A basic guide to setting up commissions
When it comes to commissioning, there is so much that needs to be decided, arranged and thought of that it can all appear a bit daunting at first.
However: when following a couple of basic guidelines, setting up commissions really is not as hard as you think!
If you find the article informative, please it.
First things first
So you have decided you want to start doing commissions. That's great!
The first thing to do is to determine what you want to offer.
Do you want to offer drawings, or designs?
Will you be coding journal-skins for people, or will you be pixeling?
Take a look through your gallery and try to determine what you do best and what you like to do the most.
Because that will most likely be what you'll be offering.
Stick to what you're good at.
Don't promise what you can't deliver when someone is paying you for it.
Now that y
I've been... struggling with the worst art block. I've been trying to take breaks that last no longer than a day but I hate everything I create. It's been very difficult to get into the mood but I'm very driven to draw as it's all I want to do. However, when I draw? I cringe at it and wind up throwing away or deleting what I make. I should be proud of how much I've improved over the years and simply enjoy creating but I feel the need to be better.
Because I struggle to draw backgrounds beyond what I learned in perspective class (I struggle digitally and need a reference to make backgrounds). and mechs and tech (which I love very much) I feel I am awful at everything. Yet here I am, struggling at drawing now everything- especially spaceships (SPACESHIP!) and robots. I'm starting to draw what I struggle with and don't know because I want to become good at them.
I love sci fi. I want to draw sci fi but I've always been scared to. I still am but it's time that I try. I want to draw and do what I love. I'll be doing a lot of research in my new art book and online tutorials, but it'll be worth it.
Question. How do you get through art block? I try to take a break then just play around with art after or get inspired with a project.
