I've had it on my website for a while, but I'd thought I'd make it clear across the interweb channels that if you're interested in commissioning me for a sketch (or something more epic if you have the compensation), now's the time to do it! :)

If you're serious about throwing money at me to provide you with a piece, please email me at:

levihoffmeier@gmail.com

(Note: I'm not interested in doing anything overtly sexual or violent – a little blood and sexiness is one thing, but I have a line I'm not very interested in crossing.)

I've played Halo 4. :) Please email this stuff you're thinking about and your price range and we can figure out how we can do it exactly. :)

Your work is freaking awesome! Some day, at some point in time, I will commission you. But I'd like to ask two questions about your commission. How much would it cost for an image done in the style of your Colossus pic except in a full-sized view? And also, how much would you charge for a comic commission like Anubis?

Thanks!

A full-color painting of a single figure like Colossus would be $75. If you want epic scenery in the background or multiple figures, it takes me more time and thus it becomes more expensive.

When you say a comic commission -- do you mean one comic book page or the whole comic? One comic page, full-color, digital painting would be probably $150. A whole comic is quite a different venture...

I basically charge $10 an hour. You give me the request, I guess how much time it would take and give you a price, and then it's up to me to hit that mark. :)

I meant a whole comic, but it would probably be one page at a time. The day I get the money will be the day I will try to comission you. :)

A longer term project like that, even a page at a time, would be a little different. I'd want to be really interested in the project.

Plus if you were going to sell it, that would require a contract with percentages of profits, etc.

I would probably have it more as a free webcomic, but that will be very far in the future, probably.

Well, I charge by the hour, so a black and white will definitely take shorter and be cheaper than a color piece.

If you wanted more of a sketchy style that didn't take a whole lot of time and thus would be cheaper, you could get something like The Big Three. That would be like an hour and half, so 15 bucks.

If you wanted something with a bit more detail like Hope and Cable, that took something like 3 and half hours, that'd cost like 35 bucks.

And the father end of the spectrum, if you wanted a more fully-painted piece like Dirt, that would take a whole day and be something like $75.

How much do you charge for commissions? Or does it just depend on what it is?

Definitely depends on what it is. A simple black and white sketch would be around 25 bucks - a painting of difficulty like Halo:United would take a full week of work and cost $500.

Oh boy, the day I've been waiting for. Once I work up just a little more money, I definitely plan on something around the style of the United poster.

I can't seem to find the price range on your website, so could you tell us what the prices are for sketch/full painting/print, etc?

Well, I tinkered with making a table for it, but it got too complicated. I'd rather approach it on a case by case basis, since everybody tends to want something different, which may require much more time.

In general though, a black and white digital sketch would cost $25 dollars for content that wasn't too challenging (a portrait or single character), and the same price plus the shipping for a traditional sketch. On the other end of the scale, if you're wanting something fully painted and a bit more epic (say, my Reach bookmark for example), you're looking at something like $125-150.

If you're thinking something REALLY epic, like say the Halo: United poster - you're looking at booking me for a whole week basically. That'd be around $500. :)
