i was scrolling through the board list looking for a place to make a thread to dump my collection of corona chans that Ive saved and i thought id chime in with my opinion on what it'd take for me to buy or commission some art, maybe some drawfags will find it helpful.
Ive never cared about art in the slightest, Ive never once thought about what techniques were used in the art or how much skill was used to make it or how long it took to paint other than vague shallow shit like "damn that looks awesome" "i actually like this even though i don't know why" and other such thoughts. i suppose this was exacerbated by the fact that i only really use my computer and if i ever saw some image that i liked i could always just save it and use it as a background.
The only times i have ever considered buying art or commissioning art are the times when i have felt that it would be nice to own an original drawing or painting of something i love, something that i would take pleasure in looking at and something that would help me maintain that feeling of love for the subject of the painting.
thats just how i feel as an anon who's never had any art teaching or interest in creating art, i hope this is useful to other art anons.
what i would expect as a buyer and what i would do when looking to commission a piece of art:
>If i were to commission a piece id want it to be original and if i were to pay a couple hundred dollars or more for it, id expect it to be good
>i wouldn't put a time-limit on the commission because id be buying something I'd have on display and i figure the more time an artist has to work on it without stress the better it'll be in the end. its done when its done sort of thing.
>if i was going to pay for someone online to make it I'd use paypal so if they are plain shit or a scammer i could charge-back and tell them to fuckoff.
>i wouldn't be averse to paying upfront for a commission because if they are a scammer i can always charge-back. i would probably even throw in an incentive like if the arts really good and i like it a lot ill drop some morPost too long. Click here to view the full text.
