Can you say you're going grey early if you're still under thirty?

Current Residence: Canadaaa
Interests
So I'm looking at my page, and it has this 'commissions closed' journal entry that's from a year and a half ago - yikes! It's been a busy life for a while now, but that's only half the story on why I've been off the commission train for so long. The other half is that I realised I'd been seriously underpaying myself when charging for commissions. I was finding myself spending close to ten hours on a piece I was charging ten dollars for, and that's just silly.

I guess the point here is - I've been thinking for a while that I'd like to start taking commissions again; I just don't know if there's still interest, and if there is, what to do about prices. I was considering hiking them and then putting a time limit on myself so I don't end up with dollar-an-hour wages.

Is there any interest? Do people read this thing? What if I charged, like, $20 bucks for a cartoony full body drawing (like so: amytaluuri.deviantart.com/art/… ) and $25 bucks for a painted bust (like so; amytaluuri.deviantart.com/art/… ) ?

Or something?

While I'm figuring that out, let's just say that I'm open to made-to-order commissions where we discuss what you want arted and negotiate a one-off price. If there's any demand for such a thing, you can drop me a line and we'll see if we can find something we both consider reasonable!

Art art art art,
Amy

Dawww I'm glad :D
So, if you don't mind me asking, how successful overall would you say your weekend was at comiccon? I'm considering the possibility of trying to get a half table or something next year...

It was definitely more successful than I thought it would be! I'd say that a decent portion of it was doing at-table commissions, too. It was also super fun x) Anything like this is always a risk, but it's not a thousand dollar investment or anything, and it's fun, so I'd say give it a try!

Hi Amy! Was great to meet you at ComicCon this weekend, and I love the drawing of Windy Summerbreeze you made for me! Once I get it coloured (I'll probably try inks as well as pencils before even attempting digitally!) I'll send you a scan of it. :)
