Pricelists Industry vs Fandom.
If anyone would care to donate a coloured comic page for the comic industry standard list I’m willing to accept one and will give credit c8 I would’ve made one if I had an example but I don’t -A-
But yes that’s off my chest.
Of course this is based off my own browsing over price lists and how I work unfortunately my commissioner homie went idle so I can’t confirm the most vs the least one can spend.
I’ve only found one artist thus far that charges nearly as close to industry standard. Even then it’s under the standard. As far a I’m concerned anyone under the standard shouldn’t have complaints about expensive art. Fandom average is hardly one you can live by.
Would you like to get paid $30 for 3-7 days worth of work?
Yeah hey, everyone look at this. This is what EVERY artist should be able to charge, even if just the lower rungs.
ahahah ok, this actually made me remember one moment that happened on a local Con this summer, we were doing commissions there, and we were drawing A5 format chibies for 5LT(2$) they were lined, colored and looking all nice and this girl comes to us asking about prices and we tell her that chibi drawing is 2$ and she said: wow that`s too expensive and walked away.
ahahahah if only she saw this post :”D
seriously though. I sell my stuff for so cheap when I could get away with much more. Mostly because my friends are either highschoolers or college students and I can understand not having access to or having the money in general, but I’ve sold a print of an unfinished piece for $175 before to an artist/art collector friend, so I know my stuff is worth or close to being worth industry standard prices.
Its hard to see people whine at me that $10 is too expensive for a fully shaded single body when i should be selling them for more 8( But I know a lot of other people enjoy the prices because they can actually buy stuff at that price, so it’s worth it for them more than anything.
This is one of the big reasons I’m trying to get more into going to cons that aren’t of the anime variety: most of the kids at these things have no concept of how much things should cost. At least at a comic book convention, even with my new pricing, I’d still be pretty cheap in comparison to, say, a guy who might have been in the industry for a few years, and will (and a number of them have) charge $25 and upwards for a pencil sketch.
My persona Ven in some winter garb. Started from a very rough sketch on 12/17/12 and gave it more definition today, 1/8/13 while waiting with my mate at the doctors office.

I know I’m blowing ya’ll dash boards up like it’s nothing (making up for week by week hiatus a bit ago) but I’m cleaning out my dA ( http://www.deviantart.com/ ) inbox cause everything is caught up at work…even all my side project. (
