And it's looking like the files I have are just like... corrupted, or something. It wouldn't save anything but PSD files. No PNG, JPEG, not even SAI. Just PSD. It did that on and off for a few weeks, and this time it didn't go away after I restarted the computer/program, reinstalled, etc. I can't figure it out, the research I did on it ended up pretty inconclusive.
So I downloaded the trial, instead of the cracked version I had, and everything on that worked fine. Problem is, it's a trial. And it says I've only got one day of the trial left. Instead of searching the internet for another cracked version, using pirated materials and putting my computer at risk for viruses, I've decided that I really should just buy the program, like I've said I was going to for the last two years.
I have the money, and it's not all that expensive (45 dollars) but I'm a little bummed because the only money I have was being saved to commission a friend of mine when she had the time to make my order. -sigh-
Anyways. My mom's gonna help my buy the license today, and I'll no longer be without Sai. Which is important to me, as I use it pretty much every day, and it's the best drawing program I've come across.
Oh, also, I think if I can get a little help pricing my work, I can ask my mom to help me set up a PayPal? And once I do that, I can take in commissions and earn some moneyyy and hopefully get enough to commission my friend after all. That'd be the win win win situation I'm looking for x3 Also I really just don't have a clue how to go about selling stuff for USD and with PayPal. I'd probably advertise through here/Tumblr but past saying I've got commissions open and they cost this, what do I do? ahh I feel so inexperienced. And a little useless 8I not a good feeling. But the only way to get over that feeling is to get myself out there!
Any advice? Know of any good pricing tutorials or something? I'd really like to sell for USD, not points, as I don't really use points. However I'm like... really unsure. Don't know what I'm doing, I just know that I wanna do it.
