Its something on the back of my mind cause i gotta pay for college stuff but i wanna hold off on that until i get proper art supplies since all i use is a pen and pencil. But yeah if i get the proper art pens and markers then i can make proper quality stuff and id consider opening up for commissions and selling prints. Its only on the back of my mind because then itd feel like a job and itd be not as fun but yeah its something im considering in the near future!
Sold one of my shark prints in an art gallery for about $200 and all i used was a Bic red and black pens. supplies dont make the artist, the talent does.
Good point, i just wanna feel like its the best it can look before i consider it worthy to sell ;_;
guess from one designer/artist to another, i guess what i learned over the years is that if you are in love with what you created then you cant get any higher quality out of it. Take a moment and let that perfectionist side of you (its in all of us artists) and quiet it down. If you love that piece after you have set aside your perfectionist trait, the quality will never succeed that. I wish part of me knew that a few years ago cause id be either popular in the art scene or making a decent living of designing. Idk its something i learned recently and man, idk the work i put out is tenfold in quality compared to what i was doing 2 years ago.
