Much art. Many years gone. Wow.

OK soooo in a sneaky way to kinda-sorta figure out what I can reasonably charge for my work now that I'm playing again, I'm holding an auction. Makes sense, yes? Hopefully I get everything right in one post without edits.

All the basic auction info and things


But what the heck are you bidding on? Most recent example here:


And if you aren't really into Kansas up there then you can see a lot of other examples by clicking this imgur album right here.

Edit: Auction complete! Thanks everyone.

Slot 1: Serene - 33mil/1000 CSC/some combination of the two
Slot 2: Quirina - 22mil

Wait what?

Did this auction really just last 2 mins? Am I misreading the market terribly? :o

Aww, well thank you. Birds I would objectively say I'm weaker on (there is one example in the imgur album link on the first post) so I'll let you look first before accepting your bid.

Ummmm since this went so insanely quickly I guess I could auction a second slot for a much higher autobuy so that there would actually be.. an auction...? LOL

If it helps, the conversion atm is:
$1.00 = 100CSC = 3mill sP

Ahaha

@renaxxakat
Thanks! I'm just still kinda in shock that it went that quickly. Assuming Serene still wants the piece given my one bird example.

Is it totally frowned upon to add a second higher slot at this point? I'd still have both pieces done by around the new year, with Serene's being given first priority. I spent more time formatting that post than actually seeing it get used LOL

@Tiki
Yeah that was ridiculously fast AHAHA but I mean 33mill isn't that bad for a buyout since lots of people have prices similar to that as their normal commissions.

I'd suggest adding a second slot, yeah, since I'm absolutely sure that more people would want your art haha. Also maybe this time don't have a buyout option so that actual bidding happens. x'D

I was going to auto too but I was beaten! This is really not much for a piece like that considering the current market! I'll say 2-2.5k for something like that would be more in the market prices!

Yeahhhh... I think I was making 8-10mil per piece in 2011 when I was last here so obviously things have changed economy-wise LOL. I thought the 33mil option was way out there but I guessed wrong.

Okay, I guess the first slot is Serene's and as of now there is a second slot with no autobuy. Go nuts, everyone! (Editing the first post right meow)

Two things!
One: If you want more examples for your subeta art, you drew pics of my pets Ratly and all of my cats together if you want to use those xD p.s I totes printed those both out and they are hanging on my wall

Two: Can I start the bid for the second slot at 10mil? ^_^

@Lilissy

Ah! You were the cat person :) I just chose a random smattering of my old pics for the new imgur album but I have yours still on my tinypic account. It's really interesting finding out/remembering who I drew what art for now several years later.

Thanks for your bid! I'll only update the first post once a day or so depending on how active this auction ends up being.

Current High Bid: 10mil

Edit: Hope everyone can forgive me for pinging one last time, since the auction for slot 2 ends at midnight tonight. I'm fine with sP, CSC or a combination of the two. Thanks for bidding!

Not sure if its important now, but you also drew my Mockingbird several years back now, so another example of your birds is right here.

Its great to see you back Tiki!
And 14 mil on the auction slot 2.
