Don’t forget to consult the « to read » section below, it will answer all your questions!
The average price depends above all on the techniques of the order you wish to place and the time it will take to complete. A black & white thumbnail is much faster to make than a fully painted HD poster. The final dimensions of the illustration depend largely on the desired technique and level of detail required: little detail is put into a postcard drawing, while an illustration with strong detail and decoration will require a poster format. The final quality depends on the medium: a book cover may be in about A5 format, but it requires the level of detail and richness of a poster, for example, which explains why the price will then be high.
The prices below are indicative and may vary, generally by 20% depending on the order and your wishes.
Fan commissions and other character drawings ordered by individuals benefit from a 20% discount, but the number of these commissions is limited to 3 per month and I reserve the right to validate or refuse this discount depending on the nature of the order. But you have the right to ask for it if you are an individual.

The first third of the invoice due is paid upon acceptance of the quotation in the event of an order exceeding 150 €/CHF. Invoicing is to be paid upon receipt of the invoice within the period negotiated during the order and accepted at the time of acceptance of the quotation.
Invoicing is done by bank transfer or paypal.
Receipt of work & deadlines:
The works are sent to the client in high definition digital format, ready for use by a professional printer and in adapted file formats. In general, the order is delivered within 6 to 8 weeks, the deadline is usually specified at the time of acceptance of the quotation. A supplement is required if the source file is required (the PSD working format with its layers). This source file is NEVER provided by default, you must request it and pay the supplement.
Poster and artistic printing delivered to your home:
Thanks to the services of Redbubble, an online art shop where I sell my own work, I can have a poster print in A2 format, semi-gloss solid paper (185gr/cm2) and a 5 mm frame border delivered directly to your home in two weeks.
The price for printing and home delivery however adds 20€/CHF to the order price of the illustration.

Drawing in black and white is no easier than colour, especially with my style. This is why, according to the wishes of my clients, there will not always be any difference in price between a black & white illustration in poster format with a sought-after decor, and the same illustration in colour.
Digital painting requires work similar to traditional painting on paper, whether watercolour, acrylic or oil. This is why it takes time and is therefore more expensive.
I reserve myself, and this without discussion, any latitude when to accept or not an order. There are some things I don’t want to illustrate, others I don’t know how to do; the final decision is mine in this area.
