[Tutorial] How to set up and handle commissions
This is directed mostly towards digital/traditional artists, but also literature artists!
 At some point in your artistic life, you might want to start earning a bit of extra money from the work that you love to do; yet I see that many people struggle with commissions, especially in the beginning. Thus I decided to write this little "How to" journal, where I share my own experience. =) (Smile)
1. When do I start to do commissions?

Whenever you want to, and especially, whenever you feel comfortable doing so! Especially that last part is important. I remember lots of people asking me if I were doing commissions years ago, and I had to say "no" to all of them, simply because I didn't feel ready for it. I was also completely nervous when I started doing commissions for the first time; what if no one would respond? What if the commissions were way too difficult to handle? What if I got negative responses?
I started doing commissi

Commission - Approach and Pricing Guide
Do you do commission work? Do you have trouble to get customers in order to buy commissions from you? Or Are you in a dilemma to set your own "competitive" commission price?
If your answer is "yes" to any of the above questions then you are at the right place! Today, I'll tell you (or at least give you a better idea) how to start up with your commission work and setting up the right price.
A little introduction about myself: I am a hobby-driven artist who mainly deals with CSS coding and graphics designing (now) in deviantART. As a profession I am currently employed as an online marketing professional who looks after two leading online gaming brands. I like to help people customize their pages and support them to be a better artist in deviantART.
Having given my short introduction let us first understand that why most of us face a lot of trouble to get commission work or worst, to set up the "right" price for their service.

Setting up commissions tutorial
I've done commissions myself for a while and also commissioned lots of others, so I kinda know what works and what doesn't. So why not do a tutorial for it and share my knowledge? Keep in mind this is just based off my experiences and may be different from what others say. 
Figure out how you want to do it. There's several ways to set up commissions and in my opinion making a journal for it is the best way to do it. You can use the widget to put on your page, but people tend to overlook those and if someone asks to see your commissions there's no link you can give them. I've personally never commissioned someone through a commission widget. I don't notice them and they're just weird in general so I stay away from them. One way I've noticed people do it is by having a stash document just like a journal, but a journal that was never submitted. I don't mean to offend anyone if that's what you do, but I think it's the absolute worst way to set up commissi
