>>1318796*notegod damn it
One thing I don't usually see mentioned anywhere: how big are most digital commissions, dimension-wise? I'd imagine it's pretty variable depending on the artist, but is there a common range of sizes?I've done a few that were around postcard sized (approx 4"x6" @300dpi, or 1200 x 1800px), but would it be preferable to go larger, to 8.5"x11" @300dpi (2550 x 3300px)?
>>1318934I usually go pretty big (around 2000x2500 or 2500x3000). Clients haven't had a preference so far that I've known of, but I figured a bigger resolution image might be better to have.
>>1317773More examples can be found at http://awfulfawaffle.deviantart.comContact me on my Deviantart notes or email@example.com
>>1317773Special sale until 4/17, PAY WHAT YOU WANT!
>>1317773Single colour backgrounds or simple ones (shown in my commission sheet) are included.Also note that very simple commissions may be discounted, for example, some chibis.
First time ordering a commison hereAnd do's and don't's?
>>1319307Be as descriptive as possible about what you want. Be open to the artist's suggestions. Don't give any deadlines, let the artist work on their own time. Don't insist on subjects the artist doesn't like.
>>1317773Still doing buy one get one half off until the end of April
>>1319307DO:Include all pertinent details of your commission; characters involved, what you want them doing, if there's a particular pose or angle you want, etc. The more detailed reference you provide, the better. Of course, most artists don't mind being given free reins to come up with stuff themselves, but if you already know what you want, mention it.Read the artist's commission details to see if they have any subjects they don't want to work with.Ask how long the artist expects to spend on your piece if they don't mention it themselves. DON'T:Try to convince an artist to draw something that's on their "won't draw" list.
>>1319349>>1319370Thanks fellasAs a follow up: What sort of details would be important for the artist to know for the work? Would they need a full outline?
>>1318713Lol, you fucking suck so bad.How does one get so delusional that these elementary school -tier samples should be worth even $10?
>>1319392How does one get so beta faggot to make shitty comments about amateur artists
>>1319384It depends on the specific image, really. If it's a subject that you know the artist knows how to pull off in the way you like, you can usually leave it at "have X and Y doing Z" and end up with a result you'll like. If you're less sure, mention the kinds of things you like about the subject matter or the charm points of the individual characters.If in doubt, more detail will almost never hurt.
>>1319431Thanks for the advice. Now, off to please Slannesh with LEWD sacrifice.
>>1319384giving reference can go beyond just describing your characters, you can find a picture of someone in a pose you like for example and use that as reference. even a screen-cap of something that happens in a video you like
I'll be 100% honest here. Anyone who charges $25 or greater for a sketch is out of their minds. I've seen some free deliveries in drawthreads that I'd pay money for that looks higher quality than some of the art in these commission sheets. Feel free to charge what you want. If people pay for it, then make your money; but just...damn. At the point that I pay $20 or more for a sketch then I might as well draw it on my own. Thats like a full tank of gas right there.Once again, it's your money; pay for it if you want it bad enough
>>1319643i know more well known artists charge more not just based on skill but on how busy they are. I feel like 30ish dollar range for a fully colored nsfw picture is pretty fair... idk
>>1319661Fully colored yes, but for a rough sketch seems kinda like highway robbery
>>1319643When are people going to learn that cost of living, and thus the price people charge for their skills, is relative? Or that price of a product can increase if the demand for it increases?And you saw a high quality free delivery, so what? Do you think it means that person can afford to work for free all the time, or that everyone should be able to match them? Not everyone can afford to spend their skills on a pastime that doesn't pay their bills, and complaining that someone is too expensive for YOU based on YOUR income or location isn't going to persuade them. And if you feel their pricing is too high based on the principle that "sketches shouldn't even be that expensive," go take that rhetoric and apply it to literally any independent field that requires high manhours of labor for a custom product and realize how impractical you're being.
>>13177735$ discount for first three orders
>>1318796>>1318799So furaffinity is the only way to get in contact with you? If correspondence is done by email, why not just include it on your commission sheet?
>>1319400Difference between criticizing shitty artists who want to get paid a certain amount and those who don't.

>>1319900I forgot to post my commission sheet.
>>1319979You won't draw a young trump fucking a young hillary?
>>1317773Shilling If you've got an FA you can check out my more fetishy stuff here.http://www.furaffinity.net/user/dapperdoctor/
>>1317773Hi everybody! i open one color sketch slot ($25 for one character $40 per two) i can draw pretty much anything.If you are interested send me an email to:firstname.lastname@example.org
As someone looking to break into the adult commission game, what are some good price ranges? I was thinking sketch($5), linework($10), flat color($15), complex color($30), and then full paint with bg($50-$100)? Does this seem reasonable?
>>1320185don't forget to charge for extra characters, I don't know if people would agree with me but I think $15 is a reasonable base price for a colored simple sfw piece. Backgrounds are a plus if you can do them, it can be your selling point entirely sometimes, but that really depends on how good you are, maybe?
>>1318934Almost everything i did is 3000X3000 300dpi
>>1319643My sketches start at 15$ and i charge that since i can do them quickly but they come out rather clean and nice looking. You tell me if you think it is worth it?http://kingvego.deviantart.com/art/Commission-Alamea-673137832
>>1319076BTW, it's been a while but I finally got around to finishing up that muscular futa request I got in this thread. Hopefully the anon who requested it will see it, or someone else who likes that kind of stuff.
>>1320640I like your attention to detail. It's extremely good however your artstyle isn't my cup of tea; so no I wouldn't pay for it. I'm sure someone would tho. Keep looking
>>1320640I would call that lineart, not a sketch, sketches are a lot messier.
I've decided that for all the commissioning I do, I should have an OC. Who would be a good artist to help me design a monstergirl?
>>1321588I hate to shill myself, but I love designing monster girlsI even have a fish one for sale
>>1321622Your tumblr only allows messages from people you follow, so what's a good way of getting in contact?
>>1321622So what does the winner get after winning these bids? The character itself? The design? All the information and rights to it? I've never understood this.
>>1321652Not Lilith, but to answer your question, it's essentially rights to intellectual property. It becomes your character who you can then commission other artists to draw without stepping on any toes. A number of artists won't even draw other people's OCs without permission from the original artist / whomever "adopted" it.
>>1321652usually you own the character's design, that is you can have other people draw you things based on that character>>1321588I'm decent enough at designing character's myself e-mail me if interestedinfo here:>>1317841
>>1321650my emailanabeaverhause@gmail>>1321652>>1321657 is basically right. You get the character. They become yours. People buy them because they want RP characters or something.
>>1321696Cool, cool, an email's been sent,
>>1321657>>1321660>>1321696That's...........interesting. I've never thought of it that way. Well, I don't judge. If people have the money for it then I won't stop them. Hopefully they have the art skill or the money (For commissions) to back it up after purchasing said character; otherwise it's meaningless.
>>1321709>>1321696like this person said, a lot of people are RP writers and want a representation of their characters, nothing more nothing less
>>1321372I use a pencil brush for that image and so its not nearly as crisp as it could be. And the reason why i charge more for inked work is that it take more time to ink something then to imply line it with a pencil brush.
Sfw/Nsfw, generally vanilla stuff, but don't be afraid to inquire using the provided email.
I'm drafting out a commission page, but I can't help but feel that I'm underselling myself on the prices here.The sketches will stay the same price if I change everything else though, since they're pretty easy for me to make.
>>1322016Scratch that, maybe the prices are fine, I don't know, but anyway I still want everyone's opinion on my draft
can anyone recommend a good artist to draw a rather sadistic 6-8 page comic strip based in zootopia. Normally I dont do the furry shit, but I'd love to sponsor some cruelty on cute action.
>>1322016What price level will work for you depends on a whole bunch of other factors than just if it looks nice. Try these out and see how it goes.Maybe organize your list of love and hate alphabetically so people can quickly look up how you feel about their specific topic.
>>1322016Underselling not, actually its quite a lot for a first timer, what you need to do is try to grab commissioners and not to scare them off.
>>1319076>>1321156Your paintings have a lot of potential
>>1322353How do you mean? I assume you don't think they're entirely living up to their potential, or you'd just say they were good looking.
>>1322078you'll have beetter luck with that on FA but a 6-8 page comic will set you back a few hundred dollars. I'd say around 400 at best
SO an artist I commissioned from here has gone dark for a few weeks and hasn't responded to anything I've sent them. How long should I wait to chargeback do you guys think?
>>1322847Have you commissioned this person before? Had they been giving out regular WIPs before going silent? Do you know if they've been active elsewhere on the Internet?
>>1322847What's their name? Maybe someone here knows them.
>>1322939They gave me one WIP and a very very very rough sketch when we were hammering out the details and I have not commissioned them before. They don't seem to have much of an internet presence.>>1323065Not gonna name and shame here mostly because I think it's more about being new than trying to fuck me over, plus they still have time to respond before I chargeback. New artists don't need that stigma following them yet IMO since everyone makes mistakes.
>>1323068Dude no if it's been weeks then they're probably fucking you. It does not take that long to respond to an email saying "Sorry, I got busy with real life" or some shit
>>1323150Yeah, it's not like you can't just pay them again if they contact you and go "I'm sorry, I was kidnapped by aliens but I can finish your commission now".Maybe send them an email saying you'll do a chargeback if they don't respond, first.
>>1321156>muscle femaleOoh, I seriously like.
>>1321657That's gotta be the dumbest thing I ever heard. I know it's not the same thing but I've done a lot of designs for people's character, i.e. Being the first to ever create its look. I've seen tons of new commissions using my designs and never once was I included in any conversations.But regardless, what's the big idea about 'intellectual property' it's not as though your Rp character is going to bring fame or money, and if someone did steal it you couldn't do anything about it except complain that someone commissioned more art for you while pretending to be you.
>>1322016>no futa >d.o.a
>>1323233Glad to hear my time wasn't wasted.
Question for drawfags, if you charge per character and got a request for a sex scene where the girl is just riding the guy's dick, does the guy count as a character or a prop? Even if he's faceless and generic?
>>1323261but anon, I'm pure of heart>>1323285I don't know about everyone else, but I personally won't charge for it
>>1323291I think you're afraid of the gay.Just embrace it, it feels sooo goood~
>>1323285Depends on how much work I'd have to do. If all that was visible was his thighs and peepee (like if she was riding him reverse cowgirl and we see it from in front of her), I wouldn't charge full price.
>>1323292>>1322016 here, still technically under construction, so I might be open to discount
>>1323285That's a pretty good question actually, I should probably add something about that to my sheet. Sort of echoing what others have already said, I wouldn't charge extra. I would only charge if it's a fuller view of the character or if they're actively interacting with the other. I guess it just depends on the amount of detail, though I find the idea of charging extra for floating dick kinda funny
>>1323285Ive seen a lot of artists who do both. Ive asked for genrics fucking the girls and since it was the same anyways decided to rework a few pics to be another character.which isn't always easy because I like my pictures to make a sort of sense
>>1323296>>1323298Which artists are you guys?
>>1323311>>1323296 here, I'm >>1319076
>>1322016>hate to draw:>deliberate teleology>teleology: the explanation of phenomena by the purpose they serve rather than by postulated causeshaha what
>>1323285I mean, how much of the guy will i be drawing? If its just a dick, then no it would just be one character. More then a dick though, then im not sure.
>>1323366Depends on the position, really. But generally, it'd just be the basic outline of the guy with no real detail included.
>>1322375I'll give it a try thanks, and yeah I've sunk that much and more into comic strips before
I hate drawing hentai but I'm decent at it
>>1323368that does not sound so bad. here is my commission info.>>1320630
>>1323375this is some good stuff.
>>1323394Thanks I need to build my portfolio again since I've been moving a lot and probably do commission. I needs tha monay
>>1317773I didn't change anything, but now it looks more official
just a couple of commissions i finished recently
>>1323490It looks so much neater. I was having a hard time viewing your previous one. Good work. I hope you get some commissions
>>1317773supermarmalademum.tumblr.com is my art blog
>>1323919>>1323914and some recent work
>>1323914>>1323928wow you're good!
>>1319201Anyplace I can find more of your stuff? Your tumblr doesn't have much.
>>1317773you can pay what you want, usually you get your drawing the same day. if you're interested you can send me a message to my tumblr. I'm as dinklebop2.tumblr.com
>notice that a good amount of artists I commission are from BrazilIs drawing porn some secret skill you Huezillians have?
>>1324353cost of living is lower so drawing as a full time job becomes an option
>>1322361imo some areas need to be given more detail/time. They don't really look complete to me. I've only gotten a few painted commissions myself but they definitely seemed to put more detail into it, or at least the areas that mattered most for these type of things(faces, breasts, and genitals). You know how to draw good dicks though, I'll give you that. Most people can't draw dicks for shit.
>>1324025Yeah, sorry. I'm still working on my tumblr.Anything in particular you are looking for?
>>1324538Yeah, it's a result of being $20 paintings - I don't really have time to iron out all the burrs. I'm not sure if I should up my prices and spend more time on them, or at least advertise my more time-intensive stuff more heavily.
>>1319795I dunno, general paranoia?you can also contact me via my tumblr, limebeatzafterdark.tumblr.com
>>1324938Hey, i did a commission of this character recently.
>>1324938Yeah I figured that might be what it was, which is understandable at $20. Honestly I would just charge more for the higher quality stuff, and set it as an option like "detailed painting" or something on your commission sheet.Out of curiosity what would you price a more polished version of >>1321156 ?
>>1324948Can't say I'm surprised - client seemed like the type who enjoyed having different artists do their own take on his ocs.>>1325024Yeah, I've been thinking the same thing - rough vs polished paintings.I'm not entirely sure about >>1321156 - it's a fairly simple nude figure without a background, so I think around $40 (that is, a $20 price difference, or another hour and a half spent rendering) is as far as I could take it before I really hit the wall of flaws that aren't just a question of time spent. For comparison, >>1324938 was $70.
>>1325078Gotcha. It was $70 because of the background right? That looks like a detailed background so I'm assuming it was a $20 + $50 going by your sheet. Unless I'm reading that wrong.Either way if you decide to make the more detailed stuff official I'd definitely be interested.
>>1325173Your reading sounds about right - that particular image was a case of the client going "I'll pay you fifty bucks to paint this" and then going "I'll pay you twenty bucks to spend some more time on it" when I presented him with the version I'd spent 50 dollars worth of my time on.But yes, the character alone I'd price at $50 (more than a nude character, because she's got a pretty complicated outfit).I'd be happy to paint you something for similar prices - what exactly do you mean by "official"?
>>1325206Oh my bad, sounded like you weren't really sure if you wanted to advertise the full painted stuff yet. I'll shoot you an email or message you through tumblr
>>1325309Nah, I just wasn't sure how to advertise it best.I'd prefer email if it's the same to you.
Just wanted to throw this up because it's been forever since the thread for the Keychain of Creation was put up, or a general webcomic thread.It's by Jack Cayless, used to do Chimneyspeak and R.E.D.D. now working on a side-scrolling Contra styled Visual Novel called Miskatonic.He does "Cute Monster Girl" commissions on occasion, and I thought Marena and Secret qualified. Enjoy!

>>1328891>>1328884I want to comm so hard you right now.
>>1320640someone is selling this drawing on FA, I'm wondering if you know or if it's you
>>1327616Just finished this commission yesterday.Blog here:https://placeholdname.tumblr.com/
>>1317772Just curious but how much extra income do you creative types make from commissioning? Is it worthwhile in the end compared to like some shitty job at Burger King?
>>1330005It is more enjoyable than working retail or food service, but not getting out of the house can do damage to your psyche.You're basically going to be a next level neet, so you should plan some outings every week so you don't get stir-crazy.
>>1330005As for income, it all depends on how much you work. I've made about 2,000 dollars in less than two weeks working most of my waking hours. I'm not even that well known, and if you build up a following/reputation you can charge a lot more and make probably 150% of that.Other times I barely do anything and make a few hundred a month.The trouble with being an artist is that it's very easy to get discouraged and self-loathing over your drawings. You can get too picky and self conscious making it difficult to find motivation. The nice thing about flipping burgers is that you don't have to waste so much mental energy creating a completely original product every time you grill a patty. Menial and repetitive labor can actually be pretty relaxing for people who work creatively. As an artist, I am thinking of picking up a side job just to do stuff like that.The problem with doing art is that you rarely feel finished or satisfied, and I think people crave stability.Just consider what kind of mindset you have. Doing art makes me crave things like going outside, gardening, cooking, raising animals, etc. Be sure to satiate those needs, and don't just think about the money. Take care of yourself mentally, because it's much more satisfying than having extra cash.
>>1330005Somewhere between a couple hundred and several hundred quid a month. I could probably get a lot more work if I advertised myself better.Cost of living is high around here and I'd make a lot more money at any kind of regular part time job, but it lets me decide my own hours and the things I learn drawing ballsacks for people are a lot more relevant to the things I'm actually passionate about doing than the things I'd learn by flipping burgers.
Any artists interesting in helping out with a game project that I have been working on? I had an artist previously who seems to have gone MIA and now I'm at a loss for assets.I have a handful of sketches that need coloring and cleaning from the artist that I could send to help you get an idea of what I am looking for.
>>1330667> send to help you get an idea of what I am looking for.Wouldn't it be easier to just make an imgur album and link it here? Then anyone who's interested could just go check it out.
>>1330676I've never made an imgur album before but thanks for the idea.http://imgur.com/a/1Yi9JBasically some of the sketches are faceless so that I can re use models with different expressions.
>>1330667>>1330681So, is this for a VN or something? Just still images? No sprites? No animations?Honestly these sketches are pretty rough, and a bit too simple to be worth salvaging, in my opinion.As long as you pay your artist and not just promise them "a cut" when you game (possibly) launches, then I don't see a problem.
>>1330773The art was done for free by some anon I met through 4chan, which is why I don't mind that the artist is busy and hasn't been online. Also they are just sketches I intended to get a generous artistic anon to help out coloring, since I am currently using these sketches as temp sprites for the game.The game is a renpy based VN trainer type game. I dont intend to add animations and such. The game is entirely for fun, so the most I promise is a thanks and links to them in the credits on the chance someone else making a game would pay them for art.This isn't some big budget thing, but I have had enough support to motivate me to work on it.
>>1319076Well, just finished this yesterday and I'm not exactly drowning in commissions so I figured I'd post it here to get attention.
>>1320630Sounds interesting. Here is my commission info.
>>1329441Could you link me to it please?
>>1330667Sounds interesting. Here is my commission info.>>1320630
>>1331036Ya, i fucked up
>>1330005I recently got into the commissioning business. I've been doing it for 5 months now. Compared to retail and food service it's far less stressful but unless you have an established web of followers/clients its hard to make a livable wage off of it. If you are just starting out expect to get a side job just to get by. I'd love to be able to do this as my main source of income but it's just not possible at the moment. On an average month, I maybe make an extra 200 dollars. But that's about it.I will say this though if you are looking to increase your artistic skill and speed rapidly commissions will push you in the right direction.
>>1319076>>1330836Commissioned this guy and wanna say that this artist was really easy to work with and delivers quickly. Would definitely recommend.
>>1319201Pic related is what chibis look like in my style.Lineart + Shaded Colors or Flat Colors are $10Extra character is $3
Anybody up for drawing some characters from the Bunnicula cartoon? Preferably the human characters like Mina.
>>1331035https://www.furaffinity.net/view/23220880/saw it looking for adoptables
>>1330005>>1318641I make a little under $300 every month from commissions. Ive been considering creating a RedBubble shop to bring in a little more. Or even a part time job to do with art on the side. Its either that or raise my prices, which honestly im planning on doing in my next commission sheet.I hardly get any sleep because i spend what little free time I have not at school working on art. And im very addicted to small details so that cuts into it too.Art is not easy. Be a security guard instead.

I have a question to all Artists here:how much do you charge for only one character doing different poses in the same pic?pic related.
>>1323928That was you? I was just fapping to that on rule34.It's amazing.
>>1333158every pose basically counts as an extra character
>>1333158>>1318641I actually have a deal for that on my commission sheet. $35
>>1317841you should charge more for colored piecesyou are a good colorist
>>1319076How are you at painting smooth latex?
>>1323928Do you have like a line-art version of that from before you rendered it or any WIP images?Wondering what it looks like at different tiers.

>>1333711'Fraid not.There's this one, but it's pretty old and she's just athletic, rather than a total musclegirl.I am working on a shaded line art muscle lady for a client, but I can't really show it off until it's done and paid for, which might take a few days.
>>1333704That's actually pretty damn good.
>>1333731Cool. I look forward to seeing it.
>>1333737Thanks!>>1333740I probably shouldn't spam these threads with everything I do, but I'll make sure to put it up on my tumblr so you won't miss it. Should be going up before the end of the week.
Who's fast here?
>>1333690But I already charge extra for NSFW
>>1333763How fast is fast?
>>1333770few hours for a little sketch?
>>1317772>that feel when you account for commissions in your monthly budget nowI blame these threads and my lack of self control
>>1329867washttps://placeholdname.tumblr.com/post/159379565795a commission? I'd love to commission you for a page like that
>>1333774I can do a sketch in under an hour depending on what it is
>>1319094Newest piece. I'll keep the sale going until next thread.
>>1333763I most of the time get my sketch commissions done within 24 hours.>>1320630
>>1317773Had to keep it sfw, but can do lewds and shit. See my tumblr for more references.
>>1330005average 2k/mo. I don't do it fulltime.I don't even do too much porn if at all, people end up asking for other stuff like refs, artistic nudes.>>1330028Burnout is too real. Take care of yourself!
Anyone have recommendations of who I should try to get a commission from?I want to commission some fire emblem pictures, but I really don't know who to contact.
>>1334527This guy >>1334215
>>1320038url to where we can see that delicious image uncensored?/aco/ really need to change their rules or /acol/ needs to open
>>1334527Well, what kind of criteria are you judging by? I doubt there's anyone in this thread who'd balk at drawing FE stuff.I mean, I like drawing fantasy outfits and such and I feel like I have decent prices for the quality and speed of my output, but every other artist in the thread would probably say the same if you asked them so that's really not grounds for a recommendation.
anyone know anyone who does animations? or anyone here do animations?
>>1334527Well, of course, I am going to recommend myself.>>1327616
>>1334527 #Current favorite who I'm pretty sure is open is Dracounreformed.tumblr.com . I have a long list of recommended artists, but for animus and cratoon grill, Draco takes the cake. If you want extra options, I also suggest: Orangeorangy.tumblr.com is super friendly, affrodable, fast, and probably open, but I find his anatomy kind of boxy. Mini-wa.tumblr.com will be open saturday, and is pretty damned animu. They're doing a new coloring technique, so I don't know what color turnaround will be, but sketches are very fast.>>1334810Juicydemon.tumblr.com just started monetizing animations, recently, and may or may not be offering deals as they're still nascent on the scene. The previously referred to Draco also has started fiddling in animation, but I don't think is selling, yet.
>>1317773I'm throwing my hat into the ring.RodMahogany@gmail.com
Not that guy above but are there any recommendations for commissions from artists who don't post here. I'd trust a recommendation more if it came from someone who wasn't the artist themselves or someone who is shilling for their discord buddy.
>>1335084your style is really interesting and expressive, but it doesn't really lend itself well to porn. it'd be great for a webcomic or something; it doesn't rly have the soft edges or the elegance that good porn art kinda calls for
>artist doesn't have a list of stuff they would or wouldn't do>"just email me" and so >send email with my disgusting fetish with no hope>they are actually up for it
>>1336215Thanks for the feedback. I hadn't thought about the style of illustration in that context, but it makes sense. Hopefully someone out there has "big cartoon lines" on their list of turn-ons.>>1336327I got your back. Probably. It isn't missionary position, is it?> RodMahogany@gmail
>>1336194If you want an artist that doesnt work here why are you even here? Fuck off shit face
been off the thread a while now, but I write a crapload of commission stories, got most of a novel done, and got a Patreon going for fun smutty fiction. some freebie stuff on the Patreon and tons of it on the my story blogluffy316.blogspot.compatreon.com/sandcastles
>>1336327>Artist has drawn no end of weird and disgusting fetish-related pics>Enquire about them drawing some of your own fetishes>They get grossed out and say "I wouldn't feel comfortable doing that"
>>1336778How many words would a standard $60 new customer story be?
>>1336327>>1336780Speaking of disgusting fetishes, where can I find a good artist to do a few comic pages for a futa on shota son theme? I've got the money, but no takers :c>>1336778Speaking of which, how much would a story with this theme cost for 5 pages?
>>1336840I'll leave the quality judgement to you, but I'm happy to draw anything you can come up with.Comics vary a lot so I don't want to give a definite price without reading the script first, but at the low end I'd ask about $30 per page for BW line art.>>1319076
>>1336778>"wouldn't neat more than a handful"Did you mean to type "need"? Other than that, great caption!
>>1334810Guess it depends what you mean by animations. That can be pretty broad in terms of what you are looking for and how much you are willing to spend.
>>1336759I sincerely hope you understand that there are two parties involved in a commission, the commissioner and the artist. This thread is for both types of people, and I was asking other people who commission artists for recommendations. I hope that answered your question, you fucking moron.
Contact e-mail: Crapfish22@gmail.comI have no tumblr, deleted it a while ago but you can look up my name in e-hentai and you'll find a gallery with part of my sketches and "artwork"I charge 8 bucks per character, no secret charges or anything, just 8 bucks. Paypal oinly.The character will be fully colored but no colored background since well, I'm just a cheap porn artist and I don't like to render so I keep it cartoony.I'm most focused on size fetishes such as increase in certain body parts and stuff.I don't draw lolis, shota, furries.I sometimes draw bizarre things are okay but I mostly would draw them for the lulz not
>>1336840>I've got the money, but no takers :cHow much money? Comics take a lot of effort for anything decently drawn, including backgrounds, perspective drawing, composition, and expressive poses.I'd say you're looking at at least 150+ per page.
>>1333703The thing is that I don't do line art for a fully colored piece. I go from sketch to rendering in that case. If I was doing a flat color or a lineart commission, then I do lines like I do in my example.
>>1338412I charge 50 per page, full colored20 in black n white
>>1336840Give me a week to clear some stuff up and I'll be happy to indulge.
Okay, I've got a question for artists/commissioners. I'm thinking on opening commissions, /d/ fetishes will probably be costing a bit extra. (not more than 10% if it's in the 'maybe' list tier). Would you consider this a good business practice? There's not much I wouldn't draw, but I was thinking about it as I was going to do a sample with something in that nature [spoiler] An amputee, but for me I think it isn't that outlandish compared to what I've seen. [/spoiler] How do you decide on prizes along fetishes? Or do you ask for discretion if it's a thing youd rather not be associated with (loli/shota coming to mind?)
>>1338797Don't draw anything you don't like drawing, since you don't know what exactly is what excites you of a /d/ fetish the drawing can come out very lacklusting and tastless
>>1338797Does it take more time and effort than vanilla stuff? Is it less use to you since you can't use it to catch the interest of other potential clients?It seems like there's a pretty logical argument to be made for having higher prices on fetish stuff. As for how high to price it, well, go as high as you can while still making as much money as you want. It's gonna take some experimentation.And yeah, it's definitely a good idea to keep quiet about certain things. At the very least, have any fetish galleries off of your main site.>>1338804Eh, that's not my experience. I draw lots of things that do nothing for me, like rape or scat or pedophilia. I haven't had any complaints so far, and my fetish clients keep coming back for more.
>>1338645I expected as much but I very much appreciate seeing this WIP. I really love that Mika.
>>1333158Snoopcrow here. >>1334215$36
Anyone running specials on 20 headshots?
>>1339809only heads? I would probably charge 40 in total
Anyone here can draw some T H I C C girls? Examples encouraged
>>1339959That's not bad, but I wanted something more on the heavyset side instead of just big ass and tits
>>1339997You're not looking for thicc, you're looking for fat.
what am I supposed to write in "won't draw"I feel like the only thing I'm really adverse to is... diapers, and that's it. I'll draw literally anything else, scat, inflation, lolis/shotas, furry, gore, whatever, just not diapers. But if I put that by itself it'll look weird.
>>1340304>But if I put that by itself it'll look weird.IMO you're overthinking that. Literally nobody will care if you're disgusted by one fetish or three.If it really is a problem, then maybe mention that you reserve the right to refuse any commission you don't want to do?Or you could mention that you won't draw more than 5 corrections of a single image after finishing it.Or just mention fetish that would force you to do extra work: for example to draw feral you would have to do some research about animal anatomy.
>>1317773I'm on tumblr as dinklebop2.tumblr.com. you can pay what you want. you get your drawing the same day
>>1340560Got any non-Steven Universe drawings?
>>1340659a few . and a bunch of sfw personal work. people usually asks for SU stuff
>>1340663Is it just me, or are those arms ridiculously long?Also I'd recommend branching out a bit from SU if you're interested in commissions. They're definitely not the most attractive designs.
>>1340779i was following the model. i don't care about the show anymore. is what I'm asked to to do. I'm just saving for a laptop
>>1340779>>1340800ok, that sounded rude. sorry. drawing porn and fanart is fun but not what i usually do. my tumblr started as an archive for requests, later people started to ask if i did commissions so i gave it a try.
>>1340560please learn to use references
>>1341097can you be more specific?
>>1338794Wait which person are you? an artist or writer?
>>1341125don't fear to overlap figures to give them their actual perspective, Yeah, it looks odd at first but you eventually get ithere tutorial:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yqxPHew5bGQ
>>1341255oh. I'm gonna be honest. with the anonymous requests i intentionally avoid doing elaborated things. that's mostly what's on my blog. but i don't have too much problem with perspective. it just takes time. I've done like 5? requests and the people usually asked for specific things. poses and all thatbut yeah, I'll keep it in mind.
>>1340989Hey, it didn't sound rude, don't worry about it.It's just that commissioning artists that only seem to draw one thing's a gamble.
>>1339941>>1318641I can do these colored sketch pages for $25
>>1317773Openin commissions again
>>1341937Do you have an example of your animated loops?
>>1341938Yeah most of my stuff is on insufferablecrap.tumblr.com and my nsfw stuff is on insufferablensfw.tumblr.com
>>1317841I never thought an artist would put my OC in their ref sheet.
Would anyone consider drawing porn of a real person? She's not a celebrity, just some model, but I really wanna see lewd pics of her.
>>1342022yeah, I like to update my sheet with newer drawings
>>1341972do you have any stuff you won't do? Ex. futa, furry, loli/shota, etc.
>>1342570what the fuck does "ladies get priority" mean?
>>1342251I would have no problem with it.>>1320630
>>1317773 Basic wont's because im a simple lass :No scat/pee/blood and gore/ fetishes like hyper/inflation/political/vomitWill draws:Is it not in my wonts? If its not TOO out there im probably down just shoot me an email and ask.
>>1342884Im pretty cool with futa and the like. Just ask specifics really. I know im just not cool with loli or shota, scat, watersports, vore, inflation.
>>1339997You want fats/chubbies
i draw extremely slowly and have a backlog of stuff to get throughHow long can people wait before I should inform them of what's going on?
>>1344875Depends on what you told them in the first place and if you splurged the money already if it was paid up front.
>>1344875According to professional artists: commissioners can wait even 6 months to get the final image.Pic related is an industry standard.
>>1344875As long as you keep them up to speed on what's going on, most people aren't going to mind that much (especially if they haven't spent that much money.) Hell, even if you do every commission's sketch, then every lineart, then every color, etc., at least you'll have something to show every person.The worst thing you can do is just say nothing, because that makes people think you're either lazy or incompetent or you don't care about their commission. Update people every couple weeks at most.
>>1344875I think if you're delayed by more than a week compared to the time you told them, you should let them know.If you haven't given them a time frame, just let them contact you if they get worried. If someone contacts you, answer them straight away.
>>1342888It's the "no male centric" rule essentially. Pretty much means the lady gets most of the space and the dude is like barely present
>>1330798>I promise is a thanks and links to them in the credits on the chance someone else making a game would pay them for art.So you have nothing to pay the artist?
>>1339997What about something like this?
>>1344980yes but it's not a must. I turn in commission within days, for me it really depends on how fast the client responds, and how much changes they ask for, if any.
>>1344875why the fuck do artist do this?close commissions until the backlog is almost done then re-open, it's that simple. why take someones money and make them wait a month?
>>1345219Out of curiosity, how do you feel about artists that tell people they have a month-long queue, make them wait a month and then take their money?
>>1345276you know paypal has a partial payment option? you could send out an invoice and have a minimum amount to be paid, this way you can get a deposit and people who have to wait a month wont back out. And you also save their spot that way without getting paid in full, then having to complete the work when you've already spent the money.
>>1345276If they tell them then it's no problem. I would never keep a queue that long in the first place but there's no issue so long as the commissioner knows what he's getting into.
>>1345378Is there a reason to do this, though? Don't you have to pay a fee to invoice people on Paypal? Won't skipping it save you a dollar or two?
>>1345421well paypal is tough now on how you get paid for things, they also don't allow you to sell porn so you have to word it as just artwork. Also, past a certain amount you HAVE to pay taxes on it, so yeah sending invoices can save you a lot of grief later on
>>firstname.lastname@example.orgDoing full colred drawing (one character) for 8USDSpeciality: Huge breast and huge dicksNo-nos: Anything loli/shota, furrys and anything referring to defecation or bodyfluids
>>1345852more art examples? okay with lizard/dragoness anthro? Appearance prepared in text, and more towards DnD monster race rather then goofy furry or anime-style monster girls.
>>1345866Not good with animals or anthros, tried before but they don't come out as well because I don't have them really well studied (don't have evidence of this, they were all sketches and got lost in files). If you still want to take the risk, I'm open to being contacted.
>>13449806 months? are you fucking joking?
>>1345992I heard of a guy who waited two years for his, and I've personally written off some I tried to get off of an artist around Christmastime so that's fairly close to six months by now.
>>1345992 Geez and I considered myself slow for taking 3 months on a 10 page full colored comic
>>1346016comics are different tbqh, so waiting 3 or more months is ok, but for one single pic its to much>>1346009didn't he get bored?
>>1346009I waited on an artist for 4 months to finish my commission, took them a while because they had family issues. They were extremely apologetic however, gave me extra art for the wait.
>Commission an artist.>they do a sketch and then disappear>ignore you when asking for an update>they've drawn stuff since for their blog and it's not even that good>wish I'd just commissioned someone elseLove when this happens.
>>1346893Who are they so we can avoid being scammed?
>>1346976Nah, I'm sure they'll turn up with it again, just venting a little.
>>1346893This is why I always charge after I'm done, I don't like to backstab people or let them down. Yeah it's a risk of not getting paid but I think that trusting your customers is a risky but kind move to show you actually care
>>1339941How thicc is thicc?
>>1341937How many panels do you make per comic page? Does it depend on the script size?
>>1339959>Wake up, Mr Pajama Man
So I'm new to commissions, and recently I got a few too many really quickly, I think it ended up being over 20 in less than 2 weeks. They take a few days a piece and some are multiples that I have to do over time, so this means some later people on the waitlist have been waiting about a month and a half, and the ones I have yet to do have to wait longer still.I don't take money until I actually start doing the work for their commission, and I've closed commissions down since, but I'm wondering how bad this reflects on me.Obviously I've decided when I re-open to do it by slots, but I still have the rest of the list first
>>1347120I think if you explain that much, most of the people who've been waiting would understand. Those who don't probably aren't the kind of customers you'd want to have in the first place.
>>1347120It does make you seem a bit disorganized, but the most honest way to deal with that is to make a queue so everyone can see where they areFor example: Guy1 (Chun-li gangbang): FinishedGuy2 (OC blowjob): Lineart Guy3 (Pokegirls): WaitlistAnd you edit/reblog your queue every time after you finish a bit, so everyone knows where they are
I want to start posting my art on tumblr and start doing commissions, but I'm having trouble with choosing a name.Any tips?How did you choose your name?
>>1347360Pick random syllables. Random words you like just strung together
>>1347360A Tumblr name is a sacred thing. You can't just pluck a name out of the aether all willy-nilly. You need to journey to the mountaintop and obtain your name from the old wise man sitting there.
>>1347360Look around for random objects in your room.Pick one, and then select three random numbers.
>>1317773Ho boy, been a while since I've shilled. Looks like we've gotten a ton of new drawfags! I'm opening a couple slots for anyone interested. ToS and more samples: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1CU9ubNqUTR5YvmhBhCqlScIMmb1xNuelD2v0NqxDEnE/edit?usp=sharing
a commission i did recently
finished this recently
>>1348129Someone paid money for this?
>>1348178it's no worse than the usual you see here.
>>1348838>>1348202i think they mean it as in: "wow I can't believe someone paid for two futas doing it" kind of way
>>1347091Honestly im pretty lenient for comic panels. Ive been in the mood for a comic for a WHIILE but nobody ever wanted one? Which is wierd. But yeah unless you WANT a specific panel layout. Ill usually lay it out myself. But it doesnt change the price. Its animations which are wierd
>>1319094Newest piece. I think I might stay with the pay-what-you-want system. Its been working out pretty well.
>>1349184>pay-what-you-want systemWould you mind telling us how much do you usually earn on a single commission?
>>1349205Usually between $10-$20
>>1319076wait. email.com isn't real. do you mean gmail?
>>1349233Nope, @email.com just like it says.Are you having trouble getting through?
>>1349247was just curious. I'm going to email you, if you don't see it check in spam.
>>1318796Is farting part of that "almost anything"?
