Recently, I've been doing adoptables and I'm massively surprised at how popular they are...
5/6 of the first batch sold for $5 each (The last is still unsold with a bid of essentially $1.20 in DA points)
2/4 of the second batch for $6 each (The other two were sold for $6 worth of deviantart points which =480)
I feel that it is quicker for me to do designs for creatures than doing items for petsites, and more and more I'm feeling like there is less of a reason to do item commissions other than the sheer practice of dawing random objects. ;^;
But I am not making this thread to brag about anything, $5/6 is not much to make, as there are many adoptable designs that sell for $10+ by other artists, I'm just expressing the fun in it and inquiring...
...has anyone on here done anything like this? (I'd like to see!) Do you find it fun? How much have you made with adoptables? Do you get a similar feel for it as when you make pet art?
I'm getting addicted to doing this X3;
Oh and to make it clear yes this is my lineart/base that I drew myself, it's not being used by anyone else~ I thought about selling it as a pet originally but decided against it as pets in this style are not popular and do not sell well. (I probably would have made $5 off of it compared to the ~$37 I've made doing re-colors <_<;; )
