Oh god, I so want a commission. I'm going to have to save for a bit but I would love to see where you would take an OC of mine. I think she would look spectacular under your pen. I even have the scene in mind! I'll explain things in more detail when I have the money ready, though. xD For now, perhaps I can try to spark your artistic interest with a reference image. [link]
I do agree that your prices are very reasonable, and I call myself fortunate to even get the opportunity to commission you.
Ah ha!! I have my second commission in. Still don't know if it's accepted or not, I hope it is, but I sit with a bag of popcorn, anticipating the next stunning work of perfection from your fingertips to grace the universe! (Is that enough buttering up for you to OK the next commission?)
BTW, I'm just kidding around, I don't want to jump the que or butt in line or pee in your corn flakes as it were. I understand you have tones of school work that comes first and that is far more important. No matter what I think. XD
Some artists do sketches that are a bunch of vague brush strokes with the lines for perspective still in place. Others do everything short of the final linework. I was asking out of confusion, because the only example image here is a bust shot. My apologies.
I'll do as you said [link] and look in your gallery for examples.
I was just trying to be clear about what I was referring to, because it wasn't the post I was actually replying to. I don't know how busy you are or how often you post, I didn't want to presume that you recalled this exact conversation.
I didn't think of it as overcomplicating to ask how you define a word that a lot of artists define differently. I saw one image next to two different options, so I was asking for a bit of clarification. I didn't realize that it was that big of a deal.
Would you accept doing art for a fanfic, if it's commissioned here? I have one scene of mind from mine, but I seem to recall you mentioning not reading fics in one of your streams. Figured I'd ask to check
You should see the rates for non-fanart work. The fanart community basically asks artists to work for slave wages. According to the Graphic Artist Guild handbook, we all should be charging $500 per page minimum, to $9500 per page.

Mother of god. Still I suppose those non-fanart prices make sense from a commercial standpoint, seeing as how such high quality images take a great deal of time and there are not as large number of talented artists as there are workers in other industries.
There are more brain surgeons in the world than there are professional artists. The thing is, I actually put a tremendous amount of effort into any pictures that I produce as commissions, the same level I do for professional work.
