I'm going to do a "ladder" bidding process, the higher it goes, the more detail I will put in (images after the cut to give you an idea). The winning bidder will receive their art via e-mail within two weeks of my getting the image information. I will send a copy large enough to do a 8.5 by 11 print, a "web ready" copy, and if you want any "icon" sizes just let me know.
I will send you progress pictures along the way to make sure I'm going in the right direction. Typically, I do three "revision e-mails" so feel free to tell me "Hey, I want Captain Mal hugging my OC, not Serenity!" so I can fix it.
Starting bid: $40
Feel free to click on the images to see to bigger versions of them.
For $40 You'll get something at this quality level. Cell shading, simple background.
For $75 You'll get more detailed shading and clothing and characters interacting with their environment (e.g. if your character is wrecking the town in a Mecha)
For $100 Very detailed shading and lighting, I'll make it as "real" as I possibly can.
