A few people have asked so I decided to open up commissions. Prices of commissions reflect the amount of time I put into my artwork.
Note: For non-standard sizes (e.g. banners, joystick covers, etc.), I can draw different cut-offs of the character (e.g. headshot, bust, waist-up) but you will need to note me first with the details before I can give you a price.
For COMMERCIAL commissions (i.e. not for personal use), please see note at the bottom.
FUTURE COMMISSIONERS, PLEASE READ ALL OF THE BELOW
Please provide the following in your note:
Type of Commission:
Number of Characters:
Addition Description (if needed): e.g. personality info, a particular pose you want, etc.
WILL NOT DRAW
Masculine men/Older Characters
Place your order & wait for a reply from me telling you that I accept or decline your commission.
I'll send you a copy of the sketch and await your approval
When you are happy with the sketch, send payment via paypal (I WILL NOT proceed any further until payment is received)
CG finished and sent to your email (may also be uploaded on deviantart or pixiv if I am fond of it)
No refunds (unless commission is cancelled by myself for emergency reason)
No major edits/changes will be made once you receive the FINISHED image. By that point you've already approved the sketch and should have pointed out any problems you have at that stage of the commission. *Minor edits might be made (e.g. if the colour seems off somewhere or a small detail about your character's design was missed by myself). Please understand that changes to sketches are not too difficult whereas changes to fully cg'd/lined pictures is quite tideous (changes to the line work means having to re-cg parts or entire areas of the image, which adds many additional hours of work).
Will try to finish your commission within 2-3 weeks from your payment (depends on complexity)
You must supply reference or sufficient written description so that I know what your character(s) looks like or have some general understanding as to what it is you want.
Note* For certain reasons I am not always able to accept every commission query I receive. Usually it's because I already have a long list and cannot accept new ones until the list is cut down in size, but occasionally the request may be something I consider better suited for a different artist.
**IF YOU DECIDE TO CANCEL YOUR COMMISSION, LET ME KNOW BEFORE SKETCH.**
About Commercial commissions, I do accept them however:
Since commercial commissions enable the customer to gain profit through the artwork produced, the price will be higher than my usual rates (usually double). Please understand that if you were to commission a professional, industry illustrator their prices would be significantly more than what I offer, so paying double my original rates is still far below market rate.
I do not work for free or for some future, undetermined profit you may make.
I will most likely say no to LONG TERM jobs, unless the financial benefits are great enough an incentive.
If there are multiple artists working as a team on a single project, please know that there are limits to the degree I will change my style (e.g. I will not draw extremely muscular men or a strong shounen style). I think it is important for 'team projects' to assemble a group of artists that have styles that 'mesh' together in order to ensure consistent quality/style. If I think that my style will not blend well with others on your team, I will say no.
