I just failed a pathetic attempt at getting a summer job, but I'm not gonna talk in detail about this because WOW EMBARRASING. But this was kinda my last hope at geting a part-time job, and it was shattered to pieces and I feel bad about it because DANG I really wanted to make some money this summer.
So I though, heck, I'm gonna start doing commissions. Because that I can actually do. Unlike customer service holy shit can anyone imagine me working at customer service that is impossible DAMN. Nothing huge that would take me weeks to complete of course, but doing some simple pictures for people on DA/tumblr I am more than happy to do.
But here's my problem:
I have no clue where to start... because I need some sort of a price chart, and ugh, here start the steps, and this is why I haven't opened commissions yet, even though I was thinking about it for quite a while now.
Because I really have no idea how to price my stuff. (8""
Knowing my ridiculously low self-esteem I would sell it WAY too cheap, which I don't want to do because I actually always try my best when I work on something (excluding stuff I draw at 3 am just for shit and giggles) , especially if it's meant for someone else. (Plus, I don't think I'm THAT bad of an artist at this point? maybe??) But then again I'm afraid of overpricing it and having people go all "wow who does this pompous chick think she is!? B( "
Uh, I wish I could just get someone who I trust to do this price chart for me, and I'd just go along with it.
And then I have another problem, because I don't even have any good examples to put up, because my art is so inconsistent it's not even funny. I have at least three different art styles I use, with things in-between, and even the way I color is all over the place because I often like to try different things 6w9 Not to mention the stuff I draw in my free time for myself is... how do You put it... usually not something I would like to put as a commission example 8D" yeah.
So yep, I'm just really nervous, and I don't want to do this alone. It's first time I'll be doing something like this, and I don't really trust myself with this kind of stuff, and I'm just really lost and confused.
Or maybe I'm just thinking too much about this?
P.S: Sorry for being all whine-y in this journal, it's just that calling this job lady made my stupid anxieties rush back in, and now I feel like a total loser again. But I'm pretty sure I'll get over this by tomorrw, so try to ignore it! (8
