Heyla and welcome to my commissions page. I'm assuming that the reason you clicked here was that you were interested in requesting custom artwork from NightWing Galleries. I need to state right off that I enjoy commissions, and do my best to get them finished in a timely manner, however, I am a very slow artist, due to being mom to two small boys. It generally takes me several weeks for a pencil drawing, to several months for a painting. So please keep this in mine when commissioning me.
Below is a guideline for my commission rates, these vary depending on medium, and level of complexity. These prices are subject to change at any time, and of course there may be exceptions to this guide. I am flexible with my rates, the list is only ment as a guideline.
Current Status for Commissions: Open, e-mail if interested.

****Complex details are ornate jewelry, complicated armor/weaponery, borders around the image, celtic knotwork or complicated designs.
****Complex backgrounds are dense forests, castles, stonework, buildings, carts, etc. I will not draw machinery, or modern vehicles if I can help it.
Due to some abuse of my good nature there will be a $10 surcharge for every rough requested over the three tries that come with your commission. My time is very valuable, as is yours, so please, please try to have your descriptions as accurate as possible.
Commissions under $50 need to be paid in full at time of request. For pieces $50 and up, a %50 deposit is required before I begin work on your request. You have the option to do the half now, half later, or pay it in full. I prefer payment in full because there is no waiting once I finish the piece. I generally will sketch out the drawing first to make sure everything is right. You may change the drawing at this point in time, once I add ink, or color to it, sorry but I can't do anything about changes. I will begin the actual work as soon as I get the initial or complete payment. The second half of the payment for pieces over $50 is due at completion of the project and satisfaction of the commissioner. I will scan the drawing and send it to you via e-mail, so you can check it over to make sure everything is to your satisfation. Prices will generally be quoted with their shipping costs included. Commissions are worked on in the order their payments are recieved. No payment is due before I present the commissioner with a concept sketch of the drawing,however once the concept sketch is accepted, no further work will be done until payment is recieved.
Payments must be in US funds. I will not accept forgein currencies. I accept money orders, checks (allow two weeks to clear), cash (at your own risk), and Paypal (add $2 for the transaction fee). I am not responsible for payments lost in the mail, so please make sure you send them to the right address. I will include all relevant information in an e-mail. Shipping generally runs around $5, for the mailer and postage. International shipping is more depending on where you live.
Things I will draw.
Wolves, big cats, deer, eagles, horses.
Things I will not do, so don't bother ask.
Basically, the more detailed your description is, the better I will be able to do what you want. Reference pictures are a big help if you have them, but if not, please include small details, so they aren't forgotten. Colors, backgrounds, etc. All that I ask is that you allow me to work within my artistic style.
I reserve the right to refuse any art request for any reason. If no reply is recieved within 2 weeks of a completion, or update, I will consider the commission terminated and will cease work until I hear from the client. If no reply is recieved within 3 months, the drawing becomes my property to sell if I wish. The exception to this is loss of net access, or other legitamate reasons.
No refunds will be given on commissioned works once the image has been sent out. If the image is damaged upon receipt, I will do my best to replace it from one of the roughs. The original must be sent back (customer pays for shipping). Once the rendering is begun, the deposit(on pieces over $50), or the complete payment on pieces under $50 is non-refundable. This is to cover the cost of materials that have been used to create the drawing.
All art I create for others and myself is copyright to me. Your purchase of a commission from me does NOT transfer copyright to you. I do not claim rights to any characters that are not mine, however I retain all rights to the artwork, including making prints.
Unless otherwise agreed upon by myself and the commissioner, all art is for non-commercial/non-business purposes ONLY. Personal use only includes using the art as wallpaper, tattoos, screensaver, making prints for your own personal use, T-shirts for your own use, or using the art on a personal website with proper credit given (ie. My name, and a link back to this site). Commercial use is NOT permitted. This includes selling or reproducing said art in any form, or using my art on a commercial website without express written permission from ME. If you are not sure about something, e-mail me and ask!
