(My last attempt at drawing in ink for Inktober. As you can see, I didn’t get too far. And sorry, but I don’t remember what kind of flower it was. Drawn with a micron pen.)

Asked my art teacher the other day what I should ask if I were to start doing pet portraits in charcoal for people. (I can do them pretty quickly, especially if I use the same process as the lion I drew in our last class, which I'll post online at some point when I can get a good photo.) She said that I should start at $40.

I'm all for artists getting paid what they deserve, but that seems high. Of course, that's for a charcoal picture (specialized equipment) and a hard copy, so she was probably assuming local people. Graphite would be cheaper, and digital copies cheaper still, I imagine. Maybe twenty for a graphite sketch on a digital copy, twenty-five for a scanned charcoal sketch or a hard copy of a graphite sketch.

I don't know. What's your opinion, do you think people would pay for that? My traditional art folder is here, and the more recent stuff IS a lot better than the older sketches. I'd just have to find the right audience somehow, people who would actually like my drawings and be okay with paying for pictures of their pets.
