COMMISSION RATES AND GUIDELINES
Hello! Thank you for your interest in obtaining a commission from me! I've
endeavored here to create a comprehensive list of prices for commission
work. I base my prices on the size of the work, the number of characters,
the complexity of layout and the estimated time it will take me to complete
them. I will strive to give you the highest quality of work that I can in
exchange for a fair compensation of time spent.
I may miss something in these descriptions, so if you have a question,
please let me know.

Simple backgrounds will be put in as a matter of course, unless you request
no background. Of course, if you request a really challenging and complex
background, that would have to be factored into the total cost, and will be
different in each case.
I do small, thumbnail sized sketches of my pieces that I will e-mail
to you for approval before going to the final piece.
GUIDELINES- I'm mostly known for doing
commissions in the classic silver age Marvel style, but I enjoy doing as
many different styles as possible. If I'm not familiar with a character or
title, just e-mail me some reference material. Some things I won't do
include nudes or themes that are sexual in nature and I also am not
interested in doing anything with extreme blood and gore in it, or anything
that glorifies evil. Call me a prude or old-fashioned, but that's my
guidelines, and I'm stickin' to 'em! Actually, I'm a father of 4 children,
and have made a promise to never work on anything that I wouldn't show my
kids. Tame cheesecake pictures and wild Kirbyesque action is fine- in fact,
that's what I like to do. I'm just talking about "EXTREME requests" here.
Gotta cover all the bases!
Again, thanks for your interest. I hope we can work together on something!
