1. EXAMPLES AND PRICES
All the following prices are rough estimates. Be aware that the prices may increase depending on what you‘re asking for - detail, time scale, difficulty, etc. Exchange rates and PayPal fees (around 5% for Britain and the USA) have been considered as well. Since I live in Europe, I determined the prices according to € (EUR). All of the prices are listed in Euro - € (EUR), British Pounds - £ (GBP) and American Dollars - $ (USD).
I. Portrait 158 € / 115 £/ 170 $
Full colour (unless otherwise preferred), portrait or square layout, semi-realistic style, simple background. Headshot format only. Straightforward portraits of people and characters. II. Bust / Waist up - 210 € / 151 £ / 227 $
Full colour (unless otherwise preferred), headshot or waist up; simple or abstracted background; any layout (landscape, portrait, or square); additional detailing. III. Full Body / Scene - 368 € / 265 £ / 396 $
This includes all portrait commissions that involve more complex background elements and/or a high level of detailing. Any layout; full color, waist-up/ full-body, multiple characters/interactions, etc. 2. TERMS OF AGREEMENT
I reserve the right to decline any commission request without question.
I reserve the right to only accept a certain amount of commissions at once.
I reserve the right to adjust the pricing on a request before I start the commission, depending on difficulty, time scale etc.
You are free to make personal use of your commissioned piece. However, you may NOT claim the piece as your own.
I reserve the rights to the artwork and you may not make money from it (by selling prints etc.)
I reserve the right to display a commissioned piece on my deviantART gallery and portfolio. If the piece is an original character of yours etc, then all credit will be given to you accordingly.
I reserve the right to draw up a legal contract to be signed by the client and the artist in order to specify the type of commission, deadline and payment and to ensure that the obligations are met.3. HOW IT WORKS
You describe what kind of image you have in mind. Give me as much information as possible. Give me the name of your character, age, image references, personality traits, interesting facts, tattoos, earrings, clothing, body type, facial expression, pose ANYTHING that is relevant. Colours for hair, clothing, eyes, or any other important features. A few words on the mood and colour scheme can be helpful as well. I need as much info as possible to work from, to make sure you like the end result. Then, we agree on a price that is appropriate for the complexity and the effort that goes with it. (→ 1. Examples and prices)
You will then be given 2 to 5 rough thumbnails to determine the general look of the artwork. The thumbnail you pick will become a line sketch to show off more details and design elements. In case there are some things that you don‘t like about the sketch I will make changes and send you the revised version. The number of revisions will be specified in the contract. After you approve the sketch, you send me the payment. (→ 4. Payment) Once I receive the payment I will continue to update you on the progress of the piece. You will receive a high quality digital file
(300 dpi) with the finished artwork. After receiving the final piece there is NO option to refund. Only if for some reason I‘m NOT able to finish your commission, you will have complete refund.4. PAYMENT:
For private commissions, I accept payment ONLY via PayPal. You will be sent an invoice with the details.5. CONTACT:
