How Rates for Commissions are set?

Painting unusual poses, complicated items, gadgets, additional characters, pets or very detailed background take more time, therefore it makes price higher. All prices in the tables on this page are approximate and depends on the level of complexity. However for portraits and illustrations you can follow the logic below (from lower to higher price):

  • Number of characters: Only one < Couple < Group
  • Shot: Bust < Waist up < Full body
  • Pose: Standing relaxed < Elegant gestures < Captured in the heat of the battle
  • Background: Misty shapes < Detailed < Illustrated with many details
  • Outfit: Potato bag < Casual outfit < Complicated armour with many elements
  • Resolution: Desktop wallpaper < Book cover < Poster print size

Please note that the information and price lists on this page applies only to private commissions. If you’re interested in commissions with commercial license the price will be about 20% higher. If you’re a writer or publisher follow the link to the page for writers.

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

It was my absolute pleasure to work with Marlena. (…) 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 show to others.  Would commission her again in a heartbeat.

-Timothy S. Brannan, The Other Side

I commissioned to do the cover art for my upcoming book. (…) I was nervous because I was being pretty specific. What I got back from Marlena, BLEW ME AWAY! She crafts something out of your thoughts, and guides you through a collaboration process of art and feedback till you hit just the right note.

Jon Ford, Tepris Press
