took a few pictures today, and decided to upload a few. 
I would love to get some critique. 
oh my dear friends and followers, this girl is so tired. 
 Why is this such a hard thing to do? I try to price my portraits based on the amount of time it takes to paint them. On Average this takes about 15 hours. At $8 an hour this puts me at a base price of $120 and I always offer to work with people, I'm easy to haggle with, honestly :noes:.
 Is that too much? I personally [being the artist] do not feel like it is too much to ask, yet I can not seem to get any Commissions. I've only done ONE in the last several months. I have a FB page where I try to advertise sometimes, but my main focus has been here on dA. 
 Does anyone have any advice? Is it too pricey? Am I just advertising in all the wrong places? I'm at a loss and it's starting to war on my confidence in my art. :/
here are a few examples of my work:

The Ecstasy of Gold by SquirrelyToddRhoad Rhave by SquirrelyToddZippos Sensation by SquirrelyTodd

what size canvas should I be working on for proper prints? I've had one complaint about the portrait on the left not printing clearly.

:new: I have created a folder for deviations that will be deleted! :new:

I've said it before and never went through with it, but this time I am very serious, and it's going to happen. 
If you want to keep your commissions and gifts etc, you need to go through my gallery and upload it to your own account. Just link it back to me in the comments for credit. 
Starting next week I AM going to go through the ENTIRE gallery and Delete MOST everything. 
A few things will be pulled over to Svartalv, but for the most part i'm just going to delete everything. 

the Coloring Book will stay though <3 that will forever be available for you guys. I need to add some more to it.

Please please please collect your art.

<3 love,
