Probably since that's the most they can afford? Something else I should also consider in commissions

What's the most I can charge that is both reasonable and affordable ??

i say $20! Don't charge less just because your watchers don't want to pay a reasonable price. ;7;

People voting $3 are either used to getting free art or are cheap bastards honestly I voted $15 bc I Know animation is a pain and you deserve it so wtf

Okay, that is not worth just $3. It's animation for crying out loud, that shit takes longer to produce.
How long does each animated piece take you? I think it's better to judge it on that.

Hmm, I don't really pay attention to time when making these but if I had to guess maybe 2-3 hours? 

But in order to be commissioned at all I have to work under minimal wage and I'm pretty okay with it since I'm still slowly earning money either way

Duuuude. I can seriously find you better paying work. It really kills me seeing you get paid so little for hours of work. DeviantArt is really a bad place to sell stuff since the mindset is cheap.

Aww it means a lot! I do agree everything here is pretty underpriced, and with competition charging so low it's hard to charge much higher

I'm just trying to ride a balance of supply and demand right now, but I'm ready to go on a bit of a commission hiatus for the most part so I can work on personal projects for the time being!

Its not pretty underpriced, its severely underpriced. DA is way too much of a competition, it feels. 

Sounds good. If you ever want some help finding better paying peeps though, I have a whole clientele i would happily recommend you to! It just hurts me seeing other artists not getting paid closer to the time and skill they give. ;A;

It averages out currently in math to $5.60 but with so many being $3 I'd say rounding 560 down to 500 would be the way to go.

Yep I know. A sudden increase in Foot Longs though seems to be making it seem like its the Subway to go.
