Inkbunny art community launches; offers prints, downloads
At Inkbunny we believe two revolutionary things about selling art; that people want to buy your work even if they can get it for free, and that you should not worry too much about piracy of your work.
Inkbunny hopes to fund itself through sales fees – 20% of profits – and AlertPay referrals. Print base prices range from US$2.10 for 5.5"x8.5" to $18.00 for 24"x36" (plus $6+ shipping). The payout minimum is $10.
Users can also donate to artists – or the site itself – with a 5% fee to cover transaction costs. Donations were very popular in the beta.
Submissions can include multiple files to display multi-page works or sketches. Tag/rating-based filtering is provided. Photos are not permitted, unless they form "an essential component" of a work and avoid depicting real people or animals, blood, gore and illegalities.
Stories (in .doc, .txt and .rtf format) can be previewed or shown in full on-site; the displayed text is searchable. Streams can also be promoted.
