Commissions ( Last Updated: August 19th, 2013 )
You or your character drawn exactly how they would appear in a GU strip. You
provide the picture/screenshot. I sketch, ink, color, and send you the final
digital image. No approvals. No special requests. No changes. Quick and Easy!
Typically 5x6" @ 300 dpi.
(If you actually want you or your character to appear in the comic,
we can probably negotiate a deal; but, it's not cheap.)
This is the most common commission. It's a single half body commissions drawn
to order. Caricature or Character, whichever strikes your fancy. More detail
than the GU-ized option. You get sketch approval before it moves to ink and
color approval on the final piece. Typically 6x8" @ 300dpi.
Head to toe interpretation of your request. The pose and setting is up to you.
As with the Half Body commission type, you get sketch approval before it moves to ink and
color approval on the final piece. Typically 8x10" @ 300dpi.
In some cases a request will be more complex than the standard price covers. If
this is the case I will discuss options with you to meet your budget. Additional
complexity is billed at $50/hr
. This includes non-standard requests such
as Logo Illustrations, Dragons, Super-sized images, etc.

This pricing structure applies only to artwork created for personal,
non-commercial use. If you want artwork that will be associated with a business or for-profit
venture, commission work will be billed at $100/hour.
"I asked Woody to take on a very difficult commission: recreate a particularly memorable scene from EverQuest
that occurred over 10 years ago using only low resolution screen shots and and my own memory of what our
characters looked like; and to top it off, to do so at nearly a 7,000x10,000 resolution fit for hanging as a
canvas print as a gift for my old gaming buddy. Woody has a unique ability to take a brief description like
I provided and turn it into an amazing work of gaming art. I could not be more pleased with my experience
and the great effort Woody put into making this commission special. I highly recommend his services.

Collect as much info as you can about the piece you want including links, screenshots,
pictures, your deadline, your budget range, and as much detail as you can give me about
what you have in mind and send it to:
Please keep in mind that, like the color work, the sketch is produced digitally. This means
the entire image only exists in a digital format.
Unless arrangements have been discussed to physically ship you a print of the complete commission,
the final image will be delivered to you via email or made available as a download from the GU Comics
Invoices - IMPORTANT!
Every GU Commission is invoiced via e-mail. If you require a physical invoice,
please let me know and I get one out in the mail to you after the commission is
Accepted Payment Methods
All payments are handled through PayPal, which means we can accept the four major credit cards, most
debit cards, direct paypal payments and e-checks.
When you commission artwork, the finished artwork belongs to you. This means
that at the end of the project the artwork is your to do with as you please.
I do keep copies of all images for both my physical and digital portfolios.
Pieces are sketched and colored in Adobe Photoshop. The final product will be
delivered at print resolution (300dpi) and internet resolution (72dpi) unless
you request otherwise.
Please keep in mind though that the higher the
final resolution, the longer the project will take, and thus the more time you
will have to pay for.
If you've read the info above and decided that you might like to commission
some artwork, email me at:
Include the following information
to help me get an idea of what would be required
to complete the piece: Is it a caricature or a character sketch? If it's the latter, include
the character's name, screenshots, character details (hair color, eye color, etc.), a
description of exactly what you want (as specific as you can be), and anything else you think
I should know to make the image look like what you're imagining.
After reading over the description, I'll email you and we'll talk about your commission
further. When we're in agreement on what you're looking for, and the cost of the work, I
will Invoice you via PayPal. When this Invoice is paid, work will begin on your commissions
as soon as is possible. Because of the number of commission requests I tend to get (when I
take them), please be aware that the usual waiting period before work commences can be up
to several months. If you have a deadline sooner than this, you will need to make arrangements
in advance of payment as it may impact your total cost.
For commission level other than "GU-ized", when the digital sketch is complete, it will be
emailed to you for your approval. If changes need to be made, this is the best time to
request them. Major changes later on COULD lead to further billable hours. If you approve
of the sketch, I'll beging the ink and color phase immediately.
When the colored image is complete, I will email it to you. If color changes need to be made,
just ask. Color changes are easy and can be made at NO cost to you.
When you're content with the image let me know that you consider the project done, I'll
thank you again and our business is done.
I reserve the right to decline any commission request for any reason.
