So maybe you've been thinking about it for awhile, or maybe you just found out, either way, bespoke pieces are available for commission! Here's everything to know up front.
Some of the work I have done.
I have created pet portraits, custom animals, and fursonas, I do tell people the more pictures you give me for a pet portrait, the better it will turn out, so I can see your creature from every angle. For the fursona route, a reference sheet is usually sufficient.
Here are just a few examples of previous work...
The Price Tag
Making a needle felted anything takes a lot of time and patience. And depending on how big or elaborate the piece is, the price is reflected accordingly. I have tried to streamline the pricing, but the best I can do before seeing what you would actually like me to make is a list of basic starting prices.
Bird Clips: Needle felted small birdies with metal clips for you to decorate your space or even yourself! Approximately 3-4 inches tall. Starting from $75USD
Small needle felted creature: Choose your favorite animal or feral version of your fursona. Approximately 1-4 inches on its longest side. Starting from $85 USD.
Medium-sized needle felted creature: Choose your favorite animal or feral version of your fursona. Approximately 5-9 inches on its longest side. Starting from $145 USD.
Large needle felted creature: Choose your favorite animal or feral version of your fursona. Approximately 10-15 inches on its longest side. Starting from $205 USD.
12" Anthro Style Custom: Needle felted anthro style custom character. Approximately 12 inches tall. Starting from $210 USD.
Based on the final quote for your custom commission, I will require a percentage of the cost up front before I start work. This is non-refundable. The rest you don't have to pay until you are happy with the final product, although you can choose to pay everything at once.
Shipping costs are additional to the price quote for your commission.
How Long will it take?
That's a great question, and again I can only provide a general estimation. Needle felting in general is time consuming. Sometimes something that should be simple takes seemingly forever, while something that is huge or complex can go quickly. I can never know for sure, but I will always give you updates on the progress I am making. And if you haven't heard from me in awhile, you are always welcome to check in. ^_^
Here is a list of general estimates for the time it will take to make your commission:
Bird Clips: About 1-3 Weeks
Small needle felted creature: About 1-2 months
Medium-sized needle felted creature: About 5-8 months
Large needle felted creature: About 8-12 months
12" Anthro Style Custom: About 8-12 months
I will generally work on commissions in the order I get them. Currently I have 8 slots available.
Shipping time is not included in the work time estimate, so let me know up front if you have a deadline.
And that about sums it up.
