Hi all my peeps!
So yeah... I had a fun little break of no commissions... Tried working on some stuff just for me (I did a bit. But boy do those art-blocks sure set in quick when there's no client waiting hahah)
Unfortunately those much beloved extra costs have tracked me down.
I've been putting off getting my teeth checked up for way too long. Now I need my wisdoms pulled (one of them finally penetrated my gums at age 24. The others are lurking nearbye I'm sure) I don't have an exact quote on what I need, but I believe if I raise $800.00 that should cover it.
THIS IS WHY WE NEED DENTAL INSURANCE PEOPLE. I highly advise that if you don't have a job with coverage, GET INSURANCE. I'm going to be after this.. I think a monthy fee is worth the coverage I'll get.
Anyways yah. $800.00 is my goal.
Since my starting fee on average is $50.00 (See my commissions journal for pricing info. All the price points there are still up-to-date rikona.deviantart.com/journal/…
) so I need to book about 16 commissions to raise enough money.
Unless of course anyone is interested in character-design commission projects. There's info in my commissions journal, but basically the price works out to be $100.00 even, and includes a concept sketch page, as well as the final design (there is more flexibility with changes in the final design for character-design commissions vs. character portrait commissions)
I also highly encourage any prospective clients who want tattoo design commissions! I'm working on a tattoo portfolio for the day when I apply for an apprentiship, and I would love to have more works available. You can view my current tattoo portfolio at lacey-crombie.daportfolio.com/
I love geometric/abstract tattoo concepts the most, though I haven't had a huge amount of clientelle for that style.
Tattoos are priced differently than standard character portrait drawings, therefore I cannot give quotes until I've received a description of the tattoo design. If you're curious and have a concept in mind, just send me a note
I WILL ONLY BE TAKING 4 CLIENTS AT A TIME in order to avoid overwhelming myself. If the slots are full, please be patient as they will open up again. Once I reach my financial goal of $800.00 I'll close up shop again.
