On May 1, 2021, a furry artist called Furlana did a commission auction that reached over $10,000 USD.
Of note: they were attacked by the Woke Furry crowd in 2017 for drawing this nice piece.
Some very mature commentary from the peanut gallery of the Native piece.
Here’s the start of the auction:
While I would NEVER pay thousands (or more) for a single piece of art, I respect the skill of artists that manage to attract those kinds of sales. Not everyone can do that.
In the end, the future commission went for 7000 euro, or $10,353. That’s INSANE. But also impressive. It’s a shame that popular figures like this get hate from crazy people for no reason, but at the very least it looks like she’ll have no issue paying the bills.
