PayPal email: (the email address I will send the invoice to)
Commission type and size: (sketch/colour + bust shot/half body/full body)
Number of characters: (the number of subjects you want drawn)
Character details: (a short summary of the most important details of the visual references, and a few words to describe your character's personality is usually enough!)
How would you like them drawn?: (a short description of what you had in mind for this piece. If you can't quite decide, it's okay to list off some ideas for me to choose from!)
1. ordering // 2. payment // 3. completion // 4. problems
If all the places on the waiting list are full, I'm afraid you're out of luck. I'll always post status updates on when more waiting list places are likely to become available on my twitter and tumblr! How it works is: I post a link to a form where you can enter your contact details, and then I will do a random name drawing a few days later to fill up the list again.
So long as it isn't in my "won't draw" list, feel free to send me a message.
Sure! Just send me an email with your ideas and we can work it out together :D
I can, but there would be an extra charge for heavily detailed characters and outfits as they take much more time to draw. Also with armour specifically, the more references you can get me the better.
Of course, I make it standard policy to send them at specific stages anyway! For sketch type, I will send a rough WIP (work-in-progress image) when working out the pose. For coloured works, I will send you a WIP at both the sketch and lineart stages. I can even send additional WIPs when we're trying to work out the desired colouring too.
Yeah I can do that, although designing things from scratch usually incurs an additional cost dependant on what exactly you'd like me to create. If you can collect reference and inspiration images of the kind of result you're looking for, this will help me a lot, rather than just a description on its own!
No limit, go nuts :D
Sure, just ask. The final dimensions vary greatly depending on the piece itself. For half body shots and up, I'll usually try to send you a version that's 1000 px (on its longest side) at the minimum, at 300dpi. I may be able to provide a larger image more suitable to printing if you request it. If you need your artwork to be a certain size, please let me know before I make a start.
Sure thing, I'm trained as a graphic designer so that wouldn't be an issue.
Absolutely! So long as you send me image references of said characters, anything is possible, baby.
I've drawn literally hundreds of commissions for people over a span of a decade and built up a sizeable supportive client base across various social media. Check out some of these testimonials my customers have written to give you an idea of what to expect from me. I'm on the level, I promise!
Of course. If it turns out the commission you want is not in your price range I will completely understand if you want to back out before we start, please don't feel as though it's impolite to do so. Maybe I can draw for you another time!
PayPal. I can also send you an invoice for a bank transfer via PayPal even if you don't have an account.
Check out this handy little guide I made to help you through the payment process!
Aw absolutely! You can include it along with your invoice payment, or you can click the Ko-fi link below for a link to my donation page. Even the smallest tip is hugely appreciated, thank you so much!!
I would really prefer to be paid in full before work on your piece begins, but I understand this is not always possible when waiting on a pay cheque etc. I'm happy for 50% of the total cost to be paid first, and the remaining 50% after a work-in-progress (WIP) has been sent to you. Know that the artwork will be heavily watermarked until payment is complete, though.
Have you ordered a whole bunch of commissions from me previously? Then yeah buddy! I can give you a loyalty discount ♥
The base prices you see above were calculated by time + effort. The total cost of a commission is the base cost + any extras. It really depends on what you'd like and what your budget is!
Well there's the back button!
The turnaround can differ from a week to a month, depending on the number of other customers in the queue and real life obligations. I will give you a personalised ETA when you place your order and update you if things are looking any different. I will always try to keep you in the loop!
Feel free to contact me if the completion estimate (the ETA) has passed to ask for a status update on your order. You are not a bother and I would be happy to speak to you.
Please please please order any time-sensitive commissions at least a month in advance. However, if you really do need it quickly, I'll usually be able to offer a rush service at an additional cost suitable to the size of the piece!
Since I tend to stream very sporadically I wouldn't be able to schedule it for you specifically, sorry.
Go ahead and post the completed artwork all you want! (not the WIPs though thanks) Credit given to me is not required but definitely appreciated, especially if you have chosen to crop/resize the image down to a desired focus. Using it in graphic design or website themes is fine too. Please don't edit the artwork directly though. If you would like something changing do just ask me directly!
Absolutely not. You are NOT buying a commercial license to your artwork. Please make no attempt to sell it. However, if you are interested in buying a commercial license, you'll need to ask me about that specifically.
Of course, I will always give you the 300 dpi version suitable for printing at a clear resolution. Feel free to use your commissioned artwork as a design to print on personal apparel or items, so long as you make no attempt to sell them for profit (Feel free to send photos of printed works to me, I would love to see them!) If you know for a fact that you'll need a specific size, to fit a frame for example, be sure to let me know when you place the order. It's a little tougher to edit it afterwards!
It's possible that I may be able to print your artwork and ship it to you in a postal tube for an additional fee relevant to the size of the print and what country I would be shipping to. Please ask well in advance as it depends on where I'm working at the time and what printers I have access to.
I'm always happy to make small edits along the way, of course, that's what the back-and-forth WIP process is for. Even after the final version has been completed, I'm fine making little adjustments so don't be afraid to ask! If you have a large number of things you want me to change that would alter your piece quite drastically, it's customary to send a tip to cover additional time spent - but make sure you ask if I can do it first!
I do apologise for any lateness! Feel free to contact me if the completion estimate (the ETA) has passed to ask for a status update on your order. You are not a bother and I would be happy to speak to you.
If I have accepted your commission very recently, requesting minor changes is usually totally fine! But if you're looking to get a drastically different piece, it may not be possible if work on your original order has already begun, or else incur an additional charge for the time spent. Please get in touch ASAP if you're looking to amend your order in any way.
I'm sorry if that's the case, but I'm afraid I cannot offer you a refund if you have already received the finished piece as my service has already been completed; this is the nature of commissioned artwork. I'm more than happy to make small changes for you though, just ask. I aim to please!
