I don't like them. 

That is not a bottom line, that is my take on asking me to do something with no payment involved. And by payment i mean real world money, not deviantart points.

I dont rightly know what i would do with deviant art points. Ask for commisions from other artists i suppose, but im not sure how i feel about giving other artists basically nothing. an 80 to 1 ratio for a dollar is pretty steep, plus they would then be in a simiilar position. What would they do with it? 

A better question is how i feel about art trades. I like them BETTER but im still not sure about them. Plus only one person has ever really offered and he left deviantart!

Now we come to a header though....would i do commissions for people to improve my artwork? And by this i mean, if someone took the time to ink a drawing for me, would i do a sketch for them? The answer? no bleeding idea. I have come to the realization that the hardest part about trying to transfer things to digital....has been trying to ink my drawings and white out all the roughage and dust that tends to accumulate on them. I'm too methodical, too careful. Watching live streams of other people blazing through inking their drawings makes me realize my own limitations and that while i am perfectly capable of inking my drawings, it takes me much longer to ink something then to color something. But that same methodical part of me quails at having someone else touch my work. I have also tried to experiment with people working on my things, but up till now i have only had two people actually manage to repay me with an inking.I liked how one turned out, and definitely did not like the other.

So im considering....something. Lets call it an Ink call. Like a booty call but for inking. If your willing to put time and energy into my drawings, i would like to reward you with a sketch, but im hesitant to just make this an open call. SO instead, why not make a competition out of it? 

If enough people are interested I will


2) Come up with official rules for a competition involving inking a drawing of mine, and in return reward the winner or winners with some initial drawings that i am keeping off the interweb, and the right to get more drawings for inkings that i would ask for( at least 10 people need to show interest here for this to be worth while).

3) Take point commissions (this one will take a tad more effort on your guys part. I will need to see a lot of support for points for that to go through)

4) Nothing special happening because no one responds, or only like 2 people respond.

I'm really off and on about drawing stuff, but when i do decide to work on something it turns out better then it should for an amatuer.
