Consider Raising Your Prices
|4 votes
While I do not think a minimum wage price could be applied for those of who spend 50+ hours on a manip, I do think many equine manipulators are not realizing their worth.
In Canada, I believe 9.50/hr is minimum wage, I would never dare charging that much but I have raised my prices to a $20 base.
However, so many great artists are offering commissions for literally pennies, others may not be quite as severe but 800 points for a good quality manip that you spend 10 hours on is crazy. Thats less than 1$ an hour!
While art is my hobby, it does take up a lot of time I could be spending on hanging out with friends or even sleeping ;)
So please keep in mind that with tax, 100 points is equal to $1.
Soo.. ONE POINT EQUALS ONE CENT (essentially)
So yeah, maybe not all of need to increase our prices but I do know quite a few of you who could increase your prices. Yeah, you, I see you. RAISE YO PRICEES GURL <3

I'm afraid to raise mine. 
My commissions all go towards my service dog and I have very few things over $3... And even then people don't buy. :(

yeah of course! I'll do that right now :)
and no problem!

also with getting more commisions,
get some more examples up, and put them in groups!  It's all a matter of getting known :) once you do that, I'm sure you'll get a ton of commisions!

put your art in more groups! Find someone who might want to do an AT with, get yourself known and just keep developing your techniques and I'm sure you'll get some commissions soon :)
