Art Commissions: Open!

I’m finally opening commissions!

I’m so excited to finally be taking commissions and really hyped to make custom art for you all! Thanks for your support and keep reading for more info. I’ve tried to be as detailed as possible, but if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact me via my contact form, DM on social media or email fromapaperplanenomad@gmail.com!

Price Breakdown: Complexity

  • Sketch = £10 (bust) £15 (half body) £20 (full body)
  • Lineart = £20 (bust) £30 (half body) £40 (full body)
  • Flat/Simple Colours = £25 (bust) £35 (half body) £45 (full body)
  • Full Painting = £40 (bust) £50 (half body) £60 (full body)

Listed above are base prices i.e. w/ single figure + plain/transparent background. Lineart may have basic greyscale flats if it is simple (please see example below). If in doubt, the deciding factor between bust/half body is likely to be the inclusion of hands, and the deciding factor between half/full body is likely to be the inclusion of feet/shoes.

Clockwise from top left: (1) sketch example (2) lineart example (3) simple/flat colours example (4) full painting example. These would be considered as ‘half body’ with a ‘complex background’ (see section below).
Another example of simple/flat colours. At this stage, this would be considered a full body simple/flat colours with 1 additional figure and complex background (total £91)

Price breakdown: backgrounds

  • Plain/transparent background: no extra charge
  • Simple background: +£3
  • Moderately complex background: +£6
  • Complex background: +£10

Example of a half body full painting with a complex background = +£10 (total £60)

Price breakdown: landscapes (scenery without figures)

  • Simple (lineart): £10

  1. Send me your request, as many moodboard/reference pics as possible and other useful information (e.g. fancast; OC description)
  2. I confirm a quote (£) with you based on your request and 50% payment upfront. If you later want a print add-on we can sort that out at the end!
