So I have been thinking about putting up a journal thing for awhile saying that if anyone wants to may me to draw stuff I would be willing to uh... do... that... The main reason I hadn't posted a message before was because I didn't think I was good enough of an artist to justify being paid more than it would cost to ship the drawing in the first place.

So, lets get to the brass tacks as I've heard people refer to tacks that were merely brass plated. For an 11x17 drawing in pencil, I'd charge $20. These would be tight pencils like some of the pencils I've put up here that weren't colored. For an 11x17 drawing inked, I'll charge $25. And you know... that's inked. So, it should look alright. For a digitally colored 11x17 drawing, I'll charge $35. That'd be a digital print that includes the original inked drawing.

From what I have seen people usually charge for extra characters. I'm going to assume that is so that they don't have to constantly draw every member of the Legion of Superheroes every time and that makes total sense.  I'm not going to go crazy, but if you want two characters fighting or whatever, I won't charge extra. Otherwise, I will charge 15 bucks for each additional character. Also, another 8 dollars for shipping.

Now that we've gotten the unsavory discussion of my delusions of getting money out of the way, I'm going to explain a bit why I'm posting journal. As I mentioned before, I never entertained the notion of drawing for money because I have horrible self esteem. I didn't think anyone would WANT me to draw something for them and pay me in exchange. But times have changed and as the case may be, I currently DO get paid to draw stuff for people so I might as well tell the good people of deviantart that if you stumble across my page and think, "Hey, that Ramon Villalobos is a jam up guy and a talented artist, I should get him to draw something I want!" Well, then now you have the ability to follow that through. So there's that. Also, even if nobody responds, it doesn't affect me in the slightest to put this online if nobody responds. So there's that on top of that.

Anyhow... yeah. Just send me a note if you are interested in this eventuality. Also, feel free to email me at brigante133@gmail.com

You should list on eBay too, that's where I get pretty much all of my commissions.

Hmm, maybe I will, you'll have to tell me how you do that when we meet up on Tuesday. That is if you are going on Tuesday. Though I assumed you were since you and Mike meeting was the catalyst.

Forgive me for taking the initiative without your consent. I just wanted get one more feedback star so I won't be lingering at 79 forever... it was all pretty self-serving. :P

So far, one person is watching it. :)

Ah cool, thanks for that! Doesn't it cost money to do listings? How much does that kind of thing cost?

Depends on what price you start it at and if it sells or not. When calculating what price to sell it at on eBay, generally add $5 to cover eBay and Paypal fees.

For this one, I figured I'd take the fees out of the sale and if it doesn't sell, don't worry about it, I didn't ask you before hand anyway, and I'll only be out a whopping 75 cents. :P

I don't think you give yourself enough credit. :)
Your stuff is certainly good enough to be charging for.
