Today's Conversation Starter:
I admire artists that are able to make lots of money off of auctioning designs. However, artists that only do auctions bother me a bit, because people who are willing to pay decent money but aren't as loaded as people who will drop (debatably could say waste) 200 dollars on a design, will never get one.
On the same vein, closed species that sell for that much just baffle me. I think it's super awesome that the artists are able to do that, it's great for them, but I can't personally understand it. I honestly have not seen a single piece on DA, ever, that I felt like I would spend 200 dollars on. Maybe I'm just not wealthy enough to understand, but there are so many places to put your money that even though I am 100% on board with supporting your favorite artists, I wouldn't pay them that much for a single adopt or commission.
Please note this is an example price, I've seen less and more. Also no specific species are being referenced, just expensive CS in general.
This was a long one! As always, these are just my opinions, and I encourage you to add your own. Only friendly debates here though, this isn't the argument zone.
