in See anything spooky? (go to post)
There's a creepy shadow thing that I had to kick out of my house. I think it was some kind of amalgamation of deceased animals - the hills our community is built on used to be farmland. It liked being creepy and climbing on the hall ceiling or crawling down the hallway.

My father's got some really good stories of things he's seen - and I mean like. Really freaky stuff. The kind of stuff that you'd find a creepypasta based on.

I keep telling him to record a video of him talking about it, but he doesn't want to.

The only part I don't like is that the lion faces are lifelike but have no... like... eyes. It's just flat.

They remind me of the Weeping Angels from Dr Who but as lions.

My favorite color's green, and has been since I was about five. I remembered thinking how green was a 'gross' color - color of all sorts of icky things. Like vegetables. And pond slime. I felt like nobody liked it as much as they should - all the other kids preferred red or blue or pink.

So I picked green as my favorite color and it's been that way ever since. It's mostly cause I love nature. Nothing looks better to me than a big lush forest. And green is good!

in Where did the respect for Artists go? (go to post)


THIS

ABSOLUTELY

I couldn't have worded it any other way, seriously.


Thanks!

That post is, of course, excluding times when I lowered my own prices because I remember being young and wanting art and only having 10 bucks, but that should be left up to the artist's discretion.

If I draw you a thing for free, it's a gift. I've never had anyone tip me for a gift, but who does that? ANYWAY... yes. This thread is a big gripe I have with commissioners and the artist community.

Dear Artists! Just because YOU feel your art isn't worth 60$ doesn't mean it's not worth ANYTHING. Ask people to help you price your art! Don't shortchange yourselves!

Dear Commissioners! I understand you may not have a lot of funds! SAVE YOUR MONEY! You can do it! It might be hard but if you really want that beautiful artwork it is WORTH SAVING FOR! Please do not take advantage of artists! Don't pit them against each other to offer the lowest price!

Thank you!

Taanka said:
Let's not even get started on writers. I do commission work elsewhere. On most places like this and virtual pet sites I stopped even bothering because people expect to pay the equivalent of pocket change for 1,000+ words and there are people willing to write for them.

It's as much the creators as the people asking for art though. Because no matter how low someone offers there's always someone willing to do $20 worth the work for $2 like it's nothing.


Honestly this. But it feels like literally no one will buy my art if I don't price it super cheap, and I'm sure a LOT of others feel this way as well. The lower you go, the more potential customers. And if no one's buying, guess the price goes down more. Then more. Then more, until people are finally buying because it's cheap.
Then it's tiring doing lots of art for so little, so you bump up the price. Then people stop buying again.


These two posts sum up the situation pretty well. Unfortunately, there are times when even a dollar helps. Most people who purchase art aren't artists themselves and are looking for a deal. Most artists are looking for money... so you have the problem of commissioners wanting a bargain and artists feeling as if they must bend to that cheapness or else deal with not making any cash.

I once had someone ask me to do 20$ worth of work for 10$. I had to tell them that I would not give them their art if they did not pay up the other 10$ - they did, but that's what I remember. A colored and lined piece of work should not go for $10. Read and understand my commission rules and pay me.

UNFORTUNATELY there are plenty of artists who feel as though they are indebted to their commissioner - and many would have balked and finished the art for just the $10 (anything is better than nothing). It doesn't help that society as a whole seems to take advantage of creative people "I'll pay you with exposure" is what comes to mind. That, and choosing beggars "I know you so you have to bake me a $160 cake for free" & the like.

The only way to change this is to offer to pay artists more, or tip them what you feel they should be charging if they refuse that higher price. If you spoil them a bit, they'll charge more, knowing that their art is worth it. But there are plenty people who just want things for free...

Patreaon helps, as does Koffi and other 'tip' based/pledge sites.

But this is a generational problem. It's just more noticeable with the spread of digital art over the years. People have been charging less than pennies on the dollar for their art since the dawn of forum-based websites. It's not a new problem.

STILL DRIVES ME UP THE FRICKIN WALL THOUGH. It's a big part of why I don't have open commissions.
