I just wanted to share this testimonial that was posted on Facebook with my Tumblr followers:
Can I just take a few minutes to say that I have fallen in love with this!!
Plastic Curves Factory Paint Remover is most extremely amazing factory paint remover I have ever used just look at my Power Ghouls Spectra I removed her factory painted “mask” and her lips and she is still in-tacked without a sloppy mess of smudged paint! I SERIOUSLY RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT FOR ALL DOLL REPAINTS!!! Loren Sharpe you have out done yourself with this! I am just so excited to not have to use so much acetone to repaint a doll. Thanks again I can’t wait to use it for future projects.

This is an in-stock item and ships within one business day.
Pricelists Industry vs Fandom.
If anyone would care to donate a coloured comic page for the comic industry standard list I’m willing to accept one and will give credit c8 I would’ve made one if I had an example but I don’t -A-
But yes that’s off my chest.
Of course this is based off my own browsing over price lists and how I work unfortunately my commissioner homie went idle so I can’t confirm the most vs the least one can spend.
I’ve only found one artist thus far that charges nearly as close to industry standard. Even then it’s under the standard. As far a I’m concerned anyone under the standard shouldn’t have complaints about expensive art. Fandom average is hardly one you can live by.
Would you like to get paid $30 for 3-7 days worth of work?
Edit:No I’m not saying what you should/shouldn’t charge for your pieces. That’s up to you.
I’m talking to supposed commissioners that think it’s too expensive.
This is the hours of your life they’re spending.
If you’re gonna put a price tag on that make it worth that time and effort. For your own sanity.
I wanted to post this so those artists that have been discouraged by “too expensive for me” comments.
And updated the photo, $500-9500 for bw art hahaha 6u6
Edit2: I kinda worded “Fandom” to mean like, furry, anime, superhero, not really fan-characters at all. Sorry if that confused/go misread, I’m not sure how to describe this ‘group’ of the average price range 8Ia
Apologies….also didn’t expect for this to be so huge but it’s been interesting reading c8
AND I didn’t feel right stealing from google images for example pictures which is why my own is up there. No I don’t expect $2000+ for it, not even $200, not unless I had to repaint in oils on a big BIG ASS CANVAS haha.
Trust me when I say a lot of artists are paranoid and scared of their own prices. This estimate as far as industry goes is to remind you your time IS worth something. Will we all get there? That’s up to us for how hard we’re willing to go.
I will say though I’ve gotten industry standard payment for LESS quality art years back. The artwork is an embarrassment now, but getting $300ish for it STUNNED me, I was so used to peanuts I didn’t feel I deserved it, made me realise that I’m at least capable though. I lucked out but I knew to keep trying.
That’s the point I want to make really :/ Don’t give up. If you love it.
Whatever you want to do with your life make sure you LOVE doing it and people don’t take advantage of your hard earned skills.
That’s enough rambling from me now I will go back under my rock 8I
Edit3: As people are still missing the point.
Commissioners, don’t expect industry standard artwork for $30. That’s all there is to this post :/ You can stop reading into stuff that isn’t there now, kay.
My custom nature goddess Venus McFlytrap is finally finished, and up on my Etsy! c:
