Help with prices, and crit? c:
«: May 09, 2010, 12:44:32 AM»
Here are my two most recent portraits:
-update-

I currently take $5 paypal, GD, or a portspace. What should I ask for, or is that good? What should I work on improving? Thank you. <3
Now?

I think that's a good price.

Something I've noticed a lot about most of the portraits you've made is they all have very similar faces. I would recommend you try drawing them at different angles.

From what I can see, your anatomy doesn't seem to have too many problems. Just work with different positions/expressions.

Alright, thank you. I'm going to try different poses, because you're right. Mine all do, really look similar. c:

Don't be afraid to put dark colors right up against the lightest colors in your ports. It'll really give you some pop. :) You may also be able to get a bit more detail in if you do bust-up, instead of trying to fit the whole body in (of course, depending on what the commissioner wants.)

drop the white-ish outline around them and you're set.

They have some tiny hands. Your hand is as big as your face, and theirs appear to be half that size. The one on the right also has pretty awkward-looking shoulders.

$5 paypal/gd is a good price though, I think as soon as you start refining them you can start charging more, but these days port art is either ridiculously cheap or ridiculously expensive. :p

Looks like you're a lot better at humans than furres, too. Maybe work on a few different types of animals? For me it's the exact opposite. I recently started a comic with, god forbid, mainly human characters.
Personally, I suck at the human face without a reference, but I could pound out the anthros all day long. We've all heard it... practice makes perfect. (what haunting words XP)
