    Default Drawing commissions - Help

    Hello guys, my girlfriend is looking for a site to do drawing commissions, would anyone have anything that comes to mind? Thank you for the help.

    Edit: It'd help if someone already did drawing commissions and is familiar with this business.

    DeviantArt is the best place to start. Simply have her upload her Portfolio and more than likely people will begin stumbling across her work and eventually, if it's decent enough, she'll begin getting requests and (hopefully) commissions.

    It all starts with a portfolio and making it easily available for people to view.

    Personally, most of the artists I know got in contact with a majority of their commissions via word-of-mouth thanks to family and friends who had contacts in businesses and whatnot.

    You could talk to xDrac here on OnRPG (tho idk if he's still active). He does webdesign and I believe he's based off of DeviantArt. Link. Oddly enough, I've been apart of two guilds that have commissioned xDrac to do their webdesign. Didn't find out until after the fact, either, even though I've known xDrac from here for quite some time.

    Okay, we made a DeviantArt and uploaded some of her art from her Portfolio, thank you for the tips .
