I've been asked a couple times already about how I price my commissions. Often, I think it's because I tend to price my work higher than a lot of other artists, yet people are still willing to buy. I think this journal will sum things up quite nicely (from my personal viewpoints.)
A Brief Econ Class
So how do I price, then?Frequent Concerns
My philosophy for pricing art is actually best illustrated by the opening page of this chapter of AKB49 (a manga based off of popular idol group AKB48).
So what does this mean? "Because... it really is delicious" represents the idea that something can be sold for a higher price because demand is high. Time for a quick economics class!
Commissions [how to] MasterpostHello everyone! Lots of people seem very lost and confused about doing their own commissions, and I get asked questions about it quite a lot. There are a few resources out there, yet people still and still ask, so I figured I'd make a post trying to cover everything, as well as answer as many questions that I can.YukikaChan
First thing's first... and what I consider to be very important...
Getting yourself out there.
Well, how are you supposed to get commissions if you are hardly noticed? This one may be the hardest of all things for you to do as someone who wants to be commissioned. I've recommended a few things to my irl friends, and here's some tips I will relay to you:
Firstly, you need to have a style that appeals to everyone. Sure, having your own unique style that makes you happy is important, but when you are trying to appeal to the public, you need to make sure your style appeals to more than just you.
You need to be active. No one will want to commission
