I saw an art competition in this site just recently, and they used deviantart points as gifts
Now, I'm not saying I'm about to open my own competition, especially since I just recently joined. But it does remind me to ask whether or not using real money to commission art in this site is allowed?
Yes! That's completely okay! There's about 5 or 6 threads about real cash commissions on the first page of the art subforum right now!
Nice! Thank you for the swift reply!
