COMMISSIONS! (Kostmeyer need cash!)

Sun Sep 5, 2010, 3:16 PM

UPDATE: We're back in business for commissions! Yay! I can now accept payments through Paypal - the e mail address which you need to make a payment is kostmeyer@crankyoctopus.com Go on - you know you want it! :D

Here are my prices! Very reasonable I reckon (but then I'm slightly biased!)

Sketches: $16 / £10 / 12 Euros

Silk Spectre sketch by Kostmeyer Judge Dredd sketch by Kostmeyer

Inked: $32 / £20 / 25 Euros

The Dreamwolf by Kostmeyer Hawkgirl by Kostmeyer

Coloured: $63 / £40 / 50 Euros

Dragonlance: Sturm by Kostmeyer Firestar by Kostmeyer

Comic Pages: $95 / £60 / 70 Euros

Vigil vs Slaughter Gray by Kostmeyer SECRET WARS: Chapter 3.1 by Kostmeyer Centauri - page 2 by Kostmeyer

Prices are in american dollars, UK pounds and... uh... European Euros! I can't be bothered to keep looking at the exchange rate so depending on the state of the economy and what side of the pond you're on, you could be getting a deal here... maybe - it involves maths, so I'm not going there!

Prices are based on one or two figures in an A4 sized image - a comic strip or more complex image with loads of characters would be more expensive but feel free to make me an offer and we'll haggle!

Once again, I can only take payments through PAYPAL and use this address: kostmeyer@crankyoctopus.com

You can check out the pictures which I've already drawn as Commissioned Work in my gallery, here: kostmeyer.deviantart.com/galle…

OK - Act now, before you're killed in the rush! ;)

Sadly we stopped posting new content on Cranky Octopus a few years back (I think this is an old journal and still has the link at the bottom?) But I'm very proud of the stuff we did there - I'd welcome your comments when you've had a chance to read :)

any way to pay for a lineart, then pay the rest of the price to have it colored later? I want a colored piece, but can't pay over $50 USD at once...

Well, I can't pay until next week, but perhaps your rendition of either Tanook or Velociraptor, your choice unless you can do both on one deviation.

I'm on holiday for a few days, so I won't be able to start until the middle of next week anyway - but sounds fun - when you decide which one you want me to do and stick that along with any reference images you think would be useful in a note and I'll get started ASAP :)

so how much for a comic panel?

Kostmeyer Featured By Owner Dec 27, 2012
A full page? Well it depends what's in it! Have you seen the prices in my Commissions journal for single image stuff? What sort of price range is acceptable?

Sexyman663 Featured By Owner Dec 27, 2012
well I was wondering if you'd want to have vigil battle a Primal
Reply
:iconkostmeyer:
Kostmeyer Featured By Owner Dec 27, 2012
What I mean is, if you decide on what you want to happen in the battle, we can work out how many panels or how many pages it will take and work out the price from there. If it's a comic strip you'll probably need to think it through in a bit of detail.

Oh I see well I hate to sound arrogant but I don't think she'd win. Can she throw people into walls? I could imagine her doing a few good opening blows, specifically she should impale him to things if she can. I know Damien would hesitate his mother is very similar to vigil. If she could exploit that she'd have an edge. I defiantly would see her suit shattering at some point I suggest she guard her neck a lot.

Whether she wins or not is up to you if you're commissioning the story. But you need to provide a more detailed outline of what you have in mind before we can plan a comic page. If you just have a general outline and want me to plot and script it, you need to decide on who is involved, what you want to happen overall and - importantly - how many pages you want.

hmm this will need a bit of input of you as I don't know how well vigil is in combat but I need more time to think this out.

Happy to help - if you work out the general stuff you want to include I can certainly help out with the Vigil side :)

Hey Kost, are you open for commissions at the moment? I have a job, and I want some pretty things for my disgustingly pink walls.

Something you might enjoy drawing: An inked picture of Charybdis and Jansen being awesome/horrible. I'll post some refs of their new designs in an hour or two, but I'm still working on them.

If you're willing to take the commission then let me know what you'll charge for it, since it's two characters instead of just one I figure it'll be a bit more(I'd also happily pay extra for you to post me the original if you would do that).

:iconkostmeyer:
Kostmeyer Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2012
Yay! It'll be a pleasure! I'll do it for the standard inked and coloured charge, plus whatever the postage ends up being. Posted version will be black and white of course - I hand ink but computer colour.

Inveighed Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2012   Traditional Artist
I actually can't quite afford colour (I decided to go to Auckland next weekend for some reason). Would it be ok to just get an inked drawing? And should I send through payment now and then postage when you figure out what it'll be, or wait and send through both at the same time?
Reply
:iconkostmeyer:
Kostmeyer Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2012
That sounds about right - pay for the picture and then after I post it on DA, if you still want it we'll sort the postage afterwards.

Right, I uploaded the character designs: [link] I'll send through payment just now.

:iconkostmeyer:
Kostmeyer Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2012
Just saw them! OK - questions! I take it Charybdis is no longer in a spandex/wetsuit thing - is she still green? Second question - what kind of environment do they operate in? Third question - what do you want them doing? Standard superhero type pose or something more specific?

Standard price for a colour picture is fine - although I wouldn't send any money yet. I have two commissions to do and the 1DF tournament has deadlines! Oh yeah, and I work and have to fit in sleeping and eating! Send me a note if you still want the commission next month and I shall get to work :)

I just don't want you to send money and be disappointed by having to wait - but your characters are great and I look forward to being able to draw them when the schedule thins out a bit!

Just send me a note next month when you send the money, so I know to 'approve' it - and I'll get to work. I've kept the message with all the reference links in my inbox so I won't forget. :)

ooo ooo me! Me! Spitfire vs Eric Frizelli in all it's glory, colour and all, in the heat of battle, go wild with your imagination :D it probably started because Eric was drunk and tried his cheesy chat-up lines on her or something :lol: would you like money now or later?

Kostmeyer Featured By Owner Sep 7, 2010
That's a fun one - I'd love to do that! I'll need a link to some good reference material on Eric (I think I know what Spitfire looks like!) As for the money - I'd like it before I get started please - it will make me get on with it if I know you've paid (I am, largely, motivated by guilt!) :)

Marvellous! The money has appeared so I'll be starting it this weekend - can't promise when it will be done because I'll have to fit it in to my free time (and that seems to vanish pretty quickly!) but you shouldn't have too long to wait. I'm looking forward to drawing this one - thanks for the useful reference stuff!

I know we still have something under constructions and you're waiting for payment, right?

Well, I have something big going on right now, next to the comic I'm paying for. But it's a one-shot, so I think I can pay you next month at latest - maybe earlier :-)

I did a few rough sketches of Vigil and Blaze standing back to back - but I didn't get very far with anything - any chance of sending me the exact details of the commission again - if you still want it of course!

No rush on the money - I have a lot to do myself before I can get started on this anyway.
