Commissar Yarrick - final pics, CMON link... and a possible commision service!

First let's get the pics out of the way:






Oh and here's the CoolMiniOrNot voting link

Now on to the juicy stuff. I am thinking of starting a commision service. I feel my painting skills, while not great, are adequate, my display cabinet is filling up and I've grown less emotionally attached to my minis as the years go by. So what I have in mind?

I'd like to focus on character minis. I could either take up commisions for character minis or sell some of the character minis I paint as one off pieces. And here is where I need your help. I'm new to commision painting so I don't know much about pricing. Most commision companies don't have a set charge for this type of painting so a web search yielded no results. I would like to know what you think would be a reasonable price for a paintjob like that on Yarrick. For the real hardcore fans of this blog you can look up other minis I have painted and propose prices for them as well so I can get an even better idea of how to price my services. Either way I'd greatly appreciate your help.

  1. Fantastic job on the face, the skin tones are brilliant, really nice work!

    I think you could have gone for another lighter top edge highlight on the yellow (and maybe the red), but other than (and it's a really minor criticism) it's a lovely paint job.

  3. Thanks everybody. Life has been a bit hectic lately so I didn't have any time to post but I'll be back soon.

    Andy: You're right. I guess I was lazy or misjudged the intensity of the highlight. I always think my highlights will end up too strong when they are actually too soft.

    Stahly: It's nice to see a blog with even more awesome painting from you and other painters. I've already subscribed and put a link in my blog!
