For those interested in commissioning artwork from me, my commission information is below. Please read carefully and if there is any question or if you would like to pitch an idea and get an estimate (whether or not I am closed for commissions), feel free to contact me (specifics are outlined below as well).
Commission availability varies based on many factors, but to determine what each status means, the following key can be referenced:
|Open||Open for business and looking to review and accept project proposals.|
|Soft-Open||Open for business, but availability may be limited to lighter project proposals, such as those requesting sketches, pin-up artwork, simple illustrations, and short sequences.|
|On Hiatus||All pending and in-progress work, as well as correspondence to proposals, are temporarily halted until work is ready to resume.|
|Soft-Closed||Availability is highly limited. Though not officially closed, proposals may still be reviewed anyway--however, response time will be late and communication sparse. If any commissions are accepted, they may be done at random and in no particular order.|
|Closed||Conditions are so that business must be closed temporarily. Proposals will not be reviewed during this time and a response will most likely be a refusal. Any in-progress work may be done during this time however.|
Working resolution is, by default, set at 9″ X 12″ at 150 dpi (1350 x 1800 px), landscape or portrait orientation, and the file is normally saved to 75% (1013 x 1351 px) or 50% (675 x 900 px) of that size to tighten the detail. But these values can change depending on the piece itself or by wish of the client. If wallpaper size is desired, please specify the wallpaper dimensions, and aspect ratio if need be. File format is usually .jpeg, but can also be adjusted to the client’s preference.
|Illustrations/Character Sheets/Sequences||Comic Pages||2-D Animation|
|Sketch||$5-$15||Per page||$1-$5||Per panel||$0.25-$5||Per frame, may include repeating frames|
|Black & White||$20-$30||Per page||$5-$15||Per panel||$1-$25||Per frame, may include repeating frames|
|Full Color||$35-$50+||Per page; $100 max||$10-$30||Per panel||$5-$50||Per frame, may include repeating frames|
Multi-page comics (default resolution) truncate at $50 max per page for B&W and $100 max per page for color. Meaning, if the total per-panel price exceeds these maximums for a page, then price of that page will be set to the according value.
Animation frame prices are highly dependent on amount of detail, complexity of design and animation, and overall frame size. By default, animations are in 320x240 pixels in .gif format (at least for purely black and white animations). If the animation requires finer details and better video quality, such as the addition of anti-aliased pixels, gradient coloring, etc., then the file format, file size, and overall price will reflect that.
Prices vary based on complexity and detail. Prices are also negotiable if need be. If no specifics are given to the complexity, the prices will usually start in the middle. Complexity will be defined by how many characters are illustrated, whether or not there is a background, the type or style of coloring/painting, etc. (Please review examples for a better idea).
Prices are subject to change and are usually dependent on the individual pieces/projects themselves. These prices are only for building artwork from scratch, but I can also offer specialty services, like: coloring already drawn line art, creating line art for sketches, etc. The prices for these services are on an individual work basis, so please contact me if interested.
Adding text is optional and comes at no extra charge. If text is desired, please give specifics on form, fashion, and placement.
The following are examples of what can be expected with each price point:
Again, prices are negotiable if need be, but take these examples as a general guide.
Even though the relationship between client and artist is usually understood, sometimes there are gray areas that may not be clear, and so discussions and negotiations must be made. To further avoid complications, the client and I (the artist) must both agree to these terms in order to have a successful transaction:
If there is any need of clarification, please let me know.
For small commissions, payments will be accepted when the product is finished, unless otherwise stated, but the client may choose to pay any time between the start and end of production process. For large commissions, a contract payment of half before production and half after production will be the ideal payment option. Small commissions usually include, sketches, pin-ups, single illustrations; whereas large commissions would be multi-paged comics/sequences and highly detailed illustrations, and animations. If you are not sure if the commission is large or small, feel free to ask after pitching your idea. Thumbnails will be sent to the client when production is finished and, if possible, updates will be given to the client as progress reaches certain checkpoints. Final product will be sent to the client after payment is made.
Preferred Payment method is through Paypal where an invoice will be sent from the artist to the client before a payment is made.
If there is anything I will not do that is not already listed here, I will specify.
I understand descriptions are important, so any detailed information or reference images are welcome. Client can define how much creative reign will be allowed.
You can contact me through my e-mail:
Once a commission is confirmed, I will exchange any extra information with the client. All contact information and details on the commission will be left private unless desired to be publicized by the client.
