(1) Character Portraits are CLOSED (new option starts February!)

(2) Chibi Commissions are CLOSED (new slots in February!)

(3) Digital Painting Commissions are CLOSED (check back in February!)



For more examples, see my commission gallery!


MENU:



(1) Character Portrait $35 USD payable via PayPal or 3500 deviantART points Points


Stoick the Vast by TsaoShinThank You - 4K on Facebook! by TsaoShin

WHAT'S INCLUDED:

This is a new option so bear with me while I work out the kinks!

Character portraits are digital paintings of a single character bust (head, neck, and some chest) in a loose painted style on a simple background.  Only one character per portrait piece (ignore the Stitch and Night Fury babies in the examples ><)!  These commissions are an interpretation of your character realized in my style so the colors, style, and anatomy may change from your reference.

To keep costs low, I do not provide a draft or drawing updates with a portrait commission.  However, I may provide one if I have questions about the accuracy of your character.

All portrait commission pieces will not bear my signature unless requested.


PROCESS:

  • Watch me so that you can see when commissions are open! I announce this on my journal.
  • Send me a deviantART note with your request.
  • Be sure to include a character sheet, references, or descriptions of your character.
  • I will confirm your commission slot and send you my PayPal account information for payment (or send points via deviantART).
  • I will begin your drawing after I receive the payment (make sure you include your deviantART name in your PayPal payment if using this option).  I will send a note to inform you that I have received payment and an estimate on how long it will take me to deliver your final drawing. 
  • Once I am finished, I will upload the painting to my commission gallery and send you a note!

CHARACTER PORTRAIT COMMISSION FAQ:

Soon!


(2) Chibi Commissions - $50 USD payable via PayPal 


Sea Breeze by TsaoShinAether by TsaoShinRaichu by TsaoShinPonacho by TsaoShinKeLou by TsaoShin


WHAT'S INCLUDED:

Chibi commissions are digital paintings in my chibi style of a single character with a transparent background in PNG format.  These commissions are an interpretation of your character realized in my style so the colors, style, and anatomy may change from your reference.

In order to speed up the process, I typically do not provide a draft or drawing updates with a chibi commission.  However, I may provide one if I have questions about the pose or accuracy of your character.  If you require a draft, please make sure to request one but understand that it will add process time and delay a final product.

All chibi commission pieces will not bear my signature unless requested.


PROCESS:
  • Watch me so that you can see when chibi commissions are open! I announce this on my journal.
  • Send me a deviantART note with your request.
  • Be sure to include a character sheet, references, or descriptions of your character.
  • I will confirm your commission slot and send you my PayPal account information for payment.  Due to demand, if payment is not received within 2 days I will reopen the slot and remove your request.
  • I will begin your drawing after I receive the PayPal payment (make sure you include your deviantART name in your PayPal payment).  I will send a note to inform you that I have received payment and an estimate on how long it will take me to deliver your final drawing.  Typically, chibi commissions take 1-4 weeks depending on where your request is in the queue.
  • Once I am finished, I will upload the painting to my commission gallery and send you a note!

AVAILABILITY:

Due to demand, chibi commissions are open for a short amount of time until my queue is full (typically 10 slots).  Slots are available on a first come first served basis.  I make announcements when commissions are open on my journal.  Slots tend to fill within 6 hours.


CHIBI COMMISSION FAQ:

Q: Can I request more than one character?  Do you charge extra for props, pets, etc?
A: You can request more than one character but each one is $50.  Small props, pets, toys, etc are free.

Q: Do you draw humans?
A: Yes!

Q: Why are chibi commissions only open for such a short amount of time?  Can't I just request a chibi as a digital painting commission?
A:  I open slots when I have enough time between my personal work and my convention appearances and this doesn't happen often.  You're welcome to request a chibi as a digital painting but it will cost more since it includes the drafting process and a background.

Q: Why is the cost so high?
A: The cost is based on my hourly rate and demand.  I spend anywhere between 3-5 hours on a chibi.  They are not something that I rush through.  I treat each one with the same care and attention that I would give my personal work.  Completed chibi commissions are also fully released to my clients meaning that they can be built upon, used for promotion, printed, and even sold. 




(3) Digital Painting $150 - $200 USD payable via PayPal


OPTION 1 (LIGHT) $150:

What makes a digital painting light?  It fits these criteria:
  • 1-2 characters (not including props and pets)
  • Chibi style or simple design
  • Lower detail, less complexity
  • Simple background
$150 Light Style Examples 
Turtle and Squirrel by TsaoShinHoliday Mischief by TsaoShin
Cinbun by TsaoShin

OPTION 2 (COMPLEX) $200:
What makes a digital painting complex? It fits 1 or more of these criteria:
  • 3+ characters
  • Complex design or poses
  • Higher render complexity, more detail, or more realistic
  • Detailed background
  • Coat of Arms/Family Crests
$200 Complex Style Examples
Resting Under the Tree by TsaoShin
Stinson - Family Crest by TsaoShinAllied by TsaoShin
Dragon and Panther by TsaoShin


COST OPTIONS:

Unless you are doing a Coat of Arms or have 3+ characters in your commission, it is likely that you'll fall under the $150 range.  If you're unsure of the cost, please feel free to send me a note so we can talk about your idea and I can give you an accurate quote.

WHAT'S INCLUDED:

All digital painting commissions include the final high-resolution finished image in JPG, PNG, or TIF format.  The average size of a commission is 18x24 inches.  If you need a specific size, please let me know before I get started.

All digital painting commissions include my drafting process where you approve each step.  The final result is a product that we have worked on together.

All completed commission pieces will not bear my signature unless requested.

You may build upon, color, and alter any sketch or lineart you receive in your commission package.  You may also display the commission and versions of the commissions you have built upon in your personal gallery so long as credit is given to me as the original author of your image.

PROCESS:

Contact me via a note or email with your commission request.  Please be as accurate as possible about your needs.  It helps to include your own sketches and references.  You can ask me about commission cost and details even if my status says that I'm closed.

I will provide a pricing quote and finalize details.

Once payment is received, I will create a loose draft of your idea and provide a thumbnail.  This is the time to make the most dramatic changes and alterations if necessary (poses, setting, additions, etc).  

If no alterations are made, I will move on and provide a cleaned up version with loose colors.  This is the time to make minor alterations.  If any major changes are made at this point forward, it may incur additional fees.  

Once approved, I will finish the painting and provide one more thumbnail when I'm finished for final touch ups (very minor additions such as glows, color modification, background elements) before sending the final high-resolution version.

See some of the process thumbnails for other commissions:

Resting Under the Tree by TsaoShin Process: imgur.com/a/a4led
Allied by TsaoShin Process: imgur.com/a/DJPvI


PAYMENT DETAILS:

I accept payments through PayPal only.  Prices are in USD.

I will issue a full refund if I cancel your commission.

If you cancel a commission with me and work has been started, I will provide said work at its current stage of completion with no refund.  When you commission me, you are not only paying for a product but also to be placed into my schedule.

Payment is due after I send you a quote.  I will not start work until payment is made.


DIGITAL PAINTING COMMISSION FAQS:

Q: Why is there a big price jump from chibi commissions to digital painting commissions?
A: Digital painting commissions are projects.  You become my client rather than my customer.  None of my other commission options include the drafting and revising process that my digital painting commissions have.  I work extremely hard to create a finished product that we can both be proud of.  The price reflects the level of detail and time that goes into each of these pieces.

Q: What sort of things will you paint?
A: When commissioning me, remember to look at my gallery to see where my strengths are.  I prefer fantasy, animals, creatures, and organic elements.  Sci-fi, city scenes, mechanical, and robotics are my weaker topics so I may reject a commission of this nature especially if I feel that I will not do it justice.  Adult topics are acceptable if they are not disrespectful.

Q: How long does the commission take?
A: It all depends on how complex your commission is, where you are on the queue, and how quickly you respond to my draft approval requests.  The average completion time is 2 weeks.

Q: Can I get a print out of my commission?
A: If you pay shipping and handling you sure can.  I will also provide you the high resolution file so you're more than welcome to print it out at home!

Q: Can you do realism?  Can I commission a hyper realistic painting?
A: I can but you're asking me to work outside my current style so it might come out looking like pewp.  But hey, if you want to pay me to give it a shot I wont complain.



TERMS:

I reserve the right to decline or cancel any commission for any reason.

I retain the rights as the original author of your commission.  I may display the final product, drafts, and concepts included in the process of creating your commission as examples of my work in personal galleries including deviantART.  I will credit you as my commissioner and author of characters (where applicable) unless privacy is requested.

Total cost of a commission piece is based on the description of your needs.  Remember, you are buying my free time!  I could otherwise be out partying, playing games, saving Gotham, or hosting a cat party.

Your completed commission is completely yours to build upon, alter, change, etc.  You may do whatever you want with it!  If you intend to use the commission commercially and/or profit from it, you must sign agreements of release with me.

Thanks for your interest!

Hey, just one question.

If you get commissioned by people do you send out the digital painting or does it stay online? 
If you pay for shipping and handling would you send it to that said person or is it done online entirely?

Hi there, would love to contact you regarding getting a digital copy / file for print. I am a customer from the UK, so getting it printed over here would be more suitable =) What is best for you? Facebook / Email? Would love to speak to you as soon as possible & of course I am not expecting this to be free. Your art is beautiful & I would be happy to contribute a small amount via PayPal. The art will be framed in my apartment.
