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.
This is part of an 'Information Series of journals

This is only a GUIDE to help you figure out your prices. Remember that ultimately only YOU can decide what
Our new group, www.furaffinity.net/user/artdo…, has grown alot in its first week! We are all pleased with how well received this group has become. We're already up to 45 watchers and have 9 artdoll reviews!

If you have an art doll that you have purchased that you'd like to review, please send us a note! I think I need to mention that this is not meant for dolls as DIY kits as the review is meant to review the entire process the artist goes through when creating the doll and selling. Doll kits just isn't something we want to fill the review group with as they're more of a consumable rather than a completed product. However, IF the artist did use their own DIY kit to complete a doll that you purchased, that is valid. The idea here is that the artist had full control over the final product.

I still have dolls that I will post reviews for along with a couple art doll commissions that I'm waiting for them to be completed. So there will be more stuff reviewed by me in the future!

and yes, you should review stuff you may have bought from the admins of that group, we are not immune to peer/customer review :D


in unrelated news, I'm adopting a few new children. I will post pictures of them when I get them in the mail next week ^_^

Hello ZombieHun, you have a marvelous gallery. I enjoyed looking at the way you use mixed media in your illustrations. Looking at your work has made me pull out the gouache again and experiment with my condiment shelf! Thank you so much, Madeline
