Point Adoptable - Starts at 80pts by Kitsufox Point Adoptable - Starts at 80pts by Kitsufox
As I was bored, and wanted to do something, I decided to do something that might potentially help me towards my mission to acquire a paid account.

Please refrain from paying until such time as I accept the offer and ask for payment. Anything else will be considered a donation.
Remember to be clear about what purchasing level you wish to do with in any offers.

PRICES
A - 80 pts: Buy the design only. You'll get the small pelt pixel and are expected to draw the character within a week. You may not resell the design.
B - 160 pts: Buy the design & the pixel. You'll get what you see, but may not resell the design.
C - 240 pts: Buy the design, the pixel, and the resale rights to the image.
D - 320 pts: Buy the design, the pixel, the resale rights, AND the right to request changes to the work to customize it! (changes will be limited to those taking 2 hours or less, and can be arranged prior to exchange of funds and the finalization of the sale).

Sorry, trades are not accepted.
The copyright notice will be removed from the version going to a buyer.

Remember that 80 points is a dollar US. These prices are fair for my work in creating the design and the pixels you get. In fact, they're downright cheap. Don't undervalue the art of yourself or others! Stop adoptables priced at less than a dollar! They disrespect artists!

Lines copyright ~Kitsufox, and I'm the only person who should ever be selling art using them.

Just some suggestions here kit:

1- Start the bids a bit lower, 10-20 is a good starting amount.

2- Try making your designs a bit more simple for starters and once you get more people buying designs, slowly add a few more complex designs at a higher price.

3- You're being a bit over-specific with licencing. Many people who get point adopts use them as background characters in comics or pictures. Let them use their new character as they wish! Now it's theirs, not yours.

I hope this will help you! :)

I understand that you're trying to help, but it's things like this that damage the art market. Do you know what a point is worth? 80 points are worth a dollar. If I spend a half-hour to an hour on a piece I fully expect to get more than a quarter.

As for the designed... I made the cats that I had fun making... I'm not actively making art for the express purpose of making points. I'm not working commercially here, I'm working to have fun. Since I don't have a purpose for these offering them for sale on the off chance that I earn a few spare points seemed like a good idea.

And on the licensing. "now it's theres, not yours"... That's not true with art. You can sell reproduction rights without selling all rights to the work. I feel it's fair that I require a higher price if the buyer wants redistribution rights or derivative works rights. This is fully normal practice. If they were going to use it commercially (IE: sell the comic), i'd expect more. Perhaps I should specify "no commercial uses".

I am thinking of making a batch of the pelts that are adoptable... They'd be priced differently, because I can do a pelt in a short while. But frankly... This isn't "Helping". Know the value of a point and stop undervaluing artwork. If you're not willing to spend a dollar on my cat, then you don't understand the amount of work that goes into art in the first place. As a graphic designer I make 14$ an hour. I spent 30 minuets on that kitty. By my own math, and my own personal feelings, I should be getting 7$ minimum for him. I'm already compromising my art's value by offering the design itself for 80 points.

It appears I have not said what thought I was saying. This design is obviously had lots of work put into it, and should therefore cost more.

What I was trying to say is, if you start with a low enough bid and it is a likable design it will increase in value. So if you start with say 50 points (yes I realize how much a point is worth, thank you)it could grow to 200 points on a bid overnight. If you put an end date in it, this makes the fight for the design more necessary. Some people will spend literally 700 points on a design in this frenzy, just for a starting cost.

What I was trying to get at is, start lower for a starting bid and it could grow because people will start bidding because they find it cheap. Then they start becoming attached to the design and will pay more, and more.

I was not trying to say that this design is worth less than it really is. I realize that this takes a lot of time to make and create, and you should be paid for it fairly. The adopts is just a big battle, and the purpose is to lure others into it. I'm very sorry if I offended you, I hate to offend friends, but hopefully you see what I was trying to say. You may not agree with my ideas, but please don't let these possibilities tear apart our friendship.

This isn't an auction, dear. Those are "buy it" prices. I would do something really fancy and eye-catching if I wanted to auction it off.

I figured you didn't mean to offend, and in most cases the adoptables market is flooded with people charging too little. As for "tearing apart our friendship". I doubt it. It takes more than saying one thing I didn't like to make me not like a person... That I gave you a long, in depth response is a mark of respect. I considered what you said, and while I disagreed, I took the time to explain why. I don't do that for people I don't respect on at least some level.

Well I had to double check, I'd hate to ruin something over a silly disagreement. It's better to be safe than sorry!

Some people take things too harshly and ignore the intent completely (when the intent isn't what was accomplished).

Exactly. Just wanted to make sure you didn't take things the wrong way!
