Holy cats...I wasn’t sure what kind of response I’d get, but I definitely got one o.O
Thanks so much for the inquiries! I need to close commissions while I sort through the messages I’ve gotten before things get too kooky
I’ll update again soon. Thanks a million!
Hi there, art-watchers!
After several years of slinging packages, I recently parted ways with my job as a warehouse grunt. It wasn’t a terrible job, and I sure will miss the paycheck, but I’d had several minor injuries in the past year and a half from working there, and after awhile I got rather tired of malingering while all the signs to move on kept piling up. So I turned in my gear, shook some hands, said my goodbyes, and left the Society of People Stacking Things on top of Other Things. It was time.
Now, if you’ve ever read a blog or journal from an artist that begins that way, you know where this is going, so let’s get into it!
While I figure out where to go from here—apart from continuing to work on Bomango, that is—I’m looking to take on some commission work! So here’s a little primer for you if you’re interested:
CONTACT:For commission inquiries, shoot me an email at
(To anyone who’s sent me a note on dA recently: I fell WAY behind on keeping up with my extremely disorganized inbox there. Consequently, I’ve purged my dA note inbox to start fresh. Please accept my sincerest apologies if you’ve sent me a note and haven’t gotten a response. I assure you it isn’t personal!)CONTENT:
I’ll consider any requests I get, but reserve the right to turn down anything I judge to be illicit or personally objectionable (you know, stuff like rape, bestiality, pedophilia, that kinda thing? That’ll be a “no”, if that helps to save some time).
I’ll also only post your commission art with mutual consent to do so (you can choose to keep it private or anonymous if that’s your preference).
I tend to keep my gallery more or less PG-13, so if you have a commission that might be of a more “mature” nature, please don’t take offense if I don’t feature it here. (Hi, Grandma!)Options and Pricing:
Character art is my forte, but you can commission whatever you like. My prices are a flat rate (see below) adjusted for flat or shaded/highlighted detail depending on the commission. See what fits your idea best!Sketch Art:
Digital Line art:
Colored Art with Background:
I’ve found that most people tend to commission me for character art, and usually 1-2 characters. I don’t typically double my rates for multiple character pieces, but for 2 or more characters, the markup is normally about 25-50% per character (again, based on estimated time and complexity)
If all those details and numbers seems confusing or prohibitive, don't be afraid to ask me questions or ask for some clarification. I'm still figuring out the best way for me to do commissions fairly and reliably for both myself and folks who are interested in commissioning me, so I'm always open to input!
Since I haven’t opened for commissions for quite awhile, I’m not sure what to expect as far as demand. For starters, I’ll be opening 4 slots
at a time, and see how things go from there
