Bunny Emoji-88 (Hello) [V5]  my dedicated fans, it's me, :iconangel-rki: giving an update on what's going to happen for the next upcoming weeks. Enjoying the Fireworks - NaNoEmo Day 7 

As you all know, i been known by many of you to keep the "Egyptian Theme" throughout my gallery and page but it won't last very long. I am changing my whole DA account to a more broader look that fits my personality and so that i could open out to more things other than Egyptian artwork and writing.

But do not discourage about this change due to the fact that i will still continue to write and finish Queen of Serpents for you all to read. If you still want me to continue to write after this novel then I would love for you to all send me a comment but if not then i will move on to a new story instead. OMG MOAR POEMS! 

You all may have notice as well that i changed my gallery and i decided to put my writing in one folder for all of you to find. The reason is i'm trying to clean my gallery for upcoming art projects i will be working on throughout the months. Currently I haven't been able to draw due to trying to find my own style of art and once I do find it, I will start drawing again. Da Vinci Fella (Artists) 

However, I won't be able to do all of this in just one week due to the fact that I am struggling to move out, I would love it if you could donate to me to help me cause to leave my abusive house hold that has causing me to suffer. Any little offering would help me greatly and even if you can't donate for me a word of advice or comment would do just as fine. kaomoji set 2 43/67 STITCH TRISTE 

That is all for today. Thank You Hearts Sign for all your support and efforts to keep me motivated in doing the work I do for all of you and Wish me luck!

no problem. I had to watch you knowing how much an amazing writer you are in giving advice to people. 
I was also planing to do commissions with my artwork and i would love to have someone like you to
help me with that if you can. 

Overall i can't wait to see your artworks and other tips and tricks you can give to everyone in the DA 
community. Best of Luck! kaomoji set 2 18/67

I would be glad to help.

First, I think this fav.me/d7gitcq is your strongest image. I think keeping to this style would be your best bet. It is the cleanest and most marketable one. 

A few things I would suggest;

1: You are pretty limited in what you do. Try to include more things. Most everything was Egyptian in theme and that only appeals to a VERY select few, please keep doing it, but also stretch out and do more things. Unless the buyer is looking for that, you will not be picked. So try to add new things. Also work on anatomy. There are times you do well and times you lose the form. Spend some time doing life drawings and really work to understand the figure. This will help SO much!

2: Study backgrounds. You have a lack of backgrounds and a lot of buyers are going to want that. If you can offer it, you stand out a LOT from all the other commission artists. The more you can stand out, the better.

3: I think keeping to the flat colors works best right now. But I would suggest practicing working with shadows and highlights more. Right now, your colors lack a sense of form, which flattens your work. Stick with flats for commissions right now.

4: I would also suggest reworking your Deviant art gallery. There is a lot of stuff like writing, drawings, still life, etc. Decide on the one look you want, and JUST show that. Too many different looks can confuse or just scare away a customer. At the very least move the writing and still life off the main screen and to their own folders.

All that said, I do think you are in the place you can do begin to offer commissions. But realize, you are up against a LOT of other artists so you must put in the work to get better and better. I believe you can do that. I can already see growth in your DA work. So work on the things I suggested, grow, and you will see more and more wanting your work.

But remember, as it stands now, you are going after a very limited market. So look for fans. Join ANY art groups here and on Facebook (if you are there.) that focus on things you like to draw and share your work. Comment on other's work. The more visible you become in the community, the more people will buy. So really find them and become a member. 


As for pricing, I would say work no less than $10 for something VERY simple, like a black and white head sketch. And max out at around $40 for a full body full color illustration. I think if you set character sheets for fan characters at$20 for a front, side.

But one thing to keep in mind, no matter what, sells will be hard to come by. There are a lot of people who want art for free or almost nothing. So stand firm at your prices. If after a LONG time you get no sales, then do a special 30% off sale to get some extra business. But keep your prices there most of the time. Do NOT do free or super cheap art. The moment you do, no one will pay anymore.

Then after time, when you have a few loyal commissioners, and you have worked on some of my suggestions, you can begin to raise your prices. Maybe 10-15% at a time.

I hope that helps and best of luck! 
Dwayne
