I wanted to make a quick journal update in regards to my commission prices. I recently decided to raise my commission prices as I felt that I was under pricing (though I still am) my art work. I want to be able to offer affordable commissions to people while still making a decent profit for myself, as it is I make less than minimum wage off my commissions, and for some people their commissions are their only means of income. I have bills to pay and eventually I'll have to repay my school loans and I want to be able to start saving for those things. I don't feel that I'm ready as an artist to charge what I see most artists charging for commissions because I am still learning and have a long way to go before I hone my skills, but I do feel like my art is worth what I'm charging. I hope that you all can understand where I'm coming from and are supportive of my decision, and I apologize for any inconvenience this causes any future transactions
On a side note, I'm planning on entering the lottery this year for the Artist Alley at AN. I'm still going to enter the cover contest and I also plan on entering the gallery momiji this year as well. I hope that even if I don't get a table I might be able to see you guys in the gallery momiji or around the convention.
My school requires me to do a co-op this year so I'll have that to do this summer but I should still be able to work on commissions outside of that.
My commissions are open if you are interested, you can click the link in the side bar to visit my commission journal
Thanks for reading.
