WHY ART SELLS AT THE PRICES THEY DO!Seeing as lately there have been quite a few people confused on why some art sells for considered "high prices", designs especially, let me try my best to explain why it does and give a bit of insight to the people who dont understand as to why things do sell for what they do.
Artists are Underpricing Themselves
For a very long time, society has conditioned us to believe that everything has to be dirt cheap, art is also included as being perceived as a cheap product and that artists should be treated as cheap commodities. It is a sad reality that many artists have to face when they want to make a career out of their profession, but that doesnt mean we should accept this conditioning, if an artist wishes to price their work high, then they should have every right to. Not only does it take decades for an artist to hone their skills, it takes days, months or even years to finish one piece of work depending on the artistic profession, an artist should be able to get their money's worth for
So this is the place where I just ramble about myself, eh?
Anyways, so just by looking at my gallery you can probably tell that I enjoy doing anime art, and working with Photoshop. Right now I have a lot of sigs, icons, and wallpapers up, but after finally getting some art "training" (I guess you could call a high school art course training? idk DX) I've learned that I REALLY enjoy working with paints! Especially with acrylics!
With that being said, you should expect some more paintings from me I don't really plan on doing more wallpapers, sigs, icons, etc. (unless its a request). I'll be mainly doing fanarts with acrylics from now on (kinda like the works in the featured folder of my gallery). Also, maybe some ink portraits here and there, as I've also discovered that I like working with ink medium!
