I am accepting illustration commissions. All work is digital and will be delivered by email or uploaded to the cloud. I take payment via PayPal. Contact me through the contact form karenbjones.com/send-me-a-note…
on my website.
Prices vary a lot depending on subject, style, and detail. Ask me for a bid to get a solid price. However, this is roughly how I calculate prices:
A line drawing of one isolated character: $20
More characters: $10/ea
Shading/Highlights (ink wash, soft, or cel shading): $10
Color (flat or mimicking traditional techniques): $20
Minimal background: $10
Detailed background: $20 - $75
Make it a vector drawing: +50%
If there are more than a couple characters, the price for color and/or shading may be more.
To use the samples above as examples the full-sized version of the fairy would be $40, the girl would be $60, the bird would be $50 but is so simple I'd probably bring it down to $30, and the mouse would be $100.
I also do larger projects, like coloring books, comic books, or picture books. Contact me for pricing on those.
Print rights can be negotiated, but generally I retain copyrights and the clients get limited print rights.
I will do fanart, but if it's something I'm not familiar with you will have to supply references. I will do caricature portraits, but I will need several photo references if you want the caricature to look like the actual subject. I don't usually do NSFW content, but if it isn't explicit I might consider it.
