COMMISSION FEES

For anyone who might be interested in commissioning me, here is a rundown of my fees:

- A complex background is +$40.
- 1 fully detailed painting, with one character (full body, or knees/waist up) and a complex background is $220. Example 1, Example 2, Example 3
- Every new character added is +$50. The maximum number of characters I am willing to paint in one painting is 2.

- Every new Chibi character added is +$5. The maximum number of characters I am willing to draw is 7.
- A complex background added is +$10.

To the final price is added the PayPal transaction fees ($0.30 +3.9%).
Partial Copyright means, that I keep some of the rights to the painting, including but not limited to, selling it as prints, mouse-pads and calendars.

List of things I won't paint...for now.
- no children under the age of 16
- no actors/musicians/politicians (I will not paint actors outside of their roles or real musicians and/or politicians. This means, I will paint Alan Rickman as Severus Snape, but I will not paint Alan Rickman as he is in Real Life, unless you have written permission from him ;) ).
- no huge monsters/angular robots (cyborgs and androids are okay as long as they retain the shape of human anatomy).
- no dinosaurs (dragons are OK)
- no furries
- no vector/vexel art
- no website designs/buttons/backgrounds/logos (I am a painter, not a designer). :)

FULL COPYRIGHT

The price for the full copyright version differs from the Partial Copyright in that $200 are added for the copyright value. To the final price is added the PayPal transaction fees ($0.30 +3.9%).

In case of "Full Copyright", you own all the copyright. This practically means, that the only thing I'll ever do with the painting is post it in my galleries, but I'll never re-sell it, or sell prints, mouse-pads, calendars etc. of it.


Though I am ever so grateful for the honor of many people commissioning me, the waiting list is very long (12-16 months). So if you wish to commission me, please book a slot as soon as possible, for the waiting list is getting longer and longer. This also sadly means that I'll probably only get to work on your commission a year from the time you contacted me. I apologize for this inconvenience. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to email me at arkoniel@mathiaarkoniel.com

Thank you and best wishes.
M.A.

Emperor Dariandaros from the novel "Cast in Flame" by Michelle Sagara.

This was supposed to be an illustration of the scene from Cast in Flame where Dariandaros speaks to Kaylin, but I have too little information on the room they were in for me to properly illustrate it. The description of a sofa and chairs isn't enough. What color are the walls? Or are the walls wallpapered? Any book shelves? Paintings? How many windows? Curtains? The color of the curtains? What about a fireplace?

A ton of questions, that I do not have answers to. I just could not make this a proper illustration without a proper background. As such, it ended up being another portrait of my favorite Emperor. XD

Velvet! My favorite (now-dead) seelie fey. Why, oh why did KMM need to kill him off?!

(╥_╥)

Ah well. This is not an illustration. It’s just Velvet in all his half-naked glory on the streets of Dublin (after Shadowfever and prior to his death).

Hey!!! I was wondering, for Kaylin's markings, were they inspired by an alphabet, or did you create them?? I actually plan on being Kaylin for Halloween, markings and all. I just cant decide how to make them look and I REALLY love the markings you put on her.

Thank you very much for the information and for the thought, but this is called "fair use" and is not a copyright infringement. The person did not claim that the painting is theirs, they left the watermark on the painting, so they may feel free to repost the painting in as many places as they like. :)

All pictures and artworks on the web can be reposted as long as you give credit to the original artist, of course. Claiming a work as your own when you did not actually create it, that's copyright infringement. Reposting, sharing, rebloging is okay under the Creative Commons license, and/or Fair Use.

Thanks ever so much for leaving me a comment about this. I truly appreciate it. :)

Oh yes, I noticed that. Each to their own, of course, but I think that's quite silly not to want your artwork shared as much as possible. Sharing (and being given credit for it, of course), can ONLY bring you tons of new fans and potential clients. So, sharing their work and spreading the word, is the best thing and greatest compliment one can give to an artist, in my opinion. :)

Thank you again for the thought and the time. :)
