Happy CodeDedicated Code MonkeyZen Code Monkey

If you visited the requests page recently, you may have noticed an increase in cost of items you can purchase. This is due to an increase in pay for our artists and staff. Artists were previously paid only $3 USD for their Item art. It can take hours for a proper piece of work to come into play and after many years we have been able to increase this to now $7 USD per Item produced. All other artwork has increased in price as well; including for example pets going from $20 USD to the artist to $30 USD. The prices reflect artist cost, paypal fees, and about $2 USD to the site.

Our summary page is still being fine tuned, but soon you will be able to see all expenses in detail. We will also be including a list of how much each team member can earn based on their work once the page is finished. Most still prefer IceCash; however, USD is now an option for everyone. This is all in a huge part thanks to everyone here and your support!

After reading this you may be wondering about a programmer and updates on alpha. We have someone who is interested in working for us to help get alpha in action; however, we are still working out some details. As we have more news to share, we'll keep you all posted.

That's an amazing update price for the artist! Their work are always awsome they deserve it!

Since all the price have change, what is the new price for a recolor? It's not in the change up there.

I'm really happy to know you have found someone for the Alpha!! that's great news!

@Mongolou

There are two new prices for item recolours based on what kind of work needs to be done on them! They can be seen on the funding page for both single Items and Item Bundles in the same place the recolour details have always been :)

Recolours that are only colour changes which require very little to no editing otherwise are $1.50 USD. Examples of this include the Tech Bow ties (which are only colour changes) or the Snow Jar Ice Cubes (which are only colour changes, plus the resizing of an existing item).



Recolours that require further edits than that (usually in the form of new lineart) are now $5.00 USD. Examples of this include (but aren't limited to) things like Trading Cards, certain Ice Cubes, certain Duckies and item sets like the Raindrop Cakes.





Essentially, anything that is working off a "base" but requires changes beyond simply changing colours or reusing existing assets. This does not include items whose base is a very minor part of the artwork, such as the small wooden base on our Figurine items - something like that would be treated as a normal item request instead of a recolour.

If there is ever any need for clarification on this when making an item request, you are always free to ask as well and we would be happy to help :)

Just for clarification, so if I wanted to fund new ducky colors, it would only be 1.50 a color? or would it be the 5.00?

@oOKiraraOo

It depends on the details you'd like on the Ducky!

Simple Duckies like the basic colour Duckies or the Shamrock Ducky will be $1.50:



while more detailed or complicated Duckies like the Woodland Ducky, Alebrije Ducky or Strawberry Ducky would be $5.00:

I have not been this excited about an IcePets news post in literal years. It's taken WAY too long, but I'm just thankful this change was finally implemented.
