Commission Information · 10:55am
I wasn't planning on doing a post like this, but it came up and I may as well deal with it properly. For information and examples of my drawskills, roll by my Deviantart account.
So you've decided to pay Thanqol to do stuff! Congratulations! As far as business decisions go, you could not have made a more inadvisable decision to opt out of not doing! So let's go through the questions that are no doubt filling your overwrought biological brain-sack and spawning their curiously squirming larvae!
I value my creative time at about $15 an hour. For that I'll do pretty much whatever you want! All prices are in Australian dollars and handled via PayPal.
As far as drawing goes, that means I'll put in an hour long sketch jam, work towards a finished portrait, colour lineart, whatever. Something like this will cost you about $30. Usual payment system of half down, half later applies. I am relatively new to the game, so I guarantee only that I do my absolute best!
As far as writing goes, I charge $10 per 1000 words. There is also a non-negotiable, non-refundable $50 deposit before I even pick up the pen, and an additional $50 payment due at each 5000 word interval. I will, however, spend as much time as necessary to plan, revise, edit and generally make sure that the finished product is a quality story!
TWO: FIRST IMPRESSIONS
When sending your request, you must include the full details of ~*everything*~ that you want from me in the first email. Everything! I get to work quickly and I don't like surprise revisions mid-way through a project, and I *will* fill in any blank or ambiguous spots in your description with whatever I think works best. While I'm happy to make edits or changes on the basis of quality or mistakes I am not happy to make them based on hidden priorities or forgotten details.
Be clear. Take as much time and space as you need. I'll treat all your criteria as gospel, but only if they're all articulated up-front and without ambiguity.
I am open minded! A surcharge may apply for some topics, though, and I reserve the right to reject anything for any/no reason. Ask me.
As a minor note, I am more than happy to do trades! Send me a note and we'll hammer something out!
These are the ancient secrets of entering into a business transaction with Thanqol. Guard them with your life.
