Concept Sketch Sheets (aka Character Exploration Sketch Sheets)
These sheets are by the hour and start at $180 (minimum 5 sketches of various sizes, quality, and amount of character showing). This is roughly 4 hours of work. These include lots of small sketches, some of which may contain color or shading, and are basically just me having fun and doing studies on the character or creature to figure out nuances based on the guidelines given to me by the commissioner. These are a unique and fun way of showing off a reference for your character and for gaining an understanding of how some ideas about your character could possibly work.
Base price of $180, +$45 for every additional hour for a maximum of 10 hours.
Painted Waist-Up Portraits
A single character, fully rendered, waist-up portrait. Backgrounds are simple and are generally splashes of color or light unless requested otherwise. These work great as phone wallpapers or Icons when cropped.
Base price of $300
These are "experimental", artistic freedom pieces in which, after receiving minimal guidelines from a client, the quality and composition are left to me. Some may come out looking like fully-rendered paintings, other times they will be more rough, looking more like elaborate colored drawings. In almost all instances, they will either be fully colored or detailed, rendered B/W. Backgrounds are generally rough or implied. As these pieces require a certain amount of trust, I charge a flat rate of $500 for a maximum of two characters. Please also note that the amount of detail in armor or character design will be left to my discretion. Commissioners will be able to approve each stage of development.
Flat rate of $500.
These are more refined pieces and can be anywhere from a full-body portrait to a full scene depending on the requirements or expectations set by the commissioner. Typically, they are fully realized scenes with more attention paid to composition and rendering. Commissioners generally receive a few different thumbnails to choose from, which can include color and lighting options. Price increases with added detail and rendering at the instruction of the commissioner and add-ons as listed in the section at the top of the page. Click on the above examples for an idea on what to ask for regarding quality.
Base price of $600 for single character, rough background.
Ref sheets work a little differently than the other types of commissions as I work very closely with the commissioner in order to depict the most accurate version of the character possible. Good and clear communication is a must with these as well as accurate and up-to-date references, descriptive or visual (though visual is very much preferred if at all possible).
Base price of $600. Includes up to two images of a character (front and back view OR two different forms of the same character, for example, and a color palette). Price increases with added detail.
