ESO community is very creative and one of the popular forms of fan-art is character portraits. Who wouldn't want to have a portrait of their beloved character? But art is an expensive thing, it's not something everyone can easily afford. But how about drawing for in-game gold? It's a pretty popular service in many MMORPGs but technically it's gold selling, right? Or not really?

Accordingly, You may not sell, and You may not assist others in selling, Service(s) or in-Game items for real currency, or exchange those items for value outside of the Services.

“ZeniMax prohibits, and does not recognize any purported, transfers, sales, gifts, or trades of Virtual Currency.

You agree not to sell or transfer, or assist others in selling or transferring Virtual Currencies or any amounts thereof. Evidence of any attempt to use, sell or transfer Virtual Currency in any manner that violates these Terms of Service may result in revocation, termination, or cancellation of the Virtual Currency and/or Your use of the Services without refund and/or immediate suspension or termination of Your Account.”
It sounds pretty obvious but at the same time, this practice is very common in MMO communities. Could @ZOS_GinaBruno @ZOS_JessicaFolsom
please elaborate this tricky matter? Am I allowed to draw for people for in-game gold or crowns? Or is it against ToS? Would anyone get hurt for such practice? I would be happy to make my art affordable for people but I definitely don't want to get them into troubles.
