Edit: ;__; Thanks so much, everyone. The slots are all filled, so commissions are closed for now.
I've decided to start up commissions!
If you read the previous journal you'd know I'm a little worried about the state of my drawing tablet, and I'm trying to save up money for an Intuos4 so I can keep making art and comics
. However, I've also been getting a bunch of requests for commissions via notes and I feel bad about constantly saying no XD.Please read the commission info and policies below.
(finished)How to Commission:
Send me a note with the title "Commission" and a description of the commission you want in the subject (commissions limited to the types listed below). Please include your e-mail address and links to any previously existing artwork of your characters (sketches, prior commissions, etc). These will help me greatly as references and go a long way toward ensuring that the final product is closer to what you want.Commission Info:
Sketched Character: $8 plus $4 for each additional character (maximum of 3).
Inked Character: $10 plus 5$ for each additional character (maximum of 3).
Color Character: $15 plus 7$ for each additional character (maximum of 3).
Complex Drawing: $30+ depending on complexity
Sketched Character - Full character(s), grayscale line art with no background and simple shading if requested. 11x17 inches, standing pose (please provide a description of the pose you want), separate files for each character.
Inked Character - Full character(s), smooth inked line art with no background and simple shading if requested. 11x17 inches, standing pose (please provide a description of the pose you want), separate files for each character.
Portrait: Single character from shoulders up. Full-color with choice of cartoon-style shading or soft-shading. 8x10 inches.
Color Character - Full character(s), colored with cartoon-style shading or soft-shading (by request), and a simple background. 11x17 inches, standing pose (please provide a description of the pose you want), separate files for each character.
Complex Drawing - Commissioner's choice (detailed description needed) :]. Can include, at most, five characters in a full-color scene (or comic page) with a detailed background.Policies:
Because of time constraints, I'll only be able to take five commissions at a time and work on them in the order received.
Original characters only. I'd feel bad about making money off of existing, copyrighted characters (and I don't know how legal it is
). However, if your original character is meant to be part of an existing universe (Naruto, Avatar, etc), I don't see a problem with that.
No hentai/overtly-sexual themes -- partial nudity is fine as long as it's artistic or intrinsic to the character (e.g. Angora
from The Meek) XD.
Please no deadlines XD. If you need an image done by a specific date, please do not commission it. I can only work on commissions in the order I receive them, and some may take longer than others.
I can only accept Credit/Debit Card or PayPal payments. When you request a commission, I'll need your e-mail address so I can send a PayPal invoice to you -- which looks like this:Please, DO NOT send me any payment until I let you know that I'm ready to start on your commission.
I won't start on commissions until I receive payment, but I also won't ask for payment until I'm ready to start XD. Unfortunately, this has to be done via the honor system -- but you have my personal guarantee that your commission will be done :]What You'll Receive:
When I'm done with the commission, I'll send you the full image at 300 dpi in JPEG format via e-mail. Some images may be quite large in file size, so I might need to provide a link to where you can download it. If you're currently commissioning an image it might be a good idea to add firstname.lastname@example.org to your contacts, so your images don't end up in the Spam folder for strange reasons.
You'll own the full copyright to your commission and can reproduce it, alter it, or print it if you want
If you have any questions, feel free to ask in the comments
