So this will probably only affect a few people, but I'm going to close commissions for maybe a month or so, just to change some stuff and because of current time constraints (basically I don't have a summer job, but I'm spending hours every day cataloging my grandma's book collection- like to put it into perspective, she has like 10+ bookshelves in her house, the smallest of which had 200+ books on it -_-' )
But basically what you can expect:
-raised prices. Hopefully it won't turn too many people away, but I'm thinking about raising them to $10 for 1 character and an additional $5 for every character afterwards (and Im changing this because I don't want to keep undervaluing my art, but the amount of time that it takes me to do every commission fluctuates too much for me to have an hourly rate)
-and increase in quality. Cause i'm really doing my best on every one, but I feel like they're usually not as good as my regular fanart because I'm more experimental with that sort of stuff (since im not being paid for it, I usually try more new stuff in my fanart, but I feel bad experimenting on a piece that someone's paying for). So my goal here is to make it so that there's not so much of a gap there.
*I'm also going to start experimenting more so that I can start doing things like nsfw commissions as well. cause im still such a shy baby about doing them*
-Better response times. this is a personal one, but oh man, I'm so bad at responding to things right away. Like I've never commissioned anyone so I have no idea what the usual response time for anything is, or how long commissions usually take, so I'll just try to be more efficient about this type of thing
But also, I just wanted to ask anyone who I've done commissions for if they had any feedback (or criticisms) for me? Cause I want to make it a better experience for everyone, but that's all moot point if Im not listening to what my commissioners are telling me
