So like I've mentioned in my last post, I'm thinking of trying out doing commission work here in DA. Times are really tough right now for me and I need to make some extra income. So please help out a fellow starving artist.
I've been looking at some of the guidelines of other artists that I follow here on DA that do commissions, and I got some tips and pointers from *KaanaMoonshadow
So here it is:
Line Art Commissions A4 size canvass on 300dpi
50USD for 1 character, 20USD per additional character. No Backgrounds.
Half to full body line art drawings of existing characters or characters created by client. Usually, I draw very rough character poses on paper then I draw tighter lines in Photoshop.
5 slots available.
Once I've started on a piece, line art commissions may take anywhere from 3 days to 1 week.
Full Color Commissions A4 size canvass on 300dpi
120USD for 1 character, 60USD per additional character. With Simple Backgrounds. Elaborate backgrounds subject to different charging depending on complexity.
Half to full body digitally colored commissions of existing characters or characters created by client.
5 slots available
Full color commissions can take anywhere from 1 2 weeks.
Interested Parties should send me a note and specifications and I shall write your name down on the available slots. I will engage one client at a time, so please bear with me and I shall get to your request as soon as I can. But I will do reply to you right away to let you know where you are on the list.
Once we've agreed on the piece that you want done, I shall work on a very rough sketch for the pose and have it approved with you. After that I shall go ahead with the rough breakdowns of the line art. If you're happy with that, I shall request for a 50% downpayment via Paypal before I proceed to finish the line art. After which, I shall send you the final line art in a 600X800 JPEG. If you are happy with that, I shall request for the balance of the payment before I send you the Hi-res PSD file.
Process is similar with Full color commissions except that I shall you rough paint breakdowns to capture the mood lighting and color palette before I request for the 50% downpayment.
