YOUR ART HAS VALUE! (and how to price it)
Hello everybody!
I get asked frequently ‘how do you price your art?’  “How do I evaluate how much I should charge for commissions?” etc.  Recently, I’ve read a few disappointing posts on how some people devalue either themselves or others’ art purely because it is posted online either as digital or traditional.  We often see people with very low prices being taken advantage of by commissioners who want to obtain amazing art for pennies on the dollar without notifying the artist that maybe their prices are too low.  On the flip side, we also see people who complain that art is ‘too expensive’ when the pricing of the artist’s work in question is appropriate.
In response to these, I’ve decided to create a journal designed to help you (yes you, reader) understand that your work has value and how you should price your work as a result.  It also might shed light on a pretty widespread problem online o

:bulletpink: I am an obscure creature and my likes and dislikes are in the billions, but they have a familiar streak...

Nintendo freak - free icon by indigojelly I'm very retro styled, love the 80's and 90's (yes, yes... including the fashion and music!) and I love anything to do with Nintendo, Japan and Pop Culture.

:star: Stuff about me...

- Being a general "Artist" and evolving within that.
- Fashion alien ( yes I love alternative fashion).

Hey Nat! One traditional to another, but I wonder...what do you do with all of your older drawings that are already posted to the internet or your pc? I mean like do you shred them (I mean the REALLY old stuff from like 2010), or keep them because I always see how much room I'm running out of in my room to hold the drawings lol ^^; Just wanted your thoughts :)
