1 deviant said About 50 pages, I can't include eveything, since my sketchooks are about 300 pages long.

I'm interested... $30 is only £20, which is a wonderfully low price for the sharing of something I would consider very personal. If you do end up selling some, I'd be more than happy to shell out something more than that, myself.

I'd definitely love to buy one! I think 20-30 USD is the most I could afford right now, though.

I would definitely want to buy one :)
I agree that 25-30 would be a fair price (now let's just hope shipping doesn't get too expensive). 
I really admire your artwork and I would love to see a bit of your thought process in your sketches. I would also love to see some wolf sketches in there, but that's partly because I'm beginning to draw wolves/werewolves as well :D
Anyways, as long as it's good quality and a reasonable price, I would most definitely buy it

I'd certainly pay $25-$30. However, that means black and white only. If it was color, I'd pay more, but my personal limit right now is about $25-30.

I see that as very acceptable, I was planning 20-30. Possibly include originals in there for the first few buyers, idk. I sketch in volor very often, It is rare I would not use it. However I will do what I can to keep cost down.

Yeah. I've only ever bought one other sketchbook, and that was by BeastofOblivion. It was within that price range because she printed paperback, and in black and white only. I think it was about 50 pages. I think that was the most affordable she could manage and still turn up a small profit.

I really wish I could have gotten one of her books, but I just don't have money right now. ;-;

I might have to do them in black and white if I have to, I guess I initially don't want to since it seems less authentic.

I think black and white is just fine. So long as you go in and tweak them so that the levels and values match the rest of your drawings, I don't think anyone can complain too terribly much, your work is stunning.

I would definitely buy one. I'd be happy to shell out the money for something like this, so $20-30 doesn't seem unreasonable to me at all.

e_____e I payed 105 for Kim Jung Gi's 2013 sketchbook edition, it has all his previous years though too. I saw him at New York Comic Con and just HAD to have a copy. So worth it, I love his artwork.

That's amazing! And for $105 that's really not bad to have basically a holy grail of your idol's work! I'm jealous, his work looks amazing!

Not bad at all considering it has over 200 pages.

Wow, that's like 50 cents a page for some seriously amazing artwork. that's pretty mind blowing!

I would feel weird having a collection of sketches that weren't connected with me in any way; I dunno, it just seems odd to me.

So you do not buy art books? or Conncept art/Art of booksfrom movies or games? I see those and copies of sketchbooks the same way. personally anyway.

There is that I guess, I've always thought of those as a little less personal than somebody's sketches though because they're paid to do them (concept art and design anyway), it's almost always multiple artists' work and the characters often dont belong to them. I'm usually not inclined to buy books like that; the one I have was a gift. I don't mind looking at them, like from a library or borrowed from people/school, but permanently owning one just doesnt really appeal to me. Idk :shrug: I'm a strange person

I love seeing collections of artists' work, and it would support individual artists so I might be interested.
I've only bought one thing that was kind of like a sketchbook before, and I think it was $25, so that would be my initial guess as to how much I would pay for a sketchbook. I don't know if that's a reasonable price though ^^"

20-30 seems to be about what I pay when I buy sketchbooks.
