Honestly the animation is so smooth and it's so nicely done 
Shame on whoever is voting for $2 just for their own selfish wants 

honestly hun, I charge per frame when I do complex animations 

i'd charge at least $10 for something like that

:I I love how people will always vote for the lowest amounts just because they don't have enough to afford higher amounts/are cheap

A fair price would be $6-$9 as it's a really smooth animation and is worth more than a mere $2 [which is of course the most voted because why pay what it's actually worth when you could pay 2$ amiright?] plus pixel art is harder than normal art : p

bless this comment 
this quality is def worth more than 200 tbh

Yeah :'3 this artist is amazing and definitely deserves more than 200/2$ for an animated icon ;w;

I might start out a bit cheaper than that and slowly raise with demand

Actually this animation is only 5 frames and only took me about 45mins to make (if I had to guess bc I don't time myself)

I've got a lot of practice for pixels so it's kinda easy for me as long as the designs are simple c:

Alright :'3
It still slightly infuriates me that people ask for the smallest amount possible :c

Only 5 frames? .o. looks really smooth for just five :'D

Alright :'3 just don't undercharge yourself :'3
too many artists do that these days ;o;

It does! makes animating it easier on me lol

It's hard finding the perfect balance that gives me a reasonable amount of money for my art while still being attractive against the massive amount of competition with all the other artists around charging less for more :')

yeah :'3

that is true :c

I noticed this too and I had voted 800/$8
it's kind of secondhand embarrassment to see that many people vote for the lowest price lol
there are feral icons that go for $20+ so it's just like ??? guys wyd $2 is not fair to the artist at all
Mersiefloof's avatar
exactly .o. and I also voted 8 xD

but yeah I don't get why people have to do it? I mean I understand they want awesome art from an awesome artist
but it's really unfair to the artist to ask for a price that is less than a carton of milk, for something that is a want and not a need

yeah exactly .o. it's just- just :iconfacepalmplz:
