ASK FOR A QUOTE
Doing illustrations means having to create everything from scratch. Going from a blank canvas to a fully realized painting takes time. How much time? It depends on the complexity of the illustration. Painting a water drop is not the same as having to paint a whole sea.
This means that I can't give you an exact price unless I know what you want me to paint. If you have a particular cover in mind, feel free to contact me to ask for a quote. Don't forget to tell me the genre, whether it's an eBook or a paperback cover, and the general idea you have in mind.
If you don't have a project in mind yet and would only like to know the general price range for my covers, I have added them below.
If you're on a budget, let me know, and I'll brainstorm design concepts that are beautiful and eye-catching but require less time to make so as to fit your budget.
Payment is done through Paypal and it can be done full upfront or 70%-30%. If you decide on the latter, then 70% is paid upfront, but the other 30% is only paid once you see the fully realized cover. Once you send the rest of the payment, I send you the full-resolution files.
GENERAL PRICE ranges
Factors that will affect the price:
- number of characters
- how much of the character is painted (waist-up or full body)
- how detailed the character is (do they wear a simple white dress or a super detailed gown with frills and pearls)
- complexity of the background
Adult/Young Adult eBook Cover
Typically 170-290 USD
+300 USD if the design includes multiple characters and/or complex background.
Middle-Grade eBook Cover
Typically 210-290 USD
S150-200 USD for simpler designs
+ 300 USD if the design includes multiple characters and/or complex background.
Early Reader eBook Cover
Typically 90-190 USD
+200 USD if the design includes multiple characters and/or complex background.
Spine and Back Cover
The added spine and back cover is usually 70-90 USD, unless you want an illustrated back cover with characters and/or other complex elements, then it'll typically be 100-180 USD.
AUDIOBOOKS AND DUST JACKETS
When commissioning a paperback, you have the option to get an audiobook cover and a dust jacket, each for an extra 15 USD. If you ask for both, that will be 30 USD, of course.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact me. :)
