COMMISSIONS CLOSED



As of this moment, I no longer accept any new commissions. I am fully booked well into 2018 and there's no point in creating such a long waiting list. I will update this journal entry, if and when I reopen commissions in the future.

Thank you all very much.
Best regards,
Mathia Arkoniel.

Your art is amazing! And while I certainly wish you had a free spot sooner, congratulations on that full schedule :) if it's not too much to ask, do you have a general price range? (E.g. All possible commission options are from $__-$__ or something. No need for details. I'm just interested in saving enough to have options available to me whenever you do open again). I have no idea yet what I'd want to order from you, but I'd certainly be interested in setting aside some money for the future! Just have to get a general range of how much to put aside...anyhow, hope you are doing well!

Hi! Thank you so much for your wonderful compliment. I am overjoyed to hear that you like my paintings and honored that you wish to commission me. :D
As it currently stands though, the likelihood of opening commissions again in the next two years is rather small. I am currently in my second year of Uni, next year I will be in my 3rd, and I might even do a Masters afterwards. I am truly sorry.
Regarding the price range; what my price would be today will not be the same as what they will be 2 years from now. But I would estimate that a cell-shaded painting would cost between +$100 to +$200. I am sorry I can't give a more accurate estimate.
Thanks again for your interest. :D

I'm unsure how to start this. Maybe a couple disclaimers
1. I paid attention, I understand you're commissions are closed for the foreseeable future.
2. I have read through all the comments in this Journal.
3. I am testing the waters and my question/comment doesn't mean I'm looking to make any sort of commitment.

So here goes:
I read that your contract with Raythe prohibits you from working with Yoai US Publishers. What if they aren't US or yaoi, and technically not a publisher?
I'm a Canadian Indie Author (meaning I self-publish) and I don't write yaoi. I'm thinking of making my first novel into a Graphic Novel (Both a YA and 'Adult' versions).

Truthfully, I don't even know how to go about asking Artists about something like this, nor even have an idea what it could possibly cost! Reason I built up the courage to comment you like this, is because you seem easily approachable. And Sorry if the tone of this comment came off... weird. Not my intention.

Thank you so much for your message and research. :D I can create illustrations and covers for for other publishers of non-yaoi novels in the US, and any sort of novel outside of the US (so in Canada it would be okay with yaoi as well), but, graphic novels are an exception. Indifferent of the genre or country of origin, I am contracted to work only for Raythe Reign in this.

Sadly though, even if I could create for you a graphic novel, I no longer accept any new commissions, and for the foreseeable 2-3 years this will probably not change due to my schedule being so busy with work and uni.
Important to note though, is that if I will ever be available to do a graphic novel for other publishers/authors, I will post a full notification of it here in my "Contact and Commission Fees" journal entry.

Thank you so much for your interest, and I am sorry I couldn't be of more help.

I'll be patiently waiting for a chance to get on the waiting list for... 2018?
Well a character sheet might do. Either way, it is worth the wait, I am sure!
Great work!

That you're fully booked until 2018... although in fairness I would probably not be as broke by then, so it makes more financial sense... :lol:

Thank you again, so much in your interest to commission me. Usually, yes, I just reserve commission slots for people who are interested, but I sadly no longer accept any commissions at all. I am terribly sorry. I am not certain when commissions will be available again, but I don't think in the next 2 years. :( Thanks again, so much.

Hi! Thank you so much for your wonderful compliment on my art. :D Regarding your question; currently I am fully booked for character sheets until the summer. So the earliest I could work on your character sheet is around July/August. :) If you are interested, please send me an email. I can only 'book you' if you send me an email. :D Thank you so much.

I  saw this -

commission: November Character Sheet by MathiaArkoniel



And I fell in absolute love. I thought about having one done in the future when my financial state is better. Might I get a quote for a price of what that cost? (:
I think it might be 50$ - but I'm not entirely sure!

Thank you so much for the wonderful compliment. I am overjoyed to hear that that piece is to your liking. :D You can find all of my prices listed in this journal entry, and yes, you assumed correctly that a 3 head-shot, 3 colored pose character sheet is $50. :) Sadly though, my schedule is rather full. The soonest I could book you for a character sheet is in the summer. If this wait is alright with you and you are still interested, please send me an email, so i can pen you into my calendar. :) Thanks so much.

That'd be perfect actually (I was going to ask to be on the waiting list until this summer!). 
I'm not sure what character I want yet. I'm stuck between my pharaoh boy and my vampire prince. (: 

Could I email you with both ideas and  can just choose when my time for the commission comes around?

:iconmathiaarkoniel:
MathiaArkoniel Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2016  Professional Digital Artist
Certainly. IF you truly cannot decide which you would prefer to commission, I will gladly help with the choice. Please do email me, so I can book you in (without an email address, i can't do it, I am sorry). But please don't email me yet your exact ideas, because when the scheduled date arrives, i will send you a form to fill out.
Looking forward to working with  you. :)

(: I was just going to send my character references, that's all (just so I actually have them on file too in my sent box so I don't forget who I was talking about). 
And I'd be glad to fill the form out when the time comes! (Maybe after this one I'll be able to actually get the other on a later date when you're open again!).

Email sent!

Man when I come into some money I'm definitely gonna commission you to draw my characters from my story. Or perhaps my Saints Row OC. I've been following you for years but I'd actually be able to afford one of your drawings.


Actually I might be able to afford one now...

Hi. I am so sorry for my delayed reply. RL got a bit hectic lately.
As for your question; I am sorry, I do not do yet commissions in that character sketch style. I am still experimenting with it, but I will have it available for commissions in the near future. Thank you so much for your interest.

MathiaArkoniel Featured By Owner May 18, 2015  Professional Digital Artist
Hi. It all depends on what style you would like to commission? Fully detailed paintings have a waiting list of about a year (so I will only start work on your painting in 2016). If you would like to commission a cell-shaded style painting, than the waiting list is much shorter (around 2-3 months), for they require less time to finish.

These lengths of time are constant; that is, if you were to commission me in summer 2016, the waiting list for a detailed painting would still be a year long, so I could only work on your commission in 2017. Hence I advise in my post as well, to schedule slots now. Payment is made only when I start work on your painting, so not now. :)

I do not calculate my prices based on the full or half body. Indifferent whether it's full body, knees, or waist up, the price for a two character painting with a simple background is $280. :)

Are you taking yaoi based commissions again? I know the last time we spoke, your contract with Raythe Reign prohibited you from working with other publishers. Is that still the case?

Hi Harial,

Yes, sadly the rules still apply. My contract still prohibits me from working with other US yaoi publishers, and I will be contracted to Raythe Reign for the foreseeable future. I am sorry I can't be of more help.
Good luck and best wishes. M. :)

Really? Sorry but that's not possible. I've been copy/pasting from this page constantly to clients inquiring after my fees, and I haven't modified/edited the page since March. So, it seriously cannot be. Maybe DA had some error and loaded the page incorrectly, but I never ever wrote 1.50 for anything. :) Thanks for letting me know though.
