Yeah, this journal is gonna be huge since most of you (I mean deviantart members) don't pay quite much attention on my Art-Status, economical problems in the whole world ect.
First off I'm gonna start with the fact that people keeps messaging me if I could do PCms and ATs even though I CLEARLY MENTIONED my status IN MY OLD PC PRICES.
If you think that I'm a robot that doesn't have other arts to finish in the first place, and as if I don't have the real life problems, then go and scam someone esle. I'm just sick 'n' tired of such people. I can barely work on other drawing due to a virus in laptop and in CD disk where I keep most of my drawing (no matter finished or unfinished), small ammount of memory on laptop, exams and check-out of the diploma works by director of our lyceum. You should understand even the fact that after fiew weeks I have to find some place where I'll work as the actual worker, not as practicant.
You should propably understand that I have also huge to do list that I need to finish before I'll start making new drawing, not to mention the comic pages that I and Kate are doing about 1 page per month.
Now it goes to those who keeps whining as if I sell my designs, fonts, bases and doing commissions for expensive prices. Well I'm sorry but it's not my fault that the whole world have an infliation.
Also, if you are such slowpokes, and it was mentioned on DeviantArt for a lot of times, that 1$ is equal 100
. So before being a total piece of shit complaining that the font cost 80
and designs 30-150
, max price for fully detailed drawing was 250 back at 2014, use your math skills and count in dollars how much do I get in total, especially when D.A. takes about 10% of points to the developing of the web-site (by using Commissions vidget).
So please stop being scums and stop complainging about that, I'm actually earning point less that minimal ammount of money for regular worker in Russia (and it's about 136$ according to the fact of how much dollar cost in Russia right now - about 64 rubbles for 1$). That's another reason why I closed commissions - because of low prices according to the current situation of money in the country and in the world.
Also I've wanted to say fiew words about MONEY commissions. Even though PCms were closed I was open for money commissions via Web-Money and even here you started complaining.
Lemme tell you that, there are a lot of reasong why I don't and I cannot have PayPal account to use for making commissions:
~Reason #1 - Card problems - It may sounds for you funny, but really what's the point on making the card right now, when my old lyceum card will be in no use within fiew weeks. And if I did the card then I'd have the money problems, since I'm still not working as the actual worker (not even earnin the minimal ammount of money). I mean I do not have money even for some instruments for me to finish the diploma work, and here - the money card. What's the point on making empty card and having huge money looses time by time?
~Reason #2 - Accidents with refunds and prices - Most of PayPal users had the accident when someone commissioned them, they got the payment and once they finished the commission they got a mail with request of refund. And as far as I know there were at least 5 mebers who got such message of refund. That's one of those reasons. Another one is the prices for commissions. Yeah, it may sounds even more weird, but yeah - even for a drawing which I'd do at least for 3$ no one would buy it by complaining on how it's expensive for them.
~Reason #3 - Hackers - Another reason is the hackers that became quite active lately in the middle of 2014. All of us knows prefectly that day by day hackers become more progressive when admins of those money-keeping-websites become more lazier day by day and don't care about their members and victims. And PayPal (as I've heard) became quite popular because of those hackings.
~Reason #4 - Types of cards - Yeah, it's actually the same as the #1 and #3 but it's mostly about the type of cards. As I've read on Wikipedia, PayPal accepts such cards like MasterCard, AmericanExpress, ect. But the point is that one of those cards is quite expensive in territory of Russia and not that much russians use it for shopping because of the problems. I cannot say if anything of the nest following text is true, but I've heared from various people that their card were hacked not by someone else, but from the company itself. By that I mean that the company took way much money from their clients than it should. Even there were accident when someone was going to use their cards to get money in physical form and when they were doing that, about 25% of money were stolen from the card and sent to the company without any notice.
The reason why I made Web-Money acount is because it's fully free to create and doesn't requires any payment, ect, not to mention that it's perfect to get payment for stuff from Russia, and also other countries of the world. But the main problem is "the pockets". By that I mean that if I was earning money, for example, from someone in Norway, then I have to make separacte "pocket" because of different type of money, and it goes to almost each valute of the world (Rus rubbles - russian "pocket", USD dollars - usd "pocket", ect).
But you know, if you wanna commission then you have to accept all those tems because there is no way I can make PayPal, lower prices ect.
It's the fact of living. If you think that I just make commissions and earn points just for fun, then you're wrong. By earning point I might commission someone whoom I might help (since they can change points into the web-money), and by earning money I'll at least will manage to earn money for living (especially taking the fact that my dad cannot work forever all alone, and my mom and grandmom are in need of medicine or money only just for visits at doctors).
And now about the prices and in point and in money - I still haven't got any suggestions from you about the prices. Once I'll get enough suggestions I'll try to make prices as cheap/normal as I can. So now PCms are still closed untill further notice.
