Pricetag?
«: January 27, 2010, 11:02:35 AM»
I'm looking for a price range for my remappable canines.
I have some anthros and other ferals in my gallery as well, but for now I'm focusing on these.
Most of the commissions I get are for wolves and dogs, as you can tell.
Would you be so kind as to help me out? I'd appreciate it. <3

<<< Newest ... Oldest >>>

If you have any advice, I'd like to hear it as well.
This means I'm looking for constructive criticism.

I'm currently charging $5/GD each.

These look good. I've never bought a port, but if I were going to I'd say you're worth $10 at least, so I think you could charge 15 easy.

I would say $5.  The "wolf" anatomy leaves a lot to be desired as they all look more like dogs than wolves and the shading and detail is very lax. I would suggest  suggest researching wolf anatomy, movement, and expressions and work a bit on more realistic fur detail and consistent light sources.

Thank you, I had no idea as I was charging $5. ^^

Thanks for the advice-- I'm charging $5 now and I agree that my work isn't close to perfect. I guess I should have mentioned that the second remap and the first non-remap are dogs, not wolves. I do hope to improve all of the things you listed. (:

See, I see no difference at all between the anatomy and detailing you have in the dogs and the wolves. They look exactly the same. I would suggest sitting down with a photo of the animal you're going to work on so you can get a better idea of what they look like, this way it's very easy to distinguish between wolf and dog.

i say $5

i like the colors you use a lot, but there isn't much depth to the ports at all. you've only use like, 3 - 4 shades per and it makes the characters look really flat.

Looks like I chose the right price to start at. :b
I'll be using more dog/wolf references for my next portraits, I can see what you mean.

How do I make remappable portraits have more depth? I've tried using more shades but the recoloured images always look overdone. When I look at other, popular artists' work I see they've used four to five, like me.

Yeah, I use just about every shade when doing remaps, if anything I don't use all of the really light highlights.

I'm going to say $10. FAZ has far too many feral artists it seems. Sure you may not be perfect, but really who is? :) I really like the non-remap colors. If ya just keep on practicing, your work will improve!

Hey, I'd never noticed that before. :b Thanks for these examples, guys. I'm making a couple new portraits now to post later, with more contrast.

Pretty nice.

I'd say 5-7GD, depending on the amount of detail you add.
