commission guide for beginners
First of all:
This guide is not meant to be 100% perfect and suitable for everyone.
Some people might do not agree with this guide or they might cannot work with it.
I also apologize for my poor grammar, if you spot any major mistakes, misspellings or grammar errors, feel free to correct me in the comments!
Without further ado, let's get it started!
What is this guide for?

This guide is meant to be for:
- artists who would like to take commissions
- artists who are already taking them & may need some help in improvement
- or simply for people who are unsure about their commissions & prices
Some people, including myself, really struggled (and may still struggle) with their commissions.
Wether it be the pricing, the way they offer them or the infamous "noone is buying my stuff", there can be many obstacles you may run in when taking commissions on deviantART.
How do I get started?

It's actually pretty easy to start your first commissions

Artists: STOP and READ!
People need to stop completing projects for clients under market prices (i.e., minimum wage). This drags the entire art market down and damages your future as an artist, damages other artists' livelihoods, and negatively affects the art industry as a whole (e.g., client perspective of the value of an artist's time/skill).
Artists need to be professional, and they need to treat their work as something that consumes resources (time, equipment/supply cost, etc.). I am surprised by how many people believe an artist will do work for free, or for the "idea" of success...that someone can bait an artist and their hard-earned and practiced skills by saying "you will be paid when I get paid...if the project is successful." There are also people out there who think an artist's work is theirs to use any way they want once they receive the commissioned art, without ever discussing it with the artist - or worse - without the artist taking the client aside and explaining copyright and licensin

I've been drawing since I can hold a pencil and tried my first comic at the age of 10. Cartoons and comics have always been my main interest, although anime followed as an influence later on. I have a fascination with canines, equines and creatures of folklore, which are also my main source of inspiration.

I haven't been active there for very long and I'm still off to a rocky start, so if you could help advertise my page, that would be awesome :heart:.

Also, I believe Instagram would have been the better choice for an artist to upload stuff?
