Commissions and Sketch a Day

Journal Entry: Mon Apr 7, 2014, 4:45 PM

Single character prices

Pricing System by Zairyo


This is the rough sketch you get for approval before I start working on any of the other steps. The asterisk indicates that there's a finite number of "free" roughs you can get. Depends on the situation but if it's not my fault I will charge you extra.

$5.00 USD

Affordable pricing for those that want some art done but are tight on money. For a more accurate example take a look at the Sketch a Day folder.

$10.00 USD

A much cleaner and detailed version, ready to put some colors on if that's what you want.

Base Colors
$15.00 USD

The lineart with the base colors added, no shading nor highlights.

$20 - $30 USD

Basic shadows and highlights, similar to anime or cartoons. Price varies by character complexity.

Soft Shading
$35 - $70 USD

A far more detailed shading process. Again price goes up based on the difficulty/design of the character.

Character Design

Character Design Sample by Zairyo

Character Design
$50 - $100 USD

Whether or not you have all the references at hand the lowest price is $50 USD if it takes more than one pass. This is more like sculpting than drawing, there's a lot of back and forth between the client and the illustrator until the inking phase. Based on how many details the character has it can go up in price, the color version is soft shading by default and the client gets all versions like in the example. Even the shadow map.

Character in the sample belongs to ILikeCommas

Sketch a Day

Collection of non commissioned work started in January 2014. Sketch a day consist of 5 - 15 minutes daily sketches.

Sketch a Day Wallpaper by Zairyo

Want me to use your characters in Sketch a Day? here's how to do it:

1. Send me a note with the link of the gallery with your characters.
2. If approved, each day is $5 USD, so buy your days before the month starts. (buy a month for $150)
3. Pay 48hrs before the date you reserved.

What do you get?

You get the 200dpi version of the image without the sketch cards layout so you can appreciate the image better. Card version will be posted on my gallery as usual at 72dpi. You don't need to buy a whole month but you need to follow the steps.

Yea, I was amongst the fools that literally kept their eyes opened until they posted the announcement. Now I'm doing my best to avoid the trailer until then. I just hope that it isn't sad, I need more LiS in my diet ;)
By the way, the patch improves the lip sync issue so it's worth another replay just to see how much. I was already planning on replaying it for the 20th time anyway :D

The trailer psyched me up something fierce! I heard about the patch and was planning on playing all three episodes Sunday and Monday in preparation for Tuesday. This will only be my 4th play through. I plan on replaying and experimenting heavily after the finial episode.
