I'm selling these two designs as a trainer set for 3,000 points total!
And before you say "that's too much, I don't have that any points" let's just break it down, shall we?
In terms of work time, each character that I draw takes at least 3 hours, sometimes four, with the initial design process, sketch, lineart, coloring, shading and finishing touches. This is two designs, so I estimate that I spent about 7 hours total with these guys.
Now, 3,000 points on DA is equivalent to $30. So let's divide 30 by 7 and we get a little over $4.25 an hour. That is ridiculously cheap labor, if you think about it.
Most art is severely underpriced, and it's largely due to the fact that people just want to buy things as cheaply as possible, and they don't stop to consider how it effects the artist.
So, I'm not saying this to guilt anyone, if no one buys them then I wont be offended. I just don't want people to comment and say, "I wish I could but I don't have enough points" or "That's too expensive" because in reality, no it's not too expensive, it's actually extremely cheap in terms of work time.
That's a main reason I stopped offering commissions, because to make it worth my time, I would have to charge a high number of points, and most people just want cheap prices for quality art, something I think is incredibly backwards.
Anyways, that's my rant, but I would love these guys to go to a great home that they will get used in! Comment below if you are interested!
