2023-24 Commissions -Open-
Hello. I take the occasional commission for fun and have done freelance work for indie game studio startups, small businesses, independent creators, and fellow world builders.
— My Services —
Organic concept art, creatures, and characters are my specialties.
I offer services for all three, as well as illustration. I am not a graphic designer.

I am capable of working from written descriptions, although mood boards are strongly encouraged. Any other visual information is also helpful. To illustrate existing personal characters, I require as clear a reference as possible please.

My style is semi-realistic to realistic and I like to focus on detail. On a case-by-case basis, I will follow the style of an existing project if I am able. I will not replicate the style of another artist.
I work fast and complete projects in a timely manner.

If something is not on either list or you need clarification, please message me!
— Pricing & Process —
All of my prices are subject to change based on the following factors:
Overall complexity, requested level of detail
Number of subjects
Necessary file size
(based on detail desired and project needs)
Time and labor required

I offer a consultation followed by a quote and estimated turnaround time. A contract must be signed prior to any transactions. You of course may ask for changes to the contract prior to signing! A down payment of 30-50% is required before work is begun and the total balance must be paid in full prior to deliverables being released to you. I am flexible with payment schedules.

- NOTE -
By default, any artwork I create for you is NOT for commercial use. Personal use only. Upon request, copyrights for the purpose of commercial use will be granted to you in exchange for a fee.
If you're wanting artwork of your own personal subject(s) drawn, a visual reference will be needed. A subject can be a character, creature, object, etc. If you don't have a visual reference, I will consider this a "custom." Please reference pricing at the bottom for custom work.

Custom Creatures, Characters, Concept Art
$90 - $120 USD per hour
If you're seeking concept art for your creatures, characters, game art, world building, etc., I provide this service at $120 USD per hour. You will be contractually granted copyrights of the work for commercial use at the project's conclusion. If you have no plans to use the work commercially, I will work at a discounted rate of $90 USD per hour. If you later request copyrights, this will be granted to you in exchange for a fee.
If you do not have a visual reference for your existing subject (character, creature, object, etc.), your request will be considered a custom work at a rate of $90 USD per hour. Personal use only unless you request copyrights.
