Art Commissions

COMMISSION STATUS: Working with a large queue, so new commissions may move slow - thank you for your patience.

In summary, art commissions are when you pay an artist to do art. Prices differ from one person to another, but I'd like to think my prices are fair. If you are too young to pay independently (ie: If parents are a factor in payment) then we cannot do business.

You can contact me on whatever site you saw me advertise commissions, preferably in private, but the most convenient way is through email at moc.liamg|tra.sinulam#moc.liamg|tra.sinulam - it is to be used solely for commission work.



Rules

These are my terms and conditions. It's not a long read, and isn't full of legal lingo, so please do read it - these are the rules you agree to when commissioning me. They are subject to change but I don't foresee any extreme changes.

Payment: Payment includes PayPal, and Amazon wishlist - no other forms of payment (ie: cryptocurrency) accepted. Payment must be made before any work begins. If all you want is a price estimate for later, let me know. Price can be affected by design complexity, how much of the heavy lifting I'll do in the design process (as opposed to working with a design reference), and if a deadline is required. If you want me to add inks, colors or shading to a commission I've done before, you'd just be paying for the added stuff.

Comfort Zone: It's okay to ask if there's any particular thing I'm okay with drawing, including fanart, or involving my own characters. General common sense "Don't be an asshole" rules apply. I don't want my art to push any kind of message I am opposed to. This includes depictions of (and advocacy of) racism, religious, political, or anti-LGBTQ beliefs. You have your right to your opinion but I do not want to be your soapbox. I am pansexual/aromantic so it's safe to say I am also a supporter of the LGBTQ community. In contrast to this list, I am however in favor of supporting diversity and promoting the LGBTQ community, and may be in favor of depicting fictitious religions or allegories so long as they're not too on-the-nose.

Refunds: If you've decided to cancel before a payment is even made, then that's fine. Maybe something came up before you get to the point of sending the payment. Whatever the case, I would prefer you let me know first so that we can work that out. I will keep a fraction of payment based on the work I've put into it so far, to prevent scammers from taking advantage - if the Amazon wishlist was your payment choice, I'll need proof of purchase (ie: confirmation email) so that I know how much to refund, and can be certain the item is indeed still arriving.

Process: I save the needed info and refs and will let you know if I have other commissions I need to work on before getting to yours. You will be informed once I have a sketch, inks, etc. so that changes can be made before moving to the next step. I may be working slow due to any number of factors (large queue, motivation, real life, etc.) so please be patient with me. Artists are not machines.

How You Use It: It's hard to say right now what all is acceptable/unacceptable to do with the art you commissioned. We can talk about whatever you may be curious about. You're free to post it, with credit to me, of course.

Blockchain-related Activities: I do not have an interest in any blockchain-related activities such as NFTs (Non-Fungible Tokens) - if any of my art is being passed around in the NFT world, or some similar service, it is without my approval or consent.


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.

Also feel free to ask if there's a type of commission I can do that isn't covered here. If you want a comic, however, I'm only going to do a page and it'll be limited to 2-3 panels and that will add to the price. Keep in mind that a comic involves drawing multiple things in each panel.

Chibi Sprite: 5+ USD

Priced at a minimum of 5 USD, with higher prices based on complexity. See details below.

Something I'm quite known for are these small sprites on DeviantArt. It'll be 5 USD or higher depending on how complex the design is, with the price being influenced by whether you're basing it off of an existing suit type (ie: A Rider from Kamen Rider Zi-O). Additional option parts, such as attachable armor, can vary in price, so we'll work that out - but it will likely be a dollar at least.

Keep in mind that due to the small simplistic sprite work, this isn't a good place to work out a design - it'd make more sense if you had a design already made that you want to see in this style. Not really a rule, just advice.


Large Sprite: 20+ USD

Priced at a minimum of 15 USD, with higher prices based on complexity. See details below.

Something I'm quite known for are these small sprites on DeviantArt. It'll be 5 USD or higher depending on how complex the design is, with the price being influenced by whether you're basing it off of an existing suit type (ie: A Rider from Kamen Rider Ex-Aid). Additional option parts, such as attachable armor, can vary in price, so we'll work that out - but it will likely be a few dollars at least.


Sketch: 10-15 USD

Priced anywhere between 10 to 15 USD based on complexity. Additional characters add 3 USD to the overall price.

These are the cheapest I have to offer for drawn art. 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 some amount of quick coloring and shading like in a couple of these images - it's simple so it doesn't add much at all to the price.


Lineart: 20-25 USD

Priced anywhere between 20 to 25 USD based on complexity. Additional characters add 5 USD to the overall price.

If you're looking for some nice lineart without colors, this is it. A couple of the examples are more rough than what you'll actually get. I can provide a transparent background version so that you can color it to your liking.


Character Expressions: 25+ USD

Priced at a minimum of 25 USD, with higher prices based on complexity. See details below.

It's kind of like an RPG graphic! These are 500 x 500 in resolution, and are intended to just show a character from the waist up (or higher, if they're larger), so those two things combined mean that it'll be easy to color and shade. I will compile all the images in a .zip/.rar file.

The idea is to make a single pose with alternate facial expressions. Additional poses may add 10 USD based on the complexity of the design. You could get as little as 1 or 2 expressions, or a max of 5, without affecting the price - but each additional expression beyond this will be an additional 1 USD. This was all decided based on general humanoid designs. Characters with less conventional features may require price adjustments, which is something we can discuss.

If you're not entirely sure about what kind of expressions you'd want, here are some suggestions:

  1. A default expression to fit the overall personality of the character
  2. Happy
  3. Angry
  4. Sad
  5. Scared

And if you'd like, a cheek blush is something that can be added to any of them to give a different vibe. Something scared with a blush could also represent embarrassment, for example.

If you'd like to add more expressions or poses to the commission while it is still in progress, you can, based on the prices given above. Even if the commission is over, I can still add expressions based on those prices, but a new pose would have to be treated as a new commission. Please understand.


Flat Color: 30-35 USD

Priced anywhere between 30 to 35 USD based on complexity. Additional characters add 7 USD to the overall price, with complexity bumping it up further.

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: 40-45 USD

Priced anywhere between 40 to 45 USD based on complexity. Additional characters add 7 USD to the overall price, with complexity bumping it up further.

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


Gaia Memory: 15 USD

Priced at 15 USD. See description below.

The transformation items of Kamen Rider W! There are three types involved:

  • Regular Gaia Memory (Silver tip, gold tip or T2 tip): This involves designing an emblem for it, unless you have one ready to go I can apply. The latter applies to Bio00's commission in the third example. These cost 15 USD.
  • Legend Rider Memory: This involves a Rider emblem with a shorthand name. This costs 15 USD.
  • Dopant Memory: Same logic as regular Gaia Memories, but these come in one of the colors provided above. These cost 15 USD.

O Medal: 15-25 USD

Priced anywhere between 15 to 25 USD based on type. See description below.

The transformation items of Kamen Rider OOO! There are three types involved:

  • Transformation Medal: The types of animal medals used by Kamen Rider OOO. These will cost 25 USD if I'm designing it myself, but if you have a design worked out then the price can be lowered accordingly. At no extra cost, you can also get a Cell Medal variant which is just all silver.
  • Legend Rider Medal: A Rider emblem on a generic background. These can be done in the style of the toys (Single color design with metallic blue rim) or in the style of Movie Taisen Megamax (Two color design with gold rim). You get both for 15 USD.

Lockseed: 25-35 USD

Priced anywhere between 25 to 35 USD based on type. See description below.

The transformation items of Kamen Rider Gaim! There are three types involved:

  • Regular Lockseed: A fruit or nut Lockseed. I'm not interested in doing anything that I've already made, sorry. I just want to approach new ideas. These will be priced at 25 USD on its own, or 35 USD if you want both the closed version and open version.
  • Energy Lockseed: A fruit or nut Lockseed for the Genesis Driver. As before, I'm not doing anything I've already made. These will be priced at 25 USD on its own, or 35 USD if you want both the closed version and open version.
  • Legend Rider Lockseed: A normal Lockseed with a Rider head on the cover. These will be priced at 25 USD on its own, or 35 USD if you want both the closed version and open version.

Ghost Eyecon: 10-15 USD

Priced anywhere between 10 to 15 USD based on complexity. See description below.

The transformation items of Kamen Rider Ghost! There are three types but they only need to be separated into two categories:

  • Transformation Eyecon / Heroic Eyecon: Based on Ghost setting Riders and historical figures, respectively. If you just want the Eyecon on its own, that'll be 10 USD. If you also want alternate irises for the designation, the face design, and the finisher graphic, that'll be anything from 13 USD to 15 USD based on how complex it is. It helps if you have a design already made that I can finalize for you.
  • Legend Rider Eyecon: This involves the same prices above. Rider face, emblem, etc.

These graphics were not designed to fit perfectly on the toy's proportions, so it'll be up to you to figure out how to make that work. I can provide you with the individual iris graphics.


Rider Gashat: 15-30 USD

Priced anywhere between 15 to 30 USD based on complexity. See description below.

The transformation items of Kamen Rider Ex-Aid! There are two types:

  • Transformation Gashat: This includes a Gashat for a Rider, a Gashat for armor, or the Legend Gamer Gashats which are based on existing games. These will come out to 30 USD for cover art drawn by me, 15 USD for Legend Gamer stuff where I take an existing game's artwork and adjusted it to fit into a Gashat. This DOES usually involve some editing to get it all to line up, after all.
  • Legend Rider Gashat: A piece of artwork of a Rider on a generic background. This comes out to 25 USD.

NOTE: While I've made belt display graphics for some of my own custom Gashats, that is not something I do for commissions.


Fullbottle: 10-25 USD

Priced anywhere between 10 to 25 USD based on type. See description below.

The transformation items of Kamen Rider Build! These are priced based on what you get:

  • Regular Fullbottle: It's 10 USD for a single Fullbottle, but if you want a pair, for those who want a Best Match, they'll be 17 USD. We can work out the price of additional Fullbottles.
  • Legend Rider Fullbottles: A monochrome character with colored background. These will be going for 20 USD apiece, but for a Best Match, it's 30 USD for the pair. We can work out the price of additional Fullbottles.

RideWatch / MirideWatch: 10-15 USD

Priced anywhere between 10 to 15 USD based on complexity. See description below.

The transformation items of Kamen Rider Zi-O, the RideWatch! For the standard RideWatch, you'll get two images: One which displays the face, and one which displays the year with their emblem.

These are priced at 10 USD if all I'm doing is the default image, but if you want the alternate image which displays a date and emblem, it'll be anywhere from 12-15 USD depending on emblem complexity and whether I'd need to make one myself. A gif of scrolling text (depicting the preferred name and year) is included free of charge.

MirideWatches are available too! These are priced at 10 USD for just the closed MirideWatch. As I have lost the template for the open design, I unfortunately cannot offer that.

AnotherWatches also available! These are priced at 10 USD. While it should go without saying, it's advised that the monster you want is based on something with an existing design, so that I have something to pull inspiration from. If you have any ideas, let me know, otherwise I will figure something out. The minimum for Another Riders is "Add creepy eyes and teeth".

These graphics were not designed to fit perfectly on the toy's proportions, so it'll be up to you to figure out how to make that work.


Progrise Keys: 15-20 USD

Priced anywhere between 15 to 20 USD based on complexity. See description below.

The transformation items of Kamen Rider Zero-One, the Progrise Keys!

These are priced at 15 USD for standard or Humagear Progrise Keys. The standard Progrise Keys come with a free emblem for the Zero-One Driver display, as shown in Example 1 - Humagear keys and Zetsumerise Keys do not have unique emblems to offer, so none will be included.

Legend Rider Progrise Keys are prided at 20 USD due to more detailed art being involved. Since these use the kind of art I'd do for RideWatches, you may get a discount if it involves a character I've already done RideWatch art for. It means I'd just have to draw a torso.

In all cases, there are no open versions of the keys. The template I've made does not account for moving parts. Unique molds (ie: Thouser's key designs) can be requested, but it adds to the price since I'd need to make a new template just for your commission.
