  • "Character" refers to one character in a simple environment, best suited for portraits. These may take about one to two months to finish.
  • "llustrations" are fully detailed scenes and take a minimum of two months to finish.
  • Additional characters may add 50%-75% from base price - I can give a quote once all necessary details have been discussed.
  • Here's a sample of stages and updates I send during the process!
    Changes can be made during Thubmnail, Base and Clean Sketch stages. After those, corrections are limited to color and materials.
  • If you've got a limited budget and are not sure if I'd accept your request, do send me an email anyways so we can start talking :D

What is this Iron Artist thing?

It's a self imposed challenge to work fast by making full use of a variety of tools, and to learn to focus on the bigger picture rather than staying stuck on small details.

FIGURE: Paintings focused on the character, gesture and texture. Environment elements are mostly abstract.
SCENES: Illustrations based on a personal selection from various movies and tv shows.

More samples can be found here!

The Process:

  • After opening slots, I'll send a link to an invoice within 48 hours. Once paid I'll add your name to My queue within 24 hours.
  • I'll send the finished image within 10 days after payment has been made. I'll send a notification in advance if I can't meet this deadline. You may request your slot to be cancelled and refunded.
  • Once you receive the finished file and are happy with it, feel free to share it as soon as you want!

The Rules:

  • To keep up the intended speed there will be no progress updates. Corrections are only available if I've made a mistake on the character's design that was clear on the references given.
  • Characters must have a clear visual reference. Some design elements like patterns will be simplified.
  • I'll do characters from any fandom, any species (humanoid, anthro, animal, creature), gender, time period, genre (fantasy, sci fi, etc). Restrictions on military and religious themes may apply.
  • You can write a very short description or give me full artistic freedom.
  • For Scenes: You can include an outfit (in the Character Reference field), otherwise they'll be given the same outfit as in the screenshot.
  • Up to three characters per slot. Base price remains the same, so double for couples, triple for three characters.
  • All finished images will be made public. If you'd like your name to remain anonymous please let me know in the "Username" field.
