commissions are currently closed until further notice.

prices:
$20 - sketch (per character)
$50 - full color (per character)

add:
$20 - sketched bg
$50 - colored bg
$150 - fully rendered bg

you can be as detailed or as vague as you want in your commission request. i can work with lots of references or completely from my imagination. it's up to you.

if you want your commission to be private, please mention it. there is no extra charge.

i prefer paypal for payments, but if you can't pay in this method i'm sure we can work something out.

Please PM me or email me at rtil@thebackalleys.com with your commission ideas, questions, or anything commission related. thanks everyone! :D

Does the recent commission you did for the KS Facebook group mean that commissions are back up, or was that just a special occasion?

It looks like all the commission reward pledges are all taken - is there any other way at the moment to possibly purchase one?

Hey!

Is there any chance in the future you would consider re-opening your commissions back up? I've been a huge fan for 4 years now and would love to see a commission get drawn. You're pretty much my favorite artist, so it would truly be incredible if you decided to take 'em again!

If I were to get on that list, would  I have to pay to be on that wait list itself or when you're about to work on mine?

ok. keep in mind if you want a commission by that time though you still have to file a request with me now for a place in queue, otherwise people will get ahead of you and you'll have to wait even longer. you can send details via PM

Hi rtil! It *looks* like you have $20 coloured sketch commissions open, but I'm not sure? Your $10 toned sketches are nice too, but if possible I'd love to know if you're open to doing coloured sketches at the moment. I'm collecting illustrations for an art book to kind of act as a free companion for a novel I'm publishing fairly soon (within the first quarter of the year), and I would really love to commission you if you're available. :D

I know you're kind of in a place where you may not feel like doing stuff, though, so it's cool if you're not open - you're one of my favourite artists though, so I thought it wouldn't hurt to ask~ XD;

rtil Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2015  Professional General Artist
yes my colored sketch commission is available. there are about a dozen lined up right now, so if you'd like one you can claim a spot in line. they don't take me very long to do.

I have been meaning to commission you for well over a year now, and situation after bloody situation has been perpetually putting it on hold for me. At some point, I more or less left DA, which didn't help the fact, but NOW... I have remembered one of my favourite artists, so I'll be keeping an eye out for when commissions are available again, so that I might ask for one. But in the meantime, I must know whether or not you are able or willing to use written descriptions of a character as reference.

I look forward to it. One more question. Would it be possible to do a sketch "bundle" commission? As in several sketches of a character in a variety of poses? Obviously, it would cost more,and that would be fine. I'm just wondering if that would count as multiple commissions or one.
Reply
:iconrtil:
rtil Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2013  Professional General Artist
yes you can. if it's same character, i'd charge less than if it were a different character every time, since i can usually draw the same character faster if i'm doing it a lot. :)

Do you ever take on commissions for short animations about the length of The Lighthouse Girl? I know it would be a hell of a lot more than still prices but if you could flick me a note I would greatly appreciate it, love your work!

TLG was short but it took us 8 months to create. something of that level of detail would be very expensive to commission..
