How much do you charge for a drawing of a character?

Slots for commissions are currently closed for a while (working through a backlog).

But for the future you can find my Pricing and Info HERE. (It is also on the front of my DeviantArt page and a link on my Tumblr.)

so i was considering doing the hallows end exchange, but i'm kinda worried if i get something and i'll mess it up horribly? i've had more pratice drawing certain things than others, and i don't want to get someone's character and then they turn out awful, so that makes the other person feel bad :( and then i feel bad for not being able to draw them well enough. the other thing was i'm more familiar w/ traditional art, so will it have to be digital?

It’s okay! This is a logical thing to worry about, but I’m sure you’ll do fine!

The exchange is for artists of all levels. Treat it like fun practice and just roll with it. I’m 100% positive whoever you draw for will love their character art if you put effort into it. :)

Speaking for myself: I want the person drawing my character to enjoy the challenge and do their best for their skill level. No stressing, no worrying. Just draw and have fun. I will love it.

According to Tmirai: You can do either digital OR traditional! But you MUST submit a digital file (so scan in your traditional art and save as a jpg) to Tmirai in order to participate.

You can find more info HERE. If you have any other questions toss and ask to Tmirai (they don’t bite, I promise).

I'm sorry, you probably get these questions a lot, but I was wondering if you've ever done any tutorials or have any tutorials/references/websites that have helped you grow with your art? Your art has really inspired to take my own art a little bit more seriously and practice more. I want to be able to get closer to drawing exactly what I see in my head and as you've said before, practice is key!

Don’t ever feel sorry for asking me a question. Im always more then happy to answer things, or toss a link to a previous answer. No biggie. ♥

I haven’t done any legit tutorials yet, but below are some links of gifs/walkthroughs and previous asks I’ve answered that may help you a bit.

Close up from that Male Twi’lek piece I did a bit ago.
I think I need to draw more bandaged and blood splattered men more often. Yes.

Hihi! Newbie hobbyist artist here looking to improve. How much time do you spend (if any) on learning practice bits like gesture/figure/still life/etc. versus your fun work and commissions? Also, what helped you improve the most when you were starting out? Thanks for the awesome streams! :D

Alrighty! Long post incoming!

I TRY to spend at least 30min a day on gesture drawing (20 one minute gestures, and 2 five minute detailed drawings). Though lately it’s been only about 2 hours a week total (instead of 6 a week).

I highly recommend everyone doing 10min a day of gestures before you start normal drawing. I use THIS SITE and do nude figures set to 60 seconds (under standard mode setting, classroom mode is for long sessions). If you can do 10 gestures a day, breaking down the figure and learning shapes and poses, you’ll improve amazingly.

Blocked in the background for this piece, and sketched out the figure. Reading for inking and finishing. :D
