How to start doin commissions
Edit: This tutorial covers aspects related only to your Deviantart gallery and Deviantart Journal. It has nothing to do with the Deviantart's newly implemented points commission system. You can take commissions without using that points system on Deviantart as long as you have paypal.
When you have enough watchers and people interested in your art.
When you have a closely-bounded community around your work/gallery
How many is enough I can't say for sure, because it depends on the community around you and your work. Some artists can live on one patron, others need to live on millions of them.

Introducing Commissions on deviantART
1. List Commission availability on your profile
The Commissions Widget showcases your offerings, showing potential clients that you are accepting requests.
2. Client request Commissions
Commission requests are sent to the artist's Message Center, allowing them to accept or reject the request.
3. You receive payment, you deliver artwork
Artists can track their Commission transactions and generate real profit through My Earnings, garnering 80% royalty on each transaction. Earnings can then be withdrawn as a check, via PayPal, or converted to deviantART Points.
My Correspondence
The new My Correspondence page gives you access to all of your correspondence messages, including Commissions and Group requests. Comments and replies can also be left on accepted commission requests, for a more convenient experience for buyer and seller alike.

Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
Twenty-something university student, artist
and writer.

Words are my passion and
there’s nothing I love more than spending hours on filling
empty pages
to the brim with jumbled letters.

Pitch-black ink is flowing through my veins
and written words are my
poison of choice.
