I think they want me to collect many characters in one set, but I don’t want selling them all for 5$

Think of it this way. If people see that they can get many characters for $5, more people will find it more worth it to buy and you’ll get more sales. If you only have 2 or 3 characters for $5, some people may not find that worth it and will look elsewhere. So in the end, doing more work and having a low price can make you a lot more money than having less work for the same price.

Though this isn’t always the case, if you have a lot of content in the item and you really show the quality, then the price of your item can go up.

Just replace bike related things with whatever’s relevant. https://youtu.be/eaIvk1cSyG8?t=20s

Hello, world!

Recently I’ve been looking into new ways I could show my work, to help my items and general portfolio gain a bit more exposure. Currently I use deviantART to show pretty much everything I do, whether it’s for fun, professional or items here on the marketplace, I use Facebook to try and connect with people who enjoy my work (which hasn’t really been successful in the slightest), and then Behance to show only the work I do professionally. What other places would you recommend?

Also, many a time I’ve thought about creating my own personal website, I have about 98 bazillion designs and have yet to find one I like, but that’s besides the point. Does having a personal website make an increase in anything? Is it really worth it to go through the trouble? If you have your own website, what are your experiences with it?

Personally, I don’t rely on freelance work or item sales, so that wouldn’t be my main focus. If I was to have a website it would just be to show my work in a different way. However, my problem is that people can already see my work in the places I mentioned above, so there would need to be a different reason for people to come to my website, it would need to offer something that people couldn’t get anywhere else that my work is shown.

Anyway, the main questions here are: What sort of websites do you show your work on? What are the benefits of having a personal website? What are your experiences with alternative websites and personal ones?

I don’t know anything about specifics, but for me personally I prefer Mac when designing, though if you need power for things like 3D work or gaming then I would say PC is the way to go.

For me, Mac is way better for organization, and programs like Photoshop just seem to work better on Mac for some reason. For example, on PC, if you right click to select a layer which is within a group in a document with many groups, it’ll be nearly impossible to find that one layer unless you named it properly. However, on Mac, the layer you right clicked on will be positioned directly beside your cursor. (If that all makes sense).

I use a Mac at home, but am forced to use PC at work, so I notice a lot of little things that I could have done better or easier with a Mac.

What was the rejection message? Sometimes files aren’t set up properly, image sizes are too large, etc.

Every one of my items has been rejected at least once before I made changes which got them accepted. Maybe the way you’re showing the item off isn’t “creative enough”, make something fancy that stands out from everyone else. Even if the item is just a few characters with separate body parts (which is well done btw), make it look like it’s the greatest character pack ever created, that’s not false advertising, that’s marketing. Just don’t tell people that there are hundreds of possibilities with this specific one because there really isn’t.

Sometimes I wonder how some items were accepted, but I’m sure that if you put time into creating something truly outstanding, then your chances of being accepted will increase A LOT.

It would be better if we could see the logos that were rejected, that way we could give some proper feedback.

Just make sure it follows the marketplace submission rules. The rules and guidelines have changed a few times in the last few years, so if your deleted item was a few years old then you may need to make a few changes.
