Each project is unique so to make the final price I would need more information/description of the illustration
(more characters, complex elements, the background complexity, etc.

The price may change if you have special requests (e.g.: strict deadline, more sketches, psd file, etc.)

BASIC PRICES, COMMERCIAL USE

Simple background: lights, fog, color, basic simple forms, distant simple landscapes (more like shapes), no details, etc.

Cover illustration:

1. You send me a description with visual references (you can collect some references in a Pinterest board or Google Drive folder or send it with a link by Wetransfer, etc. to showcase the mood, character, clothes, the environment pertaining to your book. You can also sketch what you have in mind, sketches work really great, no matter if they are stick men 🙂 The references are often better than written descriptions because you can simply show what you have in mind and avoid unnecessary changes and amendments in the project.

2. I send you 3 sketches of the artwork – at this stage you will have 2 rounds of changes in the selected sketch.

3. I send you a more advanced sketch with some color variations to choose – at this stage you will have 2 minor corrections or adjustments (in the sketch and/or colors)

4. I sent you the final piece for preview – at this stage only minor changes are allowed, like change of colors.

After payment I send you the full resolution version.

Typography:
