CUSTOM ORDERS


At this time I am trying to taking many of my custom orders through Etsy to help make transactions easier.  VISIT THE STORE   www.etsy.com/shop/creaturesfro…

There are many suggested listing for custom orders, based on popularity, in the shop but they are no means the limit.  If you would like a custom order please browse the store first to get ideas about prices and content.  To contact me with your questions email creaturesfromel@gmail.com  - I rarely check my DA messages, so email is a much better bet

Due to volume of emails I simply do not have time to answer individual how-to art questions. In the past I have taught sculpture and stop motion animation. In the not too distant future I hope to resume private lessons and release some online tutorials for this purpose as well :) If there are individual topics you would like to see tackled in tutorial form by all means email me your ideas.
Thank you for all the birthday wishes DA watchers.  What a pleasant surprise : )

Me in short

I’m a recent academic graduate (anthropology) and a full time artist.  I’ve been schooled in art critique but am a self taught sculptor.  I work in all different clays and mediums for my sculpture, favoring those which are lighter on my hands and lighter on the earth in their production.  All sculpting and detailing is done with my hands as I’ve never liked tools.  I colour finished works with liquid acrylic, water based oil paints or natural stains.  Inspiration comes from original sources, mostly personal relationships with plants and animals and a more generalized fascination with the images of science and discovery.

Custom Work

Q: Do you do custom work?

A: Commissions are about half of what I do!  Frequently requested subjects include:
-recreation of personal avatars or totem animals
-character concepts for writers
-pets and familiars
-favorite animals (real or fantasy)
-customizations/recreations/composites of my previous sculptures (you want a similar dragon in blue? No problem).  

Q: What are your prices?

A:  My standard commission price for a 9” figure, any subject, is $100.  For more money I go larger and more detailed with 12” averaging $150, 18” for $200, and so on.  Most of my orders take the form of “I’d like a black winged wolf for $125”, but if you are unsure what size a price entails or what would look best for your design email me and we can throw ideas around.  

Q:  If I have a concept drawing will you work from that?

A:  Concept drawings and photographs are welcome, as are specific descriptions but they are not required.  Most request takes the form of being very vague and allowing me to fill in the blanks, but I’m open to specifics.  

Q:  What about bulk orders or professional commissions?

A:  I do sell wholesale to certain shops and dealers, with bulk orders having up to a 40% discount.  All my works are individual and not caste therefore there is a limit on the volume/cost ratio but I am open to negotiation.

Q: Do you ship?

A: Worldwide.  I will charge you to the dollar what shipping costs me.  The average 9” $100 commission usually costs $10-$14 to ship to Canada, the USA, and the UK and $14-20 to ship to Australia.  

Q: Do you do professional commissions?

A: Yes, my commission work is not limited to small sculptured figurines, in the past I’ve done wall hanging sculpture, life sized sculpture, mural work, animal habitat design, medical illustration and sculpture, advertisements, illustration using 3d figures and digital effects, props and promotional sculptures and others.  Want to make a request or bounce ideas off me?  Just email me at creaturesfromel@gmail.com
