Advice for Commissioned ArtistsSince I started taking commissions, I've gotten a fair amount of notes and emails asking for advice on how to get into the commission world. I have typed up some information below for artists to consider if they are interested in taking on commissions.Advice for Commissioned Artists4 years ago in Personal More Like This
If you are unsure on how much to charge for commissions, then I highly advise you take a look at other artists who are of equal skill to you and see what their commission prices are set at. Get a few examples and take the average for the safest bet. After setting your prices, ask a few friends to look your numbers over and see if they seem reasonable. If not, ask for advice on what would be more appropriate.
*** Note: It's also important to note the currency differences for other countries.
2.) Waiting Lists
Don't do them. At least, I highly advice you don't. Your waiting list could stretch over months and often times a commissioner would rather c

In your all of your short little pathetic life for some strange reason you always wanted to be that pimp covered in bitch's, by bitch's I mean the Dave, John, Karkat and sollux bitch's. You never understood why they hung out with you but, they fucking did! You are like the leader of the group, you have a posy! When you guys walk together you are in the middle, Dave and John on your right, and Karkat and Sollux on your left.
Now one night you forgot to turn off your swag and you woke up covered in bitch's. No joke! Seriously you woke up covered in bitch's! Dave is wearing a red dress and black boots, John is wearing a dancers outfit, and Sollux and Karkat are dressed like hooker sluts.
"What the ever loving fuck?!" You said sitting up. They smiled and surrounded you. "Uh...

You and your best friend Sprint through the woods. Passing by all of the trees you hope that slender man is here. And yes you do know slender man. You can vaguely hear Mark and Dark come closer. They follow you and you both knew it.
The both of you sprint and hear them get closer. Then. Silence. You stop, breathless. you look behind you, and you heart lifts. There stood slenderman. Mark and Dark bellow him. "Slender!" You scream. He doesn't look back but is somehow defeated by them. Just hanging on a tree limb. Dark teleports to the both of you.
You wake up. Naked. you cover yourself. Then you hear someone chuckle out of nowhere. Dark appears with Mark. Dark gets on top of you and you look away only to be met with your friends eyes. With Mark on top of her.
"Awww. Why don't you look at me Babe?" He says as he moves you head to look at him.

all alone dancing in the dark.
You have been dating Karkat for almost five years, and yet he hasn't gotten an action from you. You knew that he wanted you...you wanted him, too. But, why didn't anything happen. Cuddles, heated kisses, sloppy make outs in bed, but that's it. You thought how every night you two slept on your shared bed. To you 25 was to old to still be a virgin. And that's what he thinks. No one really knew that Karkat has a bit of a dirty mind and thoughts don't satisfy.
Tell me baby if it's wrong, to let my hands
do what they want. Late at night I pretend

Karkat came home and something just wasn't....right. No sound, at all. "Babe? Where the fuck are you?" He grumbled. He walked into the bed room to find the lights of

Her arms are thorny branches. You back up slowly and end up falling. You hear growling and you look behind you. Jade is coming up to you. She's also different. You scream and someone grabs your arm.

This is a guide on how to make a character suitable for the pokemon universe that is set for this group!
>> In a world where the lands and countries float as immense islands in the sky, separated by the kingdoms law and orders. These lands cleansed for typings, isolated by their nations as a war thrives between them. People blessed with powers from the gods born with a sign that defines them as Guardians, part human, part pokémon.
Leaders of these Kingdoms
So you’ve looked around and you’ve liked what you’ve seen. You’re ready to make a character but you don’t know where to start? That’s why you’re here! So how about you ask yourself a few questions:
- What kingdom do I want to join?
- Does my pokémon fit that kingdom?
- Is my character dressed for the setting?
- Can other see my character as I do?

So many artists underpricing...It makes me really sad.So many artists underpricing...8 months ago in Personal More Like This
When an artist you want to commission finally open their commissions back and all of their slots are taken in less than a minute.
And I'm sure all the slots would still be taken if the price was increased of x2-x10.
So many artists are still underpricing themselves. People make it a standard for art to sell for so cheap and whenever someone charge more than this standard, which is probably still underpriced, people complain.
By underpricing yourself, you are also contributing to keep the price standard of art low on this site. Charging low can be insulting to other artists, but also to yourself.
Please, don't ever feel like you need to underprice yourself, because of the fear of what other might think or say. You art is worth more than that. There will always be someone complaining, you cannot please everyone. Your time, the efforts, the skills you gained over years of hard work, is worth far way more than a few cents/points.
If you ever open your commissions an

I suppose it's time I made something like this to answer random commonly asked questions about my art and me but there really isn't anything interesting about me...
Feel free to spam comment with crazy and non-related anything you were dying to know... I have a feeling I unleashed a terrible monster. I'll try to be as honest as possible if it's art-related but everything else is up for grabs. /shot
What art program(s) do you use?
Adobe Photoshop CS5. (Pretty exclusively. Honestly, there's not much of a difference between programs and skill - yes specific programs have limitations that can't be overcome, but I'm sure by the time you get there, you would know how to expand your repertoire without me telling you, haha. I advocate using whatever you want (Sai/GIMP/PS/Painter/etc) but stick to one at first and master the quirks of it before you move on.) too lazy to learn anything else
