PostSubject: SHOULD I (Haru) DO DEM COMMISSSSIONS FOOR YOOU?   Sun Apr 24, 2011 11:56 pm

I shall be speaking in third person in this forum because I wanted too.
Haru went broke,
she spent it all on sakuracon buying prints and doujinshi's.. That reminds me.. WHO WANTS TO TRANSLATE A Hope x Lightning (FF13) DOUJINSHI and Saito x Chizuru (Hakuoki) DOUJINSHI?
And Haru depends on birthday, christmas, easter, every other holiday moolah.
Haru needs to earn dem money, not by dem magikal holidays...
Okay enough of this, I am actually quite fickle about this you guys :S I want to do commissions, drawing commissions over the internet because people I know in real life just don't want my drawings, meaning that they can't afford it because the students in my school are poor -.- also most of the students do not really like anime.. And some actually do request commissions but they are ducking (yes, ducking) hard, such as my recent commission was drawing Jesus, and my hand just died of sadness (but I was able to satisfy my customer.. Who is a friend)
So.. Yeah..
If you guys are wondering about the price here:
Sketch: $1-2
Inked: $2-3
Colored: $5
Digital Sketch: $8
Digitally Colored (the most expensive): $10
And I don't charge with BG or even people (urr I probably don't make sense because of my grammar, basically I just don't charge people when they ask I should do a background or doing a group image of 5 people)... So.. Yeah I've been trying to advertise in school but its not working... Not working at all..
*sobbing*
....Now if you guys think my drawings are shit I can put the price down lower xD!
...So now idk what to do.. Should I do it :U.....?

... can't find a part-time job?
not saying this won't work haruhi
if it's just us i'm sure it's fine but if you're doing this publicly you really need to build a portfolio before anything xD

I'm 15 Dreams also my parents really don't trust me to get a job yet xD,
LOL again I'm only 15 I am a total amatuer, not just yet, I'll show you examples and such but I am a complete amateur Dreams xD!
That is why I putted my drawings, really cheap compared to others, unless you too call it expensive and I had to go down to... Make my drawings 5 cents.. OTL
Besides, you really don't need a portfolio unless you are 20, I am building my portfolio for college though LOL.

no i mean the price is really cheap
it's just that if you're selling for us it's hard
cause ain't about half of us here art students? lol
if you are doing it publicly you should just use something to post your examples/portfolio work to show what you can do.
i used to use my tumblr to post my arts just haven't went back to it since i started college
might start doing that again tho.
I been just using tumblr for ranting/reblogging whatever was cool lol
since i'm on break now probably starting that up

so yeah you should try that too =p

Your art is pretty good. I subbed on deviantart a while back...

Dude, my friend from school is able to sell his drawings to people... usually $20 a pop.

What he does is requests... they send him an image (usually anime) and he draws it out with sharpie on a big poster board. Thats it! And people are really impressed and like it!

So idk.. I know you'll find people IRL who will enjoy your art eventually. I guess advertising here can't do any harm as (obviously) people here will be more into anime style art.


On a side note, I think you should just get a part time job... self-marketing your art won't be profitable at this stage IMO. (Doesn't mean you can't have fun and try it).

@Dreams, durp durp alright I suppose Razz I'll just show sketches and stuff see what i could do Razz

@Parallax, yes and I thank you for that xD!
And wow, *sobs* most people here do want to buy it, but. Usually.. They pretend that they pay me back, would it be better if they pay me first? xD
Nah I don't want it too be profitable at all, just want to have fun and see if people my art or not, I felt inspired in Sakuracon so I wanted to do some commissions.
Also, no matter what even a dollar, or just ten bucks I can live with any money really, personally it just accumulates and like I said only 15. Also I have many months before my next convention Razz!

@Parallax, oooh... OOOH :U *Le gasp* Well.. I think because of the billions of dollars in debt of my state :'D I don't expect big bucks now..

@Dreams, I wish I could but LOL NO MOTIVATION, I have ideas, but I wouldn't mind teaming up with a person with the story and I could just draw it xD!

I wouldn't mind buying but I don't have hold of any of my credit stuff [my parents think I'll spend them on useless things..which well of course I would..but..:/] Unless you want money transfer LOL
