Open for Commissions!

Hey there,

Over the years, I've had many people ask if I took commissions, and for the longest while the answer has been "No, but hopefully eventually".  Well, I'm finally going to be setting some time aside to do some if anyone out there is still interested.

For the immediate future I'm just going to be looking over proposed projects rather than setting up individual tiers with set prices or anything like that... that may come later.  Right now, if you're interested in hiring me to produce some artwork for you, contact me with an idea of what you'd be looking for and what your general timeline and budget might be and we'll see if we can work something out.  (I can say that, budget-wise, the more elaborate fan pieces I have done in the past have been in the $200-and-up range, but it can very much depend on the complexity of the piece and simple portraits would be much less.)  Please understand that I'll still have to leave time for my regular gig doing freelance concept and production art as it arises, as that pay from commercial productions is usually significantly more than one can expect from people requesting fan art.  Still, the stuff that I get to draw for them is usually pretty mundane and uninteresting, so spending more time on colorful and fun compositions would be a nice change of pace if I can make it financially viable.

So please, if you have something interesting that you'd like me to draw, ask away... either here via Note or over at Fimfiction (I do enjoy collaborating on artwork for stories).  If there are many offers for work, I'll have to limit those selected.  Please graciously understand if I feel it's not the right fit for me... I've seen the nightmarish interactions various artists have had online with people requesting artwork, but I've mostly only had positive interactions with fellow fans and hope to keep that going.  

I realize that this is a rather hesitant first step into the field of doing commissions, and hopefully once I feel my way around it and get more comfortable I can do this more regularly and reach a greater variety of set commission levels and such.  I really appreciate the support of everyone who enjoys my artwork, whether through monetary support or simple views and encouragement!  Regardless of how this little experiment turns out, I hope to be sharing artwork and interacting with you all for a long time to come!

Alright! How much do you charge? I bet around USD $200 or more. Sad ;(

At the moment I’m kind of feeling things out and any high-end commissions would get priority.  I do hope to eventually get around to offering some simpler works of single characters or portraits that would hopefully be affordable for most if they were interested in having me draw those.
