:dance: Commissions! :dance:

For a while I have been musing about doing commissions, 3D-art wise. Since I have improved greatly in my 3D art and am learning new things I finally decided to open some up.

How 3D Commissions Work

With 3D art, not everything is created from scratch. Some items are bought, including the figures themselves which must be manipulated to get the right look, both physically and aesthetically (for example, setting skin and eye settings, lighting, background). For my own artwork I cannot create my own clothing; everything must be bought or found. Same with the hair, skin, and if I wish it, buying shapes for a figure to get a particular face. All that being said, here is how I have set up commissions:

- I have quite a library of stuff within DAZ (which is the program I use) but perhaps not everything I'd need for someone's character. Any prices I will charge would not reflect the work put into it, but items bought to put the picture together. Items I would want to buy for a particular picture--say, a very nice ranger outfit for a female character, or a particular hairstyle for a male--will have to get pre-approval from someone before I buy it. I will pick stuff from my library if possible but some pieces I might not feel I have, so I would ask the commissioner, "What do you think about me using this?" If they really liked it, I would then buy the item, say it's $15.00. If that is the only item I bought and everything else (skin, hair, props, background) came from my own library, the picture's price would also be $15.00. However, the items bought would not be limited to that single picture use and I might use it again in my own renders.

- I would prefer render requests of a fantasy sort, as this is mostly what I have in my library. However I can and would do other pictures but depending on what's being asked for, I'd probably have to buy a few things for a particular piece.

- I would like to buy at least one item per commission, that way I get something from each one, whether it be really cheap or a bit more pricey. (It would depend on what I am asking the commissioner to buy, and if they'd like it). I would do my best to keep prices under $20-25. Keep in mind this is for more than one picture! So I think it's a great deal for me and a commissioner.

The good thing about requesting a 3D art piece is that the commissioner can also ask for more than one portrait--a close up, a full body, whatever they want. I would be happy to do multiple renderings of a character, in the same or multiple settings. You would not be limited to just one and I would do as many as you like (spaced out reasonably) whenever I have the time. Though setting up a first picture takes a little while, I have been using DAZ for five years so my timing is pretty good, and follow up pictures are usually quicker to do. Also, more than one character may be requested in a piece. Price would still only apply to items bought.

If interested please drop me a note!

Wow this is my first time doing a journal like this. I think it'll be fun though! So, I follow many great artists on dA and I'm happy people follow me, and everyone does a lot of fun community stuff.

Yea so let's get to it!! :la:

RULES (please read)

1. For the first 10 people who comment on this journal, I will feature one of their characters and comment my choice. (I will go to your gallery and pick one character, you don't need to tell me which one)
2. If you comment, please do the same in your journal, and put me in the first feature slot. The idea of this is not to get a free feature, it is to spread art around for everyone!


1. Siobhan68 with You are a monster by Siobhan68

Powerful pictures always catch my eye, and sketches most of all. His pose and expression are absolutely perfect. I really want to hug him! I also loved her picture "Moko".

2. Byakuya-Hisana-Rukia with Oromis Thrandurin by Byakuya-Hisana-Rukia

I really like the face, hair and armor on this one. The gaze looks pretty intense!

Slots 3 ~ 10 open!!

Let's have some fun!

Wow!! It is really nice Boxjelly! I can't believe you completed it so quickly. They look really cool! I like their poses. It came out excellent! ^o^

I'm so glad you like it!
^^; haha, honestly I don't know how, or why, I did it that fast either. But It's here!
Thank you, I'm really happy with the poses too. It's not always easy to make characters look like they either comfortable or dynamic in their setting, but I think that across pretty well here C:

And hooray! I'm really looking forward to seeing it!
