To make things easier (for both of us) I have included a form for anyone wanting their commission done quicker. You don't need to include this but I just figured it would make things easier:
Preferred type of payment:
Which category (from the price lists below. example: character head to toe w background):Character information
Name of character:
Age (approximately is fine):
Skin color/race (elf, drow, human, etc):
Preferred weapons (if applicable):
Any outstanding features(tattoos, scars, etc.):
Preferred pose/link to reference if available (if desired):
Now on to the examples and prices (examples are below each listed price). The below prices are just the general price setting I go from, so the actual price could very a bit, depending on the time and difficulty of the work. Also, please be aware that some of these examples are older works and are not quite up to my current level (in other words my older works stink more then the newer ones) Character: head to toe
Base Price (with little or no background): $70
Base price (with Heavily detailed background): $140Multiple Characters with background
(2 full characters or an animal and a single character)
Base Price: $180 (I added $40 for the additional character from the above base)Character: Waist/thigh
with background appropriate to the picture
-My preferred 'category'-
Base price: $100 Character: Head shot/Bust
Base price: $60I also do Traditional work. Please see My Blog for more info.Accepted forms of payment:
- money orders/bank drafts (with the exception of the green ones bought from official post offices in the US-- the banks in Canada don't accept them)
-checks (with time to clear)
All prices are in US dollars.
All my commissions (with the possible exception of the pencil works) are done through numerous emails. As I work I will send previews so the client knows the progress of the picture, as well as what its going to generally look like.
I begin by doodling out the general pose and color ideas. These are extremely rough and look rather 'scribbled' but it gives the client a beginning idea as to what the finished product will look like. This also gives the client a chance to tell me what he/she wants changed.
For payment by mail (check/money orders): When the first sketch has been 'approved' I will give out payment info (address, etc.). While I wait for payment to arrive I will work and complete the painting, which will finally be sent when the payment has arrived (it usually takes two weeks mailed from the US).
For payment by PayPal: When the first sketch has been 'approved' I will give out Paypal payment info. I will only continue to work on the painting once I have received payment. From then on I will continue to work on the commission until it is completed. When it is, I will send it (via email) as soon as possible.
What you will receive is a large .jpg version. Please be aware that I may or may not upload a smaller watermarked version to my DA gallery. Lately I haven't been uploading commissions but that may change. So please be aware that even though you get a commission done it may not show up in my online galleries.
Paintings can take anywhere from two weeks to a month to complete depending on my schedule/ details involved. So please be patient.Ownership of Requests:
