If you know anything about how art commissions are sold in the industry, Sun and I are both undercharging. $12.50 is nothing. 
This is a talent and takes time to do, not just something anyone can do.
 
Imagine a typical blue collar job at minimum wage $7.25 (in my state)
I spend around 2-3 hours on a typical avatar/spray commission and I'm charging $10. 
 
Sun is a traditional artist, and she's charging only $12.50 per watercolor drawing which probably takes a certain amount of hours as well, but since she's a traditional artist, she has materials (pencils, watercolors, brushes, etc) that she has to worry about too.
 
If you seriously think a personalized art commission is "too expensive" when it's only $10-20, you are wrong.
 
I can fucking walk into Chipotle and buy a burrito and a drink for $10. Is that really how much our art is worth?

I see where you are coming from. I see you are under charging, but to me it is a lot. It is just my opinion, and my opinion is usually wrong. It is what I predict. I usually come out as an asshole/douche, but it is just me and my opinion. I'm sorry, goodbye.

Yeah, it can seem like a lot when you've never had a job nor handled money before. It's all right mate.

In my life, Chipotle burritos are one of the best forms of payment.

@TheEverythingThatJustHappened

Ifeltthepassioninthatrant

I, oh, uh. Oh dear. Oh. Um, yes. Yes.

 

Yes.

 

Yes.

 

Thank you Pariah for explaining~ Oho~

I'm sorry if my price bump has upset anyone or meh . </3

 

Oho, I dunno Pariah~ Grapefruit Izzie and burrito with Guac is rather heavenly~

Eheh, but on a somewhat serious note, art can be rather subjective. So the labeled price on art will also fluctuate between people's opinions.  But I like to stick to the general rule of material value and time spent which is what these prices are based off of.

 

If peep's don't think my oodles of doodles are worth the price, well, that's their opinion and I respect that. <3 Just don't gotta purchase my jazz I suppose. xD

 

@Savage

 

Anyone who buys me Chipotle will get a drawing out of me~ xD

That'sactuallyanhoneststatement

 

@Espurr

 

Nope.

How do I put this in perspective, I feel that even with the price bump these prices are still dirt cheap. The people (@sun, @perplexingPariah, ect.) who make these things put their free time, and dedicated hard work into making something that looks wonderful for you to enjoy for as long as you keep it. A couple of keys is a drop in the bucket when it comes to paying for art, and I encourage everyone to pay more. 

 

I won't get into specifics on how much I've paid for things, but it's way more than what has ever been listed because I feel like my payment is a form of a thank you for all the work that you've put into something. I'm not so much paying extra for the product directly, but I'm paying because it's a way for me to show you my gratitude.

But as Pariah said. If you haven't had a job yet, it can seem like a lot of money.

Its good to see that people aren't just taking advantage of low prices and actually encouraging raises for the great work. 

Glad I got me a colored pencil jazz commission fast enough.  :phappy:

At first I sat like, "Ohoho~ Silly Lady~ lol, burritos. Ha... Haha... Wait."

 

Then I realized.

 

A personal delivery is so possible. .__________.

I go to your area place almost every week.

 

Edit: I can't stand typos. At least ones not made on purpose. </3
