    Artist commission-reference thread

    YEAH! Is this something that the artists and fans on this board is interested in? =)

    I was thinking that this would really, really make things easy for those of us that would be interested in commissions, as it could give a great overview on different types of artists.

    What kind of art they do, where they are at in their artistic evolution at the moment ( fan, semi-pro, pro, etc), and what their current going rates are.

    I know this might not be something that some artists would like to divulge, or maybe it's even against forum rules ( I don't see why it would be tho? It seems like a logical service to the fans.)

    Here we go, the list of artists of the .org:

    Name: Emiliano Santalucia (Emiliano)
    Status: Super-Pro - active, taking commissions.
    Rate: Single character sketch -
    Multiple character sketch -
    Full comic page, multiple characters background -
    Add another __ for inking, and __ for inking + colouring.
    Example:

    EDIT1: Sad to hear it, Munkyboy. =( I'd love to add you to a real list tho. Can't you perhaps consider appearing in the inactive roster? =) I mean, it'd still be cool to have you referenced, and when you are active once more, I could change your status.

    EDIT2: I've added some more fan-fav's to the list guys. Pretty good selection of example-artwork too, don't you think? =) Man... I wish someone would tell me if they think this is a cool idea... I think it's a really good one, myself.

    This is a good idea, however I'd get the actual prices on the list there, or else the numbers (even with the disclaimer) might really put people off before they give the thread a chance.

    I personally have enjoyed commissions from 2-Bad, Royaltus1 and SHA . They are professional, creative, patient, cooperative, and priced very well for the average joe.

    Each of them have helped me to achieve many of my fan related goals.

    Seriously. I did not and will not read the wall of text before the artist samples.

    You need to get those prices off there now as my jaw dropped.

    As the disclaimer does not have the desired effect, I will remove it, (and unsolicited mock-up prices) to create a more kosher list.

    Baena, may I have your prices please, Sir? Pretty please? With sugar on top? ^^

    EDIT: Just made the changes. Anybody else care to join up for the list, now that it's better?

    BULUUUN! You MUST reveal your rates to us! I will add you to the list in the meanwhile.

    People can PM me for prices. I'd rather they not be public.
    They've always known that.

    While I appreciate the free advertising, there are some things that need to remain between myself and potential clients.

    does it have to be drawings, i've had a few people on other boards aspect me about photographic prints, including MOTU based shots
    And so I walk, into the searing light which banishes all darkness, surrendering my face and form to atoms of dust, seeking the true darkness of peace,the cool shadows of eternity and the unknown fate of nothingness

    Well, I guess it doesn't actually have to be just drawings/paintings/3D schtuff. I'll add you if you want to be in on the list, Ultimate. Maybe a suitably dramatic action-figure shot? I think you did a few of those, right?

    If this is becoming more "real" then mark me as "currently unavailable for commissions".

    I'm an active illustrator, but currently too busy to take on commissions at the moment.

    Thanks.

    Yah', it's becoming more real, Baena. And I think it's great.

    I'd like to add you to the inactive roster, since this post is all about commission-activity, and not about the other artistic activities that many artists are often engaged in. What do you think about this compromise:

    "Inactive ( too busy with day-job)"

    That sound good to you? It's mostly just to sort of keep a kind of regular format to the entries, nothing more.

    Also... I've ran out of images to display the art-examples... I'm above the 10-image limit. ( cudos for upping the limit from 5 btw) Usually when I do a thread like this, I just do another post right below the first one, with more images, but that's not possible now... Any mods have any ideas? I could change some of the inactive guys to just having a link, but that's just a short-term solution, soon enough the list could very well explode with artists.

    That's totally ok, Nightwing! I'll add you up to the list as soon as I can. When did you go pro btw, man?? Gotta' say, congrats'!

    EDIT: Carlos, I'm about to add you to the list, but your rates aren't visible. Do you think you could type them out in plain text? I'll add them ASAP, if you do.

    EDIT2: No problemo, Carlos. I got the rates straight off your DA account instead.

    I just thought it was a better piece. It's got more background details ( even a bit of foreground), it's got a bit of likeness in it even. And, it's newer.

    I figure this gives a better idea to your potential clients of just exactly what you're capable of.
