Commission Info

You inquire for commissions by filling out the form, contacting me on any of my socials, or emailing ausp.iciousart26@gmail.com. I am active on Discord, Tumblr, Deviantart, and Twitter, but email is the best way to contact me if we’ve never spoken before. I do prefer Discord for correspondences but do not wish to list my handle publicly, so feel free to ask for it.

If I do not respond after three or so days, you can also try contacting me via another avenue - I may have missed it! But please do not spam.

I will state a price (in USD), and if you agree, you must pay via Paypal up front (except for character designs, where I sketch first).

Typical Offerings

You may still inquire for something not listed, such as sketches, environment designs, 3D models, etc.

Paintings

Typical Process

  1. You inquire about a commission from me; you can send me the form as the inquiry.

  2. I will quote a minimum price, and you must pay at least that amount up front.

  3. I will get started on the commission.

    1. Note that usually I work very fast and prefer quick correspondences—I will typically send a sketch WIP and only wait briefly for feedback before continuing, especially when I am allowed creative freedom. You may request in the form if you want me to wait for feedback, but I may charge a little more.

    2. You may request a private livestream of the commission if you are on Discord for the opportunity of live feedback. I may decline if I lack availability.

  4. I will finish the commission and send it to you. You may request minor alterations at no charge.

Pricing

I typically paint and have various styles I can use. These styles are divided into rough styles and polished styles, with pricing dependent on whether it is a rough or polished style.

Other than that, pricing will mostly depend on character complexity and how much of the character you would like me to draw. Lighting and simple/blurred backgrounds are included.

Polished Styles

Airbrush

Simple complexity, fullbody: 70 USD.
Character is Trickster, an Edeia fusion owned by me and UnluckiestBlackCat.

Spectra

Complex character, fullbody: 110 USD.
Image is slightly cropped, see full version here.Character is Reaper, Atomic's character.

Mercury

Simple to regular complexity, fullbody, scene: 90 USD.
Image is cropped, see the full version here.Character is Gaelach, fiachmara's esk.

Rough Styles

Blackburn

Simple complexity, fullbody: 60 USD.
Character is Lupo, crowboyyn's Edeia.

Pandani

Simple complexity, fullbody: 60 USD.
Image is cropped, see the full version here.Character is Merle, Mr. Speckles's OC.

Venus

Very simple complexity, halfbody: 30 USD.
Character is Orion, Dragrawr's OC.

Facet

Moderate complexity, partial: 60 USD.
Character is Anima, VoidGremlin's Edeia.

Note that I decide character complexity, you do not. I may pick prices within the listed ranges rather than a specific price.

Head/bust is shoulders-up, halfbody is waist up, partial is knees (or equivalent) up, and full is the entire body, allowing for some artistic cropping. My "default" ranges from partial to full-body, depending on how the composition ends up.

Here are things that may increase the price:

  • Having written descriptions, various images, or unclear references/instructions that require me to do design work (+10-50 USD)

    • Clear and concise references are better. If you have many different pieces, you may consolidate them into a slide or something like that for convenience.

    • Overly specific or complex specifications may also increase the price (+5-20 USD).

  • Requesting a more complex background (+10-40 and up)

  • Requesting a private livestream of the commission (+0-10, depending on convenience and availability)

  • Major alterations to their final piece (+5-25 and up)

  • Requesting multiple WIPs and/or for me to wait for feedback before continuing from WIP shots (+0-20, depending on number of WIPs and your typical response time).

Other Notes

  • You may specify certain details or leave everything to me.

    • I generally prefer to have a lot of creative freedom, but I often like to have a vague idea of the setting/background (note that without paying more, it must be simple/blurred), the mood color, and/or the vibe/emotion you're going for.

  • The prices listed are the minimum prices for my minimum-but-decent effort, and my initial quote will be for that minimum. You may pay more, typically up to about twice the minimum, for me to put in more effort—this can affect the rendering quality, background complexity, and/or posing/composition.

    • You may also request a slightly lower price than my usual for lower quality/more rushed work of the same complexity/parts of the character drawn, but I typically do not prefer this.

  • If we have done a transaction before or otherwise established trust, you may pay after the art is complete; the price will also be decided after I finish. You may provide me with a budget in consideration of allowing more effort, as stated above.

Character Design / Reference

You may also commission me for a character design or reference, which will be a simple-shaded fullbody. I can do them in a polished Airbrush style or Mercury style, or a rough/sketchy Facet style.

Typical Process

  1. You inquire about a design commission from me; you can send me the form as the inquiry.

  2. I will estimate a range within your budget.

  3. If you agree, I will make sketches for the design. Once we finalize the sketch, the final price is decided and full payment is due up front.

  4. I will work on the design and send you the flat colors. If you approve, I will move on to rendering and final touches.

  5. I will finish the commission and send it to you. You may request minor alterations at no charge.

Pricing

Approximate prices are shown to the below. Prices may be lower for commissions just for a reference, rather than a design.

Like paintings, these are ranges and I may quote a price that is not an exact one listed; I will judge how complex the design request is. For complex characters, there is no upper limit.

By default, I will add simple shading and a simple (likely gradient) background, in addition to providing a transparent PNG.

Price for details/extras is for each item, and can include weapons, items, eye details, open mouth, demonstration of abilities, etc.

Simple: 40 USD.

Design commissioned by Ves.

Somewhat moderate + weapon extras: 90 USD.

Gibbs, commissioned by someone I know.

Complex + extra detail: ~180 USD.

Xhen, my own MYO Taum.

Notes

Many notes are similar to those for paintings:

  • You may allow a large degree of creative freedom in my designs or give me very specific requests. If you have not as strong of an idea for your design, you may request multiple starting sketches, which may increase the price slightly.

  • The prices listed are the minimum prices for my minimum-but-decent effort, and my initial quote will be for that minimum. You may pay more, typically up to about twice the minimum, for me to put in more effort—for designs, this can affect rendering quality, detail in the design, etc.

  • You may also request a slightly lower price than my usual for lower quality, more rushed work. I typically do not prefer this, however.

  • If we have done a transaction before or otherwise established trust, you may pay after the art is complete; the price will also be decided after I finish. You may provide me with a budget in consideration of allowing more effort, as stated above.

Closed Species Designs

I am the creator of a number of closed species; you may see more info in the Species tab. Each species has different acquisition methods, which you can find in the specific species info under "Acquisition."
