Graphic Design Commissions

At the moment, I only have a limited number of set prices when it comes to design commissions. Interested in something that isn’t here? Contact me via email and I can get a quote for you!

Please note: All prices are in Australian Dollars, with a USD estimate next to them.


Logo Design – From Scratch: $50 (Roughly $35 USD)

If you have absolutely no idea what you want, I will work with you to create a logo design from scratch. This will come with 3 versions, transparent background, solid background, and a colour option.


Logo Design – Develop Concept: $30 (Roughly $21 USD)

If you have an idea that you want me to bring to life, this is the commission option for you. I will work with you to create the logo you have in mind. Please note that if you only know the theme/words/any single concept, this would fall under the From Scratch option. This option is for if you have a strong idea of exactly what you want the logo to look like.

A4 Poster: $35 (Roughly $25 USD)

An A4 poster design. These will print relatively well up to A3.

Business Card: TBD

Terms of Service – Art

Here are my terms of service for commissioning art from me, whether it be digital or traditional. By sending me payment for a commission, you acknowledge that you have read and agreed to my terms of service.

  1. I reserve the right to refuse a commission for anyone. I will only ever deny a commission with good reason, and you may of course ask why.
  2. I only accept payment through PayPal via goods and services.
  3. I can put commissions on hold, and can do payment plans, however I won’t start the commission until I receive full payment.
  4. You may request a refund before or as I complete the sketch, however after you approve the sketch, I cannot issue a refund.
  5. If, at any point, you no longer want the art, please let me know. I will stop making it, however again, I can’t issue a refund.
  6. I will send WIP images as I progress, and you are welcome to contact me if you haven’t heard from me in a few days, however please do not spam me, or contact asking for updates daily. I am a student, I have a life outside of art, and I may not be able to work commissions daily. I try to complete commissions within 1-4 weeks of payment, however this may change.
  7. If you need the art by a certain date, please let me know. I can work around deadlines, however if you need it within 1-3 days, or want to be bumped to the top of the queue, I require a rush fee of 20% the commission cost.
  8. With traditional art, I ask that you provide as many references as possible, and Copic colour numbers too, if you can. This will ensure that I don’t make mistakes, as it is much harder to change things traditional than it is digitally.
  9. If you would like something changed in the digital drawing, I can, however if i have already completed the shading, things like colour and lineart will be harder to change. Again, providing plenty of references will ensure that mistakes won’t happen.
  10. The price of shipping a traditional badge is included in the overall price, however if you want a digital piece printed and shipped, an additional cost will need to be negotiated before initial payment.
  11. After I have completed the art, it is yours, however you absolutely may not resell it to make profit, whether it be digital or traditional. If you are selling the character with the art, you may include the cost of art in the price of the character. I would like to know if you do sell the character, to see where my art goes, however this is entirely up to you.
  12. Traditional badges are laminated and placed in an A5 envelope to send. If you would like additional protection, such as posterboard and a plastic cover, it will cost $5 USD extra. This is optional, as I have never had a bad experience with shipping my art the way I do, however if you want to be careful, the option is there.
  13. I reserve the right to post artwork, whether completed or a work in progress, however if you don’t want me posting it ever, or until a specific date, please let me know why. If there is not a valid reason, I may not accept the commission. This is to protect myself from art thieves.

I will draw:

Animals, ‘Furries’, Humans, Plants/Trees, Cars and other Vehicles, Natural or Unnatural backgrounds, Clothing, Gore, Some violence/weapons.

I won’t draw:

NSFW material, Kinks, Inflation, Abusive or Offensive material, Racist, Homophobic or Sexist material, Political material.

Don’t see something listed here? Feel free to ask!

Why you shouldn’t compare yourself to others.

I see a lot of people comparing themselves to others, and in my opinion, much of it is unfair. We are all very, very different. Our experiences and how we deal with them is different, our opinions of other people’s actions is different. So why do we still constantly compare ourselves?

For example, if someone is really truly heartbroken because their hamster died, don’t tell them, “Don’t be upset, there are people who are your age who have lost their parents.” Why? Because what if this person who has lost their hamster is experiencing their worst heartbreak yet? What if they haven’t experienced a worse sadness before?

Although the death of a pet and the death of a parent are very different, the two people could both be feeling the worst they have ever felt.

It is good to appreciate that your situation is better than others, if you feel comfortable doing that, but don’t use it against them.

And another thing, don’t immediately assume that to this person their hamster has less value to them than say, a parent. What if their parents had abandoned them at an early age, and this hamster was their only solace?

Take that example and apply it to situations you have witnessed or been a part of before you comment. Just ask yourself, is it really fair so compare their feelings to your own or to others’? Is it really fair to compare the value of an object to how much or little the object means to you?

But again, this is just my opinion, and is not necessarily right, wrong or fact.

Free Images

Are you an artist, video maker or just someone who likes using pretty pictures as backgrounds? You might be interested in a few links I have for you!

I often see people saying things like “credit to google”. This is really, really bad. In some cases, illegal. Although many images that can be found online are free, many others are not. Also, Google is a search engine, so crediting the search engine provides no real acknowledgements to the photo’s owner.

If you use image released under the CC0 license may be used for any legal personal and some commercial purposes without having to credit the photographer. (Find more information here)

I have compiled a small list of my personal favourite free-to-use image websites for you!

Pexels: https://www.pexels.com/

Pexels is absolutely amazing, this is the website I use most. Pexels images are gorgeous, stunning quality, plentiful, and may be used for legal personal and commercial uses, provided the image is not used in offensive or illegal way. Pexels also offers CC0 videos, but on a different website.

More on their license: https://www.pexels.com/photo-license/

Pixabay: https://pixabay.com/ 

Pixabay is pretty good too! I haven’t used it as much, but I think it might have a few more photos than Pexels, so I always have it as a backup if I can’t find what I want on Pexels. Many images are shared between the websites, so don’t fret if you only want to use one website!

License and other information: https://pixabay.com/en/service/faq/

Unsplash: https://unsplash.com/

I have only just discovered Unsplash today, but from what I can tell so far, it’s just as amazing as the other websites. The first few images I saw were beautiful. On their license information page there is a lovely demonstration on how to properly give credit, even though it isn’t required for Unsplash photos.

FreeImages: http://www.freeimages.com/

I don’t know much about this website, it’s a bit bigger, popularity wise, than the other websites (I think). I haven’t used it much, I just saw it mentioned somewhere. The license agreement is much longer on this website, and there are paid account options, leading me to believe not all images are CC0. Regardless, it is still another resource for you and your endeavours!

That’s it from me! Good luck all, contact me if you need any help! The featured image used is from Pexels!

What is Art?

In my last post, I mentioned a project I have to do for school. I said I would like to possibly interview some people on what art means to them, but then I thought of a better idea. I’ll post some questions here, and if anyone wants to, you can email me the answers! So to those who do answer, thank you kindly. To those who don’t, that is completely fine! I’m sure you have other things you need to get done c:

Here are the questions. Just copy and paste, keep the bold titles but remove all else, chuck it in word document or simply an email, then send it to me at crepethepancake@gmail.com:

~~~~~~~

  1. How old are you? (optional)
  2. Do you do/create any sort of art? (If no, skip to question 5)
  3. What type(s) of art do you do? (audio, performance, visual, digital, writing, etc)
  4. How long have you been doing art?
  5. What interests you most about art?
  6. If you had to lose one of you main senses (sight, smell, touch, etc), which one would it be, and how would that affect the impact art has on you?
  7. How important do you believe art is to the world?
  8. How important is art to you?
  9. If you could could change one thing about art what would you change?

Thank you again! If you would like to fill this out anonymously, just post it on my ThisCrush.

New Layout + Update

I’ve recently updated my website, so it has a much cleaner look to it. I’m pretty happy with it, but if anyone has any feedback, I would love to hear it.

I’m currently working on art + writing projects for school, so owed art and other pieces will be slow- But I will still work on them when I get around to it. I have my Big Picture exhibition coming up in six or seven weeks, and I’m basing it around the question “What is Art?”. I hope to include my personal beliefs on what art is, how art can be incorporated into other subjects, and possibly how art affects other people.

I am aiming to produce some visual pieces for this task: A work in progress of a Portal Fan-fiction I am writing (And it’s not a romance heavy fan-fic, it will be more of an AU) or possibly the completed work, as well as some concept art for it.

If anyone would like to be interviewed by me on what art means to them, contact me at crepethepancake@gmail.com, or via my Instagram.

Thanks for reading,

-Laura
