Yeah. You're probably right... Oh well.
edit- Fixed my main page. And I can start from scratch for that guy, Revival. Alls you need to do is tell me what emotion, clothes, hair, tatoos or anything like that. OR, I could do a quick edit of the Ralph I DO have. And we'll see. But like I said in the main page, it's not a priority if it's just an edit.
If you want to bust into commissions, I definitely recommend furries.
Lots and lots
of furries. (And fetish art, in all seriousness these are both areas people seem to be unusually chill with shucking out money for!)

I will say, in defense of zephyrskye wanting to be compensated, that there is nothing wrong with it, even if he is "just" making edits. Personally, with work like this, minor edits (such as a hair swap or something) might be better off as a free service, whereas a larger undertaking (such as a whole emotion set or several portraits) constitutes a price tag.
Perhaps make some official pricing structure for the most common kinds of requests, as well as a method of receiving payment?
That said, not everyone wants to spend money when most of us are making games for free... But it can be done. Don't expect any sort of steady income from this, though.
You're right! There is nothing wrong with wanting to be compensated for art, it's something that takes a lot of time and effort even for "just' edits. My point being that this forum is full of people willing to do the work for free, on top of the fact that it's technically illegal to be profiting off of edits to someone else's work. No, there is incredibly little chance (as in pretty much none) of there ACTUALLY being legal repercussions, but I still consider it a question of artistic ethics!
Plus, if you got the talent, there is almost always someone willing to pay for a commission of their OC, fursona, or spider-based-mpreg inflation pictures. That is much more likely to be a profitable venture!
