Icon Pricing Help

5 May 2020, 11:51 pm (Edited 7 May 2020, 7:40 pm)
Still working on paintie commissions in the background but once those are done I'd like to open 2-3 slots to icons similar to this???

Thing is I'm unsure on the pricing and it has been literally ages since I've done commissions of any icons in my current style so ahh yea fun

< Changed icon with this pic so you can see how it could look as an icon on here!

I'm currently in big need of paintie tickets, but I don't think those tickets are worth 150 FD which is howmuch they used to be in the stalls back when I used to play but that was the price I was considering.
Feel free to update me on the ticket prices if I'm off on the pricing it's been too long since I've bought them pft

If it helps I tend to sell my art starting at the $15 price area but I feel like that would be too high for this place I'm not sure

____

Current price ideas:
Idea #1: 250 FD / 1 or 2 Paintie Tickets
Idea #2:: $15 / 10 Paintie Tickets (Value each ticket at 175 FD each) /?? FC
Idea #3: $15/1500FD/1,500,000FC/10 Paintie Tickets

Very likely to go with idea 3

Pinglist just in case - Please let me know if I forgot to add you!

Woah! Awesome art! You could easily be charging a paintie ticket each, 250FD +

>> side note, ive got a spare paintie ticket if you're open at any point.

i dont think a single paintie ticket is worth this quality of art! a paintie ticket is only worth 150 furdollars which is $1.50. if you normally charge $15 for these icons, you should be asking for at least 10 paintie tickets to make it equal $15 (if my math is right)

the ratio is $1 = 100 furdollars = 100,000 furcash

please dont undersell yourself! 1 paintie ticket is not enough for your art

Ohhh ok big thank you!
Still I highly doubt anyone has 10 painties laying around and evene more to commission someone like me i'm not really sure xD

But seriously I highly appreciate it and will be sure to look into the pricing before officially making a shop for them! Also thanks for the conversion ratio! Really had no idea so ahhh ye shows how much I know about this site pft

I may not have 10 paintie tickets laying around but I do have 7
I agree with Atilla that you should definitely charge more than 1 ticket for each icon! Paintie tickets are 250 FD each in the FDE, but users usually sell them in the stalls anywhere between 150 to 185 FD or so, so how much you're going to value one ticket is up to you! Personally I value them at 250 FD each because it's easier for me to keep track of how many I can ask for when taking them as payment because I suck at math so I don't want to redo it every time, but that's just a personal preference!

I think $15 is a very fair price for these icons! I'd pay 10 paintie tickets as well if that's how many you're going to ask for! ^^

I don't have 10 paintie tickets lying around but I'd definitely be interested in getting an icon if you'll take the equivalent in FC or FD.


(I don't think it's been mentioned yet but the cheapest way to purchase paintie tickets is to get a ten-pack from the FD Emporium. The pack of ten is 1750 FD (which is 175 FD) http://www.furvilla.com/shop/31?type=openable

sometimes you'll see cheaper ones when you search the stalls, my guess is that those were rewards from either the 90-day-log-in, logging in on their birthday or a contest prize)

i think a paintie ticket/250 fd is too small of an amount for the quality. I charge 500 FD/$5 for my smol icons, which is half the price I would charge for an hour worth of work, since they don’t take me quite an hour, typically. I charge $10 per hour spent. That’s just a smidge over minimum wage, and only in certain places.

You can see my smols in my shop, linked in my signature. They aren’t as complex as your icons. So please don’t undersell your work mdear! Art is something unique to you, and should be paid for as such. You have a lovely style, and I can tell you spend time on your work.

Back in the day I used to value them at the 150 FD mark but from what I'm seeing you're right on just doing 250 to be honest... (Might consider even 200 per not sure yet)
Big thanks on the input tho!
And yea I was considering the $ value $15 for them which is what I personally consider fair for my art but from the time I've been over on Lioden it is really up to the site's economy (specially during times like this) so I don't really wanna go too high for people over on Furvilla if that makes sense??

I'll actually be taking FC and FD for them but since I'll be pretty much using it all on paintie tickets thats why I mentioned the tickets xD

If I was to do the value of 175 FD per ticket (since it could be 10 tickets) would that seem fair to ya?
I'll keep that link in mind tho I forgot it existed pft

But I love the style, and the shading + detail is just 100% amazing!
I'd love to be on a pinglist for if you open a shop ^^

Personally when doing $ commissions I tend to charge as to how long they commonly take like if it helps, the icon above took me 3 hours and that was me constantly working on the icon like I didn't take a break. But if I was to say "This icon is worth like $25-$30" I highly doubt anyone can pop up sooo ahh yea

As of now the icon in $ value is set to $15 and I guess depending complexity or whatever I could charge $20 but thats as far as I'm willing to go.

But still big thank you! Your kind words really mean a lot ;v;

Necroam Wow! I would love to commission you for a headshot like this!
$15/1500FD/1,500,000FC/10 Paintie Tickets would be a great price for them!
Please ping me when you're open for commissions! I would love to pay you in USD, but I can do FD if you prefer!

175fd is how I'd value tickets so I'd say it sounds fair

but, ignoring ticket prices, pricing the icons at $15/1500fd sounds more appealing than 1750fd. aside from being a lower number, round numbers look better ahaha.

Added to the list thank you very much! I really wasn't expecting my art to go anything over 2-3 paintie tickets (at the start I was thinking 2 so ahh ye) wasn't thinking anything over that so thank you xD

smol edit: I really love your paintie! <3

Holy hell these are stunning! I’d agree on the $15/1500FD value for these.
