BASIC INFO


All prices listed are rough estimates. Depending on detail and how difficult I anticipate the artwork being to complete the price may go up or down slightly. Things like headshots will naturally be cheaper than fullbodies. Listed prices are generally for fullbodies. Prices and other content on this journal are subject to change without notice. If you have already commissioned a piece, the price will not change while it is being fulfilled.

By default, payment will be via Paypal (prices are listed in USD), but points at a $1=100 points ratio. Additional characters will add approximately 50-80% of the base price. For example, if a character costs $10, an additional one can cost an additional $5-8, give or take depending on complexity, for a total of $15-18, respectively. I usually like to work with whole numbers when pricing. Only new clients and artworks commissioned after the change are subject to updated pricing.

Comment, send me a note, or email me at ashhourglass@gmail.com if you have any questions or would like a quote!




Sculpture

Estimated $100-$250

My recent specialty--as well as what I feel the most comfortable with--are relatively simple, cartoony characters, such as Wyngro.

I'll use wyngro as an example. Simple, easy wynglings I'm confident in sculpting can be $100-$150. Adults--especially ones with more complicated details and designs--could go up to $200-250 or more. Posing can also add onto the price. A simple standing or sitting pose will be less than a dynamic pose requiring a base for balance. Fur/hair, skinny/delicate pieces, feathers, and tiny details can likewise add onto the price, since they're more difficult and time-consuming, as well as more concerning to ship safely. Sculptures are the most varying, so please contact me for a quote! And of course--unless you just want pictures of the completed piece--I'll also need your address for shipping.

Wyngro Animated YCH

Estimated $40-70

Your wyngling drawn in an 11 frame run cycle! Base price of $40, plus additional charges for complexity/major changes of base.

Sketches

$10-25
Messy, and quick. Are allowed to be colored by the client (see rules/guidelines).

Flat Color

Estimated $10-50
Simple, easy-to-draw characters, such as wyngro, ponies, some dragons, etc. Price range depends on difficulty, and if you desire additional things such as colored linework or shading.

Characters
$10-30
A drawing or two of your character! Usually a transparent background, with no or minimal shading. Price depends on complexity.

New  Reference Sheets New 
$30-50+
A page for your character, especially wyngrew! Typically done in a way that complies with wyngro breeding ref sheet requirements with simple backgrounds. Typically, one fullbody to show off personality, then a front/back to show off markings. Other elements such as expressions, details, accessories, etc. available upon request.

RULES AND GUIDELINES

In order to make this go easy, I will need to know the following things:

Character(s) - Clear references ONLY. I will NOT draw without a good visual reference! Multiple images appreciated, but not always required.
Style - Such as sculpture, sketch, flat colors, faux watercolor, colored lineart, etc., as well as cartoony or semi-realistic, though I may shift from one to the other depending on how much detail is in the character you give me.
Pose - You could allow me artistic freedom, or you could request a specific pose. I'm not super good with crazy action poses, so this may be up for discussion. Facial expressions may also be requested.
Amount - As in headshot, down to waist, full body, artist choice, etc.
Screenname - What username(s) on which site(s) I should contact you through (on top of email, if you go that route) so that I can tag and link to your profile when the artwork is completed.

The process generally goes like this: You send me this form and any other information you think will help, I'll send you a quote, and if you would still like to commission, we figure out payment details (Paypal, points, etc.) and I'll send you an invoice where applicable. Once paid, I will begin the artwork.



Things I WILL draw:

- Humans
- Some anthro and quad (If I feel confident in drawing the anatomy)
- Dragons
- Ponies
- Any Pairings (hetero, homo, anything.)
- Gore/violence (I'm not the best at drawing blood and gore, just a heads up)

Things I WON'T draw:

- NSFW/nudity/fetish. Anything sexual in nature.
- Things with too many minute details. I love details, but I will let you know if it's too much for me to handle. I know my limits.
- I'm not good at drawing some kinds of animals. Though I WILL do anthros/quad, not all species are within my ability range, and I will let you know if I feel confident or not with what you give me.
- Very unlikely to get me to draw a background. I may spontaneously do one, but I'm not confident at them enough to charge money for them yet.


I retain the right to turn down any commission without explanation. I also retain the right to cancel a commission myself due to poor communication, rude/inappropriate behavior, etc. I will post a finished low-res, watermarked version on my sites (unless otherwise requested, a small fee may be involved), but client will receive the full-res unwatermarked version. If you want me to delay posting the artwork for time-sensitive reasons (like gift art), let me know. I retain all rights to the commissioned piece, but rights can be negotiated for a price.

Payment must be paid in full before I begin. Refunds can be issued depending on how far done I am. For example, if I haven't started, you get a full refund. If I've done a little bit, you can get about 80%; if I'm halfway done, about 50%; mostly done, 20%; etc. If I have already finished you don't get your money back. You also don't receive the product if you request a refund.

You are welcome to request progress shots at any time however! If possible, I will also try post here how far into the commission I am. In certain cases, I may stream the drawing for the best communication possible on the sketch.

I will not promise any specific timeline. Being an artist is not my primary job, and I have life to attend to outside of this. Naturally, simpler sketches can be done a lot faster than a shaded full-body or an animation, but I will finish as quickly as life permits me (usually within a week or two).

Changes to the image early on do not cost extra (to a certain degree), but if you want big changes in the later stages, especially after approving sketch/lineart, there will be a fee.

Clients may print out the piece, resize or crop it for icon/wallpaper use, or for other graphics as long as the piece itself is not altered, and credit is given where appropriate. Client is not permitted to use it in any commercial way. Client may not resell or redistribute the file, the image, or the rights to the image. The client is allowed to color a sketch or lineart and upload it to their own site, but credit must be given. Client may not enter the image into contests or in any other way that claims the image to be by them.
