At least they "made it", but at what cost.
>>
>>3804861
$5000

what the fuck? That's 10 times more than sakimichan's rates.

Tell me at least that's just a demo and he actually draws something new if you pay.

>>3804861
5000$ for a sketch? Who would pay this much for a sketch like that?
You can get full color character illustrations at the same skill level for around 50$.

An idiot. Luckily for that artist, there are a lot of them in the furry community.

I admire the balls. Things are only worth what you sell them for, and his art is worth a lot to a few idiots.
>>
>>3804868

The whole thing about a "YCH (your character here)" is that someone pays to have their character either painted or drawn in the place of the placeholder, the finished piece tend to look better. Still, 5000$ is absurd.

Why would anyone do this? It's basically just a coloring template - you could just snatch the sketch and fill in your OCs colors yourself. This is beyond retarded, especially since the finished pieces >>3804875 aren't in any way impressive. It's run of the mill furry shit. So how are ppl paying so much for this? Is the creator well known? Is it a status symbol to get a drawing from this person? A prestige object? The ferrari among the furry porn commissions?

Pretty much, most furries are beyond autistic and will spend any amount of money to get their clusterfuck of a character drawn by some big name furry artist. It doesn't even matter whether your art is good, it's mostly about how much cock you can suck and how many connections you can make.

I just got my tax return of $5000. There is NO FUCKING WAY people are paying five grand. I refuse to believe that. Fucking brilliant paintings in real life that are 100 years old cost that much. There is no fucking way in HELL people are paying this. I refuse to believe this ruse.

Autists become very wealthy engineers/programmers/ etc. They dont have a social life to spend money on and they dont go out and by 40,000 dollar vehicles. They like furshit and they spend their autism bucks on furshit.

Imagine what you would spend your money on if you were given a million dollars, its probably somw dope shit. They just buy furry porn instead.

Am that guy

Sure, miles is better than me, that's why I decided to make a study of his style. What makes it appealing and why?

I learned it's all simple forms shaded prettily. This makes sorting out his head/face shapes incredibly easy. I do like the ways he renders renders natural backgrounds, like his heads it is easy to decipher the methods for a pleasing effect.

On the other hand. The bodies I found were incredibly lacking anatomically making them worthless to study. His paws kinda suck balls lacking delicious pawpads, and the hindpaws are sometimes weirdly shaped. The hair looks like a foam hat. The clothes simply extra thickness on top of the already defined body shapes. Also it bothers me it's just shiny skin and never any real hint of fur, makes me think they are people are wearing latex body suits.

No shit, also that's MDF who's style is actually shockingly influential in the furry community.

I think he allows 7 month payment plans. Not unreasonable. The commissioner probably would rather have a popular artist (probably their favorite artist) than spend that money on gifts/trips/dinners at restaurants that month. I mean the commissioner could be very wealthy too. Even upper middle class men have enough money to drop 2k a month on a sugar baby, why is 700 so ridiculous to you?

I'm basic in that realm without the autism. I have a relatively decent job, not top 1% or anything, but I make enough to save a few thousand a month.

but at the same time I really have no money sinking hobbies or social life, so it just saves up. So when I see things I like I just buy them regardless of how much the price tag, and if its something I really want I just get the best I can find. so I drop money on things like nice drawing tablets even though I don't really need them just because i might as well get something quality for my hobby and its a 1 time price.

I’m sorry but this is definitely not true at all. To anyone that thinks they will see even a fraction of fame/money as the op artist by drawing anthro, you won’t. There are so many furry artists that get paid dimes and nickels for their art. The people who spread this type
of misinfo know nothing about the community and get their info from other outrage posts. You can even go on the artist FA and see other furry artists talking about how overpriced his artwork is. For every one artist you see having a successful ych or adoptable sale their are hundreds upon hundreds of other artists who get nothing from it.

You do NOT have to be good to get money from furries they are 99% retarded the 1%, all you have to do is con them into thinking you belong with them make "friends" and they'll throw money at you. People will defend bad behavior from mediocre artist on FA it's the perfect place to con people they literally don't care because if they did they wouldn't reward these people for this shit.

People are too lazy to shop around I guess, it's like how apple makes shit product and can be openly rapped up in scandals and shit but similar to furry artist because people know that name and know it's popular they buy it, they don't bother to look at reviews and buy the nest best thing (or in the case of apple that actual superior thing like android phones). They just accept it and buy the new thing immediately no matter the price hike. There's nothing wrong with capitalism but there is everything wrong with consumerism if that makes sense.

>man its so easy to make thousands of dollars per image

>w-well i just have standards! that's why i've never been asked to do a commission by anyone ever

your average artist, which is about the skill level most people on /ic/ will ever reach at their peak, is going to make maybe $60 on a furry commission, maybe double that if they're particularly good at a nice style.
furries have a saturated market, and if you think "friendship" will change that much you're mistaken. while it will give you a bit of a market, you're not going to be rolling in dough as a result, you'll get maybe 5-10 extra people periodically buying, but everyone and their mom is being "friends" in those type communities.

My point was that a video game usually guarantees 2 to 3 hours of entertainment, assuming all those 83 games took 2 hours to fully complete, that'd be 166 hours of doing something. This painting on the other hand, is just a picture, what would you do with it after a while. Maybe you'd jerk off to it a couple times, hang it up on a wall or, I don't know. Seems like a waste especially when the artwork isn't of extreme quality or interest, it's just a character.

Many many years ago a sfm porn artist took requests and I suggested an obscure thing and he did that thing. Very short, low effort loop. I still wank to it to this day. Imagine having something on this level but professionally drawn, like the porn animations by fuzzamorous. With your very personal sexual fantasy in it doing whatever the fuck turns you on the most. Five grand is a lot but if you have money to waste you can get many many high quality faps from it.

You can't determine the price of artworks based solely on the quality of the art.
MilesDF can charge those amounts because people are willing to pay for his signature.

Demand sets your prices. If there are people out there willing to pay a certain amount of money for your art, then that's the price of your art.

Most smart beginner commission artist start by giving their art a "fair" price based on how much time they spend on it.
You want to make 20 bucks per hour? Your average artwork takes you 5 hours? Then charge 250 bucks for it (50 to cover taxes, fees and promotion time).

- Are people reacting positively and sending you requests for your services at those prices and you can meet the demand? Great, keep going.
- Are people flooding your inbox with requests and you can't manage the huge demand? Fantastic, increase and keep increasing your prices until the demand is manageable.
- Are people ignoring you even tho you are promoting yourself by posting your stuff on socials all around the web? That's too bad, apparently something is wrong and you'll have to lower your prices to attract a clientele. But with that you'll probably need to increase your delivery speed or drop your quality until you gain more traction.

You can't just ask how much you should charge based on your best artwork. This simply isn't how things work in the commissions community.

The thing is that I love the creating process but I hate promoting myself and overall socializing and posting all over the social media. Simply because I have some form of dyslexia or something and when I try to communicate with audience or clients it took me too long (to composite this post took me one hour and 40 minutes fyi). I just want to draw and make some art and money from it. Is there someone who want to be my manager? I mean; you find the jobs for me, I will draw it and you'll get 10% from payment. If anyone is interested please send me a note on FA and 10% from full payment is going into your pocket. Shouldn't be that hard if you are good with letters.
>>
>>3806399
Post your art on those sites that gives you a cut for your art sale (for prints and shit)
That way you don't talk to anyone ever, post your art at the rate you like, and if it's good art that people want to have displayed on their house, you'll sell
If you draw furry futas, you are fucked.

Would be kind of rich for my blood, but I've seen a lot of good artists with high prices, and that's just how it is.

Don't think you'll suddenly get a ton of commissions, noobie.

$5000 is completely ridiculous for a piece you don't even get the rights to. In the TOS it states that you can't make it private and the artist can do what ever they like with your character and profit more off of you how they see fit. I would understand the cost if it was maybe oil on canvas with a nice frame. The idea of buying art is that it appreciates, while this essentially goes to $0 after the fact. Nothing to sell while anyone can come and download what you baught.

You do know that Miles DF is literally the person who made the current furry art style?
He's literally the first person who made furry art how it is.
If you're a modern furry artist, and you practice using anyone who got into the scene after 2010, you're going to be getting influenced by him whether you like it or not, unless you're a mega autist like kalahari who has a nostalgia boner for the 90s, and even then, you can the the MilesDF influence in his art.

I didn't know Miles DF was Jeremy Bernal, Onta, Wolfy-nail, Tsampikos, any other generic simplistic tracer/selection and airbrush tooler.

>He's literally the first person who made furry art how it is.

I don't think you know how long the furry fandom has been around

>If you're a modern furry artist, and you practice using anyone who got into the scene after 2010, you're going to be getting influenced by him whether you like it or not, unless you're a mega autist like kalahari who has a nostalgia boner for the 90s, and even then, you can the the MilesDF influence in his art.

If by "practice using anyone who got into the scene after 2010" you mean "looked at what stupid furries were into and copied it in order to make money" then I'm gonna interject and say that that isn't a style.

>you can the the MilesDF influence in his art.
Of reproducing image as fast as possible with no attention to detail and making generic crisp air brushing? To make it as appealing, saturated with colors and romanticized flash thrown in? That's not a MilesDF trademark, that is just every furry watching youtube tutorials on what the "multiply" layer can do for you. By your logic we may as well just call furry art "hentai" since hardly any of the lazy fuckers ever even use a fur texture. Because then that would be too hard you see.

>This makes me jealous

What exactly am I jealous of? The money made? It's an entire fandom centered around pure materialism and hyper sexuality, so of course it's easy to get money of the people in it. The only "work" involved is spending years building up a portfolio of dicks to sucker in the dumber richer furries. Oh and you also have to deal with the sensitive welps, and listen to their bs sob stories.

>Also it's been sold btw.

I never expected it NOT to sell. The dumb furfags treat commissions by popular artists like a dick waving contest because like I said, their entire fandom has it's foundation based in pure materialism. Sometimes they even have auctions for them. Nothing of what they do or are is beneficial to society, in fact they are degenerative to society because they literally promote dehumanization both in their consumption and the fact that some actually believe they aren't humans. So;

>Getting jealous that people are paying to promote their own philosophically void batshit insane concepts

Acting and behaving like a sane and rational human being is a good start. Not having a mental disease is another. Oh and paying taxes and working a job that benefits other functioning humans is another plus. Tell me what beneficial function smut art produces.

>if you think that making concept art for Hollywood bulshit propaganda movies or videogame movies is any better than drawing furry dicks I have a bad news for you buddy.
what part of:
"Making money off others stupidity is what stupid humans do best."

did you not understand? It just depends on how stupid the human you're working with is.
For instance:
Stupid humans have a need for signs, graphic designer makes signs that serve a function, but this function is beneficial for human beings and benefits them
Vs
Stupid humans have a WANT for pictures of naked mythical creatures. Furfags, Anime artists and smut artists fulfill those WANTS which do not serve a beneficial function whatsoever.

I know this seems like a lot, but please take into consideration that the majority of furries have really complicated patterns on their body or they have odd hairstlyes and proportions. Miles DF basically only draws dogs and cats.
The main thing about this that I don't like is that the pose isn't interesting and the fetish doesn't make any sense with the background unless there's more to it or someone gets the reference.

If you want to make cheap money, buy a $20 chibi base from a popular furry artist and spam $5 adoptables. Then, offer different views and versions for an extra price. You'll pay for the base in just a couple of wandering sales. You don't even have to draw extra parts on the ones that come with extra eyes and hair.

what site is this and what fandom?
>>
>>3812391
I have more experience with tumblr since it’s really easy to be found thanks to tags
Generally Nintendo franchises are a goldmine they’re popular between all type of people therefore more likely to share it, something like Pokémon which gen 8 is right around the corner and will explode soon so I suggest drawing a comic/fanart if the soon to be shown new Pokémon as FAST as possible
People tend to look on social media as soon as they announce anything
Shows/games with big OC potential are also good like splattoon, Pokémon, SU and ect. Theses are more likely to commission you and if they like you enough will keep coming back.
Anime commissioner in my experience had always been more picky/cheap so I tend to avoid those and furry commissioners are more likely to keep coming back and giving tips the bad part is that they expect to becoming friends while describing why pregnant wolves makes them hard.
