Crit/Price My Art

PRICE CHECK
Portraits
I've been doing portraits for a little while now, and I have
always charged $10 for one. Just wondering if you think
they're worth more/less or if the original price is fine. Any
critiques are welcomed as well, thank you!

Examples:



Character Art
I'm also considering doing these more often -
about how much do you think it is worth? Again,
critiques are welcomed.

I'd spend $10-$15. Everything looks well done to me; the contrast is especially nice.

I've seen your work before and I enjoy your style a lot. Because of the economy most people might not want to see prices go up, though. D:

Thank you, and yeah I can see how raising the price wouldn't be so good. I might just leave it at the original price then

I really love your ports, especially the shading. I'd stay at around 10, maybe 15 for your ports. The only thing that sort of bugs me is the human-ish faces, they seem alittle out of proportion. But besides that, your ports are amazing ;D

Thank you (:

Could you tell me what exactly do you mean by
a little out of proportion so I can fix it in the future?

I think she means proportion of the limbs and such. Like the first one the hand seems a bit small (should cover the face when opened). Shoulders are also my worst enemy, I can never get the width and angle quite right.

I will say however that I do like your vibrant colors.

Yeah now that I look at it, it does seem a bit off. I should probably use references, thanks for pointing it out

You seem to suffer from shaky/sketchy line syndrome and the same lighting in every picture.  I'd say 10 is fair, though I'd probably lean towards slightly less (7) if those shaky lines aren't fixed up.

Shakey lines? Okay, thank you for your critique.

I think he's trying to get at the visible leg of the first port, the line shown seems  a bit uneven. As for price, I wouldn't value at $7, I'd say $10 is a very fair price. These are of very good quality. A few improvements to be made, but there is no one in the world who could NOT stand to improve.

i think they're gorgeous.. obviously in the first port where the leg is visible, the 'shaky line' is supposed to be where the knee begins. if it weren't for monetary issues with everyone and their mothers at the moment, i and probably others would be willing to pay more than 10-15 for these pixelings. x)

Actually, it's on all the pictures all over, especially where there's curves. For some reason the lines "dance" if I stare at them too much, usually a symptom of them being a bit uneven. I'm not sure if it's an attempt at texture failing or if there's a few stray pixels, but either way it makes my eyes hurt.

Not trying to be rude, but just being honest. Though the overall composure is nice, between the same lighting angle in every piece and the eyeache-inducing lines I feel improvements can be made.

Goodness. I know criticism is good but these people find every little thing thats wrong! xD
As for me, your portraits are amazing, especially your coloring skills.

Maybe up it a little? 15dollars? x3

Otherwise, just keep your price at 10 and as you get more experience and more popular, up it.
And i'm sure that'll happen soon! ;p

Excellent feral art. I think that pricing goes along with skill and how good you look amongst competition.  $10 minimum, and $15 on your really good stuff, like the wolf by the hookah.
