NOW OPENING COMMISSIONS. PLEASE. CHEAP. ouo

Journal Entry: Mon Dec 10, 2012, 6:00 PM
  • Mood: Anguish
  • Watching: The Polar Express
  • Playing: Banjo-Tooie


EDIT: Changed the prices. I'm undergoing myself. >.>
Also, my Paypal account isn't functioning right now, so the only payment I'll take is the 'ole snail mail! ;w;
.
.
.
.

-SKIP THIS AREA IF YOU ARE HERE JUST FOR PRICES-


I can explain.



To all of those who had commissioned me in the past with points, I'm incredibly sorry. Words can't describe how bad I feel.

So for this I'm returning all of the points anyone has given me for this purpose.
If I owe you, please let me know! ;w;

- END OF SKIPPED AREA. -
.
.

SO. ONTO THE TITLE.

I know I'm not the best artist, but I have to try doing this, because I have no other way in raising money.
Our family is extremely short this month, reason being is because our water heater broke a few days ago...

..our water heater.

$370.00 is quite a bit out of our budget, and it really hurt us.

This is my only chance to be able to go grocery shopping. XD
and I'm not kidding. ono

I've decided to open up money commissions.

OKAY. I know I probably won't get any whatsoever, but it's worth a measly try.
I'm this desperate. ;_;
I'm also glad the money isn't meant to go for Christmas shopping or anything.

So yeah, that's it really...
I have 6 slots!
1) :iconxaolin26: Scenery: Jet (FC) - fav.me/d5e3x38

3) :iconezioauditore97: Scenery: Nicole
4) :iconrainbowkitty777: Color-Me: Tails (Young Luke) - images.wikia.com/aceattorney/i…
5) OPEN

I will open a new set when this is full.. or if it even gets that far.

Yo, Sliv, quick question: what can you not do? (as in subjects, ie humans, antros, etc.)

I was thinking of either Tails in Young Luke's clothes (but still wearing his original shoes and gloves) (Here's a reference to Young Luke: [link]) writing madly in a notebook, or Sonic in Professor Layton's hat, trying to do a face expression that makes him look like a gentleman. Either would be Color-Me drawings. CX
I'll let you choose which one of the two you want to do.

Hm, want me to do both? Or just one?
I'll go with the Tails one if you want me to choose. XD

It's just a handshake. Someone asks you to draw something for them, and they give you points/money for it. That's all.
Just like a request, but paid. c:

I'd love to help, but I'm saving up for something, and I'm still not sure how Paypal works.

Since people don't tend to be able to make much money off of dA, could I suggest a few money-making tips so that you could get more money from more than one place?

I'm really sorry about your financial situation, that's really bad to hear. I hope you make enough to support your family.

You're so welcome!

Well, if you have a YouTube channel then if you allow Ads on your videos, you can get a dollar per thousand views on the videos that have the ads on them.

Then, while it's kinda difficult to get money off of dA(not saying that it's the case for everyone, BUT, it is for a lot of us), there are some great websites made specifically for selling your art. If you want to go take a look into that.

Then there's a website called hitRECord [link], that's specially made for many people to collab to create peices of art, literature, ect. Say, if a writer needs an illustrator, then they can put up their peice saying that they need some illustrations for their book. Then, people can go and contribute to that collaboration, adding their own illustrations. Then hitRECord goes and publishes the work, and then all who participated get part of the profits!

I could look up more for you, if you want. I really wouldn't mind!

I'll certainly help you raise money for you and your family! If I may? :la:
I'll send you a note later on what I want commissioned. Though, I don't want to pile up on the other projects you have to do . . .

If I may add a few suggestions in terms of selling your artwork: Maybe you should charge more for some of your higher quality pictures? I'm trying to start selling some of my artwork, and I've learned a lot about advertising. Let's take your scenery pictures, for example. Pictures that high of quality are usually $20 - $30 a picture (it could be more . . . :ohnoes:). I understand if you want to make your artwork affordable to everyone, but don't undersell yourself. Maybe charge $10 for scenery pictures, or $15.
Another way to advertize your artwork is to create a facebook page (not a login account, but something like an advertisement page.) If you're also sending out hard copies by mail, you have to take into account the cost of ink and the cost of paper. What kind of paper do you use to print?

Hope this helps. :)

Wow, why thank you very much! I'll be looking forward to it!
Usually, whenever I put up any kind of commissions, people run away because of such big numbers. I hate to undersell and rip off myself, but I probably wouldn't get anywhere if I raised the prices. People are so picky now. :'c

I might do that though. ^^

Oh, yeah, Facebook! Never thought of that! Thanks!

Tsk.. I shouldn't have spent the money on that card for a PM ;-; . I wish I could redeem points. I would totally commission you and I wish there was a way I could help you Silv. Is there any way I could? You could post it in DA forms. Alot of the public look there and not just the watchers you have :iconsympathyplz:
