it's so hard for me to get down a solid style for eyes
almost every time I draw them I change how I do it

Personally,
if I didn't like the art I wouldn't waste time by commenting on it.

I'm having trouble merging these two separate styles I have. Cute but expressive eyes are also really hard.

I have a similar style, with the cartoony look-Generally there are no rules to art so go crazy lol

Why do people feel the need to tell me they have no money??

I don't mind comments like "Would you consider a trade because I don't have any money currently" or "I love your designs, unfortunately I can't buy them" or even "cool designs, I'd buy one but I'm broke"

But like I have people message me just to say they have no money and idk why?? Your financial situation is really none of my business and I don't know why you're trying to gain by telling me that, I'm not going to give you the design for free

They think you're gonna have pity on them and give them it for free
Back in the day when I made lots of adopts this happened a lot

^Yeah some of these people think they may be a "special case" and you will pity them and give it to them for free. Some just say it because well they are and don't realize its rude, it probably be good to say something if it annoys you that much(cause I know it annoys me, even if they compliment it at the same time but I don't get them often enough to say something)

-How the heck do some artists make their art look so soft yet sharp and vivid at the same time! I still can't get that look and feel my art either looks too soft or too vivid X3

Why does it always seem the adopts I'm the most proud off take the longest to sell? The ones I'm more iffy on always seem to sell right away and I don't get it :/

I've been making so many adopts lately and nobody is even looking, let alone buying :/ im bummed because I need to make money and my custom commissions are hopeless so I was counting on these to work. I'm not sure why NOBODY is interested in dirt cheap adopts on my own line art of a unique species, but alright I guess

Your Adopts are so cute <3 I love the bee I got from you
Have you tried Furry Amino? That's where I've gotten the most success. Make a public chat advertising your Adopts, it feels abnoxious at first but a lot of people do it and a lot of people watch the chats for adopts

I have, after like the 8th I gave up. Nobody even comes in ??? I had one person interested but when I PMed for payment they disappeared. Its the same for chats for my normal commissions too. I've been trying there but apparently the community is not for me  :fox-:P:

Might sound daft but try DeviantART! Just put the adopt into a bunch of adoptable groups
and you'll get people flooding in.
