Commissions info and price list

I specialize in digital painting. However, I’m also a skillful graphic designer. On this page you can find information about my commissions, estimated prices, and policies. Please read it through and fill the commission form if you’re interested in ordering an illustration.

Outfit: Potato bag < Casual outfit < Complicated armor with many elements
Resolution examples: Desktop wallpaper < Book cover < Poster print size

Testimonials

Marlena is an absolute joy to work with. Her art is simply beautiful. Combine this with her professional attitude, and she’d be an asset to any project!

– Dr. Julian Darius, Sequart Organization and Martian Lit

Working with Marlena was a joy. She is very kind and willing to work within your budget to get you the best drawing for what you can afford. She updates you often and makes sure that what she has is everything you wanted. Her art is incredible! She made my first commission experience very comfortable. I will definitely be coming back for another commission.

– Rowan

Marlena is a wonderful and highly skilled artist, the illustration we commissioned is beyond gorgeous and exceeded our expectations. She is excellent to communicate with, understood our vision, kept us updated with WIP sketches and took revisions as requested. Highly recommend and will be looking to commission again in the future!

-Vera

It was my absolute pleasure to work with Marlena.  First off she was extremely fast; from the time I first contacted her to completed work was just a matter of days. While that is great, more importantly, she took all my random ideas, vague descriptions, and samples and made something beautiful.  It was like she was able to see exactly what I wanted and turned it into reality.  She captured the essence of my character better than I could have described.  It was a wonderful experience to have her take something I only saw in my mind’s eye and make it into something I could others.  Would commission her again in a heartbeat.

– Timothy S. Brannan, The Other Side

I’ve commissioned Marlene (Lenamo) twice now and both experiences have been wonderful. Her skills continue to improve and her attitude is nothing less than exceptional! She’s very communicative and makes changes to pieces quickly and will give you what you asked for and more! I’ve recommend Marlena to my friends already and will continue to! Such a joy and pleasure to work with

-Ianirah

This was my first time commissioning Marlena, but I can assure it won’t be my last. I came to her with a vague idea in my head and even more vague idea on paper but somehow she managed to make my character come alive on paper exactly has I envisioned him. Totally worth it!

-Isaac

Working with Marlena is, quite frankly, a JOY! She listens to all of your ideas and explains her process as well as keeping you updated regularly. The end result is always what I want and so much more, her interpretation of the character or scene is spot on and better than I could have ever hoped for.”

– Kiara Feldman, writer

Marlena is professional and easy to approach with a request. I filled out her commission form and she sprang into action. I received regular updates on how the work was progressing and I am entirely satisfied with the end result.

– DustyBadSkillz

Marlena/Lenamo is a wonderful artist, and instantly just got what I was going for with my rough initial idea and transformed it beautifully! She was also extremely kind with her expertise in helping me with some of my initial indecision about what would look best, and how best to print the work. The final piece takes proud place in my home, and I heartily recommend commissioning her!
