Work has become a desiccated husk of its former self... so I'd like to remind you that I take commissions! I do not take requests.
Commission pricing for Illustration work, effective August 2017
These are the base rates. Multiple or conjoined characters or complex detail will take longer and will cost more.
$50 - Digitally inked color image with vector shading and a simple background or no background, as seen here!
$100+ - Anything more complicated. Like this, for example!
Content and General Guidelines
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'm practiced with weight gain and pregnancy with mild amounts of weirdness; most of my commissioned work isn't stuff I would have drawn otherwise though it's broadly within the same sphere.
Unless the piece is explicitly agreed to be private, most completed work is submitted to my DA gallery.
I reserve the right to turn down any commission.
Some clients provide their own writing. If you bring your own blurb I'll happily edit it and post it with the piece. I no longer provide creative writing as a service.
The Fine Print: $
I take paypal and will give you my paypal address when we've agreed on a price.
Please don't commission me if you can't pay me quickly. Work doesn't get past thumbnails without money changing hands. If you're a new client I may request payment first. The reason I typically do thumbnails first is some images are more complicated than others - we're not just settling on a pose and a shot composition, we're effectively haggling over labor.
Please don't commission me if you don't have a good idea of what you'd like me to create for you.
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. The more complicated the piece, the longer it will take. If I accept a commission and am paid for it I will complete it, especially if you have a history of paying in a timely fashion!
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 proofs 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 and fewer revisions at later stages of the work.
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.

Once I find a job I will celebrate by doing you a commission. I have wanted to for years you are my favorite dA artist and I'm glad to see you are back
you can be sure that I'll be commissioning you, just need to find some temp work over the christmas period first ^^
I'm hoping for clients sooner than that!
Ooooh I'm so tempted... um, do I need to call ahead to Waistlines and advise them to order a few *tons* of food?
Wooo signs of life!
