hourly rate: $35.00 USD

Standard Commissions: Many of my Commissions consist of requests for one illustration for a Client’s personal collection. The examples below feature the same character (Bladewind) to demonstrate the differences between my commission options.


Commission Process: Commission scope, schedule, cost, applicable Terms and Conditions – including payment method, any fees and/or royalties, etc.) will be negotiated and fully disclosed to Client at time of Commission Agreement, before Start of Work.


Projects & Contracts: If you would like to work together on a larger project (e.g., a series of illustrations for a publication, exhibition, animation, etc.), please contact me with your idea!

full color illustration: >10 hours

Full color illustrations can be large or small, digital or traditional media, and vary in detail intensity dependent on Client request. These are polished works featuring figure(s) and/or environment setting(s) similar to what you may find in a publication or exhibition. The example image is 16×24 inches.


What you get:

  • Full Color: Yes
  • Background/Environment: Optional

limited palette: 6 – 12 hours

Limited palette illustrations are generally digital and can be drawn and printed in just about any size and any level of detail. These can feature figure(s), and/or environment setting(s). The example image is 24×48 inches and features two full figure drawings. Note: Commission time/cost increases with multiple figures.


What you get:

  • Full Color: No
  • Background/Environment: Optional

figure(s): <10 hours

Figure illustrations can be digital or traditional media, polished, full character designs or smaller and simpler character busts. The example image explores character clothing and was used for social media. Note: Commission time/cost increases with multiple figures.


What you get:

  • Full Color: Optional
  • Background/Environment: No

sketch: <6 hours

Sketches can feature just about anything, from figure(s) and/or environment setting(s) to project concepts such as landscape designs. These sometimes work well for children's book illustrations or other projects involving a large number of individual drawings. Sketches remain largely unpolished when compared to the other commission types. The example artwork explores general character/environment.


What you get:

  • Full Color: Optional
  • Background/Environment: Optional
