2011-04-19 [Nioniel]: This is very useful. *like*
2011-04-20 [Ghost the Hybrid]: i really like this part of the wiki, it's really helpful. i do crochet myself, but i'm still learning.
as for leather i only know that it is kinda expensive to buy where i live.
2011-04-21 [Nioniel]: Do you have an idea on prices for actual physical paintings? I got a commision for a painting and I feel that I'm charging very little for it, so it would be cool to know what I should, or could, charge in the future for my works. :)
2011-04-22 [Aeolynn]: Hmm... well you would have to take into account the price of the paint, and the price/size of the canvas. Those are difficult to judge...
How large is the canvas? And can I see an example of your work?
2011-04-22 [Nioniel]: As soon as I either get on a better computer or ET decides to let me start uploading photos, I'll be able to get some WIPs and finished paintings up. Until then, sadly, I cannot.
I'm currently doing a commision for a friend. He wanted an 11x14 canvas painting of his girlfriend's dog done. I already had most of the paints I needed, but had to buy the canvas and a few extra tubes, which ran me about $50. The most he was willing to spend was $100, so I'm only really making $50 on it, but I figured that even a cheap commision was better than none.
I'd have liked to have charged at least $200 for the project, but I wasn't sure if it was too much.
2011-04-22 [Aeolynn]: sounds like 150-200 would be appropriate. I would like to see the final product! :)
2011-04-22 [Nioniel]: Thanks. :) I'm sure I'll upload photos once I'm able to.
2011-04-22 [Ghost the Hybrid]: i'd like to do amigurumi(in my case crochet stuffed toys) commissions but there's 3 problems. the first is i don't really get too much money in the first place so i can't buy yarn when ever i want to. the second is i'm still learning so i can't do big projects yet and the last problem is that i don't really know what the price should be. any one that at least have any suggestions for things that are 10-30cm(4-12inches i think) tall amigurumi?
2011-04-23 [Aeolynn]: I would think 15-20 dollars, depends on if its 4" or 12" as you said
2011-04-23 [Ghost the Hybrid]: actually i can show you some pictures of some of the things i've done if you want to see them? if you just give me a day or two, and one of the things that probably looks the simplest was the hardest thing to make cause i had to make up the pattern as i went^^'
2011-04-23 [Aeolynn]: sure :)
2011-04-23 [Ghost the Hybrid]: i'll get to it tomorrow then since it's past midnight where i am
