The Pricing-Guilt Phenomenon"I have a question about the extreme price."The Pricing-Guilt Phenomenon3 months ago in Personal More Like This
This is a message I recently got regarding a listing of my latest Baby Jackalope art doll on Etsy.
That was the extent of the message. No please or thank you, no actual question stated besides the inferred comment that the price of my artwork is a gouge.
I realized that although the tone of the message was rather rude, it's a question artists get asked all the time and an opportunity for me to stand up for artists without sending an equally rude reply to the likes of "If you do not like the pricing of my original art, you can go to Hallmark and buy a cheap stuffed bear made by the thousands using near slave-labour in China". I do not feel that anyone should be obligated to justify why and how the pricing of their craft translates into how much grocery money they end up with at the end of the week, but this might be helpful or at least reassuring for those of us who
What are adoptables? (The informational journal)FAQ: AdoptablesWhat are adoptables? (The informational journal)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
What are adoptables?
The 'adoptables' you are seeing in this group are mostly animal, hybrid and human designs artists use as personas or characters. They have no physical presence. They are mainly artistic designs of all sorts sold for points (a strictly dA resource), trade or real cash.
How do I sell them? What are the rules for adoptables?
The designs sold are like selling pieces of artwork - they have to be one of a kind and not a copy of someone else's design. If you sell a design that is (or is almost like) somebody else's design, you can get banned from dA for art theft.
To sell an adoptable, it has to be a design you made that you are willing to sell to someone else for the trade of your choice. You can trade it for one of their adoptables, sell it to them for points/money or even give it away for free. You may do this as long as you m

This is rather early for me to address this, but I felt like writing about this.22 More Days until B-Day, MAKE SOMETHING FOR ME!9 months ago in Personal More Like This
Remember, you don't have to give me something. While I understand that some can get tired of the generic "Happy Birthday" message, consider being thankful that someone in the world is aware that it's your day of birth. And of course, who doesn't love gifts? Presents are a big reason why people love birthdays. On deviantART, it's great for an artist to draw something for you, whether you ask them to, or if it's by complete surprise with gratitude.
And it's okay to ask! I don't mind people generally asking a favorite artist or their watchers to make something for them. Heck, we tell our parents what we want on our birthdays, so this is normal. However, when people beg constantly to the point of negatively forcing someone to give them something, then that is an issue to me. The same g

Tips for Starting Commissions I was thinking about my last journal, where I asked why everyone and their cat wanted to sell commissions so badly. I recieved some really insightful answers.Tips for Starting Commissions9 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I also had a lot of people asking me "How much should I charge for my work?"
I'll add a Disclaimer right here in front, as for whatever reason, something always offends someone :iconstunplz: . So I'll start off by saying, this is just my personal journal, and I'm just one person who has some experience with this. I'm not making a judgment on who should sell what, just writing some things I have personally learned along the way.
Well that's out of the way :iconyodawgplz:
So most artists starting off go through a period of confusion on how to price work. They get a lot of suggestions, or theories from well-meaning people such as:
"Artists always undervalue themselves. Don't charge less than minimum wage per hour"
This is true, and I agree. However, unfortunately,

Nordanner Kaaring System| Unlockable Potions! || The Kaaring List |Nordanner Kaaring System3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The Kaaring List journal is not a complete list of registered quality blood horses. The Kaaring List is for us admins to update the ID Lists. Horse names are removed from the Kaaring List once the kaaring is noted on the ID lists.
As you read this you’ll notice certain changes have been made and things have been added. Please note: these changes are not retroactive for your kaaring level. This means that if your horse is already registered at a current level it stays that way (they never go down in levels) however you will have to take these changes into consideration for their next level. This means any art done even before the changes will still be held to these rules.

A rescue dogA few days ago, when I was at open field work in another city 200km away from Warsaw, working as off-road/trail photographer as usually- I got a call about a husky dog in desperate need that is located in MY area. Fully starved dog (just bones), having severe skin issues, bleeding and leaking mold off from skin and fur is falling off found on streets laying down- and needs immediate health attention. I'm not anymore active volunteer in my animal rescue foundation due to life changes, but my instincts of rescuing animals came back. I've responded to the animal foundation and took responsibility of picking up and transporting a husky in need.A rescue dog7 months ago in Personal More Like This

So many artists underpricing...It makes me really sad.So many artists underpricing...7 months ago in Personal More Like This
When an artist you want to commission finally open their commissions back and all of their slots are taken in less than a minute.
And I'm sure all the slots would still be taken if the price was increased of x2-x10.
So many artists are still underpricing themselves. People make it a standard for art to sell for so cheap and whenever someone charge more than this standard, which is probably still underpriced, people complain.
By underpricing yourself, you are also contributing to keep the price standard of art low on this site. Charging low can be insulting to other artists, but also to yourself.
Please, don't ever feel like you need to underprice yourself, because of the fear of what other might think or say. You art is worth more than that. There will always be someone complaining, you cannot please everyone. Your time, the efforts, the skills you gained over years of hard work, is worth far way more than a few cents/points.

Tips For Commission ArtistsHello! I thought of making this small guide, based from my personal experience, to give tips to artists, mostly beginners, to be more successful at selling commissions, since seeing from my previous journal many had difficulty with it. So here are some tips to help boosting your sales.Tips For Commission Artists7 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Have your commission info somewhere visible
Possibly, people won't even know you are taking commissions or if they are open if you don't put your commission info somewhere they can see. You can do this in a journal, that I mostly recommend, since it will be showing into your watcher's inboxes and most of your watchers probably rarely visit your profile page. You could still also use the commission widget, or donation poll to write your info. You can also link to your commission info in your signature or the artist's comment of new drawings you upload.
Keep it simple

I know I should keep my mouth shut but I can't. I'm so angry and so disappointed. Riniuu was one of my best friends. She's sweet and all but her tracing and copying is just getting over the line and today she really crossed the line big time. Someone discovered, that Rini's twin fox adopt was traced. I can forgive tracing but I cannot forgive selling stolen art. Even if it was old it's still wrong. And she even sold it for 3800 which is 50$
Someone did an overlay and I cannot help but the proof really speaks against her. I'm sorry but enough is enough.
