Hello, I'm an artist who is planning on opening commisions for the first time. As someone who has done commisions, I was wondering if you could give me any advice, how the process works and just things I should be aware of in general?
Oh, good luck on that!!! i only have to say that it’s okay if you don’t like doing commissions because you’re not an artist suited for that. It took me a while to understand I don’t have to do them because there are other ways to make money without forcing myself nuts into doing something I don’t really enjoy. It’s a good way to discipline yourself into producing for others, if you want to see it that way, but just have in mind that it’s okay if you don’t like it and don’t want to do it!! We got to find the ways that work best for us and that means experimenting with everything we can reach!!
Not to say that Steven Universe doesn't have its problems, because it does, but you're also ABSOLUTELY making fun of it because it's popular to do so. You do you, chase that golden reblog, but don't try and pretend the only reason you're doing it is out of love for the show.
