Commissions Are Open!

Journal Entry: Fri Oct 3, 2014, 10:56 AM
Ice's Digital Commissions.


G'day folks!

Don't you miss when I used to post art on a pretty regular basis? Yeah, me too. And it's a little bit depressing to be honest... which doesn't really encourage motivation. As I said in the last update, the majority of my energy these days is being put into my work, so Ive had little left for personal stuff. I wish I could show off a little bit of what I've been getting up to at work, but I'm not allowed to. Not until next year anyway. Another thing that hasn't helped is my aging laptop. It's getting old, slow, (and broken), and it's lacking the performance needed to take my art to the next level.

I hope to rectify both of these problems by doing some by doing some commissions! Not only will it help get the art flowing again, it will help me fund a much needed computer upgrade. And with new equipment, I'll be able to do some of the awesome things I've been doing at work. I've even included those things as commission options below, to give you a sneak peak.

Anyways. Let's do it. It's been a long time coming, but I can finally say: Commissions are go, go, gooo! :D

Below are the details.



-I'm happy to draw almost anything, I'm not limited to things in my gallery.

-(...but I'm not likely to accept anything like anime, homestuck, or MLP)

-You need to provide plenty of reference. The higher the tier, the more crucial the reference is. 3D work will not be possible without it.

-Please bare in mind I'm a fairly clean artist, so I welcome commissions that are E-for-Everyone. But I will do maturer 15+ work (at my discretion).

-Absolutely no NSFW. (You'd have to pay me a million dollars to draw NSFW).

-No copyrighted characters, unless you can provide proof that the owner has given you permission to commission that character.

-HOWEVER, if it's a fan character, if requested, I will try to mimic the original universe's style as much as possible without infringing the copyright. (May require minor changes to character in the process).

-Work will be posted on the site in which the request was made. (With exception to some maturer pieces)

-You can request that work be sent to you privately and not posted online.


-Please send requests in a Note/PM so I can keep track of them.

-Clearly state your request before going into detail. i.e. Tier 2 - Full painting, 2 Characters. HD resolution.

-Post links to some good, clear, visual references.

Once Accepted:

-Work will start once I have received your payment.

-For Tier 1, you will not be able to make further changes to the commission request once work has started.

-For Tier 2, you will be presented with 3 idea sketches. Further changes cannot be made once you've decided which one to go for.

-For Tier 3, you can ask for periodic progress screenshots. You may make changes while work is underway, as long as they aren't major.

-For Tier 4, you can talk to either Nuke or myself at any time during the project. Major changes must be made early on. Once a certain threshold has been reached, only minor changes may be made.


-All payments will be through Paypal.

-If you don't have a Paypal account, I will need to ask for an Email adress in which to send a guest paypal link where you'll be able to pay with a card.

-Once accepted, Instructions will be sent to you.

Estimated Delivery:

-Tier 1, from 1 to 7 days.

-Tier 2, from 1 to 2 weeks.

-Tier 3, from 2 to 4 weeks.

-Tier 4, from 1 to 2 months.

-These are only rough estimates. My day-job may delay work.

-Some higher Tier commissions may take priority, which may also delay work.


-If you are not happy with the final delivered work, talk to me and I will see what I can do to fix the problem. If the fix is too major or requires a complete rework, then you will be entitled to a full refund*.

-*Refunds will only be accepted within 7 days of delivery.




(Note: Pixel dimensions are a rough estimate)
(Note2: Per-character prices refers to any extra characters, and doesn't include the first one)

Tier X - NSFW
<£999,998 No.
£999,999 Maybe a little sideboob.
£1,000,000 Alright, I'll draw his vegetables.

Regarding the 3D commissions- As mentioned at the start, my current equipment limits what I can do. Therefore, they will be locked until I have a more powerful computer.
Target 1 - £250 - I will consider the trial run a success, and shall continue full steam ahead!
Target 2 - £750 - New computer here.
Target 3 - £1000 - I'll add a few upgrades to the mix. Boost the productivity even more.

Potential Goals:
If I somehow manage the above, I'll maybe look towards building myself a proper workstation. Desk, big computer, multiple screens, that sort of thing... a man can dream, eh? :)

What are your commission prices?
IceDragonhawk Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
At the moment, I'm not doing commissions. I'm not sure about when, or even if, I'll eventually open them. (I honestly haven't a clue how to price them, I haven't had much success previously)
Duracraft27 Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2014  Student Photographer
Really? I'd recon around 20 or 10 dollars. Maybe less to open up business and gradually raise them maybe?
