On adoptable pricing (sort of rant-ish I suppose).This journal is about adoptable-prices and, when generalized, about art-pricing on deviantART in general.
I know this is bound to raise a debate, but after what I have recently been seeing in the adoptable-community I'm tackling this topic.
If you feel you may be offended by this, then please stop reading here. That being said, I shall try to keep this journal as polite as possible.
First: a little question.
How many of you here have already drawn art for money (or points) or have made adoptables and sold adoptables?
If you have, then congratulations, this message is of importance of you. If you are a buyer of art / adoptables, this message is also of importance.
I've been noticing more and more comments on art of adoptables complaining about the pricing.
Luckily, I seem to not get too many of these (knock on wood), but I still find these types of comments incredibly rude when I come across them.
Mind you, there is a huge difference between:
"I love this adoptable, but
Fedir and Pookum customs points-sale: Y / N ?I've been having fun designing some more Fedirs and Pookums lately and I wondered if you guys would be interested in getting a custom one?Fedir and Pookum customs points-sale: Y / N ?11 months ago in Personal More Like This
Pricing would be 200 points (premium Content) or $2 for a Fedir or 300 points (Premium Content) or $3 for a Pookum.
That's 50 points / $0.50 cheaper than the pre-made ones and it'll look how you want it to look!
If you want to order one, please check out the commission-widget on my page or comment / note with the following info:
- Colour-palette or preferred colours.
- Preferred markings ( if applicable)
- For a Pookum: which element the Pookum should be (tail differs per element).
