Commissions are still closed for the time being. Well, this gives me the opportunity to think about restructuring my commissions, what I can do and what I will no longer or even outright refuse to do anymore. Commissions which I will not do anymore, but is still currently on-going right now, I will still try to finish it, but don't expect me to do those commissions anymore.
Here's a list of commissions I won't do anymore in the future:
- Comics (I never realized how stressful this can be.)
- Cub art (I just don't want to get myself in trouble for drawing under-aged toddlers, even if it's G-rated.)
- Commissions that involve me having to design a character from scratch on the spot.
I shouldn't really whine about Malaysia's current economical crisis... And frankly, this shouldn't even relate to this journal entry. Just so you know, recently, the Malaysian ringgit currency plummeted really hard, even worse than it had been, causing quite an economical panic in my country. Here's a news article about it: www.thestar.com.my/Business/Bu…
However, my parents told me to see this as an opportunity rather than something to weep over, since that means I will gain even more money than usual when I withdraw my PayPal money into my bank. Currently, commissions and YouTube ad revenues are two of my only primary source of incomes until I seek out to get a job.
Okay, back to our current journal entry. I've been thinking about doing this, but after seeing what other commissioned artists do, I decided to focus extensively on one type of commission: the full-body commission. The commission will resemble something like this:
I will draw a cell-shaded full-body drawing of one of your characters, or up to two characters max. Original characters only; this even includes OCs derived from copyrighted characters (such as a Pokésona). It'll be in 800x800 resolution (but if you want, I can privately send you a bigger version of the pic so you can print it in high-quality), and the background will be transparent. It will also be G-rated; no hardcore or fetishy stuff.
Pricing will be the same as a "normal" cell-shaded one-character commission: $20, or $30 if two characters. Sorry, I don't accept dA points as a form of payment.
I'm still debating with the number of slots I can open, but considering the simplicity of this commission type, I might plan to open as large as 10 slots just for this commission type alone.
I might even make it separate from my usual "normal" commission type; due to the amount of stress I faced, I plan to reduce that back to just 3 slots. Commissions will be closed from the very moment all slots are filled, and I will not reopen them again until I get to finish everyone's commissions, or that person decided to cancel his/her commission.
And finally, due to a bad experience I had with a commissioner, I'll need to add one more rule: DO NOT PAY ME YET
until the moment I finished your commission. That way, if there's a fallout between me and the commissioner and he/she wants to cancel the commission, at least all is not lost because a payment has not been made yet. Having to refund is the last thing I want to do. To avoid commissioners simply snatching the pic and running off without paying, you will be shown a thumbnail of the finished work; after you've paid, I'll submit the full pic in my gallery.
I'll let everyone know should I decide to reopen commissions in the future, once I finish everyone's current commissions.
