Aye. ;) So don't fret - there will be more art from me in your in-trays! Eventually.
In the meantime, check out my clubs/groups: http://windinmysails.deviantart.com/journal/The-Clubs-Groups-That-I-Run-242709776
CURRENTLY ACCEPTING COMMISSIONS.
Examples: Caricature/cartoon/fantasy portraits of pets (sample), original creatures & characters, characters from games/films/books/etc., logos/symbols - and much more; ask and I shall [most likely] oblige.
I am proficient in traditional as well as digital media.
For more information, contact me via note or e-mail. Prices are reasonable and negotiable.
I'm going to start accepting commissions, because I want to make art my profession. (I'm aiming for "straightforward" here, but I do realise it might instead come across as "naive".)
Now, I haven't really got any experience with commissions on a professional level, so I thought it would be a good idea to ask for help:
How should I go about it?
Any help/tips that any of you might have to offer would be greatly appreciated. :)
