Commissions Price Guide

[[ Taken from prior commission guide: Commission Guideline as of 04.29.2013 ]]


Hello everyone! This guide is used for my personal reference & for inquiries for all interested folks who wish to commission from me.

Why a commission price guide? – The reason behind this guide as a personal reference has been a long time coming. Due to folks who have requested in the past before & not being prepared, I finally have a price guide line down not only for my preference but also be prepared to discuss any & all inquiries someone may ask later down the line. After-all folks who have asked & paid in some way, shape, or form in the past like & support my artwork have left me humbled & grateful, for that sentiment, I am very thankful.



                These are my personal preferences that may answer any inquiries of how I prefer to handle things in terms of commission work.


    1.       Interested, send me a note or msg on this social media account [all accts are at least checked once a day] or a direct e-mail @ . Please make sure the title of the e-mail/note/message indicates you wish to commission me.

    2.       All drawings specifications will be asked – so there will be back & forth e-mails asking a lot of questions about your commission specifications, after-all they are all done the way you want them to be done ~ so negotiations may be long.

    3.       Multiple artworks can be requested.

    4.       Final works are done & signed off by me. Client commissions will be their property; in return, both parties are in agreement all client requested commissions will be used as part of my personal art portfolio.

    5.       All commissions are scanned or digital & sent via e-mail [or social media site] & eventually showcased as examples of my artwork on social media sites. All original artwork will be kept with me. Discussions of this option may change on a case by case basis.

    6.       Clients may request for their commissions to be withheld from being showcased on any of my social medias – just please make sure to address this if you wish to withheld your commission [& a reason why].

    7.       All digital commissions have the following:

    a.       All WIP work is done on a smaller DPI/Res scale.

    b.       All final work DPI/Res scale is set to be made as a print.

    8.       Payment goes as follows: half before WIP [this will include line art progress] – 2nd half just before completion.

    9.       Payments are all done through paypal only so there will be a paypal fee for each transaction.

    10.    Negotiation from what is stated from the guideline is always possible as long as its reasonable.

    11.    All prices may change during time. (Such as special price runs & spots)

    12.    Artwork commission requests will be done in the order as I see fit deemed important & need to be done a.s.a.p. (Paid Commission always done before Point Commissions)

    13.    Commission may be subjected to delay due to real life reasons.

    14.    I have every right to change the FAQs as needed.
