Advice on Free Art Contests UPDATED: Solved

My thought on Free Art, is that it is not really owed to you. If at any point the artist says 'screw it', they kinda have that right, since they are not being paid.

However, this has come into conflict with the situation I have found.
If anyone here is a follower of Penny Inn on FA, they would occationally run contests. In these contests, an artist would offer up some form of art work and Penny Inn would run a contest for people to try to win.

Back in 2010, I entered a contest, in which there would be 3 winners, each recieving a bust shot picture from the offering artist. However, it has been nearing a year now, and there is nothing to show for this contest.

The thing is, I do not know how to procede with this, because as I said, it is free art. However, I don't know if offering through a third party contest changes that or not.


So, I took the time to send a quick message, and as it turns out, they had them saved, just not uploaded.

Thanks goes to everone who posted here, for offering advice. :)

Follow-up on Pricing Advice Post

I am working on compiling the advice given in our General Advice post on Pricing.

In the meantime, here is a list of the artists who requested pricing advice. If any of you have a free moment or two, I'm sure they'd love to hear opinions from more people (or anyone at all, since some haven't gotten replies yet).

Possible Resource for Furry Artists

I felt like I should post this here as A_B has been a huge help to writing out these guides!

I've started doing panels at conventions that talk about how to start out as a furry artist, and how to improve, AND customer/artist relations. Feel free to give 'em a look over, they're for the community! c:

If you have any critique about the information I've got in there, please don't be afraid to email me or comment here about it! I used the best of what I've gotten through my experiences and this community so educate me!
