so much. (:3_ヽ)_
Hi there! Thanks for liking my MLP art, I’m also glad you like my other stuff too. :)
I’ve gotten advices of my own from my artist friends (with a few non-artists) and a bit of researching online. I suppose one thing I could say about opening commission is to have confidence in the rate you’re charging if you think those numbers are equivalent to your skills and time. Especially if you’re a professional you have to show value to your work and never undercharge yourself.
Admittedly few years ago, as a budding artist who was still studying and self aware that her own skills aren’t close to being a pro, I opened commissions in a local comic event by charging myself with an insanely under priced value. Granted I don’t think my art was worth much back then but I’m talking about a traditionally marker colored characters commission for only….(brace yourself) RM10 which is about USD3+- , that is crazy and therefor shall not be repeat again as it might give people the wrong idea on how to pay artists and probably ruin the market.(credit to my friends who knocked some sense into me lol ^^;) One of the best solutions is to keep honing your skills and when you think you’re ready and is capable of charging the rate you’re satisfied with then you may proceed to do so.
To sum it up, just charge the rate that you’re comfortable with without ruining the market value. If you’re uncertain about yourself, you could just start out with something simple and charge lower. There are people who draw chibi commissions and they’re generally cheaper cause it takes less time to draw. (but nonetheless beautiful based on the ones I have seen)
I hope my answers are satisfactory. I took quite some time to type this out as I’m pretty bad with words and it kinda turned into a small essay….that aside, I wish you all the best in opening your own commissions and hope that you receive a good outcome. If anything, just keep trying and things will eventually get better. :) Good luck!
Thanks. <3 My style is slowly evolving but I hope to find one that suits me most. :)
I grew up with a rounder Sonic that has shorter legs.
I’m still looking forward to Sonic Boom because I actually like some of the new designs, particularly Amy’s.
Also a friend of mine likes to call the classic Sonic as ‘Fat Sonic’.
Aaaw thanks!! I’m sorry I haven’t been active in drawing MLP lately but I’m glad my old works still help inspire you! You’re very welcome, I hope you will keep producing more art of your own. :)
My friends inspired me. This is half based on the official Adventure Time comic which you can read the previews here to get the full joke.
I’m also sorry for ruining Marceline’s character. (She’s also my fav) m(- -)m
I drew Jotaro for Saph’s birthday, then I felt empty inside so I drew a DIO, and then I spliced them together and got this
Who can’t wait for 2014!? Lucky it’s tomorrow eh
I’m not sure if there’s a way to express my happiness other than typing in CAPS but I love this too darn much. Thank you so much for the lovely Jotaro, Pandazu. <3 (And having Dio is a great addition lol)
I can’t stop staring at this image.
