Well with the art, on hard days it's always 20/80, because where is a ton of stress that acts like an eraser that kills all of my effort. On regular days it's 40/60 (like yours) but on my own personal days it's all 100. I rarely get those so they are well sought after. I can't thank my supporters enough though, they are my reason of income at times.
Well on a real world basis, money is very important so theres nothing wrong with getting paid for what you do. Me mysely, well i've yet to start college so its not a big deal for me as of now, I just draw 'cause its my passion and what I want to do as my profession. I am passion driven! >: D (If that makes sense XD) Anywho, love the way you drew the character, I especially like the tail and, awesome job on the colors as well, I need to learn to color like that. -w- The representation of money making the pencil draw is a really clever concept too, I thought that was really awesome. Its got alot of symbolism to it.
