Tell Me Another One! by cameoanderson Tell Me Another One! by cameoanderson
The first picture of Pyreheart her "Mom" didn't really care for - too cartoony and she thoght shomething was off. I tell you this becuase those of you who think I might get everything right he first time - I don't. :) The original Pyreheart image was uploaded just before this one if you want to compare. This one looks just like the dog! :)

Copied this from my facebook page:

-PRICE LIST-

Tiny (for cards/web graphics) - $30 +$5 for each pet
Small (prints at 16x20" max) $50 + $10 for each pet
Big (prints at poster sizes 36x48") $100 + $15 for each pet
Need a custom size? Please ask me :)

Current Special: Snow dogs 1/2 off! :)

Sizes: I paint on a digita 300dpi canvas that will scale up to sizes mentioned on the list and can be printed on canvas/poster/blankets/shirts etc. I email the picture and leave printing up to the commissioner.

Reference Images: Should be high-res and show eye color and important markings clearly. If you are in doubt, send extra images and/or describe the pets in your email. They go to cameo(at)groundcontrol(dot)us

It all depends on your audience. The more people who know your work, the higher you can have your prices. I have a facebook page that 100% drives my business. dA is just a formality for high-res showing off.

I think I need to start up a FB page. I've been putting it off for a while now, for no real reason... How do you market yours, if you don't mind me asking? Just in signatures for forums and so on, or some other way?

Facebook does it all for me. I don't have to market it at all. I just paint. What you do is join a couple animal groups (That's what I did when I first got started) and paint people's pets there. Each time you upload a finished commisison to your page (don't skip any, show them all off) then the person who commissioned it will "Share" it. And when they do, their friends will see and "like" it and they'll come back to see the rest of your work. That's how I get 100% of my commissions. Once you get started, you won't have to do much for marketing. The more someone loves the piece you did for them, the more friends they're going to show it to and refer to you. I don't mind you asking at all. I love to help other artists when I can.

Ahhhh right, that's a good idea, I'm in a few art groups but I think that's the wrong audience since an artist doesn't often want another to do what they could on their own haha. Thanks for all the advice :) It's really helped.
