Let's get you a ball park price


The chart below will give you an idea of how much your piece could cost.

Please remember that ornate weapons, jewelry, clothing/armor or elaborate settings and backgrounds are the stuff that make commissions more time consuming and, in turn, more expensive.

Remember also that every estimate is negotiable and there are many options available to alter a piece to fit your budget.

Time is the greatest factor in any commission. So the larger and more complex a piece is, the longer it will take to complete and the more expensive it will be. The same image done smaller with less “stuff” will take less time and will be less expensive.

Another factor is demand. I bring this up because the demand for Shivan Dragon has been intense. This is the major reason I have a 6 month backlog for my commissions. To get this under control, there is a premium on anything that includes Shivan Dragon. I use a sliding scale, like restaurants when they say “market price” for lobster on menus. The more bogged down I get, the more expensive the commission will be. Email me for pricing. I will eliminate the premium when the schedule allows.

Any commission over $300.00 can be paid in consecutive monthly installments. A bill of sale with everything spelled out will be sent and a Certificate of Authenticity is included with the art.  

Check the Commission Gallery to see what people have had done, and visit the Testimonials page to see reviews of their commissions.

SKETCHES OR PAINTINGS ON ARTISTS’ PROOF CARDS

Many of you have asked for sketches or paintings on the back of my Magic: the Gathering artists’ proof cards. I am happy to say that, thanks to Margaret Organ-Kean, I now use a primer that allows me to create these little gems.

When you send your cards to me, these commissions are $95 per card for a sketch or $350 per card for an oil painting. Because of demand, Shivan Dragon commissions on the back of proof cards are at least $125 per card for a sketch, or $450 per card for an oil painting, and this premium varies.

You can purchase a proof card along with the commission. Most proof cards are $150.00 ea. There is a volume discount of 10% for purchasing multiple sets of cards at the same time. The discount applies only to the cards, not to the artwork on the back. 

Let's say you ordered a set of Chronicles (3 cards in the set). You would get 10% off the cards for a total of $405 (3 x 150 - 10%). If you commissioned art on the backs of all three, the total would be $690 for pencil sketches, ($405 for the cards, plus $285 for sketches) or $1455 for oil paintings ($405 for the cards, plus $1050 for the paintings).

Go to the Proof card commission gallery for examples of these commissions.

Go to the Magic Artists’ Proof card list to see which proofs are still available.

Then Email me to get your Artists’ Proof card commission on the schedule.

Alters on your cards

Many of you have asked for alters on your Magic: the Gathering cards. Good news! I have finished my experiments, and I now offer this service.  

Because I paint in oils, these commissions take more preparation. I have to finalize the design before I begin so I can mask off everything but the section to be painted. Then multiple coats of the "primer" go down. 

Alter commissions on your cards are $375 per card. Because of demand, Shivan Dragon alters are $400 per card.

These are more expensive because they require extra time to produce.

Go to the Altered Card gallery. for examples of these commissions.

A popular alternative

Choose a fixed price or price range and I’ll adjust the content to that price.

For example, let's say the Elvan Spellcaster above is your character and you have about $200 to spend on a black and white piece.

I can do a very elaborate 8 x 10 inch piece with a full background and ornate tunic and jewelry; or a 9 x 12 inch with no background but with the same tunic and less jewelry; or a 14 x 18 inch with no background, a view from the waist up rather than a full figure, and a simpler tunic and jewelry design; or a 16 x 20 inch figure with a very simple tunic design and no jewelry at all. There are more variations than this of course but this should give you an idea of how to manipulate your cost.

Now let's take this same example of the Elvan Spellcaster and do the same process for a color piece. Let's say you have $750.00 – $875.00 to spend. 

I can do a very elaborate 8 x 10 inch piece with a full background and ornate tunic and jewelry; or a 9 x 12 inch with no background but with the same tunic and less jewelry; or a 14 x 18 inch with no background, a view from the waist up rather than a full figure and a simpler tunic and jewelry design; or a 16 x 20 inch figure with a very simple tunic design and no jewelry at all. 

So that should give you an idea of how much your commission will cost.
