Yea it is a shame. And nah... I don't really like commissioning on gaia. I hate trying to sift through the millions of threads and fight for slots and things like that. I'll probably just move onto RL commissions.
Aww, shame! You can get some good deals by buying items to convert to gold for commissions ^^ but you're right there are a lot of threads, I wish Gaia would make a preview of artshop so you can see styles without going in. If you're happier with RL comm then more power to ya, you'll get better motivation from artists when it's RL money being waved in front of them!


Not really, the MP is no longer stable that I can guess what's going to happen with items.
And the RIGs and such its costing me $10 per 1 MIL gold, and considering the way that artists are getting that its hard to find cheap art any more, its costing me 20-30$ to commission artists on gaia, half of which never complete the art, so I might as well on DA instead. I may change my mind but i havent had any real luck with shops in a while.

Hmmm... maybe it kind of goes both ways I suppose, mostly it's luck though whether you get a good deal in RL or Gaia.

I hope you get good art!

Hey Blurry, you're welcome ^ ^ Yea it is a shame, I think that's true and perhaps the newer artists just arent interested in them. I have to remember sometimes I've been on here for 6 years.

Yeah, I guess people have a lot of different reasons for not entering.
I mostly don't enter since I've been put off by a lot of the scam art contests that I've entered =.=

I think a lot of the higher end artists don't enter since most of them can get the same gold guaranteed from auctions or shops.

LOL, its the same on gaia, they generally are full or on haitus it seems.
But its alright, I find i have better luck with finding DA open slots.
I have opened a request thread for my avis though, so I'm trying that.

LOL, its alright. I'll RL commission her another time.
I'm just waiting for her slots to free up x3
Wow, I totally forgot about this. Thanks so much! I'm sorry you didn't get as much art as you would have liked. The forums seem so slow these days.
