OK, sorry, it's been a long time. There are reasons. I've been unemployed for the last 5 months since the temporary contract I was working came to an end. I am also in the depths of a mahoosive depression that just won't shift no matter what. (Although I am seeing a therapist now, so that's something.) I'm doing art just to keep my brain busy and to stop Bad Thoughts.
So... I'm finally thinking I might start doing commissions. It's not definite, but maybe something will come of it. And maybe it will help keep the Bad Thoughts at bay. This is just a test.
What do you think of these prices, if I were to do commissions? Are they over-the-top for someone of my limited talent? They're just a stab in the dark at the moment, based on what other people appear to be charging and what I think I could realistically do in a day.
A3 (approx 29cm x 42cm)
Black & White, single character, no background, fully inked:£80 ($125)
Black & White, single character, with background, fully inked: £100 ($160)
Black & White, multiple characters, any background, fully inked: £150 ($235)
Coloured, any characters, any background: £200 ($310) - these take a lot longer
A4 (approx 21cm x 29cm), smaller than I usually work, but I thought I'd provide the option
Black & White, single character, fully inked: £50 ($75)
Coloured, single character: £100 ($160)
I work on good quality Bristol board, so I'd send you the original physical artwork and a high quality digital image (I tend to do any tidying up in Photoshop after scanning, so the digital image is the final image). I can reasonably do a single A3 B&W image in about a day or two, which is why I've gone for these prices.
Check out some of my best characters here. Maybe you'd like a Marvel or DC (or other) superhero?
Or perhaps something from Time and Space might interest you?
Maybe something in colour?
Let me know what you think: is this something people would like? Am I being reasonable? If I get enough requests, I might give it a go.
