I never thought I'm make an entry about this, but more and more people keep asking about it, so I figured I'd write something up to give people easy acess to information. Don't get me wrong, I love it when people at parties recongise me and ask me question about a piece, or commissioning, but parties aren't always the best place to talk shop. There's too many possibilities for misunderstanding :)
So, if you'd like to place an order for a custom piece, the price fluctuates depending on the size of the piece, the complexity of the piece, and the medium. Sounds complicated right? It's not. Here's a quick refernce chart for standard prices
What the quoted price covers:
Time, Effort and supplies

A - Simple: A simple piece of art has one main 'character' or focus, with very little background. A good example of this would be portrait, or a simple still life. Most Tattoo designs also fall into this catagory.
B - Complex: Has 1-2 characters with a background that fills the whole page. Water, hills, mountains, a simple room, borders, ect.
C - Extreme: Has 2-4 characters of foci in the piece, or with a very detailed background that fill the whole page. A cluttered room, a flower garden, rockfaces/detailed mountains, ect.
A 'Character' can be anything: Dragon, Faery, Unicorn, a portrait, your pet, a sword, ect.'Character' bacically means 'The main object'
All Graphite, Pencil Crayon, Mixed Media and Watercolour work is done on (hot or cold pressed- the choice is yours) 160lb paper.
All Acrylic work is done on Illustration Board or canvas.
How to Order
First off, email me with your idea and image description.
I'll get back to you with a definate price, and flush out all the details of the piece.
Once you have confirmed and sent a minimun of 50% desposite payment (check, money order, or PayPal) I will begin working on your piece.
Once the payment clears I begin shooting with the models. Soon (approx 2 weeks) after that I'll send you a minimum of 3 thumbnails for you to go through and approve.
After you have chosen a thumbnail and give the 'nod of approval' I will move on to the final piece.
When it's done, I send it off to you as soon as I recieve the rest of the balance owing.
If your interested in a finished piece you see in my gallery, simply message me, and I'll tell you all the details if it's availible. Also, alot of my pieces are availible as 8x10 prints ($20 a pop).
Wow, I sundenly feel all uber-art girl.
