I've been considering trying to finally start making a little money from my art recently by doing commission work, but confidence in my abilities has always been somewhat of a sticking point for this. For the longest time I've sort of felt that I'm just "not good enough" yet to start, so I keep putting off the thought, but recently I could really use the extra income.
Some of my skillsets are much less developed than others, and even just imagining theoretical jobs gets me anxious about not being able to deliver a good result or having them ask for something I'm not very good at. I don't even feel very confident that I would be able to find much, if any work in the first place. It would definitely be difficult for me to put my humility aside and start advertising myself.
I realize there's no clear point at which one can say "yep, you're ready!", so I guess I don't really know what I'm looking for here. I suppose any kind of advice, possibly sharing some nuggets of wisdom or experiences of how other people started out.
