Commissions

Sometimes, you just want some art that represents you. This is the page where you figure out how to get that done~

 

The Process

  1. You send me an email with “Commission” somewhere in the subject & all relevant information to get going.
    • How many people, Chibi/Bust/Full Body, B&W/Simple/Full Color, References, Due Date, and if you want, where you’d like it posted to (anything I draw will go into my portfolio, but if you want to put it somewhere specific, tell me)
    • Please include whether you would like to print the image. I work in on-screen resolution (72dpi), which isn’t great for printing. If you want something printed, I need to work at 300dpi.
  2. I respond with a final quote. You have the option then to tell me to go ahead or back out.
  3. I sketch a base sketch, ask you for any changes once. Get them all *then* (For clarity, a change is something that adjusts the subject–a complete redraw of the subject is not a change and will cost a new black and white sketch of the subject. Please, know what you want ahead of time)
  4. I will fix the sketch. At this point, you pay me at http://paypal.me/sethron
  5. I finish the piece. If it is color, I will send you the black and white and ask you for any final edits. These are minor cosmetic updates.
  6. I finish coloring the piece. You can ask for color adjustments at this stage–get it all at once.
  7. Success!

The Rules & Shit

Your Rights & Mine
You retain the rights to your intellectual property–your OC or otherwise remains yours. I retain the rights to my art.

  1. I may display your commission freely.
  2. I may resell my art, including art of your OC.
  3. You may redistribute for non-profit the art I have given you, but you may not sell it without my permission.
  4. You may create as many copies of your commission as you see fit for non profit reasons.
  5. You may not remove my signature.
For Profit Commissions
If you purchase a piece of art from me explicitly for the reselling of it or use on a profit venture, I must be informed ahead of time. I reserve the right to refuse such commissions, as I reserve the right to refuse all commissions.
The General Rules of my Art
In general, with regards to my art (not just commissions)

  1. You may use my art to learn from. This includes tracing. It’s how I learned. Go fucking nuts, but give me credit somewhere.
  2. You may use my art for character play-bys or forum decor, but give me credit.
  3. Feel free to distribute or use my art for any non profitable purpose, but give me credit.

The Basic Commissions

Here are examples and costs of my general commissions. Please be warned that there are some NSFW examples, although they are not the forefront pieces. Note that all costs are per character drawn.

Chibis ($20)

Chibis are small, simplified drawings of whatever character. They do not come in bust version for me, but if a group picture is commissioned of them, you may see differing variations on how much of them are visible.

Difficult (+$20 or more)

Difficult is added for any additional things you ask for that I would find challenging. Weapons, armors, specific styles. You will be informed by me how and for what I think the difficult tag will be added, and have the opportunity to remove those elements before we settle. An animal or furry is always a character of their own, with the difficult tag added to them. This is an addition to the base cost.

The Weird Commissions

These types of commissions require negotiation up front for costs, because there’s no guarantee how much work they are going to be

Animation (By Frame)

Animations are complex pieces that can range from 2 – 300 frames. As I draw these frames individually, they cost per frame. These are almost never colored.

Comics (By Panel)

Comics are a bunch of art, put together, to tell a story; as such, I charge per panel, evaluating that panel’s cost. No panel costs less than $20, even if it’s just an effect panel.

Base Request

Chibi, Full body, or Bust

Chibis ($20) are small, simplified drawings of whatever character. They do not come in bust version for me, but if a group picture is commissioned of them, you may see differing variations on how much of them are visible.
Bust ($30) commissions are anything that is stomach-up. It guarantees nothing more than the shoulders up, but can extend down to as far as the hips.
Full Body ($40) commissions include anything that shows thighs or below. You are not guaranteed anything further down, but a full-body commission often includes everything including feet.

Additions 

These are added to the base request to make the total (So a Complex Color Chibi is $80)

Simple Colors ($40) are colors without shades, or ‘box colors’. This sometimes can include very basic shadows done on the skin and hair, but never includes shadows on clothing.
Complex Colors ($60) are fully invested shades and textures added as the piece needs. If you want my coloring to the full extent, this is where it’s at.
Difficult ($20+) is added for any additional details you ask for that I would find challenging. Weapons, backgrounds, armors, specific styles I’m emulating. The amount this tag costs depends on the added complexity of the piece. You will be informed by me how and for what I think the difficult tag will be added, and have the opportunity to remove those elements before we settle. An animal or furry is always a character of their own, with the difficult tag added to them.
Background ($20+) I will add a simple background frame to any commission for $20. It makes a commission stand out really well. Real background that are not a frame cost $20/hour worked on them, minimum $20.

Other Pieces

Sometimes people want me to do animations, comics, logos, etc. These are negotiated on the fly and I will show you what it costs. Keep in mind that comics and animations can get very expensive, because of how many drawings one has to do in order to do them. Don’t be afraid to ask, but don’t be surprised if I quote you in the $400+ range.

 

 

An Example Email

Subject: Commission: Jarrek the Knight

Message:

Type: Full Body, Complex Color

I’d like a drawing of Jarrek, my character. He is 6’0, brown hair tied back in a ponytail, blue eyes, pale skin, a full beard and mustache, wearing a basic tunic with a thick belt. Reference pictures below: (include all references you can–other art, pictures of what you’re imagining, photos of people who look like your character, whatever)

The Special Commissions

These commissions are specially priced as they are made to be packaged.

Card Suit $350 [Valued at: A lot. My prices just changed.]

The back of the cards are already made, but if you would like to purchase a new Suit, here’s your bulk price option and details. This cannot be used with any other discounts. Sorry, Patrons. It’s already 50% off.

What you get: A full set of non-face cards (1-9), a Suit Border, a Suit Ace, and 4 Face Cards (10-13)

Choose a Suit [Cannot match a previous Suit I have made]
Choose High or Low Suit [High Suits have the cards: Knight, Prince, Princess, King as their 10, 11, 12, and 13; Low Suits have: Apprentice, Jack, Seneschal, Master as their 10, 11, 12, and 13]
Assign the characters you wish to the Face Cards (10, 11, 12, 13), send me your crest (optional) for the Ace.
Send me references of all character outfits with thorough descriptions of how the character should differentiate from the visual of the player. Anything that is referenced poorly will be made up. You may tell me personalities, but I get final say on poses (although you may suggest poses. Most will probably match your suggestions, but the reason there’s a discount on this is that it’s a large-order theme deck and that means I have to be able to keep you from asking me to draw you doing a backflip)
Pay up front. No further discounts allowed on this large scale order (sorry patrons, you can apply your discounts if you wish to purchase the suit piecemeal, below)

Face Card ($100)

An Art Nouveau style drawing of your character, no frame* (examples are shown with frames), full body, simple color(ish) [Full body, Simple, +Difficult]

Card Border ($160)

An Art Nouveau style border that matches the suit of your choice (cannot replicate a previously claimed suit). Will be applied to any card made under that suit. For complete clarity, you are paying for 2 artists here. While you could pay for one (me, at $20/hr), my work on these takes about 8 hours and is sub-par to Adriana’s specialized labor in vector work ($50/hr). Our cut is divided $100/$60 respectively, for complete up-front knowledge.

Ace Card ($80)

A Rendition of your crest for the Ace Card. Sometimes the crest will already have been made, and then you are paying me mostly for framework. I don’t expect people to buy aces individually, but get them packaged. It comes with the banner border (around the flag), but does not include the card border unless you have commissioned a card border.
