Hey everyone,

How's everybody doing?.  I plan on taking some commissions if I can before school starts back in January, and anything after April. Also, if you live nearby where I live, that would also help because I do not have a Paypal account, just am not that familiar with the whole thing, so if you live nearby, I will definitely do the pieces if I have the time, and meet up when I am finished with the pieces. So what you all been waiting for, here are my prices and info regarding my commissions. Also these prices and info only apply to my comic illustration. Also I do not mind drawing your original characters or characters that are known everywhere.

11x14-Single Character Sketch

Head Sketch-$20 line-art in pencil($5 extra for pencil rendered, $10 extra for line art done in ink, $15 extra for illustration rendered in ink, $20 extra for selective colour, $25 extra for full-colour, $10 extra for simple background, $20 extra for complex background, $10 extra for another character)    

Bust Sketch-$25 line-art in pencil($10 extra for pencil rendered, $15 extra for line art done in ink, $20 extra for illustration rendered in ink, $25 extra for selective colour, $30 extra for full-colour, $15 extra for simple background, $25 extra for complex background, $15 extra for another character)

Full-Figured Sketch-$30 line-art in pencil($15 extra for pencil rendered, $20 extra for line art done in ink, $25 extra for illustration rendered in ink, $30 extra for selective colour, $35 extra for full-colour, $20 extra for simple background, $30 extra for complex background, $20 extra for another character)

Other extra costs

$5 extra for every time you would like to upgrade to a bigger size

Usually I work bigger, but I have been working mainly on 11x14 on my last couple of pieces, so I thought that is where I should start at and work my way up to bigger size. If you are interested and live nearby, then just give me a shout and I will see what I can do. Alright, sound good. Looking forward to hearing from you guys soon. Thanks. From I77ustrat1v3mind.

Hey there!

Thanks for watching me, it's an honour to be paid such a compliment from such a talented hand. Allow me to return the courtesy! ^^
Oh hey! I know you!

Lies and slander Xp

You are very welcome, I actually saw your stuff at the VCA grad show and asked my friend Timyxoara(Thelma)who did these pieces because I think your artwork is pretty awesome, especially your storytelling skills,I definitely saw the makings of an Illustrator,so I asked Timyxoara if you planned on applying to Illustration, and i thought i heard her say yes, but i could be wrong, so I am asking you, are you applying at all. Timyxoara told me and i was intrigued to look at the rest of your artwork, and I was not disappointed. I did not have a piece of paper on me at the show to write down your da name down, so she gave me your da name through da instead, and then I just added you right away because I just thought you were extremely talented, so yeah no worries. Thanks for the add and the kind words, I truly appreciate it. Thanks again.

Oh yes, Thelma. It's funny because I met her through dA first. XD
I am very touched that you would go through so much trouble to look at my art! :hug:

As for illustration, sadly no. I have never applied for the other Sheridan programs, actually ^^;
Originally I wanted to go to Mohawk and do a comic program for a year, but I'm reasonably certain the program doesn't exist anymore.
My reasoning for not just applying to other programs after that is that I'm out of money and I would rather not be in school all the way through my twenties. So now I'm off to try my hand at being an adult for a while. XD
How about you, do you have higher program aspirations?

Yeah I know Thelma from the VCA program at Sheridan College because we attended the program together for those three years(2008-2011), but all in total, we known each other for about 5-6 years now, I believe, but yeah I knew her first from the program and then after that, we started to become really great friends and have been chatting on da ever since. Oh it's not a problem, don't worry about it, I usually go through all the trouble with other artists that I like as well, so you are not the only one:).

That's alright, plus the reason I asked is because your style is very illustrative, I believe though you will be a successful illustrator all on your own anyways, there is no need for more schooling, if it is not needed, just have to practice your craft every day that's all. yeah I was thinking about doing the comic program, instead of my 3rd year of VCA ,but that of course,got cancelled after I believe one year because they did not have enough people to fill up seats,so I took 3rd year of VCA, but still would have preferred doing the comic program because it is eventually what I want to get into, but yeah no regrets, even though there were a tons of things wrong with 3rd year VCA. Yeah, that is totally understandable.
Well I got into the Illustration program this year after 5 years of trying, so I start in the fall, and I absolutely cannot wait to start this program because this is what I have been waiting for since the first year that I applied, so yeah the anticipation is getting to me a bit. Please give me a holler. Peace out.
