Commission Problem Solving: Communication

Commission Problem Solving: Communication

A few months back, I asked artists and commissioners what their main or common complaints were in regard to the other group.  The top complaint I got from both sides was the lack of effective communication.  This is completely understandable, and I've seen this happen time and time again.  The second top complaint from commissioners is about completion time - the time it takes Artists to finish commissions. Some commissioners said it took 2-4 years to get a completed work.  I'm going to give a little comparison here that will hopefully shock artists that take that long: Michelangelo painted the majority of the Sistine Chapel in 4 years.

Guide for Artists and Commissioners

Every now and then I see some general complaints from Artists and Commissioners both.  I thought I’d take some of these common issues and complaints and make a write up for it.   Feel free to add any comments that you’d like, or any issues. I feel like sometimes there’s a miscommunication between what commissioners expect and how artists work.  The fault is on both ends.  I’m hoping that with this writeup, I can help artists and commissioners communicate better and understand things from both sides a little better. This was done kinda hastily in notepad, so revisions/edits may be forthcoming (Especially if people bri

Epic Resources List - How to Get Awesome at Art

Epic Resources List - How to Get Awesome at Art

I often get asked how to get better at drawing and painting. While the main answer is practice there are a lot of fantastic resources that will make the journey far easier; below is a list of the ones I have personally found most useful. Some are free and some are paid, if you want the paid ones please actually buy them and support the hard-working artists that spend their valuable time providing quality education. Also this is enough material to last you for, literally, years, so get one at a time, study it in detail, then once you're thoroughly finished move on to the next one. Reading a book or watching a dvd doesn't make you better. What

My Bio
Artist, wannabe-writer, creator of The Realm of Kaerwyn and Black Tapestries. Currently administrator of Kaerwyn's public RP. I also run a store in Second Life known as The WereHouse that makes animal and anthro avatars.

I don't write Kaerwyn by myself. Each character is controlled by their own player (Since all of them are actual characters in Kaerwyn's RP) So a little shoutout:

Renard is played by Oshay. (He doesn't really have a dA account)
Niixa is played by NeekIiroz
Tunc is played by seasonofclarity
Callie is played by LastHowl
All the other characters are mine.

And many thanks to redlynx9, Arrow-Quivershaft, seasonofclarity, and pythos-cheetah for giving me a subscription account! It's greatly appreciated!

Current Commission information:

For Offstream commissions: I post when I have commission available. Right now I do 3 slots on Thursdays and Fridays unless otherwise stated.

If you want an open spot, send me a note or email me at jakkal at gmail dot com
