COMMISSIONS

I am always available for commissions, however the waiting list is a little long, so please consider scheduling a commission slot in advance. :)

FEES

Cell-Shaded Paintings

- 1 Cell-shaded painting, with one character and a complex* background is $100.
           *Cell-shaded paintings only come with a complex backgrounds. I do not accept commissions for simple background pieces in this style.

Cell-shaded painting examples:

Mature Content

- Every new character added is +$30.
- The maximum number of characters I am willing to paint in one cell-shaded style painting is 4.



Character Sheets

Mature Content

commissions: Crimson Character Sketches by MathiaArkoniel
original: Lucifer Morningstar by MathiaArkoniel original: Leodan Whiteflaem by MathiaArkoniel

All transactions are done through PayPal. The PayPal transaction fees of $0.30 +3.9% will be added to the final price.


List of things I won't paint...for now.

- no characters under the age of 18
- no actors/musicians/politicians —I will not paint actors outside of their roles or real musicians and/or politicians. This means, I will paint Misha Collins as Castiel, but I will not paint Misha Collins 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 more-or-less retain the shape of a human body.
- no dinosaurs — dragons are OK.
- no furries
- no vector/vexel art
- no website designs/buttons/backgrounds/logos.





For the time being, I do not accept any new "Fully detailed Painting" commissions. This does not affect already scheduled commissions. My fully detailed painting schedule is so full that there is no point adding more, because the waiting time is over 2 years long at the moment. I will reopen fully detailed paintings in a year or so from now, when the waiting time will be considerably shorter.

Fully detailed Paintings

- 1 fully detailed painting, with one character and a simple background is $230.

Simple Background examples:
commission: Sevan by MathiaArkoniel kingdoms of amalur: Maid of Windemere and OC by MathiaArkoniel commission: Deep Within Cover by MathiaArkoniel

- A complex background is +$50.
- 1 fully detailed painting, with one character and a complex background is $280.

Complex Background examples:
fever: Velvet by MathiaArkoniel silmarillion: Curufin and Celegorm by MathiaArkoniel silmarillion: Fingolfin by MathiaArkoniel

- Every new character added is +$50. The maximum number of characters I am willing to paint in one painting is 2.



FULL COPYRIGHT
If you wish to purchase full copyright for the painting, an extra $200 will be added to the price of the commission for the copyright value.

"Full Copyright" means, you own all the copyright (i.e. I retain the right to post the painting in my galleries, but I'll never re-sell it, or sell prints, mouse-pads, calendars etc. of it). Otherwise, I retain the rights to sell prints, or other forms of merchandise using the commissioned painting.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to email me at arkoniel@mathiaarkoniel.com

Thank you and best regards,
Mathia Arkoniel.

Do you by any chance still do commissions? Are you busy with some at the moment? Just curious

Yes, I am still accepting commission, though I am not accepting any fully detailed commissions. My "fully detailed" painting schedule is booked 2 years solid. So there's no point scheduling people 3 years in advance. Hence I put it on hold for now. I will reopen fully detailed paintings a year from now.

If you are interested in commission a cell-shaded painting, then yes, I am definitely available, though the waiting list is long-ish on that one too. I am terribly sorry about that. If you are interested in commissioning me, please send me an email at arkoniel@mathiaarkoniel.com I need your email address to be able to book you in. :)

Well I'm not entirely sure on the difference a painting and cell shading. Though I could say that maybe I'd be interested a very similar style to something with this kind of style mathiaarkoniel.deviantart.com/… mathiaarkoniel.deviantart.com/… mathiaarkoniel.deviantart.com/… mathiaarkoniel.deviantart.com/… mathiaarkoniel.deviantart.com/… Are these all examples of cell shading, or paintings?

Well, thank you so much for the compliment. By not being able to make a difference between the styles, you implied both look equally good. So thank you very much. But there is a huge difference between fully-detailed and cell-shaded paintings for me. Fully-detailed paintings take 20-30 days to finish, and cell-shaded paintings take half of that time, because the shading is much simpler, less detailed. :)

All of the paintings you linked to are Fully-detailed paintings (costing between $230 and $330) a piece, and those are the ones I am no longer accepting new commissions for because you would have to wait a good two years before I could start work on your painting.

The following are examples of cell-shaded paintings:

fav.me/d9m1530
fav.me/d9891wy
fav.me/d93js8v

I was wondering, is there any way one can purchase prints of your Chronicle of Elantra art?? Because, it's my all time favorite series, has been for years, and I've been watching you for a few years now and I love your art and I want those pictures on my wall. lol I'm just wondering because I love your art and I don't want to just go and take it and print it if I can buy a print. :)

Wow! Thank you very much for the honor. I would absolutely love to sell you prints of the paintings, but first I need to ask permission from Michelle Sagara. I will do this during the next week, and come back and let you know. If she OK's it, I will upload prints of every Elantra painting. Alright? :)

Thanks so much for the wonderful compliment and for your interest in purchasing my paintings.

Thank you!!! :D I know I said this already, but I LOVE your work. I remember when there were only three pictures from the Elantra series, and now you have done so many!

 I hope she says yes. Me and my mom are HUGE fans of her books. I'm bouncing off the wall waiting for the next one in the Elantra series~. X3

And, I should be the one thanking you. Your work is amazing! I love seeing your work show up on DA and FB. :)

Also (this was a year or so ago), but I asked about a picture of Kaylin's tattoos so I can cosplay her. Still doing that! Plan on going to a convention beginning of next year dressed as Kaylin. :3
