If you want your very own commissioned picture of whatever you like (within reason!), please read the information below, especially the bits about what I will and won't do, payment and copyright issues before
requesting any work, as they're important.
Please remember that when you commission a piece, you are committing to paying money, probably via Paypal, for custom-made digital artwork. Please ensure that you have the funds and the means (i.e. access to a Paypal account) to pay for the work before you request it. If you are under 18 and do not have your own bank / Paypal account, please ensure you have the agreement / permission of the person whose account you will be using before commissioning work.PricingDA 'Mates Rates'

Price on requestAdditional costs
If you have very specific requirements for your image (e.g. character has multi-coloured techno-dreadlocks that are part hair, part lumnous feather, part self-aware cybernetic organism, or very detailed clothing that needs precise reproduction), the cost may be higher. I will let you know if this applies once I have read your request.XE.com's Universal Currency ConverterBefore you request a CommissionPlease
read all the commission info below carefully before requesting a commissioned piece. What sort of file types can be commissioned?
Character portraits, book covers, CD Covers, poster images, flyers, avatars, signature banners, DA icons, logos, promo banners, etc etc. Contact me for enquiries about pricing for any other file types / artwork.I will do:
anything with a fantasy, horror, gothic or similar theme. This includes pics of vampires, angels, demons, warriors, elves etc., essentially all the sorts of things that are in my gallery.I will not do
: chibi, yaoi, yuri, slash, anthro, and probably not steampunk, sci-fi or real-world settings. It's harder to do a good job of something if you're not interested in / inspired by it. If in doubt, just ask. Devil in the Detail
Please give as much detail as possible about what you want. Never assume that the image I get in my head from a description like 'I want a picture of a vampire' will be the same as what's in yours! To avoid disappointment, tell me as much as you can about what you want the character(s) and their environment to look like. If you have a specific image in your mind of their face, their weapons, their clothing etc, then please tell me. If you have sketches of them, send them. If you have a picture of someone who looks like them, or of any of the items or the location you want in the picture, then send them along. It all helps!
