Come on Stanley... I was considering your services at some point, but lines as above really make me think twice if I want to be called dick. Yes, I don't pay much for art too. There are people that are happy to make custom work for prices that you are selling non-exclusive stock art. Keep that in mind. If you're not happy about discussion about your prices then it's fine, say something like "Those are my prices and you're welcomed to not like them, but I won't change them". Anything else you write make you look like non-pro artist even if your work says otherwise. So, just because you have the right to set your prices it doesn't mean we don't have the right to set our own (sometimes very low) budgets... and that doesn't make us dicks!
