So to celebrate Premium Membership Day on DA, I've decided that I'll begin offering commissions!
I am currently a freshman at The University of Dallas, majoring in art. I am offering these commissions in order to earn a little money to pay for my art supplies and books. Any extra money earned after that will go to my college fund for when I go study abroad in Rome next fall semester.
I'm also trying to save up to get a premium membership and I think I'm ready to work for it rather than resort to begging and asking for donations.
WHAT I'M DRAWING:
I'll draw a cartoon rendering of a portrait of you or anyone you wish. The portrait can be of a head or a bust. I do lineart, black and white, and full-color portraits.
For lineart or black and white images, I use traditional methods by sketching out my subject first and then inking it.
For color images, I do the same as above, but then color it on Photoshop. I do my best to keep my artwork as clean-cut as possible.
I don't usually do backgrounds, but I can make a very simple one (e.g. halo of light, soft glow, etc.) for an extra 80
or $1.00 USD
All finished pieces will be large, digital JPG files of 2025x3000 ppi dimentions. I can do other sizes too if you like. Just let me know what you'd like.
Below are some samples of my cartooning styles. I'm still working to expand my drawing styles, so if there's something specific you'd like, please let me know and I'll do what I can to accomidate your request:
Once you have fully paid for your commissioned artwork after I have delivered it to you, you will own all rights to the image and you will be able to do whatever you like with the image. All that I ask is that my signature remain on the commissioned image and that you permit me to upload it into my gallery of commissions so that I may use it as a sample of the kind of work I do.
I reserve the right to turn down commissions for any reason. I do not draw portraits that include obscene, errotic, suggestive or occult imagery, nor do I draw characters who are dressed suggestively, wearing tattoos or body piercings other than earrings. If your original image includes any of the preceeding content, I can re-draw the portrait without the suggestive clothing/tattoos/body piercings, etc.
Also, please remember that I am a college student and that I my first duty is to my school work. I can complete lineart and black and white portraits within 2 days of commission; color portraits can take up to a week to complete as they require more work.
In exchange for my work, FOR THE FIRST 10 PEOPLE who request a commission, I will ask for 400
per image or $5.00 USD. After that, I will ask for 600
per image or $7.50 USD. For monetary payments, I accept Paypal.
I require a partial payment upfront (at least half of the full commission price) and then the other half upon my delivery of the commission. I only do this so as to maintain honesty and trust on both ends of the commissioner and the artist. You can request a commission ONLY IF you're serious about paying me for my work. If neither of us are able to uphold our end of the contract before the completion of the commission, your money or points will be refunded.
If you're interested in a commission, please note me. I look forward to hearing from you!
