SO, you want want me to draw a little something?
No problem!
But what you have to ask yourself is:
"Is it within my budget?"

Chances are, it probably is.

I'm reasonable, I'm affordable, I'm talented and I'm creative.
And more than likely I can help you find the right solution to your artistic needs.
So let's give you a taste of what you can expect, via a brief tour of
some of my more common production methods and available services.

But before you do ANYTHING ELSE...

CONTACT ME FIRST for Availability:

My schedule for art is usually VERY open, though, and I take all sorts of requests.
Still, it never hurts to ask...

Simple Character, Art or Other Illustrations
Prices will increase depending on complexity of the proposed project. This includes backgrounds, multiple characters, etc.

This is often the most common request and is usually A4 or 8"x11", or other smaller Standard Print sizes.

For Example: Cheapest Option: (Pencil, Ink, Digital Color Render) = $40
Fastest Option: (All Digital) = $60

Simple Sketch
(Pencil or Digital)
Pencil is usually Higher Quality on Cardstock
Digital is faster, but very loose
(Inking, or Digital)
Graphite and/or Ink is Faster,
Digital is "cleaner" and print ready

Fine Arts or Digital Color
Fine Arts is anything tactile used in rendering, paint etc.
Digital is cheaper and faster

$5 (Digital) - $10 (Pencil) +$10 (Inks) - $20(Digital) +$20(Digital) - $40 (Fine Arts)

Large Format Rendering
Anything Larger than Standard print size of A4 or 8"x11"
Paint (Oils, Watercolor, Acrylic)

Also Large Format, unless smaller size is specifically requested.

3D Modeling
Starts at $30 and increase
depending on size and cost of materials.
Starts at $60
plus cost of materials

Flat $100 Starting Fee for:

Simple Models/Sculpts, Geometrics, & Text
Image Renders only. For motion, apply Animation Rates below.

Character models may levy additional fees.
Variations depend on complexity/time of the build/collaboration, terms of contract.
Models built/animated in Maya.


Hand-drawn Animation or Storyboarding options available:

The "Basic" Animation Charge is $10 per Foot per Second. (12 Frames, Standard Labor)
for a basic "rough" animation and then additional fees apply for cleanup, etc.

So for Example, A 30-second Full Animation:
One "clean" (full ink and color illustration) hand-drawn animation frame is about $30.
12 clean frames = $370 (1 Second of animation plus Labor per foot)
30 seconds (360 Frames total) of cleaned hand-drawn full animation = $11,100
(That's a lot of drawings for one artist! But you can do a LOT with 30 seconds, and some good planning.)

However, storyboards and rough animatics are also available as an alternative, on a "per drawing" basis,
and only "rough" sketches with minimal shading, set to provided audio or script.

Animatic Example:
Simple 30 audio clip, using about 40 Rough sketches used to do an animatic
Roughs: $5 x 40 = $200
Labor(plus editing) (30 Feet): $10 x 30 = $300
Total project cost: $500

And for the Super Affordable Option: Animated Loops!

A 1-second "rough" loop:
12 frames at $5 per frame + $10 Labor = $60

So consider your budget, and what you'd like to accomplish, and I'll try my best to work with you until you are satisfied with the result.

Projects will be privately discussed through correspondence,
iterations will be provided for the length of the project
and then service charges invoiced to the customer upon completion.

I retain the right to deny service, or cancel a project
if content/customer/project become questionable/antagonistic,
and the customer will still be invoiced for any work completed.

*All works used for public or commercial use MUST attribute proper artist crediting, and copyright.*
