What category do linearts have to be under again?.....gjlaksdlkfDS GOT ET

anywho, just a generic canine lineart. 100 :points: to download the PSD file!
I was originally going to make it just $1 per download (80 points), until I learned that DA takes 20 points out of every dollar earned, so to compensate for that, I had to increase the price 20 points. hope you understand D:

Let's hope i'm doing all this right glkfdsjd. Stash is a pain in the ass but If I can get the hang of this, I will consider offering point commissions one day since now we can do the whole ~*points-to-cash*~ thing.

ONCE PURCHASED, THE FILE IS YOURS AND YOU CAN USE IT AS MANY TIMES AS YOU'D LIKE! This is NOT a 100 points PER USE thing!

DO's and DONT's

you MAY
:bulletred: use this lineart for adoptables or whatever really
:bulletred: alter/add to this lineart however you wish

you MAY NOT
:bulletred: remove my signature!
:bulletred: re-distribute this template in ANY way (This includes making an ms-paint friendly version for others to use)

please and thanks <:3

This is awesome, I was wondering if you could tell me how you set this up? Like the price, and the preview and how you got the download to be a psd file and all that? I would really appreciate it

thank you!
And when you're uploading a deviation, there should be an option to sell them for points over on the right!

Awesome- and you just upload a preview and the picture and choose which one is which right? (also, if it's not too much to ask, how well did this work out for you?)

Actually, $1 is 80 points, so it's $1.25 ^^;

Please read the description. DA takes 20 points from every dollar earned, so to compensate for that, the price had to be bumped up to 100 points so I can actually get a dollar out of each download. i know that 80 points= a dollar, but not in this case

Sheesh you made like 76 dollars already from the downloads? o.o' It says 76 downloads so I'm guessing you get one dollar for each download. Or maybe I'm wrong, still have NO idea how much this works.

This is a nice quick money maker though, Zan! You should do more of these in the future, maybe even do icon linearts or maybe even small animation icon linearts to get even more quick cash?

Amathaze Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
haha i wish. There's been only 9 paid downloads. the rest are people who thought they'd get it for free using the other download button that's up there uvu but it just gives you the preview image heh.

i'll try some animated icon linearts one day though! Those sound like fun

When did DA add this Download for Points thing? And I guess converting points to cash is cool, though I wouldn't bother with it myself :shrug: It's only a premium membership thing anyway right? I found the submission about how to convert and I guess its PM only from what I read

Anyway, lovely lineart even if I'm not gonna purchase it--I still need my Points for fantasy-canines-- I like the face

Most likely. They'll probably only allow converting for paying members as well. People that can't afford or can't buy premiums--people with parents that won't allow them to--won't like that at all :/

I think it's only for Beta Testers at the moment... It may change, though I doubt it'll be a feature for non-premiums, sadly. ;-;

Yeah this is a very clever form of getting money :P but it only works if you're supercalifragilisticexpialidocious-ly popular sadly.

Not sure if I'll use this feature, but not right now at least lol, seeing it's showering with line arts on dA since Zan posted hers (sorry girl), and yeah hers isn't thaaat costy hey, I've seen people charge 600 points and so for a damn line art. Which is... very clever but a little bit unfair imo.

PS: dA takes off some of the points you earned. It's another way for them to get moolah too. Yay profit.

Vekke Featured By Owner Aug 15, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Dunno man, I don't see what's so wrong with artists trying to make money? 600 points is $6. I'm not sure if the more expensive linearts allow people to make adoptables with it or anything but if so, people are partially profiting off another person's work, or at least planning on it. In any case though, I don't see it as unfair because it's not like, something that people need that they HAVE to pay for no matter what, and if they don't feel like paying, there are a lot of free linearts, or cheaper ones out there haha. I probably wouldn't charge more than 100, or 150 points for a lineart myself since hopefully more than one person would buy it but... eh. The online world kind of slights most of us when it comes to payment for commissions, so I just see things like this as compensation for that, and so it bugs me when people whine about what a scam it is for people to sell things like lineart or adoptables (referring to the OP here, not you Deni!) I mean a lot of us are college students or regular people with jobs, not like... mysterious corporate furry-art CEOs making criminal amounts of money. Maybe it's a little opportunistic, but people know exactly what they're buying so I don't see it as an actual problem.

I'm mostly just glad dA gave an option to get actual money while buyers pay in points (most sites I've been on, which is admittedly not very many, don't allow the exchange of virtual currency for actual money), and it's easily fixed by ignoring the feature and just asking people to pay you in real world currency via Paypal, or by charging 100 pts to the dollar which is also... a lot easier to convert because the multiplication is easier xD But yeah, dA's a company so I just take it for granted that they try to profit lolol

Good luck if you ever do post one! I'm sure it'll go over wonderfully c:

By saying unfair I was aiming at those highly priced templates which don't have a quality that matches the prices. (I've seen a few, I can't remember their usernames though)
Hey I said it's a clever way to make money, not saying don't use it! :o

Haha I wouldn't sell mine for more than that either, lower price more people interested.

agreed! Though even at just 100 points, i've only sold 11 downloads x3
The stats are confusing since a lot of people have tried clicking the other download button that just gives them the same .png image as the preview. I guess they thought i made a mistake and could get away with a free lineart haha!

You should consider making connecting icon linearts. I'm sure they'd sell really well and hopefully wouldn't take too long to make =3
