Commissions Overview

N.B Unfortunately I am not currently offering commissions of portraits based on real life people (i.e. family, friends, partners). I used to do this, but am not taking on any work of this manner at the moment.

Prices below are for personal commissions only. All are painted at print resolution (8 x 10"“ @ 300dpi minimum). A gallery of my past commission work and larger sizes can be found in this gallery . For information about the commission process, see the bottom section of the page.

Contact me for a custom quote (further information can be found at the bottom of the page, however I am always happy to answer questions. I do not do free or on spec work.

Shipping within Australia is included in the price. All commissions receive a 300 dpi scan of the image as well.

  • I’m not currently working larger than A4 for watercolour commissions


Further Information

How I work – COMMERCIAL commissions ONLY

I love working with authors on cover art and take on a fairly collaborative approach. I generally don't sell full rights or do work for hire, but am happy to negotiate. Please contact me directly for a custom quote or look at my cover art page for further information.

How I work – PERSONAL/ PRIVATE commissions ONLY:

  • All prices below are quoted for non-commercial work only. I retain all rights to the artwork – you are not allowed to resell or modify the artwork. Please enquire for a custom quote if you are after something not priced below

  • 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 work at print size.

  • I tend to work on a first come, first served basis. If you can’t pay a deposit 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. I only ask for a deposit when I am ready to start (I don't have a holding fee but I let you know up front if I'm not able to start for a few weeks)

  • Payment is done through PayPal USD only. This allows for credit card payment or PayPal transfer. I will create an invoice and attach a copy of the contract which states expectations of the commission (what you get from the commission - basically what is written here!)

  • I reserve the right to decline any commission. There are some subjects I don’t like to paint like gore and explicit NSFW art. I paint all things fantasy, angels, mermaids, dragons, fairies, RPG characters, Guild Wars characters (I'm a rabid GW2 player :D), World of Warcraft (WoW characters) - just not actual fan art of characters such as Mercy from Overwatch or Daenerys from GoT. I also love sci-fi and history, having been involved in medieval recreation groups in the past.

  • 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.

  • Time-frames vary based on the complexity of the image. Simpler commissions can often be done in about 2 weeks (includes sketch review), while more complex commissions can take up to 6-8 weeks (normally 2-3 review checkpoints). I generally give a rough estimate before starting accepting a commission.

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 send avatar versions/ smaller versions as well

Some detailed samples of the process can be seen in my blog
