just to get that ancient journal entry off my front page haha.
So anyway, right now I'm working on my final project for school! Here's my current animatic: www.youtube.com/watch?v=kSnneX…
and I should (hopefully) be done with the whole animation by next Feb. :>
Problem is I don't know what to do after graduation :[ I'll probably take a small break and open up commissions again (not that I actually get commissions oops), and possibly try streaming art? But that's kinda short term, I'm not so sure what to do after. I don't know if I want to study further because the schools here I'm interested in cost a bomb, and overseas education probably costs a few more bombs too. But I don't know what kind of job I can net with my current level (plus I don't want to go into an animation job....).
That aside, I don't know if the reason why I wasn't getting commissions was because I'm not good enough, the prices were too high, or I didn't publicise enough? I guess maybe all 3 but I'm quite worried about the prices, the usual problem of not wanting to go too low but not sure if too high either. :\
I'm thinking of something like:
3-5 USD for a b/w sketch
10-15 USD for a simple coloured sketch
20-40 USD for a nicer coloured pic without/with simple bg
50-80 USD for a full piece
I'm especially worried about the full piece prices; when broken down into the time I spend on the pic it seems fine, but as a whole they do sound like a lot :\\\\
Oh well I guess I still have some time to think about it...commissions or not I still have to spend the free time afterwards stuffing my portfolio :V
