So I've been thinking about making some interesting offers commission-wise. Of course, I could just continue to do commissions as I do them now and I'm enjoying that, but once I finish my current list I would like to do something special for a while, or offer a special as an extra. I could use your help to perfect some basic ideas I've got. If you think they're rubbish don't hesitate to tell me either, heh. Mostly though I'd just like to hear what you think of them and if you think something would make them better or more interesting, please share.
25 full-color busts - $75-$100 each.
Pro: Fun portrait and color exercise. Not too big so it doesn't get boring.
Con: Possibly too expensive, but I can't really sink below $75.
50 full-body sketches - $25 each.
Pro: Quick, good gesture exercise, doesn't get boring if enough variety in character is offered.
Con: Need to do many for it to be really profitable, could get too much.
Your Soundtrack Design - $50-$75
Explanation: You send me a song you like, along with three key words that may be anything (animals, colors, personality traits) and I give you a full color speedpainting of whatever comes to my mind when I combine those four things.
Pro: Lots of fun, quite relaxing for me, surprise element for the commissioner.
Con: Surprise may also be negative, not certain of the enthusiasm and possibly too expensive.
Your Mythological Creature - $50-$75
Explanation: You describe your personality to me in five key words and give me your favorite color. I will then pick whichever (existing) mythological animal suits you best and implement your color into the design. Final images will be sketchy with flat colors or colors with hints of shadow.
Pro: Again lots of fun, surprise element for the commissioner, transparent images can be used.
Con: Same as soundtrack design.
I had more ideas, but most of them are unfinished. I would be most interested to hear any and all ideas you have, they could be based on mine or something entirely different that you feel should really be done :>. Let me know, I'm looking forward to reading your comments!
