Some thoughts on commissions from a commissioner.I commission art a lot. I've commissioned from many different artists all over the world. And after several years here are a few on my own personal thoughts on commissionsSome thoughts on commissions from a commissioner.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
1. List you prices.
- Whether its flat rates or by the hour, artists that commissions should list their rates. Most the time the old saying "If you have to ask, it probably costs to much." really comes into play here. I'm so much more likely to commission someone where I can gauge my budget. I myself am a single income family of five. That means I have a budget. A budget means I shop around. So that means when I am comparing artists if I know what I can spend with one and not the other, I'm more likely to go with the one I know I can budget.
2. List your customers.
- It is so much easier for a person to know where they stand when you have them listed.
2½. Update your customers.
- Most artists have an idea how long something is going to take. Now it's understandable that the idea isn't always acc
Contest - Music Winners AnnouncedYou have spoken! The winners have been decided!Contest - Music Winners Announced2 years ago in Personal More Like This
With a great concept, idea, and execution, Loss and Gain was sure to be a favorite. We all need to see the color in our lives.
Love Song is a wonderfully emotive piece, and the carry-through of a difficult concept like the release of pain through music is amazingly well-done.
Music Girl is very clean, expressive and beautiful. It has wonderful detailing and a generally bright mood.

I am so excited about how well the contest gone so far. Over 100 entries! I had not originally figured we'd have so many when I put together the voting system, so I'll be tweaking it a bit.
Voting starts tomorrow, Sept. 3, EDT. I will be splitting the entries into 3 sections. These entries will be submitted as three separate journals that will be up for voting for about 2 weeks. (The journals will be submitted one after the other, not at the same time.) The top 4 entries from each journal (12 altogether) will go into a fourth and final journal, where the winners will be voted on and determined.

I believe this is a great redesign of the original outfit and it has a great layout,
with comments and illustrations to clearly show the outfit's design. I fell in love
with the design and it's components, color schemes, and details. I can't wait
to draw Sunozone in that outfit!
I loved this so much, it was so hard to choose the other outfit over this one. I
love the tomboy look and how it stood out against the others. I loved the
goggles, shirt design, but most of all, those amazing pants!
