Commissions open!

Hey! I hope everyone is having a super awesome summer!!! I'm working at Disney but I've also reserved a couple days a week to work on my art. I'm creating a bunch of new personal work but I also want to start taking on some commissions again.

Here's everything you need to know!

Pencil sketch with optional digital tint or texture - examples 1, 2, 3
Bust (head & shoulders) - $10
Full body - $20
2 characters - $35

Full color digital or traditional portrait with simple pattern background - examples 1, 2, 3
Bust - $50
Full body - $80
2 characters - $130

Full color illustration with 1 or more characters and complex background - examples 1, 2, 3, 4
Starting at $150 - please contact me for a final quote

Custom lettering for logo, blog header, etc. like the "signature" I use on my recent artwork - example
$50 and up, per word, depending on length
Final product is a high-res .png file with transparent background.
(I've never done any commissions like this but I've been getting very interested in hand lettering and would really like to try, which is why the price is rather low for a logo. If you need to see other examples, please let me know.)

Commission slots (to be done more or less in order):
1. B.W. - full body, color, 2 characters - 1st half paid, sketching
2. A.N. - full body, color, 2 characters - 1st half paid, sketching
3. S.W. - original illustration #1 - sketching
4. S.W. - original illustration #2
5. S.W. - original illustration #3

Finished & paid pieces:
1. W.S. - misc. illustration

Notes: (please read all before claiming a slot)
-I'll be opening up five slots at a time and will complete at least 3 or 4 commissions before I open up new spots.

-Please e-mail me at kecky415(at) to claim a spot.

-I accept Paypal, and ask for half payment before beginning on a commission and the other half when I have completed it.

-Please give me several photo references for any portraits of real people, and please keep in mind that I draw stylized characters, not reproductions of photos.

-I will send you a sketch for approval before adding color and shading.

-If you are not satisfied with the final version, I will gladly fix any small issues with it; however, for each revision after one I will add a $5 charge to the fee to be paid upon completion. To clarify, this applies to changing hair/skin/background/clothing color, accessories, etc, because you have changed your mind, not because of a mistake on my part.

-I will send you the full-resolution file by e-mail upon completion so you can print out as many copies as you desire for yourself. If you don't have a way to print it yourself, I can have prints made and sent to you if you just pay shipping and the print base price.

-I still retain the rights to any artwork created and may sell prints of any commissions I do. These prices are for commissions meant for personal use and do not include commercial use, like selling copies yourself or using the prints for business-related purposes. However, if you do want to use my artwork for a commercial purpose, like a poster or logo, please let me know beforehand and I can give you a special price. I usually just add 50% for advertising items that are not going to be directly sold.

-I may increase prices for future rounds of commissions, but anyone who has already claimed a spot will keep the price they were given when they signed up.

-If I don't receive payment within 3 days of a slot being claimed, I may take you off the list if anyone else wants your spot.

I know it sounds like a lot of rules, but I just want to make sure that everything is clear in case there are any issues. If you have any other questions, or had in mind something that doesn't fit into any of the categories here, please let me know!
