Working.... [Oct. 14th, 2003|02:03 pm]

I'm working on a Photoshop sketch for a really cool vampire commission, but I thought I'd take a quick break update here! I almost always do a layout for commissions in Photoshop first, so if the client wants changes, or things flipped around, I can do it before anything's set on paper or in paint. After I finish up these last few commissions, I'm probably going to raise my pricelist again. I've been getting too many requests (not that I can complain about that, hehe) and it's eating into my own painting time. Also, my originals are sometimes selling for more than my commission pricelist, so that's usually a sign that I need to increase my prices! Commissions take considerably longer to paint than my original paintings do, so I need to reflect that in my pricing. I'm also thinking about revising my policies to state that (with a few exceptions!) I'm only going to accept commissions that fall into my typical style and genre. I've had too many portrait-type painting commissions that eat waaaaay into my time, and aren't my typical types of paintings. There are enough portrait artists out there who I'm sure would be happy to tackle them!!!

In other news - I finished up my Green Goddess painting!!!! I love it so much - I think it's one of the best pieces I've done. I spent sooo much time on it, and put in so much detail, I'm definitely setting it in my eBay store at a fixed price (probably $650 or so, since it's a 16"x20" with so many different characters!). I'll probably get to painting in not too long, after I email off the sketch to Kagome, but I'll post here first to link the webcam!

I saw the painting and am really happy you are going to ask more for it. It is absolutely beautiful. You truly deserve to ask for more for your originals. And with the commisions, that is way cool that you are going to take control. People should be asking for pictures that are characteristic of the style that you have developed. I think that is the whole point to asking a specific artist to make a painting is to gain a painting that reflects their talents. Maybe I have no clue what I am talking about - But it seems to me what would be the point of asking Salvador Dali to make a pretty landscaping picture or portrait..seems his talent was a little more in depth than that(no offense to landscaping or portrait artists-i can barely draw stick figures.)
