Yeah I'd love to see more activity in the Weekly Art Promt thread, but oh well. It's no secret that forums are getting less popular with Discord and social media around ^^;

And I hope you feel better soon, canisaries.

I'm good! :D Saw sunshine today after months without it, so that was really nice.

I'll try posting more drawings too soon, been a bit busy with staff stuff and school work ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I'll try to post more often as well, once the dust settles a bit all around. I'm definitely eager to work on more art and stuff. ^^

It's been quite a time since this has been posted in. How is everyone going, four months hence?
I have managed to do... at least a bit in that time... always room for improvement productivity-wise, but... I've learnt to be less hard on myself, otherwise it's just a vicious cycle.

found out there's no legal issues with me starting commissions after all, so preparing for it by practicing and trying out different styles

I had considered starting commissions as well at some point, but I still don’t feel my style is nearly polished enough for that. Backgrounds are still a pain for me to draw… x-x

I'm probably gonna do commissions at some point but I feel like figuring out prices is really difficult :T

oh definitely, a friend of mine would like a group picture with money pooled from all the people featured and he expected me to charge like $15-25 per face and meanwhile i'd been like "do i dare ask for $5 per face i feel like that's ripping them off" d:

I think the pricing would depend from the kind of work. For example, a sketch could be like 5$ while a complete work could be around 15-20$.

From what I’ve learned at the comics academy, comic covers cost around 100$ on average, and drawings for children books are fairly expensive and requested.

What happened to the request thread? No one seems to use it. :(

People seem to prefer opening (free) art shops or taking commissions (outside the forums). Understandably so. Art shops allows you more control and gives you the chance to tell people what you're able to do and what you won't do before they request anything. As for commissions, people often want something back for their hard work. More experienced artists often do those instead.

The forums (and especially the art gallery) has also become more and more quiet as people prefer posting art on social media instead.

I want to try to... bring this thread back from the ashes.

@Rainbow Cloud and I are welcoming any suggestions/ideas anyone has as to what kinds of new things we could do in the Art Gallery. It'd be lovely to see more activity around here!

In the meantime, can you figure out this incredibly difficult puzzle? The answer is a Pokémon move!
