I offered to redo a MLP blind bag pony into someone's OC; I put the offer up on Listia. I was going to use the Pinkie Pie mold... it kind of was the only one I had unpacked. (Just moved again.)
It went for 1 credit.
I'm not sure how to feel about this. Should I be insulted? Or should I just say, "Bronies" in disgust and move on?
I've noticed the bronies aren't getting a very good reputation. Not because they're guys who like MLP. But because I went to my Walmart to get a new blind bag pony, and someone had opened up all the bags to find the one they wanted, lifted the one they wanted, and left a mess in the toy department.
Okay, one jerk shouldn't be a reflection.
But when I went to the front and reported the mess, the cashier said, "Bronies," in disgust. Which means in my town at least, this is a problem with bronies.
And I find that disturbing. I'm not sure why I do. I just do.
But yeah. 1 credit.
It's a lot of work to do an OC pony. A *lot* of work. Certainly worth more than 1 credit.
Is this just another reflection of how people seem to think that art is easy and "only takes five minutes"? A reflection of ME as an artist? Maybe the fact that I didn't want to BE an artist is the problem. Cuz I didn't. It's what my parents decided. And they *still* tell me to this day "why try, there's always someone better than you." -_-
I'm glad the guy bid on it at least, even though he wanted me to do a different pony up *and* offer free shipping. So maybe I should be insulted.
I dunno! It's not like I'm often noticed in the world. It's just... 1 credit. From a guy who wanted my hard work for free.
It's not very encouraging, neh?
