Default Offering digital dog portraits!

Hi I've gotten back into drawing recently and I'm hurting for money until I start my new job, so I thought I'd offer portraits to Chazzers. My style is cartoony rather than realistic. Here's an example of a random red tri Aussie:



Right now I'm only offering cell-shaded busts like that, rather than full body - my anatomy skills are a bit rusty so I'm still working on getting those up to par I'm not sure on price - I'm thinking $10 each but I'm open to discussion on that. It's purely digital - there's no piece to mail to you, although if you wanted a print we could probably work something out.

I haven't had much practice with curly fur or heavily wrinkled dogs, but otherwise I'm open to any breed! I should have more examples up soon.

Thanks for looking!

I'd love one of each of my dogs. Plus helping a Chazzer out when I can is something I try to do.

THAT IS ADORABLE!

I hope you'll be offering these for a while. I get tax money in a couple weeks...

Thanks, guys! If you're interested can you go ahead and send me a PM with a couple of pics and a brief description of their personality? I feel like I "know" a lot of Chaz dogs but I want to make sure I use the appropriate expressions and stuff

Sael, I'll probably keep this open for a while! Right now I'm in a tight spot, but I love drawing so if anyone is interested I'd be happy to keep doing pictures

It's a good starting point, IMO, depending on how long it takes you.



I admit it's a bit of a sore spot for me. Being on DeviantArt and other art sites for so many years and seeing artists with ten times my ability charging pennies for their work, and then clients balking at my prices because I'm actually earning an hourly wage with it. Art is worth paying for!

Totally, my sister used to sell art on deviantart/dog sim sites, it's cringeworthy how little quality art sells for on those.
