After working my butt off for a couple weeks dedicating time to commissions, I've come to the realization that I need to make a few adjustments in my commission prices. My goal has always, always been to offer affordable art for everyone be it a photo manipulation or a 50x50 pixel, and I'll continue to strive for that goal, within reason. The realization I reached was that I'm over working myself. As a matter of fact, I'm writing this at 9AM after working on art from 7PM to 5AM this morning, all to try desperately to just make the bare minimum for my bills. The short story is that I'm working a little too hard and it's starting to ware on me a little, so the following are some adjustments I'll be making for my commission prices. I hope these adjustments will be found reasonable and acceptable, and if I need to make further adjustments, I won't hesitate! 


Photo Manipulations


WHAT'S THE TRUTH by elegant--tragedy WE AIN'T EVER GETTING OLDER by elegant--tragedy  WARRIOR IN WASTE by elegant--tragedy
A complex combination of stock images to best portray your character in the desired theme and scene. Alternate images available for off-site use and can be included in the order, free of charge. A full photo manipulation is usually composed of 2-4 blended background images, and 1-2 stock images. Average work time is 4-7 hours, but may be longer if the character is considered complex.
Price: $42 USD 
* additional fees may incur if:
                    - the main subject is highly complex
                    - an additional character is added to the composition 
                      - a companion or heavy armor set is requested


Custom Designs


Daharielmate by elegant--tragedyFavi by elegant--tragedy Tribs1a by elegant--tragedy
A custom design is a creation of a new character or a redesigned character that has little or no similar features to the original design. Customs are offered on my wide variety of templates, or, they can be created on a newly requested template for an additional fee. Each custom design is created with the commissioner's perfect idea in mind, and double checked to assure the final product is the best it can be. Custom creation can range from 1-6 hours, depending on the complexity of the design. Minor additives such as small jewelry, small bits of fur, horns, or leg adornments can be added free of charge. Extensive armor, outfits, or modifications will cost an extra sum of $5 USD. 
Price: $21 USD 



Reference Redos


Lb1 by elegant--tragedy Minx3 by elegant--tragedySuz2 by elegant--tragedy
A reference redo is classified as a re-application of an existing character onto one of my custom mini reference templates, or, if requested for an additional fee, applied on a new mini reference template. Redos are great for updating or giving a face lift to pre-existing designs that need minor fixes or brightening up with brand new art to bring the design back to life. Average work time is 1-3 hours. As with customs, application of outfits will incur additional fees. Reference redos will now be priced on a complexity scale. A simple bay with a wavy mane and tail is not on the same level as a rainbow pegasus with dreads and braids and three eyeballs, and will now be recognized! 
Price: as low as $8 USD, as high as $16 USD



Full Body Drawings


I CAN SEE FOREVER by elegant--tragedy GOOD DAY GONNA COME by elegant--tragedy MAYBE IN LIGHTS by elegant--tragedy
A full body drawing is a composition of your character and its desired extras in your desired pose. All drawings are drawn large scale (2000-3000px wide), then scaled down for a web-safe reduction. Average work time ranges from 2-6 hours. Additional fees may incur for extremely complex designs or the addition of highly complex additions/extras. 
Price: $27 USD



Bust Drawings


I WISH THAT I COULD BE LIKE THE COOL KIDS by elegant--tragedy  LET'S COME TOGETHER by elegant--tragedy  HER HEAVEN WILL BE A LOVE WITHOUT BETRAYAL by elegant--tragedy
A bust drawing is a nicely sized composition of your character from the shoulders up. All drawings are done at large scale, then scaled down for web-friendly viewing. No additional fees will incur for extras. Average work time ranges from 1-4 hours. 
Price: $16 USD 



Chibi and Page Dolls


Untitled-2 by elegant--tragedy
A chibi or pagedoll commission will be small in size and range from 100x100 to 500x500 pixels. These are done in a quick, sketchy style and have have uncrisp lines. These are done relatively quickly, and should be completed in 1-2 hours. 
Price: $11 USD



Outfit Design


Eagles by elegant--tragedy Forest Prince by elegant--tragedy Ali1 by elegant--tragedy
Outfit designs usually include extras that overtake 50% or more of the design. These designs may include a hairstyle change, or a color change of the original design. Average outfit design work time ranges from 1-2 hours. Outfits can only be applied on my mini references, and can be added to any regular reference redo or custom order.
Price: $12 USD, or an additional $5 on your total, per outfit, when ordering a reference redo or custom design



Pixels


PIXEL COMMISSIONS OPEN! by elegant--tragedy
A pixel is a 50x50 image with animation of your choice. Pixels can be headshot images, or full body images, and can include extras if you wish. Average work time ranges from 20 minutes to an hour. 
Price: $5.49 USD



Commission Rules


- I reserve the right to refuse any commission without explanation. 
- Additional art will likely be provided for extensively long wait times, but please understand I am working hard to get your your art, and believe me, I stress myself out when I take too long. I try to make sure everything has an efficient turn around time, but health and real life tamper with my schedule often. Manipulation orders take the longest, and an approximate time will be given upon ordering.
- Refunds are not available for work that has been started or completed. I try to offer WIP status on each lengthy commission I receive. 
- Join.Me is my streaming tool of choice. If you cannot watch your stream, a PSD will be saved of your artwork until you approve the final piece.
- Slots will open and close relatively quickly providing I can turnaround art quickly. If you'd like to be placed on the wait list if my commissions are closed, send me a note! 
- Rush slots are available in rarity and will incur a large additional fee. Patience is important in designing! 
- Any commissions placed prior to this journal will be accepted at their previously discussed price, don't worry! 
- If you have any questions, please just ask ;u;

hey sweets! if you're looking for one on a mini reference, yes c: any other type of custom design would have to wait until I finish the two others I need to complete, which wouldn't be long! If you're interested in a mini, just shoot me a note and we can get the forms done up!

Since I've come back from my hiatus, I've had to significantly increase my prices because I work and have a two year old. I totally understand, and plus, you do beautiful work! You can absolutely request the prices you have set, if not more. That also helps your fellow artists that are at your skill set, as it makes it hard to sell work at higher prices when someone of the same skill set sells them for less. :3 I've actually seen an increase in what I sell, and much more inspiration to draw since I feel I'm being fairly compensated for the time and effort.

Long story short, I think people will totally understand and that you have a quality product. :heart:

yeah i think a part of my issue was that i felt like i needed 
to keep prices low in order to keep the flow of commissions steady but it was 
just waring on me so much and i hate making people wait ;u; i really do 
try to make up the difference with long wait times, and i hope to see an increase 
of work flow, too. hopefully it'll be fun again to work on all these things ;u; 

thank you for the kind words!
