  • 12/28/12--12:02: The 20% Issue
  • A quick breakdown on my thoughts about deviantART taking 20% from the new commissions widget and why I don't think it's an issue.

    Journal
    So, as most of you are aware there is a new project in beta testing: a commissions widget. Given that I currently only have my phone and my mother's ancient laptop I haven't had the chance to play with it to much but I have been reading through the comments left on the journal about the new feature and the most common thing I see is "YOU CAN'T TAKE 20%!!1!!11".

    Guys. Inhale. The 20% thing is not a big deal for several reasons.

    1) Commissions are a buisness. Buisness have expenses. Even regular freelance work has some cost to it. Traditional commissions have the materials needed, digital commissions have the programs you use, there's

    My thoughts on the new commissions widget that is currently in beta testing.

    Journal
    So, I've had a chance to play with things a bit now and I have to say I'm pretty happy with the system. It is by no means something I would use for most commissions, given that I like to work with my clients to find the best price for them (and a fair amount of my prices go above the price limit), but it's great for simple stock commissions such as sketches that don't vary much on prices. There are a few things about it, mostly visual things, that I think could be better.
    1) There needs to be a basic text box that sits at the top of the commission widget to put basic info into. Stuff like the artists rules, how to send questions, et

  • I wrote this essay for college, and i didn't originally didn't intend to submit it here to deviantART. But given all the complaints about the new commission widget deviantART has released I decided to submit it since it does a good job of explaining my thoughts on making money off of artwork.

    Yes, the relation between commissioner and client is different than the relation between a business and a customer in some ways. But overall it isn't that different. There's still fees, there's still mark-ups, there's still price competition. Commissions are a business. You're going to have to accommodate for fees such as the dA fees, the paypal fees, the shipping fees, etc. if you don't want your business to go under. This isn't ripping your clients off, this isn't disrespecting them, this is running a business and ensuring you will be able to continue running it for future clients.

    Also, here's the piece I reference in the essay:

    I am by no means a professional artist. I would love to be one, but I’m not quite there yet. That’s not to say I don’t make some money off of my art though, I do try and sell things here and there and take some commissions to have a little extra cash. But I’ve always run into this funny little conundrum with my artwork and the people around me and what they think of it when I show it off. They all have this weird assumption that I should be making money off of every single piece I make.
    Take a painting I did recently of the band Black Veil Brides. I showed it off to a fellow illustrator and music enthusiast and he was

    Okay, so I am incredibly confused at the moment. The electricity has gone out in my room, but ONLY my room. It still works fine in my sister's room which is on the same circuit. We even have have an outlet that is in the exact same place on our shared wall, but it only works on her side. All the outlets in my room don't work, but everything in the house is fine. We reset every single breaker in the house twice and the rest of the house is fine, but my room still refuses to work.

    Any advice? I want my room back...

    Okay, so Black Veil Brides is having a contest to create a tour poster for their Church of the Wild Ones tour! I took my recent "Church of the Wild Ones" painting and updated it a bit to fit more within the theme of the contest and made it the right size and such.

    The overall winner will be picked by the band, but votes will play a part so I would greatly appreciate if you guys were to take a look at all the entrants and vote for mine if you find it to be the best! Sadly, you can only vote through facebook though... Here's where to vote: [link]

    EDIT: I won!!!!!!! [link] :hooray:

    I won the BVB poster contest!
    Thanks so much for your support guys! Winning the contest was an awesome thing to wake up to. I was super excited to go to their concert on Monday before this, but there's no words for how excited I am now! I've got VIP tickets to, which is gonna be super fun.

    Also, I do have power back to my room now! One little wire was loose in my sisters light-switch and it killed power to my room and part of my mom's room. Stupid little wire, making me all behind on things because I had to piggy back off of my neighbor's crappy internet.

    So yes, I'm a little behind on things now. I have some stuff people have aske
