    Hi guys!

    Okay, real quick question for all you artists out there who take up commissions. How do you get started?

    I'm considering taking commissions for pencil portraits (only considering), and I don't know where to start! I mean, how do you price them? How do you send it to the customer (what kind of post and stuff)? Plus, I have no previous professional experience, if that should affect anything.

    I really don't mean to promote my work or anything, just need a general opinion on how much you would charge for something like this, and on what basis:
