So you've decided you want a commission. That is wonderful! There are a couple of things to keep in mind before we begin.
First of all, a commission takes time if you want it done well. That is why I will keep the waiting list updated as i work though them. If you keep a track of it, you will see how long it will take before I get to yours.
A QUICK INTRODUCTION:
When you email me asking for a digital piece, we will have a brief discussion outlining what you want, and you'll get an estimate. I work out my price based on the AOI hourly rate guidelines. I charge ONLY for my time.
Upon accepting the quoted price, you are then required to send me half the cost as a nonrefundable deposit. Essentially this ensures that I am paid for at least the time I could have spent working on other pieces if you pull out, along with any time I have spent developing your piece. When you have done this, I will commence work.
You will be kept up to date with screenshots and email updates the whole way through the commissioning process! This ensures that you are happy with the end result, as if you get to see the early sketches and colour scheme early on, you can change and ask for edits to make things more to your vision.
When the commission is complete, I will send you a HIGH RES jpeg and png file over email which you can then print out for your personal use.
These commissions are for your personal use. You may not reproduce the work yourself and sell it without an expressed agreement. You may post it on social media but please credit me as the artist of the work. You may print it out for your own use.
I reserve the right to decline to do a commission that I deem inappropriate.
Know what you want
There are a lot of different variations of a commission. Do you want lineart or a digital painting? One character or several? Do you want a physical copy or are you satisfied with a digital copy?
Is your commission an OC?
Original characters are uniquely challenging for artists, which is why it is great if you are as specific as possible. The more details you can share, the better the result will be!
I will keep you as involved in the process as possible, but seeing as my classes take up a lot of my time, the art will take some time to finish as well. I beg you for some patience.
