Enchanted_skies I think you could easily times all your prices by 2. You might still get a a few bites at 5X

If we're talking about prices closer to real life currency, I'd say times 10 but not many people on FV can afford that


All in all, what you set your prices at should only depend on what you're comfortable with (and what others say doesn't matter). If you just like drawing for the sake of drawing, just stay with your current prices.

When pricing your art, it's important to consider the following:
- How long it takes you to make (keep in mind your local hourly minimum wage as a base reference)
- How much effort you put into each piece (difference between sketches, doodles, and full detail especially)
- How high of a skill level you consider yourself
- How busy you are compared to how high the demand for your art is
And unfortunately, there is one last thing to keep in mind that pertains to selling your art on FurVilla: Unless there's massive demand for your art, you're likely going to end up underpricing in order to make sales here, especially if you try and sell for USD (but FV currency too).

What I'd recommend is taking all of the above into consideration and doing a PWYW shop with a set minimum that you feel is fair. If after a few days, weeks, however long you're comfortable trying it out, and there's little interest, bump down the minimum price and try again. If there's a decent amount of interest, bump up the minimum price.

This method should work even if you don't do a PWYW shop, the key being experimenting with your prices and finding a good middle between what you want to get for your art and what people are willing to pay.
