  :bulletyellow: This information is for personal use, for other works ask me for a budget (ms.sonia.matas@gmail.com)

  :bulletgreen:Will do: BADASS WOMEN. Also ecchi, nude, muscular ppl, anthro.. ask me :)

  Would you like a private commission? Let me know it upfront (I usually post WIPs)
  I don't publish all commissions in my gallery.


  :bulletyellow:How I work?

  Detailed stages of the commission process:

PLEASE FIRST TAKE A LOOK ON MY GALLERY
that's my style, please don't ask me to copy another styles (I won't reply).

  :bulletgreen: 1.- Send me a note or an email with your inquiry (thank you!).
  Please send me clear and easy to understand descriptions, not too large, remember that english is not my native language :)
  don't forget to mention the character personality, appearance and clothes.
VERY IMPORTANT: Tell me why is special for you this request, I also want to fall in love with your idea to enjoy it a lot!
  Is very important you tell me all the info upfront, if you don't tell me for example specific description
  of the clothes I'll assume I have freedom to design it. Remember that the less time making changes,
  more time coloring and adding details to the final work! :)

  :bulletgreen: 2.- I give you the the final price and my account (payment always upfront). I accept different payment methods.
And YES, ALWAYS IN ADVANCE, PLEASE. This is due to bad experiences in the past, I'm sorry.
  You can ask for the rough sketch ($40- $80€) and if you decide to carry on you just have to send the rest of the amount.
  if the payment is not received in 20 days you lose your place and you have to get a new slot.

  :bulletgreen: 3.- The commission wouldn't take more than 30 days after the payment is received, but it depends on the complexity.
  If you don't like to wait, I recommend you to pay the "rush/prior customer" extra fee (+40%) and you'll have the drawing finished in 5 days max. 

  :bulletgreen: 4.- I give you a POSE SKETCH (you can request another pose if you don't like that one). You can ask for the work in progress to check it.

  :bulletgreen: 5.- I'll be sending the WIP of the sketch and the final sketch. Once the final sketch is finished and approved only changes
of things you already told me (but I forgot to fix) are accepted.

  :bulletgreen: 6.- I send you a color palette or a rough color image for you to check it.

  :bulletgreen: 7.- I'll send you the drawing in the middle of the color stage to ensure everything's as you like.

  :bulletgreen: 8.- I'll aso send the finished piece for you to give me the "OK", then I send you the full resolution file.

  I always work hard to ensure that the commissioner is having a nice experience and he's satisfied with the result! C:


  :bulletyellow: I work for personal use above all but if you want extra rights to use my image ask me for a budget please.
  FAQ *Do I need the exploitation rights?
  No, you don't unless you're going to have profit with my work:
 
You can post your commission anywhere,
 you just can't earn money with it: sell a book with the drawing, selling shirts, prints, etc.

Just curious, did you made your drawings in RGB or SMYK?

SoniaMatas Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2016  Professional Digital Artist
I always work in RGB because of the big amount of colors. If i have to print it then I change it to CMYK.

Thank you for the answer <3 but when you change it to CMYK, how you keep the colors looking same? I have that color problem and when I change it, they become horrible different :D

I try not to use very light colors as the light green/blue and the saturated pink. I suppose is just experience ^^

His commission guidelines are very well thought out, it's clear he's made a lot of amendments based on experiences he's had. It's nice to see he's booked up until 2016, that's encouraging. I guess I need to just find that gold vein myself.

Yes, Sonia's carved out a cozy market for herself. Although your interests and style do not perfectly match hers, they are not miles apart. So I believe you can do it too. I say that because of the range of work you've posted - from the comic panels, to the semi-painterly line work, and the more Vallejo-like pieces.

I hope so. I think being a chick helps also, because women can sell anything. I've been told, by women, that if I was a woman doing my art, I'd be a lot more successful. Perfect example is Sakimi-chan. She's good yes, but $30k every 2 weeks good? Serioisly?

DecemberSounds Featured By Owner Oct 20, 2015
Lol, well, Sakimi-chan must work like a slave to provide everything she does to her followers (have you seen her all 'rewards', jeez) so she probably has carpel tunnel syndrome...if that's any consolation.

I woild imagine with kind of money coming in, she has a staff or at least assistants. I would have a flat colorist amd an inker minimum as well as somebody to do all the internet stuffs. I would just do the pencilling or roughs, then turn kt over to me crew. Im sure at 15 grand a week I could pay 5 out of that to 3 other people. The more money you dont claim yourself, the less you get hit in taxes.

¿Tiene una versión de las reglas (valores, procedimientos, etc.) en español? Inglés no es mi fuerte. Felicitaciones por su matrimonio.
