Just wondering if you're open for commissions at the moment?  :)

WHEN ARTISTS SIDE WITH ARTISTS, THE PEOPLE PAYING THE COMMISSIONS ARE THE ONES WHO LOSE.

THIS IS WHY ARTISTS CHARGE SO MUCH, BECAUSE THEY SIDE WITH EACH OTHER.  THEY HAVE NO BUSINESS SENSE, AND THEY THINK THEY WILL MAKE MORE MONEY SIMPLY BY CHARGING MORE. 

IF YOU COMPLAIN, THEY WILL BLOCK YOU.  WE SHOULDN'T HAVE TO TAKE THIS SITTING DOWN.  IT'S OUR MONEY.

pffft.  I've talked to artists quite a bit, and frankly speaking most artists *undercharge*.  For the number of hours they put into a drawing, they effectively aren't even charging a rate that gives them minimum wage.  

They are putting their hard work and effort into the drawing, and just as importantly in this case, putting several hours of their life into it.  Yes, it's bloody expensive to hire a good artist (because that's what you're doing when you commission someone).  

But they don't get stuff for free.  And neither should you.  

And yes, I saw your reply to :iconikelag:.  Frankly, if this post is anywhere near to the approach you took to 'negotiating' price, I'm not surprised they blocked you.  

In fact let me just check prices of those two artists... yup, just as I though.  
Pixel Jail charges 20 pounds for a single character commission, call it 40 dollars or so, and KillerMoon charges $35 US.  That is exactly what I am talking about.  That is dirt cheap for what you are getting, mate.  They're both decent artists, I don't know exactly how much time a commission takes for them to draw but I would be willing to bet actual money that they are not charging even minimum wage per hour with those prices.  

You got offers that were already incredible bargains and you tried to negotiate them down from that.  And you're wondering why they're pissed off at you.  Well, there's your answer.

They'd get more business if they didn't block me.  I know they can't do art work full time, but every commission they accomplish DOES get them more promotion.  They get less of that if they charge more.  Harsh reality of markets.

Ah, so they should do it for the exposure?
