Commission Price Guide by Ahkward Commission Price Guide by Ahkward
I figured I would do something nice for everyone. Plus, I'll be moving in 2 weeks and having a little bit of wiggle room in the budget would be nice. I'm driving to Colorado, leaving on the 31st of July. I will not be able to start on these commissions until AFTER I move and finish my current list. I have a few left and I will honor them first, so please do not worry if you are still waiting for art from me. I'm simply lining up my next set. If you are unwilling to wait at least 1-2 months, please do not order.

Also, I want to be able to do more Naor and personal work.
This will be the first time I'm home after 3 years in college. Yes, even holidays. I spent ONE holiday at home in CO over the last 3 years. So I miss everyone and everything terribly. I don't want to spend all my time drawing. (crazy I know) So, I am limiting slots to 10. Thank you for your understanding! You are allowed a max of three so that others may have a chance. If there are spaces open at the end of the sale, and you want more than three for whatever reason, I will allow you more then.

How do I decide? These are first come first serve. Thank you. Payments are points or paypal.

How to order?  Comment please to reserve up to three spots. DO NOT ask for spots if you can't pay for them before July 30th!


This offer opens on July 14th and closes on 11:59pm July 30th.

1. EncounterEthereal
2. EncounterEthereal
3. MLee
4. FadingWraith
5. WolfoftheAlphaKings
6. GingerHighlandGirl
7. SpiritWolf
8. SpiritWolf
9. Twilittiger
10. Accelina




So if you have any questions, comment or note.


** I pay my bills and survive on these, so please do not ask me to work for free. I MIGHT barter with you on the pricing a little, but only with good reason. I did raise the prices a bit since last time, this is because the price of my apartment, fuel/car, and utilities have all risen. Thank you for understanding. 

** I am not listing full color digital / traditional here this time, however if you would like to ask about it, feel free. I prefer quick fast work, but I'm happy to work with you if you want something more. :D

** In the past I included shipping in my prices. I NO LONGER DO THIS. It is starting to cut into my funds too much to not charge for it anymore. Thank you for your understanding about this. If you don't want it shipped, that's fine too.

**If you would like me to do an official signed print if a digital artwork, I can do that too. I will ask you pay for shipping and printing.

Hooray! I'm a lucky duck |D You'd like information here, so I read, yeah? May I have (fullbody) Antaos walking through some sort of forest or greenery of the sort?  I utterly love how you draw trees and stuff @_@ I always pictured Antaos and his family living in some peaceful, not so densely populated woods with nice meadows and shady trees. You could throw in a waterfall or something if you'd like too. I just love how you do nature scenery. : D

Hey, it's been almost two weeks. I need to know if you have decided on which commissions you want and what you want drawn. The deadline for these commissions is approaching (on the 30th) and if you haven't decided AND paid by then, I will give your slots to someone else.

Thank you for your interest!

Yes, however if you do not decide before the sale closes on the 30th I will give your slots to someone else. I do not want it lingering in my to do list for very long if it can be helped.

Thanks for your interest! You have slot 8 and 9.

I think I'd like two of the clean pencil ones. Quick question, if I wanted them shipped to me, would it be the +5 each or +5 for both since they're going to the same address?
Reply
:iconahkward:
Ahkward Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2015  Professional Traditional Artist
Alright, and yes, I can have you pay only once for shipping. Since they are going to the same place, it would be silly to charge you twice.

I thought so too but I thought it best to clarify haha. Ok then, where do you want the info for the characters? Here or in a note?
Reply
:iconahkward:
Ahkward Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2015  Professional Traditional Artist
Mhm, good idea. As for the information, here would be preferred; but if you'd prefer notes due to stash reasons, I am ok with that. I get a lot of notes, and it is easier to scroll through comments than search notes.

SSP003Callder

I would like one of them to be of Callder ^ I don't know if you do any BG at all to it but if you could have him swimming in fresh water that would be awesome. He has webbed feet, five toes on the front feet but four on the back. I can give you direct links to the species refs if you'd like or you can browse through them at the Lorcaelan-Registry

As for the second piece, I'm not quite sure yet. I wanted to get it for my husband but he has not told me the character yet XD

Also, do you want payment before or after?
Reply
:iconahkward:
Ahkward Featured By Owner Edited Jul 14, 2015  Professional Traditional Artist
Yeah, I remember Tat drawing him. I could add that BG, yes. BG's are included in the price.

Since I'm planning to move, I would prefer to have it before so I can have it there id I end up needing it. e_e It'll be a tight move. Take your time, though I'd prefer to have the decision made before July 30th, when the offer was due to end originally.

If you could, send the payment to ahwkard@yahoo.com

Do you have any traditional color commissions?
Reply
:iconahkward:
Ahkward Featured By Owner Jul 11, 2015  Professional Traditional Artist
That depends on how you want it colored? If I color, I usually use a mix of markers and colored pencils. I've done them before. What were you thinking of, subject and size wise?
Reply
:iconbc-rain:
BC-Rain Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I was thinking the same size and style as the sketch ink/wash, and the subject would be: beautycrane11.deviantart.com/a…
I was thinking a forest and foggy-water type background (but anything' fine really). About how much would that cost? (I definitely don't have enough money now, this is for future reference)
Reply
:iconahkward:
Ahkward Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2015  Professional Traditional Artist
Since your character has two sets of wings, even as a sketch that would take some time... plus the color... and background... I'd ask 80$ for that. With my estimate of how long it'll take.

-cough if you wait until monday it'll be on sale-  e___e I do plan on doing the sale, and at the sale price I'd lower it to 50.

If you still only want the black and white the sale price tomorrow will be 15.

-cough in a while I mean a few months I literally have 500 points cough- But even if you made it 50, I'd feel terrible for all the work you were putting in... if I were to get the traditional color, I think i'd rather go full price :) I'LL TRY TO MAKE ANOTHER 1000 POINTS IN A WEEK *furiously makes adoptables*

:iconahkward:
Ahkward Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2015  Professional Traditional Artist
Aha, no worries. I wasn't sure what the budget was. 80$ is 8000 points and 50$ is 5000 points. I certainly don't mind waiting for payment if it's gonna be in points. Points take around a month to get from dA to my bank account with 3weeks of that just in "pending transfer" time. Not fast enough to use to move, so if you'd like to order and give me 500 as a partial payment to reserve the spot, I'd be happy to accept that.

Just a curiosity question, what is the difference between Anthro and Furry? 
Reply
:iconahkward:
Ahkward Featured By Owner May 30, 2015  Professional Traditional Artist
Anthro -  They are only human to a certain degree, but otherwise they have all the instincts and natural tendencies of an animal. They just get to have opposable thumbs, a reasoning mind like people, but look more animal that human.

Furry - Furry it is a human with fur, ears, and tail, they are averagely human in every way. You can dress them up any way you want, give them superpowers, a big sword, a nice car, etc.. They are basically human and act as human, maybe SOME animal tendencies. Their anatomy is more human than animals. They tend to be sparkle-wolf in design with large variation in colors.

Granted there are lots of examples where lines blur, but in general I see general differences. Also, Goldenwolf has a lot of good examples of Anthros, not furries. Go to FA and the difference becomes very hard to see.

Furry/zoanthrope VS Anthro by DragonXborne   This does a good job of getting my point across.

I don't really seem them as different personally, just two ends of a wide spectrum. Well, I do consider "Furry" as being different in a way? It's hard for me to explain...

Anyway! How long will you have commissions open? I'd like to get one of your pencil sketches I just can't do it this pay check. =)

:iconahkward:
Ahkward Featured By Owner May 30, 2015  Professional Traditional Artist
I see them as different mainly since they are different in mentality.

They will be open forever.

lol well I think I have time then XD Do you ask for payment in advance, half in advance half after, all after? I assume in advance but just checking (and sorry if you stated that and I missed it somewhere..)
Reply
:iconahkward:
Ahkward Featured By Owner May 30, 2015  Professional Traditional Artist
it depends on the price. I prefer payment upfront since they go to bills and such, but if the commissioner has a good reason or if the price is over 75$ I could do a payment plan.
