Amazondra 2011 sketch

A few years ago I had started art for an alphabet book, and even completed it.  By the end of it though, I wasn't completely satisfied mainly because I had lost enjoyment of the art itself and was too absorbed with completing a self imposed deadline.  So I'm finally revisiting it with a fresh perspective both mentally and artistically.

EDIT: Tweaked the proportions.

Over the years I've been asked whether or not I do commissions, until recently there wasn't really time for them. However, there's finally some breathing room where I can squeeze in a few here and there for the next little while. Read on for more info:


SIZE: 8.5x11 inches
FORMAT: digital, 300 dpi, JPG

sketch - $50
inks - $75
colours (with linework) - $125
colours (no linework) - $150
additional characters - add 60% of base price (but nothing outrageous, I'm not George Perez!)

Prices are in USD

Style and colouring will be similar to my vector pieces (without the text) such as the Martial Kin characters: example1 example2

For specific requests, please give appropriate info (ie, spidey in black suit hanging upside down etc). For creator-owned characters you must provide adequate description as well as any existing designs (ie, if your character is a pacifist with a super-brain than I probably shouldn't put him in a kung fu pose). Any revisions requested after the sketch stage will be CHARGED EXTRA.

No nudity nor explicit content (sex, graphic violence etc.)

Step 1. Send requests via email to ted(at) with 'COMMISSION REQUEST' in the subject line
Step 2. Once a request is selected, notification will be sent as well as instructions to pay the initial 50% of fees via paypal to seoulman(at)
Step 3. After the initial sketch is complete, a preview will be sent

*** REMINDER: any requests for revisions will be CHARGED EXTRA, so ensure that your initial request is precise! ***

Step 4. Once final art is complete, notification will be sent as well as instructions to pay remaining fees
Step 5. Upon receipt of total payment, artwork will be sent via email or YouSendIt

NOTE: Commissions are for personal use only. Any further commercial use for profit or gain is strictly prohibited. Don't be a Granito!

Turnaround time: I will do my best to complete each commission under a month (but no guarantees). My other client work and teaching duties take precedence but your commissions will be completed eventually. Thanks in advance for understanding!

Furthermore, any commissions posted online on my site(s) will be lo-res only and with possible watermark in fairness to paying customers.
