PE: Pricing Your Commissions
Art In Professions
Hello everyone,
Today I'll be discussing how to price your commissions since it's a question that comes up quite often.
If you're an artist who sells commissions you're probably all too familiar with the conundrum of trying to decide what price tags to attach to your art. Perhaps you're an artist who would like to sell commissions but have been so unsure about setting up prices that you've simply avoided selling commissions completely. No matter what, this article will help you price your art in a way that can make both you and your clients happy.
First and foremost it is important to remember that doing commissions for others is considered a job/work/employment, regardless of how much you enjoy the process or how serious you are about your art.
This is your time and energy that is going into creating the art and that time and energy is precious, even if you are still young, feel your art isn't that great, or only create art as a hobby.
Once you are able to look at c

Morphicelus's Profile Picture
Arianna Brooklyn R. J. Goldfin
Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
United States
My name is Gina Kay Dennis. Just Gina, not Georgina or Regina. My first name is related to regality, being royal; my middle name simply means kindness (and this is a name I received in honor of my maternal aunt); Dennis is the Anglicized version of Dionysos, and is taken simply to mean 'wise discerner'. Do I think I live up to my name? In some respects yes, in some no, but I'm enough of a fan of it that I refused to take my husband's (which is a rarity around here).

I am also called:
Gina the Hat (at work...they apparently think I'm a gangster)
The Boulderess (by my husband, for a variety of reasons)
Meatball (by some of my's not because I'm meatball's because once at a potluck I greedily filled my plate with meatballs and it collapsed, sending them everywhere.) :cries:

I am a 30 something aspiring graphic novelist who is trying hard to continue to exercise and develop my creative talents, when life allows. I'm living the new American Dream (renting a house and leasing everything because of loads of student debt) with my husband, daughter (3), dog (12), and various plants.

I'm a classically trained artist (though I never graduated with a bachelors degree because I couldn't figure out what I wanted to be when I grew up :/ my associates, though!). Currently I mainly do fanart, but I'm going to be churning out comics here soon...I said that like they wouldn't be fanart...fancomics, I'll be churning out fancomics. :heart:

No need to thank me for llamas! Just give me one back and/or take a look at my stuff. Either would be thanks enough. ^_^

I'm still here...

Journal Entry: Sun Jul 17, 2016, 9:49 PM
Hello everyone. Sorry that I've sorta kinda disappeared from DA. I didn't mean to do it, otherwise I would have mentioned going on hiatus, but just kind of got away from me and I fell into a depression, and while I have more or less clawed my way back out into normalcy I'm being cautious as things are still rather stressful at the moment.

Basically, a family emergency that's been going on for the last few months involving my nieces has occupied all of my time, what with traveling and classes and government agencies to deal my shift at work was changed temporarily so I could cover a coworker doing a job that I had intentionally moved on from because it was stressful as hell (but at least I'm paid far better now) but she's returning the week after next so things should be getting better. Plus the family situation should be more or less resolved before August 1st. I guess what I'm trying to say is I will soon be in a better place so I can start doing art again. I miss it terribly, but trying to do so many things with what little time I have wasn't good for me, at all. If I had my way, I wouldn't have to have a job outside the home and could instead focus entirely on my art/comics/writing, but part of being an adult is dealing with annoying situations so that you and your family can be safe and more or less happy...

But anyway, I just wanted to let you all know that I'm still here and working to get back where I was. If I owe you art, check below to see if I have you listed. If not just send me a note. I'm going to try to clear out my back log of work before Dragon*Con at the very least. Sorry for the delays.

TheWickedWordsmith - Character Scene. In process
Amarantheans - Book cover design. Not started
Bat-Clawz - Art of Yukio and Whats his face (I'm just kidding I know who it is). Please let me know if for some reason you want a different scene now. Not started
KiritoPhantomhive - Art of a character from the manga Lan Chi (a specific side story). Not started.

I'm really sorry that my mental health got in the way of me progressing as an artist, and that life continues to frustrate me, but I am determined to keep working at it this time. I hope there's no hard feelings between us. Llama Emoji 33 (Down or Depressed) [V2]
