Both are okay, but sometimes, the designers should change from non-chibi to chibi or vice versa. It's easier to interest buyers if sellers would sometimes try out something new!

Ahhh that is true!! I was thinking of actually doing some regular adopts especially for those who aren't interested in Eliore just to increase my audience! Thank you for your input!

I prefer non-chibi adopts, but on or off base matters less to me. With chibis my feeling is like, well it's cute so of course I want it, but do I actually like the design? And then I hesitate until it is gone lol

I think the other commenters are on to something with the tiers for adding extra. It's a nice way for someone to start off with more art for that character and you get more $$$ for less designing.

Ahh... so you prefer full bodies with details that are clear and easy to understand! I feel you!!

And honestly, I think that is a good idea to be honest!!! I think I might implement the AB tiers with a headshot of some sort so maybe to increase amount of money!! Thank you so much for your input!!!

As long as I like the design I dont usually care whether or not its a base?

(Although I usually prefer flatsales to auctions, but thats kinda unrelated?)

Oof sorry for my crap answer

Ahh, yes, flat-sales are always so much more convenient! My fear with posting them up, however, is that due to the price having to be initially large, I always fear that nobody will purchase them ;-; !!!!

Maybe once I've gotten a good enough idea over how much each of my Eliore will cost, I will put them up for flatsale!!!

I tend to enjoy anything if the design or colours are good. Some details are good, like things that make the design unique, but when there are too many intricacies it makes it more difficult to draw the character after you've bought it.

I love the idea of having different autobuy options - I've seen adopts where people offer extra art if they autobuy at a higher price (i.e. $35 is just the adopt, $45 is adopt and a headshot, etc). That way, you can still claim the design even if you don't want the extra art, or you can choose to buy it with the advanced options. 

For species adopts I tend to prefer them on-base? I find it makes the designs clearer and you can see how the species' anatomy looks on other designs with the same base. I find this helps me to identify which designs speak to me more because you can see the differences between adopts more clearly!

Sorry for the ramble - hope this helps!

Whisperrrssss I feel you on the whole details thing. I personally dislike purchasing incredibly detailed designs that make it impossible to draw again oh my gosh! Ahaha. 

Ah yes!!! I think I'm going to do that in terms of the Autobuy next time I post the next batch (which is coming, I just need to set a time where I can advertise and submit to groups properly!!). $45 for the adopt + headshot seems a great idea! Especially since I love drawing headshots!!

And noooo I love rambles so this helps a lot thank you for your input!!!

Honestly it depends on the race. Humans I'd be happy with a good headshot, most times I will adjust things like tattoos or peircings and body shape on their next art piece. But everything else I prefer to know all their markings. Chibi's are about 45% of what I buy, but that might just be because typically their costs are lower so more artists do them. So higher variety.
You art is all beautiful, If I wasn't trying to move I would be paying for like 4 of your headshots. So it is not you love. You are perfect

Awww I'm glad that you're interested in my art! 
However, yes! Chibis for me are definitely much quicker to flesh out, hence why I make them usually like $25!!! 
Thank you for your input!!!!!

I'm gonna be honest, as long as the design's adorable, I'm in loveee. <3
That'd be cool to have a chibi with extras if people would like to pay more, though. It's what I used to do for my adopts and people seemed to like it, so it'll definitely work out for you.
