How to start doin commissions
Edit: This tutorial covers aspects related only to your Deviantart gallery and Deviantart Journal. It has nothing to do with the Deviantart's newly implemented points commission system. You can take commissions without using that points system on Deviantart as long as you have paypal.
When you have enough watchers and people interested in your art.
When you have a closely-bounded community around your work/gallery
How many is enough I can't say for sure, because it depends on the community around you and your work. Some artists can live on one patron, others need to live on millions of them.
For DA, I would say typically around 20,000-40,000 pageviews, at least 40-50 watchers on your DA is best before you start considering taking commissions, (because out of that 40-50, you may have 1 person willing to pay, a safer bet is 100 people.) however, if your gallery has explosiv

Happy march 20th to all you deviant artists, it is the first day of spring!  Which doesn't mean a whole lot besides the days are getting longer and sunnier.  Here where I live, we are still experiencing snow.  But I sure have caught the planting  bug, because I have several plants started on my windowsill.

Last month I didn't make a journal, but joy of joys!  My dip pen nibs finally came in the mail!  I ordered the Zebra G nibs from, and they are amazing.  I have posted a couple of illustrations already; most notable being the Lupins and Wisteria.  I am really impressed with them.  If you have any particular content that you would like to see from me using a dip pen nib, please make a comment below!

For anyone interested in using their own materials, I found a really cool (and interesting) 30 Day Drawing Challenge
on the Umami Design Studio Blog by Kevin White and Alysha Lach.  I like the ideas on this one more so than other drawing challenges I see, because there's more room for creativity as opposed the the "draw a cat.  draw your favourite meal." style ones.  At least in my opinion, it is better to draw your subject doing SOMETHING rather than just...standing there...doing NOTHING. Maybe I've put too much though into it.

Check out more of my art on Tumblr , PaigeeWorld , and Instagram
Find me and follow me, if you like!  Tell me about yourself!
