Example Pricing

These prices are examples only to give you an idea of potential costs. Your price may increase or decease based on your particular illustration needs. Please contact me for a quote. 

Prices are in Canadian Dollars (CAD). 13% HST will be added for Canadian residents.

Payment Terms

I work by contract only. A deposit of 50% is payable upon contract signing, and the remaining amount is due upon approval of the finished artwork.

If paying by PayPal, 5% is added to each invoice to offset  service and currency conversion fees. If paying by Square, 2.5% is added to each invoice.

Process

The artwork is developed in stages. In most cases these stages include i) simple pose options to choose from; followed by ii) a detail sketch; followed by iii) flat colours to esetablish colour scheme; and concluding with iv) the finished artwork.

You provide me with feedback and approval at each stage, whereupon I make revisions as necessary before proceeding to the next stage, so that there are no surprises at the end.

Personal Use Only

These example prices assume personal, non-commercial use only, with a non-exclusive license to display and reproduce the final artwork forever.

In other words, you may print the artwork (such as to put on your character sheet, for example) and share on the internet, but you may not sell or otherwise profit from the artwork.

Copyright of the finished artwork remains with me, the artist.

Need Commercial Use?

If you require commercial-use artwork, such as for game art; box art; cover art; marketing, promotion or branding; or any other use by which you intend to profit from the artwork, please contact me for a quote.
