Current Commission Information

I work in a range of styles as demonstrated in my galleries, including watercolours and digital paintings. Subjects that I can paint include general fantasy themes (fairies, elves, mermaids, warriors, knights, RPG characters, unicorns, dragons, mermaids, angels), science fiction, and urban fantasy. At the moment I have a preference for digital art, but may consider traditional painting commissions. Please contact me if you want a quote for a traditional piece as shipping differs from location to location.

Commissioned work may include:

  • – Cover art, book and magazine illustrations, interiors
  • – RPG Character illustrations (original characters only – no fan art except for Guild Wars 2/ WoW. Commercial commissions exempt from this exclusion).
  • – General illustration work for personal or commercial use
  • – I am NOT doing portraits based on photographs of people at the moment (i.e. no self-portraits or portraits of family or friends)

 

Please contact me about Commercial work. I have some pre-made covers available which are cheaper than fully customised covers/ commercial illustration. All prices listed below are for personal use only. This includes character portraits of book characters for website use.

Most commissions are completed within 2-10 weeks of payment depending upon size, complexity and media (please be aware I work a day job as well as being an artist). If you are interested in a quote, please contact me.  I can work to deadlines, but need to know in advance for planning purposes.

How I work – Personal/ Private commissions ONLY:

  • – All prices are quoted for non-commercial work only. I retain all rights to the artwork – you are not allowed to resell or modify the artwork.
  • – I’m allowed to post the work in my portfolio and social media sites.
  • – You can use the artwork for personal avatars/ icons/ profile pictures, print out copies for yourself etc.
  • – I tend to work on a first come, first served basis. If you can’t pay within a timely manner, I have the right to take on other work.
  • – Payment is done 50% up front (non refundable), 50% on completion. Artwork will only be sent after final payment is received.
  • – Payment is done through Paypal USD only. I will create an invoice and attach a copy of the invoice which states expectations of the commission
  • – I reserve the right to decline any commission. There are some subjects I don’t like to paint, and I don’t feel comfortable painting some fan art – general RPG is fine. I do it occasionally (GW2 is a definite exception since I do this occasionally for in game gold)
  • – I have the right to make time lapse videos for places like you-tube. I’m happy to list the client as the character’s creator.

If I agree to a commission, after the deposit is paid:

  • – I ask any questions/ clarify ideas via email
  • – I spend about a week doing thumbnails (if complex), otherwise I do a sketch
  • – After the sketch is signed off, I may do colour samples (depending on complexity)
  • – I then start painting. No major changes can be made after this stage. I’m happy to make minor edits, but major changes such as clothing changes/ colour scheme changes/ addition of characters etc may incur additional fees
  • – I send a small, heavily watermarked version for approval and make any final adjustments and on final payment send through the final piece (normally JPEG 8 x 10/11.5 inch @ 300 dpi). I can send avatar versions/ smaller versions as well

Please note, at the moment I am not doing portraits based on real people – i.e. I’m not painting fantasy portraits where the painting must look like you or certain person.

Payments:

I accept payments through PayPal in either US or Australian dollars (this includes credit card transactions). I do not take on speculative/ royalty only work.

Shipping is additional and always shipped using tracking and insurance.
