-THE COMMISSIONS ARE CLOSED FOR THE TIME BEING-
PLEASE USE THE COMMISSION PRICE CALCULATOR:

How to use the calculator example:
A "kiss animation" is usually: animation/320x240/preliminary sketch/2 characters/ no background/no extras/20 frames (2 seconds or 2 "main actions") = total 60 Euros

(Euros to USD -or other currencies- change every day/moment so try to convert it here: finance.yahoo.com/currency-con… )

The prices will be like this:
(These are for info only, to save you from complicated calculations use the calculator above)

IMAGE:
sizes: 320x240 =
(2.5 Euro a preliminary sketch or as I call them picassos XD)
(4.5 Euro a sketch -meaning no color but the lines are clear)
(7 Euro a flat colored picture)
example:
(12 Euro a colored picture)

800x600 =

the animations I usually do are "rotating" a character around XD and that doesn't take extra charge.
if you want a character to speak (like you have a recorded voice & want a good sync I'll try that 8D) add +1/10 of the basic price above.
if you want a walking/running cycle or a looping forever animation add +1/5 of the basic price.
(examples: )

------------------------------------------------------

HOW TO ASK FOR A COMMISSION:

Just send me a NOTE explaining what you want. By doing that you have agreed with everything this journal says.

I'll add you in a "WAITING LIST" and tell you when your turn will come. THEN you'll pay and AFTER THAT I'll start. Right now there's about 45 people in the waiting list (4-5 months wait).

Once you get the final zip file (by e-mail - usually the paypal one) you can still ask for any little edits without extra charge.

Once you are happy with it, I'll post it in deviantart. You can't ask for your your money back or any edits after that.

------------------------------------------------------

HOW TO PAY:

I accept PAYPAL ONLY

------------------------------------------------------

FILE I'LL SEND vs DEVIATION:

I'll send you the image in the size you request & without watermark in png format. BUT I'll upload until 1500x1125 in deviantart & with the usual watermark and jpg format.

I'll send you the animation in the size you request in avi format, gif and all the frames separately (png) & without watermarks (all inside a "zip" file - be sure to have unzipping programs installed on your computer).  BUT I'll upload it in a gif format and with watermarks.

------------------------------------------------------

FURTHER DETAILS:

I'LL DO: Any kind of style.

I WON'T DO: Mature things, Religious things and Symbols, Yaoi and Yuri (if they behave like simple friends it is acceptable) , Skeletons and any Death-related things, Injured badly and Bloody things, Any kind of Reptile (Dragons included) (Because someone asked, turtles are fine XD)...

SO-SO THINGS: I don't particularly like semi-animal characters (people with tales and kitty ears and such.. - I ESPECIALLY dislike horns tales and wings because they tend to have religious meanings - But I can't say I won't do things like this..And I actually like mermaids ^^"> )

I WOULD LIKE TO DO: Any kind of cute things, Romantic things, Things with a nice meaning or story behind

*****
You can ask for either a digital or a traditional picture but I'll only send a scanned version of the traditional (In one of the above sizes) and not originals.

One second  = 10 frames in animations = 1 "main action". My usual animations are 20 frames or 2 seconds long. A walk/run-cycle is usually 8 frames.

The "preliminary sketch" can also have colors. Most animations are "preliminary sketch" (Like: starca.deviantart.com/art/How-… )
The commission calculator doesn't seem to be working. Could you fix it? It was very useful for me to get an idea of the price of the commissions I was thinking of getting.
starcaProfessional Digital Artist
Yes, it doesn't work My brother has made it, he can fix it but hasn't gotten around to do that Anyway the commissions are closed.
For the waiting list do we pay and wait or just ask and wait to be co tasted when available?
Also have questions on pricing for an animation I had in mind, but don’t really understand the pricing would it be alright to note you?
starcaProfessional Digital Artist
Wait until your turn - then pay ^^ Yes, send me a note
Note sent. I’ll be sure to ask to be placed on the list if it seems around my budget
