When you commission artwork, the finished artwork belongs to you. This means that at the end of the project the original artwork is mailed to you to do with as you please. I do keep digital copies of all colored images for my portfolio.
Pieces are scanned and colored with Ulead Photoimpact at graphic developer resolution (300dpi) unless you request otherwise. Please keep in mind though that the higher the resolution the image is colored at, the longer the project will take, and thus the more time you will have to pay for.
If you've read the info above and decided that you might like to commission some artwork, email me at the above address
Include the following information to help me get an idea of what would be required to complete the piece: The characters name, screenshots, character details (hair color, eye color, etc.), a description of exactly what you want (as specific as you can be), and anything else you think I should know to make the image look like what you're imagining.
After reading over the description, I'll email you and we'll talk about your commission further. When we're in agreement on what you're looking for, and the cost of the work, I will send you a Money Request via PayPal. When this Money Request is payed work will begin on your commissions as soon as is possible. Because of the number of commission requests I recieve each month, please be aware that the usual waiting period before work commences is one to two weeks.
When the rough sketch is complete, it will be emailed to you for your approval. If changes need to be made, this is the time to request them. Major changes could, but will not necessarily lead to further billable hours. . If you approve of the sketch, I will ink and color it immediately.
When the colored image is complete, I will email it to you. If color changes need to be made, simply say so. Color changes are easy and can be made at little cost to you. If you like the image let me know that you consider the project done, and your original artwork will be mailed to you as soon as possible. Images are usually shipped between 1 and 2 weeks after the work iscompleted. The digital image is provided immediately upon finish.
I typically charge $30/hour with a 1 hour minimum. Simple avatar images usually take between 1 and 2 hours and more complex character sketches between 2 and 5 hours. keep in mind that you will be provided with the black and white original with additional money for shipping. Each peice comes signed and dated for your convenience.
Header bar graphics, button graphics, backgrounds and other web graphics are a 3 hour minimum. Keep in mind that getting multiple web graphics at once is still a 3 hour minimum. Logos are a $100 minimum charge..
Please keep in mind that the original image is penciled, inked, then colored with Ulead Photoimpact. This means that a colored version of your work ONLY exists in a digital format. The Original you receive is the black and white, pen and ink version. No colors, no names, just pen and ink on vellum quality acid free board (if its a character sketch or similarly sized art project) or standard printing paper (if it's a sig icon). For web graphics, they will exist entirely in the digital media format. I draw only rough sketches of these for inspiration.
Shipping (if you wish to have the black and white original) Is $10 in the United States only. We do not currently do international shipping
Invoices can be provided upon request.
Thank you for your consideration!
