I have been considering it for a while and have decided that I am going to accept art commissions. If you don’t know what an art commission is, it’s when someone asks an artist to create something for them. In my case, I will be doing character illustrations! Examples of my artwork can be seen on my blog, where I have artwork like my Ladybug Girl, Bee Detectives, and fully-colored Sourelise character icon.
Character Illustrations by Pencil Princess
I can draw an already-existing character or bring your original ideas to life.
A character illustration includes a black-and-white drawing of one existing character with no background. Additional characters are extra.
Close-up / Icon (shoulders to top of head) – $1 base amount
Medium (torso to top of head) – $2 base amount
Full-body (entire body) – $3 base amount
+$1 for digital color, +$2 for traditional color
+$1 for complex shading
+$1 for a complex background (objects, scenery, etc.)
For example, if this piece were a commission, I would charge just $2, because it’s an icon with digital coloring. There is only minimal shading, and it was done during the lineart phase rather than with color, so I would not charge extra.
All prices are negotiable and subject to future change.
My Commission Process
This is how commissioning me will go.
Step 1: You contact me and tell me that you would like to commission me.
Step 2: I let you know that I can do your commission and tell you what the price will be.
Step 3: If you are willing to pay that price, you pay me half of whatever that is before I start.
Step 4: Once confirm that I have received half of the agreed-upon price, I will begin working on your commission as soon as possible.
Step 5: I will send sketches and progress updates periodically, and you can tell me what to do or change. Up to five free changes during the sketch / design process. Once inked, it will cost extra for any changes.
Step 6: Once I am finished, I will let you know and send a watermarked, low-resolution version of the finished product.
Step 7: You will pay me the other half of the agreed-upon price.
Step 8: I will send you the unwatermarked, full-quality piece of artwork. You will then own the character / piece of art that has been sent to you and will be able to do whatever you like with it.
NSFW or 18+ commissions will be declined. I also have the right to decline any commission request that I feel uncomfortable with.
Currently, my email address / Google account, firstname.lastname@example.org, is the only way to contact me for commissions. If you also have a Google account, we could use Google Hangouts to communicate. I usually check both more than once a day.
Thanks for taking the time to read all of this! Commissions will be open until further notice. 🙂
