So therefore i'm going to try and open up for COMMISSIONS. That means paying this dumb guy here so he makes arty things for you or someone else. Will this ever make me even a penny? LET'S FIND OUT! So anyways, my goal is approximately $75.5, since that's what the tablet i have in mind costs. In case you're curious, it's this thing: www.trust.com/en/all-products/…
"But Shook," you say, "don't you already have a tablet or two?" And that is completely correct (and also very observant of you)! However, although i do have two tablets to go with my laptop and gaming rig, they are of very different size, and switching between them is hella difficult (which i guess could be mitigated by switching them around, though). On top of that, my Bamboo has an annoying double-click issue that makes it connect the ends of my small strokes all the time, and that looks terrible.
Had i not already spent a gagillion money on other things, i would just buy it instantly. It just happens that i have spent over 800 dollahs on educationally relevant things, and that's a rather large chunk of money. ON TOP OF THAT, i am also paying for therapy sessions with a psychologist, which is also a fairly significant expense. Therefore, it'd be nice if i could earn enough money to buy this thing instead of relying on my dwindling reserves. However, instead of going the fast route and just taking a one-day stint at the warehouse, i'm going to try my luck at the SLOW AND UNCERTAIN WAY, which is to art my way to the fairly achievable goal.
But of course, this requires help from others (codename U GUISE), because paying myself doesn't make much sense. It is EXTREMELY ambitious of me to expect ANYTHING from this, but hey, fortune favours the bold, right? :v
So this is where i am completely fucking clueless. I have NO idea what is fair pricing, so i'm going to start off in the low end, although i will price it according to the required effort.SKETCH -

$15 (it is difficult)
Oh yes, you bet it's a thing. :v
However, due to how pixel art is very sensitive to scale, i'm going to have to put some special pricing in effect for this. Basically it goes like this:BASE PRICE:
Average image dimensions divided by 20 (in dollars) OR
$1 per 2,000 pixels, whichever is larger and rounded up
. This pricing is for character sprites
and the likes; i'm not sure what to do about sceneries, but i can't imagine you're going to want those from me. :v (if you do, pop me a message and we'll sort things out)MODIFIERS:
These are essentially multipliers of the base price due to variations in work required.
- Lines without
shading or colour: x0.5
- Lines with
(basically like above but with flat colours)
- Lines with
All the above are WITHOUT BACKGROUND
. For backgrounds, add
the following multipliers to the above:
- Simple scene: +0.2x
- Detailed scene: +1.0x (note: magnification is free)
Do note, if i expect something to be trivially easy or particularly hard, i may adjust the price accordingly, BUT NOT in the middle of everything. If i am actively working on something that turns out to be much easier/harder than expected, the price will NOT
be adjusted. If i, before starting, can see that price adjustment is necessary, i will notify you of this.
I reserve the right to refuse any offer for any or no reason whatsoever, although i probably won't be doing that a lot.
I also reserve the right to change the price list
at any time without prior warning (but this will not affect people who have already ordered something).
My mentality on requests
is the same as usual; if you happen to throw an idea at me that i really like, i might do it for the shits and giggles.
SO LET'S GET THIS PARTY STARTED EH WOT
So yeah this is probably pretty important. I'll be using PayPal because i can't be assed to set up anything more complicated than that.
