|Customer Testimonials: |
"Istebrak demonstrates ideal professionalism and prompt service. Her artwork is fantastic, and I recommend her work for authors looking for book covers. I gave her a blurb of my novel, and she applied the theme wonderfully into the artwork. 5 out of 5 stars." Joshua Taghon, Writer.
"Istebrak is a dedicated, creative and very skilled artist who brings her own style, ideas and suggestions into a project to enhance the overall quality of the composition. Her level of proficiency, as well the diligence and speed with which her work progressed left a very positive impression with me. My communication with Istebrak was frequent throughout the project; our interaction was friendly and easy without exception. I was especially intrigued by her insistence to complete this illustration to my full and utter satisfaction and by how easily she incorporated any revisions. Altogether, Istebrak has, in the most agreeable and dedicated manner, presented me with a surprisingly fresh piece of art that reflects both her artistic style and my personal ideas. I would happily hire her services again, if a suitable project should come up." P. K. Rivulet, Writer.
"This commission went above and beyond my expectations. Istebrak's skill has helped in creating a stunning piece of work which has fully captured the characters I wanted. She was fully able to incorporate my ideas with her own artist capabilities and create what is an amazing representation of my fictional characters. She stayed in communication throughout the whole process keeping me fully aware of the stages and asking for input whenever she needed it. The speed at which the work was completed was unfathomable and yet did not detract from the final piece in anyway. I would most definitely work with Istebrak again." David P. Ellis, Writer.
"A fantastic job for a remarkable art piece. The quality and experience was remarkable. A 10/10 experience." -Daniette Wood, Arcen Games
"With a high quality piece of work delivered well on time, Istebrak proves herself a true professional in what she does. Clear and simple, yet extensive communication is maintained from start to finish, allowing customer to make adjustments and convey their thoughts directly on canvas through the artist's hands. The result is perfected to the last detail and nothing short of brilliant in every aspect."
"Istebrak works quickly and provides great quality artwork. She communicates regularly and explains her decisions on why certain things was drawn the way it was. It was informative and helpful for making further decisions about how to best shape the artwork. She's eager to help in anyway possible and the whole process was smooth." Reid Finn, Writer.
MATTE, LANDSCAPE, CREATURE or PORTRAIT work ranges from 100-400 USD, but prices, again, are always negotiable and I make my hours work with any kind of budget--I refuse no offer.
*prices can change depending on your budget* -- remember that.
Note me for commissions.
Payment is through Paypal on email@example.com
As per my rule--anything below $60.00 in commission price cannot be payed in halves, but in full, as the total taxing charge outweighs more than 20 % of the total price charge--so payments 60 or lower are payed in full, before or after the painting finishes--it is your choice.
Because of Paypal's billing, please include 4.2% percent of your payment added onto the personal payment as well. Certain countries (anyone but Canada I'm guessing) bill me extra for using paypal. I don't end up getting the amount I requested. This dollar or two is added to your payment.
Because of the distance between the commissioners vision and the artist's vision, the commissioner leaves certain aspects of the design to the artist. We conceptualize the aesthetics and project them forward for the project, and the project forms around therein, while the concept forms around the project. If by the end of the commission you are unsatisfied, remember that it is up to you to present and pitch the vision and inspiration, and that there is a limit to the control you have over my role after I receive the initial pitch (think baseball). This does not mean that I do not allow input, as a matter of fact, I invite it, I broadcast the process for you, send you updates on the minute, etc. Please be aware there is a certain chance of dissatisfaction and risk when commissioning an artist for a vision, especially if the vision is personal and private. When hiring an artist, it is best to be absolutely sure they have the potential to recreate your personal vision and bring it to life.
