Commission pricing 2012

I will be available for new commissions after June. I am sorry for the long wait.

These are my prices, updated. I take commission details directly at buttercupsaiyan@gmail.com, so if you're talking to me on another site, be sure to send me an e-mail too.

If you already have a commission, ignore this edit. I only accept payment in advance now! I have a long waiting list, but if you're willing to pay, I will do my best to deliver soonish and keep in active contact with you.

Extra characters or difficult poses are +$15, and I will only do one major revision of a full draft and 3 minor changes after the first draft is done.

Speedslots, which are done more swiftly and without input, need to have all the information and references up front and when it's done, it's done.

If you commission me, I'm assuming it's because you like my art and you're also giving me artistic freedom to improvise and work with your idea.

Pricing is based on average time. If your commission takes 3 or 4 hours longer that predicted, I reserve the right to raise the price. I'm a detail-oriented artist and I tend to go above and beyond the original concept. With that out of the way, here's the examples.

Thank you for looking!

That will be going on all this week, as time and energy permits. For more specific details, just catch me in an e-mail (buttercupsaiyajin@gmail.com) or through the IB notes system if you'd like to try to schedule for a specific day or time after 9 PM EST but before 3 AM (for a Livestream session).

I offer refunds of unfinished commissions, with acceptable time to transfer it back over of about two weeks.

If (when?) I get to commissioning you I'm going to ask for your brilliant colours. Especially those digital painting tones look exquisite!!

Bright colors?

SAI: Lumi and Shade abuse.

Flash: Save as Movie Clip symbol, go down to blending modes, pick Overlay after making a Gradients-only type layer.

Photoshop: Color layer / Luminosity layer / Soft Color layer

I should pick up digital colouring sometime, though I doubt it's as simple as pushing the right buttons!

Gradients going from one color to another are a good introduction!

I'm so going to whine about my failure to you next time I'm trying digital colouring. :D I guess for now I'll stick to traditional colour blending; I adore it so much. Thank you for the encouragement though. And although it involves different media, seeing those colour choices in your paintings is pretty inspiring.

I do work traditionally, it's just that screenshare/ desktop capture + tablet and undo is a tad more appealing than trying to tape my webcam to a lamp and draw regularl on the painting desk right next to my current PC setup...

What's your choice of weapon in traditional arts? I'd like to get enough to afford canvases and true brushes again.

I can see how that's easier, yeah. But I'd probably still prefer seeing you work traditionally as I have a better grasp of what's going on. I managed to catch two of your streams now (yay, technology actually cooperates suddenly) and I mostly found it very interesting, but some of the operations went past me. Great to see you construct a character and polish it though.

I mostly use watercolour pencils and a calligraphy pen when I have the canvas that can handle that. Going to practice bringing in brushes again this year too.

Calligraphy pen, huh? How long does that take to learn?

What kind of canvas do you use?
slightlyshade

I use fancy watercolour paper by Canson - it can handle both paint and ink! If you're used to freehanding with a pen I think the calligraphy pen isn't that hard to master, though you might ruin a few pictures in the learning curve - getting intuitive on how to move it to get the thick lines and the thin ones (and how to start a line). Not exactly a master at this myself yet, but if you're determined it shouldn't take you a year to get adept at it! Not sure if it's worth it, many artists I spoke to that have tried it felt too restricted by it, and then some (mostly manga comic artists) swear by it and produce beautiful dynamic lines in no-time.

Hmm ... I do need to get some nice chunky Pigma pens for heavier inking. Right now, I've not really had the opportunity to work traditionally because of my job and messy desk...
