PLEASE USE THE COMMISSION PRICE CALCULATOR:

windystar.awardspace.com/calcu…


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: Commission: Amaya by starca
(12 Euro a colored picture)
          
800x600 =
(4.5 Euro a preliminary sketch or as I call them picassos XD)
example: Deep Blue by starca (yes, they can have color)
(7 Euro a sketch -meaning no color but the lines are clear)
example: Commission for VanMak by starca
(15 Euro a flat colored picture)
example: Commission: Sammira by starca
(22 Euro a colored picture)
example: Commission: Daniel Blackburn by starca
      
1500x1125 =
(14 Euro a preliminary sketch or as I call them picassos XD)
(22 Euro a sketch -meaning no color but the lines are clear)
(45 Euro a flat colored picture)
(70 Euro a colored picture)
      
3000x2250 =
(22 Euro a preliminary sketch or as I call them picassos XD)
(34 Euro a sketch -meaning no color but the lines are clear)
(80 Euro a flat colored picture)
(112 Euro a colored picture)

(These are for 1 character and no background.)
for couples add +1/5 of the above price.
for additional characters add +1/10 of the above price.

for simple background (one color or pattern) add +1/20 of the above price
(BG examples: Commission: Kiba and Kuriko by starca Commission: Trunks and Makoto by starca Commission: Lee and Tokiko by starca )
for complicated background,  add +1/10  (nature) to +1/5 (buildings :'D) of the above price
(BG examples: Commission: Kakashi and Shirahime by starca Commission: Helios, Sunna, Sonya, Akemi and Taiyou by starca Commission: Furikeimaru and Chisei by starca )


ANIMATION: (for 1 frame) Frames are usually counted as 10 for each "action" (kiss animations usually have 2 "actions" so they have 20 frames)
sizes: 320x240 =
(2.5 Euro a preliminary sketch or as I call them picassos XD)
examples: 30-frame animation prize by starca Sailor Saturn Transformation by starca   Commission: Kiba and Kuriko 2 by starca (yes, they can have color)
(3 Euro a sketch -meaning no color but the lines are clear)
(4.5 Euro a flat colored picture)
          
800x600 =

(7.5 Euro a flat colored picture)
example: Commission: Shannon by starca

(These are for 1 character and no background.)
for couples add +1/5 of the above price.
for additional characters add +1/10 of the above price.

for simple background (one color or pattern) add +1/20 of the above price
(BG examples: Commission: Rei and Sharlin by starca Commission: Kanna and Wandii by starca )
for complicated background (nature, buildings :'D) add +1/5 of the above price
(BG examples: Request: Nico and Bijou by starca Commission: Rei and Sharlin 3 by starca )

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: Commission: Rei and Sharlin by starca Commission: Rei and Sharlin 3 by starca Commission: Chantal by starca )

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

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-… )

You say here that you will not do semi-animals, but will you do full animals or something like a dragon?

starca Featured By Owner Jan 30, 2018  Professional Digital Artist
Depends on the dragon. But usually dragons are in the "no-no" group X'D While the semi-animals are in the "so-so" group & I might do them more easily.

I feel like an idiot asking this but I used your calculator

for animation
what can you do with something that is 320 x240, preliminary stretch, 1 character,no background, rotation, 6 frame?(is that even a possible thing?) 

"7.5 Euro a flat colored picture) " are the prices here different from the calculator?
Reply
:iconstarca:
starca Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2017  Professional Digital Artist
The prices are per frame :) That 7.5 gets multiplied with the frames.

As for the one that you calculated (the 15 Euros total one), that can be a small action, and kinda slow. Like this one (which is only 5 frames) but with one character: Commission kiss animation: Priest Seto and Kisara by starca (it can be a little jump, a gesture...Think of things that could be done in one second)
