Size: Due to me being in Europe and my
main customer base being in North America, I usually do not send
original or printed versions of the finished artwork. You do,
however, get a high resolution graphics file which you can freely
use to print your commissioned artwork on any media of your choice
(posters, t-shirts, caps, cups, etc). The print size will vary
depending on the content, and will be anywhere between 14"
x 8 1/2" and 20" x 14".
Should your character be from an MMORPG, I will need a screenshot
with all important features and details on it (the attire you
want to see in the artwork, weapons, auras, etc). You can of course
send more to show different angles, front, back, sides, etc. I
will need a detailed description with all pertinent information.
Please point out any special wishes or features, such as scars,
tattoos, anything that the game might not portray in the screenshot.
A short character description or list of traits (heroic, arrogant,
gentle and so on) will help me get a better idea of who I am dealing
with and surely improve the pic.
Please consult your game's player's handbook for informations
on how to take screenshots.
Commissioning: Please use the Commission
form to contact me. You will be informed that your request
was received and I will add your name unbindingly to the waitlist.
As soon as I can start working on your commission, I will contact
you and we will work out all further details together.
Process: Creation Process: You will
always have your say during the creation process. If you don't
have a specific pose or image in mind, I will create a handful
of 'suggested poses' for you to look over. You can also suggest
poses of your own and I will sketch them so you can see what they
could look like. After you have decided on a pose, I will start
working on the more detailed penciled art, which you will review
once it's finished. This is a very important stage, as any big
errors or changes will need to be noted now before I move on to
the ink stage. However, I won't move on until you are completely
satisfied with the penciled art.
After your approval I will then ink the image, and the final inked
artwork will be sent to you again for another review. Then I will
do preliminary coloring so you can get an idea of what the colors
will be, and again any corrections color-wise will be made at
this stage. Afterwards I will complete the coloring and shading,
and the final product will be sent to you for a final review and
approval. Then I will package the high-resolution image and a
smaller web-sized image for you to do with as you please. (This
is assuming you commissioned a colored pic)
Alikeliness: Should you have a a
real life exemplar for the look of your character, like an actor,
singer, model or even yourself, and want your character to bear
resemblance the very, please let me know about it. I will try
to capture the look as well as possible.
Duration: Depending on the amount of
commissions I'm working on, the waiting time can be between 3-5
weeks. Once I have started working on your commission it usually
takes around 1-2 weeks from rough sketch to finished product,
depending on the complexity of the art and the swiftness of our
email or IM exchanges.
Payment: If you can't or don't want
to pay the full amount up front, you can put down half the payment
when I start working on your piece and pay the second half once
the artwork is finished. I accept payment through PayPal, although
special arrangements can be made for European customers.

The services offered by RP Visions.com are for private persons
only. Every person who commissioned has limited right to reproduce
each piece and can't publish it without my formal permission.
This is mere act of courtesy, please just ask.
I assume the right to re-produce the final image in advertising,
promotional, or commercial ventures. If you do not want your commission
to be used in any kind of art book, promotion or advertisement,
please expressly state so after your commission has been finished
at the latest.
