Now you can bring your dreams and fantasies to life in a unique fantasy portrait custom painted just for you! Commission a fantasy portrait of yourself, your children, your family, or even a beloved pet. I will create a painting based on your concept, or you can leave the details up to me and see where my imagination takes you...
What you get - I offer two types of portraits. The first is a bust-style portrait, which is head and shoulders with a minimally detailed background. The second is a full body portrait with a fairly detailed background (example shown above). Bust portraits generally measure about 8x10" / 8x12" and full portraits are generally 11x14" / 12x18".
Price - My commission rates start at $300 for bust-style portraits, and $500 for full body portraits. These are base prices and can go up depending on complexity (additional figures, amount of detail, complexity of description, etc.). An exact quote will be given once you have provided me with a description of your portrait.
Payment - Payment will be made through Paypal. A 50% deposit is required upfront and the remainder is due when the piece is complete. You will be able to see a small preview of the work before you make the final payment. The price includes one revision. Additional revisions will be extra. There are no refunds once work has begun.
Delivery - Once full payment is received and the artwork is complete, I will mail you an archival quality print (one full size print plus shipping & handling is included in the price), and email a high resolution file of the painting, suitable for personal printing or other non-commercial use.
Photo Reference - You will need to provide at least one crisp clear high resolution photo reference for me to base your portrait on. If the reference is not high resolution I can use my imagination to make up the details, but the resemblance will not be as accurate or realistic as it would be with a high quality photo. More than one reference photo is definitely best. You will not be able to send your photo references via my comment form, so you can either link to them online, or once I reply to your comment you can send them to my email address. Please note that I will need to approve the photo reference prior to accepting any commission.
Time - The estimated time frame for completion depends on the complexity of the artwork, and my current work load. I have a very detailed style and it can sometimes take over a month to finish a commissioned painting if it is very complex. I will be able to give you a more accurate estimate of time when we have discussed what you would like. If you have a deadline please let me know.
Etc. - The style of artwork in my gallery is the style that I work in. Please do not request another style.
Copyright - Please note that copyright remains with the artist at all times. Your portrait may be used on my website, in print, and my portfolio unless you request otherwise. If you require publishing and printing rights please mention this to me as it will affect the price.
If this sounds like what you are looking for, please send me a detailed description of what you would like: general setting, color scheme, costume preferences, wing type, similar images from my gallery, etc., and we can get started!
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
