[LAST UPDATED: 23 Mar 2016, 5PM Singapore time]

Turns out, I need the time to build my portfolio so... commissions are closed, so very sorry...

Note that I no longer will accept drawing Sonic Fan Characters (with the exception of friends), I never felt comfortable about SFCs very much. ^^;

Will draw:

Bullet; Green Anthromorphs
Bullet; Green Cartoony characters
Bullet; Green TF2 loadouts
Bullet; Green Sonic official characters
Bullet; Green Humans

Not so comfortable/confident with drawing:

(if you really want to commission me these, I will most likely upload to privately instead of dA)
Bullet; Yellow Scantily-dressed characters (uncomfortable, I'd like to keep my gallery at a "Everyone 10+" rating)
Bullet; Yellow Characters kissing (uncomfortable)
Bullet; Yellow Anime-styled eyes and hair (the only Japansese pop culture thing I follow is Vocaloid. Other than that no, it's just not "me")


Bullet; Red Fan Characters of any kind (exception: my friends, or if the drawing is your reward for helping me with a favour)
Bullet; Red Extreme violence and gore (slight blood is okay)
Bullet; Red Sexual themes of any kind :stare:
Bullet; Red Hate-art, racist remarks and use of vulgar language. (check with me what words I deem as acceptable)


[currently being worked on, this will be my first time using Paypal so I need to figure things out!]

In a dA note, you MUST tell me:
  1. The style you want
  2. Who/what you want me to draw (reference images would be really helpful!) 
  3. Any other details (e.g. poses, personality, composition e.t.c.)
  4. The purpose of the art, if applicable (E.g. album/book cover, square icon/avatar, bookmark, keychain, e.t.c.)
  5. Your email address, as I will receive the payment through invoices. (you don't need a Paypal account to pay, you can use your debit/credit card)
  6. Whether you want me to just go ahead with the commission, OR show you the sketch (you can request for me to edit from that stage). Payment must be made UPFRONT regardless of whether you request to see the sketch or not.


1)  I will start on your commission only after full upfront payment AND after I have replied to your note. 

2) I have the right to decline or cancel any commissions. Full refund will be made if I cancel a commission-in-progress.

3) Any rude or over-demanding behaviour will not be taken lightly and may result in cancellation of existing commissions.

4) You MAY NOT post the commissioned work into your gallery.

5) You MAY use them for journal skins and deviant IDs (please give credit).

If you don't, I will give you a reminder.
If you refuse to credit, you may be reported and I may not approve your future commissions.


All prices shown are for 1 CHARACTER (unless otherwise stated) on a transparent or abstract background.
Additional US$7-14 (S$10-20) for background environment depending on complexity.


Specify what you want the art for! E.g. Music album art, square icon/avatar, bookmark, keychain, book illustration e.t.c. It helps! I would love to see my art in projects outside of simple commissions.
I'm open to freelance work on designing characters or making art for small indie videogames too :) Especially love to help those starting out!

My main focus is still on personal projects!

I need to get PayPal :nuu: I wanted to do that last weekend DX I forgot D:
JemiDove Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2016  Student Digital Artist
Take your time, I'm still trying to figure out how to use it for digital goods on my end :XD:
Carinaconstellation Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Haha XD I see, well, otherwise I could always send you the money via post but I think that'd be weird ^^;

I'm also still deciding which character I would like you to draw and whether I should ask for a small key ring, bookmark or a detailed drawing style 1 with glow.
For the character it would either be the Librarian, Medwin Larsen, maybe Masou Ashbel, Daita Fethon or Lucia (though I'd need to submit her latest design) So far I'm leaning more towards the Librarian

*replies days later*
Great news!! I found out that the customer doesn't need to have Paypal to pay for the goods, only I the artist needs to have Paypal :D The customer will receive a Paypal invoice through email, but they can pay using their debit/credit card. :3 So all you need to provide is your email really :D

Ah, you have good taste in the types of products I offer. :XD: Personally I'm most proud of my Style 1: Detailed Drawing with glow, but I'm quite eager in being commissioned traditional/physical art products too (and I don't think the other interested customers have expressed interest in traditional art products) maybe because I'm not so good at them? Haha  Take your time, see which one appeals to you most and is within your budget :)

Physical goods will incur a shipping/postage fee that you'll need to pay though, which I have yet to figure out but it shouldn't be too much (about one US dollar I think?), since it's just an envelope and not some big bulky parcel :XD:

It'd be cool to try out sending something one-of-a-kind overseas *daydreams*
Carinaconstellation Featured By Owner Mar 12, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
*also late reply*
Ooh, yay :D That sounds good. I never payed something online with my debit card before... I wonder if it'll work :P Otherwise I can also do e-banking where I transfer my money to your bank account. I know it works in Switzerland well, but I'm not so sure if I can do it outside...
I can give you my email. I'll do it per note.

Thanks ^^ Glad to hear that :D The problem I have about having a digital drawing is that I'll just have it on my computer and not know what to do with it. I guess I could get it professionally printed and then hang it in my room somewhere :P unless you're going to print it but I think that's a bit complicated... So I think a bookmark would be best for me, although I'd love to have a digital drawing ;n; I have lots of key chains already xD I don't think I'd have space for another. A bookmark is best. I read a lot and lose my page often because I'm too lazy to just buy a bookmark so that doesn't happen :XD: also I just use a strip of paper and that goes lost after a while... Well that's decided. And if it has the Librarian on it that would be hilarious :D Yep, yep. I've decided ^^

I don't mind it being a bit more costly. I figured it wouldn't be in a parcel XD That'd be pretty over exaggerated and unnecessary for something that isn't big. In my currency that'd be 4.50 CHF (Swiss Francs) total then... that's pretty cheap o.O A book mark costs here roughly 10.- CHF to 20.- CHF (in US-Dollars: 10.18$- 20.35$) 

It'd be cool to receive something from another continent (*u*)

JemiDove Featured By Owner Feb 29, 2016  Student Digital Artist
Whoops, my bad ^^; Updated it :)
SuperHedgehogirls Featured By Owner Feb 29, 2016  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Lol ok
Oneirio Featured By Owner Feb 29, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
Ah, I would totally commission you if 1, I had money and 2, I was old enough to have paypal. Alas, I am both poor and too young. I hope you get lots of commissioners tho!
JemiDove Featured By Owner Feb 29, 2016  Student Digital Artist
Ahhh haa I know that feeling all too well. :XD:
I hope my prices aren't over exorbitant tho, I based them on minimum wage of most countries (which is usually around $6-7 per hour)

Thanks anyway!
SuperHedgehogirls Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2016  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
so in any chance do you or not draw tmnt with oc? i need a cover for my story a secret`s past tmnt au fanfic i just dont know if you do those?
JemiDove Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2016  Student Digital Artist
Do you mean the official TMNT characters or fan characters? Or both?

I try not to do fan characters but I could try, since this is outside of Sonic.
SuperHedgehogirls Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2016  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
yea i meant both but how does it go do i pay first or wait ti`ll its nearly finish?
JemiDove Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2016  Student Digital Artist
I'm still working out how Paypal works, so give me some time. I will put your name on the "Interested" list for now, will get back to you soon!

Have you used Paypal before? :O
SuperHedgehogirls Featured By Owner Feb 29, 2016  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
no its my first time sadly 
Phaenur Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2016
Not going to reserve a slot yet, wait until I actually have a job first!  All the same, I might just keep you in mind to help me lock in a mental image of one of my story characters someday, once I *finally* have the money to pay for it.  I'm not sure, if anything these prices feel a little cheap to me, but then again I'm the guy who set his tutoring prices below minimum wage so I'm probably not the right person to ask about how much to charge.  Anyway, hope this turns out to be fun as well as profitable once you wrap up your last assignments and get a decent break for a change!
JemiDove Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2016  Student Digital Artist
Oh wow, that'd be cool to work on coming up with a character's look instead of drawing from an existing reference image! :la: Never done that before so it'd be a real treat, I hope I can meet your expectations >v<;

Yeah I know my prices are below minimum wage, but I've already compared my speed and skill to others around my skill level (or higher than that) and decided that these prices are fair as a side thing during the holidays. I might increase in the future, but I'll stay with these prices for now. To test the waters.

Will keep you in mind; I've updated the waiting list at the bottom to list both reserved slots and interested slots, and I've placed you under the "Interested" list ;)
JemiDove Featured By Owner Aug 2, 2016  Student Digital Artist
Note to self when I reopen commissions:

1. Update types: Add "Fusion style" (inked painting)
2. Change "Detailed drawing" to "Detailed cel-shade"
3. Remove "glow under lineart" and "plain" of "Simple cel-shade" (they're all too old/simple)
4. Merge "thin lineart" to remaining "Simple cel-shade".
5. Draw commission sample sheet?
TheJege12 Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2016  Hobbyist Filmographer
I already know what imma get X3
JemiDove Featured By Owner Edited Feb 2, 2016  Student Digital Artist
Now with the prices out, maybe you'd like to confirm which style(s) you'd likely get? :D
I'll put ya second on the "Interested" list! :la:

Edit: OH YEAH I remember a long time ago you mentioned you'd be interested in receiving traditional art from me too? 
TheJege12 Featured By Owner Feb 3, 2016  Hobbyist Filmographer
Ah thank yous! >u<
I will DEFINITELY commission you. ; u ;

Ohh I did? :0
