I'm open for music commissions. Since I've never done anything of the sort (only worked on my own terms), I think this might be interesting. The reason for this is that I've kind of hit a low in my music drive, and I want to pick myself up. Or rather, I get the ideas but I'm way too apathetic/lethargic to get it out. This seems like the way to go right now.
For people that haven't seen my output so far, I've done a good number of electronic things. You can check it out at http://www.youtube.c...zuremakingsound or http://www.azuresound.net .
I'm thinking about doing the first track (regardless of length) for 30$ and the rest for 40$. You can request prefered samples and genre if you want, or any other guideline that comes to mind, but I might deviate a little from them. I'll do it in a matter of hours/days, and if I don't, I'll give you your money back.
That's it! If you feel like having a track made for yourself, then say it.

I dunno why but I've done a flyer/pamphlet thing and added it to the site. I think secretly my brain is trying to make me look more professional... Since the site doubles as a graphic dump and a place for people who might be interested in commissioning, I kinda wish I had something else to show. Almost everything I've ever done is themed around characters or other music artists - I realize these days that doesn't translate very well in a graphics portfolio. For better or for worse people who will pay for graphics are of a business/formal mindset and that saddens me because I think my work excels most with things that are colorful and more busy-looking. On the other hand, churning out graphics for such a demographic is almost mechanical, it is less an artistic endeavor and more of a technician's process.
People are looking for websites, or buttons, charts, manuals, logos, etc, GraphicRiver is a great example. Making a living out of graphics is not easy as one would expect from any art, but even moreso when working with graphic design. There are basically two ways of interpreting it. I prefer to work with graphics on a more artistic end (use illustrations and whatnot) rather than doing professional stuff. It is hard enough to get by doing the professional oriented kind, let alone going about it as I do, which is basically the tag-making process. Pick a character and then make a thing out of it. Making graphics in such a way is simply not viable on its own. Have you ever heard of a professional tag-maker? Or someone who does banners for a living? No, such is usually coupled with web design, a thing that I dislike more by the minute, because it's a downpour of BORING. Even though I like the outcome of it I dislike every minute until I get there, which is usually spent typing code. I do not enjoy the process at all and, even though I can make it, I would much prefer not to.
I have come to accept that working with graphics alone will not make things any easier for me, and even though I'd like to keep doing it I have to branch out, to things I'd rather not.
With that being said, even though I made a flyer it still has placeholder drawings, so much for nothing. Maybe I should eventually switch them for a real stock or something more human.
I wish one would have less trouble pursuing graphic design. I don't even like selling myself. Pursuing a career in arts often includes a lot of self-advertising, such as having a bustling facebook and a myriad of accounts in sites I don't have the mindset to use. I have trouble at getting myself "out there", it's just not in me. On top of having a portfolio that is made of tags, posters and banners, nobody knows me, so that doesn't go my way either. Oh well.

Its just a thought, but what about designing prints for shirts, posters, and other fan related material here on VO? I've noticed a lot of popular web-Communities do this sort of stuff. And with VO being as active as it is, im sure someone here would love to have a VO t-shirt. Have you ever considered drawing up a Mascot/s for VO?
I imagine it probably wouldn't be very profitable, but it would be an extra source of income. And another way to promote the site.
You could probably even organize a Monthly/Quarterly VO CD! Which includes music made from the members here, not to mention your art style would look great on a CD.
