2nd commission, sore throat and a proud new uncle!

Journal Entry: Wed Feb 3, 2010, 7:30 AM
The throat

I wanted to talk about my bad sore throat, but I'm still not feeling that good, sore throat is back but not as bad as the previous one; all i can say is it was hell! Breathing was hell, when air passes through my nostrils down my throat it was like razorblades sliding down, and drinking water was like sandpaper running down the walls, it was torture. I've never had experienced this much pain with a sore throat before. I had a fever too at that time along with a cough and a cold, which turned out to be flu. Yep, the days weren't good to me.

But one thing though came out good, the saving grace; before i got this throat infection, my sister-in-law gave birth to a bouncing baby girl. I am now a proud uncle..^O^ I'll post a picture of my baby niece sometime soon in case anyone wants to see..^^;

Thanks for taking the time to read this nonsense story about me and my sore frickin' throat.

The rates for commissions

Yoohey! Finally i have PAYPAL! :yoohoo:

Actually, the paypal account isn't mine, rather a really good friend of mine agreed to receive payments through his paypal for the meantime until i get my own credit card. I owe him big time for this huge favor, i am thankful that i have a friend i can rely on when i need it. Thank you very much Miko! :happycry:

For the rates, another good friend here in DA, i hope he doesn't mind me name dropping him, gave his estimate on how much i should charge for commissions. i pasted his message below for reference. I am open for negotiations, if you believe that the prices suggested are way too high. e-mail for a faster reply.


Here is ThorsAssassin message regarding the rates:

Well i think your art is superb, i really do. Sorry for the late response but i am usually off for weekends to be with the family. Also after looking through your work, here is what i would charge if i were you:

Lineart (simple figure no background*) - $40
Lineart (Single figure detailed background*) - $50-$75 depending on complexity
*additional characters $20

Colored Portrait (single character no background) - $65
Colored Portrait (single figure detailed background) - $100
Full colored piece with full colored background and 2 characters - $150-$200 depending on complexity

Of course this varies with everything the client may want but if i were able to still commission art, that's what i would be willing to pay for your work.

Many thanks for viewing. ^^;

Congrats on being an uncle (and the temp Paypal setup too)!

Might bug you for album cover art sometime, whenever my friend and I record something we deem worthy of leaving a studio.
