WOOO HOOO!! My FIRST EVER SALE OF AN ARTWORK ON MY DEVIANTART!!
Yesterday I got a surprising email from the D.A. Administrator congratulating me for making a sale of one of my artworks to a real live art loving customer of D.A. This might not be big news for some Deviants as they are long time professional seasoned artist that actually make some or all of their living on selling their art. But.....
For me, this announcement was a milestone! Next week I celebrate my 3rd year of being a Deviant and this sale that happened on May 17, 2013 and was finalized yesterday is MY FIRST EVER DA ARTWORK SALE!
So now you are asking... What was the artwork that was bought. It took me time to find the actual transaction details on the site (not easy to find), but the sale happened May 17th and it was a 24" x 36" print of my CHICAGO BLUEPRINT Photo manipulation. I don't know if it was a print, or canvas or stretched / non-stretched. It would be nice if D.A. would provide more details - even generally where the customer was from (not specifically but at least the country/city).
Here is the Deviation that was bought...
Considering it was such a large print of the image (24x36), I was a bit concerned that the max resolution of the image would be good enough at the calculated 125DPI. For my own real life art website I use a minimum of 200DPI. But I know a lot of printers will use DPIs at or even below 100. Since D.A. calculates the DPI and determines the maximum printable size, I feel comfortable it must be good enough to meet D.A.'s standards.
Anyway.... I am a happy clam about this! And if you are the customer that bought this artwork, thank you very much for being my first ever D.A. Art Sale! If you feel comfortable doing so I would love to know if you were happy with your print that you received from D.A.
