Doll Tutorials and Commission how-to information

Basic art doll tutorial by ZombieHunPosable Doll Tutorial By Eviecats by Eviecats911 How To Rescue Dry Clay by LimitlessEndeavours
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

BIG FAT DISCLAIMER 
Thank u for entering. Will announce winners tomorrow :)

EDIT

Since DA is being buggy with the message system, I will answer questions as a general FAQ:

Will you extend the deadline so I can submit?
    No, I am sorry. I do not extend deadlines on my contests. Its something I've never liked doing. The only time I will extend would be if for some reason the site you're submitting your entry on is currently down. In example, FA is down. The people on FA will get one additional day to submit when the site comes back up. this is for people who use FA exclusively.


-------------------

I'm feeling good this autumn and want to give out some treats.

You were one of my most favorite artists when I was younger. Before you did dolls and you did colored pencil stuff. I remember you inspired me to do more color pencil stuff and I would send it to you, hehe. It's so nice to see your art has grown and evolved and your dolls are beautiful. :)
