Post subject:  Commission painting questions

So, I see the thread up there for a few people offering it, albeit a wee time ago. I suppose my questions are, does it happen often? That is, do they get much work? I remember seeing one nz painter on facebook that was booked months in advance, but he was an absolutely gorgeous painter. I'm tempted to through my hat into the ring for commission painting, but I'm a much lower standard, so my next question would be would this be worth it for anything?

There is definitely a market for good tabletop standard as opposed to display standard in NZ.
Comes down to how fast you can paint as to whether its viable as an earner. More so if you're including assembly and prep in the cost. Most commission painters offer different levels eg basic, character etc. Check out their sites for what they charge for standard of painting and that should give you an idea if its viable for too.

There is a local market for Historical Figures.
I get figures painted in Auckland, Christchurch, Scotland and lately, Spain.

Man, I can't help but feel that it's a sweatshop from the picture they had in the FAQ. I guess if it is a sweatshop, they'll get a good grasp of heraldry and military history.

Check out ZAK in the Commission Painting Folder, a great Spanish 'One Man Band', no sweat there as you pay in Euros.
