I'm sorry if it's very little to you, but some artists with talent a bit less than yours sell personalized headshots for a thousand or two thousand gold.

Your art is amazing, however, and I give my thanks. It didn't mean to insult it. I just wanted to pay around that amount for art, not pay for your genetic testing kit specifically.

I wasn't able to see your art before- the link wasn't working for me. So this is the first time I've seen your art.

Edit: I'm aware this might be pitiful to you, but I can give you 25k for it if you want.

Before I forget. >.< Could I get a bust shot of my avatar please? No rush, since I never really change it.
For 10$ or diamond equivalent.
Genetic test kit will most likely go on sale for 1k diamonds when the summer fest starts at the end of August by the way, so that'd say you 500 diamonds off the usual price. (Just wanted to give a heads up.)

Edit: The art market on this site is awful. You have gorgeous art. Unfortunately, very few players will pay for the time put into good art, which is a bit of a shame since it really isn't as difficult as it's made out to be to make gold on this site.

People selling for literal pennies (aka 1000 gold) are heavily underselling, which happens because Sylestia has many young users that do not understand art pricing and the fact that art is a luxury that does not have to be cheap for stingy people and those who cannot afford it.
That doesn't mean you can use their lack of knowledge to get free art and get away with it without someone telling you that it's WRONG at some point.
In case it wasn't clear to you, artists spend years on perfecting their craft. And often spend hours on pictures.
Pictures made exactly to commissioner's specification and wishes, that only they will have any form of rights to (aside from the artist) and no one else. If you, for some reason, cannot wrap your head around this.. try going into a tailoring store and expect to pay factory price for a custom tailored piece. I'm sure they'll be happy about that, lol!
So if you cannot pay the artist a respectful price (inform yourself on ACTUAL art markets, it's only a google search away!) do not ask for art. :)
And yes. 25k is absolutely pitiful and another insult.
If links do not work for you.. hey, how about you just ask OP for an alternative? ;) Wouldn't even have cost a penny to do that.

Sure! Whichever method of payment you prefer. I'm out of town atm 'til Monday so I probably won't be done until some time next week but I do have my tablet with me anyway incase time somehow frees up while I'm here. Ty for the info on the kits btw i had no idea when any deals would be happening next

I noticed not just the art market on the site suffers but just the art community as well for the people in it for the freebies. I personally couldn't imagine going around asking for art without willing to tip at least 100k. I mean thats what i did on gaia before hyperinflation

I was just going to ghost further replies and leave that interaction at what it was but...
"some artists with talent a bit less than yours sell personalized headshots for a thousand or two thousand gold"
"I wasn't able to see your art before- this is the first time I've seen your art"
Ah, the hero the art community needed with the blind 3k overpaying.

I don't care what other artists accept when the standard is a rip off.
if you're going to pay someone that little it's better to not pay them at all. offering such a shoddy price kinda just says "hey i think you're art is bad and virtually useless!" so at that point in time you've proven yourself completely oblivious or unsympathetic to the purpose of this thread unless you legitimately thought I would draw Four Hundred people at 5k per request while spending at least one hour on each when I'm 1.1mil out of 3mil away from a genetic test kit (given gems would go for 1:2000 like they did before independence day event.) That's like 400+ hours and I'd be better off just leaving the site loool.
So if you haven't figured out yet, I wasn't looking for someone to pay for the kit. I wanted to draw a few people for sizeable amounts to get me closer to my goal.
I've been emotionally over this since you first posted hence why i even drew you to begin with so please just hang onto your money and be nice to other artists when the time comes. thanks <3

holy... my savior. I'm not even joking I read your post after replying to the other 2 first but I didn't want to lose my thoughts on them if i'd continue to read and i figured if your post was against me i'd lose all my train of thought then and there. Dang... I could have withheld on all prior sass because I already had someone slaying for me. Honestly, i wasnt even half way through that post and I was like, 'someone turn on the ac because roasted' That was like 6 points i would have loved to address but didn't have the energy and mental capacity to go about it so concisely haha
I appreciate you
