I tend to spend a lot of time on commissions, so hourly rate doesn't work out that good.. but then, i'm only doing it for a hobby, so it's not that bad..
The price on DA seems to vary heaps, so I don't know what's the right thing to do.. I thought I went a little on the cheaper side, but then I had some people who say that my price's too expensive too..
If you open for commissions, you won't get short of people asking though.. you're really good.
Thanks. People keep on asking me do I do commissions but I'm very reluctant. I somehow find it stressing to paint for others, you know, there's a certain responsibility. That's why I could never be a professional artist.
Oh how can someone say your prices are too expensive?! Most of the artists won't do a monochrome sketch for less than $80. Actually often when someone asks me for a commission, I send them to you. I hope you don't mind.
It could be stressful, but then i like how it kinda forces me to do certain things that I would otherwise not try.. it's a good way to improve myself that way.. I know what you mean though, some things are just not fun doing.. but then again, you can always be selective, and only accept the commissions that you like to do.. I know that people won't be disappointed when they commission you.. your art is amazing.
Ah. I see now you got yours from sideshow collectibles; I ordered mine from Comics Infinity. Just sent them a message on Facebook and they said they're expecting their shipments to come in sometime next week ^^ So as long as I receive him in a month or two I'll be floating-on-clouds happy >w< <3
I see my future... Terrified to take him out of the box, yet unable to stand the torment of not being able to touch him ; ^;
I thought I'll be keeping him in the box, too, but it kind of didn't feel right to keep him in the box because then I couldn't properly display him or anything. So now he's gathering dust on my shelf. But at least he's fully assembled and pretty, and kingly.
Yeah I know, they're really expensive. With the shipping cost and taxes I spent more than $300 on him. Not that I regret it, but I do realize it's a bit crazy. But as a fan couldn't afford not to buy this. Bless my mom who gave me the money.
