I do commissions and art trades. Mostly freebies and art trades.

I would if I could but no one would buy them. I've tried. I don't exactly want to do freebies though since I'm kinda past that stage and it takes me a long time to do stuff. Plus I kinda spent 17 years working on my skills. :<

I do, I make a couple hundred a year on painting commissions.
But I would like to try a variety of things, the only ones I get are for paintings, which I love, but it would be fun to do other projects.
I'd also like to follow in my step-grandmother's footsteps and become a real good artist like she is.

I'm not in an urgent need for money right now, but I'd like to dabble in doing commissions, as a side income. It'd help discipline myself and I would like to do it, but there are reasons I still haven't get to that.

I'm afraid I don't have enough skill and motivation to finish a commission on time. Also, I'm afraid that my commissioner might not be satisfied with my work. It doesn't help that I don't really understand how payment works over the Internet, and I worry that there may occur problems with it. That'd be so annoying...

In short, I have neither confidence nor knowledge to do commissions. :iconotlplz:

This is true, but black and white make enough grey as it is. Colours hold so much sometimes less is better. There should be a good balance realy

in black and white, thought you meant ONLY black and white, if i get bored of seeing the world as it is i just lay on the grass and close my eyes and sleep for like a good 10-15 minutes, when its done i see everything in purple or green or blue, and when i blink its an explosion of colours! haha pretty interesting, idk im weird and i got bored alot

I'd like to, but my art isn't that good and I don't really know why people would ask me to draw for them when I have friends that could do a better job...... I don't know, plus, I'd feel bad if I charged people for my art. Especially when it's something I enjoy and it would give me a new challenge.

Where is the option for "I've had commissions open for months and nobody is at all interested, so it turns out I don't do commissions, I guess"? :'D
Because that's kind of me....

I usually do requests. :iconpervylinkplz: But often times, since most of the requests I do take are people I know, they pay me. But it varies. Plus I'm slow as all get out, so commissions tend to be a bad idea for me. :iconsulkplz: lol
