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, OR, specifically requests for Avatar fan art (like OCs). 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 (and this would add to the commission charge).

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. Also, more than one character may be requested in a piece.

If interested please drop me a note!

Chapter 6 : Uniltiranyu

Fri May 27, 2016, 4:32 AM
Pages 1 & 2 of Chapter six on my Avatar/Pandora comic are up! :la:…

Well, the first page was up for a while before going on my little hiatus, but now page 2 is up as well, and I will be resuming a pace that is only delayed by how fast I can set up scenes and render. Back in full swing!

I hope you all enjoy it! :D

Thank you very much! My Avatar art only recently started to expand beyond Na'vi, so you came at a good time LOL.

Do you do free requests?
DrowElfMorwen Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Generally I do not, sorry. Especially if it is character creation, because it takes a long time to do.
