Pleeeease join us! :D
creeperville asked: How did you find work with Evomon and Aywas? I would lovelovelove to do what you do, but I really don't have any idea how to start. Do you have any tips on the matter? Thank you and keep being amazing. <3 I've been following you since Neopets and just recently found your blog!
I was huuuge into Neopets in high school so I drew them all day long until I was asked to draw for a small starting petsite. They actually paid me considerably well considering I was 15 haha. Ever since then I’ve been drawing for petsites. I guess it found me!
I’m also part of a forum that’s really good for anyone who wants to get into that area: http://www.virtualpetlist.com/
They have a marketplace where you can post pets/items and people bid on them. :)
The hardest part of my evenings (when motivation strikes) is deciding whether or not I want to go to the gym after work, or go home and do artwork. HEALTH OR ART. So hard.
lovecrescendo asked: When I first started selling commissions it'd be $2 for a pic that'd take me 3-5 hours to do, mostly because I didn't really think anyone wanted my art -- I wasn't in it for the money, I just wanted to improve, and learn how to take commissions from other people. It was a nice idea in theory, but I got overbooked -- I'm also one of those people who has a really hard time saying no to someone -- and I'm STILL suffering from that.
I was absolutely the same way! My photoshop characters took anywhere from 2 to 4 hours, and all I asked for was $10. I was in high school, didn’t need the money, and I was just trying to fill up my summer with things to do. Now that I have my own place with rent, utilities, cell phone, insurance, taxes etc…wow that is such an insignificant price!
No joke, I still have one or two from that point of my life that I have to finish. I way, way overloaded myself, and now finding the time to sit down for 4 hours to finish a piece is so hard to come by!
