Default size for traditional artworks is A4 and for digital artworks it's 2000x3000 px 300 dpi, apart from headshots - these will be done on A5 or 1000x1500 px.
For A5 apart from headshots, it's 2/3 the price. For A3, it's double the price.
Bookmarks default size is a little taller and narrower than A6.MEDIA
I work mostly with:
Koh-i-Noor watercolour pencils
Wacom Bamboo tablet
Gimp 2.8 for colours,
Paint Tool Sai for lineart.
RULES First sketch:
I know it's long, but there are probably all the answers you need To get general idea what I can draw or paint, look up my gallery. My fav themes are: people, fantasy, illustrations, fanarts, games, paysages, nature, animals, cityscapes. My fav styles are realism and semi-realism, I can also draw in manga style, though it's not my favourite.
In 1-2 weeks from accepting your commission, I'll show you first sketch. If the scene is complicated, I can think of more than just one sketch - if you'd like to choose from more than one, don't be shy to ask for it (even if you want just a halfbody of one person). Payment:
Required once you approve the final sketch (so think carefully before approving it, it's the last occassion to make major changes). It's up to you if you choose to cover the Paypal fee or send the money as a gift.
Work in progress:
I'll show you at least one WIP picture during the creative process, but if you'd like to get more or reverse - be surprised, that's absolutely no problem. Information about progress will be also visible on my profile page.
Of course you can ask for some minor changes if there's something you don't like about how's the artwork coming to life.
Finishing date depends on complexity, how many commissions I have and my free time. Approximately it's from 2 weeks to several months. Please tell me in advance
if you want your artwork to be finished on some specific date.
Art is not my only activity, apart from making art I also study on university so I might sometimes have delays with work because I have to study for exams. Please take it under consideration. Online publication:
By default I'll upload your commission in small size to dA before sending you the original, so tell me in advance
if you don't want me to upload it to DeviantArt or if you'd like to receive it before I do it.
By default I'll also put your name (and names of the characters) in the description, so also tell me if you (or your characters) would prefer to remain anonymous. Copyrights:
Personal use only, please - I would appreciate if you would not make commercial use of my work or if you need to, ask me if I don't mind and to estimate a royalty. I won't resell your commission as well. Refusal:
In case you want me to make something I don't feel comfortable with, please don't feel offended if I refuse.
I'm available online quite often - usually everyday I check my dA messages, though sometimes I might be not around for a while (when I'm on field research, vacation or conventions). I'll update this journal if I'm gonna be offline with information about my absence.

ART TRADES / REQUESTS About art trades: well, I prefer to make art trades either with my friends or artists that are around my level. XD but if you're nice to me and convince me smartly or I just like your idea then why not. Just ask ^^
I usually say "no" to requests. I make living from my art, so drawing/painting isn't something I usually do for free. On special occassion I can draw something as a gift, I'm often announcing kiribans so there are also opportunities to get something from me just for being around and supporting me.
Thanks for reading! I appreciate your interest in my commissions!
