Journal
A small talk about pricing your art
You're creating art. You have the passion, you have the skills. Why not make some money out of it then? It's a good idea, right? A lot of people live from creating art, and even more earn some money on the side by taking commissions. You should give it a shot!
So... How much money is your art worth?
It's a hard question to answer for those who are just starting their adventure with selling and creating art for money. Is its worth equal to the price of the materials you used? Is it equal to the value of the time you've spent on creating it? What about the emotional value you put into it? Should your education influence your prices?
No matter if art is your job, hobby or a pastime, you should never undervalue it. In this article I will try to give some tips as to how assess the value of your artwork and touch the problem of too low prices.
We're in it for the money.
Let's be honest - if you're reading this then you probably want

Hey! So. I went and opened up a Society6 shop and Artist Shop through Threadless. I don't have many designs up just yet but plan to add more. There's a whole bunch of items available with what I do have though! Shirts, bags, towels, curtains, blankets, phone cases, mugs, etc!

I've also added a couple things to my Patreon. The first being a goal, that if I meet, means I'll work on an actual factual personal project. Likely a visual novel type deal, but we'll see! Maybe. The second thing is a new reward tier that grants access to a Discord Server I made, so if you've ever wanted to hang out with a particularly average person now's your chance!

Dungeons and Dragons Group Commission

Cyclops Commission
Another commission! This was a little tougher than the norm since this isn't at all like the stuff I usually do. But I'm happy with how it turned out. :)
