In chronological order from left to right are my newest to oldest pieces that I feel may be 'sale worthy'.  Personally, I notice that the oldest piece here still lacks in depth/contrast though I think I've achieved the ethereal textures that I'd aimed for.  

The 2nd piece is where it finally clicked for me regarding how to paint glass-like eyes and have ethereal/soft textures with better depth. 

The newest piece takes what I learned from the 2nd piece and applies color, since it was much easier to practice depth and softness with grey tones.  I feel like the face is still a little off with this one though.  But if you'll notice, a large emphasis in what I'm gathering is my sense of style is soft textures/skin or very gentle shades/tones/overall painting.  I feel that when I paint my personal goal is to achieve as soft textures as possible while also maintaining sharp and distinct enough details, thus balancing smoothness/softness with clearly defined objects/articles/parts (or what have you). My task is to maintain depth where the overall subject is still clear as this is something I struggle with.  I'm glad to say I've come a long way from relying on lines to dictate where/how I shade and color but I also recognize I still have more to learn regarding depth/composition and light-sources.  

I'm trying to see first: Is my art sale worthy?
2nd: What would be fair prices to sell such quality of art for? (each of these pieces took perhaps in total 5 hours+?) Especially considering that I'm new to commissions and have never sold art before.  
The purpose of selling my art is not to earn a living but to develop some extra funds for myself as I am transitioning between education paths.  

For starters, I am eager to take on commissions of character art for popular games with a focus on character creation such as Blade and Soul.  I see many threads on their forums of artists taking commissions and since I am extremely familiar with Blade and Soul, I thought I'd put that knowledge to use.  Especially since the community seems open and willing to purchase artwork of their beloved characters. 

Please let me know what you think/offer advice as you see fit~
Thank-you kindly 

I've started a patreon and am looking for advice on how to start selling art. I'm happy to take requests and commissions and negotiate prices. Also, what prices would you recommend for sketches/full paintings?

And for rewards on patreon (still very new) what would you recommend?
