Commissions and Contact

COMMISSION & CONTACT INFO

Thank you for your interest in my artwork!

I have made a simple commission sheet that covers most of the basic info you might need if you are interested in purchasing my services. If you have any other questions, or simply want to email me don't hesitate to do so!

General Commission Information:



- What do I draw:

Character artwork - animals (pets, wildlife, extinct animals, famous critters etc.), fantasy creatures (dragons, griffons, etc.) , hybrids (anthropomorphic characters, monsters etc.) humans (fantasy/game/book/movie/TV show characters etc.)

I will not draw real-life people, gore, extreme NSFW fetishes, still life, vector art, graphic/logo design


- NSFW art:


NSFW stands for “not safe for work”. It is not my primary occupation but I will not turn down a NSFW request if it’s within my tastes/abilities. However, note that the price for this type of artwork is higher, especially if there are multiple variations, such as different outfits, poses, etc. Ask me any questions if you’re not sure.



- Regarding art trades and requests:


I am open to art trades and requests but I am not obligated to accept them. Usually reserved for special occasions, or in form of art raffles, contests, birthday gifts for friends, etc.



- Transaction details and method of sending payment:


All transactions are done through PayPal. Depending on the country where the money is coming from, I may my ask clients to use the “Send money to friend/family”, if there are no additional, or large fees that come with that option. As well, please state the country from which you’re sending the money, so I can properly pay my taxes.



- Payments:


Upon the approval of the sketch, 50% of the total payment is paid upfront for orders above 100$.

For orders under 100$, I take full frontal payments. 

Prices listed in my commission sheet are starting prices, and they may vary depending on the size and complexity of the image, and how much time it took for each painting to complete. A full render with a background and a character may rise up over 200/300$ or more if’s extremely demanding and takes a few weeks to complete. However, this doesn’t mean every new order will have fluctuating prices - most commissions in fact, cost as much as its stated in my commission sheet. I am open to negotiation when it comes to prices and I can definitely adjust depending on the client’s budget, but I am not obligated to do so.

When the price is agreed on, for orders above 100$, the final 50% is paid after the commission is complete.


Please do not arrange a commission if you cannot pay on time, which is 24 hours after completion at the latest!


After the full transaction has been made, you will receive a full resolution image with my signature via email.



- Commission Sheet details and explanations:


I offer three types of art services, with variations between each: sketch, painting and 3D painting. Variations include: half/full body, extra characters and simple/complex background. Each has its own set of starting prices, detailed in the commission sheet.


Sketch: Simple as it sounds. Non-colored sketch on a white background. Amount of detail and clean linework depends on the client’s wishes. You can request flat colors to be added for an additional price.


Painting: A digital painting, that started from a sketch, created in Photoshop using brushes for coloring and shading. Full piece is a detailed painting. You can request a simple or a full background - an example of a simple background would be a colored backdrop with some details like particle effects, smoke or flames, or very simple shapes. A full background is a piece with a lot of background details, like full scenes set in rooms, forests, outdoors, cities. Etc.


3D Painting:  A 3D painting is a hybrid painting between 3D elements and traditional painting techniques. I’ve made this option for two reasons: first, it’s a good alternative for the client if they can’t afford a full digital painting, and I can produce it faster. With this method, a 3D model is used as a base, instead of a sketch.This is a common industry practice that cuts the workflow times to provide efficiency with quality results. Important to understand:  I DO NOT CREATE THE MODELS MYSELF.  I take existing, already finished models and work with that. If you would like to order this, please make sure that the model of your character already exists.

Example: game characters, or free, downloadable models. Please note that I do not simply pose a 3D character in an artificial setting and call it a day. I take it a step further and invest extra effort into it, because I want to achieve a digital painting feel with all of my works.

 

Full body vs Half body:  A character drawn in full body image is shown from head to toe. If there are only for example, feet or lower part of legs missing, this also counts. Half body paintings include busts, portraits - any painting where the majority of the body is not displayed.

 


- Art Process:


If you’re ordering an artwork of an existing character (fan art), your own personal character, or something inspired by real life animals, please provide me with as much references as you can. References include: photos, reference sheets, other artworks, your previous commissions. If you cannot provide references, please be as descriptive as possible.


I don’t require a visual reference of your character if you’re giving me artistic freedom to draw something from my imagination, for example: “draw me a portrait of a blue dragon with yellow eyes and white beard”. I may charge more if the process of creating a character is long or demanding. Please communicate your wants and needs, especially in the early stages of the sketch, where making alterations and changes is the easiest.


You will be updated every step of the way, from start to finish.  For me it’s important that the process of creating something together is enjoyable and fun, and I urge any potential client to engage, isn’t afraid to express a dislike or like  towards the direction and that he/she understands the responsibility of cooperation and replying often. 


I will do my best to create your work as fast, and as best as I can - if there are delays due to technical difficulties or any other problems, I will always inform you. I extremely value your patience and understanding..

Please note that by commissioning me you are agreeing to my Terms of Service!



Thank you very much for reading, and I look forward to working with you!
