What size is the painting?
I paint at 11 x 16 inches (International A3) @ 300dpi (~3500 x 4900 pixels). I can paint horizontal or vertical, and can create a static portrait or a more dynamic action pose.
How is it created?
The painting is normally painted in Photoshop, using a Wacom Cintiq (which is a pressure sensative screen that you use a pen on)
Can you paint multiple characters or add a pet
Normally adding an extra character or medium sized pet starts at an extra $50.
What’s the difference between a ‘personal’ or ‘private’ commission and a ‘commercial’ commission?
Personal commissions are meant for personal use only. You can print them off for yourself, get them printed on a product for personal use, use it as an avatar/ online representation. You can’t however sell the image, or create products to sell from the painting.
I allow personal commissions to be used on sites such as author sites (illustrating their character or in non-profit generating items), places like World Anvil etc
How long does it take?
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.
What does it mean, non-exclusive use?
I retain the rights to the image unless you are willing to pay a lot of money (and this only happens normally when dealing with Work for Hire/ commercial commissions). It means that I am granting you certain rights like being able to print copies for yourself, display the image online. It doesn’t mean you own the print rights or sales rights. Unless you have a commercial agreement, you can’t make money off the painting.
