YOUR COMMISSION FOR REVIEW

EXTRA SERVICES

Additional Services

Style Mimicry: Did you want your commission to be done in a specific art style? Make sure to mention it in your request and I will do my best to accommodate. This will add a charge of 60% the cost of the price of the character to your order. So if you order a full body flat colored character commission which is $50, I will add a $30 style mimicry charge to your order. Style mimicry samples can be found HERE.

Erotic Content: Yes! I will accommodate these requests for an additional 60% of the character price. So if you order a full-body flat colored character which starts at $50, I will add a $30 NSFW charge to your order. There are some things I will not do so please feel free to ask about your idea! Worst I will do is say no and suggest other options. NSFW samples can be found
HERE.

 

Design Exploration: Don't have any reference images of your character and want help putting together a truly unique design? I will happily assist you in designing your character concept for an additional charge. We will work together to create a final design you can be proud of! This runs around $130 and includes the following:

 

  • 3 different thumbnails including the following:

          • 3 different hairstyles

          • 3 different silhouette poses

          • 3 different color/marking/clothing variations (choose 1)

  • 1 on 1 meeting with me to build an inspiration board to work from! This will be a 1 - 3 hour session as we look through Pinterest for inspiration!

Several discounts are available for you to take advantage of!

FULL ORDER DISCOUNTS:

Fanart Promo: If you are ordering a piece of fanart of any kind of movie/tv show/game, etc I will add a 5% discount to your order!

Artistic Freedom: On the order form you will notice a section for "artistic freedom". By giving me artistic freedom you choose the character, tier (bust, half-body, etc), the shading style, and whether or not the commission is NSFW then I take over from there and give you something truly unique to my imagination. By giving me this freedom you get 10% off on your order!

Return Customer: There are 3 tiers of return customer discounts. Once you have ordered 3 commissions from me you start getting 5% off on all your orders! At 6 commissions that goes up to 10%, and then 15% once you've reached 10 commissions!

Patreon Supporter: If you support me on Patreon at tier 2 or higher you can get up to 10% off of your order!


ITEM SPECIFIC DISCOUNTS:

Canary Character Feature: Did you want one of my characters in the image interacting with yours? If you choose which of my characters it is, the price of that character is discounted by 30%. If you let me choose which character it is, that goes up to 40% off the price of that character!

Multiple Character Discount: The first two characters in any given artwork are full price. However, each additional character after that gets 25% off their art price!

Animal Friend Discount: Animals you want featured in any piece of artwork that are not active characters also qualify for a discount. These creatures will not count as a second character in a piece and are not under the umbrella of the multiple character discount. However, Large animals get 25% off the full character price, Medium animals get 50% off the full character price, Small animals get 75% off the full character price, and Tiny animals get 85% off the full character price!

Extra fees you can incur on your order can be found here. Please be aware that whether your order falls under any of these categories is up to my discretion.

No References: If you do not have any visual references of any sort and only have a text description of your commission to offer me, this can add a 20%-30% fee to the full price of your commission depending on how much detail you provide and how specific you are being with your commission. I am very lenient with what I will accept for visual references so please talk to me about the options before settling on text only descriptions.

Complex Design: If the design of your character is overly complex, I will add a single charge to your invoice per complex character. This will be 60% of the character's price. So if you order an overly complex character full-body in flat-coloring, the price of your complex design fee will be an additional $30. This will vary by commission. This also applies for complex outfits and detailed armor. Each can incur its own fee but I will do my best to be fair.

Commercial work is handled differently than commissions. The prices here are not applicable for commercial work. For freelance inquiries please email me at gildedcanarydesigns[at]gmail.com
