General Commission Info / FAQ
What subjects do you paint / what media do you use?
Commissions are painted digitally using an iPad Pro and Procreate. This allows for more speed and efficiency versus traditional drawings and paintings. I usually work from reference materials, but I never trace my references. Everything I make is done by hand.
I do work with traditional media, though I haven't done a traditional commission in a long time. If you are interested in an original piece, I have several drawings and a few paintings available for purchase. Feel free to make an offer on any.
Horses and other equines are my specialty, but I will consider other subjects. Just note me with any questions!
What are your prices and how do you figure your pricing?
Please see my commission widget to the left for current pricing and options.
My commission and YHH prices are determined by approximately how long they take me to complete. I figure for a rate of about $8/hr, but I often work much longer than this to make sure each piece is completed to the best of my ability each time.
Please note: unless otherwise stated, commission cost is for digital web-sized file ONLY. If a print is desired, for a nominal fee I can make prints for you or send you a larger file to print yourself.
What counts as a "complex design" and how much extra does it cost?
I do my absolute best to reproduce the look of your horse exactly. Spots, stripes, and other similar elements take extra time to get right. Here's a rough chart so you can estimate how much your horse's design might cost:
Pinto type markings:
Complex pinto (portrait): add $1
Complex pinto (full-body): add $3
Very complex and/or unnatural pinto (portrait or full-body): add $5
Appy type markings:
7-12 spots visible: add $1
More than 12 spots visible: add $3
More than 70% spotted: add $5
Stripes and similar:
7-12 stripes visible: add $1
More than 12 stripes visible: add $3
More than 70% striped: add $5
Other unnatural/complex markings:
If your horse has markings that don't fall under the above categories, feel free to ask!
How soon will my commission be finished?
Completion time varies and can take up to 8-12 weeks depending on my work schedule. Please be patient!
If there is a deadline for the completion of the piece (Christmas, birthday, etc.) you must let me know at the time of ordering. I can not take a commission if there is a hard deadline fast approaching.
I accept payment through dA (points directly, or through commission widget) or Paypal. If those options are not available, I can also accept personal checks or money orders. I must receive at least 50% of the total purchase before any work is started (100% if paying by check or money order.) This is non-refundable once work has begun on the project.
As stated before: unless otherwise arranged, commission cost is for digital web-sized file ONLY. I retain all rights to the image to use in my portfolio, to advertise my work, or to reproduce as prints. If there is a physical drawing/painting, as the commissioner, you have first say if you wish to purchase the original. If not, I may keep or sell at my discretion.
You may of course share and enjoy the finished image however you like, I only ask that you credit me, and please provide a link back to my page!
