UPDATE! Commissions are closed for the next few months while I work through my backlog! I'll announce when you can start putting in orders as soon as I have time again.
Like what you see on the site? Want a custom sculpt (anything from keychain/tabletop miniature on up to a full 1/6th scale figure)? Then good news, everyone! I'm opening myself up for commissions, so drop me a line with what you're looking for and I'll help you make it happen.
Some ground rules:
I won't imitate/recreate another sculptor's work. If you want it, go support the original artist .
Try to keep it PG-13. I don't mind sculpting nudes, anatomy reference, and the like, but please no porn. I like being able to put these commissions in my portfolio to send to prospective clients/studios, so if you want me to sculpt something that I feel is not "portfolio safe" then I will charge you significantly more than a normal commission (call it a NSFW Tax). Things beyond the pale (even outside of NSFW Tax) will not even be considered.
Like another Deviant's 2D work? Want to see it in 3D? I'm game for just about anything, but I will require that artist's permission first (I can ask if you don't feel comfortable doing so). This will likely involve an increased cost as well, because that other artist will need compensation for their intellectual property. For example, if you want one of 's awesome characters in 3D, you or I will have to get his permission before anything else is done (using him as an example both because I love his comics and because I've never seen his characters in 3D).
Payment is due in two installments; half up front and half upon completion (prior to shipment). The half up front is to deter those not serious about ordering a commission, and to cover material costs. The half upon completion ensures I get paid in full. Having been "dine and dashed" before, this rule is non-negotiable. Once I begin work, the first payment is non-refundable.
Standard Operating Procedure:
I will respond to everyone's request, regardless of whether or not it is a yes/no on being able to accept your commission. If I don't get back to you within a couple days it does not mean I'm ignoring you. It simply means I'm swamped, and will get back to you as soon as it is physically possible for me to do so.
You'll be aware of and agree to, in writing (email), the full cost of the sculpt (and given a ball-park on shipping) prior to me beginning work.
I will send you progress shots throughout the process, both for your approval and your feedback. I want to make sure you're getting what you want!
Once the sculpt is finished, and the second half of the payment is received, I will ship it to you within 1 business day.
Base Pricing (not including shipping or additions):
Miniature (2" max).
$15-$50, depending on the request. The less detail required, the less it will cost.
Bust/Portrait (4", with costs increasing with the size of the sculpt)
Cartoony (Furry/MLP/Etc.) - $75.
Life-like (humans, realistic animals, etc.) - $125.
Full Figure - 1:6 scale, so 7-12 inches depending on the character, with costs increasing with size. The Incredible Hulk would obviously cost more than Spike from MLP.
Cartoony (Furry/MLP/Humans from something stylized like Avatar or Archer) - $150.
Life-like (anatomy reference) - $300.
Likeness – Handled on a case-by-case basis. If you want a likeness of an actor/actress from [insert movie], expect to spend $500+ plus materials. Likenesses are difficult, take a long time to both research and execute, and cost quite a bit as a result. The added materials cost is for 3D printing (it's easier for me to work digitally when trying to reproduce a likeness).
Anything larger than 1:6 scale.
Handled on a case-by-case basis. Even for a cartoonish sculpt expect to spend more than a 1:6 likeness.
Any additions (wings, weapons, clothing, base, etc.) will cost you more than the above-mentioned base price.
All prices will be worked out prior to beginning work on your sculpt.
- I ship USPS Priority Mail based on weight, and charge for any packaging/padding I need to send your object in.
