So this isn't something I've only recently thought about because as you all know the saying "you are your own worst critic" but sometimes it's very easy to get stuck in your own head and lose a sense of perspective even if you know what is true you may not feel it to be true. It's kindof a weird vague thing to ask but I was wondering what you guys think of my art and ideas? Like if anyone has anything they dislike or think could be better, or think I should ditch completely or stop doing etc. I want to hear it. I know my writing is pretty rough but are the ideas at all interesting? Are my designs interesting? Am I spending too much time focussing on creating pictures that relate to one another or should I be more explorative?  If anyone has ANY critiques I really want to hear it. I'm not looking for praise or any sort of positive affirmation but rather hard advice. If anyone has any to give send me a note!

THANKS!

I am, though I'm only doing professional ones. I've gotten lots of people asking for like 30 to 50 dollars for a picture, which in the past when i was in school and working I wouldn't have minded, but these days I need money badly. I don't think my creative mind could take another stint at a regular job so I'm really trying to make this freelance thing work. I would ask what you had in mind anyway, but it wouldn't matter, right at the moment I have a lot of pictures to do :(

That's very understandable, and I hope your freelance career works out for you, your work looks beautiful, atmospheric and quite unique from what I usually see out there. :) 30 or 50 is a pretty low amount, so with that in mind, I hope I'm not coming off pressure-y by asking if a higher offer would make a difference? I think my own offer would have been anything between 40 to maybe 150 euro, and what I'm after is a nice, rendered piece of a character, possibly some simple background and props. I draw myself, though I like seeing different portrayals in different styles :)

Well, what I generally am looking for more along the lines of 500 to 1000 dollars haha. BUT keep in mind these are for illustrations that are used as book/comic covers etc. Marketing stuff you know? and they usually involve a lot of back and forth communication. I take it that's not what you're going for. 

What character did you have in mind? I could do something like themichaelmacrae.deviantart.co… relatively quickly.

I was trying to understand why you wrote "I am a" and then I saw "male/turkey" and I thought it was hilarious.

I can't tell you how many people actually think I'm from turkey.

Maybe it's because it says you're from Turkey...
