Arrow Equine portrait artist - Taking commissions!

I'm a rather new member around here and I've been a working artist for some time, though I stopped taking commissions last year because of school. However, school is now over and I'd like to start taking commissions again. I take commissions for just about anything but horses are my favorite, obviously. If I could just draw horses for the rest of my life, I'd be happy.

I would also consider doing a trade for something other than art (tack, supplies, a service, or some other item).

Otherwise, I charge $10 per hour and per subject. Here are a few examples and prices to give you an idea of how much I might charge for what you need. All of these prices are per subject.

Pencil or digital sketch: $7.50-head/bust, $15-full body
Inked drawing (line art): $10-head/bust, $20-full body
Inked & cel or smooth shaded: $30-head/bust, $45-full body
Digital painting: $45-head/bust, $60-full body

The above prices are general. Certain features or accessories such as wings, fancy armor, or surfaces with high detail patterns (scales/feathers/spots/etc...) may be extra. Backgrounds are extra depending but if it's a colored drawing I'll usually at least put in a plain gradient background with colors that compliment the subject.

I only do digital art except for pencil sketches which can be shipped to you. I might consider doing a watercolor or pastel portrait if you're set on it, though we would have to discuss pricing.

Here are examples of my completed artwork:















Thanks for looking!

I like the last one the best, but I appreciate the digital art , since I don't know how to do it at all. Good luck and I am sure you will find plenty of takers. What were you studying in school?

Thank you!

I was in a dental assisting program. It's my day job. Being an artist is great but it's difficult to get into a position where it pays the bills, you know?

As far as digital art, it's actually pretty easy and far more convenient than traditional art because of the ability to erase, resize, and use masks and layers. Of course, it's not "better" as it's a completely different art form and you're comparing apples to oranges. But I prefer it usually.

Typically I sketch the basic lines with a pencil on paper, scan it in, and I "paint" it using a Wacom tablet and Adobe Photoshop CS3.

Thank you! That last one is a pencil sketch of my own horse, Brego whom I have photos of in my 'horses' section.
