COMMISSIONS 2013

Journal Entry: Fri Oct 26, 2012, 10:45 AM


COMMISSIONS ARE CLOSED at the moment, prices are NOT up-to-date (will update soon)! 

IMPORANT! From September 2013, prices of my work will be raised. Current prices apply to all commissions ordered, confirmed and paid til the end of August 2013.


:bulletpurple: IMPORTANT! Please read and note the statements in the bottom of this journal before commissioning me.


I usually work in 5 portrait categories, I will list them below with all the additional information you want to know to decide what works the best for you. When you order a portrait, you will receive the original (see "Shipping" below) painted / drawn on an artist quality paper (I work with Arches, Fabriano, Canson and Hahnemuhle). Paints I use are Schmincke Horadam (artist quality), Ecoline, Winsor & Newton inks and Copic Multiliners. You will also receive a digital print version of your portrait in high resolution, no matter what size of the original you've ordered.


1. WATERCOLOR / MIXED MEDIA PORTRAIT


:bulletblue: Colorful, full background portraits (shoulders and up). I like to use bold colors and mixed media textures to create semi-abstract styling.

Portrait of deviant: Diva, Speed painting video by jane-beataPortrait of deviant: Secret sunrise by jane-beataTimebomb, watercolor portrait speed painting by jane-beata

small                      40 $ / 30 / 26 / 770 CZK            (+ 10% of the price for every additional person)*
medium                  54 $ / 40 / 34 / 1.020 CZK            (+ 12% of the price for every additional person)
large                      74 $ / 55 / 47 / 1.400 CZK         (+ 15% of the price for every additional person)
extra large             105 $ / 78 / 67 / 1.990 CZK         (+ 20% of the price for every additional person)

* This means that if you order a portrait of a couple from the 40$ portrait category, you will pay 40$ + 10% =  44$.

2. WATERCOLOR / MIXED MEDIA STYLIZED PORTRAIT


:bulletblue: Colorful, full background portraits (shoulders and up) stylized with other elements (such as birds, butterflies, flowers, whatever you want!)

small                      54 $ / 40 / 34 / 1.020 CZK            (+ 24% of the price for every additional person)
medium                  67 $ / 50 / 43 / 1.275 CZK            (+ 26% of the price for every additional person)
large                      91 $ / 68 / 58 / 1.734 CZK         (+ 28% of the price for every additional person)
extra large             132 $ / 98 / 84 / 2.500 CZK         (+ 30% of the price for every additional person)

3. CHARCOAL / SEPIA / GRAPHITE / PENCIL PORTRAIT


:bulletblue: Monochromatic portraits drawn either with charcoal, sepia, graphite or pencil - not necessarily B&W, you can pick a color you want your portrait to be drawn in. Drawing takes more time than watercoloring, however the risk of messing up the painting and having to start over is very low compare to my first and second category.

medium                  54 $ / 40 / 34 / 1.020 CZK            (+ 12% of the price for every additional person)
large                      74 $ / 55 / 47 / 1.400 CZK         (+ 15% of the price for every additional person)
extra large             105 $ / 78 / 67 / 1.990 CZK         (+ 20% of the price for every additional person)

4. WATERCOLOR / MIXED MEDIA EYE STUDY


:bulletblue: Yes, eye study.  I've had these requests before, quite a few. The point is to paint your own eyes (referenced) my way - you choose coloring if you wish.

small                      34 $ / 25 / 21 / 640 CZK

large                      67 $ / 50 / 43 / 1.275 CZK        
extra large             99 $ / 73 / 63 / 1.870 CZK         

5. CHARCOAL / SEPIA / GRAPHITE / PENCIL EYE STUDY


:bulletblue: Again your own eyes or eyes of someone you want to remember, drawn in charcoal, sepia, graphite or pencil. Quoting 3rd category, not necessarily B&W, you can pick a color you want your eyes to be drawn in.

PAYMENT


I only accept Paypal transactions*. Don't have Paypal account? Create one for free, it's highly possible you will need one eventually anyway.

I accept payment in advance, after I confirm your order, for orders 40$+ you can pay half the price in advance and the rest upon completion - whatever you chose.

:bulletred:If for any reason I can't finish your commission, you will get a full refund.
:bulletred:If for any reason I miss the deadline we agreed upon by 1-3 days, you'll get refunded 20% of the price you've paid.

If you are from Czech or Slovak Republic, we can agree otherwise.


SHIPPING worldwide


small                           4 $ / 3 / 2.7     
medium + large           6.4 $ / 5 / 4
extra large                  8.9 $ / 7 / 6


Shipping time varies from 3-5 working days (Europe Union) to 5-10 working days for the rest of the world. Package will be dispatched as a registered mail and you will receive a tracking number to be able to check your package status over the internet (please note that not every country provides this service properly).



IN HOW LONG WILL I HAVE MY PORTRAIT DONE?


The soonest I can start working on your portrait is after I receive the references and the payment. Standard time I take to finish from this moment is 2 weeks - it depends on my current situation, how much work I have, sometimes I finish sooner.



SPECIAL REQUESTS


:bulletblue: HIGH PRIORITY - Portrait finished within 3 days after I receive the full payment             + 20 % of your final price
:bulletblue: WALKTHROUGH / step by step - You can request a documentation ("walkthrough") of the whole process or a more detailed tutorial *
:bulletblue: VIDEO - You can request a video of your portrait's realization *
:bulletblue: PRODUCT DESIGN - contact me with a brief explanation of what you are looking for

* price is negotiable, but these are special requests that will generally cost a day or two of my constant work.



WHAT I DON'T DO - just to be clear


:bulletblack: fan art
:bulletblack: fantasy (dragons, warriors, weapons, etc)
:bulletblack: x rated stuff



:thumbsup: HOW TO ORDER



:bulletpurple: Look around, find out what you're looking for & note or email me (janebeata.2012@gmail.com) - subject "Commission" please.
:bulletpurple: Provide info such as:

- Your full name, shipping address, paypal account (that's usually your registration email)
- Portrait style / technique (examples are in the top of this journal, 1-5 groups)
- Size (small, medium, large or extra large - write also if you want the regular size or square)
- Coloring you'd prefer, you can list links to my already made portraits to make your vision clear to me
- Special requests if you have any (see "Special Requests" section above)
- Link or attach REFERENCE pictures (preferable MORE than 1, in higher resolution - it doesn't have to be a print size, but please avoid sending me 300 pix blurry/grained cell-phone pictures)

I will answer your note often within a day.

IMPORTANT:
:bulletred: I have only space to take up to a few commissions per month. When you note me, I'll reserve you a slot but in general people that have already paid take priority.





:thumbsup: SPECIAL OFFER


Taking up on my special offer, you won't receive the original painting, only digital print, but you get to pick coloring and style (see 5 styles in the top of this journal). I will work traditionally, but on a small format to push the budget down.

Price for this category is  4000 DA points (See Commission widget on my wall).

STATEMENT

! Portraits are made for personal purposes, not for commercial use (such as CD/book covers, product design etc), unless otherwise stated / written permission given. Even after purchasing original of my work, you are not allowed to redistribute it, change my signature, sell it as a print etc. If you want a commission of another type, note me with details.

! I reserve the right to display my work in my online portfolio/gallery/fan pages. If you don't wish the portrait you are ordering to be displayed, please notify me of this request ahead of time.

! I reserve the right to decline a commission for any reason. If I accept your commission request and you are not satisfied with the final result, I will keep on working until you are.  Believe me, nobody wants an unhappy customer. Yet, keep in mind that commissioning me doesn't make me your slave ;)

! Before you order a commission from me, take my personal style into consideration. It might seem obvious, but the finished portrait will be most likely painted in a similar spirit than those I've displayed.

! Keep in mind that different monitors can present coloring slightly differently and that an original painting always feels a little different than a digital file.

! Portraits can be a very original and pleasant present for family and friends, a memory that remains. Take an advice upon how to take care of  your artwork, have it properly framed (behind glass is the best) and avoid displaying it on places with direct sunlight.

! Final price you are paying for a work from me isn't by far a payment for my time. It also includes material, transaction fees, handling & packaging, original idea, etc. Portraying people is a very personal thing for me and I put a lot of thought, time and effort into each piece. By commissioning me or buying any of my original works, you are supporting my further development as an artist, which I am very thankful for.



Don't want a portrait of yourself but rather purchase an original painting?

Basically I would like you to paint in your watercolour style a portrait of my wife. I will give you as many photos as you need, and I would like an A3 size portrait done with your artistic flair. I plan to frame it in our home.

After we agree on price, when can you start and finish?
