COMMISSIONS WITH T.L.

Custom Art Information for Individuals

Custom art is the perfect gift for holidays, birthdays, graduations, and anniversaries! And, because T.L. does everything digitally, you're not paying an arm and a leg for expensive materials!

Art is a sometimes scary subject, but it has always been a goal of T.L.'s to make this process extremely accessible and easy with open door communication and quick responses to questions!

And lastly, this is an investment, but it doesn't have to feel that way! T.L. offers several different and negotiable payment plan options so you aren't thrown a huge bill all at once!

THE PROCESS

Guaranteed process for every commission!

1

SECURITY DEPOSIT & SKETCH

After receiving a Security Deposit (more info below), a digital sketch is always included during the commission process. This helps you, the client, get a better visual and a chance to request up to two free design updates!

2

INKING & COLORING

Once and only once the sketch has been approved will T.L. move forward with inking and coloring the agreed upon design. Once finished, a watermarked version (if there is still payment due) of the design will be shared for approval. One free design change is included at this stage.

3

PRINTING & SHIPPING

Finally, once the final payment is received, T.L. will always send you a watermark-free digital copy of the illustration that you can print yourself or we can print and mail it for you for just a small fee of $10 that covers the cost of museum-quality archival paper (will not fade), in-house printing, shipping materials, and USPS shipping costs.

BLACK-AND-WHITE vs. COLOR PRICING

  • All prices above are for black-and-white illustrations.
  • If you would like half color and half black-and-white, add $50 to the above breakdowns.
  • If you would like full color, add $100.
  • For example, you want a full color portrait of you and your husband: That's $175 (base single portrait, no background) + $25 (a second subject) + $100 (full color) = $300 total.

  • Why is it more expensive? Color takes more time to do so I'm budgeting for an extra hour+ worth of work. It is also more expensive to print. Meanwhile, black-and-white both takes significantly less time to draw and less expensive to print, so it's cheaper! Do let us know if you have any questions about this, we're always happy to discuss!

    PAYMENT PLANS

    Flexible Payment Options

    1

    25/25/50 PLAN (Most Common)

    Example: Your commission total is $200.
    Security Deposit* = $50
    Post Finalized Sketch = $50
    Post Final Approval = $100
    + Any optional additions (like printing/shipping fees or rush order fees).

    This is most common because it allows you the option to pay only once you approve of the design stages.

    2

    50/50 PLAN

    Example: Your commission total is $200.
    Security Deposit* = $100
    Post Final Approval = $100
    + Any optional additions (like printing/shipping fees or rush order fees).

    Pay half now, pay half later. Easy peasy.

    3

    100 PLAN

    Example: Your commission total is $200.
    Payment Upfront* = $200
    + Any optional additions (like printing/shipping fees or rush order fees).

    Pay 100% of the commission upfront. Refund requests are honored if commission is cancelled before finishing. Refund amount depends on the stage the commission is in (will breakdown similarly to 25/25/50 Plan.)

      * Security Deposit: $50 of security deposit is non-refundable. This covers 30 minutes of drawing or how long it usually takes to finish the preliminary sketch.
