Commissions

Yes, I am available for paid commissions.
There are some things you might want to consider before contacting me though;

I do custom artwork and that means I have to know what you want, how you would like it to look, how the character(s) should be and what the painting should depict. It's also important to know what will happen with my painting when it's done. Is it for publication or private use and what size and format would be preferred? Those are important details that influence the price.
I can't consider commissions without a full briefing by private note.

I am pretty versatile and good at what I do. I'm fast, efficient, discrete and reliable, but I am never cheap.
I will usually pass on commissions under 150 Euro (for line art) or 250 (for full colour) as nothing serious in my style can be done for fees like that, but to be honest; if you want something worthwhile and lasting it'll probably cost more.
Erotic art is frowned upon anyway and it won't get any better if I would do rush work just because the budget is not adequate.

I DON'T HAVE PRICE LISTS AS I AM NOT A FAST FOOD RESTAURANT!
Every job is different and I need to know how much time I would have to invest to make a sensible quote.
So, you have to brief me first.

I'm not limited to erotic art. I'll be happy to make you something else. As I am in advertising I can make almost anything believable. As long as the main subject is people. I doze off when I only have to make machines of any kind, buildings or landscapes.

Most commissions do not make it into my galleries. That is because they're either too personal and sensitive for the client or because it is too different for my portfolio. I'd like that to reflect my personal interests.
I have to consider that whatever I post anywhere might generate more similar commissions and I am careful not to wind up in scenes or get stuck on themes or subjects that are not mine. I don't mind to digress now and again thematically but all within limits as time is always of the essence.
If you understand all that feel free to note me or to email me via my official site with your proposal (indecent or otherwise :)). Commissions can't be discussed in the comments section.

Thank you

Model Smile
Goodmorning!! It’s time for me to be creative and artistic again. 😊 No no, don’t ask me to paint you while you stay put on that couch, taking selfies! If you got the stuff to be a model or even a Muse, go and actually pose in person for a good artist/photographer near you! Great creative and artistic things may happen!!

No Service
But you don't need to upload selfies on vacation anyway. You can do that later, but please do, by all means. :D 
If you ride fast (and annoyingly loud) machines in settings like that, pay attention to where you're going and don't get distracted by the lovely scenery.

The wolf and the maiden
I actually started this with a portrait of Gillian Anderson when the X-files were on air the first time, but it has been dormant so long in my work in progress folder that she left the picture (mad of course :D ) Here's what became of it. Finally :)

Viking maiden
I know, the Snow Leopard has been nowhere near vikings ever, as they're from a different continent but I just thought it would look good :) They're not that big either. Bite me :D 
Oh, and I do have a nude version (as usual) but...in this case it didn't look right in the cold.
Someone always would complain about that too by the way. :D

More warriors
You don’t do any men they say (just the other day someone did). I do. But not nearly as much as women.
After some deep soul searching I think it’s because it always feels like I’m doing a self portrait of sorts even when I exaggerate the hell out of him. I’m either painting my inner spirit or an outer version of who I’d like to be. I’m not really that into me.
Unless I’m commissioned I only do it when I am annoyed or mad or something and then usually warriors.
Painting women is exploring beauty and elegance, which is something I can do every day. Completely different and a quite peaceful mindset at that. That’s my happy place.

Funny stories;
Last week I received two requests by note within the same hour on the same day. One was by the only lady in the western world not having any reasonable digital photographing device (camera, webcam or phone) who sent me photos from the 1970/80's and claimed they were recent. I don't mind working from vintage material but the requester should always be honest to me. I'm not that stupid. When you work with images all day you tend to get an eye for it. I told her what I thought and she blocked me immediately.
The other one was from someone I presumed being a transvestite or transgender who wanted me to paint him/her. Could have been a woman with some imagination.
The material in his/her gallery consisted only of pictures yanked from the internet without proper credits in which his/her head was edited in very poorly and it really did not look good in any way, shape or form.
I don't work with material like that and I don't work with trans-anything. Not because I judge but because it's outside my realm of interest and when I spend time on something I like to be interested.
I only wrote back that it would never happen and he/she still had to ask why not.

I get a lot of odd requests (even though I rarely do requests) but so far not back to back on the same day. Must have been full moon? I guess it's time to paint another werewolf :)

Frans Mensink
Artist | Professional | Digital Art
Netherlands
I am a freelancer, self employed, self taught illustrator for 25 years. Started in Heavy Metal Art (CD art, gag-comic in Aardschok magazine, posters and such) but leaned towards the erotic and fantasy always (sometimes in a combination of the two realms). I have a graphic novel trilogy published by NBMpublishing.com about Kristina, Queen of Vampires (hardcore stuff), had erotic and mainstream gag-comics published in magazines, newspapers and have illustrated websites, books and stories.
I have done many storyboards and such (lay-outs, animatics) for ad agencies worldwide.

I photograph models often which has helped me with the lighting, expression and mood in my paintings and I always try to capture my models as sexy, elegant, intense, emotive and sensual beings more often than not.

Limited numbers of personally autographed posters are available at escapecollectibles.com and a couple (not autographed) posters are available on Deviant Art. See the section above.
If you are interested in commissioning me, please read the section below first.
For much more art and information visit my website or other social media like Facebook, Instagram (both seriously censored of course because the moderators might be underaged) and Tumblr.

On my website there's a link to a vimeo video (under tutorials). My process hasn't changed that much even though that's been there for years now.
