Hi guys.

Lately I have been thinking of other ways I could earn money. 

Unfortunately, I don't think I'd do illustration commission anymore as the income is just not worth it. With my "style", I could probably only charge 50$ max. Compare it to logo designers, who can already make up to 200$ per logo at an entry level. And I assure you, we would spend the exact same amount of time for each piece. (except for fussy clients, but for them you'd charge hourly).

So I'm thinking, since I have been specializing in animation anyways, what about an animation commission? I've gotten used to it to the point that I can make it as easily as I make a full illustration, yet it will be logical to charge more for it as it is technically multiple images. 

However I have not seen a single animation commission happening, at least in DA that I know of. So I just try to figure out what the rates should be. I figured the fairest way to price of an animation is to price per frame, by that I mean each frame where the picture changes. Because if you know animation, a duration never have a set amount of frames - a second of animation can have either 24, 12, 8, or even 4 frames - not to mention held frames.

So say, for lineart only, I'd charge 10$ per frame. For basic flat color (and some cel shade) 20$, for fully painterly rendered, 30$ per frame. Now to make the prices clear, let's take some example from my gallery....

ZOMG RUN by RadenWA
This loop of a running wolf boy actually only consists of 8 frames. If this was lineart, it will only cost 80$! This example is fully painterly rendered tho, so it actually costs 240$. By then I barely compete with an entry-level freelancer graphic designer.

Another, bigger example would be this:
Epik Punch by RadenWA
Try to guess? It actually only consists of 25 frames. It goes longer because at the end he is just standing there with camera shake and wind loop. As it is rendered painterly, it does cost a whooping 750$. But had it been lineart, it'd be 250$, or cel shade, 500$

Though, I don't think anyone would be so bold to commission more than like 10 frames of loop. Looping animation goes a long way and can be used in games, website design and anything that facilitates gif.

I would have to also factor character complexity.....a blob or a cupcake hopping around definitely shouldn't cost that much to be animated in full painterly color. Background should be fine if it is static or just panned, but if it is animated, then it should be paid separately.

So now I just wonder, would this be viable? Is it fair? I understand this pricing will scare most of you, heck, it scares ME! Paying 500$ for a single artwork, I can never picture even myself doing that! But then remember most of us are all teen to young adults with monetary limitations. But there might be a very few amongst us who are more monetarily talented and find these prices fair? Though whether it's fair or not, more importantly - 


Would anyone even be interested in commissioning me like this?


I understanding that drawing animu stuff will lead you to nothing but monetary disappointment, but right now I'm just trying to figure out whether it is actually possible or not to actually make decent money out of this skill I have. At the end, obviously I am ready to leave behind all this passion and get into graphic design or VFX which, even at the lowest level will still obviously pay much much better than whatever I struggle to make right now.

Maxie is a disgrace to science nerds everywhere by RadenWA
Maxie is a disgrace to science nerds everywhere
I am pretty sure this has been pointed out before, I am sure there's already a comic of this, BUT I AM MAKING ONE ANYWAYS.

Seriously, I can understand a group of rugged pirates for not knowing the science of water cycle, but for Team Magma, which looks so calculated and scientific in the surface, not knowing about global warming is really dumb.

Again, I prolly should've submitted this 6 montsh ago when ORAS was still a thing.

GUESS WHO by RadenWA
GUESS WHO
Hint: These gijinkas are over half a year late. 

Just uploading their flat color for now because I know that with my masochistic perfectionist tendency it's gonna take a while until they are "finished" in all my unnecessarily detailed and photorealistic standard.

Jk two of them has been done actually but considering how long it takes to start on the third one it will also take a while to finish it.

I suppose this makes an okay wallpaper, just set it to "Fit to Screen" and pick a suitable background color! (I use black)

Ragnarok Online - Hazy Forest by RadenWA
Ragnarok Online - Hazy Forest
Hazy forest is one of the new and most popular dungeons in Ragnarok Online these days. Aside from being the only way to access a city, it is also where a couple of lucrative quests takes place. And not to mention IT'S A MAZE OF HUGE ASS BRANCHES FLOATING IN A STYLISH INDIGO VOID GOD KNOWS WHAT WILL HAPPEN IF YOU FALL TO!

Featured in this pic are Warlock (Wizard 3rd), Royal Guard (Crusader 3rd), Ranger (Hunter 3rd) and Shadow Chaser (Rogue 3rd). Unfortunately, Warlocks can't actually float in-game. Though, doesn't his pose look familiar?

Also those glowy bits are not actually stars. Since this dungeon is located in the fairy world, it just has all these sparkle fairy dust thingy floating around everywhere, and that's how they really look in-game. I even have a suspicion that the game designers are actually using exact same default Photoshop brush that I use here....

So I'm thinking that the dungeon name is misleading because the forest isn't hazy in any way. They probably should rename it to "Sparkle Forest". Or, oh, how about "Pretty Twinkly Fairy Dust Sparkle Maze of DOOM"!!

Yes it is kinda wallpaper-sized and can be used as such if you please.

Aren't we all too busy and occupied to be drawing? So how do you keep producing stuffs?

35 deviants said I wait until I get to specific days when I can go all out and work for like 7 hours straight. I just can't work bit by bit, it's hard to get the mood right.
39%
29 deviants said I always make sure that I can spare as little as an hour to draw, every day, amongst my study/work and recreations.
15%
11 deviants said I am a superhuman that does not need recreational activities (that includes reading, watching and gaming). That is why I always have time to produce and practice.

Hi, welcome to my little own world of adventure, awesomeness, and occasionally, tentacles and slimes.

Adventure animes, cartoons, comics and RPG games have made up my childhood and it is my biggest influence even until now as I develop my personal style and experiment with many other varieties of art and design.

Got a question: how's the Pokémon Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire (which one do you have?) game you've been playing? Have you got Mega Rayquaza yet? That's my favourite Pokémon.

Also, who was your favourite Pokémon trainer/Gym Leader in that game?
