No one asked for it but here’s a little spill of some thoughts concerning DA and the art market.

So preface to this was that I take issue with the point system on DA where for one thing they are worth less than a penny but have that conversion factor, and that moreover where everything is scaled as pennies it becomes a pressure to keep prices down because where a normal commission would be 20$, it would seem like a much scarier 20000 points.
And, when it was pointed out how useful the currency system is within DA that you can use it to buy and trade adopts, etc, it occurred to me that there were entirely different things that DA was being used for here.

DA is a great system for kids. Yeah, artists just starting out or pretty much anyone in their teen years where probably don’t have a lot of income and the business itself is not on the level of like, necessitating business transaction, instead being much more so focused on transaction of art and designs which is good.
I think maybe it becomes problematic when you have people that need a business transaction in from the system in order to support themselves or to have just some money on the side– actually trying to make money from their work as opposed to collecting characters or art. Two entirely different things which, the later doesn’t really seem to have much of a place. It’s an interesting thing to think about that if DA is the place to go for the prior, then it would seem like we just really need an equivalent for essentially a higher tier where money is the goal and maybe a little more professionalism.
DA does have a primary user base of youth, youth that doesn’t have income outside of their parents and therefore DA is not a good platform to profitize an audience from. Artists that are at the level to be essentially looking to conduct higher business need a pool of people that are capable of doing that and DA just can’t provide is what I’m talking about comes down to. And it’s weird because there isn’t really a consolidated place for one thing for professional artists that don’t carry the same to be vocational. There actually are some places to consolidate vocational artists I’ve stumbled upon recently but there’s a differentiation in market between vocational artists putting together a portfolio to score a job as a designer or animator for some place or get a big commission, and then professional small business artists that are there for small time commissioning.

I believe that over time there has been a broad diversifying within the art community that the market itself has yet to recognize the need to compensate.
For now, we need something that is able to consolidate artists with their audience just as DA does, but on the higher level of professional artists that actually are trying to make money for example on twitter, FA, and tumblr.

Used to take them occasionally, but nope!
I do commissions however-- here's the info if you're interested: azkre.tumblr.com/commission-in…

Of course, I am open to 'suggestions' however, for art-- like you can 'suggest' ideas or just whatever? I mainly take those through tumblr though, and like-- there may be a rare occasion that I take request for a short time, be it if I'm just looking to draw stuff or if there's like a art meme with it (like, outfits or draw the otp), or just something like that.

I guess, in short-- I do commissions now, but you can be on the look out!
Thanks for showing an interest though~
