COMMISSIONS AND WHAT I’M DOING WITH THEM: FAQ

COMMISSION STATUS :bulletred: OFF

Q: Doc, do you take commissions?
A: Why, yes, of course. Not often, though.

Q: Are there any general rules for your commissions?
A: Not really, but there are several taboos. First of all, I generally paint PG-13-rated images; I can add blood or sexual themes, yet I don't enjoy painting porn. I don't do detailed backgrounds unless you are willing to spare extra money. Also I'm not amused when you ask me to paint somebody whose anatomy I don't know well or somebody I don't like, just because this way I cannot be sure of the image quality.

Q: So you only paint the stuff you like, don't you?
A: Yes, and I think that's fair. See, it's simple: the more I like the characters, the more effort I put into painting them. Since there's quite a lot of characters I do like, it is safe to say I can paint almost anything.

Q: How can you tell if you can paint some particular image?
A: I always check if I can physically paint the image you'd like to have as a result before starting the serious work, so that I can guarantee it's possible.

Q: I want this and that to be done, now take my money!
A: No, I shall not. You pay me for work only when it's finished and approved from both sides.

Q: How long does it take to finish a commissioned work?
A: That depends on the specific work. Some get done within one evening. Some get revisited for weeks.

Q: What is the average number of commissions in progress you are usually working at?
A: One. I don't take several commissions at one time, because I want to be fully focused on one task and do it right.

Q: How do I know if you're working on a commission?
A: Check the top of this FAQ: there's my current status. If it says "off", that means I'm working on something (or: I'm tired, ill, asleep, on vacation, in a wood, collecting mushrooms...) and cannot take any orders right now. If it says "on"... there you go, I'm open for ideas!

Q: What's your pricing policy?
A: Easy to calculate. First we talk things through and I check if I can do what you want, and then we can choose from the following options:
• a rough sketch, lines only, non-printable size - 5 $ (extra character: + 2 $)
• a detailed sketch, grey shading, non-printable size - 10 $ (extra character: + 5 $)
• a detailed graphic drawing in shades of grey, printable size -25 s (extra character: + 5 $)
• a rough painting in color, non-printable size - 3o $ (extra character: + 10 $)
• a detailed printable painting in full color - 40-50 $ (extra character: + 1oS)
• adding detailed background starts with 15 $ and depends on the complexity of the work.

If you want a fully painted detailed design for printing on t-shirts, book covers, posters, etc., and the quantity of the prints is going to be over 100 pieces, the price starts from 300 $ (but is negotiable in any specific case).

Q: I want a pink dragon with butterfly wings and the face of drunken Benedict Cumberbatch carrying Clark Gregg dressed in a pirate hat and kevlar thongs into the sunset over the valleys of the Seven Kingdoms!
A: What were you smoking? Please, share! Also, I'm sure we can talk this over and make the image a bit saner. Or, I can do it... if you promise you'll NEVER show it to Benedict Cumberbatch and Clark Gregg, unless it was them who suggested the idea!

Dirty Mind, Dirty Mouth by erebus-odora
Dirty Mind, Dirty Mouth
It took me:
- 2 hours;
- 2 software types;
- 2 textures by resurgere
:rose:

Inspired both by Eliza Rickman's "Pretty Little Head" & "White Words" (check out her album O, You Sinners, it's AMAZING)) and Daphne Du Maurier's "Birds".

In case you're into weird accents, strange playlists, and watching things happen, here's the process of creating this image:
PART I :: PART II :: PART III

Made for a lovely lady I know; as she asked me for a rounded shape, I cannot repeat this one exactly as it is. I made an angular shape with modelling clay, made a mould, and shaped the silver metal clay the way it looks here. All the patterns are purely from my imagination... and yeah, there's a fern leaf involved here.

Burnished, polished and darkened with small amount of sulphur ointment. Took me a week to design this from scrap, so... hope she likes this one :3

Мы давно общаемся, это правда.
Я ему рисовала на заказ (и точно еще буду)), это правда.
Мы вместе сейчас не делаем никаких проектов, это факт)))
