Frequently Asked Questions
1. How much do you charge for art, etc.?
Every project is different. I try to stay within the budget of each client. Custom work always takes longer than designs listed in my store because I have to correspond and send updates. So I have to keep the bare minimum at $500 and up. Anything less and the quality is too low. If you want something on a tight budget, check the store.
There is no max cost for a project. If you want me to work on something for 6 months or longer, it obviously costs more than something created in a couple hours.
I also require half down to start a project and then the rest when we're finished. We can keep the art abstract and painterly or get technical and make it huge and tightly rendered. That's up to you.
There's no limit to how big and detailed we can make the art. It's all a matter of time and effort.
If you email me and you don't tell me your budget for the project, i may not respond. When potential clients leave out important details in a request, it tells me they aren't serious.
I also will NOT work with you if you don't speak fluent English because i need you to be able to read and understand the contract.
2. Do you also design logos and t-shirts? I don't see any on your site.
Yes, even though that's not what i'm mainly into, i have made hundreds of logos and shirt designs.
3. What is the turn around time if i order a custom design from you?
That depends on how many projects are on my list. Usually within a month or 2 or sooner, depending on your timing and what you're asking for.
4.How will i receive the print files from you?
I use a delivery service called Digital Pigeon and send you the formats you need manually after purchase. That gives me a chance to make sure you have what you need. By default i always send a .psd, .tif, and .jpeg of the artwork at 300 dpi or higher. I can send you virtually any format you want. All you need to do is ask.
5. I noticed you have different options for each design on your site. If i order a custom design do i have to only use it for a specific purpose?
Yes, i prefer that you only use the art for what we agree on. It wouldn't be fair for you to create an entire product line off of my work without providing proper compensation.
6. What medium do you use to create your art?
I'm mostly a digital painter now since 2008.
