Want more commissions?This journal is for artists who want to get more commissions, or want to open commissions and never had so they don't know how best to present their art, or even for those artists who took commissions before but would appreciate some more tipsMore Like This
There are a few pretty important things to consider before publicly announcing you're opening commissions:
1. payment method. The deviantart commission widget takes 20% of your profit, but then again more deviants have points so you're likely to get 20% more customers like that. But don't forget there are people who have paypal and don't feel like dealing with points so if you decide to open commissions through deviantart, don't let that be the ONLY payment method.
Paypal is the most common payment method used online and i strongly recommend it. Make a paypal account, connect it to a card and you're ready. But don't forget paypal has a limit of $3000 per year withdrawal. So if you're serious about drawing art for a living and you
[Revised] How to Protect Yourself Against FraudUPDATE - OCTOBER 2, 2014:More Like This
Paypal has changed their layout, you can still send invoices but you can no longer select digital goods.
I haven't had time to really look into it and come up with a solution.
but you pretty much HAVE to send out something physical now if you want to be fully protected. There's still main points in this journal that describe how to go about that.
This Journal is currently Under Revision.
Points have been brought to my attention that have caused me to need to revise this journal.
I am still digging around on my free time to see if I can find a way around this. I will update daily.
Please note that this is specifically for Artists who use Paypal to sell digital goods.
OK, so there has been many artists being scammed lately through Paypal with large chargebacks. If you have been hit by a chargeback recently please feel free to note me and I will try my best to help
Tips to Remember for selling your ArtIntroductionMore Like This
First things first, a quick introduction coming from myself. My name is Jade Choung, but I am better known as mzzazn / mzzy on the world wide web. I am an artist that primarily focuses on digital media. My art work produced for income is of the anime/manga genre. A majority of my publicity is derived from deviantART.com. I have held the position of Community Volunteer (CV) on this popular art website in the past. A community volunteer is pretty much a moderator. This means, there's a handful of tasks given to a CV on this website, but one that last a huge impact on me was selecting Daily Deviations ('spotlights' for art pieces that are reselected every day).This is important because it taught me to see what kind of art appeals to the greater public on deviantART.

Commissions [CLOSED][Edit] - September 2nd- I reached my goal!! Thank you for helping out. ^p^More Like This
[Edit 2]- June 1st, 2014- UPDATED COMMISSION PRICES - I've been getting a bunch of requests for commissions and it's taking me a bit longer to do commissions because I'm trying to get used to my style. Plus a lot of other artists think I'm underpricing myself, being a junior is going to take away a lot of my time and I'm trying to do artbook work + make my own artbook so....I think I need to spend my time wisely, given that I also don't have an official job. This is all I really have. Sorry, especially to people on my waitlist. If you want to be taken off, please comment or note me. Those that have already paid before the change do not have to pay extra. I'll finish your commission asap~ Thanks!
Please read the rules before placing an order.
CT WIPs - Here They Come Just In TimeA couple of things: GIMP lags on me now which makes it a pain on me and my laptop to record process videos. And since tumblr has a following size that's a third of my dA, a lot of people may be missing my WIP shots. So I hope it won't bother anyone that I make and update journals that show my process. I hope you'll find them interesting and inspiring. And also, I hope people will stop asking me what program I work in lol on top of the fact that it's listed in my interests under Tools of the Trade, I've also had a FAQ made so please check those before asking questions. Further info about my process will be located under each WIP shot!More Like This

Tough Love: How To Make A ComicOr Decide You Don't Want To After All.More Like This
I've seen comic how-to-get-started guides before, and they're all so ninny-nippled they word it like anyone can make a comic, wow, so magical and fun!
Wrong. Everyone and their pet dog has a "story" they want to "write" or "make a comic of." Face it, it ain't gonna happen for 99% of us. You gotta have self-discipline and stubbornness to get anything done. And you can't just avoid the stuff that sounds too hard. It's a package deal.
1. Having a character doesn't mean you've done anything. Maybe you've spent a year deciding on the perfect hairstyle and three years before that developing his complex personality, and technically, you spent the entirety of your high school career on him too, since he's a "redesign" of an old fancharacter--who cares! Making characters doesn't take years. In fact, you're hurting your story by keeping characters around for that lon

My Two cents on Portfolio ReviewsYou know, I see quite a bit of portfolio on a regular basis, and even more so when I go to comic con and CTN.More Like This
This time around was the same thing, I saw quite a few portfolios. Some good ones and some that miss the mark.
There were a few in particular that caught my eye.. a few extremely good ones, and a few that just didn't work, and I wanted to try and share my opinions about portfolios in general.
This is just my point of view, based on MY experience and definitely not a definitely law, rule, or "must do". Just what I noticed in many student's and young professional's portfolios.
The first thing that strikes me is how similar portfolios can be from one student to another..I can almost always tell when one student is from Art Center, San Jose State, Otis, Sheridan or any other major school. It's a good thing and a bad thing. Mainly a bad thing though
Just a few personal thoughts on portfolios since I just came back from comic con and saw a ton over there.
Your portfolio should be a r
