Honestly, I'd never heard about ArtFlipping till I read this article about artist Adam Huges having his final pieces sold on e=bay for way more than originally asked. As a result he turned to simply selling his works on e-bay completely, instead of at conventions.

I've seen commission people had bought from artists sold on e-bay in the past, but they've usually had them for a few years and are moving etc.

As an artist I feel somewhat put-off by this practice, but as a realist I can completely see why people do it. In the end the artists is getting shived, sure, but not out of spite or misconduct, just simple economics.

So my question to people today. Have you ever bough, sold or seen an ArtFlip on e-bay or elsewhere? (A commissioned piece being re-sold).
MSTG Pony OC by Kraden
MSTG Pony OC
I'm not actually sure if this character has a name. Commission from PonyCon, working my ink and colour style a little more. This one was actually super quick to get down so I'll probably be doing more like this soon.

Little Miss Rarity by Kraden
Little Miss Rarity
A Commission of 'Little Miss Rarity'.

LMR is an off-center Sadomasochistic version of the Fashionista along the same vein of Cupcakes...apparently.
What? I do my research for commissions!


I kind of got carried away with this one actually. It was supposed to be an Ink, but once I started laying down the inks I added the flats and now it's 2am and a full digital piece.
Hmmm... I may have a problem.

It's marked as 'mature' since it's both a little saucy and a little creepy. But hey, that's the content material. *shrugs*
I'm kind of digging thin line works too. They take more effort but the results are super nice compared to my usual bombastic toon-boom.


Btw.

Does anyone know what the heart, black line things on her chest are supposed to be? Couldn't really find out that little tid-bit on short notice.

Shadowfire Commission by Kraden
Shadowfire Commission
Commission for Shadowfire of his Pone by the same name.

Good simple colours and shading with some nice clean linework. I'm looking to be able to do at least 3-4 of these a day next year at high-production.
