Limited commissions are always open, this is the "official" journal I can link folks back to and this should answer some of the most common questions. Key word is limited, I work on these fairly slowly and on first come-first served basis. I only do one commission per every two weeks/month, depending on other things. Please try to have as concise an idea as possible with regards to the size and content of your commission before you even send the first note. I have two small children and lot of other things to do so I am not always able to check dA daily, please have patience.
Because I work in a traditional medium these are commissions for actual physical pieces, not just digital images. As such, I only accept paypal for online commissions and only from countries where postal service is somewhat reliable so I can actually mail your drawing to you. I normally use "Recorded Signed For" letter service (Royal Mail, UK), if you would prefer a courier service that is fine too but up to you to set up and pay for. I can work in pencils, ink, fine liners, watercolours or any combination of them (see my gallery for examples) and in any size from postcard to A3. Due to the flexibility of the medium I do not have set-in-stone price structure but to give you a rough idea, something simple with one or two characters on an A4 watercolour sheet would be around 40-50USD, anything more complicated, detailed, bigger etc. would go into the 100+USD range. I will include package (hard-backed envelope) and postage in the final quote.
If you're still interested, send me a note, talk to me about your idea, what you'd want to see and I'll let you know what can/can't be done. Do NOT send money until I say it's ok to do so and I'm ready to start work on your commission. If I agree to work on your commission that means for a brief period I work for you. I will send you sketches before tackling the final piece and I will do my best to understand your input and make changes you ask for where possible. And please do not be afraid to ask, even a simple thing like your favourite colour can make a big difference. Commissions are a two-way street.
I reserve the right to refuse a commission if it's in any way offensive or from a fandom I have absolutely no clue of unless you are willing to provide me sufficient research data to work from. This also applies to OCs, ships, OTPs, BBQs, WTFs, you know, anything that I might not know about. Please note I will not be reading 800-page fanfics, if it's a text description it needs to be brief. I reserve the right to post a watermarked version of your commission in my dA gallery/personal blog.
