Just a little bit of country from Oklahoma, trying to bring smiles, and humor to people that want it.

My original post from my old front page is as follows, and I'm not changing it so that people still know that I'm the same person doing the same things:
"Recently I've had more and more people asking about commissions from me, so I thought it would be wise to go ahead and put down some pricing information. This is so I have something to reference people to, and don't have to repeat myself over and over.
Right now my going rate for commissions is $30 - $60 depending on level of complexity, background, amount of characters, and amount of time it takes to complete. Much like any job I keep track of the amount of time I put into a project, and expect to be paid accordingly. For example:
If I take a simple $30 project, and it takes me 2 hours to complete, I'm making $15 dollars an hour. Not too bad. However, if I take a $50 project, and it takes me 8 hours to complete, then that is $6.20 an hour. Under minimum wage, and not very good as far as time goes.
Also, if there is any sort of item or object that is needed for the render above and beyond what I have, then that cost is passed on to the commissioner. When it comes down to this I will give the commissioner choices based on what I can find, and pricing, and they can make the decision from there. The commissioner is not in charge of finding the item, because they do not know what my system needs or uses.
Another thing that seems to keep coming up is the question of erotic or fetish art. Here is my take on this:
ANYTHING, if you look at it hard enough, can be considered a fetish or erotic to a person or group of people. I've even heard of furniture porn. FURNITURE PORN! REALLY! Look it up! My particular comfort zone extends to nude pinup art, and nothing too over the top. Sex scenes that do not show anything but toplessness, do not offend me so much, but explicit ones that show more than that are, in my opinion, pornography, are outside my comfort zone, and I'm pretty sure are against DA's terms and conditions. A teacher of mine once said, "If a person wants you to do something that you are uncomfortable doing, don't say 'no', just make them pay through the nose for it." SO, pricing for any kind of image that I deem pornographic or am uncomfortable doing will start at $100 and will proceed to go up from there depending on the same criteria as other images. This is a non-negotiable starting price, so don't ask.
Rendered images can be delivered via stash or email.
Payment MUST be made via PayPal to an address that I will give when the commission is accepted. Payment must be made up front along with payment for accessories necessary for the commission.
Rendered images can be done in either Iray which is my new preferred method (for a real light feel) or 3Dlight (for a traditional 3D animation feel).
If you have questions, feel free to contact me by note with your commission ideas."
Lots of :hug:
Edit: Nowe the time that I started doing commissions back in 2012, and put up those original guidelines, some things have changed. First off, I acquired a partner in crime in the extremely talented @whisakedjak, so I have changed my prices to reflect ones that the both of us feel are more current with the times and fair for the amount of time that we put into our work. Second, I run sales quite often, and that makes it pretty easy for folks to pick up really good artwork on the cheap, so I don't see how that's a big issue for most folks, considering the quality and time that I put into the pieces I do. Third, I've never done points before, and have never planned to, so if you plan on paying with points, it's going to cost double, because to me, they are pretty much worthless.
