Commissions? Pricing?
«: May 28, 2009, 08:04:08 PM»
Yes, well, I've been wanting some opinions on this for a while now, and I hope this is the right place to ask for some. c:

Y'see, I've been wanting to try my hand at small, cheap commissions for some time, but I don't know if my art is really "good enough."

So, do you guys think you could tell me if I should try selling some, give me some critiques, or help me with pricing? Any help at all would be greatly appreciated. n_n

For the icons, less than one GD -- something in SD or CD. They're cute, but a little too pillowy and detail-lacking for my taste.

Small commissions, maybe 1 GD or so. Again, very pillowy and airbrushed, and the black one ...you can't really tell what's going on at the end of its muzzle because of how you shaded it. I think you need to work on shading and color theory a bit -- shadows aren't just darker versions of the same exact color, for example, and right now it looks like that's exactly what you're doing. Don't know much about ferals in general so I guess I can't help you there.

Thank you for the advice/crits. n_n
I know what you mean about the shading... Never was my strong point, but I guess nothing but a lot of practice will help me improve!

But yes, thanks again. c:

I think I'll go work on shading some more and see if I can improve.~
