Hi Angga! I'm fellow Indonesian too, nice to meet you!
Your works are amazing, the quality is totally in par with other background artist in this forum. But I can't help being uncomfortable with your pricing. If you look around, background artist here usually charged $60 minimum for simple background and the price will rise accordingly depends on the amount of detail the client want in a background. So when I saw you only charged $25, I just can't help to tell you that you're selling your service waaay too low. I fully understand that how much you charged for your service is not my business, but it saddens me because I'm an artist too and I've seen too much case of other artist underselling their work.

Please consider to rise your price, okay? You deserve much more than your current price.

Hi Morinoir!
Thank you for your advice!
Actually, I'm aware that this price is too low, but the thing is, that I'm on a debt right now. I need a lot of money to pay it. Even so, with $25 price tag, not so many people buy it :(.
Of course I will raise the price in the future when I'm not in debt anymore,
Anyway Thank you so much!

I'm sorry to hear that. There aren't many paid work here lately (I've seen some but they're for adult game haha), but you can try your luck on deviantart's job offer forum. There's always someone who look for environment concept art too if you're into that. Or you can also create a creative common background set that you can sell via gumroad or other similar online store. I'm sorry I couldn't help much. I wish you best of luck with your commission!

Selling background set on gumroad sounds like a good idea!
Do you have know some artist that do something like that?

I've seen one that did it but they're not a background artist, they're UI artist. I think there aren't many people who do it? Pick a setting that is flexible and can be used in a lot of story, like school, beach, park, etc and make a set that contain different times (day, night, sunset, etc). You might also want to read more about licensing if you decide to sell your background art on gumroad =)

Another sample that I did, It's actually not my best because of the limited deadline and the line art is already provided by the buyer

Your background art is amazing! I wish I could commission a few backgrounds but unfortunately I'm in a tight spot with money... Hopefully in the future! I hope you can get a few commissions from others. :D

Gosh your background art is incredible and it's amazing you offer work for such a cheap price! I'm currently working on a project where we are in serious need of backgrounds, but don't have the funding necessary to commission anything. But I'll definitely keep you in mind for when our budget is more flexible!^^
