Commissions would be priced as follows:
(A4/letter size or similar, 300-400 DPI for digital images)

1 character, no color, no background (pencil, ink, or photoshop sketch): $15
additional characters/poses: +$10/each
simple background: +$5
complex background: +$10 (extra may be charged if its just downright outrageous.)

so,
So it begins by taintedsilence
taintedsilence.deviantart.com/… (So It Begins) = $15

CDS 21 by taintedsilence
taintedsilence.deviantart.com/… (CDS 21) = $25

CDS 21 - updated by taintedsilence
taintedsilence.deviantart.com/… (cds 21 + 2 extra poses) = $45

The Fox and the Crow - lineart by taintedsilence
taintedsilence.deviantart.com/… (the fox and the crow, lineart) = $35

1 character, color, no/simple background (digital, marker, or colored pencil):  $30
additional characters/poses:  +$20/each
complex background: +$20

So,
70K hits by taintedsilence
taintedsilence.deviantart.com/… (70K hit kiriban, marker) = $30

angry eyes by taintedsilence
taintedsilence.deviantart.com/… (Angry Eyes, photoshop) = $30

CDS 14 + 15 by taintedsilence
taintedsilence.deviantart.com/… (CDS 14-15, painter X) = $50

The Fox and the Crow by taintedsilence
taintedsilence.deviantart.com/… (The fox and the crow colored, photoshop and painter) = $70


Extra options:
larger than 8.5x11/A4 size: we'll discuss this if you want it.  Expect about $10-15 more, depending on how big you want it.

Still Reaching by taintedsilence
all painted: again, to be discussed, as this takes me a lot longer (and can be far more frustrating than) my regular style.

You get thumbnails now, cause for some reason I have a membership.  Neat.

Rules:
1) No internal organs please.  I'm squeemish and they make me vomit, plus I have to draw too many of them at work.  Blood is okay, though.
2) No sex.  I don't want to draw it, and I won't.
3) yaoi/yuri/pda = case by case basis.  if its too extreme, you can either tone it down, or I'll have to pass.  Sorry.
4) please provide a reference with all requests (either a description or an image).  
5) I have to deal with annoying enough people at work, so I do have the right to refuse your commission if you're a jerk.  But I like to be nice to people who are nice to me.  

Even if you're not interested in a commission, let me know if these prices seem reasonable to you.  The colored characters seem like a total steal.

haha, I suppose I could do some international commissions . . . sorry, I'm one of those "stupid americans" that sometimes forgets people live outside of the US.

Oh I wish I could buy a commission. T-T I really really do.

bwahahaha! Maybe we will have to do a trade instead!

I know you were looking for a mac, did you know the mac store sells refurbished computers? That might be the way to go.
IWUSkittles's avatar
Actually, I bought a refurbished mac for about $500 cheaper than a new one.

And an Art trade? I would be nervous about that. lol

One thing you don't mention is sizes, is that something that would play a role in your pricing scale?
taintedsilence's avatar

I think all sizes are going to be pretty close to 8.5 x 11, unless otherwise requested, then I guess they'll be extra. Or less, if a small sketch is requested.

Hrm, maybe I need to re-do this.

If I can get some cash together I'll definitely spring for a couple of commissions, Heidi. I wish you lots of good luck. And glad to know you've been feeling better.

haha sorry I haven't been on recently, its been pretty crazy.

It's alright. I understand that not everyone has the same insane amount of free time that I do. Literally. This much free time is enough to drive a person insane.

*crosses fingers*

I need to find some other good sites to advertise on though.

And did you check out my blog with the 'what I hate about work' bit? So the next time I complain about my job, just remember, m.c. esher houses, and lump 'durrrrrr' people.
