Some belated holiday cheer for you all!
And now, to business. The last few months have been pretty insane, but I've managed to finish most of my commissions from 2013. If you still have a commission in the works with me, fear not, it shall be done! Otherwise, I'm open for the year, so if you want to get a commission let me know, as the slots fill up pretty quickly. I look forward to working with you!
Basic Commission Process:
Step 1: Decide what kind of a commission you want.
The easiest way to determine what style you desire and the cost is to look at the samples below. The samples are not limited to what I can do, but they'll give you a rough idea.
Subjects include, but are not necessarily limited to: Existing characters, original characters (yours or my own), comics, fantasy, storyboards, bromance, friendship, still-life, portraits (human, animal, anthro, other) , photo-restoration /manipulation. If you're not sure if I can do it, don't hesitate to ask!
I WON'T do: Pornography, explicitly Yaoi/Yuri/bi-relationships, anything too sexually charged or violent (If you're not sure, discuss your ideas with me, and I'll tell you where the line is.)
Step 2: Discussion of concept and commission price.
This may be done in notes through Deviant Art, by email, or other method of private messaging (I use the first two the most, but whatever you're most comfortable with. ) Once the basic concept is agreed upon, I will give you an initial price estimate.
Note: I've had to re-tool some of my prices, which will be reflected below in the sample list. Individual prices will vary, but the samples will give you a rough idea. (These sample prices do not affect past commissions where a price has already been discussed and fixed upon) .
Step 3: Concept Sketches.
I will send preliminary sketches via email to you, at which time you will pay half the commission price in advance. Payment may be sent via Paypal or regular mail. I will give you my information privately at that time. Any change in price will also be finalized then, since preliminary concept work helps me to better gauge the time and effort that will go into the finished product. However, the initial estimate and final price will probably not vary too much, if at all, so don't worry!
Step 4: Final Draft.
Once I have the final draft completed I will send you a low-resolution file via email so you can approve it, or request changes. If your changes are minor, or the result of a fault on my part, there is no extra charge. However, major revisions will otherwise cost extra.
Step 5: Payment and Finished Product.
Once the commission is completed to everyone's satisfaction, you will send the other half of the payment. Once I have been paid in full, I will send you the high-resolution file via email, as well as an invoice. Payment in installments is an option and can be discussed on a commission-by-commission basis.
Note: A physical copy of your commission can be printed and framed and sent to you, but you must cover the cost, as well as shipping and handling. Let me know if this is something you want and we can discuss the details.

For those of you who see your commissioned pieces here, and the price is different than what you remember paying, it's because I've re-vamped my system. If you already have a commission with me from before this date, it won't affect the price of your existing commission.
