Possibly accepting commissions

by
This is not a journal to indicate that I will be accepting commissions, only that it's a possibility. I view my art as a hobby, and I will never treat it as an actual source of income. However, it was suggested to me that I could make some money on the side for my efforts. Considering how I no longer enjoy doing requests, the money should provide me some incentive to draw for other people. Here is a possible breakdown of what my commission info would look like...

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sketch: $1
I currently have no means of offering an actual sketch work as a commission piece, as my current method of drawing sort of bypasses this stage. However, once I do work something out, I reckon that's the price it will go for. I have no examples to show as of yet.

Digitally Inked: $2
All images I do so far are scanned first and then digitally inked.
Some examples...

https://inkbunny.net/submissionview.php?id=223356

Full Colored: $6
This includes shading, highlights, everything in what I would deem as a finished product.
Some examples...
https://inkbunny.net/submissionview.php?id=253079
https://inkbunny.net/submissionview.php?id=100367

Backgrounds: $0-$2

[NOTE: This mainly applies to full colored commissions. For sketches and digitally inked commissions, a background consisting of line work is possible. Depending on the difficulty, such backgrounds may be free or charged an additional $1]

Any background that is either plain or has simple gradients are free.
Examples...
https://inkbunny.net/submissionview.php?id=53777
https://inkbunny.net/submissionview.php?id=218346

Any background that is not deemed as plain or abstract (such as a background with clouds) will go for $1. For backgrounds that have landscapes and simple structures, the price may be increased to $2 depending on the difficulty.
Examples...
https://inkbunny.net/submissionview.php?id=117173
https://inkbunny.net/submissionview.php?id=157157

I am willing to do backgrounds of interior rooms with furniture and all that, and they will go for $2. However, I will not be offering them until I get some practice in doing such backgrounds. For backgrounds that include buildings, vehicles, or anything detailed and complex in nature I will not be offering, as I feel I do not have the capability yet to do those kinds of backgrounds.

Characters: $0-$1
The first two characters are free. A third character will be charged an additional $1. This is assuming that all three of the characters' bodies are mostly in view in the image. Any special cases can be discussed. I will not draw more than three characters in a given image. These characters can be nude or clothed.

When I reject...
If I feel a particular character or background setting is too difficult to draw (e.g. full body tattoos with small intricate designs everywhere) for the prices I offer, then I will refuse to do the commission. Also, I will not draw certain fetishes, so that needs to be discussed with me. Here is an example of this.

Other considerations...
Because I feel these prices are pretty dirt cheap, I expect some leniency in terms of when I complete the commissions. Because I put my best effort into a particular piece by taking my time with it, I should be given at least 3-4 months to finish a full colored commission. I should take less than a month for sketches and digitally inked commissions, but another month may be needed depending on how busy I am. I also do not expect too many changes to be made to the commission. For digitally inked and full colored commissions, I will send a sketch version first, and that will be the time to make any necessary changes. Once it is past that stage, I expect no complaints in this regard.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Again, this is just an idea of what I may be offering and I'm still working on the details. I may end up deciding not to take commissions if it turns out to be too much of a hassle to figure things out.

You can note me if you have further questions or if you are interested. I will most likely start with the ones who note me with interest first if I do start accepting commissions.

Nice. Don't feel obligated to commission me though, as I am not even sure if I'll even be accepting commissions. If you can spend your money on better things or things you're more comfortable with, you should.

lol I admit, I was looking for more artists....my seartch was to find a cute female character that wuld be my main comission character, I find a lot of good looking characters, but paying 200$ for Commision was realy not my cup of tea (since my nations Income is not so Big and counting every payment to USD is rought)....but than I find youre Kiyomi and not long ago I find out that youre prices are very reasonable so, I think I did desided for Kiyomi ^.^
Next month, whan I will have money to Pay you, I will Commision you.

Ah, I see. If I accept commissions, I will be doing so only because the money will provide me incentive, not because I really want to make some serious income off my art. Thus, I wanted to price my stuff pretty cheap, and I'm glad you find the prices affordable.

I will post a journal some time next month to make a final decision and say whether or not I am accepting commissions. If I do decide to take commissions, I'll also be sure to note you.

Thank you for your interest. It's greatly appreciated.

I am glad to hear, I can basicly pay 50$ at max per month, but I am agreaing with you, some people asked me for Commisions to but I refused em with words that I am not doing any commisions and requests are akceptable ounly from close friends.
I am awaiting youre desidgion, and if you will not do any Commisions,...can you please draw more Kiyomi for me? I wuld allso like to know more about her too ^.^
You are allways welcome, I hope I will be able to repay you one day.

Well, Kiyomi was created on the spot when I decided to make the first drawing of her. I really have no background story for her, but I guess I might come up with one later on. I'll certainly draw more of her at some point, whether or not I accept commissions. If I end up not taking commissions, I might make the next Kiyomi drawing a special request for you if you want. It would be my thanks to you for your encouragement and support.

I wuld be happy to give you request...alldo I do not know yet what it will be,....how ever do not expect me to just "stand aside", I will try to recreate Kiyomi in 3D versio,n if you wuld like to see her in diferent light ^.^

The 3D models I see in your gallery are absolutely stunning. I would be completely honored if you were to recreate her in 3D, but please do not make it an obligation.

As for me, I'll try my best to let her get some more exposure on my end. :P

I'm quite honored that you feel that way about Kiyomi. I think everyone tends to have high expectations for themselves, and I also feel that I'm not at the level where I want to be as an artist yet. In this sense, I can relate to your situation.

I'll hopefully have some sort of character background for Kiyomi, as well as a description of her abilities and all that at some point. I might just throw that all onto a reference sheet. We'll see what happens.

A reference sheet of Kiyomi...lol I am shaking by inpatience,
however, I recomend to give her (and her sister's) abbilityes close to japan legends, since they are not far from it ^.^

The big idea that I get is that she can Posses people like "Tailed Kitsune" do...can be interesting to see Kiyomi teamed up with Tay like this...he can allso get her like this to places whare she will not be able to get

Whoops, I haven't been able to really keep track of my IB lately. My apologies.

Now that things are moving along I might factor that into Kiyomi's ref in the future. Thanks for the interesting ideas. :P
