Why would people pay actual money to have a 6 inch drawing of a virtual animal/mayor??Stop milking it, yes your art is good. GO make a big master piece THEN sell it!! Use the money that we get in-game for the dam drawing. Who has $25 laying around for a shaded drawing of a mayor and a mouse???
we sell art because there are people who want our art but we can’t just do it for free or in-game money because it takes our time and energy and it makes sense to pay for a service?? and fuck you if you think “master pieces” are the only things that can be sold - if people want to buy sketches, small chibis, silly little gifs, etc, then that means there’s a market for it and of course we’re going to try to appeal to that.
people pay actual money for artwork of their OCs, mayors, etc, because they - unlike you - understand that in order to get something they want that requires the effort of another person, they should compensate them. usually with money. and stop trying to guilt artists for “milking it” - let’s face it - we need money and if people are interested in purchasing our work, of course we’re going to do it. there’s nothing wrong with making big “master pieces” and selling prints, but there’s also nothing wrong with charging people for drawings of their mayors.
