Also, I really want to do custom orders as well, but i don't know how to go about that. any tips on how much i should charge, what i should do to get customers/clients, and if i should meet the client for a consultation?
You can sell your artwork online on websites like: http://funadvice.com/r/14q5k07gatn or http://funadvice.com/r/3js7uv48jn If you don't want to sell online, set up at small studio somewhere. Advertise your work in your neighborhood to start off with by putting ads in newspaper, sending out fliers,etc. When you have a few customers, then think of expanding your business. For the charges, you can compare your art to something similar. Find a artwork which shares the same technique you used in yours and see the price of it. Depending on the creativity and effort put into the picture, you can then judge. Your prices can range from any price you want. It is best to consult a client because you can explain whatever they may need to know. Its going to be you'd buisness afterall though so go with what you prefer.
Thank you very much! I greatly appreciate it!!
