Art Commissions

Current commissions

Names not included. Just progress details and commission type. Note that these refer to what stage I'm at in the commissions.

In summary, art commissions are when you pay an artist to do art. Prices differ from one person to another, but just to provide context, there are artists (whose work is much, much better than mine) that would charge much higher prices than what you're seeing below. I try to keep mine low since I'm still just a growing artist.


Payment

The payment process can go one of two ways: PayPal, or Amazon. You'd need an account in order to use either service, but they are both free to sign up for.

PayPal is basically a virtual wallet. You connect it to a credit card and/or bank account in order to put money into it. Once we've worked out details and the price, I'll link you to the payment page. Once I receive a confirmation from PayPal that I've received your payment, our deal has been made.

Amazon is an online shop, which you will need a credit card to use. Once we've worked out details and the price, I'll link you to a wishlist with something that is equivalent to the price of the commission, and you can order it by doing this. Once I see that the item has been removed from the wishlist, which confirms that it's been purchased, our deal has been made. As an aside, please do let me know if you can give me tracking info or at least the estimated arrival date.

I've done plenty of commissions with Amazon and found that some people feel safer doing that than giving such information to PayPal, whereas others prefer the simplicity of using PayPal over a shop. So it makes sense to me to offer both. As of right now, I have no plans of adding additional payment methods.

Also, if you are too young to be able to use these kind of services, I'll have to decline.


Process

Once the deal has been made, I don't typically immediately work on the commission, though I do take a moment to gather appropriate information/references into a folder that I can easily get to when I need it. Sometimes art just doesn't come to me, but I do try to work on these when I am feeling motivated. Also, once the deal is made, I'll let you know if I've got other commissions to work on first - I do these in order of when they've been paid for, so please understand.

If you're going for something that is inked, I'll run the sketch by you in order to make sure that everything is fine before I proceed to work on it some more.

As an aside, I prefer to work with previously designed things. So if you've got a character with actual references ready to go, that's what I'm looking for. This is only because the design process takes some time and I'd need to run a lot of stuff by you to make sure it's to your liking. I'm just sparing us both the time/pain. Also, if all you want is fanart, or even my characters, I'm fine with those. Just gotta make sure it's something I'm okay with.

Below are my prices. They are presented in a range, with a lowest price and highest price, based on how much work will go into it. Please keep that in mind when we're discussing details and price. Oh and I'm using US Dollars (USD) for the prices, so… if the pricing isn't already automated for your particular part of the world, there's plenty of currency calculators out there.


Sketch: 5-13 USD

Priced anywhere between 5 to 13 USD based on complexity. Additional characters add 1 USD to the overall price.

These are the cheapest I have to offer. Sometimes, I like to add some kind of single color in there based on the color I'm using for the outline, especially if dark colors are involved. Feel free to request that if you explicitly want it, and also clarify what color you'd want the sketch in if possible. Otherwise I'll just pick whatever feels right.


Color Sketch: 14-17 USD

Priced anywhere between 14 to 17 USD based on complexity. Additional characters add 1 USD to the overall price.

I'm all over the place with these in the examples for this one, but basically… using the same logic from the above image, it involves adding a colored background and multiple shades of the one color. Shading may also be involved. We can work out details.


Flat Color: 18-24 USD

Priced anywhere between 18 to 24 USD based on complexity. Additional characters add 1 USD to the overall price.

If you're looking for something nicer than sketches, these will involve inking (so, smooth black outlines) and color, but nothing beyond that. Good for character models and references. Transparent backgrounds are doable, and even some basic airbrushed kind of background. These tend to be things I decide on the spot. Once again, feel free to specify.


Full Color: 25-35 USD

Priced anywhere between 25 to 35 USD based on complexity. Additional characters add 1 USD to the overall price.

Inked, colored and shaded - the whole package. Basic background (using colors) will be provided. These are usually what people go for when commissioning me.
