These are awesome! You are very talented. I definitely think you should do comissions!!
The first sea creature is my favorite. I've never seen crabs or crayfish done in this style and they look amazing. Very unique. Great job!

These are awesome! I love the first sea creature, which kind of reminds me of a zombie mermaid, which, is a really cool concept in general, and the monster family. I love the bright colors. You should definitely do commissions, if you had these on etsy or a similar site I would seriously consider buying them.

That lobster is phenomenal! Totally wicked good!
If you made them into greeting cards they would sell and make you gobs of money. Not what you think of when you're making art with your talent but having worked in the biz I gotta tell you, that's where the sales are and these would be super popular. Nice work Smiley

Here's a trick for making cards... take a Very good photograph of your piece and print them up regular photo size, don't use walmart 1 hour because their prints suck, go someplace good. Then buy a card making set of blanks and envelops and just glue your prints on or get fancy and use those photo corners. Remember to sign each one on the card blank "frame" around the print. Number then if you are going to make limited batches, like 1-100 for 1 of 100 prints. This is very inexpensive and easy to do and that sort of card can sell for between $4-$6 each. In all my years of working retail cards and sunglasses were the thing that sold the most and brought in the most revenue. If everyone printed cards and postcards they'd increase their sales so much. That way everyone gets to go away with a piece of art that they loved, even if they couldn't afford to buy a big print.
postcard are good to, you can have them made up by a print shop and they sell for $1-$2, a Great grab item or as a little gift to include in bigger orders.

Hope you don't mind all this unasked for advice, I just like your work Wink.

Ill definetly be giving all that a go!, i cant get to a WalMart anyway, being in Scotland the closest i have is Tescos haha, but im sure they have a print kiosk. So pretty much just mounting the Prints of the piece onto nice card?, so simple but so effective. ive so many ideas on things to do, Jewlerry, Plushies etc but not the funds to do it all yet, in time!. Ill be jumping through to the shops as soon as i can.
