No need to apologize. You weren't the one who did the 'shop and I realized a bit after that fact that many younger people wouldn't recognize the source. I don't feel offense at these kinds of things so much as disgust that someone would have so little feeling for a fellow human being, however long ago that person may have lived and died. ):

Some people who want commissions are real poop heads when it comes to prices.

I just want a little feedback, internet! I want to know what works and what doesn't with livestreams or if my prices are too high or too low.

Speak to me, internet. Give me direction.

A parenthesis:

I feel the majority of the message is not to afix labels to yourself. "Be yourself and hope for the best", but at the same time --- everytime I read a "rant" version on the subject. I find myself wanting to disagree with it as much as I can.

Why?

Not because I'm a nice guy (or think I'm one), not because I think the people picture deserve a reward they thinks that should come their way. Because I feel the rants always underscore the bad and offer no real applicable advice, there's nice guys, and those are bad. There's jerks, and those are bad too. You need to be in-between, no extremes! But what's in between? Well, it depends on the person actually and their perception and actual desire as well.

There's no actual solution or "perfect behavior" to adapt, and I feel the rants try to say that there is. In my own experience, detached, sparse contact is seen as a lack of interest. Be more attentive --- seen as clingy. It all depends on the woman. (I could start talking about "creepy" and how it's not a static concept, it's also due to the people involved and their perceptions of each other, but that's besides the point).

So, I read those trying to see what I've done that matches those bad behaviors.

Well, I've done the clingy part of asking "why?" and crap like that --- not being able to deal with the situation and wondering what exactly I had done to make everything stop out of nowhere. Wait, that makes me a nice guy that expects their efforts to pan out! But the rant never addresses my situation --- it's always the extreme "Guy makes advances and keeps pushing while the girl says no" or "Guy hovers around without ever asking her out".

So what's the solution? Walk away, even if it's totally unfair, regardless of any pending questions, the answers don't change anything. But if I don't feel, I'm a robot (Not meant as the forum joke I seem to have "owned" for a while on here --- I mean that in the "Uh, I didn't think you felt anything" kinda-way, which is something more than one woman has said to me).

It's probably the hardest thing I have to deal with --- it's either "too much" or "too little" feelings. And it no longer feels like a natural "be yourself" thing, but more an issue of finding the "right threshold for each person".

Ultimately, it might be because I'm looking for advice in those that I end up frustrated and just want to flip the table on the articles. My outlook would likely be different if I was with someone long-term like, uh, the majority of you guys who commented on this.

You get what you pay for, if you want something specific and detailed, it's going to cost a bit. PFFFFT. Yes Sam, I believe their faces are like that.

Oh but that's my little rant for today.

I...have no idea what that phrase is meant to mean but I have a feeling it's telling me to shut up and stop bitching.

I find that buyers rarely appreciate or understand the sheer amount of work that goes into arts and crafts. Perhaps in a way it's a good thing if the artist makes their craft look so simple, but regardless it seems that some folks are unwilling or uncaring about considering that years of hard work and lots of money have been spent to develop the artist or crafter.

Maybe they need to remember why it is they're commissioning in the first place, which a good majority of the time is because the artist is capable of what they themselves are not.

That said, I've had some really amazing folks buy my work and I would bend over backwards for them any day.

Not surprisingly they are all 'in person' friends, or folks from coscom.
