Custom + Commission Prices 2019 by Solar-Paragon Custom + Commission Prices 2019 by Solar-Paragon
☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆

April 17th 2019 Update - Updated prices and formatting. Removed some listings and added others instead! I'll be more tentative with who I choose to take as a commissioner as I begin switching to a slotted queue instead of a rolling queue. I'll likely begin opening commission slots via journal instead of taking them at any time, though for now nothing will change.

☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆
__________________________________________________________

Jan 4th 2018 Update - Using a new format to make it more easily accessible to those with smaller screens. Some prices adjustments were made; for those who have already contacted me, don't worry, you'll be priced using my previous sheet's rates! 'v'

June 13th 2017 Update - Fixed some minor spelling and pricing errors. As always, these are just general estimates, if you'd like an accurate quote, just send me a note with your character information! '7'

☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆

More examples will be added to the commission sheet over time.

New prices, eh? *squints at the prices* Looks like I'll have to save up again but hey, I really enjoy your work!

Also what do you mean by being more tentative on whom you're going to take as a commissioner?

I see my snek boi up there. He's still the same, never changed him since his adopt except gave him a human form.

Howdy Tiger, nice to see you! '7'

The tentative thing is just a really minor notice saying that I'll be slightly pickier on who I select for commissions; drawing a character that already exists is harder than creating a character via custom/mystery, so if I feel someone's character would be more difficult than usual, I may decline the order. [Usually this won't be a problem; I've only ever declined three people in the seven years I've been doing commissions.]

However, people I've worked with before, or orders on characters I've helped design, get a fair discount when ordering from me. If you'd ever like a quote for an idea you have, feel free to note me! '7'

I hope that answers your questions! 'v'

Hi Tiger! It would vary depending on the order, but, for user I've worked extensively with in the past, or my own designs, I tend to cut the prices down to last year's pricing.
Hope that answers your question for now! '7'

Okay so one really quick question i just thought of. Is it possible to fill out the order form just to get a quote? Also is it possible to get a custom character one day then later come back for another mystery custom accept it would be the creature form of the first custom? Okay so that was two questions but um yeah.

Solar-Paragon Featured By Owner Apr 19, 2019  Professional Digital Artist
Hey Dova!

Let's see if I can answer these for you;

1. Correct! My quotes are given out without expecting immediate payment; after-all, many of my commissioners need to save up or budget their order, so it's no biggy! If you'd just like a quote, so you know how much to save up, I can do that!

2. That shouldn't be a problem! Though, do keep in mind that mystery keyword designs don't have any WiPs, so ordering a feral form for a pre-existing character through a mystery design is a one-shot thing. It may be best if you ordered the feral form as a regular commission, even if the price is a bit higher, if you want to have fine control over how the feral form looks. [Of course, if you order the feral form as a mystery design, I'll always do my absolute best to deliver a design you enjoy.]

If you have any more questions, please don't hesitate to ask!

Ah okies i was concerned that it was only allowed for people who planned to buy right away. I will be sending in mine then so can work on saving up.

Hmmmm ill have to consider what i do then. Cause im not to sure what i for the feral form. I suppose i should wait to see how the character comes out then i will be able to maybe gauge weather i have any ideas or if i want you to just take it away and see what happens.

Thank you so much for answering. If i have any more questions i will be sure to ask. x3

I am curious about the copyright of the weapon designs. 

I read your ToS and I know you retain full rights to the art and we may not use it comercially. But what about the weapon design? Can it be used in commercial media such as comics and videogames, or is it only for personal use as well. 
Reply
:iconsolar-paragon:
Solar-Paragon Featured By Owner Mar 8, 2019  Professional Digital Artist
Hello Stardust!
For single-person companies or entities [like, a single artist who does comics], they're free to use the design concepts [character or weapon] I make for them in their commercial projects.
All that I ask is for a small acknowledgement somewhere in the footnote of the media the design is used in. [If a comic book, for example, I'd ask for the line "[Weapon Name] initially design by Solar-Paragon" or something similar.]

The art itself that I create [the literal .png/.jpg image] isn't available for commercial use, but if the artist redraws the design in their own art style then the above statement is applicable.

[Companies/Entities larger than a single artist who want to use a design for commercial purposes I deal with in a different manner.]

I hope that answers your question! I'm a bit drowsy so please forgive me if the sentence structure is rough. If there's anything else I can do, just let me know! '7'

I have an existing character, but there's details that I'm not sure if you can interpret them well. If you can do them, there's possibly going to be an extra fee charged?

Also there's a LOT of information for this character so it's probably going to be a hefty commission

It would depend wholly on the details involved. [Off the top of my head, things like alternate forms or particular mutations / details are things I can illustrate, if that's similar to what you're referring to!]

If you'd like to know for sure, please feel free to send me all the information you have! No worries if it's a lot of text, the more I know, the better I'll be able to help you out! '7'

Hi! I have a question about the copyright for custom designs. I read your terms of service and I understand that commissioner isn't buying the copyright to the design. Does this mean if I got a design from you and use it for a comic or a story you have the right to take the character away if you don't like how the character is used? 
Reply
:iconsolar-paragon:
Solar-Paragon Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2019  Professional Digital Artist
Hi Glory, thank you for asking!
I hope this answers you; if I've forgotten to cover anything, please let me know!:

–My TOS is slightly different from that of other artists. I draw a distinction between Artwork [.PNG/.JPG/.X file] and Design [idea of the character].

–I retain copyright to the Artwork, meaning the digital file that I create. I relinquish most rights to the Design itself to the commissioner.

–I do not EVER withdraw the right for a user to draw their own Design. The only single instance where I would consider 'taking back' a Design is a scam case where the commissioner failed to actually pay for the custom Design in the first place. Once a commission is paid for in ful, I consider the commissioner the new 'owner' of the Design.

–If I create a Design for someone, the user is free to use the character for any non-commercial purpose. If the character's Design is used in a printed operation [such as a comic made by an individual artist intended to be sold widely], I request I be credited in the acknowledgements of the piece as the initial designer, but I do not require compensation in any form beyond that.

–I do not require users to credit me for the Design I make them when they draw their Design, only the Artwork of the Design. If you repost my Artwork, I ask for proper credit in the description. If you draw the Design yourself, I do not require credit.

–While I'll never take back a commissioner's right to draw their own Design, if the situation calls for it I may request the user refrain from reposting my own Artwork of the Design if it's being misused. [This is very situational and I had to do this only once in the decade I've been selling my art. 99.99% of my commissioners have freedom to display my Artwork on their own sites, with proper credit. ] The user still keeps the Design in this rare case, they just have to draw it themselves and can't repost my Artwork.

I hope this makes sense to you!
If you have any other questions, please let me know!
The super-short version is: If someone decides to turn the concept I create for them into something I find personally disagreeable, I'm not gonna judge. It's not my right to filter the thoughts and ideas of other artists, and doing-so would defeat the purpose of my role of a concept artist who seeks to challenge my commissioners with unique ideas for them to expand upon and use as they choose to. Note that this viewpoint isn't shared with a lot of artists on this website, which is why I seek to be different by removing limitations on what my commissioners can/can't do with a design. I know, for me, I'd feel very uncomfortable buying from a user who can take the design back at any time, so I don't want to do that to others.

If you have any other question, please let me know! '7'

Alright! I'd love to make a toon ref of her! '7'
Just a fewww more quick questions:

-Would you like her markings spot-for-spot accurate, or would you like them slightly simplified for use in fursuit construction to minimize suit cost?

–Is she symmetrical [other than a spot here or there, and her eyes]?

–What color are the inside of her ears?

-And inside of her ears are the same as her tongue - green :D

Hello, I'm not sure if you'll see this, but I'm a recent watcher, and I do have to say your art and designs are absolutely incredible... May I ask how much something like this [Design][Custom] Basia The Laguz by Solar-Paragon   would be in points, exactly? (I've kinda looked through previous comments here and saw you also take points as payment, of course, I dunno if you still do or not :'D). I eagerly await your response~

:iconsolar-paragon:
Solar-Paragon Featured By Owner Nov 23, 2018  Professional Digital Artist
Howdy Kuroneko! You're correct, I do still take points! '7'
As a very /rough/ estimate, the price would be similar to this using my current style:
–1 Human Frontal Fullbody - $55.00 USD
–1 Frontal Outfit - Medium - $20.00 USD
–1 Sideview Feral - Medium Difficulty - $45.00 USD
All references include formatting/palette/eye miniview/wing miniview [if applicable]/ small trinkets at no charge.
$1.00 USD = 100:points:
Total: 12,000 :points:

If you'd like a wholly accurate quote, please feel free to send me your character's information!

If this is out of your budget, you can also ask the reference to be completed as a colored sketch, rather than a refined piece. The result is a functional reference, but the artwork is semi-rough due to the sketch lines. As an example, a sketch ref is like these: [Adopt] [SOLD] [Flatsale] $65 Slipstream Dragon by Solar-Paragon [COM] [Sketch Ref] Luis Loera by Solar-Paragon
It's a cheaper option, but not quite as pretty.
I hope that answers your question! '7'
