Ok guys, here's the skinny. My life is a complete and utter mess at the moment, completely
. I am stuck on a course I don't like, in a place I hate, I have hardly any money and as I live on campus in term time accommodation, if I don't find a place to live in about 3 months, I will be homeless
(I was supposed to be staying with my parents for the summer, but they decided to go live on boat somewhere...). I've also been busy looking for a job, which is why I haven't been too active on the site lately. Of course... there are no jobs available.
SO. COMMISSION WORK.
I'm opening up shop. I was planning on doing this a while back, but I sorta didn't. I'm like that... all planning, no action. But that all changes NOW! I DON'T WANT TO END UP ON THE STREETS. Seriously, sleeping under the sky gives me a rash, and a severe case of being dead
Here's how I'm gonna do this. If you would like me to do something for you email me at mikeyturvey [at] gmail.com and we can sort something out, payment will be made through PayPal and prices are as follows (bear with me, I'm still new at the commission work thing):
Inked black and white piece: £25 (about 35USD)
Full colour piece, coloured in photoshop: £40 (about 60USD)
You will be sent a full resolution JPG which should print smoothly on paper up to 11 x 17 inches. These prices are negotiable, I'd charge less for a single character than I would for a full scene with the background and everything.
Original line art can be sent to you but that will cost extra! Sending things around the world ain't cheap you know!
Pixel painting on canvas.
These'll cost a little extra than the drawings, as they take a long time to do, plus I have to cover the cost of materials used and postage and packaging. If you want one of these done email me and we can settle on a price. So you have an idea of what they'd cost, I'd charge about £70 (about 100USD) for that Bucky O'Hare piece (it's not for sale though :P) which is on on a 16 x 16 inch canvas. Again, the prices on these will change depending on complexity of the scene, amount of pixels, colours used, etc, etc...
Custom 360 faceplates.
This is a new one for me... I've been told that I should do it by both Digtastik and Craineum, so I thought I'd give it a try. I've not done it before... so if someone wants to send me a a blank faceplate to experiment on, I would really appreciate it. :)
Prices will be negotiable on the faceplates, I'm not sure what to set as average price, as I'm just starting.
With regards to the pricing for things that need to be posted, they may change depending on how much it costs me to ship them out. And regarding pricing in general, these aren't fixed, they may change depending on what you want.
So there we are. I am asking Destructoid for help. If there is anyone out there that hasn't been slammed too hard by the credit crunch and would like a personalised piece of artwork done, please, let me know.
While I'm here, I just want to mention to Y0j1mb0, your samurai is on the way! And to SilverDragon1979... it's nearly finished!
P.S. I also do watercolours! Seriously.
