Any want cheap commissions

by
always surprises me that I have to ask to get commissions.

Not to disparage any other artist, but people are jumping and screaming over to get that one open $200 spot for some popufur.  When you can really get 6-7 similar things from at close quaility usual for the same price.  Personally Id rather get 7 nice pieces than 1 cool one.

But anyway.  It amazes considering number of watchers, I dont have people scambling to fill every spot I offer, let alone asking for commissions which seem to be 60% of current going price at my level.

Oh well.

But seriously why aren't the cheap seats being filled....

there's 2 $10 spots in the sexpit comic, or $15 for a couple, which gets you in comic and a pinup of that frame to post
so cheap $10/15 post, why isnt this snatched up?

so anyways, take if you want, eventually just move on and raise prices or sumthing lol


(EDIT:  and I am not bitching bout my commissioners, i wuvs you guys, I seem to have a core group that support me and continually throw money at me as I think you like my stuff, i could rattle off names here, but you know who you are....

and I have a line up of commissions now to finish...but I tend to finish them rather quickly (xcept for animations, which I have been lazy about, which I intend to dedicate a period a day to finish, as I have  a backlog now of 5 to finish....finished one tonight yay, but most of my commissions will be finished this week and then barren...  and would love to have a to do list after that)

If coms aren't selling raising prices isn't a good idea... if anything you should have a sale to get commissions in then after wards everyone else who enters once the sale is over gets your normal prices. You are right though I question why people would go bankrupt over some awesome shit then commission nice quality cheap art instead... I don't get most people in this fandom but hey it is what it is <3 When I get the chance I'll commission you... that or if you'd like to be in an auction :3

I think that was a joke.

and for the cheap seats being empty, I'm leaving spots for other people, I don't wanna hog all the glory.

not really....i dont mind people filling spots, its more about getting comic pages pages as far as that goes, i actually wanted that page completed this weekend, but not a single spot filled, including the $10 spots

and this is not to say I dont appreciate people like you who help to fill open spots

I would, but another part is I have bills to pay, and only so much money.  I mean, I technically could buy more spots, but with what I bought already, I'm just racking up more debt.

if there's still spots next week, and I have money, I might.

wait, over a thousand more watchers, and ten dollar spots are ignored for a week?  how'd you manage that?

and *hugs* back, I lurve your art, and your comics.  some more than others, but I like 'em all.

well this is my thinking...i have a limited paying clientelle apparently.  I am running sales continually, but lower prices do not draw people in.  The only thing I seem to be doing is discounting prices for my paying fans who would pay more, but get cheaper spots due to the "sales"

like the $10 spots in sex pit arent even getting inquiries after a week, and YOU GET A PINUP, so its not only just a cheap soft shaded pic ($25 if you commissioned it) but 2 characters for $15 and meh...and you get in the comic too

so do sales work, when most people, hey your a popufur throw $100 dollas at u

What I'm getting is just because someone is a Popufur they get $1,000 thrown their way but actually that's not accureate because lots of Popufurs Don't get as much business as the next... If you continue to raise Prices People who haven't come to you may say... that's more expensive and he wanted me to get one when it was cheaper? *moves away more*  If you have sales people will come more and you'll soon have popufur status People will notice you way more then they do now and you'll get coustomers to ask more until you bring them to normal prices again. the prices raise only when you're getting traffic not the opposite. Besides you're pretty decent in what you draw so even I don't see why people don't come here more

agreed...but as said, were talking about $10 spots not being filled....for softshaded spots, $15 for a couple, pinup AND in comic.  Dont understand why that isnt jumped on

Me neither :( *hug* I'd buy a spot if I had more money but I owe people...

well the thing is also, I can understand if some awesome artist too charges high prices to do awesome work.  But there are far too many examples of people doing crappy work or substandard work that get high prices because they are popular.  I am not being jealous here, cuz hey more power to them for doing that.  Its jus the people commissioning THAT.  Its like yeah for what I paid, I could get 10 things that looked way better, but hey it has this artist name's attacjed, squee.  And the thing is....riding coattails like that doesnt get them any more watches or views.  I got a com by so and so, who cares?  Just saying...and I say that for me too, people commissioning pieces from me to ride coattails?  why...do it cuz u like the art and want to see more.

Like Khzhak I was giving others opportunities.  I think I have had more characters in Sex Pit than anyone but you, especially after the previous page.  :P  But, of course, I have more I could bring in... and since I am playing Spore again, I am making all kinds of strange new "sporn" creatures.  ;)

there will always be spots for people if they want one, but epecially with the comics, its more important to me that they get filled timely so I can turn them out and make more spots later...oh no  breaks your spore heheh

Okay, no more mister nice wolf, giving other people chances!  Bwa-ha-ha-ha!

Excellent!!!  But if they don't get back to you, let me know.  I have 2 possible characters ready, though one if them is much more suited for a 3-way (or more) since he has 3 cocks (crotch, tongue, and second tail).  I have a nice image for him that I need to get posted along with a couple other things.  :)

Hear hear! I'm with you on this totally. Reasonable prices and the like I do as well. Not sure why there's not the whole fandom breaking down the door. It's weird. Ah well, no worries I suppose in the end. Gives me time to just have fun drawing and the like.

But that still is plenty bizarre. But, as the Doors once sang, "People are Strange".
