It's been a slow year for work of all kinds and I'd sooner earn rent than borrow it... so I'd like to remind you that I do take commissions and I'd also like to ask you to open your wallet! :)


Commission pricing for Illustration work, effective November 2014

These are the base rates. Multiple or conjoined characters or complex detail will take longer and will cost more.

$40 - Traditionally inked color image with vector shading and a simple background or no background, as seen here!

$60 - Digitally inked color image with vector shading and a simple background or no background, as seen here!

$90+ - Anything more complicated. Like this, for example!


Content and General Guidelines

:pointr: There's a broad range of subject matter I'm up for drawing. My gallery is a great baseline for what I'm willing to draw, but it's not an absolute. I generally prefer weight gain or pregnancy with mild amounts of weirdness; most of my commissioned work isn't stuff I would have drawn otherwise though it's definitely in the same sphere. :la:

:pointr: I probably won't draw anything that you or I don't own the rights to (or have permission from the rights holder to create).

:pointr: I reserve the right to turn down any commission.
   
:pointr: Unless the piece is explicitly agreed to be private, all completed work is submitted to my DA gallery. "Adult" pieces may be censored or edited for DA depending on content... or may not be submitted at all, depending on the composition. :+fav:


The Fine Print: $

:pointr: I take paypal and will give you my paypal address when we've agreed on a price.

:pointr: Please don't commission me if you can't pay me quickly. Work doesn't go past thumbnails without money changing hands! Over the past few years I've tried a few different methods and have gravitated toward asking for the full amount on thumbnails for new clients and on pencils for established clients.

:pointr: Please don't commission me if you don't have a good idea of what you'd like me to create for you. I'm great at turning a pitch line or a scenario into a finished illustration - if tasked with coming up with that part as well I'm probably going to sit here and go "duhrrrrrrr" for awhile. :dummy:

:pointr: A commission takes a couple of days if my schedule is clear and if you respond quickly to email or DA notes. The work can take up to a couple of weeks if I'm busy. If I accept a commission I will complete it, especially if you have a history of paying in a timely fashion!

:pointr: Deliverables take the form of high resolution and web resolution jpegs or PNGs. A commission starts off as a discussion, evolves to thumbnails, then pencils, then inks and so on until finished. You'll get proof emails at major milestones to make sure we're on the same page. This slows things down a bit but tends to result in satisfied clients. :thumbsup:

:pointr: Individual frames of transformation sequences are treated as single commissions and are handled as such from a payment standpoint. If the sequence is to be posted as a complete composition then the final comp work is done after the sequence has been paid in full. :strong:

:pointr: Some clients provide their own writing; some seem to enjoy my descriptions as much as if not more than my artwork. I find creative writing to be much more of a challenge than drawing so if you want a written vignette to go with the image, fair warning - I charge a bit extra for any writing beyond a client credit and brief comments! :fish:

Hopefully you get out of the funk you got into, the art that is in storage was awesome. Don't be ashamed of what you like. If it made you happy to draw it, and if it makes you happy to look at it, then why not share it. As long as you know that in your heart and soul that it is something you're proud of, why let anyone else prevent you from sharing?

I un-stored all the stuff I still enjoy in any capacity a couple of days ago.  I may make another pass in a couple of weeks but at this point I think I've got all or most of everything I can stand to look at on display again. :thumbsup:
