Your Point Commissions are Worth More Than That.I see this a lot. Talented digital artists will post point commission info on their profile or as a forum post, and I hardly ever see a price worth more than $2.

I'm not even talking about the few super-crazy-talented digital artists with the ability to sit down with a tablet and Photoshop for 12 hours and create something that looks like it belongs in a museum.
I'm talking about deviants who posses the undervalued talent of drawing "pretty darn well". I'm talking about virtually every drawing-artist on dA that I've ever seen. Your people look like people. Your animals look like animals. You actually used decent shading. Your colors look nice together. You joined dA for a good reason!
Super popular? Very few people are. Way better than I could do? For sure! I focus on jewelry making. I can sketch and shade simple inanimate objects, and I have a pretty good eye for color theory. That's about it. If it moves or breathes, I'm hopeless at

I know it's a nice gesture, but this is how PP makes most of their revenue-so please do me a favor and send all payments as a 'service' or 'goods.' NEVER send it as a gift or any way that will avoid fees.

Price of the Art on dAI would like to move a very specific thread.Price of the Art on dA4 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's about the price of art and commissions. Because there are a lot of questions; what decides for the price of art? Why it is worthy? And why do we buy commissions?
Some is already written here: http://goldenwolf.deviantart.com/journal/26548172/#comments
I've met with many people who were complaining about the price of art, especially why it is expensive and it doesnt deserve. Even some person did a drama just because prices of my art are *too* expensive. And I'm not alone, I've saw on some proffessional artists who are on dA as well.
I noticed the price of art on deviantART is very low.
Like many people complains that full colored picture plus you get original for 50-70$ is too much. I did some research and counted how much artists originally earn (out of dA)- even a simple artist earns 5 times more than great artists on dA which I know.
Do you know on Eurofurence just only PRINT can be sold there for 100-500 euros?

hank you for your interest in Poke-Revelations! Now that you have browsed over the introduction and history, the next step is character creation. The group will be holding a Beta Opening for a select number of applicants before the grand opening; mostly to show what we would like to see character wise for the group for potential members to model after.
PokeRevelations is currently: Under Construction
The Do's and Don'ts of Pokemon on Revelations
echnology and era placement is going to be a bit crucial when it comes to character designing for Poke-Revelations. The worlds of Caelum, Infernum and Purgatorium are not a modern realm and lack the conveniences of computers, phones, internet, cars, guns, etc etc. You could say the technology is somewhere around the late 1700s to very early 1800s, but with the added b

New Program: MischiefSo there's this program called Mischief that I feel like not a lot of people may know about right now. I only know about it thanks to my tumblr dashboard.New Program: Mischief5 months ago in Personal More Like This
Hmm, to talk about it would be easier in bullet points so let's get to that.
Infinite canvas, resolution, and dimension. It's all specialized textured vector so no matter how small you draw you can export it to a .psd or .jpg of ANY RESOLUTION AND ANY DIMENSION which is pretty fucking amazing and helps those people who can't handle heavy programs or preset resolutions like in SAI or Photoshop.
It's like drawing on paper. Like to me it's really forgiving paper. The select tool is pretty much like a canvas cropping device-- you select and then you can export the selected area as the cropped image. Otherwise it doesn't do nice things like resize, scale, or rotate. (Just yet anyway, I think they're still developing.) So it's a good practice tool.
It's really smooth and pleasant to draw

To artists who want to offer commissions. I would like to address something I have been seeing as of late here and on other sites. Artists who are asking if someone would commission them if they were to offer commissions and if so, how much should they charge or how much are they willing to pay?To artists who want to offer commissions.10 months ago in Art Features More Like This
I say this with a real heart to all artists, but that is a foolish line of questions.
Really. I have been there. I even did those myself. But look at it from the side of a potential buyer.
1: Would you even commission me?
Can you imagine if a doctor were to say that? If I were to open an office would you even come to me? That makes the doctor feel like a failure. Like he has so little faith in his ability to do his job he is afraid to do it. So he has to ask a thousand people IF he were to open an office would ANYONE come? Would you? Or would you want a doctor who just opens it and does his job and believes in his ability to treat you?
Same with an artist. You sound like you have no faith in your ability. If you do
