After a little while of thinking i've decided to have a go at doing commissions for peoples...
This is a small selection of my later creations:
For pricing im gonna go with this, although this may be subject to change perhaps in the future and on certain individual circumstances*
Universal shipping cost is £5 although again this is subject to change should the price of postage be much more for some reason.
I do send all pics in a cardboard shipping tube so it should remain pretty much perfect and i apply a fixative to prevent smudges (although this can be skipped if need be).
* The reason I mention individual circumstances is for the most part pricing is based purely on size (although ill get to the specific rules and what not later) however if you ask for a large amount of people to be drawn then prices may change a bit, but not too drastically.
Unfortunately its difficult to give any estimations of time as I'm still in full time edumacation currently so yea...
Ill likely be able to give a more definite answer at the time and can give updates as i go.
The only real rule i have is that the subject is a person and preferable doesn't have a background, or at least a detailed one as such.
It need not be someone you know, for example you can ask for a celebrity however you must have permission to use the image you want, i don't want a run in with the CIA if possible.
Whatever your choice, i require the image you want drawn to be sent to me, easiest way is probably in a note here on DA, although so long as i can view it i don't really mind how you show me it.
The image HAS TO BE A GOOD RESOLUTION, particularly for an A3 image or where there are many faces so the drawing will be detailed. I work by putting said image on Photoshop and adjusting contrasts and other doo-dads, then I apply a grid and work from there. If the reference is not a good quality/size then the final piece simply wont be good enough.
All of this can be evaluated after contact and before i start the portrait to check all is well.
If possible i'd like to have permission to upload the finished pieces to my gallery although again if theres any specific reason as to why you wouldn't want this then thats okey doke.
Personally I think Paypal is the best method for me although if this isn't possible then i'm sure something else can be worked out.
Payment method will have to be decided before I start anything however the actual payment will take place post completion of the picture which i can upload to DA to show you and check your happy with it. Once the payment is received ill post the portrait
