Rejoice! As of today I'm opening commisions for you all! And this time Paypal is an option!
How to ask for a commision
To buy a commision you have to send me a note. No mandatory title is required but if you can put "Commision:..." on it, it would be appreciated. Purely for organizational porpouses.
You can ask for about anything. This time I'm not going to be picky about which type of projects I do and which I don't. 'Though let's not get way too carried away shall we?
Your note should contain a basic idea of what the picture consists of and a list of details that I should be careful to add and/or emphasize in the picture. I will likely discuss possible options on the composition of the picture but at the end of the day the customer is king. Which means you make the call and I should do the picture as close to your specifications as possible.
Sources to some reference material is appreciated, specially if it's rare or hard to find online.
I haven't thought of a specific price list in US Dollars and Euros but well, every new element to a picture does add to the ultimate price.
For starters I'll be doing the following:Characters
: 5 Euros (Lineart only), 10 Euros (Color) for each character on the picture. Large groups of background characters (Like a zombie horde for example) will not be counted as this but rather as part of background work.Vehicles
: 10 Euros (Lineart Only), 20 Euros (Color) for each vehicle present in the picture. Sometimes 'though vehicles in the background can have so little detail that I will not charge this fee for vehicles in the background. As with large groups of people, this will be charged as background work.Background
: This one can be tricky to price. Like I said before, the more detail it has the more expensive it'll be. But I can't describe really how much it could cost because a background can encompass a lot of different things.
Well I guess for deserts and open fields (Oceans included) it should be around 5 Euros (Lineart only) and 10 Euros (Color), Light urban scenarios €10 (Lineart) and €15 (color), heavy urban scenarios €15 (lineart) and €20 (color), Forest/Jungle scenarios €20 (Lineart) and €30 (Color). But that is just to get a starter idea.
There will be two payment methods. The first one and perhaps the one you guys and myself are more comfortable with, will be Paypal. I used to shy away from using Paypal but I have seen the light and will embrace it like my fellow brothers and sisters in art.
Western Union will remain an alternative payment method in case Paypal casts some doubts on some of you. I've used Western Union before and it is a safe mechanism to transfer money. However beware because for this you will need to give out some personal information. Don't worry, if I remember correctly it's just name, surname, location. Just about the usual for this type of transfers.
Full payment is required before work can begin. I will however sketch out your idea for free so you get an idea of how the final picture should be looking like.
This too is dependable on the detail of the picture but usually for smaller drawings I should take about a week upon payment. Medium sized projects may take up to two weeks. And if it's a seriously complex and large drawing, I might have to take three weeksor a bit more to finish it. I take commisions very seriously. Unlike gifts or free requests like back in the old days, for which I took way too much time to finish them, I will focus entirely on delivering the picture on the promised time schedual.
The Commisions list
Unlike before I will not establish a limited cue for commisions. I don't think I would ever fill such a list anyways.
But do take into account that I will be doing these commisions in order of arrival so some might have to wait a bit before I get to your project. Therefore hold on payment until I tell you that your work is next in the cue.
The list so far!
The Panzer's Lounge
The chatroom is back! But not here in DeviantArt. I've decided to bring back the chatroom in the shape of a discord channel.
Please do take into account I may sometimes be unavailable to comment even if I look connected at all times.
Basic rules for the chatroom are: No Spam. No posting offensive or NSFW material (Until I make the appropriate subchannel for it). No insulting or verbally abusing other members. "Insults" as friendly chatter will be allowed for those that are familiar in the group but newcomers beware. There's a limit to the amount of bullshit I can take from people I'm not familiar with. But with time anything goes.

For the love of god don't send memes at 4 o'clock in the morning.

I'll get to all your comments ASAP.
I'll see you in the Battlefield!
