A lot of people keep asking me questions about commissions/trades/requests. I figured I'd make a journal here answering the most commonly asked questions.
First off, I only really make these offers through Deviantart. Unless we talk about these things via FB or Skype.
I'm still basically making the to do lists, uploads, and offers through DA.
Now on with the questions; Commissions 1. Are you open for commissions?
At this moment in time 1/18/13, no, I am not open for commissions.
You can keep an eye out for either a journal announcing when I'll be open, or you can look at the icons on my profile page. Which can be found in the upper right hand corner in the " Donate" widget.2. When will you be open for commissions?
I do not know when I'll be open for commissions.3. What are your prices?
I plan to alter my commission prices soon, So please do not ask me about my prices, and do not look to old journals about the prices.4.Can I please be put on a waiting list?
Seeing as I don't know when I will be open again, I am not going to be making a waiting list. I'll make a waiting list when I am going to be open again, in-which case, I will post a journal about. Just keep your eye open for that journal. Trades 1. "Can we please do a trade?"
As fun as trades are...And there are some people I'd like to ask for a trade...... I only really do trades with good friends these days. Meaning, I'd have to know you for a while.
Or perhaps I'd do a trade with another artist that I am interested in trading with (An artist I myself admire, respect, etc...)
So, please, Unless I post a journal stating that I'd be open to trades(and I have been thinking of doing that lately
for funzies!! ), please don't ask me. Just keep your eyes out for announcements and such.
OR!!! Sometimes, I may just go and ask a person to do a trade with me! You never know!!! Trades are fairly fun. Requests 1. Will you please draw my character?
This is kind of becoming a pet peeve of mine...... Please do not ask me to give you a full on free drawing of your character. While I do draw people's characters for free...Often times, they're gifts
, people aren't even asking for a drawing! I only really do requests for really good friends of mine. People I've known for years.
Or sometimes, If I am going through someone's gallery, someone I don't even know, and I see a character of theirs I like?...BOOM! A free gift drawing on a whim. Because I am like that. So please. Do not ask me for free drawings. Even my good friends don't ask me very often. I often times just draw them something without them asking, because I just feel like it. I do like giving gifts.
And don't ask for gifts.....its the same as asking for a free drawing. Collaborations 1. Wanna do a collab?
Even though I do not get asked this one often, I feel I should at-least talk about it. It's probably worth mentioning.
And pretty much my answer to this is the same with trades, please do not ask me to collab with you on a drawing. Unless I say that I am open for a collab, or If you and I are good friends.
OR! I may just go and ask someone to do a collab with me! You never know!!
So, all in all, Keep an eye out on my profile page to see if I am even open for trades/commissions/requests/collabs. I usually have little icons or buttons that say what I do and don't have opened. They can be found on the upper right hand corner of my profile page here on deviantart. In the "Donate" widget.
The icons look like this;
Sometimes I may even go and ask YOU for one of these things. Who knows!?
If you have any more questions, please ask in this journal.
Thank you for reading.
