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!

*NEW!* Pet Portraits


Due to popular demand, I have added pet portraits as a commission option. Pet portraits have a flat price of USD 150 for a fully painted portrait of your pet!

Detailed Commission Information:


This is a bit lenghty, but I would apprecaite if you went over it!
(It covers how to order a commission, what I do and don't, payment info, additional commission sheet details, and how my art process works)


How to order a commission:

I have a google form that you can fill out here: [ FORM LINK ]

If for any reason my form isnt up, or is otherwise unavailable, feel free to contact me via email.

- 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. 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. Once we have agreed on the final price, I will issue you a PayPal invoice.


- Payments:


All payments are upfront.

The 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 - this will however depend on what you want me to do with it, and how far you want me to take it. You are in full control of the final price, I will only present you with options if you request so.
Most commissions end up costing as much as is stated in my commission sheet.


As soon as the piece is finished, you will receive a full resolution image with my signature via email.



- Commission Sheet details and explanations:


Difference between simple and complex background:
In a simple background there isn't a lot of detail going on in the rendering of the said background. It can be anything from a simple colored backdrop against a character, to a more defined shapes like trees, natural elements like fire or water, buildings -basically anything as long as it's not very detailed.

In a complex background the shapes and shading of objects are more polished and refined, and an equal amount of work has been put into it as the characters in the foreground.
A complex background may or may not be blurred out of focus for the final result to give the painting a sense of depth if a client desires so.


Headshots:

A headshot is a drawing/painting of a characters head only (and a bit of neck). These are especially popular as they can be used as icons on a lot of social media platforms.

Busts:

A bust is a drawing/painting of a character's head, neck shoulders and chest.

Halfbody:

A halfbody is a drawing/painting of a character from the waist-up OR from thigh-up. Please state which option are you going for when commissioning.

Fullbody:

A fullbody is a drawing/painting of the entires character body. In some cases, feet or other extremities like hands may go out of frame if the composition of the image demands it/clients wishes for it. Please state if you want the 100% of the body shown in your commission or not.

Colored Sketch:

A colored sketch is a drawing in which the linework has been filled with flat colors with NO shading. Color gradients do not count as shading, and they are also applicable here.

Shaded Sketch:

A shaded sketch is a drawing in which the linework has been filled with flat colors and then slightly shaded, with the lineart left UNTOUCHED. Colors may apply to the lineart, but the main difference between this and a full painting is that the lines stay, and is not as shaded in full detail, but it's still aestethically pleasing and crisp looking. Basic shadows, key lights, reflection lights and colored shadows are also applicable in this type of work.

Full Painting:

A full painting is a fully rendered piece in which no linework remains and everything is shaded to crisp detail.
Brushes used will depend on the type of textures I am rendering, be it fur, leather, metal, skin, or similar. A full painting
has a multitude of shadows and lights depending on the atmosphere, mood and the environment.


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.

 


- 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!
