IT’S BACK! Chan Needs Money Special Commission Time!
Hey again everybody!
I’m taking special discounted $60 dollar commissions (and $30 dollar commissions too, see details below) AGAIN to help raise some extra cash due to even more unforeseeable circumstances that has left us in a bind for cash. :( As much as I’d love to work on my comic work right now, I just can’t when it doesn’t pay the bills. A sacrifice must be made, and that is God Machine (momentarily.)
But! Stiff upper lip and other positive sentiments, it’s time to remain positive and take your commissions!
So here’s the deal! (Almost the same as last time, but with some revisions.)
The $60 Commission Package
What do you get for $60 dollars? One digital fully colored bust*/and or headshot and a splash color background. [*NOTE: A bust in this instance is a head to slightly below the shoulders. NO FULL BODY images, please. Though if you’d like that we can discuss extra cost.] What you get is a full resolution image (.jpeg or .tif, whichever you need- please let me know! Default is jpeg). This is for you to make your own prints for your personal collection (again more details on this below).
Here are some examples of what I did for some of my previous 60 dollar specials:
What you can request:
Pick 1 of the following!-
- Your favorite character from whatever series [reference is nice! But i also can look up things too. ;D]
- Your character [I NEED your reference.]
- A portrait of you, your friend, family, etc. [photos please] No animals please! [However- this option is going to cost a bit more since doing these types of commissions during my last round of took more time than anticipated. Please add an extra $15 to your price if you’re choosing this option.]
The $30 Commission Package
Same as above, but a digital sketch. No color, but does include monochrome shading. You get a full resolution file to make prints. Same options for content. (Extra $5 for portrait of you/family etc.)
Please pay upfront as soon as possible. The sooner I get the money, the sooner I can put you on the list and get to your image.
You will be put on a list pending on how many people commission me on this special deal. Pending where you are on the list, you will either get the image in a few days or between 1 to 2 weeks after payment (due to high demand!).
What you will receive 2 jpegs of your image- one at 100% [full resolution as mentioned before- which can be a tif file if you want it that way] and the other at about roughly %25 the size of the original (jpeg for easy of use!). Original images are done at 300 dpi [aka standard high resolution] and measure out to be 8.5” x 11”. You have permission to make prints for yourself. [*See legal information at the bottom of the post for more details]
I only take PAYPAL. Sorry, but it does makes it easier. :)
Email me at ChandraFree@gmail.com with your description of what you want and we will go from there.
****PLEASE DO NOT SEND ME MONEY UNTIL I ACCEPT YOUR COMMISSION. I WILL TELL YOU MY PAYPAL INFO AFTER I HAVE ACCEPTED. ****
Thank you for your interest and thank you for helping me out!
*note- If you want a regular commission from me, I will accept them now. They are a bit more expensive (and take longer to do), but you have more options (full body, pose, designing a character for you, etc.) Please inquire if this is more interesting/geared towards the project you want from me.
- The copyright of the commissioned work is retained by the artist. I can reuse the image for my portfolios, sell them, and post online.
- These images are for your own personal use (non-commercial unless otherwise agreed upon), and not to be copied, reproduced or redistributed. This means you can use them as your avatars, print your own personal prints but you cannot sell them or put them on products, etc.
- Sorry, but no cancellations accepted once work on the picture has begun. Make sure you want/need your image from me!
