Race to the bottom: probably not your best bet
Cross-posted from Tumblr.
PSA: If you can't sell your art at minimum wage, you're probably gonna have a hard time selling it for any less, as well. :T Cheaper does not always mean more enticing. In fact, it can be a real turn off to potential buyers who either consciously or subconsciously equate monetary price to intrinsic value and quality. (If you want to price your art cheaply, frame it as a 'sale' off the 'original price'. The reception will generally be much better than simply pricing your work cheaply from the get-go. [See also: the infamous JC Penny fiasco])
If you're selling your art for peanuts and STILL have a hard time making sales, the harsh reality comes down to you possibly needing to do one or both of the following:

I know I have been terribly quiet so one of my goals this year is to post more (fingers crossed).  On that note I thought I would ask that if anyone would be interested in commissions like this? 

(I am also available for Kimet designs if that is your preference :P)
Do you know Astra?  Well she and I have been exchanging comments on DA for years now and through that I have come to know that she is writing a story and she is sending it to print!  If you are interested in learning more about it, or even supporting it/sending out the word check out the link below :p

I am an illustrator currently employed at a design firm creating props and wall murals usually geared towards children (often but not always). I have an interest in children's illustration, comic art, game art and animation.

I attended school at the Alberta College of Art and Design where I majored in Character Design and Illustration as well as a year at VFS where I specialized in Classical (hand drawn) animation.

Hey there!  I just stumbled upon your fantasy artwork.  It's wonderful to meet another artist who loves mythology, fairy tales, and nature as much as I do.  Keep it up on the magical artwork! =D :star:
