I'm changing my commission policies and prices. The biggest change is that now i'm accepting money payments through paypal as well as points from the commissions widget. I will have to raise my prices as well, the reason is that I am now a college student and I need to pay for things like textbooks and school supplies. I am currently unemployed (I might have to temporarily stop sending out applications for jobs during the semester being a full time student and taking several very difficult courses) so this right now is my only way to make money. I know no one will be happy about raising my prices, but now that I need to pay for things the prices need to be raised out of necessity. I'm sorry if that's a serious inconvenience for you, but I also feel my work is worth more than 2$, I don't want to sell myself short. Prices will start moderately low, but I might raise them again in the distant further. I've never used paypal before so be patient with me while I figure it out. :blush: I can be a slow learner. I'm still open for point commissions and my commission widget will still be open. The prices might seem high, but they're really not. This is what irritates me about the point system. 100 points=1 US Dollar. Don't be alarmed by what might seem like a very sudden increase. It's really not that high. 
Sorry again for any inconveniences. 
On a cheerier note, I've opened my printshop! :dummy:

If you have nay questions note me!

Personal Quote: "Now, that would be telling, wouldn't it?"

:bulletred: If I wish to give a thanks or kindness to someone I will give them a drawing of some kind. I implore that you do NOT ask for a gift. (then it's not a gift then is it?)
Paypal Stamp by artist4comI ACCEPT POINTS COMMISSIONS by fordonia
:bulletred: Point commissions open!
:bulletred: All real money that I earn with commissions are going toward my college fund!:squee:
:bulletred: I'm always open to requests from my real friends in real life. ;)
:bulletpurple: Frequently asked Questions :bulletpurple:
:bulletblue: What art program do you use?
:bulletgreen: Photoshop cs6
:bulletblue: What kind of tablet do you have?
:bulletgreen: Intous 4

:bulletblue: What is your favorite kind of art?
:bulletgreen: Digital, but I respect and admire all forms of art.
:bulletblue: When will you open commissions?
:bulletgreen: Open. :)
:bulletblue: Why are your world map and planet commission so much more expensive than your paintings?
:bulletgreen: My space related art is more expensive because I don't paint my planets, I render them using textures and photoshop filters. Creating a believable world map and planet takes a lot more time and a lot more work.
:bulletblue: Can you create reference sheets for my characters?
:bulletgreen: Yes. The price is the same as the "character colored and shaded" option on my commissions. 15$ for a reference sheet. I don't yet have an example ready, but I will soon.
:bulletblue: What can I do with a background commission?
:bulletgreen: I offer background commissions for you to use as a background for a piece you are working on, as a paid collaboration if you will. It can be a stand alone landscape piece if you desire. I can do backgrounds for comics or other projects as well. Prices can be negotiated for those instances.
:bulletred:Please read the information below before asking any questions! :bulletred:

If you are interested note me with your username, email and what you would like. You may either pay the full price through the commissions app or through a gift to me, whichever is easier. If you cannot pay the full price right away you may pay half of the full price after the thumbnail. However, you MUST pay the second half before I show you the finished full resolution image, if you do not then I cannot give you your final product. Please tell me if you're having trouble getting the points or money for the commission, I can wait and hold your commission while you get the rest of the points or money or we can negotiate a lower price if something comes up unexpectedly and you can no longer pay the full price, point prices however will NOT go below 100 points, my work is worth more than a dollar. The image can be used as you like, but cannot be;
:bulletred: reposted and claimed as your own
:bulletred: signature cannot be altered or erased
:bulletred: resold for profit
:bulletred: Due credit must be given for the artwork
Unsure? Feel free to note me!
interested? Note me!

:bulletblack: Point prices are based on the DeviantART point system. 100 points = 1$. Prices are negotiable depending on complexity and addition of characters. The more complex the image, the higher the cost. I will not lower my prices simply upon request however, my work is worth more than a dollar.
:bulletpurple: IMPORTANT: there is a difference between wanting a drawing of an invented creature and a creature design reference sheet. A creature design reference sheet is a scientific illustration, a painting with basic information on the creatures diet, habitat, and behavior and well as a scale reference with an added more detailed description of the creature in the images description. There is typically no background, and it is a profile image.
A creature design reference sheet is different from you original character who happens to be a fantasy creature. The creature design reference sheet is an image and description of what the SPECIES AS A WHOLE look and behave like, not of an individual. And no jewelry, trinkets, scars or characteristics of an individual unless it's part of the creatures anatomy.
The creature design reference sheet is meant to be REALISTIC. As in, it should look plausible, as though the creature could exist in reality. There are modifications of course, but the goal is for me to bring to life a plausible looking animal.
