Because I’m moving out of the house tomorrow, I’m not going to be working much at all for the next several months. Which means I’ll have little to no pocket money whatsoever. Unfortunately my main money-maker (outside of an actual job) is completely broken; buying a new nib for my tablet pen did nothing, meaning it's either my pen or the tablet itself is the thing that’s broken. Unfortunately I don’t have the money to even try to fix it.
Which is why I’m opening commissions.
Obviously my options regarding media at this point are limited to traditional kinds, but I’m very diverse in what I use. Said media includes graphite, Prismacolor/Copic markers, colored pencils and pens, and now including watercolors and acrylics. I'm going to post my more recent art in the hopes of enticing people to buy a commission from me, though unfortunately the quality of the picture isn't going to be as good as the picture itself. Which is why, if/when I get a commission, I will not only post the picture for you to see, but I'll also ship the picture to you (commission prices will include the price of shipping, if you're willing to give me your address).
Depending on what you’d like to have done, I price things very differently. Each drawing I price based on how long it takes me to draw said thing. (All marker drawings will be done on glossy paper at no extra charge, unless otherwise specified.)
- Simple sketch $5
- Detailed sketch $10
- Added color $2
- Full-color $3
- 1-3 colors $5
- 4+ $10
- Simple colors $10
- Detailed color/multiple colors $15
Now obviously the pricing is kinda iffy, but basically I charge more for the amount of detail than what kind of media I happen to be using. The more detailed the picture gets, the more I’m going to charge for it. If you want more than one person/character in the picture, each character will be priced individually. Backgrounds will obviously be extra. Watercolors are also on a price-on-request basis because quite honestly the paper is fairly expensive and patience when dealing with watercolor is a virtue. Acrylics are priced more or less the same as watercolors, though those are a little easier to paint with than watercolor.
If you want to commission me, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject “commissions.” Please include a detailed message of what you’d like to have done. I am flexible with pricing, but only to a certain extent. Please remember that I am, above all else, a college student.
