So I kinda use commissioned Art as a "conduit" between the art, and my novel. Now I know I have not put out much original art as of late, but its because I have started a job last year and my job requires me to work 4-5 days a week, working 12 hours a day, and I rarely have ambition to put out any art work.
This journal entry is about some recent interactions with some commissioners; Artists. I am trying to get some quality work done, for my novel, and the thing I have noticed, is one price is advertised to me. Then I provide with some art reference, and concept for the art, then the artist will change the price, and doubling and if not quadrupling the price after I show them the pictures.
I am not sure What the hell is going on with the community but, that is extremely rude. If you advertise a set price at first don't raise it, that makes you look disrespectful to your customers, and yeah, don't be surprised for some rude comments
I don't know if this guy was trolling me, But he offered me a single picture with a detailed background for $250, Then raised it to $1,500 after giving the details. Now am I going to get a brand new cellphone and laptop with that picture? or plane tickets and a overnight stay at a 5 star Hotel to watch you draw it with that price. No. Do NOT pull this "uh WELL I gotta pay duh bills" because You should have a full time job, and be paying your bills, but do commissions to help pay for those bills, Not entirely relied upon.
I mean if I want a quality picture I am okay with paying a $100 for a picture. But if you up the price to $350, after agreeing to $100, Yes I am going to be upset, and yes I will be rude, and yes, I will blow you off even though I was the one who messaged you.
Don't raise the prices for any reason just because you want more money at the last second, or for any reason what so reason.
