Commissions (CLOSED INDEFINITELY!!!)

Sun Oct 16, 2011, 9:29 AM

General Information

  • I reserve the right to display all finished commissions in my online portfolio. (I may make an exception if we both initially agree to keep the work offline for the sake of privacy, i.e. for portraits of children.) I also reserve the right to decline a commission request for any reason, and the right to adjust the price of a commission (before invoicing) if I deem it necessary.

  • If for any reason I cannot complete your commission after you've paid, you will receive a full refund, regardless of how much work I've already done. I will also honor any requests for a full refund of your deposit/payment at any time during the commission waiting period, as long as I have not begun any work beyond a basic sketch.

  • I prefer to be paid by Paypal. I can also potentially take credit card payments through my website if we discuss it beforehand. There may be a small amount added to the invoice to help cover any transaction fees.

  • My commissions are DIGITAL PAINTINGS unless specifically noted otherwise. This means you'll receive a high-resolution (300 DPI) .TIFF file via e-mail or Dropbox when I'm done, NOT a hard copy or a print in any form. Please don't labor under the delusion that I am doing a traditional piece for you, or sending you a print, unless I specifically say so.

  • Regarding pop culture work, typically, I will NOT do art of a series that I dislike or am completely unfamiliar with. This is because I have learned from previous experience that it's difficult for me to create art for a series I don't know, because I can't connect with or properly visualize the subject. If I am doing a portrait of a real-life friend or family member for you I will most likely ask for multiple reference photos for the same reason. I do make exceptions and I don't mind doing some research for your commission, just keep it in mind.

  • Reference images are required, unless it is art for characters that I am already familiar with and you don't mind me choosing my own.

  • The prices and slots listed below do NOT pertain to commercial projects. Commissions described here are for personal use only unless otherwise clearly negotiated. My rate for commercial artwork begins at $2000 USD and ranges up depending on complexity, planned usage, and turnaround time. You may contact me any time (alicexz@gmail.com) regarding commercial projects.


Examples and Pricelist for Personal Commissions


  • I. Standard Digital Portrait – $500 – CLOSED


    This is my standard flat-fee portrait category. Typically 2-3 hours of work from me, full color (unless otherwise preferred), portrait or square layout, semi-realistic style, simple background. Headshot format only and reference image is required. This is the best category for straightforward portraits of family members, friends, favorite characters, pets, etc. Examples:

    Katniss by alicexzElessar by alicexzHandsome Sphynx by alicexz
    Remember me... by alicexzOr maybe he'll give me yours. by alicexz

    I do not allow additional characters in the same piece for this type of commission - this is meant to be a focused, single-subject portrait. I am completely open to doing "sets" of similar/themed portraits, though.

  • II. Stylized Digital Portrait – $1000 & up – CLOSED


    This is my more flexible and detailed portrait category and prices vary accordingly. Full color (unless otherwise preferred), headshot or waist-up; simple or abstracted background; any layout (landscape, portrait, or square); additional detailing, stylization and motifs can be incorporated. Up to two characters. Examples:

    The Abyss Gazes Back by alicexzRebirth by alicexzRachel Berry by alicexz
    A Study in Pink by alicexzAirplanes by alicexz

  • III. Digital Scene – $1500 & up – CLOSED


    My general illustration category. This includes concept art and all portrait commissions that involve more complex background elements and/or a high level of detailing. Any layout; full color, waist-up/full-body, multiple characters/interactions, etc. Price varies on complexity. Examples:

    The Roar of Our Stars by alicexzThe Song of Your Sadness by alicexzWe'll Start a Jazz Band by alicexzThe Lonely God by alicexz
    Virtuoso by alicexzIslands by alicexzBleed by alicexz

If you would like to commission a piece that doesn't quite fit into any of these categories, e-mail me explaining it and I will consider it. I am usually willing to draw anything if proper references are provided; however, I'm by and large a portrait artist, so just... keep this in mind.


How to Order

  • When you're ready, send me a dA note or e-mail me (alicexz@gmail.com) with this form filled out:

    YOUR NAME & E-MAIL:  
    PAYPAL ADDRESS:  
    COMMISSION TYPE:
    (I, II, or III)
    SUBJECT(S):  
    REFERENCE IMAGE(S):
    (provide links or attach images to e-mail)  
    ADDITIONAL INFO:  


  • I will invoice your Paypal address with the total amount, after confirming your request. Please let me know if you need to pay some other way. Your commission slot is will be reserved as soon as you contact me, but forfeited if you cannot pay within a week. I accept 50% deposits to secure slots for larger commissions. Again, if for any reason I can't finish your commission and you've already paid, you WILL receive a full refund from me.

  • Comments below are periodically hidden to keep this informational post clean! Please send me a note or e-mail if you have questions or concerns regarding commissions, rather than commenting here as it causes clutter and I often link this status page to clients. Plus, you have a much better chance of getting a response if you e-mail me, as I am hopelessly unable to keep up with dA comments. Thanks for reading!

Do you still do commissions or are they just all closed?

I absolutely love your art and I was just wondering if I could use your pictures for my facebook cover photo? I just wanted to get permission first :)
