I would be open to a commission, yes. Sadly I can't do requests anymore because of my full time working schedule and the comic projects I collaborate on, but paid commissions are always given time on the schedule, there's information on that here: kaijukid.deviantart.com/journa… And thank you, this was one of my favorite pics for the new movie
These art pieces don't just make themselves. The artist has to spend many mutiple hours, sometimes days, to produce a good piece. Time is money, it's not fair to expect an artist to just "make art" of higher caliber for free, but people often assume they can just pump out stuff like magic. Artists need to make a living with the skill set they have, too, and it's only fair and decent to pay people who draw a picture for you the same way you'd pay your plumber or your mechanic for taking the time out of their day to do you a service.
No, it's fine. it's just kind of common I'm finding for a lot of people to think the art pieces are either easy to do, but the main thing is just the time commitment, especially for those of us still taking classes and working full time. I like working on lots of things and I do wish I could take requests, it's just not possible with time crunches
