Commissions

I have many reasons for doing private character commissions. I like doing them. It’s fun to see what other peoples ideas are and what they want to be given visual life.

To that end, you will get an 300 to 600 dpi scan of the artwork. I don’t send originals, often there isn’t one. I’m reserving all publishing rights and may sell prints, the originals or use for any commercial publication. The buyer does NOT receive any publishing rights without expressed written notification by myself. I feel that my price is reasonable for full color artwork and that artists in general should have control of how their art is used.

If you want to use my art for a product, then it becomes a commercial project and a good, fair agreement has to be arrived at. Please contact me at Storn.Cook@gmail.com

I’m primarily interested in working in color. But if someone just absolutely wants to have a black & white ink commission or grayscale, I will do it. However, the price is still $60.00 per figure.

One quality scan (300-600 dpi)

1 figure (no background, or simple wash background): $70.00
(size is usually around 5×7 up to 8×12)
Each additional figure: $70.00*
Background: Usually considered 1 to 3 extra “figures”, so $70.00-$210.00 depending on the complexity of the background

 

 

 

 

 

 

* I used to give a price break on add’l figures, but I have discovered that each add’l figure increases my time dramatically.

Sample of single figure with background

This piece would be considered 1 extra figure for the background.  It is pretty spare, the foreground has a bit of work, but nothing too time consuming.

Sample of complex background

This piece was time consuming for not only it’s action, but the complexity of the environment.  3 actual figures and I charged an additional 3 “figures” worth for the background

WHAT I NEED FROM YOU:

I don’t start work on a commission until I receive a check or Paypal notification. Partly this is because of payment troubles in the past, but mostly it is because of my somewhat busy schedule. Once the payment comes, it is a signal to me to put it into my work in box.

The more information you can send me on a character, the better. Copies (ONLY) of character sheets are a nice help. Descriptions of what you want are a must! Attitude, equipment, mood, personality are all very important for me to get a sense of what to draw.  This commission checklist was created by a patron of my commissions.  Feel free to use it, or simply has a prompt, you certainly do NOT have to fill out every aspect of this checklist:
