What happened to most of your sets being free? I was really looking forward to this set, but I certainly don't have 10 dollars to spare for a single Set.
Too big a fan of your work to resist this, especially a set with Asari, buying it. Really hope some day you do a set with a Asari and a Horse..heh, or maybe a Elcor, they are likely hung equivalently.
@AnonymousI'm not in a place where I can afford spending money on porn right now, but Vaesark's been putting out quality content for free for years. Since he started doing pay sets, there have been two free and two paid, I think it's a little early to say that most won't be free.And honestly, even if they weren't, dude's gotta eat yo.
He has been eating for years without charging. If he wants to charge, that's fine by me, but be direct about it. It may be a bit early, but it's better not to wait until it's too late to figure out what the deal is. I have had this blog bookmarked for over 4 years now, it is one of only 2 3dx blogs i have bookmarked, it kinda hits me where it hurts to see another long awaited Asari set behind a paywall.
Simply put: given my current situation I can't afford to spend 20-50 hours making a set if I don't make a minimum profit from it. If the ones that I sell make enough I will also continue to make free ones, if they don't, then they will all be behind a paywall, if they get riped and shared around and I don't make enough then I'll have to stop doing them altogether and focus on my "real" job.
Good luck to you Vaesark, you have given us so much over the years for free that when you are in financial straits it would be petty for us not to help you out. I at least shall get every Set you make, be it paid or free. After all, the average person spends about 10$ on junk food or soda over the course of two weeks, this is a eminently more worthy purpose for that sum.
To give another perspective on the payment issue - I just came from Mongo's site after fully intending to buy both your sets, assuming they were the normal $5 price, but have bought neither. Having given them a quick look in the set section, they just don't appear to have enough content to justify the $10 price tag. I'd have happily bought them at $5, but $10 is just a bit too much. Especially when compared to some of the other artists on the site, some of whom have sets with double or even quadruple the amount of pictures for half the price.I do hope it works out for you in the long run, but I'm reluctant to pay that much given the competition and can understand how others would be as well.
If I may inquire Mr. L.F., have you heard of Quality versus Quantity? Can you name another artist who has a set of Asari images this varied and of this artistic level?
Of Asari in particular? No. That's being very pedantic though. And while you can argue quality over quantity, supply and demand along with competition are just as much a factor in sales. I think $10 is too high for what he's offering considering the competition. You obviously don't. I'm not sure what the general consensus of Vaesark's fans/market is going to be, and I wish no ill will towards him and that the set does net him a profit. It just won't from me. And apparently a few others at the least.
"Competition"? What? Since when has making 3d porn (and art in general) been a contest?
Do you plan on making more Asari sets in the future? Because I'll buy that yo.The price is fine with me, I mean this persons been putting out free quality content for years and its only £6.
Have you considered doing work for people for a commission? That way you can still share them all publicly and make money. The one downside is that for the specific ones that you commission, you won't be able to do what you want, though you could still continue doing what you want for non commissioned work.
Anon, "Do you plan on making more Asari sets in the future?"Probably yes, but not so soon after the last one.About commissions... not interested in doing more for now. loosing freedom over what I create is just one of the downsides :/
Yeah, that's fine. I'm going to order one or both sets in a few days.Respect, V.Keep it up.

Well that said more sets concluding with a titanic, exaggerated gooey mess for our fine young things to be coated in would be nice, too!
To bring up commissions once more, maybe you could offer commissions but only take ones that you would enjoy making? I don't know if that would really work out because I don't know if you would often end up in situations where you don't like any of the ideas that would be commissioned.I'm just thinking of ways you can make money and everyone can be happy, but if that wouldn't work then I understand. Do what you have to do!
