How to order a custom portrait?

I have a set process so that everything goes as smooth as possible and we both know what to expect from each other. I will guide you through the process and will do my best to give advice whenever needed.

  1. E-mail me roksidesigns@gmail.com or use the form to request a commission. Send me reference photos and anything particular you would like included like specific colors, pose or expression to help me realize your vision! I will let you know when I can start working on your commission. From that date the turnaround time is about 2-3 weeks – depending on complexity of the portrait and amount of changes.
  2. I will ask you to pay 1/2 of the price upfront via PayPal
  3. When I receive payment I will start sketching. Then I will send you the sketch once it is done. Now is the time to let me know if you want any adjustments to the sketch done. You cannot request any changes to the sketch after this phase.
  4. After you approve the sketch, I’ll start basic coloring. I will send it for your approval when it’s finished. Now is the time to ask for any color adjustments.
  5. I will ask you to pay the other 1/2 of the commission price via PayPal
  6. After color approval and payment I will finalize the portrait – add shadows, highlights and work on final details.
  7. I’ll e-mail you the high resolution version of the portrait.

What will I get?

If you order a custom portrait from me I will make sure it is a portrait you dreamed of! Throughout the process I will be contacting you to approve the sketch and then the colors. After the portrait is done I will send to you the high resolution version via email (.png file and.pdf file ready for printing).
