Artist Alley 101: The Basics/Applying for a Table
Artist Alley 101: A Practical and Fun Guide to Selling Your Art at Conventions
Hello everyone! After being a member of several artist alleys for many years, I thought I should share my knowledge with you in a practical and (hopefully) fun guide!
This is meant to be a good start for those who have never been a part of an artist alley before, as well as a nice refresher to those of you who are veterans of alleys everywhere! I will try to be as detailed as possible while making the information easy to reference and read through!
I will be submitting this in parts with links to the previous and next parts. I also am working on getting more pictures up so you can have visual references as well!
Hope you enjoy, and feedback is definitely appreciated! Let me know your thoughts, reactions, some of your own alley stories, as well as suggestions I can add! I definitely haven't thought of everything, so if you have new ideas to share, I'd love to hear them!
Let's get started!

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 IS THE BEST TIME TO START
--------------------------------------
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

Cold, rain, cold rain, those sunny, warm days have been rather sparse this month.  On the up side, however, I have an incubator running with several chicken eggs in it!!  I'm hoping at least one hatches.  The hatch date is the 27th.  I have candled a few eggs, and the veins are forming!  So exciting!

As far as art goes I have hit some creative constipation... The only picture I am proud of this moth is the hummingbird painting using a print-friendly palette.  A good place to go to next would probably be some brand design.  After all these illustrative pieces, I really should bulk up my layout and character design folders.  No rest for a portfolio-builder.

Check out more of my art on Tumblr , PaigeeWorld , and Instagram
