Commissioning Me

I don’t want to sound too officious, but these are just a are just a few points I believe it is important to have clear before we get started on project.

1. I work mainly as an DIGITAL INKER and/or DIGITAL COLOURIST. What that means (in case you don't know what that is) is that I only ink and colour other peoples work most the time. I know how to pencil, and I will occasionally produce pencils or a digital painting, but it's just not really where my strengths are. Occasionally I can be solicited to produce DIGITAL PAINTINGs as well

2. I do not work for free, I just do not have the time for it. (Unless of course you have a widely recognised name in the industry, and a track record for success). The only stuff I colour for free is usually for practice over artwork that makes me drool.

3. I very, very rarely work for backend. Unless you meet all of the following criteria - your work is brilliantly written, the pencil work is superb, you have a rock solid business plan, you have a plan for production and distribution of the book, and you have contracts that are fair and make sense. In short, every element has to blow me away, or I can’t take the gig.

4. My page rate is set at fairly low rates given the amount of work that goes into inking/colouring/painting. This does not mean my rates are not negotiable (far from it), but keep in mind when you do want to negotiate that I have bills to pay and mouths to feed. You pay your mechanic to work on your car right, even if it's a "fun" project. My page rates are based around what makes my time worth while, it works out to be below minimum wage in the part of the world I live in. It doesn't mean that the rate isn't negotiable, but I need to be convinced by the team working on the project or the story or the artwork, because working for a lower page rate has to be something I enjoy working on.

5. I don't hand over the high res images until payment of said pages is complete, unless I've worked with you before and we've got a working relationship. I don't care if you have a deadline or need to get it to a printer before the con or whatever... no pay, no artwork.

6. I require a work agreement (contract) to be signed before I start work. I have sample contacts available (that are generic contract downloaded from artpact.com) to make this process easier.

7. I Work DIGITALLY this means there is no originals, and no postage involved, I email you the high res files once payment has been made. I do not require any original art work to start work - but I will require a sufficiently high res scan of the pencils/inks.

8. Please be specific in describing what you want. If you request adjustments beyond what was originally asked for, there may be further charges accrued.
