Artist of the Moment


Visit my shop View my bio

Hi everyone! I'm currently in my last year of university, graduating in May next year! I love art and I've tried my hand at various things such as drawing anime/chibis/doodles but it seems like I'm better at doing pixel art, so I've stuck with that since. I'm self-taught, so I'm still experimenting around with different styles. I've been running an active shop for over a year with a few hiatuses in between. I love GASR as it has a great community where I can interact with fellow artists and art lovers :) I've made many friends here over the years and I hope that continues for a long time to come!

Okay, I'll be honest, I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask this since it's asking more of an opinion rather than a specific answer.  So if this is in the wrong area of the forum, feel free to punch me in the throat.

I have both a customs shop and a premade shop.  I was wondering if people normally charge more for their premades, or their customs.  I feel like customs are harder to do in the sense that someone has a certain expectation of how the art should be, and they're waiting for you to finish so there's a little more pressure to get it done fast.  On the other hand, premades can be made completely in your comfort zone.  You take as long as you want, and they often turn out better because they're usually in your comfort zone.

So do you charge more for effort, or more for quality?

I think both are important.
But definitely quality > effort for me.

Cos like.. person A can spend 2 days on a piece and have it look honestly no where near 15k, but price it as such because "they tried" and they "worked hard on it".
Whereas person B can spend 2 minutes and produce exactly the same thing that person A produced in 2 days.
At the end of the day it isn't about who worked harder or longer hours, it's about who produced the better results. Because from the end result you can easily tell who has more experience etcetc.

If this were school and we're just focusing on personal growth and development etc., no money involved, then yes. Sure, effort > quality.
But here we're talking professional and charging for your products and services, so imo, quality > effort.

I normally charge the same price for both.
Like if I'm offering 160x220 edits in customs section, but in the premades section I made some 160x220 edits to sell, I would price my premades the same as I price my customs. Same as if I offered paintings in customs and made a painting to sell as a premade, I would price them the same.
And a few of my friends do this ^ as well.
There are definitely times when the price can fluctuate though, so it's not as if your pricing has to be absolute and set in stone.

Feel free to PM me if you need any assistance regarding Auctions or any of the things I fall under on the Contact Page.

Okay cool, that's really something to think about then. I had seen that most people charge more for the quality of their premades than the effort on their customs, but I can never really really tell what my premades look like to other people so I always left it at PYP.
