While i'm in the middle of trying to improve my style i also wanna let u guys know that I opened up dA commissions! The reason that the prices look so big is because of the small (i think 5%) fee dA uses for letting u do commissions through the site's currency?
I used to think it was a big problem but I don't see much of a problem with it tbh... Like deviantart acknowledges that you dont HAVE to use their commission platform and even then the amount of the fee that is going towards the artist earnings isn't so miniscule that it's a big problem. If you consider that paypal asks for a service fee of up to $2 sometimes when receiving your payment for a commission, so a $30 payment actually comes out to like $28 on the artists' side (it depends on whether you mark it as paying for goods and services vs sending money to a friend)
But yeah basically what I'm saying is that I like how deviantart's commissions platform is more regulated and kinda professional
and yeah so im open for commissions look for the module on my page!!!
