Basic Commission Process: Step 1: Decide what kind of a commission you want. The easiest way to determine what style you desire and the cost is to look at the samples below. The samples are not limited to what I can do, but they'll give you a rough idea. Subjects include, but are not necessarily limited to:  Existing characters, original characters (yours or my own), comics, fantasy, storyboards, bromance, friendship, still-life, portraits (human, animal, anthro, other) , photo-restoration /manipulation. Not sure I can or will do it? Don't hesitate to ask!

I WON'T do:  Pornography, explicitly Yaoi/Yuri/bi-relationships, anything too sexually charged or violent (If you're not sure, discuss your ideas with me, and I'll tell you where the line is.)


Step 2: Discussion of concept and commission price.  This may be done in notes through Deviant Art, by email, or other method of private messaging (I use the first two the most, but whatever you're most comfortable with. ) Once the basic concept is agreed upon, I will give you an initial price estimate. Note: I've had to re-tool some of my prices, which will be reflected below in the sample list. Individual prices will vary, but the samples will give you a rough idea. (These sample prices do not affect past commissions where a price has already been discussed and fixed upon) . 


Step 3: Concept Sketches. I will send preliminary sketches via email to you, at which time you will pay half the commission price in advance. Payment may be sent via Paypal or regular mail. I will give you my information privately at that time. Any change in price will also be finalized then, since preliminary concept work helps me to better gauge the time and effort that will go into the finished product. However, the initial estimate and final price will probably not vary too much, if at all, so don't worry!


Step 4: Final Draft. Once I have the final draft completed I will send you a low-resolution file via email so you can approve it, or request changes. If your changes are minor, or the result of a fault on my part, there is no extra charge. However, major revisions will otherwise cost extra. 


Step 5: Payment and Finished Product. Once the commission is completed to everyone's satisfaction, you will send the other half of the payment. Once I have been paid in full, I will send you the high-resolution file via email, as well as an invoice. Payment in installments is an option and can be discussed on a commission-by-commission basis. Note: A physical copy of your commission can be printed and framed and sent to you, but you must cover the cost, as well as shipping and handling. Let me know if this is something you want and we can discuss the details.

Commission slots for July are now open! However, please note that I have changed my prices. You can go here to get a rough overview. In addition, I will no longer be doing comics with more than 5 panels at one time. For questions, or to secure a commission slot, please send me a private message. Otherwise I might miss something you want me to see right away. Anyway, to my fellow 'Muricans, have a Happy (and safe) 4th of July!

Commission slots are closed until July. They filled up before I could even open them, so I won't be taking any more until then. I'll be opening my slots back up in July, so please wait until then to ask for one. Thanks to everyone for your support! Also, a note about future commissions: I will not be taking any comic commissions longer than 5 panels per commission slot. I've developed carpal-tunnel syndrome, so I have to be careful how much work I'm doing each day, and those long comic commissions have rather done me in. If you already have a commission set up with me neither of these changes will affect you this time around, so don't panic! Also, feel free to ask any questions by PMing me.

WILDFIRES

0 min read
There are several massive wildfires currently going on in my area, and though I am safe at the moment I may have to evacuate at any time. I don't expect to have to do so, this is just in case (because the Santa Ana winds have decided to rear their unwanted heads. ) Those of you waiting on commissions: if you suddenly don't hear from me it means I've had to get to a safe place. I'll be in contact as soon as I can.

Hey sapphiregamgee and do you have times to do the roleplays with me?

I really don't. Sorry.

Sapphiregamgee its oh ok.

I've had to deal with him before, so I just block him whenever he resurfaces. Thank you for the warning, though. I might have been a new victim smh.

Hey sapphiregamgee.
