Doll Tutorials and Commission how-to information

Don't get played (pt.2) Pricing, ads, etc.This will be someway related to my previous article called "Don't get played" and in this I will be posting a few ideas and tips I have gained over the years on how one could go about: 
* Pricing their artwork
* Gaining more experience and ways to improve
* Advertising 
* and a few other tidbits
So let's start off with Pricing, shall we? 
It seems to be a common problem, more so among younger/novice artists who are looking to start selling their work. It looks pretty easy when you look at the more popular/well known artists who have already established a consumer base and seem to be cranking out commissions left and right. However, let me just clear the air on this before we get started -- Fame isn't everything. Now, I know it may seem like it is the key ingredient to getting customers but that's not the case. Yes, being more well known can help bring in more revenue but it's not what gets you started in the first
Artist Info: How to Price Commissions"The master has failed more times than the beginner has even tried"
This is an informative journal to help artists determine fair pricing for commissions, based on my recent poll. I will update this as needed to include new information as it comes in.

BIG FAT DISCLAIMER 
Myself and Kamakru will be selling at Kumori Con, Portland OR this coming weekend. There we'll have lots of prints and I'll be selling my stock of dolls plus a limited run of Amaterasu mini art dolls.  It should be a very busy four days! Hope to see some of you there. Should certainly stop by our table to introduce yourself. I love meeting fellow art enthusiasts :3

Once the Kumori Con weekend is wrapped up, I will be closing commissions till further notice. I need to finish my current batch and from here one out will be perusing some personal art development. Its that time again where I feel stagnant and need to expand and just do whatever :D

pre-made art dolls and OOAKs will still be available to be purchased on my Etsy shop, the only difference is that I will no longer be accepting Etsy commissions from here on out unless its something small like a Pocket Guardian. So yes, though I'm closing my commissions pretty much indefinitely, the little Pocket Guardians will still be available for commission.

Art trades will be available on a case by case basis. I think art trades will be a nice opportunity to flex my creativity without feeling so pressured like a commission can come off as. So if you think you'd like to do an art trade with me, please don't be too shy to ask. Just respect the fact that I prefer to trade similar mediums. So 3D art for 3D art and 2D art for 2D art.

if there are any of you out there that are wanting a status update on your commission, please note me. Thank you.

My artist has announced on his Instagram that all commissions were being shipped out (this was last week) so we'll see if I even get my commission....
TheForgottenFriends has already a history of stealing peoples money. I'd advise never commissioning this person. As soon as you request a refund he ignores you. Found two hits on him on RipOffReport. He has done this before and understandably is not moved when confronted. I'm still doing what I can for myself.

I found this insightful and an valuable resource of information

A friend of mine had the misfortune of being victim of ToxicMutagen through Etsy. ToxicMutagen already has a bad reputation among the adoptable community but now they've extended their activities with tangeible goods and guess what th

Illustration and Art Doll commissions will be case by case basis from this point. If I love what you bring to me, I will do my best to make room ^_^



Do not ask me to sell my doll casts, heres why zombiehun.deviantart.com/art/Q… . What I offer to sell on Etsy are the ones that I will sell to the public. Never ask to buy what I'm not already offering, its your job to make your own awesome doll parts ^_^ Thank you.</b>



If someone acknowledges you that you have alot of skill that they're curious about for the sake of improving their own art goal but they refuse to share what their project is (to help you better understand what help they're needing) should you still try t
