I realize most of you aren't serious, (I would hope) but I don't even know what the issue is anymore. Other than the fact that I'm new to the hobby.

It's that you expressed that you were disappointed about passing on a print, solely because you could have flipped it for profit, not because you actually liked the art/artist.

You misunderstand. Actually, you're right in a certain sense: I'm not absolutely in love with either this artist or this piece, I wanted the print because I'm a huge fan of the film. I wanted the print, but I passed for a couple different reasons:I can't just spend all of my money on art, and, as I said, the image itself wasn't doing a whole lot for me, though I did like it quite a bit.

I guess I thought it was natural to be disappointed that the print went up in value so quickly and that I didn't get one even though I had the chance to. Yes, for that price I likely would have sold it, but I feel as though that's kinda beside the point. I'm not mad solely because I missed a chance to make a few bucks.

Can I take a moment to say that I've not yet sold any print that I've bought, nor that I got into the hobby to do so? If a print I buy goes up in price to a point that I personally would not have paid for it, is it not natural to consider selling for said price? If so, then I guess there's something wrong with me.
