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. 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.

Original Watercolour painting Commission

Shipping is custom quoted as I have to factor in international shipping and insurance which starts at around $25 AUD even for small paintings.  Uninsured starts from $5, but I cannot take responsibility if the original is lost) N.B. 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.

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
