Help me understand?

Posted by smog1 8 days ago

 

I had re-posted my advert on ych commissions but I am not getting any orders.

I know I cannot force anyone to get a commission from me, but I would like to understand why my ych comm templates are not selling.

Ther are of a reasonable price and they are easy to fit the majority of female to male characters.

Maybe you lovely people could give me some clarity?

I mostly don't buy them because of the fact they cost money and either i struggle with transactions, or find that paying for art is a bit of a wierd purchase.

I actually had plans to commission you, but I recently had a bit of a financial hit, so my plans are delayed.

what would you say is your maximum amount youd want to spend on in terms of a drawing?

I prefer to judge amount on an artist by artist situation. For you, I'd probably range from... $15 minimum to $35 maximum, depending on what my wallet is looking at these days.

Might be a combination of what the ych poses are (in this case not vore-related on a vore site) and its an inopportune time for most that have seen it.

No they are good, I am just saying they are probably less popular than your vore-related ones.

I think it's just a very rough time financially for a lot of people all over the world unfortunately. Perhaps you might have better luck if you cast a wider net of more fetishes?

My gallery speaks for itself in terms of the fetish i go for. It is teh same for other artists. Some are limted, others are not but most would be way more expensive than what i charge

I believe it to be a combination of several factors, not one individual thing.

-A lot of people simply don't have the money right now
-You might have just gotten unlucky with the poses you chose not being what people had in mind
-You don't have as much of a following as some bigger ones so not as many will see the posts
-Some might have the money but prefer someone else's style, or have to pick between a few people and you drew the short straw

I very much doubt it's any one thing, just a run of things adding up to bad luck. I personally don't have the funds for commissions at the moment, and whenever I do I need to weigh what I want against a lot of factors.

Your factors do make a lot of sense.

One counter argument is that no one tells or shows me any particular pose they would like me to use.

Otherwise I do agree with your points and may have to consider that no one is interested in my ych templates/poses

I would put it down to mostly lack of funds and interest in the current time. Massive artists will always have people flocking to them, but smaller ones with a more specific following will have times when they have lots of traffic and times where they have barely any.

Most likely just a bit of an interest drought, I wouldn't think it's anything particular about you. You do quick, quirky and quality work.

For me its a factor of just not having the money now as the biggest, and being unsure if any of my ocs would look good in one of the poses. I don't have any picture references to show but some ideas possibly for some different ych commissions would be to make some slice of life poses of a man and woman couple, maybe some where the female has a big pregnant and/or vore belly. Slice of life like going on a date or watching tv or playing games. Idk, just some ideas I thought up now, ultimately up to you on what to make the ych's.
