Note: If I've already given you an October or November slot, don't worry! You're still getting your commissions as promised
For anyone waiting on a reply from me, I apologize for being so dilatory a correspondent. The reason for my relative slowness to answer messages lately, and not posting as much art, is that DerpyCon has confiscated my life! No complaints here; I've been asked to create the official convention art (badges, program guides and such ) , and I'm super excited!
Most of it is done, but I won't be posting anything until after the convention is over (for obvious reasons) . For anyone that will be going to DerpyCon, or will be in the area (Morristown, New Jersey) from November 17th through the 19th , I'd love to see you! Hopefully I'll be able to tell you where my table will be, but I'm not sure yet.
Anyway, thank you all for being so patient. This is my first time doing official convention art, and also my first convention ever
For those of you wanting commissions all my slots are full until December, and those are going fast, so drop me a line!

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. Not sure I can or will 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.
