(CLOSED) Artist for Hire!

#1 Post by Kimitsuzue » Sun Jul 28, 2013 9:57 am

IMPORTANT NOTICE: This commission thread is currently under heavy revision, as such, please do not count on the currently listed prices or policies until further notice. Thank you for your time and consideration; if you have any questions or comments feel free to email me at Kimitsuzue@gmail.com for the most up to date info on VN commission work.

Hello! I'm currently pursuing my bachelor's in 2D Animation and while I'm new to drawing for VNs specifically, I've had artist alley booths and been commissioned professionally in the past as well~ I'm mostly interested in short-term projects and concept development in more of an anime/manga style. I am able to do BGs, but my strength is in character design.

=====
PRICES
=====

Sprite Set (Waist/Thigh Up): $25
1. One Pose
2. One Outfit
3. 5 Expressions (Plus access to the PSD file to rearrange existing features to create additional expressions for just $5 more)

**The expression sheet here was made with only 3 brow sets (normal, raised, furrowed), 3 mouth sets (normal, "oh", big smile), 2 eyes (open, closed), and blush, so while I only export 5 expressions, the PSD would give you the power to make 20+ expressions from the "5 Expressions" that come with a sprite commission. If you have any questions, feel free to PM or email me. :)

*I am most comfortable with the style of coloring shown in the sample sprites here in my thread, but depending on the needs of your project I may be able to adapt my style as necessary.

Sprite Add-Ons
Outfit: $10-15 Expression Set (eyes, brows, & mouth): $5
Arm Pose: $7 Eyes, Brows, or Mouth: $2
Hair Style: $7 Blink Animation: $5
Hair Color: $2 PSD File: $5

Chibi
Full Body: $12-15
Thigh or Waist Up: $10
Bust Shot: $7

Chibi Add-Ons
Outfit: $7-10 Expression Set (eyes, brows, & mouth): $5
Arm Pose: $5 Eyes, Brows, or Mouth: $2
Hair Style: $5 Blink Animation: $5
Hair Color: $2 PSD File: $5

Event CGs and Backgrounds: $30-65
-Price is highly dependent on complexity
-BG will usually cost more than CG work
-Depending on the content, I may build a rough 3D model in maya to work from that you'll have free access to use as you please.

Props, Icons, & Other Graphic Elements
Logo: $20-30
Banners (static): $15-20
Item Icons (Normal & Hover): $3-7
Buttons (Normal & Hover): $3-5
-Email me for an estimate on Menus, text boxes, and other misc. graphic elements as prices vary greatly depending on complexity.

*(Note that prices are subject to change depending on complexity.)
*Please notify me before I begin work on the sprite if you would like any Add-Ons.
*Please notify of the project's scope (deadlines, how long/short, rough idea of how much artwork you plan to commission).
*If you commission in bulk ($100 or more), we can discuss special bonuses (extra expressions, color variations, etc.) to suit the needs of your project!
=====
PROCESS
=====
Inquiry
1. Contact me for an inquiry at Kimitsuzue@gmail.com or by PM. Include information on your project, such as the summary, project size, timeline/deadlines, and a list of what you would like to commission (sprites, chibi, CG, BG, GUI, etc.).
2. I'll reply to you within 72 hours to discuss the project and commission in further detail. :)
3. Once I have accepted your project proposal, please be ready with the following information to expedite the process...
-Short description or reference images for pose(s), hair style(s), and clothing style(s) needed
-Personality/attitude of the character
-Notify me if you plan to order any character Add-ons
-For CG/BG, please include a short description of the setting/scene, characters in the scene, and reference images (if any).

Payment
1. I only accept PayPal.
2. I require half payment before I begin working (may be done per sprite/CG/BG or as a package deal, whichever you are more comfortable with).

Work Process
1. Rough Sketch (1 free round of any changes)
2. Line Art
3. Flat Colors (1 free rounds of color changes)
4. Light/Shade/Paint
5. You'll receive a small, watermarked version of the final product.
6. After I receive your approval and the remaining payment for the commission via PayPal, I will send you the full sized/non-watermarked image(s) in whichever format you would like (JPEG, PNG, PSD, etc.) I can re-size the image as per your request (I work at a very large size to begin with, so there shouldn't be any issue with re-sizing). :)
*** (If you purchase the PSD file, I will also send that to you via email with any other exported versions of the finished work.)

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Before proceeding to consider me for commissions, I would like to note I am currently balancing other responsibilities and projects at this time. If your timeline is flexible, that would be ideal. Otherwise, feel free to contact me and I will take your commission into consideration depending on your deadline and project needs. I check my email frequently, so you can expect a reply within 72 hours or less~ :D


If you have any questions or are interested in working with me, feel free to comment, PM, or email me at: Kimitsuzue@gmail.com

Thank you for your time~
I look forward to working with you! :)

I love your art, and I am currently seeking for a CG artist (if you can).
If you're interested, please read this thread here.
Also, just to let you know, the kind of CGs will involve blood & violence.
Thank youu~

I absolutely love your style, and think it could be perfect for my project. Maybe you could take a look at my thread in this section(Archaelia is in the title) and let me know what you think? It's a long-term project, but my scheduling is really flexible, so maybe it would work for you.

Your art is simply beautiful. I am currently thinking about starting a project, which I’ll be needing an artist for. If I ever actually start the project, when I have more time on my hands, I might contact you if you’re still open. :)

Hi, Briannovon!

Prior to now, I'd actually never heard of Western Union! :shock: I'd be willing to consider accepting WU if I were being hired for a project requiring multiple commissions or if there are more people interested in that method of payment, though! :wink:

It's so hard to keep track of all my internet accounts as it is, haha! ^^;;

A commission in the Future?

#11 Post by briannavon » Fri Jan 10, 2014 3:44 am

OK. The reason is I want to commission you a couple months from now (as long as you have the same prices). What I wanted to know is if I could list ALL the art I will need from you and you give me a price, so that way during those months I can know how much to save.


(Also, this was supposed to be a note! Sorry about that...)

Sure! Definitely feel free to make a list of what you'd like to commission (please include a rough idea of your deadlines as well, if any). You can either PM me here on LemmaSoft or send an email to Kimitsuzue@gmail.com (the account is hooked up to my phone, so I get notifications). :)

Since you're contacting me in advance, my prices will be as it is currently listed here (even if they happen to change by the time you're ready to actually commission/pay, so no worries)! :wink:

I'll be looking forward to hearing more from you!

Bump~ I'm reopening commissions!! :wink:

My process, prices, and portfolio have been updated, so please read carefully! Note that, in particular, I've discontinued extra poses as an add-on. New poses are the equivalent to a new sprite now.

If you would like to commission anything that isn't listed here in the thread, feel free to contact me for any questions!

Don't have a job for you but just wanted to drop in and tell you that your art looks really good. Reminds me of some high quality disney type artwork. Good job!
