Six Ways to Earn More Commissions
:new: Hi there! :wave: If you enjoy this article, please take a moment to check out my career-change goal for 2016 and possibly help me out! Thanks!
If you’re serious about earning an income with your art, then you have to be serious about marketing yourself. If you’re like me, you hate selling… you don’t like rejection, it makes you nervous and you think you’re no good at it. That’s why we’re artists and not salesmen. Fortunately marketing yourself is kind of an art form. :nod: Although I don’t have all the answers, I’d like to share a little of what I’ve learned about the art of marketing ourselves.
:bulletblue: Be Seen: First, make it easy for people to find you. Create a deviation with a list of the different kinds of commissions you offer, with a sample and a price for each. Put this deviation near the top of your profile so that everyone knows you’re open for commissions. H

The common misconception
When giving workshops last weekend, I was confronted with something at least remarkable.
I had a random chat with a girl that apparently knew me from DeviantArt. We a friendly conversation about art such. It wasn't that strange, until she concluded her message with. 
"It's nice talking to you. I always wanted to know what you were like. You know... since you draw so well"
And I was like... "Huh? What?"
Some people see me as a talented writer or artist, others (including myself) raise the bar even higher.
But regardless of what you see as skilled or not, I don't think there's such a thing as 'them' and 'us' in the art world. It's too small of a world. We're too alike. And I think most of us aren't exactly prone to living a celebrity lifestyle anyway. Bitches & bling don't match well with the usually quiet lifestyle an artist prefers.
When I started doing painting, I looked up to many of the lo

Artist | Student | Digital Art

I'm Moe,
I'm a digital art student in Port Orange Florida.

I am open for commission just about anytime unless stated otherwise. I think I have quite a bit to offer.
I have been on Deviant art for a while and have not met that many people yet. (Mostly because I haven't really tried :p)

But Now I will be more active in this community. I realize now just how important this type of website is for both meeting new people and developing skills.

I will be doing some research about specific topics to draw and write about in the future. If I start now within a few months I should be ready to start on something great.

Thanks for adding The common misconception to your collections. I'm happy that you like it :la:
MoeCorning Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2014  Student Digital Artist
No problem. I happen to be just starting out with classes and it really brought into perspective how those in my figure drawing class that have been doing it for years and why they talk to me on an equal level even though they are much better at rendering than I currently am.

Oh, and thank you for also adding one of my pictures to your collection. :)
