Maybe my favorite commission I’ve ever done. I can’t believe I never posted this–it was done over two years ago! This piece was intended to have a noir movie poster vibe. It’s a larger piece than I normally do as it is on 18″x24″ Bristol. As with all my commissions it is all done by hand, including the red (I believe it was a water acrylic that was used). Also, if memory serves, I did the line art on the background buildings in pen (either Microns or PITT) and all the foreground elements are brush and Sumi ink. Tones, as always, are ink wash.
Below is the initial sketch, the rough pencils, rough pencils with logo blocked out and rough pencils with tones.
UPDATE: THE COMMISSION LIST FILLED UP SUPER FAST! NO MORE IN 2012. STAY TUNED–I’LL POST HERE WHEN LIST REOPENS!
THANKS FOR THE GREAT RESPONSE EVERYONE!
It’s been a long time since I’ve been able to find time in my schedule for commissions! As a matter of fact, it’s been over two years since I’ve done one of my full-on/Premiere/Platinum Edition commissions. But, now that I’m in a groove on Sixth Gun–and with Christmas just around the corner–I thought I’d open up the list. There are a limited number of spots available so hit me up soon if you’re interested.
First off, I am changing the size and price on my commissions from what they used to be. Looking at the samples I’ve provided here you can get a sense of what I put into them. They are all inked with brush and Sumi ink and then toned with and ink wash. This ends up taking a lot longer than the standard commission and so I’ve decided to bump up my prices from $150 to $250. But, I’m also going to bump up the size of the art as well. In the past, these commissions were all done on 11″x14″ Bristol. The new standard will be 14″x17″.
I am not taking any smaller commissions or straight black and white ones at this point. If I do so in the future I will post it here on the blog, through Twitter (@brihurtt), through tumblr (http://brihurtt.tumblr.com/), on my Facebook page, the Sixth Gun Facebook page, as a coded message on Craig’s List and possibly even through flag semaphore.
If you are interested in commissioning a 14″x17″, inked and toned illustration please email me: email@example.com
14″x17″ inked and toned illustration … $250
