|All commissions will be evaluated on an individual basis. I will provide you with a few "sample prices", so you have an idea. All of these can vary based on how complicated the subject is. They can range from a $15 sketch to a $100 multiple character piece with a complicated background and detailed clothing.|
The prices listed below are for non-commercial work. If you plan to publish my art, are going to use it for monetary gain, or want to take my signature out, then the prices *do* go up. (Note that I can and will do commercial work, that just requires a contract and all that stuff.)
Bust portraits for $25:
I'll draw your pet (price varies depending on pet):
(I know I only have dogs here, but I can do others)
One character, simple costume, simple background: $35-40 (depending)
One character, complicated costume, simple background: $55-70
Complicated background will, in a case like this one, more than double the price.
More than one character? Add $10 *at least*, per character.
I reserve the right to add cost due to complicated character. Elf ears, wings, horns, tattoos, feathers, fancy hair/clothes, all black characters (this isn't a matter of ethnicity, but a matter of the actual color black) ... all of that takes time. The prices above are base prices assuming there is nothing extra.
Please note that if you want me to make prints, the price will go up according to the quality, quantity and size of the prints and you will also be expected to pay shipping costs (especially outside of the USA). It's a pain in the ass, I know, but it's expensive to mail things in this country.
There are a few things I don't do!
Nudity (Call me a prude if you like. I am, and I'm okay with that. Just because it's naked, doesn't mean it's art.)
Any couples must be clothed (mostly)!! (A little romance is fine ... but romance is more than a naked couple petting one another. That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!)
Overly sexualized characters. Example: A female character with exaggerated boobs who walks around/goes about her daily business in a bikini. *OR* A Male character whose character description would consist of his sexual conquests and can't seem to keep it in his pants. There is a time and place for those kinds of characters, and they do have their merits ... but I just don't like them and don't find them of interest.
You must provide me with links to your reference material (if any). It gets very frustrating having to go through someone's gallery over and over again trying to find the same picture or having to hunt for the right character.
Bottom line is this: I have the right to say "no" to the ones I really don't want to do or ideas I don't find interesting.
I will do a "sketch" for approval before adding color, that will be emailed to you. I will not continue until I hear back.
I will need payment before I begin. If you aren't happy with the sketches (I will do three), you will be refunded.
I will accept money through PayPal only.
I will get to them in a timely fashion. I have a compulsion to draw my own thing sometimes ... it's good practice for your work!
You will be emailed a digital copy of the piece for your own use. (You may *not* crop or shop out my signature!)
Other things you should know:
If you do not tell me about a certain requirement or give me the references needed, I cannot be held responsible for that information. If you neglect to tell me about a huge tattoo on someone's arm and then remember it after I have started, then you may pay me extra for the addition (because I take great care with those) or I can finish it without. If your character only wears a certain kind of hairstyle or color, I need to be told that, too. No information is too much ... except a full recount of their sexual history. I've been given that before and I neither need nor want it.
If you say "use your creativity/imagination", I will within the bounds of the reference I am given. No fair making me do extra work because you didn't provide me with all the relevant information or because you decide to change things when I am halfway through. I need these to be as drama-free as possible.
If the commission needs to be approved by more than one person, I need contact information from everyone involved. I will not get started before I have it. It cuts down on approval time and I can ask the other person if there is anything else they would like me to know.
Style is style. I tend to draw rounder more Western-style figures. And I assume, if you are asking me to draw something, that you are aware of this and want to see said characters(s) in this style. But I cannot be asked to emulate a style that isn't mine. There is also no power on this planet that can magically turn my style into Manga/Anime. The two are highly incompatible. I can work with a character in this style, but it will look like something I have done in the end. So if I draw a character, they will have a place for all their internal organs and their limbs will be more or less the correct proportions ... as will their eyes. Don't be upset if the character comes out looking a bit heavier than they are in a manga or anime style. I'm not fattening them up. I'm representing this character in my own style.
