2 deviants said No, keep the current one.
2 deviants said Yes, I would be happy to make one for you.
1 deviant said Yes, another version of Tink could freshen up the site
No deviants said Yes, an icon a day, that's all we ask
No deviants said No, who looks at icons anyway.
No deviants said Maybe, I know ( *blank* ) who could make one for you (cheep) comment below

Are you sure it's Jade? by jkrolak
Are you sure it's Jade?

Reposting of commissioned art

To be honest I'm not 100% sure if this is one of mine or :iconmodmyths: that got misfiled, as we often share, have similiar ideas, and borrow plot lines or scenes from each other.

But Powergirl has a lot of questions concerning the credentials of whoever certified the "rare/expensive" Chinese carving of a Jade horse. Jade certainly doesn't tingle like that. And based on the minor repair chip she spotted, PG is pretty sure that it isn't really green either. Is that .... red?

Airi the Centauress from TWHE

Reposting of commissioned art

Thanks to a magical disguise from Celcia, Airi expected little difficulty is checking the nuble elfin school girls for any of the hidden stray spell fragments they would need to return home. As a centauress gym teacher is was only natural that she supervise them in the showers. And it felt so natural, with amazingly realistic detailing right down to twitching ears and swishing tial. So why were Ceicia and her assistant Annette struggling so hard to to keep from giggling and saying it would help her fit in with their world. It was only going to be a temporary role while the searched to school .....

Loiscena by jkrolak

Reposting of commissioned art

Maybe agreeing to model for Lana was not sure a good idea after all, as Lois had the feeling that it was going to be a little difficult to remove her costume.

Thanks for the llama! You do commissions too? What are your prices?

Sorry wrong end of the pipeline, I am usually the patron getting the commission. I have been posting the works done for me when the artist takes down the picture from their gallery.

When it comes to pricing, I am of two minds. The collector side of me will always appreciate gifts, freebies, and complementary illustrations when I can have them done.

The realist side is a bit more practical.

1) This is not a race to the bottom. You should always price according to the time you need, materials to produce work, market, and skill level
2) This is the internet. That means you are competing world wide. Factor in currency exchange cost in your base price including Paypal fees
3) You are in competition with EVERYONE at your price level - be prepared to do something  (color a little better, draw a little bigger, add a little extra detail, lines are inkes) to stand out form your completion but don't break rule 1.
4) Know and respect your limits. You know how much time you need on average and keep the number of clients manageable. A long client list may look impressive but can scare off potential customers (who are often paying in advance) and give the impression you are overwhealmed.
5) Be willing to adjust prices - no body buying try advertising, better samples, or *gulp* a sale (may temporarily break rule 1). Too much work - time to raise prices and perhaps get a little pickier on projects you can do.
6) Points (site credits) are nice, but MONEY talks. Cash work comes first, then credits, then fun/freebies.
7) Everyone has own interpretation of rules / fair price - be willing to look at all then taylor them to best suite your needs.

Hope that helps.
