Advice for Commission Artists
After doing commissions for over a decade and watching fellow artists either struggle with their own live as freelancer or taking advantage of their popularity and high demand I got a few things to say. Maybe it helps one or the other.
 
Here are, in my opinion, the most important aspects of a successful commission business.
 
Quality :
 
You enjoy drawing your personal art more than other people’s ideas and characters? That’s perfectly understandable, just don’t let it influence the quality of your commissioned pictures. When it’s obvious that your own pictures are far more detailed and better drawn than any of your commissioned works it will make people stop wanting to order from you, even though they like your art. If someone spends money on something they want to know what to expect and not risk the artist doing a half-assed job because they didn’t like the characters / idea.
