It's probably because your style is narrow. XD;;;; Not a lot of people find it to their tastes.

Probably because the variety and interest within each piece is low. Your style doesn't make people want to stare at the picture for a long time, which in commissions, is usually a big selling point. There's a lot of ways to achieve that sort of effect but it's up to each person how that style is executed. While this is totally okay if you're drawing for yourself, drawing for others needs to be filled with consideration for others, so understanding what they want to see, then following that, is kind of important. o ^o; That's probably how I can best explain it without going into tiny details.

oh that...well that happens after I meet a commissioner...but what I'm doing here is the thing called..."Mass Commissioning"...its a way in which you get others to buy the stuff you make in your own way with the motto"My way or No way"....

Aaaaaand that's probably why. That only works if you have a style that appeals to the Masses (thus it's called Mass Commissioning). Your style is narrow. It attracts only a small amount of people, and then those people have to do it "your way or no way," making the audience size pretty small. People are willing to pay virtual money for it but not real money for it because the amount of enjoyment (called "utility" in economics class) is too low.

While I've seen people be successful with your strategy, they often have styles that appeals to a lot more people to begin with. In other words, the style considers the customers already.

No matter what, doing commissions is a "service" (if you look at business tax forms, you might see a question like "how much have you earned this year from goods or services?") The end product is the "good" but the process by which that end product arrives is a "service. "That's why consideration towards others, an aspect important to giving good service, is necessary.

While it's up to you whether or not you follow it, of course, you did ask how to get commissions. XD and I DID tell you strategies that have worked for other people that might work for you.

"what I wana get is how can I gain commissions" is what you said => rini-tan.deviantart.com/journa…

So think on it for a few more days before dismissing it completely, okay? o uo You don't have to follow all of it, but some of it can come in handy in the future, if not now.

It rocks :D Good Job! I just can't stop loving your style of coloring. I still try to learn without black (not even the linework) and I did it on paper , but still can't do it when I draw with tablet (linework i mean) ^-^' when i try to do it it looks faded and on yours it looks perfect. I hope I do it someday with practicing :')
