Probably a good idea to let those of you interested in commissions what my price list is. When I do a signing or a convention, I charge 100.00 for a black and white pen and ink sketch of a character. It's on nice Strathmore paper and usually will have some black colored pencil shading on it.
Sometimes, I take advance commissions for a couple of painted sketches if I have time to do them. Those prices are as follows for a black and white watercolor wash ,8 1/2 x 11 size, the price is 250.00. A full color one of the same size is 500.00. Those are on watercolor paper or a thick ply Strathmore ( I do Magic Trixie on that). I won't be able to do any painted commissions before this signing, but I have the space on my schedule for 2 more black and white ones. I usually scratch out some quick sketches in sharpie marker at the signings or 'make some magic for the people'-as sketch hound John Swanson calls it...but the commissioned pieces obviously get more time spent on them. I never hack anything out, but the advance ones get the good art supplies.
