Commission [FULL] by chibiBiscuit Commission [FULL] by chibiBiscuit
(Wow, that went fast (4 minutes after hitting Patreon)! I'm going to work on these along with my art for next month, and I'll let you all know as soon as a slot opens up!)

I'm excited to announce that commissions are now open!

Before we get to signups, I want to mention a few policy-type things, and how  I'm going to try to handle them this time. (Of course, as patrons you all get first dibs. I'll post this to dA / Tumblr later tonight or tomorrow)

Let me know if you guys have any questions!


Signup by commenting here, or by sending me a message on Patreon or dA. The ones that do so first will get the first slots.
Once you get a slot, send me a message describing what you're interested in getting. We'll work out the details, and I'll send you an invoice through PayPal, half of which needs to be paid upfront.
I'll send you work-in-progress pictures throughout the process. Please try to bring any revisions or feedback to my attention as early in the process as you can. I'm absolutely happy to make any changes you need, but if you ask me to redraw the whole picture when we're already mostly through with coloring it, we might need to talk about the cost of the modifications.
Once you're happy with the finished product, you'll pay whatever's left on the invoice, and (as long as you're okay with it) I'll post the finished picture! Then I'll reopen the slot, make a little announcement and whoever wants it can jump in and grab it!


And now, without further ado:

Commission Slots [FULL]

If this commission list fills up fast then sign me up for later when it comes up again.

As I said, I'm not taking early sign ups. I'll make a post when I'm about to reopen commissions, and sometime after that, I'll make a post on Patreon. Following that, I'll make a post on dA to fill any remaining slots (if any). I can't keep track of all the people who want to be notified, so my best advice is to stay tuned and keep an eye on my journals in the coming months.

Yeah that's the hard part, as you mention earlier the commission list fills up fast in like 5-10 minutes. You should note me before you open up the list, otherwise it's like Black Friday for art.

Like I just said, I can't keep track of all the people who would like to be notified when commissions open up. You aren't the first person to ask this, and as much as I wish I could personally note or message every person ahead of time so they're aware, I can't. You will just have to make do the same as everyone else.

Oh darn...I was far too late for this, wasn't I? Perhaps once a spot frees up, I might consider a flat colors one from you. ^^ It's been a good while since I asked of any art from you, and this seems like an ample opportunity!

Here's hoping I can get a slot in the foreseeable future!

Ah. I had no chance of getting a slot this time, but maybe next time. Still, it's nice to see the prices to have in mind should I be successful in landing a spot.

However, I am curious about what you mean by the extra costs. Is it based on just asking to add them or how much work would have to go into them?
Reply
:iconchibibiscuit:
chibiBiscuit Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
It's entirely about the amount of time it takes to complete them, and the context of when the request is being asked. For instance, if we're in the sketch phase of a shaded picture, and you let me know that I missed the mark on what your character looks like, and ask me to take another shot at it, that's no problemo. But that same piece of feedback delivered when we're in the shading phase means redoing the sketch, the lineart, the coloring on it, which is a substantial amount of work. I'll still make those changes, that's still no problem, but if it's adding four hours of work because the feedback was delivered super late and large changes are necessary, then we'll probably need to re-negotiate the price.

Keep in mind, it will take a lot for me to come back and say that we need to talk about the price. It's really just there for protection from that 'Death from a thousand cuts' situation. I took one commission, way, way back when, where I actually made less than one dollar an hour on it due to changes and demands from the client. This clause is specifically there to stop that.

Ah. I'm no stranger to artists charging extra for the background or adding a character myself, as I've commissioned the wonderful :iconangelgts: on a few occasions (such as with Megan, the character in my avatar) who has a similar price setup for her commissions, but it's nice to know roughly what it'll cost before committing to it. I can understand wanting to protect yourself from clients that can't settle on what and how they want their commission to look like.

I suppose in the end one could just ask while requesting the commission if including this character or that kind of background would invoke the extra charge and decide from there if they want to go with it... (hopefully that came out right... ^^; )

That's all stuff that we'd figure out early on before things really started going on it. :) I think I misinterpreted your original question and took it really far off-base. XD If we're talking about the +Character and +Background charges, it would depend kind of how detailed they are. Like if you need an extra or two in a city scene, and the detail level is really low, I probably wouldn't charge for that. It's all subjective stuff, and the prices are really just a guideline.

I really like your art. You put your heart into it. I am tired of rather disgusting pictures on the Internet, including DA. So, your pictures are realistic, touching, and nicely drawn.

Slowly. I'm working on page 21 right now. I believe that after this, there's 2-3 pages left. It takes a while to do, though, and things will probably get delayed some with me focusing on commissions for a bit. I will hopefully get the next page posted this month though, so even though the progress is slow, you should see more of it soon. :D

Congrats for the business :)  Blink 'Store open' Blink "Store Closed". Heh.  A lot of artists seem to end up in that state.  Dunno if there's ever any real good answer for it.

I don't know really if there's a good way to resolve it, other than to dedicate more time to it... Which is kind of impossible, since I need my job to live. ^^;

More time isn't really an answer (since it gathers more of an audience that fills it faster again).
Some artists pick and choose, which can be frustrating (but is their right).
Some alternate times, but if it is only open once every so 'often', and you miss the time that is good for you, it becomes frustrating for it being a looong wait till next chance.  Same with regular times.
Some just keep a set number of slots and open the old ones as the new ones are done.  Kinda works and gets it out of being a scheduled 'event'.  Dunno.
Some raise prices, which is fair, but can drive audience away (and it's not like it works to just move them up and down regularly).

I just don't think there really is a solution to the problem. I mean, I don't really want to increase prices, since I don't want to alienate anybody, and since I only want to charge what it's worth time-wise. I don't want to do the raffle thing really. I'm just going to take it as casually as possible. Fill slots, complete pictures, and keep going. That's all I can do. ^_^
