I do mostly fantasy and character artwork and these are the basic options you can choose from.

Get in touch

Get in touch!

1. Contact me via mail & straight up tell me the scope of commission you had in mind (check pricing above for options) and whether you have a deadline for it - no need to get into details regarding the picture yet unless you want to test the waters on the price-range or on what is possible.

Questionnaire

2. I will send you a quick questionnaire including some basic information regarding your desired commission, which you will fill in and send back to me. If you are on the waitlist, this is where the waiting starts.

Sketches

3. I will send you several sketches based on your provided information. You pick your favorite sketch or provide me with information on what to adjust.

Payment

4. Once we agreed on a sketch, I will send you an invoice via paypal. Once paid, I will start working on the project.

Working time

5. Estimated minimum worktime per commission is ~2 weeks. You will get regular updates during that time & are encouraged to speak up, should something not develop to your liking.

The final product

6. You get the finished Artwork in sizes of your chosing, usually up to 7k. I also include a version with my website logo, as can be seen in the artworks section. You may use it for social media, but are not required to - it's going to be the version I will upload eventually. I hope you are happy wih the finished product and enjoyed working on it together!

What's the difference between Standard & High Detail?

The main difference between the two is the level of detail in the final image. While an HD image will have all details fully preserved, the standard version can be rougher around the edges. Complicated details may be simplified or improvised in areas that are not in the center of attention and may remain less clean, while more prominent features get extra attention.

What's a scene?

A scene, compared to the other options, is less focused on showcasing a character and more focused on the action of whats happening, or the surroundings and scenery. You can ask yourself: Is my character interacting with his surroundings? Is whats happening around my character equally as important as the character? Is the pose I have in mind very complicated or action based? If yes, those are good indicators. Still unsure? Just mail me a description of what you had in mind and I will help you.

Background price?

All images include a very basic background, which is usually non concrete, blurry or generally just nothing too specific. You can pick the general mood or direction (for example: Mystical, Warm, Sunny, Forest-y), but if you want something specific or want the background to include details, extra fees may apply. Just ask, and we'll work it out!

What's "Other"?

As with the background, all the prices on this page are simplified and boiled down to certain basic options. Since I can't take everything into account, this is the part where all the extra requests come into account. Usually these are things like pets, summons, complicated machinery like golems or whatever comes to mind.

Weekend Express?
