Are you Open for Commissions?

Newgrounds has been getting an influx of new artists this month! Please read this welcome post if you are new here.

I also recommend reading the Newgrounds History to better understand the site.

At the moment we're wrapping up a big forum update but we're also knocking out small items to better support incoming artists.

Open for Commissions

If you visit your user page you will notice a new "Open for Commissions?" link under your icon and short description.

Clicking this link will present you with a list of commission-related blog posts you've made, so that you can link one as your official commission sheet.

When enabled, visitors to your page will see an "Open for Commissions!" link.

There are lots of little things that could be done in this space but we're trying to not to over-think it at the moment. Let us know if you run into problems / confusion / bugs with how the new system works.

We'll soon generate a list anyone can browse to see who is open for commission.

Other pending updates will help in this space, too. For example right now you can't make a blog post via mobile (sorry, old text editor) but that will be fixed in the near future.

When we migrate Art publishing into the Project System, we'll introduce co-authoring and the ability for both commissioner and artist to share credit on a piece.

We'll also likely add an "Open for Collaboration" link if you have an entry in the Collabinator.

Still planning out things like multi-image art entries, full art pieces in feeds, tag suggestions and multi-tag search, all high priorities.

$9,999.99 for a stick figure portrait?! Sounds like a deal if I ever heard one.

I like to be ready if @SouljaBoy rolls through.

This is sweet. I remember a while back I wanted to support some people and look around to see who's open for commissions. I had to go to their profile and dig through twitter and other websites and whatnot, it was a bit of a hassle. Now it's eaasy. NG steppin up

Yes, my begging thorughout 2017 and 2018 is paying off!

Very nice initiative on the Art Portal, guys!
It's gonna get even better, I'm pretty hyped.

Sadly I'm only open for emissions right now.
Could this be used to open Requests? I notice there's a page with that name but I'm not sure what it does.

It would be better if you had the option to remove the link, since not everyone can produce content...


Moving on and looking forward...

Well now, this is certainly a welcome addition. Gonna have to set mine up at some point.

Response to Are you Open for Commissions? 2018-12-11 18:31:31


what can you do for 2$ my boy


I've been here for years since this place first opened up with just the telebubbies back when I was in high school and now, finally now, I just posted my first submission like an hour ago... and now Tom wants to know if I'm open for commissions?!
Spooky.

Sure, I'll do commissions if you have any female models who will pose nude and are willing to get drunk after.

This is a really cool addition actually! I was telling my friends about this on my FB and they seem to also like this addition! I can't wait for even more additions being made.

Thank you so much for this!!! You have no idea how much this will help! Or maybe you do, but either way, this is going to help me and others a lot. Thank you so much.

This is just completely awesome! You guys really know how to support your fans and fellow artists. I love this place. Keep up the great work!

Response to Are you Open for Commissions? 2018-12-11 18:49:49


This is actually very cool!! Thank you! I just saw it and tried. In fact, I thought before about advertising my commissions on a personal post (I forgot how they were called lol) and I also got pleasantly surprised: I can submit pictures directly x'D That way I don't have to submit it as a piece. I already was thinking about getting a link from imgur, but this is so much better.

(I can imagine that the picture thing was even older than the commission thing, but I just wanted to make a comment about how happy I was when I found out lmao).

Response to Are you Open for Commissions? 2018-12-11 18:57:35


Huh. This is cool. I like that there is a place to do this stuff, now. Can't set up any payment options for myself right now, so no commissions, I'd imagine... but... this is a good thing.

Also I fail at business-y things. Been writing for 25 years, unpublished; still can't make sense of the business end. Need a keeper.

I CAN write a mean drabble/rough draft/rough script, though, when my brain doesn't feel like Ortolan Bunting.

Hey Tom I found an interesting quirk, on the Establish Commission Status window, the little X button in the corner does nothing but clicking outside of the window works. Someone has probably beaten me to this but I thought it'd be good to let you know!

Response to Are you Open for Commissions? 2018-12-11 19:54:07


Aw heck yeah, it's like a dream come true! I wanted to post my commission info here a long time ago, but there was no way to pin it and I wasn't sure if people would be interested just in the first place.

Just so I'm understanding what this is, could we say it's like a more versatile version of Fiverr?

I can easily see it be used for such. We're a creative bunch; let's take what we have and make-do with it! :B
