Pricing & breakdown
Sprites • flat or CELL-SHADE
Bust $25 | Thigh-up $60 | Full Body $80
+ $12 / minor pose adjustment
+ $3 / expression OR $20 MC pack*
+ $5-20 / prop
+ $20+ / outfit x number of poses
Character concepts are not included. I will freehand a first draft based off of the profile description. If you want to workshop the design extensively, please commission a character concept art before proceeding to sprites.
Minor pose change is an arm movement. If you pose requires redrawing entire character, (ie fight stance, slouching, etc) that will be the price of a new base character.
* What is an MC (main character) Pack?
Mix and match eyebrows, eyes and mouths for nuanced expression making - includes 7+ of each, unique to each character, based off their description. (My personal favorite part of the process, so sometimes I do a little extra.)
$90+ per CG Cell Shade or $125+ Soft Shade - up to 2 characters (examples: here)
SIMPLE BACKGROUNDS ONLY! Willing to coordinate with a background artist, or modify existing BG assets, but I do not do complicated backgrounds.
Additional characters or props will cost extra. Price will vary, if costume or pose is extremely complicated.
Rules & policy
No hentai (…and just like that, I’ve lost you, haven’t I?)
No fully nude base sprites. Lingerie & swimwear is fine
Maximum of up to three minor edits once finals have been sent.

FAQ • Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Can I do a single test commission first before I commit?
A: Of course!
Q: So the 'Base Sprite' does not include any expressions?
A: Only one default neutral face. Please add either the Main Character Pack ($20) or additional single faces ($3)
Q: How many expressions are included in the Main Character Pack? What does 7+ mean?
A: Generally the pack covers most all the expressions a character will need for the game. Some will have more than others, depending on personality. I can add additional specific ones at your request, but if we start to go over 15 eyes/mouths then I may start to charge you more.
Q: Do you take monthly installments / Can I commission one piece at a time per month?
A: Gah, sorry. Some months I’m completely unavailable RL, so please have your project ready to go. If you need to split it up into batches of sprites and CGs, that is fine.
Q: Can I hire you to do SFW assets for my NSFW game?
A: Tentative yes. I don’t mind doing assistant work, but I don’t want to do main character sprites and then find out later they’ve been edited naked by a different artist lol. If you need NSFW sprites, you’re probably better off with a different artist. SFW CGs and sprites are fine.
Q: Will you work on a private commission or illustration (non Visual Novel related)?
A: Depends on the scale and/or type of the commission. Please email me to ask!
