Commission Information

Journal Entry: Thu Feb 10, 2011, 9:22 AM



IMPORTANT:

I charge by the hour at a rate of 25€ (~30$ check google for current rate) per hour, meaning the price depends on how many hours you want me to spend on your piece. I can give you a rough estimate of how long it will take when you first send me your pitch, and we figure out a price that we are both happy with. 
I do not charge for the initial sketch, but I work on pre-payment only.

If you do not like these terms, then I'm sorry, but that is how I work :) I need to make a living!

Point Commissions

DO NOT accept point commissions. (Or any other internet currency)

If you want to know the prices in $ or any other currency please google "currency converter" and look what it tells you. Paypal converts the currencies for free and without fees if you send it in Euro currency!

Commission Process:

You send me a note, containing your wish to commission me and description of character and setting you want. The more detailed description the better. 
I will then tell you whether I will or won't accept the commission and negotiate the price, should I accept.
You pay in advance, so my work won't be for nothing, should you change your mind.
If a price is set and paid, I start up a sketch and send the WIP to you asap.
You can tell me, what you like and don't like about it. Do not hold back on criticism, please. I want you to like the end product!
I will update you on the process and send you the finished picture in big solution (the PSD too, if you want it) as well as upload a smaller version here on deviantArt, unless you don't want me to.
I do not give set dates as to when I will finish the painting, since I like to take my time instead of being forced to rush. I do accept reasonable deadlines if there's a specific date that the picture has to be finished (e.g. as a birthday present).


Payment: 
PayPal Only Stamp by PaulJPowers 
(for German people bank transfer is okay too)




- none -

If you break it down into and hourly wage, it's not even minimum wage. Sorry, but if you're trying to live off of art, you'll have to price it accordingly :/ The art business is highly undervalued as it is.

Yes, i read that, but itsnot possible to get real money for dA for me sadly. But if i am correct, it is possible to convert the points to paypal through a widget or so.
At least i did once one and i can still choose if i want to turn the earned points into paypal or want to have them as points *shrugs*.
Would that be possible with you ?
Reply
:icondeyvarah:
DeyVarah Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
The point conversion takes over two weeks and is just not an option for me. The amount of points I would have to ask to get equal to what I would charge in real money would turn most people away anyway. That's why I don't offer point commissions.
I'm sorry.

Wie hälst du das bei lineart commis -ist anschließendes Colorieren vom Auftraggeber -natürlich unter voller creditangabe- ok? (Hab schon erlebt, dass Leutedas ausschließen, auch wenn ichs persönlich nicht verstehe)
Interessiert wäre ich da nämlich schon und da du ja echt günstig arbeitest könnte ich mir das finanziell vllt auch erlauben. Obwohl ich ja eigentlich auch sage, dass deine Preise zu niedrig sind, aber mir käms in dem Fall zu Gute ^^`` (armer Student ist arm und hat nicht viel Gel übrig)

Ich hab persönlich gar kein Problem damit, wenn ein Lineart-commission im nachhinein coloriert wird. Malikaa hat auch gefragt und ich wüsste nicht, warum ich nein sagen soll ^^
Mag sein, dass meine Preise zu niedrig sind, ggf. erhöhe ich mit der Zeit noch. Im Moment find ich's auch schön, Leuten mit weniger Geld auch eine Chance zu geben.

Ich kann's nicht oft genug sagen ... deine Preise sind wirklich viel zu niedrig.
Wenn du 5 Minuten für eine Skizze brauchen würdest und 1-2 Stunden für ein voll coloriertes (semirealistisches) Bild, dann will ich nichts sagen. Aber ich wage das sehr zu bezweifeln. ^^;

So it's 20€ for one like that setting wolf Anthro, is that right? If so I'd love one like that, my character has wings is that extra? I don't mind, just need to know so I can add that for you. Also My character has changed colour just a little, only ref I have of the colour change at this time is her nude other wise best way to see is from my catwing feral form. Light gray underbelly, paws, feet, eyes, mussel and top of wings. Not many see it, but she has gold merging into brown at the bottom of wings, most draw it as just gold and brown, that's fine, but not what I set for her. Though I do admit it looks good that way. lol

I'd love you to draw catwing in anthro please -
Hat and clothing she has - [link] < I try and draw her with the hat on her head, with the ears coming out of two holes in the hat, it's hard to pull off, so I do draw it beside her or near her, either way works. lol

Her new colour - :thumb178499100: < she wears that collar to but it's not as lose when in her anthro form. The catwing tag on collar is gold, silver and spikes are silver.

Helping you with the info now so you don't have to worry about it later. Anything else you need to know feel free to ask me. Just need you paypal and I'll put it in tomorrow afternoon if you like, and take your time on the art, don't rush for me, take as long as you need. :3

Can you just copy&paste this to a note and send it to me? That way I can better keep track of it. Also, I can't view thumbnails in comments, please post a link for the second ref :)
And yes, wings will cost extra, since they're a pain to draw xD
