I was approached by the founder of a commissions company called ArtCorgi, which has gone live today.

This is what ArtCorgi is all about to those interested: 

  • ArtCorgi wants it to be easier for everyday people to commission people from up-and-coming artists
  • They also want artists to be paid fairly for their work and not have to compete with lower and lower prices (which is a BIG DEAL for me!) 
  • ArtCorgi is designed to facilitate art commissions
  • Artists list different styles of commissions they offer with set prices, which enables clients to purchase commissions right away
  • Artists set turnaround times, minimum list prices, allowable subjects, and maximum orders that can be taken at one time for every style of commission they feature on the site
  • ArtCorgi handles marketing, client communication, contracts, and payment (and take a 20% cut to do so)
  • They give pieces prices ranging from $50 to $500
  • They’re launching with only a small group of artists so that they can give them more attention

And I was one of them! I was so excited and disbelieving when I was approached. I didn’t think my work was good enough to warrant any professional attention.

So what does this mean for you guys? 

1. My commissions page is being replaced with links to my ArtCorgi site.
2. If you are an artist who is offering commissions, I’d contact ArtCorgi and apply there. If we can get everyone going to ArtCorgi, artists will no longer be competing with each other with ridiculously low prices! This has always been a problem for me, because, look at artists. We spend YEARS learning what we do! YEARS! We deserve to be paid more than 5$ a sketch, and the reason why we’re pricing ourselves so low is because A. everyone is doing it, and B. no one is experienced enough in buying art to know what we’re really worth. 
3. Spread the word about ArtCorgi if you can. I think it’s a great idea with a great goal but it won’t work without us making sure the artist and client community knows about it! Even if you’re not an artist or client, signal boosting this or making a post about ArtCorgi will help every artist on the site, plus the developers who worked hard to make it.
4. Yes, my commissions are pricier over there, but I do feel like this is a good thing for me to do. 

If you are a personal friend of mine, I will still offer commissions for my lower prices, but you’ll have to ask for them. As of now I’ll only be accepting them through ArtCorgi for anyone else interested.

Thank you everyone for your attention. Have a great day, and don’t forget to hug someone today.

Hey.... can I have a tutorial on how to draw poses where necks aren't showing or when an arm is getting in the middle of the pose? I'd like to know how to draw shrugging shoulders as well.
