Venom Painting

Finished this acrylic painting today. It was a commissioned project, and I'm glad to be done after a month. I'm ready to move on to other work. We did 25% up front fee with my rough sketches as a guide, and 75% upon completion. I usually do 50/50, but I knew her, and I only needed enough money up front for a few new paints and a canvas.  
Note to new artists doing commissions: Always factor in your need for new tools and equipment on top of your estimated hours of work on the project, multiplied by your worth per hour.
  • For example: ( Estimated 8 hours of work x $20 per hour rate ) + $20 canvas + $20 new tubes of paint = $200
