PRICES AND SAMPLES

Illustrations & Projects

I have an hourly rate of 50€/hour for any options not listed elsewhere or is any of the following:

  • Book cover
  • Chapter illustrations (small or big)

Character Design

I have an hourly rate of 45€/hours for characters designs. Character designs mean there are no visuals or similarly of the character, or a character needs an overhaul. I will not do this for the set-price commissions, unless you pay for both the set-price and the character design rate.

Coloured Sketches

Coloured sketches are relatively clean and have some basic colours on them. They may have some details, but are generally not extremely detailed, and smaller details are often nothing more than general shapes.

  • Bust-up: 40€
  • Waist up: 60€
  • Full-body: 100€

 

Finished (basic)

I have two full-colour options. This is for fully coloured art, but not necessarily extremely detailed.

  • Bust-up: 80€
  • Waist-up: 120€
  • Full-body: 150€

Finished (detailed)

This is the second option. Detailed lace covering a large area, lots of jewellery or pearls, design details on buttons and similar fall in here. So does complex hairstyle, such as lots of small braids if you want them more detailed. Details often take a lot of extra time.

  • Bust-up: 100€
  • Waist-up: 150€
  • Full-body: 200€

Couples and Groups

Couples and groups are 75% of price/per character; examples follow:

  • Couple in sketch waist-up: 90€
  • Group of 5 complete art bust-up: 300€
  • Couple in detailed full-body: 300€

Extras

  • Backgrounds: By default, the background for the set-price commissions is a single colour, or no background at all if preferred. I can draw a background for a negotiable fee.
  • Logos: If your property or otherwise free to use, I can add logos for free, if a file to use exists. If I need to draw one, I will do it for a negotiable fee.

  • Very gory things
  • Discriminatory artwork

TERMS & POLICY OF SERVICE

Payment

  • There is always a 40€/sketch down payment for set price commissions and 50€/sketch for projects, character designs and illustrations. Once I finish the piece(s), the remaining cost is paid.
  • Instalments are possible; I understand not all can pay large sums right away and hence will individually make a plan, but a general guide is a 10 % increase in cost.
  • I mainly take payments through PayPal, and I will usually send an invoice.
  • You can also pay through Ko-fi, but note that
    – Down payment will be 14 coffees (42€) for set-price commissions and 17 coffees (51€) for projects and illustrations.
    – You need to pay with a number of coffees that cover the price, even if that results in 1-2€ more. You cannot round down.
  • I have the right to change fees at any times, but the Commissioner pays the price it was at the time of commission.
  • Prices may be negotiable.

Art

  • I will draw a rough sketch for you and change it until you accept it. Note that rough sketches are not detailed. They are to give an idea of what the work will look like and does not include colour.
  • Expect that I need a minimum of 1 week after I begin and at most 2 months/artwork.
  • I will update regularly on the process. This generally happens on Fridays unless Commissioner contacts me other days, or I happen to be ill.

Usage of art

  • We will decide the artwork can be used for. The Commissioner can ask at a later date for additional use, if desired. This applies to both commercial and non-commercial work.
  • The Commissioner is not to sell non-commercial work without explicit written permission. Commercial work is to be used only for the purpose it’s been drawn and any advertisement for that purpose.
  • Fanart is never to be sold unless I and Commissioner both receive written permission. Period. If work is sold I am not responsible and cannot be upheld in court for copyright infringement.
  • I don’t demand any extra payment for rights to use my artwork, unless there is a reason for me to receive royalties (so generally not).
  • Fees of 20% of original payment/6 months are to be paid to me if used outside of decided use. This does also apply to copyright holders.
  • Above terms exist to protect my rights in Swedish court, and elsewhere, but I’m generous of what the art can be used for.

Privacy

  • For legal reasons and tax declaration, I will keep copies of:
    – The conversation about the commission instead of a contract (screenshots or emails)
    – PayPal receipts
    – Any email address I have

Other

  • Artwork may be delayed because of:
    – Illness
    – Death or illness of a loved one
    – Technical issues
    – Extreme weather (where I live that’s most likely a snowstorm resulting in electricity going out)
    – Anything I can’t control
  • The terms and policy may be changed at any time without notice, though I will try to let current Commissioners know.
  • I reserve the right to refuse a commission request with no explanation as to why.
  • Commissioner agrees to these terms upon commissioning.
