Personally not sure why Orikero is so low. I mean you have ones that I assume would take the same amount of time as the feral custom. I like the idea of adding options. Such as with detailed beyond just having the shading and non shading option. Something like highly detailed where characters would have lots of detail or if you do hair texture then add that. While also having the option of simple design. Such as these two shouldn't be done for the same price. I actually do like the idea of raising the prices based on the amount of commissions you can get. If you start them off too high or do a big jump there will be less sales for that period. I do like the idea of you raising from current prices. I also like the idea of the art pack. However I think it could be done better with a package style. Maybe something like a certain percent off for each piece. Example by 2 get 10% off, buy 3 get 15%, buy 4 get 20%, buy 6 get 25%, buy 9 get 30% off, Buy over 10 get 30% off +1 free. As the 750 for 10-15 is way too much of a discount. That would basically be 70% off.

Also I try to make Orikeros a little cheaper as the fanbase is small and not as many know about it or want/afford to pay that much

I like your suggestions, of course I already mentioned price can vary for more complex designs

I saw that but for instance when creating a character for someone or in instances where you would do more detail work that wasn't specifically needed, like adding shine, or if you did more detail in the hair or more fine detail such as on eyes or tentacles that would be a bit different then complex design. Other examples of more detail would be like layer effects such as glowing parts or fog type stuff. I think I saw you do that on a few pieces but may be mistaking.

You'd be correct! I use overlapping luminosity/shading layers on SAI to add more of a glowing effect for my more in depth drawings

Yep I think adding that as an option with a higher cost would be cool.

Nah, it just counts with shading, but it just depends on the drawing ordered.. I usually add those kinds of layers with full-out drawings with backgrounds such as these

I'd say they are low, Especially if you have dollar amounts to play with too, raise the points way higher.
But also how long and how much effort does it take to do these comes to factor.
Points can't pay rent and food easily Money can.
Encourage people to commission with real money.


Say A Bust (with crazy urchin hair shaded and everything) is $5 and the Point Value is 1000
People will say well 1000 points is a bit much but sure I can do $5 that's less than a starbucks coffee

Also even though pixels are small don't undervalue them you know they are just as complicated and sometimes harder than a chibi or even a bust.

throw in some simple chibis or floating heads for $1 or 150 (or whatever you can do fast) to get people to stay on your page. these (or whatever you want) are underpriced but act as starters FOR THE BEGINNERS however it will encourage a better commissioner relationship.

It is better to have high priced items than to "randomly" raise the price later. Kind of like chuck E cheese where the kids see the 5000 ticket prize and someday they will be able to get it. but right now they can buy a 100 ticket toy. They will be angry though if suddenly a toy that was 300 tickets rose to 500 tickets "seemingly by random chance"

Hmm you have a lot of good points thank you I think I will be raising the final prices a little bit but not too drastically for points-money ratio

I think these are too low for the good quality you are giving out. I would definitely raise them if I was you, never undersell yourself too much.

Personally, I would not pay these prices for your work, I would pay mode. When you are open, I might commission ya if I get the money

Hmm, a lot are saying that it is a bit too low so perhaps I will a bit, it's all about supply and demand ;;

I'd love to take in a commission from you I love your characters to death om f

You definitely should consider it. When I started my freelance work, I thought the same and quickly found myself wrong about underselling. Think about the average amount of time it takes for your work and how much you would want to be paid for it.
Also, branching out helps too. I got a lot more business on places like Twitter, Tumblr, etc than I ever did on DA. So it's an idea if you want a lot of business that will for sure pay higher prices.

Aw, thanks. I'll look at how much I am earning and see if I can when you open them.
